Cold Steel 88CSAB 1917 Frontier Bowie

Cold Steel 88CSAB 1917 Frontier Bowie

The Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie may not be the prettiest piece in the collection but it will be one of the hardest working, that’s for sure. It’s a 1/4″ thick piece of nicely tempered 1055 carbon steel so you know it will stand up to any kind of use. The handle is beautiful rosewood and you’re prevented from sliding forward onto the 12-1/4″ blade by an over-sized “S” guard which can also be used as a place to rest your thumb during fine cutting tasks. The sheath is an excellent, quality design made of leather and it provides very adequate retention on the knife. This is a great value for such a ferocious cutter, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

Kershaw Knockout

Kershaw Knockout

The Kershaw USA made Knockout is a real winner. But then, I like fast opening flipper framelocks with wide blades and deep pocket carry clips that are made in the USA with great materials. Then the very thin profile and lightweight construction really just cinch the deal! That along with a reasonable price, of course. The olive green handle and black blade are also appealing to my taste. This knife really is a winner in my book. Kershaw has done well on this one, that’s for certain! See them at www.knifecenter.com

Randall designed Ontario assisted openers

Randall designed Ontario assisted openers

Lightning fast. That’s the best way to describe these Randall designed Ontario assisted openers. Just instantaneous opening. Touch that thumb stud and the deed is done- open. The design of this folding pocket knife is well established with the non assisted models, as a great every day carry by thousands of users. Designed by Jeff Randall of ESEE knives and manufactured in Taiwan, American knife fans have voted the non- assisted models as must-have tools by buying them throughout the last 5 years they have been available. We are certain these assisted models will be at least as desirable. There is also a safety on the handle that prevents the accidental opening. Here are some more goodies about these folders. They have a flat ground blade of good quality stainless steel, AUS8. Double thumb studs trigger this lightning fast opening. The G10 handles are great and offer a good grip. Handles are lined for strength. The liner lock is solid and access to it is easy. There is some jimping on the thumb ramp on top of the blade. There are extra holes to reposition the pocket clip so you have your choice of 4 positions. The pivot adjuster is an allen wrench fitting. This is a great knife destined to be a long term standard and you should absolutely check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

Benchmade 484 & 484S Nakamura

Superb balance and the awesomely fun AXIS lock – what else need we say about the new 484 Nakamuras from Benchmade. This is the 4th model in the series and even if you buy this knife strictly as a collectible piece, I feel like you might get your money’s worth because of how much you’re gonna play with it. The blade, like that of the 940 Osborne folder, has an excellent EDC/utility shape and it  flips in and out of the handle with the slightest wrist movement. This knife probably has the best jimping of any Benchmade knife – great angle at which it contacts the thumb and perfectly done for maximum purchase. Finger grooves are perfect for medium sized hands and it comes with a reversible split arrow pocket clip. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

Mantis MKF-815 Snaggletooth 3

The Snaggletooth series are very interesting folding pocket knives. In the realm of knife fighting, these are very effective weapons. The “bump” on the top of the blade is used in a variety of ways, generally the opponent’s body is utilized to open the main blade. These also have a “little finger” ring that is revealed with a button. This allows for other handling of this knife. It’s a great product and well made and reasonably priced, which is pretty typical of the Mantis products. The KnifeCenter offers a large selection of Mantis products and we ship then around the world.

Schrade SCH601Ti Tactical

Schrade SCH601Ti Tactical

The Schrade 601Ti is one of the best knives they manufacture, and it’s not just because of the materials. D2 tool steel and Titanium handle scales with a solid frame lock are not Schrade’s norm, but this knife is something special. It’s got a great feeling in the hand, really just locks itself in, just from the handle shape alone. The radian recurved blade is angled for serious effectiveness in pull cuts and will hold an edge extremely well. Schrade seems to have taken a page out of Emerson’s playbook and used a Phillips screw for the pivot, which makes it very easy to adjust away from you torx screw set. We at KnifeCenter are extremely excited about this knife, it provides an excellent value in terms of it’s price and doesn’t sacrifice anything in terms of design or function. You can find them at www.knifecenter.com
