5.11 Tactical is a well known gear and clothing supplier for law enforcement, military, and fire/rescue professionals. What’s not as well known in the tactical community is their extensive tool, flashlight, and knife offerings. New for 2012, 5.11 Tactical has introduced the Double Duty series of folding knives which are great all around utility tools. The Karambit folder is a more tactical design with a 3-3/4″ black coated main blade and 1-1/2″ utility spike, perfect for punching holes. The Rescue folder has a carbide glass breaker, a 3-3/4″ sheepsfoot blade for safer cutting, and a 1-1/2″ serrated blade for fine detail work. The FRN handles are very ergonomic in the saber and reverse grips, and both blades on each knife lock into position so they won’t close on your fingers during hard use. The 5.11 Tactical Doubly Duty series may not be your typical knife designs but they sure will get the job done again and again. See them both at www.knifecenter.com.

Limited Edition Rat Cutlery DPx HEST Knife 3-1/8 inch Carbon Steel Blade, Removable Micarta Slabs
*Update- This item is no longer available. We hope to see more of the standard DPx HEST knives soon.
The HEST knife sold so quickly when it first appeared at the Knifecenter that we never had to clear a spot for it on the shelves. Whether it is the RAT name, reasonable price, or due to its lightweight, multi-featured design, it appeals to backpackers, survivalists, weekend warriors, collectors, and scouts. Though the standard HEST is currently out of stock, fortune smiled upon us when the Limited Edition HEST appeared at our door. Only 250 of these serialized knives have been produced, and for a limited time one of these collectibles can be yours. Act now because at only $10 over the cost of the original HEST, these unique Pelton designed knives won’t be here long.
Gerber Hinderer CLS™ in Black
The Gerber Hinderer has been one of the most successful rescue knives we have had. It is so well designed that all other rescue folders sort of pale in comparison. Now Gerber has released a black, combat version with a partially serrated blade instead of the fully serrated on the original. This will be a hit for years.
