New Svord Hog Beater and EDC Fixed Blade

New Svord Hog Beater and EDC Fixed Blade

You may think this picture of these new Svord items is a joke but by no means does it even do justice to the shear vastness of the Hog Beater and the compact size of the EDC fixed blade, an excellent alternative to the Izula. The Hog Beater is a hunting dagger with a whopping 11-1/4″ double edge blade, convex sharpened as all Svord knives are. The hardwood handle and black leather belt sheath make for a very good looking package on this devastating hunting design. The EDC fixed blade is 6-1/8″ overall with a 3″ blade and orange cord wrapped handle. The package gets a nice style upgrade with the brown leather sheath which makes the design feel like it’s double the price and belongs at your side at all times. The only drawback to the knife design is that the finger cutout is a little shallow so your index finger is at risk of running onto the blade while stabbing. All Svord knives are made from high quality Swedish carbon steel and convex ground for a sharp, durable edge for all cutting tasks. You can see the new Svord designs at www.knifecenter.com.

New HTM M390 Torpedo Gunhammers are Here!

New HTM M390 Bowie Gunhammers are Here!

After the overwhelming success of our first run of Exclusive M390 Gunhammers, the KnifeCenter is extremely excited to see the new batch of these awesome tactical knives come in with the Torpedo style blade shapes. Available in either serrated or honed, spring-assisted or manual opening, you now have the choice between a tactical black DLC coated blade or an attractive Stonewashed finish. If you choose to go with a manual opening knife but are not familiar with the Maxx Glide Pivot System these knives utilize, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. This ball bearing design is exclusive to knives by Darrel Ralph and it really does close the speed gap between assisted and manual knives. With little to no wrist action, the blade flies open using the thumb studs or flipper mechanism and locks up solidly with the overly-thick titanium lockbar. M390 Steel from Bohler is an excellent performance steel balancing corrosion resistance and extremely high hardness (62HRC) which  provides superb wear resistance during hard use cutting.

Spyderco Brad Southard Flipper

Spyderco Southard Flipper combat and every day carry pocketknife
Spyderco Brad Southard Flipper

Spyderco Knives creates a great new knife that works as an every day carry for everybody as well as a special tool for people who need a great knife in their every day work. This knife has a lot of “bells and whistles.” It’s lightweight, has a slim profile, opens easily and locks solidly. This is a first for Spyderco. It probably won’t be the last flipper opening knife that Spyderco Knives offers. The Southard designed blade is a long belly – that’s it and this makes for a really useful tool. The top of the blade has jimping near the handle which is great for control and then another ramp further out for when you are choked up on the knife for a more controlled and precise cutting. This pocketknife has a framelock system with a titanium side to the handle. A piece of that titanium alloy actually flexes over to lock the blade in the open position. The pocket clip sits on that side and is polished steel. The Southard flipper from Spyderco is a medium sized folding knife and you can see them at www.knifecenter.com.

New Jason Brous Creations at the KnifeCenter

New Jason Brous Creations at the KnifeCenter

Jason Brous, the mastermind behind Brous Blades, is one of the great young craftsman on the rise in our industry. His first successful design, the Silent Soldier, was and still is among the most popular true neck knives we carry. Soon after the Silent Soldier came out, a fixed blade with three distinct bevels was created called the Triple Threat. Now, just over a year later, we are pleased to see coming through our doors a very well done folding version of that wicked knife. The 3-1/2″ blade is made from D2 tool steel and is a paired with a 4-1/2″ well textured and contoured G10 handle. Speed, ergonomics, lockup, fit and finish are right on par with knives of this price point.

The Coroner is the large fixed blade model we just received in and it really is an awe-inspiring piece of work. Brous has a strong background in CNC-machine work and that’s readily apparent with this knife. The 6-1/4″ spear point blade is a whopping 1/4″ thick piece of D2 tool steel but is not sharpened on both sides.  The chainsaw-like serrations on the blade spine are extremely well executed and designed to unleash devastating, non-lethal, impact strikes. The milled G10 handle is a little small for gloved hands but it locks the heavy knife in the hand extremely well. Besides the excellent milling work on the blade, the sheath is not far behind as the best part of this knife. The friction fit Kydex sheath is as slim and sleek as it is functional; one of the best executed Kydex sheaths I’ve ever seen. These are two great overbuilt knives that you can be sure not many other people will have, check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

New Zero Tolerance Model 0350OR and 0550BLK

New Zero Tolerance Model 0350 and 0550s

The very popular model 0350 has added yet another new variation to the family, this one with bright orange handles. The G10 on this model is slightly thicker than previous versions making for a more comfortable knife to hold and to use. The 3-1/4″ recurved blade is best described as a mix of bead blasted and stonewashed for a good looking and most likely very durable blade finish. The 0550BLK is the same exact knife as it was before but with a black DLC coated S35VN blade. The titanium locking side features the new more-Hinderer inspired frame lock and the same deep carry pocket clip found on the 0560 and 0561 models. Excellent ergonomics, good looks, and a real sense of toughness emanates from these two knives and there’s no doubt both would serve well in just about any application. Check out these brand new Zero Tolerance knives at www.knifecenter.com.
