9/11 – We Will Never Forget!
9/11 was a very important day here at the KnifeCenter, as it was for all Americans. Our business was located within the Washington, DC area at the time. After the second plane hit, we closed our doors and sent all employees home to be with their families to get ready for whatever the future would bring. The last plane was headed for us and no one knew where it would hit until the plane was forced down in Pennsylvania. We mourn along with all Americans for the fellow citizens that died on that day. Of course, most of us who witnessed the catastrophe have our own memories of that time and the following days. I remember the days following as a unique period in our history when the citizens of this country were truly united with each other. If we try to remember that time, perhaps this country could feel more united again. We are all much more the same than we are different.
We got through that catastrophe and we can get through a lot more.
God Bless America and all Americans.
This weekend, and Sunday in particular, we remember our fallen heroes. While we are busy with our daily work, it is easy to lose sight of those putting their lives on the line every day for our safety, but this day and weekend gives us that opportunity. So thank you, American service personnel. We are extremely grateful that our country is safe and secure so we can go about our daily business without worry. The sacrifices that you give, while we are not able to fully understand all of them, are appreciated and honored. We salute you!
We wish all of the American public a happy Thanksgiving and everyone a great holiday season!

Thomas Jefferson said, “Every man has two countries – his own and France.” We mourn with our French neighbors over the barbaric murders perpetrated by psychotic criminals.
We have faith in the resilience of the people of Paris and other victims of terrorism around the world. Words are easy. We will do what we can.
As always, the SHOT Show – that is the Shooting Hunting Outdoors Trade show, in Las Vegas was a great get together of industry and retail players and this year didn’t disappoint. Here are the trends we have seen most clearly. Upgraded steel is really the major theme. Cold Steel is upgrading their whole line and that is the major reason at we have so many of the older ones at such great prices so please don’t delay in getting any models you want at the ridiculously low prices they are at. Quartermaster has a smaller Roper model that is lighter and smaller and really a usable version of a great knife. It has lots of great new features. Then they have some new models titled after the Back to the Future movies. More details later.
Folders with replaceable blades were all over either using the same standard staple blades that Havelon uses or a proprietary one like Outdoor Edge. Cast hatchets were popular from many vendors including SOG Gerber and others. Kershaw has some really extraordinary models all made in the USA. they are priced right too and we will eagerly await their arrival. ZT models coming out are really smaller than they have been and really will fill the niche for people who want a carry knife for their pants pocket. Benchmade is solidifying their hunting products with more fixed blades as well as a new lock system. Look for all the new items at the KnifeCenter first! You can preorder from us and be the first to get them yourselves.
Great Gear from KnifeCenter!
We have some very nice shirts and hats for you with the unique Knifecenter logo. The hats are made by Adams and the nicest ones we could find. They’re heavy, have great natural type colors and the embroidery came out perfect. The shirts are by American Apparel and many people feel these are also about the best you can get. They have a thin feel and are very smooth and finely made. They’re US made and still reasonably priced. We get different designs through the years, so grab one of these if it suites you. They make a great gift!
Ok, we have a heck of a lot of specials going on at the same time. It can get confusing. Which ones are really cheap and which ones are just everyday sale items. I’m here to give you the inside scoop. First, let me point out that the reason for these lists is that we have so many items – the list is really enormous and so many of them are really great deals. We just want to help everyone get to what they are looking for and it’s not always easy. For instance: We just posted the “80 Items up to 80% Off- greatest sale ever” promotion. That’s a pretty big claim. Well, these items are hand picked as good items that we just happen to have too many on the shelf. We are willing to make just a bit on them to lighten up our inventory level for the end of the year. We are all in a buying mode right now and, as I say repeatedly, you have to make hay while the sun shines.
Then we have the flat rate shipping through today. Well, this is just a great deal.
We are running the Medford Sale that gives you some really solidly built knives at a reasonable price. Medford likes to price their product way Continue Reading
