DPX Orange HEST 2.0 with Free Book
This is the best HEST 2.0 we have seen! DPX is the brainchild of Robert Pelton, an adventure author and the products are really first rate. The knives are made in Italy by Lionsteel with D2 tool steel blades and a great locking system with a safety feature built in. So, the design is great and the quality is superb. Then, with this model which is exclusively sold by KnifeCenter, you get an autographed copy of Pelton’s book, “The Adventurist.” This knife is limited in quantity.

Ken Onion Swindle – An honestly Great Deal
Columbia River’s models that are designed by world famous knifemaker Ken Onion have a great reputation for innovation and quality. This latest release, the “Swindle” is a really innovative pocketknife. The handles are super slim and smooth allowing for easy pocket carrying. The IKBS system of blade pivot is very slick and the opening is just silky smooth. The overall shape is very unique and artsy and the hollow grind is so deep that the edge is really hair thin. We like this folder a lot. The steel is basic and we wish it was a little (or a lot!) more premium, but, as it is, this is a great every day carry knife. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com

The Cricket has been produced by Spyderco since 1994 but only recently has it begun to receive the recognition it really deserves. It’s an excellent utility knife with a small re-curved hawkbill blade that absolutely tears through material with ease. New for 2012, the beautiful Nishijin Glass Fiber Handled Cricket transforms this knife from a nice back-up EDC blade to a full on, sweet Gentlemen’s knife. The width of the handle design and a nice finger choil really give you a positive three finger grip for easy pull cuts. The thin framelock provides solid lock-up and keeps the profile slim in your pocket. The Cricket is fully adjustable with torx screws and for many doubles as a more funactional money clip due to the robust pocket clip it has set up for tip down carry. It’s an extremely functional little knife and for it’s size, is unmatched in cutting power. You can find this excellent design from Spyderco at www.knifecenter.com.

Boker Anso 67 Folding Knife
Another gem from the creative mind of Jens Anso. Jens is one of the hottest designers in the knife business and Boker Knives has gotten a few great models from him. This one is a remarkable folding knife with one textured G10 side and on titanium framelock side. Similar to the way some Strider knives and Emerson superCQC7 knives were made, these are workhorse tools. Made in Germany, this knife is top quality.
Here is some more information from Boker:
New Boker-Plus Titanium Framed Chad Los Banos Subcom!
The Chad Los Banos series from Boker has been a huge success. The size, and the thought that went into the design, have given it appeal to the tactical as well as every-day-carry knife customer. To celebrate the success of the series, Boker has introduced a CNC milled titanium version. The look is very cool, and the price is quite reasonable. We love it, and we think that you will too.

Bokers Danish Designed Folding Knife-the Haddock
Every so often something comes to us that catches our eye. Something a little different with a little different take on things. Boker knives in Germany has released something that fits this bill with this new Haddock frame lock folding knife designed by a Danish knifemaker. It’s noticeably lighter than most folders of its size. It feels a little better in the hand. The blade shape is different and very utilitarian. The blade is also a very thick stock, hollowed down to a razor edge – and it is sharp. The blade finish isn’t pretty- just a flat, stone washed gray, but this is a functioning folding knife. It is extremely well made.
We like this knife. There is no thumb stud or flipper and so you pinch the top of the blade with thumb and finger and flip the handle over or use the nail slot. The action is very good and adjustable with the torx screw. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com

Columbia River Crawford The Natural™ Assisted Folders

Chris Reeve Large Sebenzas with Devon Thomas Stainless Ladder pattern Damascus
Chris Reeve Sebenzas have been call the finest “mid-tech” folders ever made. “Mid-tech” refers to knives that are not quite custom because more than one person has a hand in making them and they are not really production knives because there is not a massive assembly line process involved. If you combine that with the incomparable Devon Thomas stainless Damascus steel that is in these blades as well as the great, unique handle designs, you have a collectible that will hold its value forever! Of course, Chris Reeve stands behind his products always and will always recondition one of his knives if you send it in to him.
A few words about the Damascus in these folders: Devon Thomas is recognized as, perhaps, the finest Damascus maker in the world. Most Damascus is made from 2 types of carbon steel, but Chris decided to put super premium stainless Damascus on these. The pattern is swirled tightly to give a ladder pattern and the swirls are so tight that the blade has a chatoyance or play of light like a tigers eye stone.
