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.

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.

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.

Zero Tolerance 0350 Composite Knives
When we heard that Zero Tolerance was going to be offering their awesome 0350 in ZDP-189 steel, we were blown away. Then, they announced a composite version with an S30V spine and a ZDP-189 cutting edge, and blew us away again.
Offered in a satin finish, these gorgeous knives allow the user to clearly view the delineation between the two steels. ZDP-189 is one of the highest-performing stainless steels in the knife industry today, prized for its hardness and edge retention capabilities-and results in a WICKEDLY sharp knife (as my index finger discovered while writing this blog entry).
Designed by Ken Onion and manufactured in the USA, the composite 0350s offer the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opener, allowing smooth one-handed opening. These knives sport textured G-10 handles an adjustable quad-carry pocket clip. They’re available in both plain and partially-serrated edges. Individually numbered, these limited-edition knives are going fast, so pick one up (carefully!) at www.knifecenter.com!
