Klarus MiX6 Ti Keychain Light

Klarus MiX6 Ti Keychain Light

When the power goes out, you’ll want a great flashlight at the ready. Your keychain is the perfect place for a flashlight, but most are so dim that they are essentially useless, or they’re too big, bulky, and heavy. The other issue with the average keychain light is that they tend to use some tiny, impossible to replace battery. When that light dies, you’re better off throwing it away and picking up the Klarus MiX6 Ti.

The MiX6 Ti solves all of standard keychain light issues. At 12 g (.43 oz), it weighs just a little more than 2 standard house keys, and with its slim, titanium construction, you’ll hardly notice its addition to your key ring. That is until you turn it on. The Klarus blasts out light with 4 modes that cover all of your lighting needs, spanning from 3 lumens to an impressive 85! The modes are changed by twisting the flashlight head left and right and it glides easily enough that it can be done with one hand. If you’re wondering how long the light lasts, you’ll get 70 minutes from the full 85 lumens, 5.7 hours from the medium 26 lumens, and almost 3 days at the low 3 lumens setting. All this from a single, easy to find, AAA battery. Check out this perfect keychain light at www.knifecenter.com.

Cold Steel Blowguns, Fun For Everyone

Cold Steel Blowgun Fun

There are few outdoor activities you can practice within the comfort of your own home or office. When we discovered the satisfaction of hitting a 1′ target across the office with a small dart shot from a blowgun, it changed the office atmosphere altogether. Stress levels have dropped significantly, and employees treat each other with greater respect now. The blowguns from Cold Steel are surprisingly accurate, even with little training.

The blow guns are available in 4 or 5 foot lengths, with an optional 2 foot extension. We have found that additional length adds to the range and accuracy. A quiver attached to the blowgun keeps track of a dozen darts. There are several variations of darts for those who go beyond target practice. Happy shooting from www.knifecenter.com!

Ontario Strike Fighter Tactical Fixed Blades

Ontario Strike Fighter Fixed Blades

The new Strike Fighter knives from Ontario are well designed, stout back-up tools meant for any military or law enforcement personnel. The handle shape and texturing are borrowed from the successful XM-1 Military folders and made from removable black Micarta slabs. Each knife comes with an excellent plastic molded friction fit sheath that secures the knife tightly without rattling and has an attached Tek-Lok from the factory. There are two sizes of the fixed Strike Fighters available – the SG-3 with a three inch blade and the SG-2 with a stubby two inch blade. It beats me why anyone would need such a little fixed blade, when the SG-3 model can do everything it’s smaller brother can plus much more. Overall, these are very comfortable and durable new American made designs that will not fail you when you need them. Check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

Boker Plus Classic Bushcraft Design

Boker Plus Classic Bushcraft Design

What makes a good Buchcraft design is an easily resharpened blade, comfortable handle, and of course a good sheath. The new Boker Plus Classic Bushcraft knife gets all of these things right. The 4″ 440C blade may not be the best looking I’ve ever seen but it will cut well and resharpen quite easily. The black Micarta handle scales have a huge lanyard hole for 550 cord and are nicely rounded¬†for a comfortable grip. The leather sheath is a simplistic drop-in design but it secures the knife very well so you’ll have no fear of losing it. The Classic Bushcraft knife comes from Boker Plus in very nice gift packaging complete with a fire steel and striker, which must be carried separate from the sheath. Check it out this affordable new design at www.knifecenter.com.

Superstorm Sandy Situation

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.

Spyderco Ulize – the German Police Model

Spyderco Ulize - the German Police Model

Slim, sleek, long, and natural are the first things that come to mind when handling the new Spyderco Ulize. Very similar in looks, size, and shape to one of the original Spyderco models, the C07 Police, this Ulrich Hennicke design is more than fit for duty. The Ulize was specifically designed for use by the German police as a functional utility tool as well as devastating cutter with its 4.12″ re-curved VG-10 blade. The handle melds into the hand extremely well and puts the blade in an excellent cutting position in multiple grips. Proceeds of this knife will benefit officers killed in the line of action and the four-position clip, backlock, and trademark round-hole make this pocket knife completely ambidextrous and great for any user.
