Introducing Fox 40 Whistles, Exotac Fire Starters

Introducing Fox 40 Whistles, Exotac Fire Starters

We’re proud to welcome two new brands to Knifecenter.com-Fox 40, a top name in safety and sports whistles; and Exotac, manufacturer of fantastic firestarters and survival gear. Let’s meet the new family!

Fox 40 Whistles are designed for everything from marine safety and outdoor survival to sports refereeing. They’re engineered for reliability, ease-of-use, and most importantly, to be heard! Fox 40 whistles can generate up to 115 dB, and can be heard for miles above ambient noise such as crashing waves . Fox 40 whistles use pealess technology to improve performance, eliminate “jamming”, and ensure cleanliness (cork “peas” can harbor moisture and bacteria). Product of Canada.

Exotac fire starters and match cases are made for demanding survivalists and campers everywhere! These guys are dedicated to quality, and use small production runs to allow for constant improvement. Whether it’s their tungsten carbide fire starters or their match cases, they’ll be there for you to count on when you absolutely need to start a fire.

These new brands make exciting additions to the Knifecenter family-and oh yeah, great gifts too! Take a look at www.knifecenter.com!

Kershaw Compound-Combo Edge

Kershaw Compound-Combo Edge (KS1940ST)

Kershaw Knives, manufacturers of the super plain-edged Compound folding knife, have added a new combo edge version. Featuring Kershaw’s buttery-smooth, precise SpeedSafe® assisted opening mechanism (accessed by a built-in flipper), this knife opens with a very solid “click”, and is secured by a locking liner.

This Kershaw Compound sports a 3.5″ partially-serrated, heat-treated 8CR13MoV steel blade. Offering a removable clip for tip-up or tip-down carry, the Compound utilizes glass-reinforced nylon handles. The result is a very solid-feeling knife, yet it weighs just 3.8 oz.-and it costs just $25.95! Take a look at the combo edge Compound-and its plain-edged brother-at www.knifecenter.com!

Introducing SCAR Brand Blades

Introducing SCAR Blades

Every once in a while at the Knifecenter, we are lucky enough to add a new brand to our family. SCAR Blades, a company started by two brothers and based in Idaho Falls, Idaho, produces custom hand-built blades for the outdoors, law enforcement, and military communities.

Most SCAR knives are made from 1095 high-carbon steel, prized worldwide for its sharpness  and edge retention. Furthermore, they are heat treated only along the sharpened edge, allowing the “softer” steel of the spine to absorb impacts and reduce fatigue. Most SCAR blades offer full-tang construction and phenolic handles, and feature Kydex sheaths custom-fitted to each knife. Backed by a lifetime warranty, these are rugged knives, designed for the toughest tasks around. Made in the USA. Check out the new additions at www.knifecenter.com!
