It’s commonplace nowadays for manufacturers to work with custom designers for “collaborations”, which are really just production versions of their successful custom knife designs. The wait is finally over for the Farid Mehr K2 and Marcin Slysz Bowie, knives introduced earlier this year at the Amsterdam Meet. These similar looking, yet drastically different knives are absolutely fantastic. Their full Titanium handles utilize Chris Reeve Integral frame locks and have a nice anodized feeling providing adequate grip. The blades are about the same shape but that’s where the similarities end. The K2 is a whopping 10″ overall with a non-movable hourglass pocket clip. It features CPM-S10V steel, which may just be the next wonder-steel. The Slysz Bowie is a much more manageable 7.8″ overall with CTS-XHP stainless steel and my absolute favorite Spyderco wire clip. Quality is absolutely superb on both of these knives, now you just have to decide how big is too big for you! www.knifecenter.com
The Spyderco Kiwi 4 is larger than the original which is great for people with larger hands. The G10 handle has a double finger choil for a solid grip and is extremely comfortable to hold. The Kiwi 4 as a sturdy lock back mechanism which is easy to manipulate and has the awesome wire clip – by far a favorite of ours. Last but not least, it features a flat ground VG-10 wharncliffe blade and Spyderco’s trademark thumb hole for easy opening. Need a great every day carry knife to set you apart from others?

The Pygmy Warrior combat knife from Spyderco is one awesome, tactical fixed blade. It features a CTS-BD1 steel blade with a hollow-ground plain cutting edge and serrated edge spine portion. The skeletonized full-tang handle features FRN Bi-Directional Textured scales and a superb jimped thumb ramp. Includes a Boltaron i.e. hard plastic sheath with a multi-positional Spyderco G-clip attachment. This is a smaller, more carriable version of the discontinued Warrior model that was one of the best tactical designs on the market at the time. This will serve just as well and is available now at www.knifecenter.com.
Three great knives based on one of Spyderco’s most popular and time proven designs – the Delica 4 Lightweight. In its standard configuration, the Delica features a 2-7/8″ VG10 stainless steel blade. The Kahr Arms version have a shorter 2-1/2″ blade with a reverse tanto-ish sort of blade for added strength toward the tip. To further enhance the Kahr Delica’s discreet image, it is available with a choice of three different handle colors: black, khaki and denim blue to match your daily attire and each comes with a four-position clip for you’re preferred carry style.

What are you carrying today? I got my Spyderco Delica4.
This is a sweet little blade for everyday use. Its full-flat-ground CTS XHP steel blade offers exceptional cutting performance and offers both a Carson-inspired flipper and a fully functional “Trademark Round Hole” for opening, which is so smooth you would think it’s assisted. The handle features a solid titanium scale on one side and a cubic check carbon fiber/G10 laminate scale on the other which does look pretty cool. A robust Reeve Integral Lock with a long wearing hardened steel interface provides the blade with stout, durable lockup for years to come. The four-position pocket clip – a unique feature on a flipper – offers ambidextrous tip-up or tip-down carry. All in all a great EDC knife you will be proud to use and abuse.

The Tusk is both a state-of the art mariner’s tool and part of Spyderco’s history. The original design dates back to the early days of Spyderco’s beginning with Sal Glesser’s desire to produce a high performance mariner’s tool. The technology at the time was not available for the visionary concept. That’s all changed today, redesigned by Sal’s son Eric Glesser more than 25 years later has
brought to light the original Tusk with new modern twists. Made from all highly rust resistant materials the Tusk features a blade made from LC 200 N and full titanium scales including a Reeve Integral Lock.
