Benchmade Adamas Series from Shane Sibert
Benchmade Knives has specialized in combat tactical knives, pretty much, from day 1. Their original Emerson models built the company. The Sibert MPR has been a popular combat folder since it was introduced last year. This new series of ADAMAS folders takes it to the full size folder class. These feature a D2 tool steel blade which is very hard and these are coated to avoid any corrosion. If you are our and about and need a full size folding knife, this may be the one you will want. It goes head to head with Strider and other heavy combat knives and is still affordable and available (at least so far).

Art of War Economical Combat Knives
Art of War is a new line of well designed combat knives. They have learned from all the combat knives that have preceded them and put together a great selection of both fixed blades and folders. They all feature top quality 440C stainless steel blades with black titanium nitride coating for abrasion resistance and G10 handles. So, the materials are all 1st rate. Then the designs seem to be time tested classics with double guards built in to the folders as well as fixed blades and all the goodies one expects with modern combat knives. Sheaths on fixed blades have a notch cut out to allow for cord cutting with the knife still sheathed. Slots on the sheath allow for multiple carry methods. Handles are grooved for better grip. Then there are lots of other features including a limited lifetime warranty. One of the best features, however, is the incredible pricing they are offering. You can get a lot of knife for a really reasonable investment. Sometimes you don’t want to carry a $200 knife- you want something that, if you lose, you can order another without blinking.
