Every year Spyderco Knives produces limited production designs available in different handle or blade materials than their originals known as Sprint Runs. For 2012, they are upgrading the extremely popular Endura model, making the matching model to the Damascus/Jigged Bone Delica from 2011. Featuring layered VG-10 Damascus steel, blue titanium bolsters, and jigged bone scales, the Endura Sprint is great for any Spyderco fan or collector. The knife does not have a pocket clip and it adds a little weight to their Lightweight and FFG models, but you get so much more with this knife. It’s got the feel of a custom knife in the familiar package of an old favorite and the Damascus etching on each blade is unique, making each knife one of a kind. You can see this at www.knifecenter.com.

The Exquisite Benchmade Gold Class 690-101
All of the brands we carry make top notch knives. The custom and limited edition products we carry are some of the highest quality knives on the market. But only Benchmade’s Gold Class series takes those excellently designed knives and advances them to the next level with extravagant and rare materials. From the hornet’s-nest damascus blade to the anodized gold titanium liners, the Gold Class 690-101 is a piece of art. Take note: The Benchmade Gold Class 690-101 is one of the most expensive folding knives we carry. But it is also one of the most beautiful and unique knives we have had the pleasure of offering to the public.
The blade of the Gold Class 690-101 is made out of a complex damascus. It is like a Rorschach test, with each examination revealing new insight. The mammoth ivory used for the handles is very rare, coming primarily from mammoths preserved in the Russian tundra. The bolsters are made of mokume, a Japanese style of metal very similar to damascus, but made with gold and other rare metals.
The collector who is looking for the prestige of a well made, rare, and valuable knife need look no further. This is the pinnacle of the art form.
