Happy New Year everyone!
2010 promises to be the best one yet. We have a great crew at the KnifeCenter and great products to offer you. We hope to have a brand new web site up within months that will have features far beyond anything you have seen – at least in our industry. Everyone is hoping the world’s economy picks up and the manufacturers keep doing well so that they can offer more new products. It’s a great time to be a part of ecommerce and the cutlery and housewares industries.
Best wishes to all our wonderful customers and may all your dreams come true!

Quick takes on some Bladeshow 2009 NEWS!
Boker will offer the Batman folder that was designed by a S. African
designer. Blade is like civilian except has the inside of the batwing.
It folds really narrowly so the fit in the pocket is good. It will be
a while for production. Spyderco has some great items as usual. The Mannix 2 will be here soon. This is a heavy medium size folder with the ball lock and $120 retail – all made
in the US. 154CM hollow saber ground with jumping all around 4 way
clip. The framelock titanium handle Military, framelock sage – and
then we will see a bolt lock model- like Gerber used on the parabelum.
Creative energy may be slowing down with the economy. If you want
innovative products everyone needs to support it – buy more knives!
Crucible steel may have filed for chapter 11 protection so we may be
losing a great knife steel company.
Darryl Ralph is designing an OTF auto. We will have cuda max type opener. soon.
