At SHOT Show 2014, we order a cool little knife by DPx Gear and it has finally arrived. The DPx HIT (Handle Inversion Tool) has an integral pivoting blade guard that forms the handle and locks when closed. The design includes a carabiner so you can hook it on a bag and not worry about losing it…ever. It’s made in the U.S.A. by White River Knife & Tool, another brand we are very fond of and, of course, designed by Robert Young Pelton. A unique knife that we are glad to see and is a great addition to any collection or go-bag. See more about it at www.knifecenter.com.
What are you carrying today? I have my Kershaw Shallot with Damascus Blade.
When it comes to Survival or Camping knives these two CRKT’s are what you’re looking for. Both the 3500 HoodWork and the 3510 HCK1 Hood are made from 1095 high carbon steel with durable G10 or Micarta handles. If you’re in the hunting in the mountains, camping in the woods or anywhere in between, these knives can do the job you need them to do. The leather sheath each is supplied with is as durable and well designed as the knives are. It’s natural tan leather with a 3″ x 1″ pocket for a sharpening stone or fire steel and secure button closure. See both these awesome American Made knives at www.knifecenter.com.
The Pohl Force Foxtrot Three Outdoor Folder is the same design as the Foxtrot One, but features a wicked tactical tanto blade. The G-10 handle has 3D milled SRM texturing which feels as good as it looks. The frame lock is outfitted with the RotoBlock system for safety and also includes a reversible tip up carry pocket clip. It’s lightweight, slim, robust, and provides a ton of reach. Basically this is one awesome knife. See it at www.knifecenter.com.
The Microtech Halo V might just be the coolest Out the Front Auto on the market right now. At the very least, it’s the fastest opening knife in our building, hands down. The Halo V knives are large, powerful, visually appealing, and come complete with a Kydex belt sheath. The blade is a whopping 4.6″ of premium steel with a variety of shapes and configurations. The blade fires hard and fast, while still being safe and very unlikely to actuate inadvertently – requires a good amount of sharp force on the button to fire. All around these are awesome tactical knives and you can find them at www.knifecenter.com
This is a great target throwing axe. The Gil Hibben Gen X Pro Throwing Axe is one piece of rock hard stainless steel that is razor sharp and can do damage from both ends. Believe me, you will not get bored throwing this axe, just tired. The weight is properly balanced for easy throwing and for getting the blades to stick into the target.

After waiting for… ever! The Emerson La Griffe is back! 100% made in America this is a sweet neck knife. Features one piece 154 CM steel construction with a razor sharp chisel ground blade and black oxide finish. This was originally designed as a back-up weapon for many police and military personnel as their last resort weapon, so I’m sure it will do the job for you. Get yours before they’re gone at www.knifecenter.com.
Kershaw didn’t just make another folding knife with the Strobe, they used their KVT ball-bearing system for a fast, easy open and based on a fixed blade they released years ago – the Diskin Hunter. If you were a fan of that knife, which all of us here still are, but want it in a more compact, folding version, well here you go. With a 3.3″ stonewashed blade and just over 7.5″ overall length, it’s a good size folder for any task and lighweight enough to carry anywhere. Take a closer look at www.knifecenter.com.
