Checking out the new carbon fiber handle on this Zero Tolerance 0770 model, you really get an appreciation for the simple aesthetic beauty of the knife. This strong, light weight design is just beautiful and is ergonomically comfortable in almost any hand. It opens lightning fast thanks to the SpeedSafe assist mechanism and the Elmax steel blade is among the best on the market. This is a must see knife you can find at www.knifecenter.com.
We went to the BLADE Show a couple weekends ago and picked up some amazing one-of-a-kind pieces. We were able to forge relationships with a number of new custom and mid-tech designers with some of the best products and reputations in the industry. From Mikkel Willumsen, David Curtiss, and Butch Ball, to Tim Britton, Anthony Griffin, and Duane Dwyer of Strider Knives, we’ve got some special pieces in here now and hopefully more to come. Most of these are one-off pieces but if you would like a specific model in a special configuration, please contact us via customer service support and we will get into contact with you to hash out the details. We’re very excited to bring these custom pieces to you, hope you are as well. Stay sharp! www.knifecenter.com

The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4, might just be the most balanced knife that DPx offers. It’s discrete enough to keep a low profile, but it’s large enough to handle jobs that would compromise most four-inch knives. The 3.94″ blade is high-performance, German-made Lohmann Niolox stainless steel and is cryo-hardened to a Rockwell Hardness near 60. Lohmann Niolox steel is prized for its ability to hold up to abuse and to retain a cutting edge and this knife has proven that. It’s held a durable cutting edge through repeated hard use on a variety of wood, bamboo, cardboard, and other mediums. It’s survived neglectful treatment, tons of batoning, and is thick enough to give you reassurance at the tip when drilling holes. Niolox combines the best qualities of stainless and high-carbon steels to provide you with a superior hard use tool. There is a storage compartment hidden within the G10 handle designed for small items like fishing line, hooks or water-purification tablets. The MOLLE compatible nylon sheath is durable, compact, and features a quality Velcro pouch the perfect size for a fire starter and small sharpener. The HEFT 4 was designed by Tommaso Rumici with input from Robert Young Pelton and is manufactured by LionSteel of Maniago, Northern Italy. See it at www.knifecenter.com.
