Maxpedition Fixed Blade Knives

All of these Maxpedition fixed blade knives are extremely durable and would be a perfect addition to any pack. If you are hunting, fishing, camping, or just breaking down cardboard, these knives can do the job. At Maxpedition, they believe that the best knife is the knife you have on you and these fixed blades are very easy to carry with their lightweight designs and excellent Kydex sheaths. Maxpedition founder Tim Tang draws upon his passion for tactical knives and a decade of collaborations with the industry’s top custom knife makers to debut this design. They look like Mad Dog Knives and hopefully perform like them. See all 12 models at www.knifecenter.com.

GTI Series

GTI Series

We have carried White River Knives at the Knifecenter since 2012 and have been impressed with their products from the start. This company has access to very advanced machinery and experience in manufacturing precision tools that few companies, even large knife manufacturers, can match. They have come up with products that are really second to none we have seen in terms of quality of fit, finish, and materials. White River Knives has models that seem faintly similar to other knives from around the world because they take the best qualities of modern tactical knives, Finnish Puuko knives, various Fillet knives and put their own unique stamp of American design on it. Then they produce them out of the most modern and top quality materials. These are not bargain basement items, but quality items rarely are and White River Knives are all a good value. If you own a White River product, you have one of the finest knives produced anywhere and you should be able to own it, use it and pass it on to future generations just as you would other great knives of the world.

KnifeCenter started with this company very early in their existence. We recently increased our offering to include all of their models. These are great knives, made in Michigan to exacting standards by great folks that we are honored to work with.

White River Knives has collaborated with Justin Gingrich of GTI to produce this series of tactical/survival knives. Justin was a U.S. Army Ranger who served 10 years active duty. He is now a bladesmith and provides instruction in patrolling, demolitions, shooting and CQB techniques through Gingrich Tactical Innovations. This line of White River/GTI knives are designed by Justin to help you prevail in any situation. The smallest of the three knives with a 2.5″ S35VN blade.

DPx Gear HEST/F Limited Edition Folder

DPx Gear HEST/F Limited Edition Folder
This is a well made and well engineered folding pocketknife that will serve you well and last decades if not generations. The KnifeCenter likes the DPx products in general and this folder in particular. Each knife is numbered xxx/250 so you will know which one you received. The Niolox steel is well thought of in the knife collector community with a high wear resistance and sharpenability. The handle material is G10 – a common and effective material for its lightness and toughness, and titanium for the locking side. This is a common handle configuration in the knife industry and it really gives a great combination of utility and strength of lock. The titanium side of the handle has a piece that literally flexes over towards the blade so that, in the open position, it rests against the base of the blade locking it open. Simply moving it out of the way with your thumb allows the blade to close. It is a very strong lock when open and very easy to release to close. The pocket clip is designed for deep pocket carry. There is a pointed tungsten carbide glass breaking piece at the tail end of the handle as well. All in all, this is a real classic that you should consider adding to your collection or your pocket!

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.

Spartan Blades Akribis Folders

Here at the KnifeCenter, we strive to offer you the best edged tools available and we believe these Akribis folders fit that bill nicely. Spartan Blades is well known in the industry for their stout, well built fixed blade designs.

The Akribis is their first folding knife and we are very excited about this one. It features titanium handles, with a Rick Hinderer lock bar stabilizer, available in meteorite grey or flat dark earth and your choice of G10 or carbon fiber scales. The 3-1/2″ blade is made from S35VN stainless steel and also comes in your choice of a meteorite grey or black PVC blade coating.

This is a hard use, tactical folder that’s as at-home in your jeans or khakis as it is on your LBE. There’s no doubt you will be proud to show this knife off to your friends, check them all out at www.knifecenter.com.
