WHY ARE THE NO LIE BLADES TRAINING KNIVES SO EXPENSIVE?
This is a question that many have wondered and only some ask. In 1997 when we had the idea of making a marking training knife we researched dozens of training knives and found most were low quality, didn’t work well and if they did it wasn’t for long. We did not want to be in that category at all. If we were going to make something it was going to be the best.
No Lie Blades training knives are made using an investment mold cast wax loss system and is 356 aircraft aluminum, the inlayed felt is Industrial SAE level 2 industrial felt. The handle rap is military grade nylon para-cord which is hand tied and fused under heat lamps and the adhesives that we use are top grade high bond glue. This whole process is all done by hand (every step).
You may be saying that’s great Mr. No Lie Blades but how does that help me? Quality in function, quality in durability, quality in look and feel, quality in that it’s made in the USA, Eastern Pennsylvania to be exact. However the best answer for you is this is a training blade you will have for life. We have sold over 9000 training knives, have never had a knife returned and have only had one training knife break and that was by a US Marshalls special team group. These guys are mad dogs, have very intense training and it turned into a contest to see who could break the blade trying to engage a target. They were shocked at how well the training knife held up under serious pressure.
In closing if you want the cheapest training knife, this is not it. If you want the first and best marking training knife on the market at a reasonable price, you’re at the right place. Put yourself in the minds of some of our best customers that use our training knives as full time in-service training knives. FAM – Federal Air Marshall’s, United States Marines – MACE, FLETC – Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, ILEA Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and list goes on. These groups and organizations will not purchase or put up with anything less than high performance for their men and women whose lives are on the line. Why would you?

WHAT EXACTLY IS A NO LIE BLADE MARKING STICK AND WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
The No Lie Blades Marking sticks are animal fat based lipstick sticks that leave a dark red or purple streak on you/your clothes when stabbed or sliced at. This is a safe and nontoxic way to be “marked up” and give you that memorable feed back you’re looking for with the NLB training knives. Please Note: **We highly recommend you use clothing that can get marked up and tossed since this lipstick is fat based and is very difficult to wash out.**
