The Knifecenter has known Fred Perrin since the mid 1990′s. In fact, we put up the first web site for him! Today, Fred has his own knife company and we are thrilled to be able to sell these great items. Fred Perrin always has the most innovative designs and great materials. Fred was originally inspired by the Schrade Sharpfinger model as a useful tool. He has kept his innovative edge (pun intended) through the years and the pocket knives and combat knives that he currently produces are really great. They are all made in France

Jason Brous, the mastermind behind Brous Blades, is one of the great young craftsman on the rise in our industry. His first successful design, the Silent Soldier, was and still is among the most popular true neck knives we carry. Soon after the Silent Soldier came out, a fixed blade with three distinct bevels was created called the Triple Threat. Now, just over a year later, we are pleased to see coming through our doors a very well done folding version of that wicked knife. The 3-1/2″ blade is made from D2 tool steel and is a paired with a 4-1/2″ well textured and contoured G10 handle. Speed, ergonomics, lockup, fit and finish are right on par with knives of this price point.
The Coroner is the large fixed blade model we just received in and it really is an awe-inspiring piece of work. Brous has a strong background in CNC-machine work and that’s readily apparent with this knife. The 6-1/4″ spear point blade is a whopping 1/4″ thick piece of D2 tool steel but is not sharpened on both sides. The chainsaw-like serrations on the blade spine are extremely well executed and designed to unleash devastating, non-lethal, impact strikes. The milled G10 handle is a little small for gloved hands but it locks the heavy knife in the hand extremely well. Besides the excellent milling work on the blade, the sheath is not far behind as the best part of this knife. The friction fit Kydex sheath is as slim and sleek as it is functional; one of the best executed Kydex sheaths I’ve ever seen. These are two great overbuilt knives that you can be sure not many other people will have, check them out at www.knifecenter.com.

The SS Version 2 is a blacked out drop point model and the newest one to hit our shelves just last week was the Tanto neck knife with a bead blasted finish. The Silent Soldiers are some truly overbuilt little fixed blades from an up-and-coming designer in the industry out of Solvang, California. Jason Brous and company make all these knives by hand in the Brous factory from solid D2 tool steel and each blade comes with a friction fit Kydex sheath.

White River Knife & Tool was a new brand from Michigan that we discovered at the Blade Show in Atlanta this past month. They are producing some extremely high quality, functional knife designs and we knew they were a brand we had to offer to you guys. We chose to go with their cross-over Izula style knife, the Backpacker, and their small utility neck knife, the Knucklehead, thinking these models a pretty good representation of their overall brand. What sets White River Knives apart from the competition is that they’re machining all of these in-house from one solid piece of S30V. This stainless steel, from Crucible Materials Company, was the first steel specifically formulated to be used in knife making. Prized for it’s superior edge holding capabilities and corrosion resistance, CPM S30V will perform as well as your 1095 Carbon steel camp knives but rust at a fraction of the rate, even without the coating. All White River Knives come with a handmade Kydex sheath, an attached lanyard, and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

Shadow Tech Knives is a new brand for us here at the KnifeCenter and we are excited to have them. They bring an entirely new design to the combat knife table with their Scorpion and Stinger models. Fit with cylindrical shaped blades and steep grinds, they were designed to be concealed self defense knives for tactical situations, perfect for stabbing. If those aren’t quite your style, the push daggers with their multi-position carry clip can do all the same jobs and more. They pack a lot of blade into their compact designs and the Kydex sheaths attach easily to any belt. See these new knives from Shadow Tech at www.knifecenter.com.

Boker Plus Rambler Fixed 2-3/4″ Blade
A very cool little knife from Boker Plus. It was designed by an Austrian knifemaker and is really very unique. It is small and meant to be a backup knife in most situations. The sheath is a belt sheath and not a neck sheath as would be expected for a knife of this size. Looks are deceiving from the image because this knife could scale up perfectly to be a very useful camping or even kitchen knife, but at the size at which it has been produced, it is a backup- belt knife. I really like it, especially the design and materials, but you have to have a need or desire for a knife of this diminutive size. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
