The new SALT SAVER from Spyderco Knives. The Spyderco SALT series of lockbacks features an amazing steel- it doesn’t rust! Not only does the company claim this amazing fact, but our personal experience has shown it to be true. It also will hold a good edge for a reasonable time. The SALT series is available with a variety of blade styles and they just released a hollow ground, rescue shaped one called the SALT SAVER. It has a fully serrated 3-1/8″ blade.
Boker has released the CHADMPT, the newest design from Chad Los Banos which is a series of neck knives with plastic handles. The blade shape is noteworthy and the material of the handle is also. We like the “pseudo tanto” shape because it maintains the enhanced tip strength you get from a tanto but still has some belly (curve) on the edge. The simple plastic neck sheath includes a metal chain. The handle has 2 types of plastic and a great feel although the handle is not full size.
We have tactical writing pens from 2 different companies! Designed to be easy to carry and effective as a defensive weapon, these are also decent writing instruments.
Boron and Gold coated Chive from Kershaw Knives.
The Chive is one of the classics of the knife industry. A tiny, flat folder with fast assisted opening action that is easy to carry in the bottom of your pocket or clipped on. This version, with a polished black Boron coating and gold trim is elegant and tasteful. It was first issued years ago when it also had a gold thumb stud which is slightly missed in the new version. The Boron coating is supposed to be very hard and should protect the knife from scratches.
Designed by Ken Onion. Manufactured by Kershaw Knives in Oregon, USA.
The Chive clip point blade is of 420 stainless steel with a hollow grind. Stock thickness is 0.090" and blade length is just under 2 inches (4.9cm). Closed length is Continue Reading

They allow you to put a razor edge on any straight edge knife. The Knife Center is proud to offer a great selection of fine Japanese water stones including a new selection brought in from Japan..
SOG knives has released the VULCAN, their production ARC-Lock folder. This is a full size knife with a thick stock VG10 stainless blade and steel liners in the handle to beef it up. It has a ‘flipper” to allow for easy and fast opening, although it doesn’t have (or need) the assisted feature found on their FLASH models.
Here are the SPECS: Continue Reading
A new stainless steel arrives: SG2. The Kershaw Blur KS1670BRBRNSG2 is the first knife (to our knowledge) to be offered with a SG2 (Super Gold 2) steel blade! The blade is super hard with a laminate of softer steel on the outside.
The Blur series has long been highly desired from Kershaw Knives. It is a speedy assisted opener designed by Ken Onion. Having been produced for several years, the Blur is a dependable every day carry knife and we think this model is a winner with this special steel as well as the brown color of the handle.
