To our fellow citizens:
We realize that the storm has left a large area of the country devastated and our hearts go out to everyone who is suffering from its effects. We were lucky in the Washington, DC region to have largely escaped the brunt of this storm’s incredible force, although we did experience a lot of wind damage and closures earlier this week. One of the results of this storm is the interruption in the shipping of packages throughout the Northeast as well as other parts of the country, since the systems are very interconnected. We are working with UPS and FedEx to catch up on our incoming as well as outgoing shipments. Everything should be caught up within a few days. We know that Americans all pull together in times of crisis and we all need to be understanding as the shipping companies get back on track. Thank you for your continued support. To find out how to help after the storm, please see the CNN page HERE.
The first folding knife models from Maxpedition are now available at the KnifeCenter and what a good design these blades are. The ergonomic FRN handle is available in khaki, olive drab, or the standard black and it comes with a non-movable black pocket clip. You’ve got the option to use the ambidextrous thumb studs or flipper to open the blade, both work equally well with modest finger pressure. The drop point blades are all 3-1/4″, black coated, and come with nice jimping on the pronounced thumb ramp for precise, controlled cutting. This is a knife you can count on not to fall apart when you need it and it can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

This is a very well designed, high quality new combat knife from Jesper Voxnaes and Boker. It’s constructed from one solid piece of N690BO stainless steel with a beautiful stonewashed finish. The handle is contoured canvas Micarta with holes drilled through it allowing for the knife to be easily attached to a stick for a homemade spear. The clip point blade is an excellent tactical design that can also be pressed into hunting tasks with ease. Part of what makes a good fixed blade knife is having a good sheath and that’s definitely the case for the Boker JTN. The black leather sheath is extremely well made, visually appealing, and durable. It’s got a pouch on the front for extra survival gear and has Velcro and button attachments on the belt loop so the sheath can be put on and removed without having to undo your belt. A very nice knife from Boker that’s built like a tank and available at www.knifecenter.com.

The latest addition to the Spyderco line is the folding Puukko design by Pekka Tuominen, the Nilakka, and what a cool knife this is. Based off the successful Spydero FB28WDP Puukko and adapted for the folding knife enthusiast, the Nilakka is unlike any other knife in your collection. The squared off G10 handle is robust, comfortable in the hand and will not rip up your pockets. The knife buries deeply, opens smoothly and locks up tightly – as with all Spydercos. What makes the Nilakka unique is the zero grind it incorporates all the way down the blade to the cutting edge. There is not a separate bevel on the edge, which makes resharpening the knife more difficult but this kind of grind is unparalleled in slicing performance. You can find this unique folding knife at www.knifecenter.com.
