LionSteel is an Italian knife company and, if you haven’t heard of them, it’s about time you did. They’re not a new company by any means but are gaining recognition throughout the knife industry for their extremely beautiful and high quality tools. LionSteel, like many companies, has a flagship model which they’re best known for; the SR-1. It’s a large, tactical/combat, frame-lock folder with a wicked 3.7″ blade and a handle made from one solid piece of machined aluminum or titanium. This makes this knife one of the stoutest on the market. LionSteel also manufactures some EDC/gentleman’s folding knives and higher end money clips but they are best known for their recent collaborations with DPx Gear for the HEST Folder and with Spyderco for the LionSpy. Everything is done in-house in Maniago, Italy from design and conception to stamping and finishing to ensure the utmost quality control. See the new LionSteel products at www.knifecenter.com.

Cold Steel is one of the most popular knife brands in the industry today and the Recon 1 is a main stay in their line. New for 2012, the Recon series adds two new sizes which are here for good and much more easily carried than the original 4-inch models. The Mini Recon’s are the perfect EDC size for most people packing a 3″ blade and 4-1/8″ highly textured G10 handle. The Micro Recon series is more of a keychain knife with a 2″ blade, 2-3/4″ closed length and an included keyring. Ergonomics are definitely a strong point for the Recons as all three sizes meld into your hand perfectly. All knives are or will soon be available in Tanto, Spear Point or Clip Point blade configurations except the Micro, which will only be Tanto and Spear Point. See all the variations at www.knifecenter.com.

Spyderco Knives has released their Tenacious folding knife model in all black. It really makes this every-day-carry type of economy Spyderco a great, stealth carry. The Tenacious series are perfectly sized folders geared for rough use for people who prefer a liner lock and G-10 handles. This is really the combination that made Benchmade and Emerson so successful, but put together is China for economy. The materials are still good as the reviews of current Tenacious models will show. People like this knife and the black versions are sure to be a hit.
