Our Thoughts on the Kershaw Bareknuckle

Let’s take a look at the Kershaw Bareknuckle, now available over at the Knife Center

 

 

The Bareknuckle, like the Kershaw Natrix, was inspired by the original Zero Tolerance 0777. The Natrix, a well-rounded EDC knife that can tackle just about any everyday task, has been a best-seller here at the KnifeCenter since its introduction. If you liked the Natrix but wished it could be made in America, then the Bareknuckle should be right up your alley. The Bareknuckle takes its cues from that award-winning design and provides a slim profile, excellent materials, and American-made quality.

 

 

For starters, the blade uses Sandvik 14C28N steel, a fine-grained stainless alloy that was originally developed for Kershaw, giving the knife excellent performance. Thanks to the modified Wharncliffe blade with its sweeping profile, it is versatile enough to handle almost any cutting task.

 

 

The handles on the Bareknuckle can fit a wide range of hand sizes and are made from gray anodized aluminum that gives the knife a very industrial look. It also features Kershaw’s patented Sub-Frame Lock, which gives the security of a frame lock but has the added benefit of cutting down on weight.

 

 

This pairs well with the deep-carry pocket clip, making it feel like the knife is barely even there.

 

 

Our favorite feature on the knife is the use of the KVT Ball Bearing System. Just a press on the flipper tab and the blade swiftly glides into place, making it ready to rock n’ roll at a moment’s notice. The non-assisted feeling of this buttery smooth flipping action is worth the price of admission.

We love how Kershaw has packed in so many of their innovative features into an American-made package, and this is a great candidate to make part of your EDC rotation. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Outdoor & Survival Knife Essentials

Cold Steel S35VN Ultimate Hunter

Back in September, we showcased Lynn Thompson’s new collaborative lockback design with Andrew Demko – the Ultimate Hunter. Now, we have a more discreet black G10 variation to go alongside their highly visible orange model. Both come equipped with premium S35VN steel and Cold Steel’s legendarily strong Tri-Ad Lock, making them some of the most durable folding outdoorsmen knives we’ve seen recently.

Ring in the New Year with Great Outdoor & Survival Knives!

We’ve got some great outdoor and survival knives and gear from the best knife brands in the business, including Spyderco Knives, Cold Steel, Bark River, CRKT, and more!

 

Bark River JX6 Companion Series

The Chris Tanner-designed JX6 Companion is an everyday carry fixed blade with an ergonomic shape that lends itself well to skinning, slicing, and chopping. We have new variants that Bark River recently debuted which upgraded the A2 tool steel on previous models to CPM-154 super steel.

 

Spyderco LC200N Steel Native 5 Salt Knives

One of Spyderco’s most popular folders has now been fitted with rust-proof LC200N steel and lightweight FRN handles as the new addition to their Salt Series. With both serrated and plain blade options, this ultra corrosion-resistant knife is great for fishermen, boaters, or anyone who spends time on the water.

 

Cold Steel Bushman Integral Fixed Blades

The blades and integral handles in Cold Steel’s Bushman Series are expertly forged out of thick slabs of SK-5 high carbon steel. Carefully ground to an extra thin edge, you can either pick up a Bowie-style variant or a standard straight back – both profiles make for great survival knives.

 

Swiss Military Surplus Pack Hatchet

This small camping axe is 15.75” and so well-balanced you can pretty much put a hand anywhere on its hardwood ash handle and still make some stellar chops. Add the fact that it offers Swiss-made steel and you’ve got yourself a great survival hatchet for less than twenty bucks.

 

CRKT Ken Onion Prowess Flippers

Ken Onion is known for producing some wildly creative designs, but the Prowess is a stripped down, rugged knife that goes against his usual grain. This is a great knife for camping or hunting that feels good in the hand, opens fast thanks to IKBS, and is lightweight and nearly indestructible.

 

Condor Sabertooth Machetes On Sale

Condor’s Sabertooth machete is available with either a 12” or an 18” 1075 high carbon steel blade and high impact polypropylene handles. The black powder coating is going to hide your use marks well, which is good – considering they’re both less than fifty bucks, you’ll be using and abusing them.

 

Camping and Survival Fire Starters

We’ve got a great collection of fire steels, fire starters, compasses, match tube holders, parashovels, fire starter gels, and more. These are must-have outdoor essentials that anyone who’s looking to put together a safe and secure campsite will need.

 

Schrade Old Timer Honesteel

If you’re looking for a lightweight honing steel to keep your edge ripple-free between sharpening sessions, pick up the Old Timer Honesteel. This is a tried and true honing steel with a chisel point, a lanyard hole with a leather lanyard, and a brown leather belt sheath. This honing steel has been a staple for many knife owners for decades, so it’s about time you picked up your own.

Knife Center’s Best-Selling Knives of 2018

Let’s take a look at some of 2018’s greatest knife hits from Knife Center. These are knives that you guys just couldn’t get enough of and we sold more of than any other knives. Here’s the rundown:

 

Spyderco SpyderHawk Salt Folding Knife

 

 

So, we’ve sold a lot of Spyderco knives this year, including a lot of the Para 3, but what really surprised us was the SpyderHawk Salt. This is one of our top-selling Spydercos of the year, and it has to be because of how distinctive it is. This folding knife would make a great dive knife because it features a fully serrated hawkbill blade with Spyderco’s H1 steel. That’s right, this knife is a part of Spyderco’s Salt Series, which means it’s virtually impervious to rust, making it great for use in marine environments.
