Is it a tactical combat knife or a wilderness blade? That’s for you to decide. The Combat Kukri from KA-BAR is an extremely versatile knife built to handle the toughest tasks with ease. Fitted with an 8-1/2″ curved blade, the Kukri is well designed for chopping and hacking or for draw cuts and slashes. The Kraton handle provides a good, hand-filling grip and also helps to reduce shock absorbed by the hand. The pommel at the butt end adds to the knife’s capabilities, allowing for light hammering and smashing duties. For a knife measuring in at just over 13″, the best thing about the Combat Kukri is it’s weight. At 13.4 ounces, you get enough weight behind it to get the job done but the balance of the knife makes it feel much lighter and it’s very very maneuverable. Whether you’re a combat professional or weekend camper, try out a Combat Kukri for yourself and find out just how great this knife really is. Best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA and available at www.knifecenter.com.

First and foremost, this is a wicked awesome knife. There’s no question the Urban Tac Blondie is a head turner but most people want to know how good the quality control is on these knives coming from China. The answer; very good. Paired with the 4-3/8″ Tanto blade is a deeply textured G10 handle scale providing great grip. At just over 10″ from tip to hilt, the Blondie is designed for tactical combat but can also perform many utility tasks with ease. The framelock is somewhat thin for a knife this size but the lockup is incredibly tight with no play at all in any direction. The pocket clip, though not reversible, is mounted in a very convenient location for deep, unobtrusive carry. At this price point, you will have a hard time finding a knife with comparable features that can do half the things the Blondie can. See the entire family at www.knifecenter.com.

If you’ve ever wondered what the ideal tactical “go-to-war” combat knife may be, the Harsey family from Spartan Blades might just be the answer. The Hunter and Model II are classic, functional designs with some hi-tech, new-age features. The full-tang S35VN blades are 3/16″ thick which provides excellent torsional strength and are available in your choice of color. The canvas micarta scales are 3D machined and contoured to give you a firm grip while also offering superb ergonomics in the forward and reverse grips. Many people believe a fixed knife is only as good as it’s sheath and if that’s the case, this is where the Spartan Harsey blades excel. You have the choice between a MOLLE compatible Cordura sheath or one made from Kydex, both lock in the knife extra securely and provide an ample array of carry options. These knives are based loosely off “The Yarborough” fixed blade designed by William Harsey, which is the knife presented to each cadet of the US Army Special Forces Qualification Course upon their graduation. You can see these works of edged art at www.knifecenter.com.
