Same organization, new name. The U.S. Knife & Tool Association name was a quick response to a developing situation when we first came up with the idea for this organization. We needed a better name; one that was more marketable, one that had a memorable domain name (that was available), and one that wouldn't be confused with the industry organization, AKTI. Knife Rights more clearly identifies what we are all about, the domain is easy to remember and it won't be confused with AKTI.
