Gerber LHR Combat Knife Fixed Blade Reeve and Harsey Design
Gerber Knives has produced one of the most significant new knives we have seen in quite some time- and that’s saying something! This LHR was designed by both Chris Reeve and Bill Harsey and they are two of the finest designers in the world today. The construction is all done in the USA. The knife has a massive blade and a comfortable handle. The sheath is specially engineered to be able to be accessed by the wearer of the knife and not an opponent that he may be in close wquarters fighting with. It’s a unique and top quality system and the price is amazing.

Chris Reeve Knives Mk IV 28 Year Commemorative Combat Knife
Chris Reeve one piece series of fixed blades are legendary.
The “One Piece” series from Chris Reeve has been the mainstay of their line for almost 30 years. Now the gentleman who has provided Chris his blades has decided to retire, and Chris has decided to retire the series–rather than find a new source for the blades. We will continue to have inventory in the “One Piece” series for several months. The exciting thing is the new 28 year commemorative of the Mark IV–the original “One Piece”. Only 250 of these are going to be available, so don’t dawdle!

Chris Reeve Sebenzas are legendary. Many consider them to be the finest “mid-tech” folding knives made. “Mid-tech” refers to products that are no mass produced but are still produced at a higher rate than standard production knives. There is a lot of hand work and care in each piece. These models that just came in were hand picked by us at this year’s Blade Show. Each is a one of a kind creation. They are remarkable folders. Lots of Damascus blades and great anodized images on the handles. You can see them all at: www.knifecenter.com

Chris Reeve Mnandi Damascus Blade Mammoth Ivory Handle
This is a really beautiful knife! Every year at a trade show, we order some of the really elegant knives that Chris Reeve shows. We snagged a Mnandi that is as gorgeous as any knife we have seen. This fossilized mammoth ivory has an incredible “earthy” coloring with lots going on in the pattern. Then, Chris put a blue sapphire in the pivot pin area surrounded by some amazing metal work. The blade is Devon Thomas Ladder Pattern Damascus. This folder really has it all! Plus, Chris warranties his work forever. A truly one-of-a-kind item. It could be yours!

Chris Reeve Large Sebenzas with Devon Thomas Stainless Ladder pattern Damascus
Chris Reeve Sebenzas have been call the finest “mid-tech” folders ever made. “Mid-tech” refers to knives that are not quite custom because more than one person has a hand in making them and they are not really production knives because there is not a massive assembly line process involved. If you combine that with the incomparable Devon Thomas stainless Damascus steel that is in these blades as well as the great, unique handle designs, you have a collectible that will hold its value forever! Of course, Chris Reeve stands behind his products always and will always recondition one of his knives if you send it in to him.
A few words about the Damascus in these folders: Devon Thomas is recognized as, perhaps, the finest Damascus maker in the world. Most Damascus is made from 2 types of carbon steel, but Chris decided to put super premium stainless Damascus on these. The pattern is swirled tightly to give a ladder pattern and the swirls are so tight that the blade has a chatoyance or play of light like a tigers eye stone.

Chris Reeve Knives Sebenza 21
Chris Reeve Sebenzas are famous around the world for their quality and design. It has been a number of years since Chris redesigned this great folder which is carried by many other knifemakers as well as people who have an appreciation for fine tools. This is a great redesign in that it keeps all the great feature of both his “classic” version and standard.

Chris Reeve Damascus Sebenzas
The Sebenza is a classic folder that many people, including some knifemakers, prefer to carry. Although all are of top quality with no sacrifice to materials or manufacturing quality, Chris Reeve produces some extraordinary models. We got in 2 small Sebenzas with unusual damascus blades. The damascus pattern is very tight with a herring bone type of zig zag. The chatoyance effect (play of light) is really remarkable. They are each, of course, one of a kind creations. Here are the specs on one of them: Full Story
