My favorite fighter.... Roy Jones Jr.!

March 03, 2019

Boxing was my first fighting sport love. I like all the greats but I was always blown away at the skills of Roy Jones Jr. Take a look at this clip and check out the amazing speed, reach length, and stamina.

Obviously this is affecting Nok’s reputation since people are wary and can’t tell the difference by photos. Nok knives are very distinctive in looks and this makes it very confusing to consumers. Please feel free to repost this to get the word out! Thanks’ from John & Nok. Here are several pictures and an email from one customer that purchased a “knock off” Nok knife....
