    Default Opening Heads - Using the Heretic (online class)

    I've been threatening to offer a class on the Heretic for awhile. It's finally time!

    Saturday, February 27, 5pm Pacific. This one will be over Zoom, so it's available to everyone.

    Paypal $25 to Brent.Yamamoto.SI@gmail.com and I will send the Zoom link to you.

    What we will cover:
    *Background, context & design philosophy
    *Low-level vs. high-level violence (focus will be on the latter)
    *How to carry
    *How to access (the draw)
    *Methods of gripping (and why this is important)
    *Brief comparison with other "knuckleduster" implements
    *Striking
    *Training exercises
    *Q&A

    I don't think that using the Heretic is particularly complicated, but there are a few tricks and things worth knowing. Hope to see you there!

    Probably won't be unless Gabe wants to commission a run of them. I commissioned this run and so am selling them direct. Unfortunately I have to sell them at a higher price; I could only afford to make so many. PM me if interested.

    2.0 is the same design as the original, just in Aluminum or G10. Both are very light (I still like the weight of the original, but lighter is better for some things, I use all of them depending on what I'm doing). The aluminum will hold up better as an actual bottle opener. The G10 is a bit more brittle and over time the bottle opener bit will give way...but it is more than strong enough for its real intended purpose. The benefit of the G10 is that it's non-metallic.

    Looks like a work day for me. Any chance of catching a recording for the same price?

    I have a couple of the brass Heretics and I think I know how to use them. I look forward to this class next Saturday to learn the true methodology.

    Supposedly yes. But don’t send any $ yet, let me verify it actually works first.

    Another +1 for a digital or even DVD copy of this.

    A few guys have ordered Heretics but they may not arrive in time for the class.

    Of course having a Heretic in hand is better, however, attending class live is good even if your Heretic hasn't arrived yet. With the exception of drawing from the pocket, just about everything can be done with a fixed blade or folding knife. Hell, a spoon will work.

    Hopefully I can test the Zoom recording feature this afternoon. Assuming it works, I'll share the video link with everyone that pays for class, whether attending in person or not.

    Thanks for the interest guys, I appreciate it!
