Hardcore Hardware Australia in the House!

Hardcore Hardware Australia in the House!

The tides of the fixed blade knife are a-changing and Hardcore Hardware Australia is riding that wave and doing it very well. These days people are flocking to the larger, bulkier knives that have a multitude of uses beyond cutting. They want to be able to chop, pry, split, saw, dig, hammer, break, etc. from a single tool that they always have at their side. Much like Mercworx, Robson RPW, and Medford Knives, these are meant for battlefield use and hard use at that. All blades and tactical axes are made from Teflon coated D2 tool steel and measure at least 6 mm thick. This gives you peace of mind that Hardcore Hardware knives can handle what needs to be done, even if not intended to do so. Fit and finish is right up there with Spartan Blades when it comes to fixed knives, they are just perfectly ground, honed, and assembled to give you a tool that will last years.

Mil-Tac Jason Breeden Tactical Bali Tool

Mil-Tac Jason Breeden Tactical Bali Tool

There’s nothing like sitting around practicing your flipping skills with a quality butterfly knife. New from Mil-Tac, the Tactical Bali Tool designed by Jason Breeden is like nothing else you’ve ever flipped before. This butterfly knife does not have a locking latch but a pair of strong magnets in the handle that keep the knife open or closed without impeding flipping. There is a strong detent that keeps the knife closed so it will not open accidentally and once that initial force is overcome, the knife flips very smoothly. Breeden, also the designer of the Spyderco Captain, has a thing for multi-functional blades and his new Bali-Song does not disappoint. The base of the blade is a pry tool and the finger choil can double as a non-leather skull crusher but does not appear to be an able glass breaker. The 3-3/4″ N690Co blade is amazingly sharp from factory and is a simple shape with plenty of belly. The Tactical Bali Tool is a very cool new item, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
