We’ve been selling Krudo Knives at the KnifeCenter for some years now, but we have recently expanded the selection greatly. Designed by martial arts expert Louis Krudo, these self defense tools are designed to help the user fend off and disable an attacker. Louis is a real knife-guy and a great character that we greatly admire. The design of his self defense knives is unlike anything else you have seen. While several of these SNAG tools are unsharpened, they’re not limited to use as “trainers”-most of the Krudo “pain management techniques” utilize the unsharpened, textured hook to grab or apply pressure to an assailant.

You may think this picture of these new Svord items is a joke but by no means does it even do justice to the shear vastness of the Hog Beater and the compact size of the EDC fixed blade, an excellent alternative to the Izula. The Hog Beater is a hunting dagger with a whopping 11-1/4″ double edge blade, convex sharpened as all Svord knives are. The hardwood handle and black leather belt sheath make for a very good looking package on this devastating hunting design. The EDC fixed blade is 6-1/8″ overall with a 3″ blade and orange cord wrapped handle. The package gets a nice style upgrade with the brown leather sheath which makes the design feel like it’s double the price and belongs at your side at all times. The only drawback to the knife design is that the finger cutout is a little shallow so your index finger is at risk of running onto the blade while stabbing. All Svord knives are made from high quality Swedish carbon steel and convex ground for a sharp, durable edge for all cutting tasks. You can see the new Svord designs at www.knifecenter.com.

The ultra durable, heavy duty Rat Model 1 has always been hindered in popularity by it’s five once carry weight and large tactical looking 3.6″ blade. For those who have long awaited a more carryable knife from Ontario with the same excellent design as the Model 1, you’ll thoroughly enjoy it’s new smaller brother – the Rat Model 2. This 7″ overall EDC folder comes in at only 2.7 ounces while boasting a 3″ AUS-8 blade available with or without serrations or a black blade coating. It’s a much thinner profile as well making for a much more easily carried knife that you can still depend on for the most serious cutting tasks. Check out the new Ontario Rat 2′s with pink or black FRN handles at www.knifecenter.com.

New for 2013, they’re expanding their inventory to include not just batons, pepper spray, handcuffs, and high quality carry cases but some serious EDC and keychain flashlights for the tactical professional. If you’ve already got an ASP baton, accessorize it with the tactical Triad attachment which replaces the end cap with a 70 lumen LED flashlight that’s tough as nails. Or if you’re just looking for an everyday carry lighting option, they’ve got you covered with the compact Tungsten flashlights or a Triad model available in AA, CR123 or 18650 Lithium, all putting out over 200 lumens.

Ken Onion Ripple gets a Redo
The Ripple series has been a great selection since they were introduced last year. This iteration has really dressed them up. The handles are a lot smoother with a steel material rather than the aluminum they formerly came with. The blade steel has also been upgraded to the Acuto 440 which comes harder and should give very good service to the user. The overall feel and “walk and talk” of the knives is, in our opinion, much improved. As always, they fly open on ball bearings making any spring assist mechanisms unnecessary. You can see the entire Ripple Series HERE or you can see the new ones HERE

After the overwhelming success of our first run of Exclusive M390 Gunhammers, the KnifeCenter is extremely excited to see the new batch of these awesome tactical knives come in with the Torpedo style blade shapes. Available in either serrated or honed, spring-assisted or manual opening, you now have the choice between a tactical black DLC coated blade or an attractive Stonewashed finish. If you choose to go with a manual opening knife but are not familiar with the Maxx Glide Pivot System these knives utilize, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. This ball bearing design is exclusive to knives by Darrel Ralph and it really does close the speed gap between assisted and manual knives. With little to no wrist action, the blade flies open using the thumb studs or flipper mechanism and locks up solidly with the overly-thick titanium lockbar. M390 Steel from Bohler is an excellent performance steel balancing corrosion resistance and extremely high hardness (62HRC) which provides superb wear resistance during hard use cutting. You can check out these new M390 Gunhammer models exclusively at www.knifecenter.com.

New Damascus from Boker Plus
Boker Plus has long been known as the brand the Boker of Solingen offers with the innovative designs that they can offer at reasonable prices because they’re made in Taiwan or China. They keep getting better and better at producing pocket knives and hunting knives that are world class in quality and materials and still reasonably priced. These two new offerings in Damascus steel are a case in point. The traditional folder has all the design points from Boker’s Solingen made Optima series and their lockback series with the curved bolsters. They have done the blades as well as the bolsters is beautiful Damascus and the knife makes a gorgeous folding lockback at an incredible price. The Damascus Cuisine folding pocketknife is equally elegant as an all Damascus handle contains both a long pen blade and a fork entirely made of the elegant layered steel. Personally, I don’t care who made these pocket knives, they are beautifully made and will be a real keepsake for anyone who owns one.

KnifeCenter is very excited about all of CRKT’ s new 2013 offerings. While at the 2013 SHOT show (Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show) we had the opportunity to see and play with many of their new items including the MJ Lerch designed Enticer. Thanks to the glass filled nylon handles, this knife is extremely light (just 2 ounces) and is a perfect light weight cutting tool for many tasks. Blade opening is shockingly quick with CRKT’s patented FireSafe mechanism which, for the first time, is used with a thumb-disk to engage the mechanism. The drop point blade is 3.2” and is composed of 1.4034 steel which is known for its hardness and good corrosion resistance. The Enticer comes in either a Satin Plain blade or a combo edge version. The Enticer is available now for pre-order here at KnifeCenter.
Other new items from Columbia River Knife and Tool include the Ken Onion Redemption (described in our blog here); the Onion Para-Saw Paracord Survival Bracelet , nylon paracord that’s braided into a bracelet form—with a plastic encased, tungsten carbide coated wire saw woven into the braided cord; the Endorser, featuring a 3.1″ drop point blade and CRKT’s patended OutBurst® assisted opening system; the fixed blade Sakimori; and many other new items that can all be found here.
