These just came in! First they had competing shows on television and now they’ve got competing product lines for your hard earned dollars. Introducing Camillus’ answer to Gerber’s Bear Grylls line; the Les Stroud series of survival tools. They’ve got all your wilderness bases covered and then some with these classic, functional, and stout designs ranging from the pocket folder to full size machete. Each knife features a carbonitride titanium 440 stainless steel blade, grippy ergonomic rubber handle, and an included fire steel. That’s right, even the small folding knife comes with a fire starter tucked away into the handle so it’s never far away from a capable striker. All the fixed blade knives come with excellent sheaths and at the price point, they will definitely be hard to beat for capability, durability, and style. Find the right knife for your particular excursion at www.knifecenter.com.

The model 940 from Benchmade could very well be the perfect EDC knife. I honestly can’t find a single negative thing to say about it. The materials, craftsmanship, ergonomics, and attention to detail are all absolutely superior. Take all this and multiply it ten-fold for 2012, introducing the Gold Class model 940-121 by Benchmade. This knife, already near perfect, gets a true overhaul sparing no expense by using the best premium materials available on the market. The CPM-M4 super steel blade is finished in a clear protective coat called Cerakote and paired with the green titanium handle and carbon fiber bolsters, it creates a very pleasing look. If you’ve ever handled any of the 940-943 series of knives, you’ll know I saved the best part of it for last; the size. For a blade just a hair under 3.5″ and weighing in at only 3.2 oz., this knife absolutely disappears in your pocket. When closed, the knife is only 1-1/8″ wide at it’s largest point so you can slip your hand, phone, keys, or another knife into your pocket without obstruction. Gold Class knives are truly custom level production blades, see for yourself at www.knifecenter.com.

5.11 Tactical is a well known gear and clothing supplier for law enforcement, military, and fire/rescue professionals. What’s not as well known in the tactical community is their extensive tool, flashlight, and knife offerings. New for 2012, 5.11 Tactical has introduced the Double Duty series of folding knives which are great all around utility tools. The Karambit folder is a more tactical design with a 3-3/4″ black coated main blade and 1-1/2″ utility spike, perfect for punching holes. The Rescue folder has a carbide glass breaker, a 3-3/4″ sheepsfoot blade for safer cutting, and a 1-1/2″ serrated blade for fine detail work. The FRN handles are very ergonomic in the saber and reverse grips, and both blades on each knife lock into position so they won’t close on your fingers during hard use. The 5.11 Tactical Doubly Duty series may not be your typical knife designs but they sure will get the job done again and again. See them both at www.knifecenter.com.
