More than any other contemporary technological device, the cell phone has revolutionized our day-to-day lives. These remarkable devices grant us access to information, consolation, recreation and emergency assistance that would have been unimaginable a generation ago and have therefore become our constant companions.

Cell phones can be lifesavers if you need immediate medical attention or you find yourself lost in the woods or stranded on the roadside. Unfortunately, our phones are not of much use if they run out of battery, get damaged or can’t find a signal. With this in mind, Louis Krudo has designed a new personal protection tool that you can always have available on your person.
The Krudo KTC54 cell phone case can keep you alive against a deadly attacker, whether that is a dangerous animal predator or a less than savory character who wants to take advantage of you in your distressed state. Made of 6061 T6 Aluminum, the Krudo KTC54 cell phone case is stylish, cool and effective as a standalone phone case, but it also incorporates a slim, stainless steel push dagger . Thin and unobtrusive, this Krudo Chevron blade is available in an instant and, unlike other personal protection tools, requires no extra effort to carry. You’ll have your cell phone on you anyway. Meanwhile, a spring-loaded retention device holds the blade discreetly in place until you need it.
The push dagger is to combat bladecraft what the compact pocket pistol is to tactical firearms. It is likely not the ideal tool for a knife fight, but it is often the one you have available. As the weapon you actually have on you is infinitely greater than anything left back at home in the gun box, the KTC54 means that you are never truly unarmed.
The overall concept of the Krudo case is inspired and its execution is brilliant. The workmanship is impeccable, and it’s in the case’s details, like the hidden onboard Allen wrench, that Krudo’s genius is clearly evident. For more information, visit krudoknives.com or call 727-753-8455.
