Here’s a knife that truly needs no introduction. The Ken Onion Blur is one of the best assisted-opening EDC-worthy folders on the market period – let alone in this price range. Last year Kershaw started putting out camo variants of some of their classic knives, like the Leek, and we instantly fell in love with the way that style suits the Blur’s utilitarian frame.

The small, lightweight Spyderco ARK (or “Always Ready Knife”) was designed by US Army combat veteran John Shirley to function as the perfect self-defense neck-knife – no matter what conditions the user finds themselves in. Click here to learn more about this knife.
Knife-fighting expert Jim Wagner designed the Böker Plus Urban Survival pen-size knife to serve as the perfect back-up EDC for either self-defense or general day-to-day use. The small, slender frame is easy to conceal, and its unique shape enables extremely secure and comfortable use. http://kcoti.com/2k1baUK
Knife designer Ron Lake is often called “the father of the modern knife,” and he quite literally wrote the book on knife making. With that pedigree, it’s no surprise that his Lake design for CRKT is a capable little knife that comfortably bridges the gap between gentleman’s folder and hard-use EDC thanks to its ergonomic frame and patented L.B.S. safety lock. The included multi-tool features a strap cutter, field sharpener, and bottle opener, making this kit one exceptional value! http://kcoti.com/2k0lfnd
The Bear Song VI is a fascinating new design from Bear OPS – a balisong you can really put to work. Building off their already successful line of butterfly knives, this new model incorporates a 1095 carbon steel blade, T6 aluminum handles, and Torx screw pivots into an overbuilt balisong that flips like a dream but handles like a utility knife. http://kcoti.com/2jqhqnP

The Kershaw Shuffle is the kind of knife that was tailor-made for casual carry, and with a price tag under ten bucks you can put it through its paces completely guilt-free.

Gayle Bradley and Spyderco have knocked it out of the park with these two 2017 collaborations. Their new Junction fixed blade sports a clean, ergonomic design, and its blade is PSF27 – a high-performance tool steel that Bradley favors in his custom knives for its edge retention properties. If folding knives are more your speed, the Advocate is a production version of Bradley’s first ever flipper which simply exudes class and delivers high performance – but would you expect any less from Spyderco? http://kcoti.com/2iuCRrM
An assisted flipper and two multi-tools for less than twenty bucks? It may sound too good to be true, but this time it’s not! http://kcoti.com/2ioYAMP
