I am pleased to announce the special Freedom Defender collaboration with Hall of Fame UFC Fighter Randy Couture and the Affliction Clothing Company. As many of you know, in 2009 Randy formed a non-profit charity called the Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation to help American Veterans in need.

Affliction & Emerson Knives Freedom Defender Flipper

When Randy and his team contacted us to find out if we would be interested in joining his effort, we didn’t just say yes. It was a resounding, “Hell Yes”! “What can Emerson Knives do?” Was our next question. “We would like you to make a knife for us.” Was the reply. And so it began. I am pleased to present to you, the special edition Freedom Defender CQC-7 Flipper model knife. The knife features red liners, an official Affliction Clip secured with three red screws and the official Affliction Freedom Defender logo.

This is a very unique and special edition of one of the most iconic tactical folding knives of all time and it is for an extremely noble cause and endeavor. I know that many of these young soldiers have told Randy that they followed his career and that he was a hero and inspiration to them. Heck he was a hero to me. And it is an honor to join him in giving thanks and honoring those who are the heroes that keep our country, our families and our way of life protected and safe from harm.

In addition to this special edition knife you will also receive the special edition Affliction, Emerson x Freedom Defender t-shirt made by Affliction. I’ve worn Affliction t-shirts and clothes for years and now I get to wear one with our name right alongside the Affliction logo and the Freedom Defender Team.
