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!

 

 

 

Memorial Day

Today, 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!

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.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We will be working a half day on New Years Eve and are closed on January 1, 2013 We’ll be back in full swing on Thursday, January 2.
We want to wish all of our customers and shoppers a happy and healthy holiday season. Here at the KnifeCenter, we have been working long hours trying to play Santa’s elves and not the Grinch this Christmas so everyone can get their toys in time. The hard work has paid off, we believe, and there are very few problem packages this year.
The web site has been going through some really significant upgrades and we hope it is still serving you well. We appreciate your feedback and we will use it to improve the site.
Thanks again: The team at The KnifeCenter of the InterNet

Hardcore Hardware Australia in the House!

Hardcore Hardware Australia in the House!

The tides of the fixed blade knife are a-changing and Hardcore Hardware Australia is riding that wave and doing it very well. These days people are flocking to the larger, bulkier knives that have a multitude of uses beyond cutting. They want to be able to chop, pry, split, saw, dig, hammer, break, etc. from a single tool that they always have at their side. Much like Mercworx, Robson RPW, and Medford Knives, these are meant for battlefield use and hard use at that. All blades and tactical axes are made from Teflon coated D2 tool steel and measure at least 6 mm thick. This gives you peace of mind that Hardcore Hardware knives can handle what needs to be done, even if not intended to do so. Fit and finish is right up there with Spartan Blades when it comes to fixed knives, they are just perfectly ground, honed, and assembled to give you a tool that will last years. Check out this newest bomb proof line of knives at www.knifecenter.com.
