Cold Steel 88CSAB 1917 Frontier Bowie

Cold Steel 88CSAB 1917 Frontier Bowie

The Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie may not be the prettiest piece in the collection but it will be one of the hardest working, that’s for sure. It’s a 1/4″ thick piece of nicely tempered 1055 carbon steel so you know it will stand up to any kind of use. The handle is beautiful rosewood and you’re prevented from sliding forward onto the 12-1/4″ blade by an over-sized “S” guard which can also be used as a place to rest your thumb during fine cutting tasks. The sheath is an excellent, quality design made of leather and it provides very adequate retention on the knife. This is a great value for such a ferocious cutter, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

Kershaw Knockout

Kershaw Knockout

The Kershaw USA made Knockout is a real winner. But then, I like fast opening flipper framelocks with wide blades and deep pocket carry clips that are made in the USA with great materials. Then the very thin profile and lightweight construction really just cinch the deal! That along with a reasonable price, of course. The olive green handle and black blade are also appealing to my taste. This knife really is a winner in my book. Kershaw has done well on this one, that’s for certain! See them at www.knifecenter.com

Kershaw Blackwash Thermite and Scrambler

Kershaw 3880BW & 3890BW

Kershaw Blackwash Thermite and Scrambler 

The Thermite and Scrambler were new assisted-opening flipper models introduced last year and they are here to stay! Each is designed by a powerhouse name in the industry, the Thermite by Rick Hinderer and the Scrambler by RJ Martin. Each is a superb EDC knife with high manufacturing quality and rocking Kershaw’s new Blackwash finish.

Schrade SCH601Ti Tactical

Schrade SCH601Ti Tactical

The Schrade 601Ti is one of the best knives they manufacture, and it’s not just because of the materials. D2 tool steel and Titanium handle scales with a solid frame lock are not Schrade’s norm, but this knife is something special. It’s got a great feeling in the hand, really just locks itself in, just from the handle shape alone. The radian recurved blade is angled for serious effectiveness in pull cuts and will hold an edge extremely well. Schrade seems to have taken a page out of Emerson’s playbook and used a Phillips screw for the pivot, which makes it very easy to adjust away from you torx screw set. We at KnifeCenter are extremely excited about this knife, it provides an excellent value in terms of it’s price and doesn’t sacrifice anything in terms of design or function. You can find them at www.knifecenter.com

DPx Gear HEST/F Limited Edition Folder

DPx Gear HEST/F Limited Edition Folder
This is a well made and well engineered folding pocketknife that will serve you well and last decades if not generations. The KnifeCenter likes the DPx products in general and this folder in particular. Each knife is numbered xxx/250 so you will know which one you received. The Niolox steel is well thought of in the knife collector community with a high wear resistance and sharpenability. The handle material is G10 – a common and effective material for its lightness and toughness, and titanium for the locking side. This is a common handle configuration in the knife industry and it really gives a great combination of utility and strength of lock. The titanium side of the handle has a piece that literally flexes over towards the blade so that, in the open position, it rests against the base of the blade locking it open. Simply moving it out of the way with your thumb allows the blade to close. It is a very strong lock when open and very easy to release to close. The pocket clip is designed for deep pocket carry. There is a pointed tungsten carbide glass breaking piece at the tail end of the handle as well. All in all, this is a real classic that you should consider adding to your collection or your pocket!

New SOG Bladelight Camp

SOG BLT21-K Blade Light Camp

The Bladelight Camp is a very cool fixed blade by SOG.  One might think that a “blade light” sounds kinda gimmicky, and it does, but the new SOG Bladelite actually “works”.  I personally don’t think the blade itself (although it is adequate)  is the best part of the overall offering.  What makes the Bladelight is the sheath and the surprisingly powerful light.  Although listed at ~ 37 Lumens, the light is emitted from 6  small bulbs making for a very powerful and  focused beam.   The light does not just work unsheathed, but with the sheath on as well – this is made possible by the six cutouts on the sheath and the Bladelight is equally bright with the sheath on or off.  The sheath also features an indentation enabling the knife to make small wire/line cuts even when sheathed.  Also there is a built-in sharpener on the sheath which is kinda handy.  Now,  more on the knife itself – it has a pretty good feel and the non-slip rubber handle makes it moderately grippy….and if you do drop it and it happens to break – it’s got a lifetime warranty so SOG will send ya a new one.  The steel is 8Cr13MoV which is a good “value steel” with a decent balance of edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.  Here at KnifeCenter, you can get this one with the satin blade and white light or with a black blade and red LED – KnifeCenter also offers a fillet knife version.
