Benchmade Torrent™ Assisted Openers Coming In- Now some with black blades
Benchmade’s new offerings still trickling in- we just got the black blade models along with other versions of the new Torrent.
This is a nice knife!
Contoured G10 handles and a polished, deep pocket clip and a textured handle spacer looking sort of like file work make this a stylish item. It has a simplicity to it that is appealing. Blade is flat (sabre) ground.

Columbia River Lift Off™ Linerlock Folders
This is a creative new opening system from Columbia River Knife and Tool. Originally developed by Depok Chopra, a knife distributor, this system utilizes the thumb stud for starting the assisted opening system. Just press down on the thumb stud and start the opening process and the blade just flies open. They have a stylish look, too!

Kershaw Ken Onion Pack Rat Assisted Opener
Kershaw and Ken Onion keep coming up with great designs. This American made assisted opener has all the right stuff- great materials with a Sandvik 14C28N stainless blade, G10 handles with stainless liners, a thick liner for its liner locking system and a pronounced flipper built into the blade. The size is medium with a 3-1/4″ blade and the shape is awesome. The upswept blade that seems to call out for work. The RatPack is a great addition to the Kershaw lineup.
The first batch we got in has “1 of 500 First Production” on the blade. We cannot guarantee you will get one of these unless you call us to look at the knife you are ordering.

Kershaw Shallot Assisted Opening Folder 3.5″ Composite 14CZN/ZDP189 Steel Blade
The Kershaw Shallot is a great knife. It is a large, usable size and has all the great Ken Onion assisted opening features. We now have several permutations of this model and this one has the hardest steel. The Damascus models may look prettier to some and they are a super high quality product, but this ZDP-189 steel that is on the cutting edge of these composite blades is super hard and will hold an edge a really long time. Surprisingly, it is not too difficult to resharpen them, either.

Kershaw says, “This quality chromium steel provides excellent hardness, as well as corrosion and wear resistance.” We, at the KnifeCenter, haven’t tested the material ourselves and so can only pass on the information we have gathered.

Here are the SPECS: Continue Reading
