Columbia River Ed Van Hoy Biotac Knife Harness

The Biotac knife harness, designed by Ed Van Hoy and produced by Columbia River, will change the way you carry your fixed blade knives. Particularly great for neck knives, the Biotac allows you to position your knife comfortably in six basic inverted positions, and it is fully adjustable so that you can position it the way you like. The Biotac requires a positive locking sheath, with a snap or detent to hold the knife securely, because of the inverted carry. It works great for both open and concealed carry.

Columbia River’s Tribute to the Godfather of the Guild

Columbia River Centofante Tribute Knife
Columbia River’s Tribute to the Godfather of the Guild

Frank Centofante started making pocket knives in 1970. A year later he became a member of the Knifemaker’s Guild, and has since served on the board of directors for 20 years, including 8 years as the President of the Knifemaker’s Guild. His prowess at knifemaking has resulted in his being called the Godfather of the Knifemakers Guild. Unfortunately, Frank Centofante passed away in September of 2009. Before he passed, however, he designed one last collaborative effort with Columbia River. In honor of his memory, Columbia River chose to call his final collaborative knife the Centofante Tribute.

The Centofante Tribute comes in two different models. The Tribute has a 3.125″ blade, while the Tribute 2 has a 2.875″ blade. The design is simplicity and elegance. The slender spear point blade is opened with a classic nail nick, and is complemented by a red wood patterned Micarta handle. The lockback locking mechanism allows the handle of the knife the be extremely thin, just a little bit over a quarter of an inch at its thickest. The result is a thin, light blade that would go well with a suit, but is also capable of anything you might need your every day carry knife for. All of this for under $30.00.

Ken Onion’s Eros Gentleman’s Folding Knives

Ken Onion is famous for the assisted opening knives he developed for Kershaw over a ten year period. Now that he has moved on from Kershaw to Columbia River, he also seems to have moved on from assisted openers. Not to worry, fans of fast opening knives, his new CRKT Eros folder opens just as fast-if not quicker. The secret to Ken’s new speedy folders is the bearings that the blade floats on-the official name is IKBS-that allow it to open like its on roller skates! CRKT is so proud of these knives that they are serial numbering them.
