Knives by AVi Nardia

My swords school is the sword of giving life school and when I started to teach Combat, I noticed that many teach how to kill with knife and explain the knife in wrong way. You can kill with a stone... the knife is the most important tool for humans. We use it for our survival every day and with connecting to my personal history and way of life and principles and with consulting with knife masters.


“Krav in Hebrew means Combat and Kravi is Combatant or Warrior.

As Martial artist teaching Krav Maga and Krav Panim El Panim I wanted warrior knife.

My Son Ishai is Computer designer and we Design “warrior” as for being easy carry knife as also Legal blade to fit anyone carry daily life as a tool for most basic needs as we say “best knife is the one you have in your hand when you need it”.


Isreali Tracker Knife

Based on the origin of the knife, from my father, and with my experiences as Olympic fencing coach and knife fighting teacher as also Japanese swordsmanship I come to design this knife which will be the base for a workshop we teach in KAPAP called “Only Knife” and the students need take ONLY a knife and go into the woods all by themselves and survive.

Designed for building shelters, preparing food, water, fire, and taking care for all their needs to survive. The idea is that with my g knife you save life and survive. This is the main idea for this knife- to give life, not to take life.



A unique person with unique qualities, incredible knowledge and humility as a few… A very good teacher showing a lot of patience with all his students. He is never tired to answer everyone’s questions. Avi Nardia stands for peace, love and compassion and that’s what I’m sticking with.
