The Mini-AXIS Stryker may be a smaller version of the original but don’t underestimate this little guy, he is just as rough and rugged as his big brother. It’s an excellent size if you prefer compact EDC blades and is definitely a fun knife to play with and to use. Comfortable ergonomics, textured G10 handles, smooth Axis lock, and functional drop point blade are standard. The new deep carry pocket clip is a huge improvement over the standard painted clip on the original, see the new Mini-Strykers at www.knifecenter.com.
Checking out the new carbon fiber handle on this Zero Tolerance 0770 model, you really get an appreciation for the simple aesthetic beauty of the knife. This strong, light weight design is just beautiful and is ergonomically comfortable in almost any hand. It opens lightning fast thanks to the SpeedSafe assist mechanism and the Elmax steel blade is among the best on the market. This is a must see knife you can find at www.knifecenter.com.
With its strength, toughness, deep carry clip, excellent design and sweet looking BlackWash finish, this is a great EDC knife. The textured G10 scale and stainless steel handle gives a very firm grip, no matter what size hands you have. I would be happy to have this knife in my collection and know you will be too.

The SM-10T fixed blade knife from US custom knife maker Sal Manaro is based on a design that Sal originally developed for a SWAT officer. The design is rugged, strong, tactical, and reliable. The whopping 6.7 mm thick construction of the blade gives you a piece of mind that you can count on this knife for anything and everything. The single piece of 440C stainless steel is hollow ground along the main edge length to ensure a reasonably sharp cutting edge and flat ground near the tip to provide maximum strength. The textured G10 scales, adequate jimping, and great finger guard all ensure a firm grip and it includes a rugged kydex sheath with belt adapter. See it at www.knifecenter.com.
ONE TOUGH KNIFE THAT’S EVER-READY FOR WORK, UTILITY, AND EVERY DAY CARRYING. Get your hands on a Whirlwind and you won’t want to let go. This one will be your constant companion whether you’re on the jobsite, working in the garage, or doing chores around the house. The first thing you’ll notice is how this big handful of a knife nestles into your palm. The ergonomic design and the tough, glass-filled nylon handle scales provide a grip that’s comfortable, secure, and ensures that you’re always in control of the cut. Next, of course, you’ll want to try out the razor-sharp blade. Just push on the thumbstud and—twack!—the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism moves the blade out of the handle and it locks securely into place, ready for use. The blade is a classic drop-point, perfect for handling a wide range of tasks—pretty much anything you care to throw at it. The blade steel is high-performance 14C28N. Developed in a partnership between Kershaw and Sandvik Steel, it offers excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, and edge retention. In fact, Sandvik considers this the highest-performance steel available that can still be fine-blanked. We would have to agree. But the only way you’re going to know for yourself is to get a Whirlwind of your own at www.knifecenter.com.
