This is a very well designed, high quality new combat knife from Jesper Voxnaes and Boker. It’s constructed from one solid piece of N690BO stainless steel with a beautiful stonewashed finish. The handle is contoured canvas Micarta with holes drilled through it allowing for the knife to be easily attached to a stick for a homemade spear. The clip point blade is an excellent tactical design that can also be pressed into hunting tasks with ease. Part of what makes a good fixed blade knife is having a good sheath and that’s definitely the case for the Boker JTN. The black leather sheath is extremely well made, visually appealing, and durable. It’s got a pouch on the front for extra survival gear and has Velcro and button attachments on the belt loop so the sheath can be put on and removed without having to undo your belt. A very nice knife from Boker that’s built like a tank and available at www.knifecenter.com.

The latest addition to the Spyderco line is the folding Puukko design by Pekka Tuominen, the Nilakka, and what a cool knife this is. Based off the successful Spydero FB28WDP Puukko and adapted for the folding knife enthusiast, the Nilakka is unlike any other knife in your collection. The squared off G10 handle is robust, comfortable in the hand and will not rip up your pockets. The knife buries deeply, opens smoothly and locks up tightly – as with all Spydercos. What makes the Nilakka unique is the zero grind it incorporates all the way down the blade to the cutting edge. There is not a separate bevel on the edge, which makes resharpening the knife more difficult but this kind of grind is unparalleled in slicing performance. You can find this unique folding knife at www.knifecenter.com.

Just in at the KnifeCenter is the really cool, high-value Survival Edge from Cold Steel. It’s a light duty bushcrafting design excellent for any utility task performed around the camp site. If you’re familiar with Mora of Sweden Knives, the Survival Edge is a very similar design with many more capabilities. The Secure-Ex sheath clips easily onto your belt and comes attached with a Ferrocerium fire steel to match the handle color. The 5″ mirror polished blade is made from German 4116 Stainless Steel which, according to Cold Steel, performs better than 420 and 440 series steels while providing improved corrosion resistance. What sets the Survival Edge apart is the extremely rigid, hollow handle design. With an internal length of three inches and diameter of one inch, there’s ample storage space for any small fishing, safety, or survival items. With a reasonably ergonomic handle, dual finger guard, and rubber O-rings for a secure grip, the Survival Edge is one useful tool and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

AITOR is a Spanish knife manufacturer produced under the brand Pielcu and they’re producing some fine quality, excellent designs at reasonable prices. They gravitate toward supplying the true survivalist but AITOR also makes one of the coolest tactical blades we’ve seen in the Oso Negro. It’s reminiscent of a Rambo style bowie knife but with a generous re-curve to the blade and extremely functional saw teeth on the spine. In fact all the survival designs with these same saw teeth are extremely sharp and bite really well for improved cutting performance. Sheaths on the AITOR survival knives are equipped with a small survival pack in a hidden compartment which generally include fishing and sewing kits, scalpel, compass, latex tubes (which can also attach to legs on the sheath to be used as a slingshot for hunting), and many other items depending on the particular model. They make camping utensils and other utility folding knives that are simple designs and good values for their overall quality. Check out the all the AITOR models at www.knifecenter.com.

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.

William Scagel, rest his soul, can be considered the father of modern custom knifemaking as many of his designs and techniques are still copied and used to this day. Scagel’s style of using stacked leather and stag, paired with a drop point hunting blade became popular for it’s quality, elegance, and high degree of function. Scagel Knives were always 100% handmade, as William preferred it, making original Scagel models extremely hard to come by. Today, a new company has begun remaking Scagel knives to the same exacting standards in Michigan and they come in two different fixed blade models, the Bowie and the Hunter. Whether you prefer stag or leather, a maneuverable 5-3/8″ blade or a larger 8″ size for more serious tasks, there’s a Scagel configuration for you. Get one in your hand and you’ll be able to tell the absolute quality of every William Scagel knife, available at www.knifecenter.com.

Skinning, quartering, dressing, light splitting, shaving, and whittling are only a few of the things the Diskin Hunter is capable of. Designed by custom maker Matt Diskin to be a field dressing knife that could also perform camp tasks, the 1085 is the happy medium between functional blade size and svelte, compact design. The blade is 4-5/8″ long with tons of belly and shaped like a cross between the Tremor and Rake models. The steel is 14C28N stainless, which will take an extremely sharp edge and provide excellent corrosion resistance so you won’t have to worry about your blade rusting out in the field. The thing that sets the Diskin Hunter apart is the handle. Made from textured G10, the handle being only one inch at it’s widest point makes it easy to get a good grip on, especially with gloved hands. The knife comes with a high quality leather belt sheath and is backed by the Kershaw lifetime warranty. Best of all is it’s made in the USA and can be found at www.knifecenter.com.
