On Christmas Day 2019, the world lost an amazing human. Jeff Gladstone passed away after a heroic and valiant battle with cancer at the age of 36. He was surrounded by friends and family. Jeff loved life, chased adventure, and was passionate about his work. He was always there for his friends and family and was the first one to volunteer to lend a helping hand. Jeff was an extremely well-respected wildlife officer based out of El Cajon, San Diego County.

In honor of his passing, CALWOF and V Nives have partnered on a limited edition knife commemorating the life and service of Warden Gladstone. The Thin Green Line Trailblazer knife is etched with Warden Gladstone’s badge number and is limited to 100 knives. A special collaboration between Warden John Nores (Ret) and V Knives, this blade is sure to become your new best friend afield.

Some notes about the knife: An original design by retired Lieutenant John Nores and V NIVES founder, Mike Vellekamp, the Thin Green Line Trailblazer folding blade is the knife Nores dreamed of carrying throughout his 28-year special operations wildlife conservation career.  Designed for everyone (but with law enforcement, military and all other first responder needs paramount to its design) the Trailblazer is an everyday cutting implement and survival and defensive tool.

Lightweight, compact and with features like a D2 stainless steel corrosion-resistant treated blade, glass breaker, emergency harness cutter (for seatbelts, webbing, tactical rigging, etc.) and a lanyard that doubles as a defensive impact tool, the TGL Trailblazer’s versatility make it an ideal every day carry blade for everyone, and especially conservation officers worldwide.”

CALWOF will be donating 100% of the proceeds directly to Jeff’s family.
