    Yes! Tacticool before it was a thing. I had one of their little keychain knives I carried in my wallet.

    I had wondered whatever became of Tekna, they had some different thinking and interesting items. Way back then, Soldier of Fortune interviewed the founder of Tekna. IIRC, as a young man he escaped from Communist Eastern Europe using a homemade, battery powered, scuba diver propulsion device.

    Bought a Tekna dive knife (the stainless steel one with the plastic dive sheath). Carried it for years in AD. Leant it to a friend for a trip he was going on and he lost it. Man, miss that knife. I might just have to get one of the new ones.
