Spyderco Mehr K2 and Slysz Bowie

Spyderco Mehr K2 and Slysz Bowie

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.
