Spyderco Native with Carpenter Steel Blade and Brown Handle
We think the Native is one of Spyderco’s best designs. It is medium sized, has a great blade shape and the handle is thin so it’s easy to carry. We thought you might want one with the great Carpenter CTS-XHP steel and so we got this model for you. Not only that, but we are offering it at an initial discount of only $79.95! These blog posts stay up here, so don’t blame us if, when you see this post, it’s already back to our full discount price of $89.95. These are a Sprint Run meaning there are only but so many made. They will run out so grab one if you’re interested!

Spyderco Hungarian Design Folding Knife
Spyderco’s ethnic series has amazed a lot of us through the last several years. They have taken designs – some ancient – and modernized them in their own inimitable fashion, into modern Spyderco models. Included among them are the Jot Singh Khalsa, Bob Lum Chinese Models, the Ed Schempp Navaja, and the Nilakka Folding Puukko among others. This model, however, is really exceptional. The eastern European flavor is reflected in the stylized handle which fits an average sized hand very well. The dual extensions on the highly polished bolster serve as a thumb rest on top and a guard on the inside of the handle. The materials seem really well thought out a with nicely polished and well formed G10 handle along with a top quality steel blade that is what Spyderco calls a full flat grind- meaning flat from the top of the blade to the top of the final bevel that goes to the cutting edge. Although all parts of the handle, bolster and pocket clip are highly polished, the blade is left with a satin finish. This is a great knife, made in Taiwan and presented at Spyderco’s high level of quality. Collector’s will want to have one of these so that, in years to come, they will be able to take this out and amaze others. The liner lock works very well and is buried just enough to avoid accidental release. These swing open easily, lock securely and close conveniently. We see this latest entry from Spyderco Knives as a real winner, even though the price is not low. You get what you pay for- at least in this case, and in our opinion.

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.
Cold Steel Code4 Heavy Duty Folding Pocket Knives
Cold Steel Knives create the best and most reasonably priced knives for various applications. No one does a better job of it. They wanted to create an easy-to-carry heavy duty folding pocket knife for law enforcement and military that wouldn’t break the bank. They have the production done in great factories and they use great materials and they create the absolute best designs. Like I said- nobody does it better! The Code4 series are flatter than the plastic handle models like the Voyagers or the G10 handle folding knives like the RECON series. They are super strong and feature a good stainless blade. We applaud Cold Steel for really doing it right! You can see the entire series which is now all available, at www.knifecenter.com

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
