The Kershaw USA made Knockout is a real winner. But then, I like fast opening flipper framelocks with wide blades and deep pocket carry clips that are made in the USA with great materials. Then the very thin profile and lightweight construction really just cinch the deal! That along with a reasonable price, of course. The olive green handle and black blade are also appealing to my taste. This knife really is a winner in my book. Kershaw has done well on this one, that’s for certain! See them at www.knifecenter.com
Kershaw Blackwash Thermite and Scrambler
The Thermite and Scrambler
were new assisted-opening flipper models introduced last year and they are here to stay! Each is designed by a powerhouse name in the industry, the Thermite by Rick Hinderer
and the Scrambler by RJ Martin
. Each is a superb EDC knife with high manufacturing quality and rocking Kershaw’s new Blackwash finish
. This black coated, then tumbled finish is quickly becoming the preferred look here at the KnifeCenter
for it’s durable and tactical properties. G10 handle scales, 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, and adequately thick frame lock mechanisms provide these knives with everything they need to be part of your EDC rotation. Best of all, at $41.95 apiece, these won’t break the bank. See these great knives at www.knifecenter.com
RJ Martin has a knack for functional blade shapes and comfortable, ergonomic handles. Many of his custom and limited production knives sell for $500 and up, so to get one of his designs at this price is remarkable. Kershaw, as well as Boker and some other manufacturers, is very adept at taking high end custom designs and turning them into production pieces. No corners were cut designing, engineering, and manufacturing the 3890 Scrambler. The assisted opening blade can only be opened with the flipper mechanism since it lacks conventional thumbstuds. The SpeedSafe mechanism is quick, strong, durable, and proven. It can be found on countless different Kershaw designs.
The best way to describe the Scrambler is that it is an extremely sleek looking and functioning knife. There’s no jimping on the blade spine which I can live without, but some people might call it a crime that they left out this important part of ergonomics. However, the shape of the handle locks this knife into your hand just fine. The machining work on the backspacer, as well as the G10 handle with stainless steel bolsters, adds to the aesthetics of the knife making it a folder you will be proud to carry every day. The frame lock mechanism, ultra stout pocket clip, and coating on the steel parts of the knife add to the design’s strength and wearability. This is a knife you should have in your collection and it can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

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!
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.
Here is more info from Kershaw, the makers of all Zero Tolerance: Continue Reading
