Inverted Edged Tactics DVD by George Matheis - Review by Terry Trahan
George sent me his Inverted Edged Tactics DVD at my request for review, and I requested it for one main reason. Of course, I will say whether or not this is a good instructional, but I wanted to see for myself if the claims that this was a rip off of the Reverse Edge tactics that I have been affiliated with, and teaching, for several years. After watching it a few times, and being very familiar with all the material involved, I can say without reservation that it is not Reverse Edge methodology. It will work as an adjunct to FGEU bladework, but is significantly different.
Learn about the Professional Carry Option
The reasoning behind taking your time in the selection your EDC tools is so that you don't end up wasting time and money on things that you will not carry. Once you have chosen a fixed blade to carry the next logical step is to figure out how to carry it no matter the environment you find yourself in. My solution to this is what I call the Professional Carry Option or hereafter refereed to as the PCO.
