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.
You may not have heard much about Bad Blood Knives, but I’m here to tell you that they are great hard use EDC option. Built along the lines of the Ontario RAT model 1 and 2 knives, they are overbuilt to the teeth. Full liners, thick stainless steel blades, and contoured G10 handles make them both attractive as well as durable. These two new models are popular fixed blade models engineered into tactical folders. The Razorhoof and Partisan Nano are two superb designs we are glad they’ve made into viable EDC options. A hawkbill blade like the Razorhoof is ideal for self defense while the belly of the Partisan Nano lends itself well to all your utility cutting tasks.

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.

Spyderco Hungarian Design Folding Knife
Spyderco’s ethnic series has amazed a lot of us through the last several years. They have taken designs – some ancient – and modernized them in their own inimitable fashion, into modern Spyderco models. Included among them are the Jot Singh Khalsa, Bob Lum Chinese Models, the Ed Schempp Navaja, and the Nilakka Folding Puukko among others. This model, however, is really exceptional. The eastern European flavor is reflected in the stylized handle which fits an average sized hand very well. The dual extensions on the highly polished bolster serve as a thumb rest on top and a guard on the inside of the handle. The materials seem really well thought out a with nicely polished and well formed G10 handle along with a top quality steel blade that is what Spyderco calls a full flat grind- meaning flat from the top of the blade to the top of the final bevel that goes to the cutting edge. Although all parts of the handle, bolster and pocket clip are highly polished, the blade is left with a satin finish. This is a great knife, made in Taiwan and presented at Spyderco’s high level of quality. Collector’s will want to have one of these so that, in years to come, they will be able to take this out and amaze others. The liner lock works very well and is buried just enough to avoid accidental release. These swing open easily, lock securely and close conveniently. We see this latest entry from Spyderco Knives as a real winner, even though the price is not low. You get what you pay for- at least in this case, and in our opinion.
