Have you seen the new Anthony Griffin Custom Folders.
The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4, might just be the most balanced knife that DPx offers. It’s discrete enough to keep a low profile, but it’s large enough to handle jobs that would compromise most four-inch knives. The 3.94″ blade is high-performance, German-made Lohmann Niolox stainless steel and is cryo-hardened to a Rockwell Hardness near 60. Lohmann Niolox steel is prized for its ability to hold up to abuse and to retain a cutting edge and this knife has proven that. It’s held a durable cutting edge through repeated hard use on a variety of wood, bamboo, cardboard, and other mediums. It’s survived neglectful treatment, tons of batoning, and is thick enough to give you reassurance at the tip when drilling holes. Niolox combines the best qualities of stainless and high-carbon steels to provide you with a superior hard use tool. There is a storage compartment hidden within the G10 handle designed for small items like fishing line, hooks or water-purification tablets. The MOLLE compatible nylon sheath is durable, compact, and features a quality Velcro pouch the perfect size for a fire starter and small sharpener. The HEFT 4 was designed by Tommaso Rumici with input from Robert Young Pelton and is manufactured by LionSteel of Maniago, Northern Italy. See it at www.knifecenter.com.
The DPx Gear HEAT folder is just the right amount blade that you need in a compact, pocket friendly package. Compared to the super popular HEST/F they’ve dropped the blade size to just over 2-1/4″ but did not sacrifice the great thickness leaving the business end of a sword grind that snaps quickly into action. They eliminated the hex drive slot for a typical round lanyard hole and the aluminum back spacer for completely flow-through design with barrel spacers but kept that confident, beefy feel that HEST/F folder owners love. The blade is Sleipner steel, and from experience with the MilSpec HEST folder, is an awesome user steel that is used in commercial meat processing machines to give you a cutting edge that lasts well past what you might be used to. Finally they back it with the same no nonsense, no questions asked warranty that Robert Young Pelton demands. Check out this new hard use EDC blade at www.knifecenter.com.
The Cryo has been one of the most popular new Kershaw knives to be released in a decade, and they have continued to expand the offering with new sizes and handle materials. This version is probably the best suited for a real-world EDC of any they have made to date! The Kershaw Cryo, designed by Rick Hinderer, is one of Kershaw’s best-selling knives. And now it’s available with one of our customers’ most-asked-for modifications: a G-10 front scale. This new Cryo not only looks good, it also offers the extra grip some of you have been asking for. The G-10 scale also lightens the overall weight of this very practical knife. The Cryo was the result of collaboration between Rick Hinderer and the design and production engineers at Kershaw. It’s designed to satisfy users’ craving for a Hinderer knife, but at a price that meets the demands of their wallets. The original Cryo (model 1555TI) was selected as a Blade Show “Best Buy” and as Men’s Journal Approved Gear. Like all Cryos, the G-10-handled Cryo is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Access it with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. The blade steel is heat treated to Kershaw’s exacting standards. The handle has a G-10 front scale with a stainless steel back. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade open during use and a Hinderer lockbar stabilizer ensures the lock doesn’t over-extend. The new Cryo G-10 is equipped with a four-position deep-carry pocketclip for maximum carry flexibility and discretion. Go see it at www.knifecenter.com
