    Default UST knives and axes

    I'm looking for info for Ultimate Survival Technologies knives and/or axes. They do not sell directly to the public, and their web site does not have a "where to buy" function,(as of May 27). I have only seen a few pictures of their products, but I would like to get prices, availability, and maybe a quality rating from someone who has used them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Eric.

    A quick google search turned up a lot of retailers. Amazon is one.

    Okay, #22 is a loser for me: "Don't hurt their feelings. If they ask for you opinion, don't say anything they wont want to hear. You might risk losing them."

    AS is # 7: "Make eye contact. It is kind of unnerving when you are talking to someone and they keep moving their head around. You can't tell if they are listening or not. Whoever you're talking (or listening) to, look at them straight in the eye."

    Hmmm, come to think of it, this wouldn't work for a lawyer at all!....

    Besides these guys being total Richards, Eric, the knives look like junk.


    One customer bleated ;"Not bad for the price." Hahahahaha. OK.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    Looks like they are based here, in Jacksonville. If my travels take me near their storefront today I'll stop in. Their knives and ax that I looked at did not make me want to go out of my way for a visit.

    Yep! A real POS! I guess they thought that the "cool name" would bring the customers in!....

    UST was purchased by Revere Supply in 2011. They've made a number of changes in products some of which I didn't care for. The knives were actually added after Revere bought them.
