The Columbia River Knife and Tool M-16 folding combat knife is one of the best selling knives of all time.

Ken Onion is famous for the assisted opening knives he developed for Kershaw over a ten year period. Now that he has moved on from Kershaw to Columbia River, he also seems to have moved on from assisted openers. Not to worry, fans of fast opening knives, his new CRKT Eros folder opens just as fast-if not quicker. The secret to Ken’s new speedy folders is the bearings that the blade floats on-the official name is IKBS-that allow it to open like its on roller skates! CRKT is so proud of these knives that they are serial numbering them.

Columbia River Ed Halligan’s Slip K.I.S.S.
For many years now the KISS series from Ed Halligan and Columbia River Knife & Tool have been enjoyed by knife nuts and gadget guys. Now they have a model that can truly be called a gents knife. It is a slip joint – which basically means it does not have a lock, instead the blade is held open by the tension of a backspring. There is a traditional nail nick instead of the more contemporary thumbstud. Finally, there are abalone-like composite injected handles overlaying a stainless steel frame that has been engine turned for a look that really pops.

Columbia River Knife and Tool offers a lot of innovative pocketknife products and gadgets. Flavio Ikoma is the designer behind the hottest technology top reach the knife industry in several years- the IKBS ball bearing system that makes the pivot of the knife literally roll on ball bearings. The system has been adopted by a slew of custom knife makers and now, by one of the largest of the production knife companies. The SAMPA is the first model in mass production of this great system and it is spectacular. The knife really flies open running strictly on the ball bearings and it doesn’t need the assistance of a spring in any way.

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.
