New Pro-Tech Automatic Knives at SHOT Show 2019

KnifeCenter Reviews ArtisanCutlery’s Kinetic-Tool

Today, we’re going to be taking a look at the ArtisanCutlery Kinetic-Tool. This thing is a unique hybrid between a butterfly knife, an automatic knife, and a multi-tool. Let’s check it out!

 

 

The Kinetic-Tool is a combination of three different genres. Looking at it, you’d think it was just a butterfly knife – but when you open it, it’s actually a multi-tool. The blade on the Kinetic-Tool is 440C with a stonewashed finish, and it comes with a bottle opener, a couple of hex wrenches, a screwdriver on the tip, and you can even use the whole thing as a pry tool. It also features a 3” ruler on the spine.

 

 

That’s not all – in addition to a butterfly knife and a multi-tool, it’s actually an automatic. This is the first hybrid butterfly knife/automatic that we’ve ever seen, and it took us completely by surprise. We just love it. This is certainly going to make an impression when you pull it out at a party, whether you’re doing tricks, using it to open your beverage, or flipping that switch to pop the blade right open.

Great Combat Knives – Spyderco, Cold Steel, Boker & More!

Knife Center is kicking off the New Year with more awesome tactical knives and gear. We’ve got heavy-duty combat tomahawks from Maserin, Walter Brend-designed automatics from Pro-Tech, Ken Onion’s Bombastic collaboration with CRKT, and more on this list. Let us know your favorite knife featured here in the comments!

 

Maserin B.A.C. Combat Tomahawks

 

Optimized for extreme conditions, the Maserin Battle Axe Concept hawks are built for tactical use with multiple cutting edges, a spiked poll, and a striking point on the end of the handle. Made with quarter-inch thick slabs of D2 steel and bolted G10 scales, these Alessandro Zanin-designed tomahawks come with a form-fitting Kydex sheath and a plastic hard case for easy storage and transport.

 

Spyderco Hundred Pacer Folding Knife

 

The Hundred Pacer’s dramatic styling and textured G10 scales are inspired by a Taiwanese viper about to strike. The upswept blade is full-flat ground from premium CTS-XHP steel with slicing performance to spare. The layered G10 scales sport a snake-like pattern for a secure grip and come equipped with a sturdy liner lock and an ambidextrous wire clip.

 

 

Cold Steel Kobun Tanto Boot Knife

 

In the Japanese underworld, Kobun means “soldier,” and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more reliable soldier than this fixed blade boot knife. Like all Cold Steel tantos, the Kobun features a reinforced tip that makes it less prone to bending and chipping than your typical boot knife. The included Secure-Ex sheath is equipped with a sturdy clip, making it easy to be discreet with this agile warrior of a blade.

 

 

Pro-Tech Walter Brend Automatics

 

We have a bunch of new automatics from Pro-Tech featuring Walter Brend’s instantly recognizable blade profile. From dressy models to those with a rugged aesthetic, these knives are available in two sizes and come with some of the best automatic opening action on the market. If you need an EDC or a combat knife with blindingly fast action made from 154CM or layered Damascus steel, look no further.

 

 

Boker Plus Alan Folts LDE Dagger Closeout

 

The LDE is a great backup fixed blade that is ergonomic, shockingly lightweight, and features more than four inches of viciously efficient double-edged steel. The thumb groove on the front end of the scale further enhances the outstanding handling of this classic offensive knife pattern. Nearly any carry preference can be achieved thanks to a versatile leather sheath that allows either horizontal or versatile carry.

 

Bark River JX4 Bushbat Karambits

 

The JX4 Bushbat was created by Chris Tanner (PreparedMind101) to be a purpose-built, everyday carry knife that incorporates some bushcraft and combat karambit aspects into a single, unified design. It works well in both a forward and a reverse grip and you’ll have your choice of CPM-154 super steel or A2 tool steel, along with a wide variety of Micarta handles. Bark River’s famous convex grind ensures it has the strength to stand up to any task.

 

CRKT Ken Onion Bombastic Folding Knives

 

Ken Onion’s Bombastic folder pairs vintage styling elements with WWII-inspired textures. This isn’t your average everyday carry folder – it’s a show-stopping classic piece designed to mimic old-school military equipment. Not just a pretty face, this is still a hard working tool thanks to a sturdy frame lock, IKBS ball bearing pivot system, and finely ground spear point blade.

Knife Center’s Best-Selling Knives of 2018

Let’s take a look at some of 2018’s greatest knife hits from Knife Center. These are knives that you guys just couldn’t get enough of and we sold more of than any other knives. Here’s the rundown:

 

Spyderco SpyderHawk Salt Folding Knife

 

 

So, we’ve sold a lot of Spyderco knives this year, including a lot of the Para 3, but what really surprised us was the SpyderHawk Salt. This is one of our top-selling Spydercos of the year, and it has to be because of how distinctive it is. This folding knife would make a great dive knife because it features a fully serrated hawkbill blade with Spyderco’s H1 steel. That’s right, this knife is a part of Spyderco’s Salt Series, which means it’s virtually impervious to rust, making it great for use in marine environments.

The Newest 2018 Custom and Mid-Tech Knives

2018 may be coming to an end, but there are some industry-leading knife makers out there who are still putting out incredible custom and mid-tech knives before the New Year. Not only did we pick up some new automatics from Pro-Tech Knives, but we also have a custom tactical beard comb from none other than Tony Marfione that is a fidgeter’s dream. Let’s kick off the list with one of the coolest knife collaborations we’ve seen in a while…

 

Jake Hoback/Snecx Collaboration Buster

The design genius Tan from Snecx Design Lab is one of the most interesting makers in our industry as he has no formal background in knives. He was just a guy in search of the perfect knife three years ago who set out to make his own, never knowing that he would be collaborating with some of the best in the business so quickly. The Buster is amazing and a must-have in your collection – we’ll just leave it at that.
