The Latest Edition of the Knife Center Catalog is Here!

With over 1,800 pages containing more than 700 brands, the 2019 KnifeCenter Printed Catalog is the ultimate reference for all the greatest cutlery and accessories, offering thousands of products that haven’t even made it on to our website yet.

 

Customers have time and again told us that this is the best thing we sell. You’ll get hours of enjoyment as you leaf through our sections on the hottest knife brands, including Spyderco, CRKT, Cold Steel, Zero Tolerance, Kershaw, and hundreds more. And there are more than just knives. From one piece multi-tools to sharpeners, camping and survival gear, shaving supplies, and more, it is all here in this definitive guide that no enthusiast should be without.

The best part about this catalog is the element of discovery. While shopping on the web is direct and efficient, it is often hard to stumble upon new and exciting things. With every turn of these pages, you’ll find awesome gear that you didn’t even know you wanted.

From Swiss Army Knives to machetes to kitchen gear, give us a call or visit our website for availability and the latest prices, which come in significantly lower than the full retail prices listed in the catalog.

You might be asking why an internet company like Knife Center wants you to have this paper catalog, but the answer is simple: these pages represent a knife industry bible and there is no other resource like it. Nowhere else will you find as many knives, accessories, and cool gear all collected into one, easy to read place.

Christmas Season Message

We want to wish everyone a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.

It has been a great season and we are still working as hard as we can to get everyone’s packages accounted for. I feel that business is about more than just the money and exchange of goods, but it is also about the interaction we have with our customers and each other. The KnifeCenter fulfillment crew is second to none in their hard work and concern for our customers and our company.

We are all very fortunate and I want to thank everyone who has been a part of our business world. We all make it what it is – energizing and fulfilling. I wish the best to all of our friends around the world!

Sincerely,
Howard Korn: owner and founder of the KnifeCenter of the Internet – The original and BEST! web based catalog of cutlery

The Last of Spyderco’s Discontinued Knives

We’ve had a few whirlwind weeks since Spyderco announced their annual list of discontinued knives, and we’ve got only a few models left that will never be produced again. These (now super collectible) knives have been severely discounted, so check out the last of what we have to offer before they’re all gone for good!

 

 

 

Spyderco Chaparral Folding Knife 2.79” CTS-XHP Blade, Blue Stepped Titanium Handles

 

 

This model is one of three Chaparral folders we have left, and this one is particularly eye-catching because of the unique blue handles. After a complex initial machining process, the stepped titanium scales are color anodized to give them a brilliant blue hue, and then they’re machined again to make the alternating layers that create the unique pattern.

KnifeCenter’s Favorite ZT Knives

Zero Tolerance Knives is a relatively new brand that first debuted in 2006 with products that were specifically designed for tactical applications. They saw a need in the industry for American-made knives that were built for heavy-duty combat use and could meet the needs of military and law enforcement professionals, so they stepped up with beefy folders like the 0200 and award-winning models like the 0500. While ZT may not have as long of a history as its sister brand Kershaw, they’ve made up for lost time by racking up several awards for their collaborations with famous knifemakers like Rick Hinderer and Dmitry Sinkevich.

ZT is dedicated to the highest caliber manufacturing processes available, and they don’t shy away from taking risks with their designs. We’ve picked what we feel are some of the best knives from ZT’s lineup, starting with one of the best EDCs in their arsenal…

 

Zero Tolerance Hinderer 0562 Flipper

 

 

ZT is known to frequently collaborate with knifemaker Rick Hinderer to create some pretty incredible knives, including the 0562. This folder takes Rick’s exclusive “slicer” grind and adds all the best hallmarks of modern knife construction, easily making this one of the best titanium frame lock flippers on the market. The lockbar features a replaceable hardened steel insert that interfaces with the tang of the blade, and that steel-on-steel interaction is going to last longer than steel on titanium and help prevent lock stick as the knife is broken in. You also don’t have to worry about overextending the lockbar, as there’s a disc on the back that prevents it. The cherry on the cake is the S35VN steel, which can be sharpened to hair-popping levels.

The Best Flashlights on the Market

Sometimes it feels like we focus so much on the bladed portion of our EDC that we take for granted all of the awesome gear that should be added to any rotation – and that includes a capable flashlight. Dropping a ton of cash on a flashlight may seem silly, but its utility can’t be debated. A flashlight is a lot like a knife, you never know when you may need one, but it’s always best to have one on hand.

But first, let’s address the obvious: what the heck is a lumen? To put it into perspective, a 60 watt incandescent light bulb is equal to about 900 lumens. While a watt is technically the amount of energy it takes to power a light, it’s the lumen count that describes how bright it shines. Here’s our ranking:

Now that we’re all much wiser about a flashlight’s lumenosity (get it?), there are many different styles of flashlights – and one size doesn’t fit all. We’ve broken these flashlights down by their specific utility so you’ll be able to find the right fit for you.

Top Five Best ESEE Knives

Try this: whip out your phone and text the biggest outdoor and survival knife enthusiast you know and ask them this – “who makes the best survival knives in the business?” Chances are, they’re going to tell you that ESEE ranks pretty high (if not the highest). Since 1997, Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin have been changing the game when it comes to the wilderness industry. Their goal is to offer realistic tools that are designed for people that are going to use and abuse them, which is why their brand has been so successful. Their ‘no questions asked’ warranty doesn’t hurt, either – you’re essentially covered for everything but rust. If you break it, they will replace it.  

Even in the company’s philosophy, it clearly states that one of the most important aspects of the business is that ESEE won’t provide a piece of gear that hasn’t been tested in the real world. How seriously do they take that mission? Considering that ESEE’s founders also run an adventure and training company that regularly does jungle survival courses in the Peruvian Amazon, we’d say – very. Anyone who regularly handles outdoor knives knows the power of 1095 carbon, and ESEE is able to get more out of that steel than any other production knife company thanks to their famous heat treatment.    

You know the drill by now – as the leading cutlery retailer, we’re overqualified to cherry-pick the best ESEE knives for you. Let’s begin with the knife that started it all…

 

ESEE-3

 

Best Application

General purpose field and utility knife that’s perfect for bug-out bags or survival kits

Why We Love It

What the ESEE 3 lacks in size, it more than makes up for in strength. It’s the very first knife that Jeff and Mike debuted at ESEE, essentially making it their flagship knife. The National Tactical Officers Association gave it a 4.77 out of 5, cementing its reputation as a favorite with law enforcement and military teams.

Why You’ll Love It

Like we said before, you’re going to get more out of that 1095 carbon steel than you will from any other knife company. This knife is comfortable and easy to carry thanks to its size and versatile sheath. Because this is such a popular knife model, we have over 40 iterations of the ESEE 3. From combo blades to Venom Green finishes to highly visible orange scales, we can pretty much guarantee there’s a model out there for even the most eccentric knife user.
