KnifeCenter Exclusive M390 Gunhammers by Darrel Ralph

KnifeCenter Exclusive M390 Gunhammers by Darrel Ralph

Hand Tech Made (HTM) Knives are production versions of custom designs from some of the most well known knife designers in the industry. They feature work by Dirk Pinkerton, Randall King, Kirby Lambert,  Greg Lightfoot, and Darrel Ralph. The Gunhammer, with three very different yet capable blade styles, is one of the most successful tactical designs we’ve come across at the KnifeCenter. Available in your choice of serrated or honed, coated or bead blasted, you now have a choice between the spring-assisted opening or the manual version featuring the Maxx Glide system. If you’re not familiar with the Maxx Glide Pivot System, it’s exclusive to designs by Darrel Ralph and it really does close the speed gap between assisted and manual knives. With absolutely no wrist action, the blade flies open using the thumb studs or flipper mechanism and boy does it lock up solidly with the over-thick titanium lockbar. All these great features are available on all Gunhammer models but what makes this Exclusive is the M390 Super Steel we got the folks at HTM to use for this run of knives only. Balancing excellent corrosion resistance and extremely high hardness (62HRC), M390 Steel from Bohler provides superb wear resistance during hard use cutting. Limited to only 30 production pieces per model, pick up your Exclusive M390 Gunhammer today at www.knifecenter.com.

Chris Reeve Knives – New One of a Kinds

Chris Reeve Knives - Unmatched Quality

New one of a kind knives from Chris Reeve! When it comes to production knives, Chris Reeve stands alone atop the mountain. He has made many innovations and collaborated on designs that have forever changed our industry. He is the father of the one-piece knife concept, with his original model MK IV, the chief innovator of the Reeve Integral Lock, commonly referred to as a Frame lock, and was even crucial to the development of S30V stainless steel. He worked alongside the Crucible Materials Company to develop the first steel specifically designed for the cutlery industry. The various inlays, CNC machined graphics on the handle scales or beautiful Devin Thomas Damascus steels can make your production knife one of a kind. If you don’t love Chris Reeve Knives, then you probably haven’t handled one – they’re that awesome. Check out all the Chris Reeve fixed and folding offerings and the new one of a kind models while they last at www.knifecenter.com.

DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 T3 Triple Black Special Edition Folder

DPx Gear HEST/F 2.0 Triple Black Special Edition Folder

DPx Gear, in partner with Italian knife manufacturer LionSteel, is doing some amazing things with their excellently designed HEST Folder. After almost a year of field use gathering opinions, suggestions, and modification ideas, DPX Gear has come out with their Triple Black special edition folder with some serious tactical improvements. The main complaint about their original folder by soldiers serving all over the world was that it just wasn’t tactical enough. The knife lacked serrations and the Titanium lock side and clip were too darn visible and with this simple idea at heart, the new HEST T3 was born. The knife now comes with a tactical black G10 handle scale, a PVD-coated Titanium lockbar, and is free of any discernible markings on the blade or clip. This allows for the knife to disappear into the night and with the sharp biting serrations, it’s possibly the perfect combat theater tool. Another awesome new feature of the Triple Black T3 folder is that the skull shaped adjustment tool now incorporates a built in compass. For it to function correctly, the tool had to be made from a non-magnetic alloy and what better for this than Titanium. Adjust your tactical tool with style and be sure to get yours before they’re gone forever, strictly limited to 500 production pieces. You can find this stout, tactical folder at www.knifecenter.com.

Benchmade Gold Class 940-121 Osborne AXIS Folder

Benchmade Gold Class 940-121 Osborne AXIS Folder

The model 940 from Benchmade could very well be the perfect EDC knife. I honestly can’t find a single negative thing to say about it. The materials, craftsmanship, ergonomics, and attention to detail are all absolutely superior. Take all this and multiply it ten-fold for 2012, introducing the Gold Class model 940-121 by Benchmade. This knife, already near perfect, gets a true overhaul sparing no expense by using the best premium materials available on the market. The CPM-M4 super steel blade is finished in a clear protective coat called Cerakote and paired with the green titanium handle and carbon fiber bolsters, it creates a very pleasing look. If you’ve ever handled any of the 940-943 series of knives, you’ll know I saved the best part of it for last; the size. For a blade just a hair under 3.5″ and weighing in at only 3.2 oz., this knife absolutely disappears in your pocket. When closed, the knife is only 1-1/8″ wide at it’s largest point so you can slip your hand, phone, keys, or another knife into your pocket without obstruction. Gold Class knives are truly custom level production blades, see for yourself at www.knifecenter.com.
