Holiday Gift Ideas for Combat & Tactical Knife Lovers

Looking for gift ideas for a tactical knife fanatic? Or maybe you’re looking to grow your current combat knife collection? Either way – we’ve got eight awesome gift suggestions from great knife brands like Cold Steel, Blackjack Knives, Böker, and more.

 

 

DPx HEST/F Milspec Niolox-Steel Folder

The DPx HEST/F Milspec is a low-profile knife now available with corrosion-resistant German Niolox tool steel, a patented RotoBlock frame lock, integrated glassbreaker, and an easily adjustable all Torx screw construction. Robert Young Pelton, DPX’s Founder and international adventurer, knocked it out of the park with this design, and LionSteel’s Italian production seals the deal on this fantastic knife.

 

 

 

Cold Steel Pro-Lite Folders On Sale

Designed by renowned knifemaker Andrew Demko, the Pro-Lite offers up all the best elements of Cold Steel at a bargain price. This rugged EDC design is beautifully simple with a classic appearance and slim profile, and the FRN handle keeps the knife light and impact-resistant. The Pro-Lite is completely ambidextrous with a reversible clip and thumbstud for left or right carry. Available in tanto, clip point and drop point variations, this value folder is now 56% off!

 

 

 

SK Knives Scorched Battle Earth Titanium Spikes

Steven Kelly’s handmade Titanium Spike is a high quality, last-ditch tool built for concealment that weighs in at less than three ounces. Steven is the master of working with titanium, and this spike is definitely evidence of that mastery. Each piece is unique, so the scorched battle earth finish may vary slightly, but that just adds to its collectibility and style.

 

 

 

 

Blackjack Mamba II Fixed Blade Closeout

While we’re huge fans of Blackjack’s traditionally-styled American fixed blades, the Mamba II’s tactical design is a complete departure – and we’re still enamored. From the A2 tool steel to the snakeskin-textured rubber scales to the MOLLE compatible sheath, the Mamba II is a truly fearsome knife with a monster blade. We’re talking 9.5” of steel, complete with recurve and convex blade grind. And now, during Black Friday weekend, we have all Blackjack fixed blades on sale HERE.

 

 

 

Böker Plus D2 Kwaiken Flippers

With its clean lines and slim design, the Kwaiken is easily one of the most influential knife designs of the 21st century. The thin construction and exclusive materials make the Kwaiken a true crossover between a gentleman’s folder and a tactical knife. With G10, steel and titanium options to choose from, you can pick whichever flavor best works for your taste.

 

 

United Cutlery Covert Defense Push Daggers

For those that love Honshu’s famous karambit lineup, it’s time to branch out and pick up one of their push daggers. Available in both large and small variations, these self-defense weapons are super discreet and built from good stock. The genuine leather sheath comes equipped with a quick release snap and nickel-plated steel boot clip, and the dagger-style blade’s capable steel is more than ready to tackle the gnarliest tasks.

 

 

 

ASP Tactical Flashlights On Sale

ASP designs some of the world’s finest public safety lights that are reliable, powerful, and incredibly bright – everything you’d need for a great tactical flashlight. This collection has keychain models, brightly colored options, and flashlights that run off of a single AAA battery.

Ontario Ranger EOD Kerambit Fixed Blades

Justin Gingrich, one of our favorite knife designers, teamed up with a Marine Corps Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit to bring us the Ranger EOD Kerambit.

What Does a 3.15″ Mini Karambit Look Like?

 

It’s compact, it’s useful and let’s be honest, it’s downright cute – any real man can admit that. Looking to add a useful karambit to your EDC or keyring? Check out our video where we show you just how much Fox KnivesMini-Ka folding karambit can handle.

TactiCall Alpha 1 iPhone 5 Cases are TactiCool!

TactiCall iPhone 5 Cases are TactiCool!

 

If you’re looking for a conversation starter, something that will impress each and every person you show it to, this is it! True, many people will scoff at it or ask you what happens when you encounter a TSA agent with this in your pocket, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s the convenience of having a blade with you at all times, even if you forget your EDC knife, and ease of which you can remove the case with the torx bit it comes with that makes this an excellent product. All you have to do is pop out the four corner screws and viola, you’re in business. I’ve had my TactiCall for a little over a month now and after you get used to the added weight, it really becomes a highly useful and functional tool. I was wary at first that the bottle opener would apply too much force to the back side of the phone and could break it, but that’s definitely not the case, ha. The opener is strongly reinforced by the design of the case and it pops the tops off quickly and effectively the first time, every time. The knife comes as sharp as any karambit blade out there and locks up solidly right out of the packaging. The pivot is adjustable if any play develops using the same supplied torx tool as you use to remove the case, so you always have a properly functioning knife. This is a very useful product and does an excellent job protecting your iPhone 5, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

New Quartermaster QTRM5TR Pre-Production Models

New Quartermaster QTRM5TR Pre-Production Models
A long-lasting friendship with some of the insiders at QTRM5TR Knives has allowed Knifecenter a very unique opportunity. QTRM5TR has just recently introduced it’s “second season”. This time, QTRM5TR has decided to pay homage to another pop culture favorite television show from the 80’s. Set in Hawaii, and filling our heads with images of scantily clad beach bunnies and Ferrari’s; the show has left a lasting impression with a lot of us males, aged 30-60.

At first discovery, the names seem strange, but once the overall theme is realized, it’s quite amusing and certainly a unique way to draw a kinship with their customer base. The names of the knives hardly matter at all once it’s in your hand. The angular, modern and industrial stylings of their knives are attractive and unique, but the surprisingly comfortable ergonomic-grip in the midst of all the angles and edges is remarkable.

The use of a new Carpenter Alloy in these knives is a great choice. We’ve received stellar reviews of the CTS XHP alloy and their newest air-hardened, high-carbon, chromium steel offering certainly won’t disappoint either. CTS BD4P alloy is a high-performance blade steel offering a fine, uniform carbide structure yielding excellent edge retention and grinding/polishing characteristics.

All in-line QTRM5TR Knives come equipped with the ORB® pivot system and tri-spoke pivot assembly: These two features will continue to further separate this new American brand from its competition and allow them to yield more popularity in the years to come. The folders are so smooth and lock up is so solid that you’d think they were customs that were triple the price. Get them now. We bought the entire run of pre-production examples, no one else on earth has these knives for sale.

Mantis Vuja De Balisong Karambit

The Mantis Vuja De is finally here at the KnifeCenter and what a cool knife this is! The butterfly karambit – many people thought it couldn’t be done but the genius behind Mantis and QTRM5TR Knives, Jared West, has pulled it off and executed it well. It features a very cool and effective button that locks the knife in both the open and closed positions. It’s not really designed for practicing your flipping tricks as the  lock automatically engages when the knife becomes completely open. It could flip smoother, like a Benchmade 51 or 62, and it could be a little sharper like an Emerson Karambit but it really is nothing like those other knives. It’s in a class all its own with a 2″ M-VX steel hawkbill blade and 7″ overall profile including the rear finger hole so you’ll never have the problem of guessing which one the safety handle is again. Karambits are tactical, defense specific tools and the Vuja De by Mantis Knives is no different, plus it has the cool added feature of being a Bali-Song flipper. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.
