Stilettos are known for their fast action, thin profiles, and symmetrical spear point blades. Bear OPS has created a smaller sized Stiletto folder that will serve you as an excellent EDC utility knife. The best thing about this knife, besides the S30V blade of course, is the lightweight yet strong aluminum handles. They’re shaped eerily similar and have the same anodized feeling as the Benchmade 940/943 and comes with a reasonably deep carry pocket clip. Take the Reaper Z handles or leave them, it’s up to you. For my money they’re something different in the collection so fine by me. This knife features a liner lock, smooth fast action, and flow-through design for easy cleaning. Proudly made in Alabama, this knife is available at www.knifecenter.com.

CRKT has been pumping out the Brian Tighe designs hard and fast recently, and for good reason. Each and every model he comes up with is refreshingly different and once you get one in the hand, is hard to put down. The two newest to arrives through the KnifeCenter doors are the Tighe Coon and Tighe Dye folders. They both have flipper mechanisms, gray aluminum handles, button locks, and reasonably deep carry pocket clips. However, apart from these material similarities, they really are quite different designs. The Dye model is a single edged version of an Italian Stiletto, but the handle provides a much more stout feeling for more demanding cutting tasks. The Tighe Coon knife is ultra smooth opening with a slightly recurved drop point blade for better slicing performance. Both knives feature mirror polished AUS-8 blades and are built like tanks. Check out these Tighet new knives at www.knifecenter.com.
