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.

Is it a tactical combat knife or a wilderness blade? That’s for you to decide. The Combat Kukri from KA-BAR is an extremely versatile knife built to handle the toughest tasks with ease. Fitted with an 8-1/2″ curved blade, the Kukri is well designed for chopping and hacking or for draw cuts and slashes. The Kraton handle provides a good, hand-filling grip and also helps to reduce shock absorbed by the hand. The pommel at the butt end adds to the knife’s capabilities, allowing for light hammering and smashing duties. For a knife measuring in at just over 13″, the best thing about the Combat Kukri is it’s weight. At 13.4 ounces, you get enough weight behind it to get the job done but the balance of the knife makes it feel much lighter and it’s very very maneuverable. Whether you’re a combat professional or weekend camper, try out a Combat Kukri for yourself and find out just how great this knife really is. Best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA and available at www.knifecenter.com.
