Coye Knives Custom Ridgeback Giveaway

Today I’m happy to announce that the Monderno logo Coye Knives Ridgeback giveaway to raise money for Paws and Stripes is now live.

Ridgeback Giveaway

About the Knife

If you’re not familiar with Coye Knives or the Ridgeback specifically, you can read my full review here. The short version is that the Ridgeback is a custom made, small fixed blade made from Bohler N690 stainless steel. It has an overall length of 6.25″ and a blade length of 3.25″, and normally sells for around $325.

Thank you to Bill Coye, who generously donated this Ridgeback for the giveaway.

About Paws and Stripes

If you’re not familiar with Paws and Stripes, it’s a nonprofit organization that provides service dogs for wounded U.S. military veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries. The dogs, which come from shelters, along with highly trained service dog trainers, work with the veteran/dog teams, all of which is provided for free to the veteran.

Any veteran from any war knows the suffering involved with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). And now with so many men and women returning from the Middle East, the number of veterans in our country with PTSD is staggering. Add the frequent incidents with improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and you have a significant increase in Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) as well. Insurance companies do not cover service dogs to assist veterans with symptoms of PTSD and TBI — which often come together. The usual costs of getting a service dog are great: from $10,000 to $30,000 and sometimes up to $60,000, and would often include countless months seeking grant money to fund the purchase. The cost to complete canine training for a Paws and Stripesâ„¢ veteran/dog team is a minimum $2,500 and Paws and Stripesâ„¢ covers the cost through donations. The veterans never pay a penny.

    One of the charities that we support is Paws and Stripes. Great collaboration between Monderno, Coye Knives, and the followers of both. Even if we do not win, someone does, and the knife is icing on the cake!
