Spartan Blades Akribis Folders

Spartan Blades Akribis Folders

Here at the KnifeCenter, we strive to offer you the best edged tools available and we believe these Akribis folders fit that bill nicely. Spartan Blades is well known in the industry for their stout, well built fixed blade designs. The fit and finish on any Spartan Blade is very Chris Reeve-esque with great attention paid to the ergonomics and cutting angle of each knife. The Akribis is their first folding knife and we are very excited about this one. It features titanium handles, with a Rick Hinderer lock bar stabilizer, available in meteorite grey or flat dark earth and your choice of G10 or carbon fiber scales. The 3-1/2″ blade is made from S35VN stainless steel and also comes in your choice of a meteorite grey or black PVC blade coating. The opening action is buttery smooth and the loud click of the lock bar engaging is one sweet sound you’ll definitely appreciate. This is a hard use, tactical folder that’s as at-home in your jeans or khakis as it is on your LBE. There’s no doubt you will be proud to show this knife off to your friends, check them all out at www.knifecenter.com.

Medford Knife and Tool – Amazing!

medfordblogMedford Knife and Tool – Amazing!

We’ve had Medford products for several weeks now and I haven’t gotten around to a Blog post- because they have been coming and going out in a fast and furious fashion. These combat knives and folding knives are amazing- they are strong, well made and well designed and not inexpensive- and the public loves them. We ordered them back in January and they finally arrived in July, and this is the typical lead time on these items. They are absolutely worth the wait. The whole operation is a reflection of the creators, Greg and Amy Medford in Phoenix, AZ. These two are dynamic, high spirited, fun and creative individuals with a real passion for the product and the business. They have an amazing process for each knife that includes fully hand grinding each blade and fitting each knife together to the utmost perfection. The fit and finish on these workhorse big, honkin’ knives is superb. The materials are great and the the packaging is super professional. We see a lot of products come through the Knifecenter, but the Medfords have really raised the bar in all these respects. Look for great things in the future with a quicker production cycle, but the knives will never be better than they are now. They may have automatic grinders in their production down the road, but now everything is ground by hand. You may regret not getting these early models.

Today, Fred has his own knife company and we are thrilled to be able to sell these great items. Fred Perrin always has the most innovative designs and great materials. Fred was originally inspired by the Schrade Sharpfinger model as a useful tool. He has kept his innovative edge (pun intended) through the years and the pocket knives and combat knives that he currently produces are really great. They are all made in France

Boker Plus Squail – Very Nice for the Price

Boker Plue Squail - Very Nice for the Price

 

Very Spyderco Vallotton and Starmate-esque, the new Boker Plus Squail is a large tactical folder with serious style. The designer, Charles Marlowe, is known for combining function with elegance in all his designs, whether they be tactical or utility in nature. The Squail features a large 4″ 440C blade that is beautifully stonewashed and has a nice-sized thumb hole for easy actuation. The handles are linen Micarta paired with matte finished titanium bolsters for a refined looking and feeling knife. The jimping on the spine is very sharp for excellent purchase and the liner lock, though not grooved like it is in the picture, does lock the knife up with no play whatsoever. This is another awesome piece from Boker Plus and their decision to go with production versions of custom knife designs is paying off with some really excellent products. Keep your eyes peeled for more new designs and check out this handsome new tactical knife at www.knifecenter.com.

New Svord Hog Beater and EDC Fixed Blade

New Svord Hog Beater and EDC Fixed Blade

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.
