The Intellect is aptly named, because it’s one of the smartest EDC choices in Kershaw’s line-up. It’s small enough to disappear in the pocket, thanks to the deep-carry clip, while at the same time feeling hefty enough to take on the day. If you want a knife with a sense of style that you can still put to work, the Intellect smartly blurs the line between a gentleman’s folder and a true workhorse.

We just uncovered a real bounty of USA-made Fox Knives that we couldn’t be more excited about. Boasting 154CM stainless steel blades, some rugged FRN handles with excellent ergonomics, and a solid range of options, these folders are just about the dream workhorse EDC.
All four models have the same exact pistol-grip style FRN handle, which is about 4.6″ closed, 0.4″ thick, and has some pretty stellar ergonomics. There’s a curved back that nests in your palm, a pronounced index finger indent, and then you even get a choil and some heavy duty jimping for when you want to choke up on the knife. Overall just a very nice feeling in the hand. The FRN comes in your choice of orange, blue, grey, and black.
When it comes to choices though, it’s all about the blades. There are actually four different models here, and each one has its own blade shape. You’ve got the Forza with a basic drop point, the Drago in a Wharncliffe, the Amico in a sheepsfoot, and the Vitale in a sheepsfoot with a combo edge. All four blade styles are 3.5” long and manufactured from 154CM stainless steel, which will provide some solid edge retention. The blade is held in place with a sturdy lockback that holds strong but isn’t too tough to disengage.
All-in-all, these four models from Fox Knives are the perfect balance of quality materials, efficiency of design, and affordable price-point. Anybody looking for a USA-made folder that’s going to stand up to hard use and abuse – look no further. Click here to learn more about these knives.
We thought the Vanquish was one of the more functional real-world-using karambits when we got them in last year. Now that they are on closeout pricing, we think they are one of the best deals going for a great self-defense knife that is also a great EDC! Click here to learn more about this knife.
We all love Damascus, but most of us usually don’t love the price point. The folks at Spyderco took notice of this and created an all-new, limited edition Delica 4, outfitting the iconic folder with a gorgeous Damascus blade while still maintaining the competitive pricing that has made the model so popular. Their Damascus Endura flew off the shelves back in February, and we’ve been eagerly anticipating this Delica ever since. Click here to learn more about this knife.
We have been waiting oh-so-patiently for the US-Assist ever since it was announced late last summer. Just when we were about to give up hope, they showed up. Man, were they worth the wait… The US-Assist has one of the fastest actions we have seen in an assist, firing with the speed of an automatic. And, as the name implies, they are made in the USA!
