Every once in a while, our friends over at Kershaw Knives come out with something new that generates a buzz around our office. When we first laid eyes on the new Kurai, we knew that they had come up with something really interesting.
The Kurai is a gentleman’s folder with style to spare, with carbon fiber-patterned aluminum handle scales. It doesn’t sacrifice substance either-it’s heavy for its size (in a good way), and its 2.5″ 8Cr13MoV blade with Titanium Carbo-Nitride coating provides great performance and corrosion resistance at an extremely reasonable price. Opening is smooth and easy with the thumb stud, and the linerlock is nice and solid. The Kurai makes a great gift, too! Check them out today at www.knifecenter.com!
New from Boker Plus, meet the ultra-cool Nano: it’s bright, versatile, and it wants to be your new best friend! Its small size is perfect for EDC duties at 4-3/4″ overall, and its stout 1-7/8″ 440C stainless steel blade can slice through pretty much anything you throw at it-plus it takes a very sharp edge. Bright lime-green Zytel scales make it hard to forget if you set it down, and it fits comfortably in all but the largest hands.
The Nano sports an easy-to-use frame lock, and jimping on the spine just adds to its grip and versatility. It may be small, but it’ll be a loyal companion for years. Check them out today at www.knifecenter.com!
Here’s the word from Boker Plus:

Zero Tolerance 0350 Composite Knives
When we heard that Zero Tolerance was going to be offering their awesome 0350 in ZDP-189 steel, we were blown away. Then, they announced a composite version with an S30V spine and a ZDP-189 cutting edge, and blew us away again.
Offered in a satin finish, these gorgeous knives allow the user to clearly view the delineation between the two steels. ZDP-189 is one of the highest-performing stainless steels in the knife industry today, prized for its hardness and edge retention capabilities-and results in a WICKEDLY sharp knife (as my index finger discovered while writing this blog entry).
Designed by Ken Onion and manufactured in the USA, the composite 0350s offer the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opener, allowing smooth one-handed opening. These knives sport textured G-10 handles an adjustable quad-carry pocket clip. They’re available in both plain and partially-serrated edges. Individually numbered, these limited-edition knives are going fast, so pick one up (carefully!) at www.knifecenter.com!

Spyderco c153GP Des Horn Folder
Recently arrived from Spyderco, we’re proud to offer the incredible new Des Horn Folder! Manufactured from CPM-s30V high-carbon stainless steel and furrowed Micarta handles, the resulting knife is surprisingly lightweight for its size, yet offers robust construction and edge retention.
Designed by South African dentist Des Horn, this awesome knife is his first collaboration with Spyderco. The blade includes elements of both a spear point and Wharncliffe shape, and is hollow ground to a razor sharp edge. The Des Horn Folder sports a Michael Walker Liner Lock and a deep-pocket wire clip for tip-down, right hand carry; yet it’s so light, you hardly even feel it in your pocket! Take a look at www.knifecenter.com-and remember, always brush and floss!

SOG Visionary II Folding Pocketknife
SOG is a company we hold in high esteem here at the Knifecenter, and the spectacular Visionary II is no different! This stellar knife boasts SOG’s proprietary ambidextrous Arc-Lock™ for fast, easy one-handed opening, as well as a thumb stud. The 3.75″ blade in premium VG-10 steel is powder-coated for low reflectivity, and the knife’s slim profile is less that 1/2″ wide. The Visionary line also showcases SOG’s “low-carry” clip that keeps the knife hidden when clipped to a pocket. Take a look at the Visionary II at www.knifecenter.com!

New CardSharp Credit Card Knife from Iain Sinclair
These finally arrived after a 7 month wait!
There are many pocketknives and multitools designed in a credit card shape, and supposedly meant to be kept in your wallet. But most of these knives are a little bit too bulky to actually fit in the credit card pockets of your wallet.
Not so with the Iain Sinclair CardSharp. The CardSharp utilizes a creative and unique folding method to allow the knife to maintain a much smaller profile. This pocket knife easily fits into the same space as a couple of credit cards. The secret is the almost-one-piece design; the knife lacks the liners and pins that add to the thickness and weight of a normal pocket knife. Additionally, once fully deployed, there are no concerns about the knife closing when you do not want it to.
At such a low price, this knife is a steal. Buy it because it is unique, keep it because it is a great last chance knife. It also makes a great stocking stuffer!
