The ultra durable, heavy duty Rat Model 1 has always been hindered in popularity by it’s five once carry weight and large tactical looking 3.6″ blade. For those who have long awaited a more carryable knife from Ontario with the same excellent design as the Model 1, you’ll thoroughly enjoy it’s new smaller brother – the Rat Model 2. This 7″ overall EDC folder comes in at only 2.7 ounces while boasting a 3″ AUS-8 blade available with or without serrations or a black blade coating. It’s a much thinner profile as well making for a much more easily carried knife that you can still depend on for the most serious cutting tasks. Check out the new Ontario Rat 2’s with pink or black FRN handles at www.knifecenter.com.
Introducing the first series of kitchen knives from the beloved American outdoor tool company ESEE. The Series 1 Knives were designed by Ethan Becker, co-author of Joy of Cooking Cookbook and father of Becker Knife & Tool. They’ve been used, modified, and the designs honed in Ethan’s personal kitchen for over five years before they were ready to hit production. The Series 1 Knives are very ergonomic, well built, and scary sharp straight out of the box. Built up to true ESEE quality with a no questions asked lifetime warranty, these new kitchen knives can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

The ESEE IZULA is one of the most popular knives to come out of ESEE Knives, formerly Rat Cutlery. The IZULA II takes everything that is great about the IZULA neck knife, and adds a 1/2″ longer handle. It also comes standard with Micarta handle slabs, which were a popular add-on for the original IZULA.
Although the original IZULA was definitely usable, the extra leverage that the IZULA II‘s extended handle provides makes the knife much more comfortable in large hands, and allows a greater amount of control of the knife in any hands. The Micarta handles improved the grip of the original IZULA, and are a welcome standard addition to the IZULA II. However, for those who would prefer the skeleton handles, or who would prefer to make their own custom handles, the Micarta handles can be easily removed.
The IZULA II is available as just the knife and sheath, or with a minimal survival kit. This kit includes a length of paracord, an emergency whistle, a fire flint, and various parts for additional carry methods, including a snap hook and a belt clip for the sheath.
