New Benchmade Barrage Model 586

New Benchmade Barrage Model 586

The Barrage was Benchmade’s first ever AXIS lock model to incorporate an assisted opening mechanism and it’s continued to be a very popular design, even four years later. The model 581 was introduced in 2011 with the same specifications as the model 580 but with some nice material upgrades. The FRN handle was changed to G10 with stainless steel bolsters and the blade steel was upgraded to M390 super steel, providing a much better using steel while losing little of the stainless qualities 154CM steel provides. Now, in 2013 you can get the Mini Barrage with the same upgrades as the model 581 – the new 586. They’ve got 2.91″ drop point blades with either a nice stonewashed finish or the black BK2 coating. You can’t go wrong with any Benchmade design but if assisted openers are your thing, then the new model 586 is a superior EDC choice. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

Spyderco Ulize – the German Police Model

Spyderco Ulize - the German Police Model

Slim, sleek, long, and natural are the first things that come to mind when handling the new Spyderco Ulize. Very similar in looks, size, and shape to one of the original Spyderco models, the C07 Police, this Ulrich Hennicke design is more than fit for duty. The Ulize was specifically designed for use by the German police as a functional utility tool as well as devastating cutter with its 4.12″ re-curved VG-10 blade. The handle melds into the hand extremely well and puts the blade in an excellent cutting position in multiple grips. Proceeds of this knife will benefit officers killed in the line of action and the four-position clip, backlock, and trademark round-hole make this pocket knife completely ambidextrous and great for any user.
