Kershaw RJ Series of Assisted Openers
Kershaw RJ Series of Assisted Openers
Amazing series of Speedsafe assisted openers designed by the great custom knifemaker RJ Martin. These work great and have a nicely streamlined handle. The blade shape is remarkable because it’s a tanto style but still has some belly on it which makes it more useful. You can see the series at www.knifecenter.com

Kershaw Tremor Assisted Very Cool Pocketknife!
Kershaw Knives releases another winning folding pocketknife. The Tremor you just felt was the sound of Kershaw’s competitors running back to the drawing board. Kershaw has been the leader in the development and evolution of assisted opening knives since the beginning. We have not seen much new from them in the last couple years in this category, but they have come roaring back with the Tremor. This large G10 linerlock with a blade kicker is made in China under the supervision of Kershaw’s parent company and features the original Ken Onion SpeedSafe technology.

Benchmade Aphid Folding Knives

Benchmade Aphid Folding Assisted Opening Pocketknives
Benchmade Aphid Folding Knives
We remember the Aphid series and we liked them a lot. These new ones are nicer, though, with a great assisted opening mechanism. Not sure why Benchmade picked the name Aphid for this knife—especially after reading about Aphids on Wikipedia. Ladybugs are a natural predator of Aphids… don’t anyone tell Spyderco. All of that silliness aside, this is a very cool little assisted opening gentleman’s tactical. We like the style, the size, the opening action, and the price. We’re just not so sure about the name…

This Barrage model has an upgraded handle, assisted opening operation and the super hard steel blade. What’s not to like?

Introducing the Columbia River Delegate

Columbia River Delegate Pocketknife
Introducing the Columbia River Delegate

Usually, assisted opening knives go for the cool tactical look. They are designed to snap open and scare away any potential attackers. But the same design also scares the average civilian. The Delegate from Columbia River is an assisted knife that won’t scare the neighbors, or the maître d’ at that nice French restaurant you like to go to. The sleek and simple design when closed is attractive, and the drop point blade is utilitarian and non-threatening. The handles feature either cocobolo wood scales for the black blade model, or white bone scales for the satin blade model, which really add to the classy quality that this knife has going for it.

However, the Delegate isn’t just about looks. Despite its non-threatening appearance, the blade is razor sharp, and the assisted open action snaps the blade open with authority.

New Kershaw Rake Assisted Opening Pocket Knife

Kershaw comes up with so many great innovations that quickly become the industry standard. Their new composite blades may just be the next big thing. The Kershaw Rake features high-performance Sandvik 14C28N steel on the spine, and the wear-resistant D2 steel on the cutting edge. The wide blade and deep belly give this knife a longer usable edge than other knives of similar lengths, increasing the slicing capabilities of the knife. Despite the size of the blade, the assisted action snaps the knife open quickly and firmly. Best of all, it is made in the USA.
