Designed by the survival experts over at ESEE Knives, Mike Perrin and Jeff Randall, and produced by Blue Ridge Knives, the Avispa is a hybrid between the Ontario RAT handle combined with the blade style of the Zancudo folder. Compared to the Zancudo, it features a larger, more capable 3.5″ blade for better cutting power. Features a nice, slim design with a full-size blade in stonewash or black. Handles are textured FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon) in the front with a stainless steel back. The framelock lockup feels solid and the blade easily glides open using the dual-thumb stubs. The Avispa will surely appeal to many with its 4-way pocket clip making it 100% ambidextrous. Overall, this is a great choice for an EDC for anyone looking for a high quality, full-size folder not looking to break the bank. See all models at www.knifecenter.com.
I was pleasantly surprised when unboxing the new Bad Blood Cross Fire Tanto. This reminds me alot of some other knives by popular manufacturers for a fraction of the price. The fit and finish done on the textured G10 handles are just exceptional. The grooved handles feel formed-fitted and feel very natural and secure while the flipper makes it very easy to quickly deploy your blade. Most of the knives I carry are set tip-down (personal preference) so may take a little getting used to the tip-up only pocket clip. However, with the design and value of this knife, it’s definitely not a deal breaker. This is a knife you can count on day in and day out. For more info to www.knifecenter.com.
The design on the handle of the Kizer Ki4423 is a work of art…literally. The designer (Kim Ning) incorporated two important Ancient Chinese Symbols: “Ling Zi (Pheasant Tail)” and “Hui ZhuanLun (Gyroscopewheel)” inspired by a treasured Chinese sword. It has probably the smoothest opening action of any knife I’ve ever seen, probably because it is made entirely by hand. The fit, finish, buttery smooth action, razor sharpness, and materials are exactly what you look for in a knife twice this price. The new 4423 from Kizer is a knife you must handle to appreciate just how nice it really is, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
