As always, the SHOT Show – that is the Shooting Hunting Outdoors Trade show, in Las Vegas was a great get together of industry and retail players and this year didn’t disappoint. Here are the trends we have seen most clearly. Upgraded steel is really the major theme. Cold Steel is upgrading their whole line and that is the major reason at we have so many of the older ones at such great prices so please don’t delay in getting any models you want at the ridiculously low prices they are at. Quartermaster has a smaller Roper model that is lighter and smaller and really a usable version of a great knife. It has lots of great new features. Then they have some new models titled after the Back to the Future movies. More details later.
Folders with replaceable blades were all over either using the same standard staple blades that Havelon uses or a proprietary one like Outdoor Edge. Cast hatchets were popular from many vendors including SOG Gerber and others. Kershaw has some really extraordinary models all made in the USA. they are priced right too and we will eagerly await their arrival. ZT models coming out are really smaller than they have been and really will fill the niche for people who want a carry knife for their pants pocket. Benchmade is solidifying their hunting products with more fixed blades as well as a new lock system. Look for all the new items at the KnifeCenter first! You can preorder from us and be the first to get them yourselves.
Great Gear from KnifeCenter!
We have some very nice shirts and hats for you with the unique Knifecenter logo. The hats are made by Adams and the nicest ones we could find. They’re heavy, have great natural type colors and the embroidery came out perfect. The shirts are by American Apparel and many people feel these are also about the best you can get. They have a thin feel and are very smooth and finely made. They’re US made and still reasonably priced. We get different designs through the years, so grab one of these if it suites you. They make a great gift!
Ok, we have a heck of a lot of specials going on at the same time. It can get confusing. Which ones are really cheap and which ones are just everyday sale items. I’m here to give you the inside scoop. First, let me point out that the reason for these lists is that we have so many items – the list is really enormous and so many of them are really great deals. We just want to help everyone get to what they are looking for and it’s not always easy. For instance: We just posted the “80 Items up to 80% Off- greatest sale ever” promotion. That’s a pretty big claim. Well, these items are hand picked as good items that we just happen to have too many on the shelf. We are willing to make just a bit on them to lighten up our inventory level for the end of the year. We are all in a buying mode right now and, as I say repeatedly, you have to make hay while the sun shines.
Then we have the flat rate shipping through today. Well, this is just a great deal.
We are running the Medford Sale that gives you some really solidly built knives at a reasonable price. Medford likes to price their product way Continue Reading
Monday Massive Medford Markdown
Medford Sale! This doesn’t often happen, but we want to offer our customer some of the true quality American made products at reasonable prices. Plus, we liked the alliterative possibilities of this sale. When these are gone, they will not likely return. It is the Holiday Season, so grab the bargains!
Cyber Monday Killer Deals
We have some great Cyber Monday deals- These great deals will stay on the site until they sell down so please check them out.
Our new knifeREWARDS program is being well received by our customers. Remember our double points part of it! This really gives you an amazing amount of money back towards future purchases and is well worth considering.
The whole idea is that we wanted to come up with a way to give back to our customers who have stayed with us loyally through the years and also, of course, incentivize everyone to buy more. We think this system is doing it all. We keep all your orders grouped with your email and you can check any time on the point level and what you can get for redeeming them. We offer double points on a lot of items so you get even a better deal. Then we have a VIP system so you will get a free gift at the end of the year for all the items you bought that year. Since we’re starting late in 2014, we will total the rest of this year’s with next year’s purchases. If you spend enough through the year you can get a free Chris Reeve Sebenza! There is also a Zero Tolerance available and a Swiss Army Super Tinker Knife. We’re excited by this new system and we hope you will be as well. See it all HERE!
We wish all of the American public a happy Thanksgiving and everyone a great holiday season!
The KnifeCenter will be sending out some really great email deals with thousands of discounted products. Sign up now, if you haven’t already. We’ll be closed on Thanksgiving day so that our employees can enjoy the day with their families, but the emails will go out and you can order from your computer as much as you like- we encourage it!
We love our industry, business, customers and products. This time of year is really busy, but we will all work as hard as it takes to get your packages to you safely and on time. We will ship packages out as you request through the week of Christmas and we’ll be back at work the day after Christmas. Keep checking in with us for new specials and bargains for you and your family and friends and please, stay safe this season and remember: life is short and you can’t have too many knives!
Great new designs just in from Victorinox
The Swiss Army Classic is, well, a classic! It’s a simple knife made in Switzerland that can be carried on a key ring or in a purse or suite pocket with enough tools to get most jobs done. Victorinox has been releasing the Classic with some great designs every year and this makes it possible to give one of these great tools as a really nice gift. The price tag is still pretty low at $16.95 and these are just in time for Christmas!
The KnifeCenter supports several charities and we invite you to donate as well- to the best of your ability and inclination. You can see our philanthropy page with the various charities we support HERE. $2000 is being sent to the Wounded Warrior Project from the KnifeCenter of the Internet for the percentage of sales promotion we ran on Memorial Day weekend plus some additional to express our gratitude to our service people.
