The Hon. Jenn Coffey offered this keynote address at the 2013 BLADE Show. Although a good deal of her speech talked about knife rights, she also mentioned counterfeiting.
“We have all seen the hard work, dedication and imagination of our friends and family stolen, and knock-offs made and sold as if they were the real thing,” Coffey said.
Another idea she addressed was pairing knife manufacturers with car dealers. Seat belt cutters are an important tool. Could it be time for the two sides to meet and offer seat belt cutters in new vehicles?
