Check Out Our Haul From The East Coast Custom Knife Show!

We’re back from the 2018 East Coast Custom Knife Show, and we scored some pretty exceptional pieces. Check out the ones we featured on our Custom Newsletter – and don’t forget to sign up so you can see new ECCKS models, some limited edition pieces from RMJ Tactical, and a beautiful folder from Les Voorhies we’ll be showcasing soon! KnifeCenter is the original and largest online catalog of cutlery, and that includes the best and newest custom knives from some of the most well known and idolized knifemakers in the world.

 

 

Borka Blades Custom SBK Folders and Light Fixed Blades

Few knives we saw at the show are more recognizable than the new SBK/F Folder from Borka Blades. This folding knife is styled after Sebastijan Berenji’s signature fixed blade and is the same size as the Mini Stitch, which makes it perfect for both everyday carry and tactical applications.

 

 

Michael Raymond Custom Galaxis Folder

Anyone familiar with Michael Raymond knows the extreme precision and attention to detail that go into each of his knives – and this Galaxis model is no exception. It features a beautiful jigged titanium frame and pocket clip, as well as one of the smoothest and most precise openings on the market.  Michael Raymond’s knives are extremely difficult to come by (this is the only one we’ve ever had), so if you’re a fan you better act fast!

 

 

Jeremy Horton Custom Survival Shorties

Jeremy Horton is known in the industry for his signature blade grind and Survival Shorty fixed blade. Coming in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, each SS model is a perfect expression of Jeremy’s no-nonsense style and his elite skill behind a grinding wheel.

 

 

New Gavko Custom Folding Knives

It’s like Shark Week all year round in the Gavko Knife Shop as Michal’s always discovering and producing new Shark models. The Nurse and the Snubnose Shrunk Trasher are two of his newest creations and both are beautiful examples of the truly unique style that sets Gavko Knives apart from all the rest. We’ve already sold the Snubnose, but the Nurse flipper (pictured) is still up for grabs! 

 

 

John Gray Tracker Dan Bloodshark Flipper

The Bloodshark, designed by Tracker Dan and manufactured by John Gray, is built for discreet concealed carry and real world combat. We were lucky enough to get our hands on one flipper from John at the show, and it’s an incredible knife with a litany of distinct tactical features and some seriously sick flipping action.

 

 

Brad Zinker Ultra-Thin Flippers

Brad Zinker Knives brings a whole new dimension to the EDC game, redefining how easily knives can be carried. When they are this thin, they absolutely disappear in the pocket.  A bonus of this slim design is that some of these compact folders can also double as a really cool money clip.

 

 

Kurt Merriken Custom Knives

Kurt Merriken is a new maker for us, and we’re very excited to be able to showcase a couple of his knives. This full-time firefighter from Florida spends much of his free time grinding away, specifically on unusually large frame lock folders.  We picked up two very different yet equally impressive pieces from Kurt at the show: one elegant full dress dagger with a 4” blade and a behemoth cleaver style knife that could likely break down a whole chicken in a matter of seconds.

 

What pieces have you pumped? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to share this blog with your friends who appreciate a custom masterpiece.

Introducing SCAR Brand Blades

Introducing SCAR Blades

Every once in a while at the Knifecenter, we are lucky enough to add a new brand to our family. SCAR Blades, a company started by two brothers and based in Idaho Falls, Idaho, produces custom hand-built blades for the outdoors, law enforcement, and military communities.

Most SCAR knives are made from 1095 high-carbon steel, prized worldwide for its sharpness  and edge retention. Furthermore, they are heat treated only along the sharpened edge, allowing the “softer” steel of the spine to absorb impacts and reduce fatigue. Most SCAR blades offer full-tang construction and phenolic handles, and feature Kydex sheaths custom-fitted to each knife. Backed by a lifetime warranty, these are rugged knives, designed for the toughest tasks around. Made in the USA. Check out the new additions at www.knifecenter.com!

NEW Chris Reeve Damascus and Custom Sebenzas

Chris Reeve Damascus and Custom Sebenzas
Chris Reeve Sebenzas are legendary. Many consider them to be the finest “mid-tech” folding knives made. “Mid-tech” refers to products that are no mass produced but are still produced at a higher rate than standard production knives. There is a lot of hand work and care in each piece. These models that just came in were hand picked by us at this year’s Blade Show. Each is a one of a kind creation. They are remarkable folders. Lots of Damascus blades and great anodized images on the handles. You can see them all at: www.knifecenter.com

Boker Leo-Damascus® V Damascus Steel Blade with 600 Layers
Boker Leo-Damascus® V Damascus Steel Blade with 600 Layers
Boker damascus blade knives have been really popular for many years here at the Knife Center. Boker does the best job of any production knife company. Now, they are entering the “custom world.” Boker Leo-Damascus is incredible. With steel taken from the gun barrel of a military tank, the blade has 600 layers of steel in a beautiful pattern. This fixed blade is awesome and shows Boker’s latest tendency towards custom level products from Germany. These are highly collectible and limited in production. Very few are allocated to the US market.
Here is Boker’s description: Continue Reading
