ONE TOUGH KNIFE THAT’S EVER-READY FOR WORK, UTILITY, AND EVERY DAY CARRYING. Get your hands on a Whirlwind and you won’t want to let go. This one will be your constant companion whether you’re on the jobsite, working in the garage, or doing chores around the house. The first thing you’ll notice is how this big handful of a knife nestles into your palm. The ergonomic design and the tough, glass-filled nylon handle scales provide a grip that’s comfortable, secure, and ensures that you’re always in control of the cut. Next, of course, you’ll want to try out the razor-sharp blade. Just push on the thumbstud and—twack!—the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism moves the blade out of the handle and it locks securely into place, ready for use. The blade is a classic drop-point, perfect for handling a wide range of tasks—pretty much anything you care to throw at it. The blade steel is high-performance 14C28N. Developed in a partnership between Kershaw and Sandvik Steel, it offers excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, and edge retention. In fact, Sandvik considers this the highest-performance steel available that can still be fine-blanked. We would have to agree. But the only way you’re going to know for yourself is to get a Whirlwind of your own at www.knifecenter.com.
We went to the BLADE Show a couple weekends ago and picked up some amazing one-of-a-kind pieces. We were able to forge relationships with a number of new custom and mid-tech designers with some of the best products and reputations in the industry. From Mikkel Willumsen, David Curtiss, and Butch Ball, to Tim Britton, Anthony Griffin, and Duane Dwyer of Strider Knives, we’ve got some special pieces in here now and hopefully more to come. Most of these are one-off pieces but if you would like a specific model in a special configuration, please contact us via customer service support and we will get into contact with you to hash out the details. We’re very excited to bring these custom pieces to you, hope you are as well. Stay sharp! www.knifecenter.com

The DPx Gear Hostile Environment Fighting Tool (HEFT) 4, might just be the most balanced knife that DPx offers. It’s discrete enough to keep a low profile, but it’s large enough to handle jobs that would compromise most four-inch knives. The 3.94″ blade is high-performance, German-made Lohmann Niolox stainless steel and is cryo-hardened to a Rockwell Hardness near 60. Lohmann Niolox steel is prized for its ability to hold up to abuse and to retain a cutting edge and this knife has proven that. It’s held a durable cutting edge through repeated hard use on a variety of wood, bamboo, cardboard, and other mediums. It’s survived neglectful treatment, tons of batoning, and is thick enough to give you reassurance at the tip when drilling holes. Niolox combines the best qualities of stainless and high-carbon steels to provide you with a superior hard use tool. There is a storage compartment hidden within the G10 handle designed for small items like fishing line, hooks or water-purification tablets. The MOLLE compatible nylon sheath is durable, compact, and features a quality Velcro pouch the perfect size for a fire starter and small sharpener. The HEFT 4 was designed by Tommaso Rumici with input from Robert Young Pelton and is manufactured by LionSteel of Maniago, Northern Italy. See it at www.knifecenter.com.
The DPx Gear HEAT folder is just the right amount blade that you need in a compact, pocket friendly package. Compared to the super popular HEST/F they’ve dropped the blade size to just over 2-1/4″ but did not sacrifice the great thickness leaving the business end of a sword grind that snaps quickly into action. They eliminated the hex drive slot for a typical round lanyard hole and the aluminum back spacer for completely flow-through design with barrel spacers but kept that confident, beefy feel that HEST/F folder owners love. The blade is Sleipner steel, and from experience with the MilSpec HEST folder, is an awesome user steel that is used in commercial meat processing machines to give you a cutting edge that lasts well past what you might be used to. Finally they back it with the same no nonsense, no questions asked warranty that Robert Young Pelton demands. Check out this new hard use EDC blade at www.knifecenter.com.
