Hogue Knives Neck Knives

Allen Elishewitz Neck Knives

Hogue Knives Neck Knives

Now that these EX-FO3 knives from Hogue have arrived, I’m think really gonna miss the winter weather. No longer can I carry my knife hanging around my neck concealed inside my jacket – which is precisely where these blades belong. Created by one of our favorites Allen Elishewitz, this strongly built, extremely well made design is a super EDC fixed blade option. The cryogenically treated 154CM steel blades take an extremely fine edge and holds that edge for quite a while – from extensive experience with the EX01 folding model. These neck knives are comfortable in the hand, as they should be from Hogue, and the thumb ramp is perfectly placed for your thumb to provide the most cutting power with minimal effort. The best thing about these new neck knives is that the sheaths are designed to hold the knife with the edge facing either way so it’s a cinch to resheath these miniature bad boys. Check ‘em out at www.knifecenter.com.

New LionSteel Knives

LionSteel Knives

LionSteel has shipped some of the prettiest knives we have seen. Their TiSpine series is famous as one of the most artistically conceived and artfully executed pocket knives on the market. The handle is milled in its 3 dimensions from a single piece of titanium alloy and the fit and finish are superb. Combine that with America’s Chad Nichols Damascus steel for the blade and you have an elegant and exquisitely made piece of pocket jewelry.  You can see these at www.knifecenter.com

New SOG Bladelight Camp

SOG BLT21-K Blade Light Camp

The Bladelight Camp is a very cool fixed blade by SOG.  One might think that a “blade light” sounds kinda gimmicky, and it does, but the new SOG Bladelite actually “works”.  I personally don’t think the blade itself (although it is adequate)  is the best part of the overall offering.  What makes the Bladelight is the sheath and the surprisingly powerful light.  Although listed at ~ 37 Lumens, the light is emitted from 6  small bulbs making for a very powerful and  focused beam.   The light does not just work unsheathed, but with the sheath on as well – this is made possible by the six cutouts on the sheath and the Bladelight is equally bright with the sheath on or off.  The sheath also features an indentation enabling the knife to make small wire/line cuts even when sheathed.  Also there is a built-in sharpener on the sheath which is kinda handy.  Now,  more on the knife itself – it has a pretty good feel and the non-slip rubber handle makes it moderately grippy….and if you do drop it and it happens to break – it’s got a lifetime warranty so SOG will send ya a new one.  The steel is 8Cr13MoV which is a good “value steel” with a decent balance of edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.  Here at KnifeCenter, you can get this one with the satin blade and white light or with a black blade and red LED – KnifeCenter also offers a fillet knife version.

Spyderco C172CFBLTIP Domino Folding Knife

Spyderco C172CFBLTIP Domino Folding Knife
The Spyderco  Domino is a great newer model from Spyderco Knives. It really has a lot of the best features of modern folding knives. It is a frame lock with a Chris Reeve style titanium side. This means that a piece of the actual frame or side of the knife handle flexes over when the pocketknife is open to brace the bottom of the blade to lock it in the open position. To release it, you simply push the frame piece over with your thumb and close the blade. It makes for a really intuitive process and easy one hand operation. This locking system is one of the strongest offered. The blade steel is a premium steel from the American Carpenter Steel Company and is considered similar to the non stainless D2 steel, but this steel is stainless and so is very corrosion resistant. The blade grind is flat which is preferred by many. The flipper works great for really easy and fast opening. The feel in your hand is superb with jimping (roughening) on the thumb ramp on topand a great recess for your first finger in the lock groove. Very nice!The size is great as it isn’t so large as to be a problem carrying and also large enough and with a wide enough blade to do real work. I would call it a medium to large size This model also features a beautiful blue carbon fiber handle opposite the titanium one and it really is gorgeous. This is an elegant, but very usable pocketknife with a lot of great modern features. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
