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.
The Benchmade 761 Titanium Framelock features a titanium handle and pocket clip with a sandblasted and oiled finish. The premium M390 steel, modified utility drop point blade rides on ball bearings for super smooth action while providing tight lockup. It’s a design that really embodies simplistic beauty, much like a Chris Reeve Sebenza. The pocket clip has been attached for tip-down, right-handed carry and cannot be moved. There is a single thumbstud on the 761 and jimping on the handle for a secure hold in both forward and reverse grips. You can find this beautiful knife at www.knifecenter.com.
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
