There are few outdoor activities you can practice within the comfort of your own home or office. When we discovered the satisfaction of hitting a 1′ target across the office with a small dart shot from a blowgun, it changed the office atmosphere altogether. Stress levels have dropped significantly, and employees treat each other with greater respect now. The blowguns from Cold Steel are surprisingly accurate, even with little training.
The blow guns are available in 4 or 5 foot lengths, with an optional 2 foot extension. We have found that additional length adds to the range and accuracy. A quiver attached to the blowgun keeps track of a dozen darts. There are several variations of darts for those who go beyond target practice. Happy shooting from www.knifecenter.com!

The new Strike Fighter knives from Ontario are well designed, stout back-up tools meant for any military or law enforcement personnel. The handle shape and texturing are borrowed from the successful XM-1 Military folders and made from removable black Micarta slabs. Each knife comes with an excellent plastic molded friction fit sheath that secures the knife tightly without rattling and has an attached Tek-Lok from the factory. There are two sizes of the fixed Strike Fighters available – the SG-3 with a three inch blade and the SG-2 with a stubby two inch blade. It beats me why anyone would need such a little fixed blade, when the SG-3 model can do everything it’s smaller brother can plus much more. Overall, these are very comfortable and durable new American made designs that will not fail you when you need them. Check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

What makes a good Buchcraft design is an easily resharpened blade, comfortable handle, and of course a good sheath. The new Boker Plus Classic Bushcraft knife gets all of these things right. The 4″ 440C blade may not be the best looking I’ve ever seen but it will cut well and resharpen quite easily. The black Micarta handle scales have a huge lanyard hole for 550 cord and are nicely rounded for a comfortable grip. The leather sheath is a simplistic drop-in design but it secures the knife very well so you’ll have no fear of losing it. The Classic Bushcraft knife comes from Boker Plus in very nice gift packaging complete with a fire steel and striker, which must be carried separate from the sheath. Check it out this affordable new design at www.knifecenter.com.

If you’re looking for a decently made, economical all around camp knife that’s rugged, well built, as well as visually appealing – look no further than the Garuda by Condor Tool & Knife.

This is a very well designed, high quality new combat knife from Jesper Voxnaes and Boker. It’s constructed from one solid piece of N690BO stainless steel with a beautiful stonewashed finish. The handle is contoured canvas Micarta with holes drilled through it allowing for the knife to be easily attached to a stick for a homemade spear. The clip point blade is an excellent tactical design that can also be pressed into hunting tasks with ease. Part of what makes a good fixed blade knife is having a good sheath and that’s definitely the case for the Boker JTN. The black leather sheath is extremely well made, visually appealing, and durable. It’s got a pouch on the front for extra survival gear and has Velcro and button attachments on the belt loop so the sheath can be put on and removed without having to undo your belt. A very nice knife from Boker that’s built like a tank and available at www.knifecenter.com.

The latest addition to the Spyderco line is the folding Puukko design by Pekka Tuominen, the Nilakka, and what a cool knife this is. Based off the successful Spydero FB28WDP Puukko and adapted for the folding knife enthusiast, the Nilakka is unlike any other knife in your collection. The squared off G10 handle is robust, comfortable in the hand and will not rip up your pockets. The knife buries deeply, opens smoothly and locks up tightly – as with all Spydercos. What makes the Nilakka unique is the zero grind it incorporates all the way down the blade to the cutting edge. There is not a separate bevel on the edge, which makes resharpening the knife more difficult but this kind of grind is unparalleled in slicing performance. You can find this unique folding knife at www.knifecenter.com.
