Blackhawk Hornet II designed by Keating
Remember the Keating Hornet from Masters of Defense? They still offer the automatic version made in the USA. Blackhawk bought the Masters of Defense company years ago and have tried to keep their best models available while offering many new models. The Hornet II is similar to the old model in size and style, but has some interesting differences. The Hornet II is a more modern combat folder. The handles are textured G10 with full liners on both sides. The blade steel is AUS8A stainless.

Norton Rolling Wheel Knife Sharpener
This is a great product! 1 7/8″ diameter. Hand-held rolling wheel knife sharpener has two slots with proper built-in angle to sharpen each side of the blade. No lubricants needed. Compact and easy to use. Made in Brazil.
We have tried this little item around the warehouse here at the KnifeCenter- and we like it! It does a reasonable job of quickly setting the angle on both sides of a blade. Use it gingerly and try to work the entire edge and carefully keep it lodged in the groove to keep the angle consistent. One of the nice features is that it doesn’t mess up the sides of the blades with scratches and just works on the sharpened bevel. Generally we follow it with a quick stropping- just drag the blade pretty much flat on some leather or even canvas or blue jean material to take the extra steel off the edge on both sides.
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.

Big heavy pens are cool – especially if they are also designed to double as a go-anywhere self-defense tool. The new stainless steel version of the Benchmade tactical pen certainly qualifies in all the above categories. Plus it is beautiful and writes quite nicely. The only question is … blue or black ink?
