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.
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. You can find them at www.knifecenter.com
