A good flashlight is an invaluable tool, especially when you happen to have it with you at all times. With some of these new NITECORE designs, you’d be in the minority if you didn’t carry it with you everywhere you went. NITECORE is among the cutting edge brands when it comes to compact and tactical flashlights putting out crazy high lumens. Some would even argue they are the industry leader in that category and for good reason. The new Tiny Monster lights are the most compact designs on the market that have a maximum output over 2000 lumens. The Multi-Task series of lights are awesome, general/tactical use lights with all the features you need and are also available as Hybrid models that come with a USB charging cable and rechargeable batteries from the manufacturer. The Explorer and SENS series are EDC lights meant to be with you wherever you go and the Precise P25 model is among the best all-round lights on the market. You really can’t beat a good flashlight, check out the entire line of NITECORE products at www.knifecenter.com.

The Barrage was Benchmade’s first ever AXIS lock model to incorporate an assisted opening mechanism and it’s continued to be a very popular design, even four years later. The model 581 was introduced in 2011 with the same specifications as the model 580 but with some nice material upgrades. The FRN handle was changed to G10 with stainless steel bolsters and the blade steel was upgraded to M390 super steel, providing a much better using steel while losing little of the stainless qualities 154CM steel provides. Now, in 2013 you can get the Mini Barrage with the same upgrades as the model 581 – the new 586. They’ve got 2.91″ drop point blades with either a nice stonewashed finish or the black BK2 coating. You can’t go wrong with any Benchmade design but if assisted openers are your thing, then the new model 586 is a superior EDC choice. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

What else need be said about Jens Anso designs that you can’t see by looking at the functional similarities. They’re comfortable, easy to manipulate, fluid, and the blades are always placed at the proper angle for cutting. The new 110633 Solo model is no different an is now available at an amazing price for what you get. The large 3-3/4″ blade is an excellent tactical shape and locks up solidly even with it’s relatively thin liner lock. It would be nice to see Boker provide a thicker lockbar on subsequent generations but for $141.95, I’m not complaining. The handle is 4-7/8″ and made from machined, anodized aluminum with a nice dimpling pattern that provides added texturing. The pocket clip, though rather small, clips in nicely, is low profile, and can be switched for tip up or tip down carry. It’s a beautiful knife to fondle and this first batch is individually numbered so it’s a great knife for the collection as well. You can find it at www.knifecenter.com.

The Mantis Vuja De is finally here at the KnifeCenter and what a cool knife this is! The butterfly karambit – many people thought it couldn’t be done but the genius behind Mantis and QTRM5TR Knives, Jared West, has pulled it off and executed it well. It features a very cool and effective button that locks the knife in both the open and closed positions. It’s not really designed for practicing your flipping tricks as the lock automatically engages when the knife becomes completely open. It could flip smoother, like a Benchmade 51 or 62, and it could be a little sharper like an Emerson Karambit but it really is nothing like those other knives. It’s in a class all its own with a 2″ M-VX steel hawkbill blade and 7″ overall profile including the rear finger hole so you’ll never have the problem of guessing which one the safety handle is again. Karambits are tactical, defense specific tools and the Vuja De by Mantis Knives is no different, plus it has the cool added feature of being a Bali-Song flipper. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

I am very excited to announce the partnering of the Hawke Knife Brand with Knife Center of the Internet! They carry the best products and it is an honor to be counted as one of their newest brands. The Knife Center demands the highest standards if one wants to be considered worthy of their outstanding reputation and I’ll tell you; my new Mykel Hawke Brand delivers!
All Mykel Hawke brand designs originate with my experience of 30 years of Military & Special Forces Combat experience from the lowest enlisted rank, to the commanding officer rank and my 20+ years of teaching and doing extreme survival all over the world. I bring a lot of education with my Master’s degree, a lot of smarts with my 7 languages and a lot of martial art with my multiple black belt degrees.
All this means is that a lot of hard earned experience and real dirt-time skills go into every Hawke design. We have a great many new products coming that are sure to change the industry standards for many years to come.
A sincere thanks to Knife Center and a special thanks to you who live by the blade!
My best to y’all
