Just in from across the pond, we’re thrilled to announce the arrival of new Chris Caine Survival Tools from Scorpion! These incredible tools have handles sculpted from colored G-10, renowned for its toughness, light weight, and ability to resist abrasion, water, and chemicals. Available with red or orange handles, you won’t find these anywhere else-they’re exclusively at the KnifeCenter.
Designed by survival expert Chris Caine, who’s got more than two dozen years of experience surviving in the English countryside, these awesome tools are handcrafted from start to finish. Intended mainly for chopping, most of the weight is situated in the forward part of the blade, which makes quick work of processing firewood. They have a convex grind, ideal for toughness and edge retention and the entire blade is razor sharp so everything from batoning kindling to stripping off bark is easy work. Pick up a Survival Tool or the smaller Companion model today to take into the wilderness with you tomorrow-it’s the last camp knife you’ll ever need! Remember, the only place you can find these is at www.knifecenter.com!

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.

Every year Spyderco Knives produces limited production designs available in different handle or blade materials than their originals known as Sprint Runs. For 2012, they are upgrading the extremely popular Endura model, making the matching model to the Damascus/Jigged Bone Delica from 2011. Featuring layered VG-10 Damascus steel, blue titanium bolsters, and jigged bone scales, the Endura Sprint is great for any Spyderco fan or collector. The knife does not have a pocket clip and it adds a little weight to their Lightweight and FFG models, but you get so much more with this knife. It’s got the feel of a custom knife in the familiar package of an old favorite and the Damascus etching on each blade is unique, making each knife one of a kind. You can see this at www.knifecenter.com.

Spyderco Jester – The Return of a Great Knife
Spyderco Knives released the Jester many years ago and we loved it then! It’s a small key ring type folder without a pocket clip featuring a mid-back lock. The original had a plastic handle, but this re-release features a gray color G10 handle. This is a limited release called a “sprint run” and so they will be sold out soon. Grab one if you like them. They make about the best key ring knife made anywhere.
You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
