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
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.

New Zero Tolerance 0700 Model Pocketknife
The new Zero Tolerance 0700 is a very tip heavy tanto blade, and we like it! The handles are thin but comfortable to grab in both forward and reverse grip. The blade is S30V, the scales are G10, nothing is second rate. Although not as heavy as some other Zero Tolerance models, it does not compromise blade strength. If you need an under 5 inch tactical folder with a strong, aggressive blade, this is the knife you want.

New Zero Tolerance Model 0160 Combat Knife
Zero Tolerance designs their knives with a no-nonsense attitude. These are knives that are meant for heavy duty use in combat situations. The Model 0160 is no exception. The full flat tang ensures stability and power, reflected in the heft of the knife. The blade, on the other hand, will hardly reflect anything at all, because of the Tungsten DLC coating. The thick spine reinforces the knife’s power, while the sleek shape boosts the agility. The sheath utilizes a positive holding system that holds the knife well, but it also includes a snap strap for extra security.
As an American made item, you know that the materials are high quality as well, with premium Sandvik 14C28N steel for the blade, and grippy 3D machined G-10 scales.

New Kershaw Field Knife and Skinner
It seems like knives are getting more and more complex. Sometimes you just need a little simplicity. Kershaw really takes this lesson to heart with the introduction of the Field Knife Hunter and the Skinner. These knives feature a single piece of metal with G-10 scales for grip. This simple design means that there are fewer ways to go wrong. The full flat tang adds stability, and the textured G-10 scales improve grip. The long edge on the Field Knife makes it great for slicing and general tasks, while the deep belly on the Skinner Knife is designed for skinning, as the name suggests.
Both of these American made knives are going for under $40.
