This week, it’s a return to form with a future classic from Spyderco and an irresistably cool Ontario budget folder, plus a video overview from David C. Andersen of all the greatest new knives, big and small. Read on and let’s dive in!
This week it’s a mix of old- and new-school knifemaking, with an Axis-style crossbar locking knife from Gerber at an unbeatable price, a modern flipper from Civivi with a nod to traditional knifemaking, the latest Reate collaboration, and a celebratory slipjoint from Maserin that turns up the charm. Let’s take a look!
Read on to see the best new knives that hit our shelves in the last week, including a hot new USA-made Spyderco, an impressive upgrade from Benchmade, a retooled version of one of the toughest hard-use knives in Cold Steel’s catalog, and a charming oddity from Victorinox. Let’s take a closer look.
The dust has settled on this month’s Knife Fight, and the people have chosen a new champ. Every month, we leave it to our followers on Instagram to crown a King of the Ring, the best new knife of the month, via a tournament. Eight knives enter; one knife leaves. Here’s a recap of what went down:
Mother’s Day is special for everyone and this year, it is extra special. We all need to focus on those that really love us and have loved us through the years. Moms everywhere deserve our special recognition. Whether we miss our moms because they are no longer with us or they are far away or just on the other side of the window or glass door because we are keeping our social distancing, let’s remember to remember them and give them our love. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!
We sat down with Spyderco’s Eric Glesser to talk new knives and new steels, including a new alloy developed especially for Spyderco blades. Read on for pictures and video of the first Spyderco fixed blades and pocket knives to come in 2020.
Our first stop on the 2020 SHOT Show tour was the Benchmade booth, where they revealed more than a few new products: mini versions of all-time favorites, tactical knives, gentleman’s folders, and even a few automatics. Let’s take a closer look!
If you love knives, the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show is worth paying attention to. It’s where most brands announce their new products for the coming year–Victorinox, Boker, Buck, Gerber, SOG, Spyderco, Benchmade (and many more) are all in attendance, carrying prototypes and early production samples of fixed blades and folders to come in 2020.
The Ontario Dozier Strike has always been a great knife, but at the regular price of $49.95, it didn’t exactly move the needle. At just under $20, however, this might just be the best value knife you can buy, anywhere. Read on to take take a closer look at this unassuming, yet impressive little folder.
