Gil Hibben’s Karate Master is Back!
Gil Hibben is a knife maker well known for designing the knives used in Rambo III and Rambo IV. However, one of his first major contributions to the knife world was the Kenpo knife, a knife now used in the Kenpo long form VIII. A handmade version of this knife was given to both Ed Parker and Elvis Presley, fellow practitioners of Kenpo. The Karate Master is a classic reproduction of the Kenpo knife by United Cutlery which is being brought back due to popularity.
The shape and weight of the blade allow for excellent penetration, and the slant of the hilt allows it to be held with the thumb on pressed against the hilt. This method of holding the knife is much more stable and powerful than the common method, which results in the thumb pointing down.

Spyderco Matriarch Recurved Folding Knife
One of the most anticipated Spyderco Sprint runs of the last several years is the Matriarch with Coco brown Zytel (FRN) handles. We don’t know how many we will be able to get before they are all gone, so do not tarry. This smaller version of the ever-popular Civilian is the ultimate in a self defense tool, even for the untrained. This is one of the few Spydercos that, because of its application, is as popular in serrated as it is in plain.

New Boker Plus Besh Wedge Neck Knife!
This neck knife combines the idea of the Besh-Wedge blade with the convenience of a neck knife. The four inch blade is slender, and extremely sharp right out of the box.
The entire concept of the Besh-Wedge blade is pretty incredible. Rather than a typical knife with one or two sharpened sides and a point, the primary variation of the Besh-Wedge has two sharpened sides which converge into a sharpened wedge tip. It is no wonder that this design is taking the industry by storm. The actual knives are difficult to properly describe, and the pictures do not do these knives justice. You really need to see it to believe it. And at $19.95, there is no excuse to not satisfy your curiosity with the Boker Plus Besh-Wedge Neck Knife.

New Kershaw Blurs- Including ZDP model
Kershaw Knives has released plenty of their BLUR models through the years. They have been released with a myriad of blade steels and handle colors and we love the fact that our customers have such a great variety to choose from. They have finally released a ZDP-189 steel blade model and it’s great. The BLUR ZDP has a dark brown handle and the blade is a composite and so there is a jigsaw puzzle-like line where the softer steel meets the super hard ZDP. The BLUR handles have a rubbery insert for better traction in wet environments.
The orange handle model features 154CM stainless steel which is also a premium material. The orange color is also distinctive.
