We have carried White River Knives at the KnifeCenter since 2012 when we first saw them at BLADE show in Atlanta. We were impressed with really their products due to the top-of-the-line materials and high degree of manufacturing quality. White River uses some of the most advanced machinery in the industry and their experience in manufacturing precision tools is matched by only a few manufacturers. They have come up with products that are really second to none in design features and are some of the best we have seen in terms of quality of fit, finish, and materials. They continue to impress with the new 11″ Flexible Fillet Knife available at www.knifecenter.com.
What a comfortable handle the new Bushcraft Field Knife from Ontario has. It’s great for long periods of use when your cutting, splitting, whittling, creating fuzz, etc. A simple, strong blade design and a comfortable handle is really all you need in a knife. This comes with a durable nylon belt sheath that does its job well and has an accessory pouch for the included fire steel and striker. And the best thing about this knife is it’s made in the USA.
We have carried White River Knives at the Knifecenter since 2012 and have been impressed with their products from the start. This company has access to very advanced machinery and experience in manufacturing precision tools that few companies, even large knife manufacturers, can match. They have come up with products that are really second to none we have seen in terms of quality of fit, finish, and materials. White River Knives has models that seem faintly similar to other knives from around the world because they take the best qualities of modern tactical knives, Finnish Puuko knives, various Fillet knives and put their own unique stamp of American design on it. Then they produce them out of the most modern and top quality materials. These are not bargain basement items, but quality items rarely are and White River Knives are all a good value. If you own a White River product, you have one of the finest knives produced anywhere and you should be able to own it, use it and pass it on to future generations just as you would other great knives of the world.
KnifeCenter started with this company very early in their existence. We recently increased our offering to include all of their models. These are great knives, made in Michigan to exacting standards by great folks that we are honored to work with.

The first of the Sebenza 25 models to feature inlays is finally out and excitement doesn’t come close to describing how I’m feeling. I’ve known for some time now what the inlays would look like but wasn’t quite sure how’d they’d actually feel once I got them in hand. Well, I’m here to say that they’re a definite improvement over those on the 21, to say the very least. They’re contoured to fit the shape of your hand more precisely than those squared off ones on the 21. The benefit of inlays beside the aesthetic beauty is quite practical – they prevent much of the wear on the Titanium and not just because they cover it. Inlays are actually the only parts of the knife that will touch the table top when you place it down. Slide it across the table, the durable inlays will take the punishment, leaving your Titanium scratch free. In addition to the inlays, this Micarta model comes with dual Silver thumb lugs (won’t show wear like the blue lugs) and backspacer, which makes for a very beautiful knife. The 25 boasts improved ergonomics, larger and more durable internal parts, a redesigned thumb ramp, a new “Large Hollow” blade grind, and now you can add better inlays to the list of improvements over the 21. These are absolutely stunning knives built to the quality Chris Reeve is famous for, check out this awesome new knife at www.knifecenter.com
The Cold Steel 1917 Frontier Bowie may not be the prettiest piece in the collection but it will be one of the hardest working, that’s for sure. It’s a 1/4″ thick piece of nicely tempered 1055 carbon steel so you know it will stand up to any kind of use. The handle is beautiful rosewood and you’re prevented from sliding forward onto the 12-1/4″ blade by an over-sized “S” guard which can also be used as a place to rest your thumb during fine cutting tasks. The sheath is an excellent, quality design made of leather and it provides very adequate retention on the knife. This is a great value for such a ferocious cutter, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
