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.

Columbia River’s Tribute to the Godfather of the Guild

Columbia River Centofante Tribute Knife
Columbia River’s Tribute to the Godfather of the Guild

Frank Centofante started making pocket knives in 1970. A year later he became a member of the Knifemaker’s Guild, and has since served on the board of directors for 20 years, including 8 years as the President of the Knifemaker’s Guild. His prowess at knifemaking has resulted in his being called the Godfather of the Knifemakers Guild. Unfortunately, Frank Centofante passed away in September of 2009. Before he passed, however, he designed one last collaborative effort with Columbia River. In honor of his memory, Columbia River chose to call his final collaborative knife the Centofante Tribute.

The Centofante Tribute comes in two different models. The Tribute has a 3.125″ blade, while the Tribute 2 has a 2.875″ blade. The design is simplicity and elegance. The slender spear point blade is opened with a classic nail nick, and is complemented by a red wood patterned Micarta handle. The lockback locking mechanism allows the handle of the knife the be extremely thin, just a little bit over a quarter of an inch at its thickest. The result is a thin, light blade that would go well with a suit, but is also capable of anything you might need your every day carry knife for. All of this for under $30.00.
