He has since held a series of administrative positions in, and taught international politics at, the university level in the Washington area and worked as a contract specialist on educational administrative policies in the Middle East. He currently lives in Alexandria, Virginia with his wife and their two children.

On today's Coffee with Rich, we will be joined by Allen Elishewitz of Elishewitz Custom Knives and Tactician Concepts.
Allen spent a good part of his childhood living in third world countries around Southeast Asia. During that time he came to appreciate the way people there lived with minimal infrastructure. This helped shape some of his personality and how he approaches life and training. Allen has always trained in some type of combative arts since he was 10 years old. Over several decades he has had the pleasure of studying and training with some of the best instructors in their fields. This interest is what guided him into my current occupation. Allen is a professional knifemaker who specializes in tactical and defensive blades. Allen is one of the first knifemakers to start the tactical folder movement. He operates Elishewitz Custom Knives and Tactician Concepts with his wife Valerie.
Allen has been interested in knives ever since he was very young. His martial arts trainings, along with his experiences as a Recon Marine, gave me the perfect background to design both defensive and utility knives.
During the time Allen spent at 4th Recon C Company, he was a Team Leader in charge of a Deep Recon Platoon. Allen trained in Artillery Call for Fire, Naval Call for Fire, SOTG, Amphibious Recon and many in-company trainings.
Allen has a Bachelor Degree in Criminal Justice and an Associate Degree in Fine Arts.
