The Mad Blacksmith Arrives at the KnifeCenter

The Mad Blacksmith Arrives at the KnifeCenter

 

The Mad Blacksmith, better known as Jared West, has a distinct style unlike any other. From his knife designs to his other far out products, you will find a cool new item you know you need but never thought would be a reality. The City Dweller Pen Lanyards are just that sort of item. The idea is to disguise the fact that you have a knife by attaching a lanyard with a 2-1/2″ piece resembling a pen. The execution is the key here and these well done products function exactly as designed. Tie the 550 paracord through the lanyard hole, clip it in the pocket and it’ll be nearly impossible to tell you’ve got a knife on you at all. The Mad Blacksmith stands up for your rights to carry a knife without unwarranted attention or accusation. Check out these bold new lanyards at www.knifecenter.com.

Boker Plus Squail – Very Nice for the Price

Boker Plue Squail - Very Nice for the Price

 

Very Spyderco Vallotton and Starmate-esque, the new Boker Plus Squail is a large tactical folder with serious style. The designer, Charles Marlowe, is known for combining function with elegance in all his designs, whether they be tactical or utility in nature. The Squail features a large 4″ 440C blade that is beautifully stonewashed and has a nice-sized thumb hole for easy actuation. The handles are linen Micarta paired with matte finished titanium bolsters for a refined looking and feeling knife. The jimping on the spine is very sharp for excellent purchase and the liner lock, though not grooved like it is in the picture, does lock the knife up with no play whatsoever. This is another awesome piece from Boker Plus and their decision to go with production versions of custom knife designs is paying off with some really excellent products. Keep your eyes peeled for more new designs and check out this handsome new tactical knife at www.knifecenter.com.

Spyderco Ulize – the German Police Model

Spyderco Ulize - the German Police Model

Slim, sleek, long, and natural are the first things that come to mind when handling the new Spyderco Ulize. Very similar in looks, size, and shape to one of the original Spyderco models, the C07 Police, this Ulrich Hennicke design is more than fit for duty. The Ulize was specifically designed for use by the German police as a functional utility tool as well as devastating cutter with its 4.12″ re-curved VG-10 blade. The handle melds into the hand extremely well and puts the blade in an excellent cutting position in multiple grips. Proceeds of this knife will benefit officers killed in the line of action and the four-position clip, backlock, and trademark round-hole make this pocket knife completely ambidextrous and great for any user.

Camillus Folding Beast is Just That!

It’s rare when you handle a knife for the first time and you’re either speechless or all you can utter is, Dang! That’s why Camillus has saved you time and effort and just put the thought into your head; this thing is a Beast! Measuring 9-3/4″ overall with a 3-3/4″ VG-10 blade, this new tactical folder from Camillus is meant for the tough and rugged field of battle. The handle is large of course and the straight lines, reminiscent of a Sebenza, are definitely comfortable in a variety of grips. You can use the flipper mechanism or overlarge thumb slot/hole for opening and the action is extremely smooth. Check out this modified American tanto blade design at www.knifecenter.com.
