Active-Duty Military Forbidden To Buy the Knives In 3...2...1...

"Tucson Marine sells 'Infidel' knives."

With the Arabic word for "infidel" etched on the blade, and some of them tempered with pig's blood, just to make them as offensive as possible.

The purpose of the story in The Stars and Stripes, of course, is to paint a target on the knifemaker's back and drive him out of business. It wouldn't surprise me at all if the newspaper was tipped off by someone butthurt over the existence of the knives.

And the possibility of the knifemaker not even being a genuine military veteran can't be dismissed, given the prevalence of stolen valor phonies out there.
