The ultra durable, heavy duty Rat Model 1 has always been hindered in popularity by it’s five once carry weight and large tactical looking 3.6″ blade. For those who have long awaited a more carryable knife from Ontario with the same excellent design as the Model 1, you’ll thoroughly enjoy it’s new smaller brother – the Rat Model 2. This 7″ overall EDC folder comes in at only 2.7 ounces while boasting a 3″ AUS-8 blade available with or without serrations or a black blade coating. It’s a much thinner profile as well making for a much more easily carried knife that you can still depend on for the most serious cutting tasks. Check out the new Ontario Rat 2′s with pink or black FRN handles at www.knifecenter.com.

Queen Big Chief Folding Dive Knives
An American Classic from Queen Knives. The Queen Big Chief folding dive knives have been a staple of underwater construction workers, fishermen and anyone who lives or works or plays in a marine environment. Unfortunately, Queen Knives has discontinued them. We have a great stock, however, and you can buy them at www.knifecenter.com while our supplies last. They all feature aluminum handles and stainless blades and so are very rust resistant. Grab one- or two- while they are available!
Queen Dan Burke Sunfish Pocket Knife, Smooth Amber Bone Handle
We like conventional folders – knives still made in the old way and in old patterns. Queen has been producing knives for many decades and they still make them at a very high level of quality. They have partnered with Dan Burke, a custom knifemaker, for several years and come up with some pretty nice models. This Sunfish is no exception and it is not as pricey as some others have been.
Here is the Queen take as well as some Specs.: Continue Reading
Schatt and Morgan / Queen President’s Knife year 2006
Every year the Queen company produces a Schatt and Morgan President’s knife. We try to order them but missed this one a few years back. There were a few left and so we though we would bring them in for our collector customers. These are beautifully done with pearl inlay and the letters “S” and “M” inlaid on each with the opposite color pearl- black in white and white in black. Really gorgeous pieces- that’s why we were positively going to get these in even though we are late with them!
Here is the description from Queen: Continue Reading
