This time, we’ve got custom and mid-tech designs from Custom Knife Factory, Andrew Demko, and many more – check out the list and let us know in the comments which knife is number one on your Christmas wish list this year.

 

Ken Steigerwalt Custom Art Knives

 

The intersection of beauty and precision is where Ken Steigerwalt does his best work, a true representation of where art and knives meet. From the material combinations to the fit and finish, there isn’t a single seam out of place. The Art Deco features faceted mother of pearl handle scales paired with a Heimskringla Damasteel tanto blade. The real star, however, is the Doug Ponzio Turkish Mosaic Damascus steel on the Wing, with redwood burl scales and scalloped Robert Eggerling Damascus bolsters providing the foundation for the stunning pattern on the blade.

Swiss Army Classics with Great Designs

Great New Designs in from Victorinox

The Swiss Army Classic is, well, a classic! It’s a simple knife made in Switzerland that can be carried on a key ring or in a purse or suit pocket with enough tools to get most jobs done. Victorinox has been releasing the Classic with some great designs every year and this makes it possible to give one of these great tools as a really nice gift. The price tag is still pretty low at $16.95 and these are just in time for Christmas!

2018 New York Custom Knife Show Haul – Part One

There’s always a high that you get from being at a custom knife show that doesn’t wear off for a couple of weeks, especially when we get back and get to photograph and handle all the incredible custom knives we picked up. The New York Custom Knife Show was awesome and full of great pieces that we just have to show off – let us know your favorites in the comments!

 

Peter Rassenti Custom Snafu 2.0 Flippers

Peter Rassenti’s signature Snafu 2.0 Flippers are amazing pieces from top to bottom. These knives are plenty strong and incredibly thin thanks to Peter’s trademark integral handle construction that uses a single piece of titanium for maximum strength. The 3.75” clip point blade offers plenty of reach, and we’ve got versions with CTS-XHP steel and Chad Nichols XHP-Core Damascus to go with the artfully machined single-piece frames.

KnifeCenter Exclusive Nakamura – Now Only $169.95!

When it comes to Benchmade, the Nakamura easily ranks as one of the best gentleman’s folders of all time. Of all the available Nakamura models, our KnifeCenter Exclusive is by far the greatest variation out there. This Black Friday, you can add one to your EDC for only $169.95.

 

 

 

As far as we’re concerned, the wooden handle scales really take the aesthetics of the elegant Nakamura to the next level, with the darker finish on the wood nicely offsetting the lighter stonewash finish of the blade. While the handle is the same shape as previous Nakamura variants, the smooth, contoured wood gives it an all-new feel in the hand. The four finger indents are going to give you a great sense of control over your cuts, and the overall design is topped off with a reversible, tip-up pocket clip.

KnifeCenter’s Review: Spyderco’s Earth Brown G10 Para 3

 

Spyderco’s new limited edition Para 3 sports S35VN blade steel and earth brown G10 handle scales. This premium steel gives you a great combination of edge retention, durability, and corrosion resistance. The scales are lightly textured and offer a secure grip in the hand without adding bulk and the earth brown color is easy on the eyes, which pairs well with the satin finish on the blade and metallic pocket clip. Check out the full review on Spyderco’s latest limited edition run in the video!

The Best New Pocket Knives of 2018

We may only be a little more than halfway through 2018, but we’ve been wowed by the number of incredible knives that have made their way onto the scene this year. We’ve picked what we think are the best pocket knives (so far) of 2018.  These are definitely must-have additions to any EDC rotation.

 

Spyderco C227GP Brad Southard Hanan

 

A gracious gift, indeed! If you haven’t been brushing up on your Hebrew lately, that’s what Hanan means – and it pretty much describes this folding knife to a T. Designed by custom knife maker Brad Southard, the Hanan is one of the best gentleman’s folding knives to hit the market this year. Unlike most Spyderco knives, the Trademark Round Hole is much smaller than you’ll typically see, which is because this Spydiehole is mostly aesthetic. Instead, you’re going to rely on the flipper tab to deploy the blade. In our opinion, a gentleman’s pocket knife has to have certain qualities to make it worthy of the title – and the Hanan delivers that in spades. The two-tone G10/titanium hybrid handles are smooth and have an elegance that screams ‘class’. Plus, you can’t go wrong with S30V steel.

Why we picked it: Brad Southard is an amazing knife maker and designer, and his collaborations with Spyderco are no exception. This knife combines great design with high-end materials.
