We encourage all citizens to stand up for truth in all aspects of our government. Please stay safe this holiday as we look forward to celebrating many more holidays with our awesome customers! Happy 4th of July from the KnifeCenter!
Spyderco’s Salt Series of knives was made with one thing in mind: to make corrosion an afterthought. Through the use of exotic steels and handles with plenty of traction, these knives were made to be ideal companions in corrosive and aquatic environments, hence the name Salt. On top of that, the Native 5 is a fantastic American-made EDC that contains all of the best elements we love about Spyderco designs.
Now that Spyderco has welcomed the Native 5 into the Salt family it comes with some new tweaks, making this high-performance knife even better. The biggest change is the use of high-performing LC200N blade steel, famously used by NASA in ball-bearings as a substitute for 52100 in their aerospace equipment. This steel is a nitrogen-enriched tool steel that offers edge retention that can rival many of today’s modern super steels, a big leap over the H1 steel that Spyderco has traditionally used in their Salt knives. LC200N also sports exceptional toughness and extreme corrosion resistance, making it ideal for use in the Salt Series.
The Zhim is your typical Cultrotech knife sized perfectly for everyday carry. This means that it rides on washers and is one of the most precise, beautiful pieces anywhere on earth. For those who prefer more compact knives and aren’t willing to sacrifice, turn to a Cultrotech Zhim.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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’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.
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.
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.
We are closing out 2018 with another great batch of custom and mid-tech knives. From mokume pens made by Sergey Rogovets to S90V EDC knives from up-and-coming custom knifemaker Kendall Hughes, each item on this list is better than the last.
They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we can’t imagine a soul on earth not finding these pens to be over the top gorgeous. They are far and away the nicest writing implements we’ve ever carried and we don’t see them getting any better than this.
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:
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.

The season for giving is upon us, and that can mean one of two things: you spend your valuable time researching the best outdoor knives or you let your friends over here at KnifeCenter do the job for you. We’ll keep this guide short and sweet – just eight outdoor/survival essentials that would make great gifts for yourself or others. If you have someone in your life that spends more time outdoors than indoors, the right present for them is on this list!
While all of the Hunter Pro models here are certainly great for backcountry EDC, our favorite from the lineup has to be the silver Alox variant with its removable pocket clip and integrated lanyard hole. The scales are ribbed, allowing for a unique grip that will provide plenty of traction in wet environments. These traditional lockback hunting knives have been field tested to ensure quality performance.
That’s the Ticket!
This is Spyderco’s annual clearance of their discontinued knives. We have reserved as many as we could of these incredible deals from Spyderco, but we don’t know how many we will actually get. Quantities are not guaranteed, so get your order in at these super low prices!
With fall approaching, those of us who love to spend our time outdoors are eagerly awaiting some casual bushcrafting and hunting adventures without the summer heat or winter freeze. Whether you are a casual trekker or a seasoned hunter, now is the perfect time to get out and play with your favorite blades. For all you outdoorsmen on a budget out there, we’ve pulled together what we feel is some of the most essential hunting and outdoor gear under $50. Now you can focus solely on the right thing – The Hunt.
We’ve asked our social media followers before what they prefer for their hunting adventures – a solid full-tang fixed blade or a knife with replaceable blades. The results were surprisingly even. Replaceable blades are great for lessening the weight of your pack and they keep you from needing to sharpen while field dressing your game. Havalon’s Piranta knives make it easy– when the blade gets dull, just pop it off and replace it with a razor sharp new one. For less than thirty-six bucks, you’ll get thirteen replacement blades, a rugged, stain resistant handle with a grippy rubber inlay, and a durable Nylon holster. For the hunters looking to speed up their field dressing and skinning processes, the Piranta may be the best knife option for you.
