The 5 Best Sub-$50 Knives with D2 Steel

D2 tool steel is widely considered to be one of the best steels for utility knives because of its affordability and edge retention, which is why so many great EDC knives rock a D2 steel blade with pride. This quality steel rides the line between a carbon steel and a stainless steel, a perk that makes it a popular choice for everyday carry knives that you’ll actually put to work on the regular.

There are two schools of thought when it comes to everyday pocket knives: any knife that you carry every day can be an EDC (no matter the cost) or it’s better to have an EDC that’s less expensive that you can abuse daily without guilt. For those out there that want to shill out less than fifty bucks for a pocket knife, but you want good performance steel – you’re in luck. KnifeCenter has pulled together the five best sub-$50 pocket knives with D2 blades.

The knife import game is changing. Imported knives are steadily improving in quality, and their affordable price points make these great designs more accessible to knife enthusiasts everywhere. Why not celebrate the fact that people of all backgrounds can enjoy the utility that comes with carrying a razor sharp knife?

 

Ontario RAT Model 2 Folding Knife

 

 

The scaled-down version of Ontario’s popular Rat 1 is an EDC folder that can withstand some serious abuse. The hunters and survivalists out there should pay extra attention to this knife – it is made for you. Jeff Randall’s knife design combines heavy-duty cutting power with a lightweight, slim build that rests comfortably in your pocket. The drop point blade profile is perfect for utility tasks, and the liner lock offers rock-solid lockup and slick deployment. While it is nylon and materials obviously play a role in the low cost, the light weight, great grip, and corrosion-resistance are perks that makes this knife worth every penny.

 

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

ESEE/Ethan Becker Signature Kitchen Knives Series 1

Introducing the first series of kitchen knives from the beloved American outdoor tool company ESEE. The Series 1 Knives were designed by Ethan Becker, co-author of Joy of Cooking Cookbook and father of Becker Knife & Tool.

The Series 1 Knives are very ergonomic, well built, and scary sharp straight out of the box. Built up to true ESEE quality with a no questions asked lifetime warranty, these new kitchen knives can be found at www.knifecenter.com.

ESEE Knives IZULA: The Sequel

Rat Cutlery ESEE Knives IZULA II Neck Knife
ESEE Knives IZULA: The Sequel

The ESEE IZULA is one of the most popular knives to come out of ESEE Knives, formerly Rat Cutlery. The IZULA II takes everything that is great about the IZULA neck knife, and adds a 1/2″ longer handle. It also comes standard with Micarta handle slabs, which were a popular add-on for the original IZULA.

Although the original IZULA was definitely usable, the extra leverage that the IZULA II‘s extended handle provides makes the knife much more comfortable in large hands, and allows a greater amount of control of the knife in any hands. The Micarta handles improved the grip of the original IZULA, and are a welcome standard addition to the IZULA II. However, for those who would prefer the skeleton handles, or who would prefer to make their own custom handles, the Micarta handles can be easily removed.

The IZULA II is available as just the knife and sheath, or with a minimal survival kit. This kit includes a length of paracord, an emergency whistle, a fire flint, and various parts for additional carry methods, including a snap hook and a belt clip for the sheath.

If the IZULA II is as popular as the original IZULA, we will not be able to keep it in stock for long, so get yours today!

Limited Edition (serialized) Rat Cutlery DPx HEST Knife

Limited Edition Rat Cutlery DPx HEST Knife 3-1/8 inch Carbon Steel Blade, Removable Micarta Slabs

*Update- This item is no longer available. We hope to see more of the standard DPx HEST knives soon.

The HEST knife sold so quickly when it first appeared at the Knifecenter that we never had to clear a spot for it on the shelves. Whether it is the RAT name, reasonable price, or due to its lightweight, multi-featured design, it appeals to backpackers, survivalists, weekend warriors, collectors, and scouts. Though the standard HEST is currently out of stock, fortune smiled upon us when the Limited Edition HEST appeared at our door. Only 250 of these serialized knives have been produced, and for a limited time one of these collectibles can be yours. Act now because at only $10 over the cost of the original HEST, these unique Pelton designed knives won’t be here long.
