The Curve is a compact, easy to use, highly portable model that always provides the right amount of pressure to the edge when you pull it through.

Finnish knives, commonly bunched all together as Puukko designs, are built solely with the user in mind. The knives are attractive, comfortable, sturdy, and best of all, sharp! EnZO designs, and most Puukkos for that matter, generally feature a Scandi grind, which is like a flat ground blade without the secondary bevel. The edge of the blade generally goes up about half way up the width of the blade, or higher, making for a sharper edge that is also easier to resharpen. EnZO knives are perfect for bushcrafting as well as everyday carry since the handles are perfectly sculpted to provide the best ergonomics possible for every hand size. EnZO knives are some of the highest quality designs we have in the Puukko category and best of all, they won’t break the bank. Check out these awesome new knives from Finland at www.knifecenter.com.

The tides of the fixed blade knife are a-changing and Hardcore Hardware Australia is riding that wave and doing it very well. These days people are flocking to the larger, bulkier knives that have a multitude of uses beyond cutting. They want to be able to chop, pry, split, saw, dig, hammer, break, etc. from a single tool that they always have at their side. Much like Mercworx, Robson RPW, and Medford Knives, these are meant for battlefield use and hard use at that. All blades and tactical axes are made from Teflon coated D2 tool steel and measure at least 6 mm thick. This gives you peace of mind that Hardcore Hardware knives can handle what needs to be done, even if not intended to do so. Fit and finish is right up there with Spartan Blades when it comes to fixed knives, they are just perfectly ground, honed, and assembled to give you a tool that will last years.

If you’re looking for a conversation starter, something that will impress each and every person you show it to, this is it! True, many people will scoff at it or ask you what happens when you encounter a TSA agent with this in your pocket, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s the convenience of having a blade with you at all times, even if you forget your EDC knife, and ease of which you can remove the case with the torx bit it comes with that makes this an excellent product. All you have to do is pop out the four corner screws and viola, you’re in business. I’ve had my TactiCall for a little over a month now and after you get used to the added weight, it really becomes a highly useful and functional tool. I was wary at first that the bottle opener would apply too much force to the back side of the phone and could break it, but that’s definitely not the case, ha. The opener is strongly reinforced by the design of the case and it pops the tops off quickly and effectively the first time, every time. The knife comes as sharp as any karambit blade out there and locks up solidly right out of the packaging. The pivot is adjustable if any play develops using the same supplied torx tool as you use to remove the case, so you always have a properly functioning knife. This is a very useful product and does an excellent job protecting your iPhone 5, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
The Mad Blacksmith, better known as Jared West, has a distinct style unlike any other. From his knife designs to his other far out products, you will find a cool new item you know you need but never thought would be a reality. The City Dweller Pen Lanyards are just that sort of item. The idea is to disguise the fact that you have a knife by attaching a lanyard with a 2-1/2″ piece resembling a pen. The execution is the key here and these well done products function exactly as designed. Tie the 550 paracord through the lanyard hole, clip it in the pocket and it’ll be nearly impossible to tell you’ve got a knife on you at all. The Mad Blacksmith stands up for your rights to carry a knife without unwarranted attention or accusation. Check out these bold new lanyards at www.knifecenter.com.

A long-lasting friendship with some of the insiders at QTRM5TR Knives has allowed Knifecenter a very unique opportunity. QTRM5TR has just recently introduced it’s “second season”. This time, QTRM5TR has decided to pay homage to another pop culture favorite television show from the 80’s. Set in Hawaii, and filling our heads with images of scantily clad beach bunnies and Ferrari’s; the show has left a lasting impression with a lot of us males, aged 30-60.
At first discovery, the names seem strange, but once the overall theme is realized, it’s quite amusing and certainly a unique way to draw a kinship with their customer base. The names of the knives hardly matter at all once it’s in your hand. The angular, modern and industrial stylings of their knives are attractive and unique, but the surprisingly comfortable ergonomic-grip in the midst of all the angles and edges is remarkable.
The use of a new Carpenter Alloy in these knives is a great choice. We’ve received stellar reviews of the CTS XHP alloy and their newest air-hardened, high-carbon, chromium steel offering certainly won’t disappoint either. CTS BD4P alloy is a high-performance blade steel offering a fine, uniform carbide structure yielding excellent edge retention and grinding/polishing characteristics.
All in-line QTRM5TR Knives come equipped with the ORB® pivot system and tri-spoke pivot assembly: These two features will continue to further separate this new American brand from its competition and allow them to yield more popularity in the years to come. The folders are so smooth and lock up is so solid that you’d think they were customs that were triple the price. Get them now. We bought the entire run of pre-production examples, no one else on earth has these knives for sale.
