Today we’re taking a look at some of our favorite Case knives of all time. When it comes to classic American pocket knives there is no company out there more closely tied with this tradition than Case. They’re primarily known for their non-locking slipjoint pocket knives but they also make modern folders and even fixed blades as well. However, we’re gonna focus on their best folding knives and we’ll show you a few of their classic patterns to illustrate.Continue Reading
The Endura and Delica are two of Spyderco’s most enduring models. Each is currently in their fourth generation and better than ever. Now joining this lineup is the brand-new Endela, which sits right between these two in terms of size. Not too big, and not too small, it perfectly bridges the gap to create a brand new EDC knife, and it just feels right.Continue Reading

Today we’re gonna be looking at two kings of the ultra-light pocket knife scene. The Benchmade Bugout versus the Spyderco Para 3 Lightweight. Despite the difference in price we can see these two knives being cross shopped very easily as they sport some of the same elements to appeal to folks looking for high-performance cutting in a package that won’t weigh you down.
I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, there was nothing cooler than a Swiss Army Knife. There’s always been something just so appealing about having all those gadgets in a pocket knife form that even now when I’m older, never goes out of style.
When people think of Swiss Army Knives, the image of the iconic red-handled pocket knife is probably what comes to mind, but they do a lot more than just that. Since Victorinox has been around since the late 1800s, there are innumerable models to choose from at this point, but we’ve narrowed it down to the Top 10 that we think represents the best of what this hallowed brand has to offer.
The Enrique Pena Signature Series Pena-Songs are the mid-tech versions of Pena’s full-on customs and they are one hundred percent American-made. They come in at about half the price of the custom versions but the fit, finish and attention to detail is unimpeachable. All the final assembly is performed by Pena himself to provide great hand-tuned flipping action. If you’ve been craving one of Enrique’s custom Balisongs but can’t swing the payment, these will be right up your alley. The delta in quality between the two is very narrow and you really aren’t giving up much by owning a Signature Series Pena-Song.
The Bailout is a tactical spinoff of Benchmade’s popular ultralight Bugout Series, but a few tweaks have been made to emphasize even more strength than that original model. It’s designed for operators that need a solid tool that doesn’t take up a lot of space or weight, but it works just as well for folks that need a tactically oriented EDC or backup blade without the overbuilt bulk that many tactical knives can fall victim to.
