Kershaw Kurai: Style, Substance, And Fantastic Value

Every once in a while, our friends over at Kershaw Knives come out with something new that generates a buzz around our office. When we first laid eyes on the new Kurai, we knew that they had come up with something really interesting.

The Kurai is a gentleman’s folder with style to spare, with carbon fiber-patterned aluminum handle scales. It doesn’t sacrifice substance either-it’s heavy for its size (in a good way), and its 2.5″ 8Cr13MoV blade with Titanium Carbo-Nitride coating provides great performance and corrosion resistance at an extremely reasonable price. Opening is smooth and easy with the thumb stud, and the linerlock is nice and solid. The Kurai makes a great gift, too! Check them out today at www.knifecenter.com!

Kershaw 1085 American Made Diskin Hunter is Superb

Kershaw 1085 Diskin Hunter is Superb

Skinning, quartering, dressing, light splitting, shaving, and whittling are only a few of the things the Diskin Hunter is capable of. Designed by custom maker Matt Diskin to be a field dressing knife that could also perform camp tasks, the 1085 is the happy medium between functional blade size and svelte, compact design. The blade is 4-5/8″ long with tons of belly and shaped like a cross between the Tremor and Rake models. The steel is 14C28N stainless, which will take an extremely sharp edge and provide excellent corrosion resistance so you won’t have to worry about your blade rusting out in the field. The thing that sets the Diskin Hunter apart is the handle. Made from textured G10, the handle being only one inch at it’s widest point makes it easy to get a good grip on, especially with gloved hands. The knife comes with a high quality leather belt sheath and is backed by the Kershaw lifetime warranty. Best of all is it’s made in the USA and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

Rick Hinderer Model from Zero Tolerance
Rick Hinderer Model from Zero Tolerance
Zero Tolerance produces some fine knives. They are all American made and are an extraordinary sample of American high quality manufacturing and design. This new model, the ZT0550, is one of their finest. It is a full size folder with a frame lock system. The blade is an aggressive shape using the newer style triabngle style with a wide base. The blade material is the top quality S35VN that a lot of custom makers use. There are four positions for the pocket clip. That frame lock is a massive system. The back side of the handle is titanium and the locking section of the handle folds over to lock the blade open. It’s really secure.
Here is more info from Kershaw, the makers of all Zero Tolerance: Continue Reading

Kershaw Compound-Combo Edge

Kershaw Compound-Combo Edge (KS1940ST)

Kershaw Knives, manufacturers of the super plain-edged Compound folding knife, have added a new combo edge version. Featuring Kershaw’s buttery-smooth, precise SpeedSafe® assisted opening mechanism (accessed by a built-in flipper), this knife opens with a very solid “click”, and is secured by a locking liner.

This Kershaw Compound sports a 3.5″ partially-serrated, heat-treated 8CR13MoV steel blade. Offering a removable clip for tip-up or tip-down carry, the Compound utilizes glass-reinforced nylon handles. The result is a very solid-feeling knife, yet it weighs just 3.8 oz.-and it costs just $25.95! Take a look at the combo edge Compound-and its plain-edged brother-at www.knifecenter.com!
