Columbia River Klecker NIRK
Columbia River Knife and tool company comes up with some great designs. This one, the NIRK, is one of the most clever we have seen. Look closely at the handle…it’s a single piece of sheet metal cut and bent so that the handle and the back spring are all from the same piece. And it works very well! It allows them to produce these at an incredible price and we are proud to sell them.

Columbia River Ken Onion Ripple Series of Folding Knives
Columbia River Knife and Tool introduces the Ken Onion Ripple series of folding pocketknives.
Columbia River Ripple Series is designed by Ken Onion. This is the first production knife we have seen designed by Ken Onion that is not made by Kershaw. It is also, and more significantly, the first production knife series utilizing the amazing IKBS system of opening – these are not assisted openers. This system utilizes ball bearings in the pivot area and allows for super smooth and fast opening. These knives are AMAZING! You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
This is our favorite series since the Leek from Kershaw- also designed by Ken.

Columbia River Cicada™ LED, Knife, Scissors with Plastic Sheath
Columbia River Knife and Tool has released a really clever new tool that is easy to carry. The Cicada has some great features. The hard, plastic sheath has a clip that can be used on a belt. It says it can be used as a money clip, but I really don’t see that happening easily. You need to bunch the bills up and slide them under the clip because there is a lip that sort of locks the end of the clip in a groove. Other than that, this is a great tool You can see them at: www.knifecenter.com.

Columbia River Kommer I.F.B. Carbon Steel Blade
Columbia River Knife and Tool has a great new Combat Fixed Blade. The IFB stands for “Integral Fixed Blade.” It feels like a single piece of steel – handle and blade. Their method of manufacture is outlined below and, as I understand it, is a sort of molding process. The result is a remarkable knife. It has a heavy-ish feel with a great hand orientation on the handle. Columbia River Knife and tool has gotten the hardness is pretty good at about 61. It is carbon steel, so the coating will help preserve the piece. The sheath seems adequate- covering the blade with the widened start of the handle snapping it pretty securely. See more about the sheath and knife below. You can get them at www.knifecenter.com

Columbia River Knife and Tool Graham Folding Razel
The Razels are legendary. The Grahams of Tennessee have been making the custom versions for years and they are much in demand. These imported models from Columbia River Knife and Tool are really well made and very reasonably priced- this one is $38.95! The end is flat and sharpened but has a more obtuse angle and so can be used as a scraper. The handle is a very comfortable shaped Micarta. The action is fast and the lockup secure. There is a safety on top to help assure the blade stays open. This is a workhorse folding knife. We have them at: www.knifecenter.com
