The Medford Praetorian G/T is one mighty knife. It’s kind of like a cross between a Strider’s beefy wideness and the size and strength of an Extrema Ratio folder. You get a very cool, very wide tanto style blade made from D2 tool steel with a tactical black oxide coating. The handle is very thin relative to the width of the blade, giving you exceptional cutting power for a folding knife. If you’re looking for a great tactical knife and one that is absolutely bomb-proof, look no further than the Medford Praetorian, also available in a more carriable Micro version.
The Anniversary Series is a great new look for the Boker Optima with a beautiful Grenadill wood handle and stainless steel blade. A great addition to any ones collection, this knife is very well built and extremely comfortable to use. A classic pocket knife made in Germany, check it out right here at www.knifecenter.com.
The Kershaw Nura is a Dmitry Sinkevich designed folder that uses the Kershaw’s KVT ball-bearing system for smooth, easy opening without a mechanical assist. It’s very well balanced and comfortable in the hand. The Nura handle design has a sleek, streamlined look and feel, while still feeling robust and durable. Both the blade and the handle are titanium carbo-nitride coated for a matte gray finish, while the handle flats have been sanded to provide a desirable satin finish. Great jimping and blade shape make this a great EDC knife that you won’t hesitate to use an abuse. See all details at www.knifecenter.com.
The Mini Division Flipper is a scaled down version of the awesome, full-size Division folder. The brushed, satin finish D2 blade utilizes an integrated flipper for quick blade deployment on the ball bearing pivot system. The handle’s slim profile allows for easy carry and the flipper doubles as a finger guard for safe cutting and stabbing. This is the knife you reach for when you need it, the quality of Brous Blades are on par with Microtech and LionSteel. See all details at www.knifecenter.com.
Burchree Bladeworks has teamed up with Boker Plus for the Impetus folding knife. This collaboration on the Michael Burch design has a big, beefy blade made of 440C stainless steel with a dark stonewashed finish. The handle fills the hand well and the black G10 scale looks great next to the orange peel texturing of the steel bolster. The action is buttery smooth with the IKBS ball bearing system and the stout liner lock makes for tight lockup. Definitely a great everyday carry knife that can stand up to a beating, find it at www.knifecenter.com.
Check out the Southern Grind Bad Monkey collection. Out of the box these knives are razor sharp and ergonomically fantastic. The Bad Monkey comes in a couple different configurations. You can get either a drop point or modified tanto blade, plain or partially serrated, and finished in either tumbled satin or Cerakote armor black. Then of course you can have your choice of G10 colors or lightly textured carbon fiber models that comes with a leather coozie, paracord bracelet, and keychain.

It’s commonplace nowadays for manufacturers to work with custom designers for “collaborations”, which are really just production versions of their successful custom knife designs. The wait is finally over for the Farid Mehr K2 and Marcin Slysz Bowie, knives introduced earlier this year at the Amsterdam Meet. These similar looking, yet drastically different knives are absolutely fantastic. Their full Titanium handles utilize Chris Reeve Integral frame locks and have a nice anodized feeling providing adequate grip. The blades are about the same shape but that’s where the similarities end. The K2 is a whopping 10″ overall with a non-movable hourglass pocket clip. It features CPM-S10V steel, which may just be the next wonder-steel. The Slysz Bowie is a much more manageable 7.8″ overall with CTS-XHP stainless steel and my absolute favorite Spyderco wire clip. Quality is absolutely superb on both of these knives, now you just have to decide how big is too big for you! www.knifecenter.com
The Extrema Ratio NK1 is a tactical neck knife made from one solid piece of Bohler N690 stainless steel. This highly corrosion resistant steel has a very high hardness as well, leading to better than average edge holding capability. The handle is close to the sharpened edge and presents a curved recessed area on the lower side to place your index finger and to avoid injury when pulling the knife from the Kydex sheath. If you need a solid neck knife with a comfortable handle, look no further than the Extrema Ratio NK1. See it now at www.knifecenter.com.
