Introducing a new brand of overbuilt, well made, tactically designed edged tools – Quartermaster Knives – also known as QTRM5TR. Taking Mantis Knives to the next level with all USA-made products (and components), they’re doing it right and they’re doing only a limited number of each model. Every knife is individually serialized and hand checked to make sure only the finest combat cutlery is leaving their shop and hitting our shelves. Utilizing CPM154 for their first production runs, every knife incorporates QTRM5TR’s proprietary ORB® pivot system which is a smooth as any available on the market today. It makes actuating the large and small blades QTRM5TR uses a breeze and can be adjusted with the same Torx bit as all the rest of the screws on the knife.

Just in at the KnifeCenter is the really cool, high-value Survival Edge from Cold Steel. It’s a light duty bushcrafting design excellent for any utility task performed around the camp site. If you’re familiar with Mora of Sweden Knives, the Survival Edge is a very similar design with many more capabilities. The Secure-Ex sheath clips easily onto your belt and comes attached with a Ferrocerium fire steel to match the handle color. The 5″ mirror polished blade is made from German 4116 Stainless Steel which, according to Cold Steel, performs better than 420 and 440 series steels while providing improved corrosion resistance. What sets the Survival Edge apart is the extremely rigid, hollow handle design. With an internal length of three inches and diameter of one inch, there’s ample storage space for any small fishing, safety, or survival items. With a reasonably ergonomic handle, dual finger guard, and rubber O-rings for a secure grip, the Survival Edge is one useful tool and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

AITOR is a Spanish knife manufacturer produced under the brand Pielcu and they’re producing some fine quality, excellent designs at reasonable prices. They gravitate toward supplying the true survivalist but AITOR also makes one of the coolest tactical blades we’ve seen in the Oso Negro. It’s reminiscent of a Rambo style bowie knife but with a generous re-curve to the blade and extremely functional saw teeth on the spine. In fact all the survival designs with these same saw teeth are extremely sharp and bite really well for improved cutting performance. Sheaths on the AITOR survival knives are equipped with a small survival pack in a hidden compartment which generally include fishing and sewing kits, scalpel, compass, latex tubes (which can also attach to legs on the sheath to be used as a slingshot for hunting), and many other items depending on the particular model. They make camping utensils and other utility folding knives that are simple designs and good values for their overall quality. Check out the all the AITOR models at www.knifecenter.com.

New one of a kind knives from Chris Reeve! When it comes to production knives, Chris Reeve stands alone atop the mountain. He has made many innovations and collaborated on designs that have forever changed our industry. He is the father of the one-piece knife concept, with his original model MK IV, the chief innovator of the Reeve Integral Lock, commonly referred to as a Frame lock, and was even crucial to the development of S30V stainless steel. He worked alongside the Crucible Materials Company to develop the first steel specifically designed for the cutlery industry. The various inlays, CNC machined graphics on the handle scales or beautiful Devin Thomas Damascus steels can make your production knife one of a kind. If you don’t love Chris Reeve Knives, then you probably haven’t handled one – they’re that awesome. Check out all the Chris Reeve fixed and folding offerings and the new one of a kind models while they last at www.knifecenter.com.

DPx Gear, in partner with Italian knife manufacturer LionSteel, is doing some amazing things with their excellently designed HEST Folder. After almost a year of field use gathering opinions, suggestions, and modification ideas, DPX Gear has come out with their Triple Black special edition folder with some serious tactical improvements. The main complaint about their original folder by soldiers serving all over the world was that it just wasn’t tactical enough. The knife lacked serrations and the Titanium lock side and clip were too darn visible and with this simple idea at heart, the new HEST T3 was born. The knife now comes with a tactical black G10 handle scale, a PVD-coated Titanium lockbar, and is free of any discernible markings on the blade or clip. This allows for the knife to disappear into the night and with the sharp biting serrations, it’s possibly the perfect combat theater tool. Another awesome new feature of the Triple Black T3 folder is that the skull shaped adjustment tool now incorporates a built in compass. For it to function correctly, the tool had to be made from a non-magnetic alloy and what better for this than Titanium. Adjust your tactical tool with style and be sure to get yours before they’re gone forever, strictly limited to 500 production pieces. You can find this stout, tactical folder at www.knifecenter.com.

Just in from across the pond, we’re thrilled to announce the arrival of new Chris Caine Survival Tools from Scorpion! These incredible tools have handles sculpted from colored G-10, renowned for its toughness, light weight, and ability to resist abrasion, water, and chemicals.

Designed by survival expert Chris Caine, who’s got more than two dozen years of experience surviving in the English countryside, these awesome tools are handcrafted from start to finish. Intended mainly for chopping, most of the weight is situated in the forward part of the blade, which makes quick work of processing firewood.

Pick up a Survival Tool or the smaller Companion model today to take into the wilderness with you tomorrow-it’s the last camp knife you’ll ever need!
