This week we’re happy to bring you a knife from Kit Carson’s aluminum-handled line at a greater than 50% discount. The lightness of the aluminum handle is one of the first things you’ll notice while handling this knife. The second thing you’ll probably notice is how smoothly and quickly it deploys with the patented “Carson flipper” - this despite having almost zero blade play. And then of course there’s the blade itself – made of premium AUS8 steel in a non-reflective finish, the blade has a deep belly terminating in a spear point; in fact the design of the spear point blade is very similar to that of Japanese spears, which were designed with one purpose in mind – to go right in when thrust into anything. You’ll have a hard time finding an EDC that matches the quality, craftsmanship, and features of this knife, especially at the price at which we’re offering it this weekend. Get yours before they’re all gone!

RJ Martin has a knack for functional blade shapes and comfortable, ergonomic handles. Many of his custom and limited production knives sell for $500 and up, so to get one of his designs at this price is remarkable. Kershaw, as well as Boker and some other manufacturers, is very adept at taking high end custom designs and turning them into production pieces. No corners were cut designing, engineering, and manufacturing the 3890 Scrambler. The assisted opening blade can only be opened with the flipper mechanism since it lacks conventional thumbstuds. The SpeedSafe mechanism is quick, strong, durable, and proven. It can be found on countless different Kershaw designs.
The best way to describe the Scrambler is that it is an extremely sleek looking and functioning knife. There’s no jimping on the blade spine which I can live without, but some people might call it a crime that they left out this important part of ergonomics. However, the shape of the handle locks this knife into your hand just fine. The machining work on the backspacer, as well as the G10 handle with stainless steel bolsters, adds to the aesthetics of the knife making it a folder you will be proud to carry every day. The frame lock mechanism, ultra stout pocket clip, and coating on the steel parts of the knife add to the design’s strength and wearability. This is a knife you should have in your collection and it can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

Henckels Four Star German Kitchen Knife Sale!
Zwilling J.A. Henckels is probably the largest producer of German kitchen cutlery. Although they offer a cheaper line imported from China, The Knifecenter offers only their top quality items. The Four Star line is probably the most recognizable and popular and also the most imitated of their entire line. These never go on sale- but they are now! We were shocked when they told us to put the line on special, but here it is. You can select their Chef’s knives, paring knives, block sets and just about the entire Four Star series. This opportunity doesn’t come along that often, so you might want to take advantage while you can. – Here’s a tip, though. If you price shop for Henckels- always look for the items with the two stick figure twins in the logo. If you see just one stick figure, those are imported from China. Ours all have the two figures. See all the sale Henckels at www.knifecenter.com

Stilettos are known for their fast action, thin profiles, and symmetrical spear point blades. Bear OPS has created a smaller sized Stiletto folder that will serve you as an excellent EDC utility knife. The best thing about this knife, besides the S30V blade of course, is the lightweight yet strong aluminum handles. They’re shaped eerily similar and have the same anodized feeling as the Benchmade 940/943 and comes with a reasonably deep carry pocket clip. Take the Reaper Z handles or leave them, it’s up to you. For my money they’re something different in the collection so fine by me. This knife features a liner lock, smooth fast action, and flow-through design for easy cleaning. Proudly made in Alabama, this knife is available at www.knifecenter.com.

Very rarely do we get knives in the door that we have to double, then triple check the price to make sure we got it right. That’s just the case with the new Boker Plus Colubris, an all-around fixed blade designed by DJ Urbanovsky. When you get this knife in your hand, it’s a lot like the Ontario RAT folders, you just can’t believe what you’re getting for the price. True, the blade is made from 440C steel but the way Boker heat treats and finishes these blades, you end up with a great user steel that will hold an adequate edge. Other than the knock on the steel, we wouldn’t change a single thing about the knife. The G10 handle is ergonomically contoured for a comfortable grip in multiple positions and the aesthetic dimpling/texturing provides good purchase. The modified Wharncliff blade is angled for deep, effective slicing and has enough belly for most of your utility work. I strongly feel a fixed blade knife is only as good as it’s sheath, and the friction fit Kydex sheath you get with the Colubris is right on point. It perfectly fits the knife with little to no rattling sound, and comes with a multi-position Boker belt clip, which functions exactly the same as a Spyderco G-Clip. Check out this awesome new Boker Plus knife at www.knifecenter.com.

Finnish knives, commonly bunched all together as Puukko designs, are built solely with the user in mind. The knives are attractive, comfortable, sturdy, and best of all, sharp! EnZO designs, and most Puukkos for that matter, generally feature a Scandi grind, which is like a flat ground blade without the secondary bevel. The edge of the blade generally goes up about half way up the width of the blade, or higher, making for a sharper edge that is also easier to resharpen. EnZO knives are perfect for bushcrafting as well as everyday carry since the handles are perfectly sculpted to provide the best ergonomics possible for every hand size. EnZO knives are some of the highest quality designs we have in the Puukko category and best of all, they won’t break the bank. Check out these awesome new knives from Finland at www.knifecenter.com.

The tides of the fixed blade knife are a-changing and Hardcore Hardware Australia is riding that wave and doing it very well. These days people are flocking to the larger, bulkier knives that have a multitude of uses beyond cutting. They want to be able to chop, pry, split, saw, dig, hammer, break, etc. from a single tool that they always have at their side. Much like Mercworx, Robson RPW, and Medford Knives, these are meant for battlefield use and hard use at that. All blades and tactical axes are made from Teflon coated D2 tool steel and measure at least 6 mm thick. This gives you peace of mind that Hardcore Hardware knives can handle what needs to be done, even if not intended to do so. Fit and finish is right up there with Spartan Blades when it comes to fixed knives, they are just perfectly ground, honed, and assembled to give you a tool that will last years. Check out this newest bomb proof line of knives at www.knifecenter.com.

CRKT has been pumping out the Brian Tighe designs hard and fast recently, and for good reason. Each and every model he comes up with is refreshingly different and once you get one in the hand, is hard to put down. The two newest to arrives through the KnifeCenter doors are the Tighe Coon and Tighe Dye folders. They both have flipper mechanisms, gray aluminum handles, button locks, and reasonably deep carry pocket clips. However, apart from these material similarities, they really are quite different designs. The Dye model is a single edged version of an Italian Stiletto, but the handle provides a much more stout feeling for more demanding cutting tasks. The Tighe Coon knife is ultra smooth opening with a slightly recurved drop point blade for better slicing performance. Both knives feature mirror polished AUS-8 blades and are built like tanks. Check out these Tighet new knives at www.knifecenter.com.
