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.
Kershaw Brawler Assisted Series
The Kershaw Knives new entry:
A cold front blew in from the West the other day, leaving us with sunny skies and-oh look, the awesome new Kershaw Brawlers! These are a whole lot of knife for the money. They offer Kershaw’s smooth SpeedSafe® assisted opening, accessed via the thumb studs or the built-in flipper. A nice, solid liner lock secures the tanto-style 3 1/4″ blade, featuring 8CR13MOV stainless steel with a non-reflective black DLC coating, available in both plain and partial-serrated edges. Grab one today before somebody else beats you to the punch! Check them out at www.knifecenter.com!

Out the Front Assisted Openers 2nd Generation
2nd Generation Out the Front Opening Assisted Knives
The OTF models from Schrade and Smith and Wesson have been incredibly popular. They are really inexpensive and very impressive. This new 2nd generation is even nicer with a mechanism that is smoother, more reliable and a safety that is more intuitive.
Kershaw Knives Limited Edition Tyrade Assisted Opener with G-10 Handles
The Kershaw Tyrade is a very cool knife. The standard model Tyrade pocketknife is, however, a little pricey. That’s why we’re glad to see this model released with a more basic construction and at really reasonable price. Unfortunately, this is a limited run from Kershaw Knives, so grab one of these while they are available because they will be gone soon.
G10 handle slabs and a slightly less decorative blade finish and style allow this pocket knife to be marketed at a lower price point.

Benchmade Aphid™ Assisted Blade Small Liner Locks
The first Red Class from Benchmade made in USA. These are nicely designed, small knives with a great, easy to carry build. The dual thumb studes sit kind of close to the body of the handle, but they are usable. The fully lined plastic handles have holes for reversing the side of the pocket clip. These are nice, small knives that you can easily keep in the bottom of your pocket or clipped on. www.knifecenter.com has them available
Only the plain edge satin model has arrived so far. The first batch has “First Production run xx/1000” on the blade but we cannot promise one of these unless you call. Order right away, though, and you have a good chance at one.

Smith and Wesson Expand the 911 Rescue Knives
One of the original rescue knives, the SW911 was designed by Blackie Collins many years ago. It always had a spring activated glass breaker. The two new models still have that glass breaker, but have assisted opening blades as well. Plus they are updated with sturdier construction, a safety and much better overall fit and finish.

Columbia River Lift Off™ Linerlock Folders
This is a creative new opening system from Columbia River Knife and Tool. Originally developed by Depok Chopra, a knife distributor, this system utilizes the thumb stud for starting the assisted opening system. Just press down on the thumb stud and start the opening process and the blade just flies open. They have a stylish look, too!
Here is the whole scoop from Columbia River: Continue Reading
SOG Aegis Assisted Openers
SOG has produced assisted openers for years now and their system is one of our favorites. This new series has a great feel and has all the accouterments that a good combat folder should have: fast action, great feel, built in safety, reversible pocket clip and they look very cool. Congrats to SOG for keeping the bar high on combat folders!
