The DOC (Death on Contact) is one awesome AUTO folder. This collaboration between Mick Strider of Strider Knives and Anthony Marfione of Microtech, won Most Innovative Design and Collaboration of the Year at the 2013 BLADE Show. It’s large, tactical, rugged, fast, ergonomic and fun. The safety switch doubles as the push button for this folder and the grind lines on the blade are absolutely gorgeous. A great quality folding design you definitely can bet your life on. See it at www.knifecenter.com.

The full tang grip is finished with hand crafted Linen Micarta scales for maximum grip in all conditions. This capable axe will take on any task at hand. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
The LionSteel TM1 is another sensational design from Molletta. Previous solid handle folders were frame locks i.e. the SR-1 and 2 as well as the TiSpine. The TM1 spent much time in development to get the solid handle and lockback mechanism to work correctly and we’re glad they found a way in the end. It uses a double spring lockback mechanism which is strong and has the added benefit of being fully ambidextrous for right and left handed users. Another first for LionSteel is their incorporation of the IKBS ball bearing pivot which ensures top notch performance and extremely smooth action. The handle is made from a single piece of either Micarta or Carbon Fiber and then CNC machined into a strong, extremely ergonomic shape for a comfortable grip. This is by far the fastest, most ergonomic folder so far from LionSteel, take a closer look at www.knifecenter.com.
The Bad Blood Wisper is one sweet looking blade. With the grooved, dual-tone red and black G10 handle, the Wisper is not only easy on the eyes but fits perfectly in your hand. When you need it, you will have a comfortable and sure grip no doubt. The finger choil and ample thumb ramp make up for the worthless jimping on the blade spine and really prevent you slipping forward onto the blade. Features a reinforced tip for added stabbing strength and comes with a friction fit sheath that you can use on a pack, belt or boot. Take a look at this cool new knife at www.knifecenter.com.
CRKT Ken Steigerwalt’s Clark Fork is a must have for fisherman of any level.

Designed by the survival experts over at ESEE Knives, Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall, and produced by Blue Ridge Knives, the Avispa is a hybrid between the Ontario RAT handle combined with the blade style of the Zancudo folder. Compared to the Zancudo, it features a larger, more capable 3.5″ blade for better cutting power. Features a nice, slim design with a full-size blade in stonewash or black. Handles are textured FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon) in the front with a stainless steel back. The framelock lockup feels solid and the blade easily glides open using the dual-thumb stubs. The Avispa will surely appeal to many with its 4-way pocket clip making it 100% ambidextrous. Overall, this is a great choice for an EDC for anyone looking for a high quality, full-size folder not looking to break the bank. See all models at www.knifecenter.com.
