I have been collecting Southern Grind knives since there Genesis in 2011. I love what they stand for as a company- American made (in Georgia), Support veterans and military, earnings directly support a kids camp called Camp Southern Ground. The company was started by Zac Brown (Zac Brown Band) so these are his knife designs- you can tell he is a knife guy himself. I have always enjoyed his music and skill on stage, and his attention to detail translates over to his knife company. Kudos ZB!
