Pohl Force Knives- New Tactical Knives from Deitmar Pohl
The Pohl Force combat knives have been very popular in Europe for some time. Dietmar Pohl has been a knife designer for some time and we have sold many that were made by Boker. This line of combat knives is manufactured by Lionsteel in Italy or in Taiwan. The Taiwan models use 440C steel for the blades and they are affordable. The Italian models use D2 for the blades and have a three dimensional texture for the G10 handles. These knives are really well made, both the Taiwanese and Italian models. Each is checked by Dietmar who also signs it’s certificate. The packaging is amazing with the fixed blades coming in a zipper pouch and the folders in a nice case. These are all large knives with thick blades and will serve you well. He always includes things like a sticker, certificate and instructions.

Gil Hibben Hibben Sub Hilt Assault Bowie
This is a great sub-hilt combat knife from United Cutlery and designed by the infamous Gil Hibben. It has a Micarta handle that really fits your hand nicely- at least it fits mine which is a medium size. The price is exceptional especially when you compare it to the Cold Steel Black Bear model, although that one is of a much finer quality, made in Japan with San Mai steel. The look is similar, but the similarity doesn’t extend much further. Smith and Wesson came out with a monster subhilt recently that even has this one beat on price, although it doesn’t have Gil Hibben‘s sense of design. This Gil Hibben one is affordable and has a nice, leather sheath included. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
