If you’re looking for a decently made, economical all around camp knife that’s rugged, well built, as well as visually appealing – look no further than the Garuda by Condor Tool & Knife. Designed by Joe Flowers, an outdoorsman from North Carolina, this knife is tough enough to do it all. This is an economically priced, large fixed blade. Don’t look for perfection in every curve, but it is well made and sturdy. The 5″ 1075 high carbon steel blade is epoxy powder coated to assist in corrosion resistance and full tang for added strength. The Micarta handles are oversized for use with gloves or for those with larger hands and it is nicely curved and contoured to fit the hand excellently. It comes with a very sharp convex grind and ballistic nylon sheath that can be attached to your belt or MOLLE gear no problem.

Zero Tolerance has become well known in the knife community for making wide blades of quality materials and near-unbreakable toughness. People around the world have been calling for a slimmer, lighter knife built to the same stout standards and ZT responded excellently with the model 0780. Loosely based off the ZT0160 combat fixed blade, it incorporates features from different Kershaw and ZT knives to make for a useful and ergonomic design. It’s got a solid skull crusher on the end, nicely textured G10 handle scales, and a four-position deep carry pocket clip for secure carry. The 3.5″ S30V blade has sharp, functional jimping on the spine and can be opened with either the flipper mechanism or the tapered thumbstuds that Kershaw uses on the Blur models. The knife has an entirely black tactical look but at 4.0 ounces and very slim in the closed position, it is definitely the right size to have on your person at all times.

The design my be quirky and unfamiliar to most but in no way does that mean that it’s an inferior tool. In the case of the new Zero Tolerance 0750 assisted folder, the unique blade and handle shape actually make it a superior knife for many different applications. Designed to be especially useful for draw cuts and in the reverse grip, the talon shaped S30V blade is an absolutely ferocious cutter. The reverse curved handle is surprisingly comfortable to use normally but it really shines in the reverse grip, locking into the hand very tightly. This makes this knife a superb last ditch tactical defense weapon for more powerful slash cuts and you can find it at www.knifecenter.com.

If you’ve ever wondered what the ideal tactical “go-to-war” combat knife may be, the Harsey family from Spartan Blades might just be the answer. The Hunter and Model II are classic, functional designs with some hi-tech, new-age features. The full-tang S35VN blades are 3/16″ thick which provides excellent torsional strength and are available in your choice of color. The canvas micarta scales are 3D machined and contoured to give you a firm grip while also offering superb ergonomics in the forward and reverse grips. Many people believe a fixed knife is only as good as it’s sheath and if that’s the case, this is where the Spartan Harsey blades excel. You have the choice between a MOLLE compatible Cordura sheath or one made from Kydex, both lock in the knife extra securely and provide an ample array of carry options. These knives are based loosely off “The Yarborough” fixed blade designed by William Harsey, which is the knife presented to each cadet of the US Army Special Forces Qualification Course upon their graduation. You can see these works of edged art at www.knifecenter.com.
