Customs & Mid-Techs: BLADE Show 2018 Edition! (Part Two)

Here we have the last batch of custom and mid-tech knives from our trip to BLADE Show – and we’re ending our haul with some pretty incredible designs from Jeremy Marsh, Tom Krein, and Tom Ploppert.

 

Jeremy Marsh Dressed Up MAC RoxStars

We were fortunate to get a few of Jeremy’s MAC RoxStars at BLADE that feature zirconium or zircu-ti pocket clips with hidden hardware for a little extra pizzazz. It’s one of the premier tactical folders on the market and available for a fraction of what a full custom would run you even though it feels just as nice.

 

George Muller Custom Knives

We managed to grab quite a selection of George’s offerings at the show, including a few well-priced EDC beauties. As with all of his knives, they combine top-notch materials together harmoniously to give these designs the look of true art knives.

 

Steven Kelly Custom Knives and Gear

Straws, Ti Sushi Sticks, Doohickeys, Screw-Its, fixed blades and heck, even a titanium spike – we’ve got some of nearly everything from the 2018 BLADE Show that Steven offers at the moment. We always love working with Steven and his wife Malissa, his constant companion at every show. Out of everything we got at BLADE, these Dragon Skin pattern milled Sushi Sticks might just be the coolest thing.

 

Spartan Blades Custom Special Edition SHFs

SHF Spartan Harsey Folder…quickly becoming THE knife to have from Spartan Blades. We have an awesome selection here of customized and special edition models, so you’re sure to find one for you or a very, very good friend.

 

Tom Krein Custom Splinter Flipper

Tom Krein Splinter = ideal EDC knife. It’s small, ergonomic and fast, which makes it fun to pull out of your pocket and use without calling attention to yourself. With CTS-XHP stainless steel and durable G10, it’s a user piece with class and definite curb appeal.

 

Al Warren Custom Fixed Blades

Alan C. Warren custom knives are functional works of edge art. He puts in the time and includes features that you don’t often see but will absolutely love, like silver soldering on the finger guard for a cleaner look or tapering the tang thickness of the blade at the butt end to save weight. They are specifically designed, manufactured, and honed for hunting tasks and deserve to be used. However, these are some of the most beautiful cutting tools we’ve ever carried so safe queen status is definitely not out of the realm of possibilities.

 

Les George/Allen Elishewitz Cerebrus Mid-Techs

Sometimes it’s difficult to see two makers’ design styles in a collaboration but that definitely is not the case with the Cerebrus from Les George and Allen Elishewitz. This large and in charge tactical flipper looks like an Elishewitz knife with a George finish and mid-tech build quality. We are making them even more enticing by taking $125 off, so if you want to get one into your hands at a great price…better act quick!

 

DPx Gear USA-Made HEST/F Urban Special Editions

The HEST/F Urban came about when Robert Young Pelton wanted to bring a knife to the EDC community that wasn’t just for knife people. It’s for all people who appreciate well-built tools that will last for generations. These three special edition models will appeal to anyone who wants something different than standard issue stonewashed/bead blasted.

 

We have new knives from EOS, RMJ Tactical, Kansei Matsuno, Chuck Richards, Matt Westberg, Rick Hinderer, balisongs from Les Voorhies and Nathan Dewey, and more Astio flippers from Todd Begg Knives. We get new Customs and Mid-Techs in every day, so please email us at support@knifecenter.com with any inquiries.

KnifeCenter is the original and largest online catalog of cutlery, and that includes the best automatic knives in the world.

Memorial Day

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!

Introducing The Knife Guide!

You know KnifeCenter is the largest and original catalog of cutlery, but did you also know we’ve been an educational resource since our launch in 1995? From day one, we’ve been an international hub with the latest knife news. One of our biggest goals was to not only be able to give you the largest collection of products, but also have all the information you’d ever need about knives and tools to make an informed purchase.

One thing we take very seriously is making it easier for knife newbies to enter the industry. That’s why we’ve created The Knife Guide – a series of videos that will cover a wide range of topics, from learning about knife parts to knife and tool maintenance (and everything in between).

We already have the first two installments ready and rolling on our YouTube channel!

 

The Knife Guide 01: Defining an EDC

This video will not only define an EDC, but will explain a little bit about folding knives, pocket knives, fixed blade knives, multi-tools, and some rules for choosing a knife or tool that’s the right fit for you. You can also check out all of the products that we used in the video, just in case any of them caught your eye or seemed like a good fit for a first-time knife or tool buyer.

 

The Knife Guide 02: What is a Folding Pocket Knife? 

In the second installment of the series, we dug into exactly what a folding knife is – the parts, how they work, what additions impact the cost of a folding knife, the different types of locking mechanisms and how they function, and some of the trademarks you’ll see in folding knives from well known manufacturers like Spyderco and Benchmade. We pulled out some great knives to help showcase these features, that way you’ll know our recommendations and can feel confident picking up any one of these folders.

 

We’ll be adding new videos weekly on YouTube and featuring the products on our website. We’re going to talk about what a fixed blade is, the best way to sharpen steel, the different blade shapes and what blade types are best for specific tasks, the different types of steel and how they compare, the best knife handle materials, and more. We’re also eager to see what type of content you’d like to see in this series – nothing is off limits! Be sure to head to our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to let us know what you think and your recommendations for what you’d like featured in this series next!

 

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday Season

We wish all of the American public a happy Thanksgiving and everyone a great holiday season!

The KnifeCenter will be sending out some really great email deals with thousands of discounted products. Sign up now, if you haven’t already. We are closed on Thanksgiving day so that our employees can enjoy the day with their families, but the emails will go out and you can order from your computer as much as you like- we encourage it!
We love our industry, business, customers and products. This time of year is incredibly busy, but we all work as hard as it takes to get your packages to you safely and to your tree for Christmas. Check out our Gift Guide for some great gift ideas and keep checking in with us for new specials and bargains for you and your family and friends and please, stay safe this season. Remember: life is short and you can’t have too many knives!

Lots Of Specials! – Here’s a Breakdown on the Great Deals

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

Another Great reason to buy from the KnifeCenter- knifeREWARDS!

Our new knifeREWARDS program is being well received by our customers.  Remember our double points part of it! This really gives you an amazing amount of money back towards future purchases and is well worth considering.

The whole idea is that we wanted to come up with a way to give back to our customers who have stayed with us loyally through the years and also, of course, incentivize everyone to buy more. We think this system is doing it all. We keep all your orders grouped with your email and you can check any time on the point level and what you can get for redeeming them. We offer double points on a lot of items so you get even a better deal. Then we have a VIP system so you will get a free gift at the end of the year for all the items you bought that year. Since we’re starting late in 2014, we will total the rest of this year’s with next year’s purchases. If you spend enough through the year you can get a free Chris Reeve Sebenza! There is also a Zero Tolerance available and a Swiss Army Super Tinker Knife. We’re excited by this new system and we hope you will be as well. See it all HERE!

Wounded Warrior Fund

The KnifeCenter supports several charities and we invite you to donate as well- to the best of your ability and inclination. You can see our philanthropy page with the various charities we support HERE. $2000 is being sent to the Wounded Warrior Project from the KnifeCenter of the Internet for the percentage of sales promotion we ran on Memorial Day weekend plus some additional to express our gratitude to our service people.
