Ken Onion Swindle – An honestly Great Deal

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

Boker Plus Rambler Fixed 2-3/4″ Blade

Boker Plus Rambler
Boker Plus Rambler Fixed 2-3/4″ Blade
A very cool little knife from Boker Plus. It was designed by an Austrian knifemaker and is really very unique. It is small and meant to be a backup knife in most situations. The sheath is a belt sheath and not a neck sheath as would be expected for a knife of this size. Looks are deceiving from the image because this knife could scale up perfectly to be a very useful camping or even kitchen knife, but at the size at which it has been produced, it is a backup- belt knife. I really like it, especially the design and materials, but you have to have a need or desire for a knife of this diminutive size. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com

Buck Smidgen Small Neck Knife with Deluxe Sheath, Lanyard and Carabiner
Buck knives had a lot of luck with the Hartsook neck knife. It is small and easy to carry and well designed and reasonably priced. They went and designed another tiny neck knife but are able to sell it at an even lower price. The steel is different, but the sheath system is awesome. It has a carabiner attached that has a bottle opener built in. We like this small knife and the price makes it a natural.
Here is Buck’s information on it: Continue Reading
