New SOG Bladelight Camp

SOG BLT21-K Blade Light Camp

The Bladelight Camp is a very cool fixed blade by SOG.  One might think that a “blade light” sounds kinda gimmicky, and it does, but the new SOG Bladelite actually “works”.  I personally don’t think the blade itself (although it is adequate)  is the best part of the overall offering.  What makes the Bladelight is the sheath and the surprisingly powerful light.  Although listed at ~ 37 Lumens, the light is emitted from 6  small bulbs making for a very powerful and  focused beam.   The light does not just work unsheathed, but with the sheath on as well – this is made possible by the six cutouts on the sheath and the Bladelight is equally bright with the sheath on or off.  The sheath also features an indentation enabling the knife to make small wire/line cuts even when sheathed.  Also there is a built-in sharpener on the sheath which is kinda handy.  Now,  more on the knife itself – it has a pretty good feel and the non-slip rubber handle makes it moderately grippy….and if you do drop it and it happens to break – it’s got a lifetime warranty so SOG will send ya a new one.  The steel is 8Cr13MoV which is a good “value steel” with a decent balance of edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.  Here at KnifeCenter, you can get this one with the satin blade and white light or with a black blade and red LED – KnifeCenter also offers a fillet knife version.

New Buck Rush and Mini SpitFire

New Buck Blog

 

Buck’s latest 2014 offerings include a couple of really great foldersthe Mini SpitFire and the Rush.  Knifecenter offers these two sure-to-be winners in several colors so take your pick!

The Mini-SpitFire is the not-so baby -brother to the classic Buck SpitFire.  This more compact version features a 2 3/4  inch 420C Steel blade (1/2 inch smaller than the full-size Spitfire) and light-weight anodized aluminum handles.  The blade is super sharp  and the thumb hole  allows for very easy one-hand opening (the thumb hole on the new minis are actually a bit wider than the full size SpitFire allowing for even easier opening).  The Mini SpitFire’s  lockback blade is also very secure and easy to engage.  These very affordable 100% USA made folders are available at KnifeCenter.com  - get’em while they last!

The Buck Rush is appropriately named  - if  you’re in a rush and need super-fast blade deployment, the Buck Rush is sure to fit the bill.  Its lightening-fast assist mechanism provides for one of the quickest and smoothest deployments I’ve seen.  I really like the added safety latch that sits directly below the blade flipper – this  should prevent any accidental openings while in your pocket.  The skeletonized aluminum handles, thin profile,secure belt clip, and ambidextrous thumb studs make this a very easy to carry pocketknife.  This small folder is also very light light at  just over 2oz.  As with the Mini Spitfire, the Rush is completely USA made  - these are sure to sell thru fast so grab one HERE at KnifeCenter.
