Spyderco Native with Carpenter Steel Blade and Brown Handle

Spyderco Brown NativeSpyderco Native with Carpenter  Steel Blade and Brown Handle
We think the Native is one of Spyderco’s best designs. It is medium sized, has a great blade shape and the handle is thin so it’s easy to carry. We thought you might want one with the great Carpenter CTS-XHP steel and so we got this model for you.  Not only that, but we are offering it at an initial discount of only $79.95! These blog posts stay up here, so don’t blame us if, when you see this post, it’s already back to our full discount price of $89.95. These are a Sprint Run meaning there are only but so many made. They will run out so grab one if you’re interested!

Spyderco Hungarian Design Folding Knife

Spyderco Ethnic Series Pocket KnivesSpyderco Hungarian Design Folding Knife
Spyderco’s ethnic series has amazed a lot of us through the last several years. They have taken designs – some ancient – and modernized them in their own inimitable fashion, into modern Spyderco models. Included among them are the Jot Singh Khalsa, Bob Lum Chinese Models, the Ed Schempp Navaja, and the Nilakka Folding Puukko among others. This model, however, is really exceptional. The eastern European flavor is reflected in the stylized handle which fits an average sized hand very well. The dual extensions on the highly polished bolster serve as a thumb rest on top and a guard on the inside of the handle. The materials seem really well thought out a with nicely polished and well formed G10 handle along with a top quality steel blade that is what Spyderco calls a full flat grind- meaning flat from the top of the blade to the top of the final bevel that goes to the cutting edge. Although all parts of the handle, bolster and pocket clip are highly polished, the blade is left with a satin finish. This is a great knife, made in Taiwan and presented at Spyderco’s high level of quality. Collector’s will want to have one of these so that, in years to come, they will be able to take this out and amaze others. The liner lock works very well and is buried just enough to avoid accidental release. These swing open easily, lock securely and close conveniently. We see this latest entry from Spyderco Knives as a real winner, even though the price is not low. You get what you pay for- at least in this case, and in our opinion.

Kershaw RJ Matrin Scrambler SpeedSafe Folder

Kershaw RJ Matrin Scrambler SpeedSafe Folder

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!

Henckels-4star-Blog

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
