DPx Gear founder and adventure-travel writer Robert Young Pelton sent this image out in an email blast today. It is of a senior ISIS commander, Abu Whoreallygivesacrap, who assumed room temperature in Syria this past August as the Pentagon now confirms. Robert made an astute observation as to this dirtbag’s poor knife choice: “Look at who is rocking a $70 Bear Grylls”.
Now I am not saying bad taste in knives is what got him killed, but he should have at least had the sense to carry one of Gerber’s better blades, like the Strong Arm.
Worst. Product-placement. Ever.
