Is it a tactical combat knife or a wilderness blade? That’s for you to decide. The Combat Kukri from KA-BAR is an extremely versatile knife built to handle the toughest tasks with ease. Fitted with an 8-1/2″ curved blade, the Kukri is well designed for chopping and hacking or for draw cuts and slashes. The Kraton handle provides a good, hand-filling grip and also helps to reduce shock absorbed by the hand. The pommel at the butt end adds to the knife’s capabilities, allowing for light hammering and smashing duties. For a knife measuring in at just over 13″, the best thing about the Combat Kukri is it’s weight. At 13.4 ounces, you get enough weight behind it to get the job done but the balance of the knife makes it feel much lighter and it’s very very maneuverable. Whether you’re a combat professional or weekend camper, try out a Combat Kukri for yourself and find out just how great this knife really is. Best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA and available at www.knifecenter.com.

The new Timberline Bush Guide Hatchet and Skinner set features thick spines, and wear resistant materials.

New Survivor Knife from Dajo
The Dajo Survivor knife is a full, if minimalist, survival kit at a great price. The sharp, wide blade can be used for everything from shaving a branch for tinder to skinning caught animals for food. The notch on the back of the blade is designed to be used as a striker for the Swedish FireSteel that is included, and the cutouts in the handle are designed to allow for the blade to be used as the head of a spear, while at the same time lowering how much weight the kit ads to your pack. Rounding off the kit is the survival whistle, which can be used in an emergency to draw search teams to your location without using up your voice and energy.

New, Extra Thick Bush Knives from Ontario!
The RD-6 and Afghan Bush Signature fixed blade series from Ontario features styles similar to the Ontario Ranger Bush series with one important difference: The blades are extra thick. These blades are 0.375″ thick S7 steel, making them quite a bit heavier than your typical knife. However, the thickness of the blade makes these great for unusual jobs. These are great for everyday camp jobs, such as splitting firewood, and they also make a great emergency axe or hammer in a pinch, while still performing ably as heavy duty knives.
The differences between the RD-6 and the Afghan are that the RD-6 has a 6″ clip point blade in a Bowie knife style and a pommel for hammering, while the Afghan has a somewhat shorter 4.438″ drop point blade and no pommel. Both come in either orange G10 handles with a black Micarta accent, or black Micarta handles with an orange G10 accent.
These are extremely limited, and every blade is numbered. So get yours today, before they are all gone!
