Rockstead- The Finest Knives in the World- and the Prettiest!
We are proud to offer some of the very finest knives produced anywhere. The Rockstead knives from Japan are so perfectly made with the finest of materials and fit and finish that they are prized by collectors around the world. Availability is limited, so please consider these carefully if they are within your budget. We will have a lot more information about these after the weekend, but we wanted to get them up on the site before we went home!
Every once in a while at the Knifecenter, we are lucky enough to add a new brand to our family. SCAR Blades, a company started by two brothers and based in Idaho Falls, Idaho, produces custom hand-built blades for the outdoors, law enforcement, and military communities.
Most SCAR knives are made from 1095 high-carbon steel, prized worldwide for its sharpness and edge retention. Furthermore, they are heat treated only along the sharpened edge, allowing the “softer” steel of the spine to absorb impacts and reduce fatigue. Most SCAR blades offer full-tang construction and phenolic handles, and feature Kydex sheaths custom-fitted to each knife. Backed by a lifetime warranty, these are rugged knives, designed for the toughest tasks around. Made in the USA. Check out the new additions at www.knifecenter.com!

These are beautiful knives. The Pinkerton Customs are custom made fixed blades from Dirk Pinkerton. They’re simple but really different and advanced in their design. The blades are very heavy and the handles are short but adequate. We like these knives and feel that they’re great values.

Chris Reeve Sebenzas are legendary. Many consider them to be the finest “mid-tech” folding knives made. “Mid-tech” refers to products that are no mass produced but are still produced at a higher rate than standard production knives. There is a lot of hand work and care in each piece. These models that just came in were hand picked by us at this year’s Blade Show. Each is a one of a kind creation. They are remarkable folders. Lots of Damascus blades and great anodized images on the handles. You can see them all at: www.knifecenter.com
Columbia River Crawford The Natural™ Assisted Folders

Boker Leo-Damascus® V Damascus Steel Blade with 600 Layers
Boker damascus blade knives have been really popular for many years here at the Knife Center. Boker does the best job of any production knife company. Now, they are entering the “custom world.” Boker Leo-Damascus is incredible. With steel taken from the gun barrel of a military tank, the blade has 600 layers of steel in a beautiful pattern. This fixed blade is awesome and shows Boker’s latest tendency towards custom level products from Germany. These are highly collectible and limited in production. Very few are allocated to the US market.
