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.
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
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!
Very rarely do we get knives in the door that we have to double, then triple check the price to make sure we got it right. That’s just the case with the new Boker Plus Colubris, an all-around fixed blade designed by DJ Urbanovsky. When you get this knife in your hand, it’s a lot like the Ontario RAT folders, you just can’t believe what you’re getting for the price. True, the blade is made from 440C steel but the way Boker heat treats and finishes these blades, you end up with a great user steel that will hold an adequate edge. Other than the knock on the steel, we wouldn’t change a single thing about the knife. The G10 handle is ergonomically contoured for a comfortable grip in multiple positions and the aesthetic dimpling/texturing provides good purchase. The modified Wharncliff blade is angled for deep, effective slicing and has enough belly for most of your utility work. I strongly feel a fixed blade knife is only as good as it’s sheath, and the friction fit Kydex sheath you get with the Colubris is right on point. It perfectly fits the knife with little to no rattling sound, and comes with a multi-position Boker belt clip, which functions exactly the same as a Spyderco G-Clip.

Pull-through sharpeners are by far the easiest to use of any sharpener type. All you need to do is set it up and pull your blade through for fast, simple, and effective results. The Warthog Sharpeners V-Sharp Classic II is a new, adjustable angle design with multiple diamond sharpening rods you can use with all your different knives. The Curve is a compact, easy to use, highly portable model that always provides the right amount of pressure to the edge when you pull it through. What sets these apart from every other pull-through sharpener on the market is that these include a blade guide for precisely lining up the edge with the sharpening rods. Warthog Sharpeners are designed to be used by anyone to quickly achieve a functional edge, no matter your sharpening experience. You can find these excellent new sharpening products at www.knifecenter.com.

Finnish knives, commonly bunched all together as Puukko designs, are built solely with the user in mind. The knives are attractive, comfortable, sturdy, and best of all, sharp! EnZO designs, and most Puukkos for that matter, generally feature a Scandi grind, which is like a flat ground blade without the secondary bevel. The edge of the blade generally goes up about half way up the width of the blade, or higher, making for a sharper edge that is also easier to resharpen. EnZO knives are perfect for bushcrafting as well as everyday carry since the handles are perfectly sculpted to provide the best ergonomics possible for every hand size. EnZO knives are some of the highest quality designs we have in the Puukko category and best of all, they won’t break the bank. Check out these awesome new knives from Finland at www.knifecenter.com.

The tides of the fixed blade knife are a-changing and Hardcore Hardware Australia is riding that wave and doing it very well. These days people are flocking to the larger, bulkier knives that have a multitude of uses beyond cutting. They want to be able to chop, pry, split, saw, dig, hammer, break, etc. from a single tool that they always have at their side. Much like Mercworx, Robson RPW, and Medford Knives, these are meant for battlefield use and hard use at that. All blades and tactical axes are made from Teflon coated D2 tool steel and measure at least 6 mm thick. This gives you peace of mind that Hardcore Hardware knives can handle what needs to be done, even if not intended to do so. Fit and finish is right up there with Spartan Blades when it comes to fixed knives, they are just perfectly ground, honed, and assembled to give you a tool that will last years. Check out this newest bomb proof line of knives at www.knifecenter.com.

We’ve had Medford products for several weeks now and I haven’t gotten around to a Blog post- because they have been coming and going out in a fast and furious fashion. These combat knives and folding knives are amazing- they are strong, well made and well designed and not inexpensive- and the public loves them. We ordered them back in January and they finally arrived in July, and this is the typical lead time on these items. They are absolutely worth the wait. The whole operation is a reflection of the creators, Greg and Amy Medford in Phoenix, AZ. These two are dynamic, high spirited, fun and creative individuals with a real passion for the product and the business. They have an amazing process for each knife that includes fully hand grinding each blade and fitting each knife together to the utmost perfection. The fit and finish on these workhorse big, honkin’ knives is superb. The materials are great and the the packaging is super professional. We see a lot of products come through the Knifecenter, but the Medfords have really raised the bar in all these respects. Look for great things in the future with a quicker production cycle, but the knives will never be better than they are now. They may have automatic grinders in their production down the road, but now everything is ground by hand. You may regret not getting these early models.
From the Hubertus factory in Solingen come traditional yet uniquely different styles of German knives. The handcrafted knives are all geared towards hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, featuring rugged stag handles and blades of high quality German made stainless or carbon steel. Leather sheaths with secure belt loops are included with both the fixed and folding knives, protecting and securing the blade during outings. Hubertus is a family run business that has been making knives since 1930 in the old world style and we’ve brought over some models we think you’ll find as cool as we do. Check out all the new Hubertus Knives at www.knifecenter.com.
