Gary Paul Johnson knows what it's like to put your life on the line daily. He did it as a commander with the Shaker Heights Police Department, and tells the story of the creation of his 1* logo this way: "Back in 1986, my SWAT unit was fortunate during actual raids, but we seemed to average at least one minor injury per practice session. Other teams had similar problems, especially during SWAT competitions, so I decided to create something to remind everyond to be more careful.
Gary went on to design the logo in a shield shape similar to the U.S. Army's Big Red 1. It not only looks sharp and reminds one to be careful, but it provides the important stress relieving element of humor to police, fire, medical emergency and military teams who find themselves operating in a high risk environment and living on the edge.
All 1* designs feature AUS-8 stainless steel blades, chosen for edge retention and durability, black titanium nitride coated. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ serrated edges for rugged cutting tasks that break down standard cutting edges. All models feature the "Carson Flipper" extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an individual blade guard.
One-hand opening and closing is velvet smooth, the result of Teflon® bearings. The ambidextrous thumb stud with checkered surfact provides instant access in any circumstance. Every model features a removable black Teflon® plated stainless steel clothing/gear club.
If you work in a High Risk Environment, be careful out there! Carry one of the 1* model M16s. Designed for those who serve.
