Our Thoughts on Case’s Collaboration with Southern Grind

Case’s latest design – the CG01 – is a departure from their traditional offerings, and we think this strategic partnership with Southern Grind has helped them jump into the 21st century. Don’t worry, though –  while this design is different than their norm, it still captures the class of their traditional knives. Watch our video where we take a closer look at this contemporary addition to Case’s lineup!

Outdoor & Survival Knives, Tools, and Gear

While it seems like it has been hot forever at this point, summer has only started – there’s still plenty of time for hiking, camping, hunting, and bushcrafting before the weather turns on us. Then again, we’re located in Virginia…’unpredictable’ is an understatement when it comes to our weather. These eight outdoor essentials are ideal for survivalists from any region, including locations with seriously sweltering humidity.

 

Spyderco Sprint Run Delica 4 Wharncliffe Folder

Inspired by a request from one of their customers, this variation of a Spyderco favorite features a flat-ground Wharncliffe-style blade crafted from high-performance HAP40 tool steel. You’ll get all the standard Delica 4 Lightweight features paired with a thick, straight edge that specializes in controlled cuts. This workhorse lockback also sports unique burnt orange handles that make it a standout from the lineup. This knife is in such high demand that we’re actually waiting on a new batch from Spyderco – so stay tuned for the next run!

 

Steel Will Roamer Outdoor Fixed Blades

Tough, versatile, ergonomic – all characteristics embodied by the Roamer. These fixed blades come in a wide variety of blade shapes, some of which are forged from high quality D2 tool steel. The grippy handles are available in highly visible orange and attractive black, and their deep grooves ensure a firm hand purchase, even in wet conditions. If you’re a hunter or a fisherman, you need a Roamer.

 

KA-BAR All American Tactical Spork 3 Pack Set

You may not think of a spork as a complete set of flatware, but KA-BAR’s twist on this classic kitchen utensil is just that thanks to its hidden serrated knife. Made from foodsafe Grilamid, this USA-made fork/spoon combo tool is dishwasher safe and weighs in at only 3.9 ounces – a light load for any backpack, pocket or tool box.

 

Real Steel Knives Bushcraft D2 Folder

Real Steel was tasked with making a compact folding knife that performed like a bushcrafting fixed blade – and we can safely say they delivered. This folder has a tough D2 plain blade with a Scandi grind and a squared off spine that can be used with a fire steel. The G10 scales will stay grippy even in wet conditions, and the red stainless liners give it a touch of class you don’t usually see with survival knives in this price range.

 

Cold Steel Rajah II Folders

Any true outdoor enthusiast knows that having a kukri is a requirement, not an option. It’s a multi-purpose tool that cuts, chops, slices, and shears through tough materials like butter. Cold Steel has come through with a folding kukri that comes equipped with their Tri-Ad locking mechanism, Griv-Ex handles, and your choice of CTS-BD1 or AUS-10A steel. We can tell you firsthand that holding this 14” monster folder makes us feel ready to take on anything.

 

Buck Knives Silver Creek Series Fillet Knives

For the big fish hunters out there, these fillet knives are perfect for large catches. Made with flexible 420 Series steel that’s highly corrosion resistant, these blades will bend and move easily through meat and scales to give you a perfectly sliced fillet. The blue rubber handles have anti-slip grips and stainless steel safety guards that feel great in the hand, making these a necessity for any angler.

Spyderco Ulize - the German Police Model

Slim, sleek, long, and natural are the first things that come to mind when handling the new Spyderco Ulize. Very similar in looks, size, and shape to one of the original Spyderco models, the C07 Police, this Ulrich Hennicke design is more than fit for duty. The Ulize was specifically designed for use by the German police as a functional utility tool as well as devastating cutter with its 4.12″ re-curved VG-10 blade. The handle melds into the hand extremely well and puts the blade in an excellent cutting position in multiple grips. Proceeds of this knife will benefit officers killed in the line of action and the four-position clip, backlock, and trademark round-hole make this pocket knife completely ambidextrous and great for any user.

The Kurai is a gentleman’s folder with style to spare, with carbon fiber-patterned aluminum handle scales. It doesn’t sacrifice substance either-it’s heavy for its size (in a good way), and its 2.5″ 8Cr13MoV blade with Titanium Carbo-Nitride coating provides great performance and corrosion resistance at an extremely reasonable price. Opening is smooth and easy with the thumb stud, and the linerlock is nice and solid. The Kurai makes a great gift, too! Check them out today at www.knifecenter.com!
