    Morgan Atwood is a name I have not heard in some time, but he is a good guy who is serious about product design as well as customer service. He is also a martial artist, so he understands the whys of the designs and the carry systems.

    Glad to learn he is still around and still making stuff.

    Where did you find this maker? Usually I poke around instagram, but there's always another maker I have yet to hear of.

    I believe Morgan Atwood (and Ian Wendt) are both Shivworks alumni based on our chats, which gives me a warm+fuzzy as a knife buyer.

    I interacted with and bought a knife from Morgan back when Self Defense Forums was the place for serious self defense students to interact.

    BFE Labs was first mentioned once or twice on these forums around 2014 when I was still lurking and had not registered an account yet. It was also linked by Greg Ellifritz in one of his Weekly Knowledge Dumps on his blog.

    Glen Stilson and Cecil Burch are local to me and both mentioned Morgan's work in one of their classes sometime between 2018 and the end of last year. He was most recently brought back to my attention by Annette Evans several months ago for authoring one of the few comprehensive write-ups in the early days of the covid outbreak, under the No One Coming rebrand.

    To add a bit more context the above, I do not carry edged weapons and have never attended training to use them.

    Morgan at No One Coming and Matt at Zulu Bravo Kydex are the two makers I would seriously consider for custom nonmetallic blades. Both are serious students as well as craftsmen, and know first-hand what a tool must do under the pressures of coursework such as ECQC/others offered by the Shivworks Collective. For a production option, Morgan has stated the VZ daggers aren't a bad option.

    I had no idea BFE labs is now No one Coming. Thank you guys. Here's some older content of Atwood and Wendt:

    I don't know what happened to a lot of forums, but many are not what the used to be.

    Super thread drift inbound, but it seems a high percentage of dialed in conversation in our realms has shifted to social media sites, for better or worse.
