Hi, my name is John Brown, knife enthusiast, and geologist, and the founder of The Tactical Knives.
TheTacticalKnives.com is a review and tips blog where we discuss, review knives as well as provide buying guides of different kinds of tactical knives, outdoor knives, kitchen knives as well as knife accessories. We have been administering this blog for almost 5 years. We bear all our expenses for this blog through affiliate marketing.
At the end of the year 2016, we took the decision that we will spend a particular portion of our income on the welfare of students. Only because of this reason, this $1500 Annual Student Scholarship Program has been started on January 1st, 2017.
After executing the first program with remarkable success, now we have started a 7th term scholarship contest on our blog. This is an ongoing Scholarship Program and we hope that as long as we will be continuing this blog, we will keep on leading this scholarship program.
