    Terrain 365 is a new brand for us, coming to us from custom knifemaker Michael Vagnino and founder of Prometheus Design Werx, Patrick Ma. The two have teamed up to introduce a line of knives made in the USA with Terravantium dendritic cobalt blades. Technically not a steel, Terravantium is a completely rustproof, non-magnetic cast cobalt alloy that contains ultra-hard carbides to provide a long-lasting edge.
    You'd never guess the high-tech metallurgy that went into the blade of the Otter slipjoint, which is a complement its unpretentious looks and practical design make it suitable for carry just about anywhere. Unlike traditional slipjoints with rust-prone carbon steels, the blade of the Terrain 365 Otter is built to tackle adventures off trail and come back unscathed.
    The all-new Asada is a follow-up to Gerber's smash hit Flatiron design. It features the same cool straight razor-inspired blade shape and frame lock construction, but features manual flipper deployment and a pocket friendly 3” blade size! Available now with red or gray aluminum scales, the Asada is sure to be another hit with those who want a sturdy, affordable everyday carry knife with style to spare.
    When you think of a hard-use bushcraft knife, the name L.T. Wright Knives should be at the top of your list. Handcrafted in Ohio, they have built a reputation of making a quality tool that just won't quit, turning out both classic and modern patterns that come with a lifetime warranty just in case. We recently received a new batch that you'll want to see, including the beautiful new GP Medium with desert ironwood scales and orange liners pictured above.
    If you don't have a Leatherman multi-tool in both your survival and go-bags, you're doing yourself a disservice. Nothing gives you as much functionality in such a compact package, and we think the Signal is one of their best full-size models for the bushcrafter or outdoorsman. It's outfitted with an array of tools and additional goodies - like safety whistle, ferro rod, and diamond sharpener - that allow it to shine out in the bush.
    Inspired by traditional Scandinavian knife patterns, the American-made Benchmade Leuku represents a heck of a bargain. Featuring premium 3V steel, it has an ideal combination of toughness and edge retention that is perfect for an outdoor knife. The Santoprene handles molded over the full tang are executed nicely as well. They are contoured perfectly, keep your hands from touching bare metal, and provide gobs of grip when conditions get cold or wet. The bushcraft sheath that is included perfectly rounds out the package with classic leather looks and multiple carry options.
    The Selkirk isn't your typical-looking Buck Knife, and they are built for rugged survival conditions and available as a fixed blade or folder, each in two sizes. Take them into the woods or wilderness and the drop point blades are perfect for any task you can think of. Our favorite part is the heavily contoured Micarta handle scales (yes, even on the folders!) that make these knives very comfortable to use hard. Bonus: the larger sized fixed blade and folder even feature a heavy-duty Kydex sheath with a combination fire starter and safety whistle.
    Swiss Army Knives don't get much more Swiss than this new limited edition Explorer! Not only do the scales boast scenes from the Swiss alpine, but they also contain goodies like a sewing pin and pressurized pen in addition to the usual toothpick and tweezers. Beyond that, the Explorer model has the perfect blend of tools to navigate both daily life and your adventures on the weekend, including dual blades, scissors, even a magnifying glass, and more.
    Sometimes, you don't need something too fancy with extra features that get in the way. Instead you need a tool that is built for purpose and just plain works. That is where this hatchet from Marble's comes in - the distillation of the camp axe form that is ready to chop, split, hammer, and carve its way through your next adventure. Made in El Salvador with an American hickory handle, it is the perfect combination of performance and affordability.
    The HEST folder is a hard-use, survival, tactical tank of a pocket knife: tough enough for demanding work but small enough to carry every day. The beefy blade incorporates a cap lifter/pocket deployer and wire breakers to add extra grunt, and the Italian-made models even incorporate a RotoBlock to bolster the strength of the already tough framelock. For even more strength you can get the fixed blade version which is made in the USA by Rowen (the same folks who make ESEE Knives) so you can be confident they are built to last!
    A huge wave of new knives washed into the KnifeCenter last week, and the best of them are here in our weekly round-up. We've got a unique everyday carry fixed blade from Viper Knives, the tiniest Benchmade knife you've ever seen, a small-batch tactical knife with an exotic steel, and a high-value design worth paying attention to from Kizer. Let's take a look!
    The Viper Berus is a compact, utilitarian fixed blade that is designed to be carried clipped to a pocket instead of buckled to your belt. It's a great way to bridge the gap between folders and fixed blades; you get the low-impact carry of a folder, but the durability and reliability of a fixed blade. It also helps that the Berus is quite stylish, thanks to a refined design by Tommaso Rumici.
    The M390 sheepsfoot blade with its subtle negative angle would make it a perfect work knife, but it's also available with a drop point blade shape for better general utility. The handle is thoughtfully shaped to provide reassuring grip without a lot of extra bulk, and the UltiClip keeps the sheath anchored to the inside of your pocket or waistband. If you want an easy-to-carry fixed blade that can still handle cutting tasks that require force and control, you'll want to consider the Berus. Plus, it comes in 8 variants to suit any taste, featuring Micarta, G10, and carbon fiber handles.
    Designed by Jared Oeser, the Benchmade Tengu Tool is a premium pocket companion: one part multitool, one part gentleman's friction folder. When the blade is closed, the extended tang works as a pry tool and bottle opener; when the blade is open it's a mini tanto utility knife made from CPM-20CV steel.
    Sure, the knife is tiny, but in terms of utility per ounce the Tengu Tool is on top. It weighs just an ounce, and is small enough to slip into your watch pocket and forget about until you need it. Dressed to the nines in stark black and white G10, the Tengu Tool has the look of a traditional knife but a whole lot of unique personality and modern construction and blade steel, to boot.
    Meet the Strix, the latest bold design from VDK Knives. The flipping action has a fluid, free-dropping feel that makes the knife nigh impossible to put down. And when it's time to put it to work, the contoured titanium handles and 3.75” M398 blade are more than up to the task.
    No, that's not a typo the blade on this Strix is made from M398 steel, an exotic new alloy that truly pushes the limits of edge retention for a stainless steel. By taking M390 and adding a bit more carbon and nearly double the amount of vanadium, M398 significantly increases the wear resistance of an already famously hard-wearing steel.
    Designed by Justin Lundquist, the compact Kizer Contrail is made to work and feel like a much bigger knife. The two-inch blade length is made from 154CM steel — a great balance of value and performance — and the handle is wide and thoughtfully shaped to fill the hand despite its short length.
    The competition at the ~$60 price point is fierce, but the Contrail hangs with the best of them, especially if you need a smaller knife that can handle big work. This go-everywhere locking folder is ready for action, and available in green, black, or gray.

    Here at the KnifeCenter, we're proud to stock excellent tools at every price, and the Gerber Sumo is shaping up to be an excellent budget knife. If you're looking for a low-cost, high-strength folder with fidget-friendly deployment, do not overlook Gerber's new Sumo folder. The banner feature here is its upscale crossbar-style lock: an innovative design that we've watched trickle out to different knifemakers once Benchmade's patent expired some time ago. The crossbar lock which Gerber is calling a “Pivot Lock” has a number of advantages: it's completely ambidextrous, strong, safe, quick, and easy to operate one-handed.
    The blade steel is nothing special, but the blade shape is perfect for all manner of hard work. Coupled with the thick, sculpted G10 handle we think it would make a great camp knife or large EDC.
    The Civivi Dogma isn't exactly new, because we've had the plain jane G10 versions in stock for about a month. What is new, however, are the striking brass and copper scales pictured here! Coated in black then partially buffed back to bare metal, it's a bold new look for a very old-school handle material. The jigged handle texture definitely adds to the classic feel, but the quick ball-bearing flipper deployment is as modern as they come.
    Civivi's willingness to play around with traditional materials and techniques, like brass and jigged handle scales, really cements their place as a brand offering “enthusiast-grade” knives at an accessible price.
    Designed by Tashi Bharucha, the Reate T3000 is made with superlative attention to detail and is sized just right for everyday carry. Falling into place between the smaller T2500 and larger T4000, the T3000 has a 3” M390 blade and is available with a selection of Micarta inlays, including the burlap pictured here.
    Tashi Bharucha's designs always manage to look muscular, streamlined, angular, and organic all at the same time. The result here in the T3000 is a unique looking knife with comfortable, locked-in ergonomics and a spectacularly satisfying flipping action. Even though the competition at this price point is fierce, Reate never fails to exceed our expectations!
    Maserin is celebrating their 60th anniversary with the release of the Sessantesimo slipjoint. Even if it wasn't for a special occasion, the Sessantesimo is worth talking about. There are a lot of modern slipjoints out there these days, but most of them have forgotten what really makes vintage slipjoints special, namely: lazer-thin blade grinds and hand-finished details.
    Well, the Sessantesimo is proof that Maserin hasn't forgotten! It features two blades - a plain edge main blade plus a serrated pen blade on the same spring. Building a two-blade slipjoint with a single backspring is a challenge, since the blades have to fold up side-by-side without getting in each other's way. Here on the Sessantesimo, both blades work beautifully, with crisp half-stops for safety. Every surface on the handle has been neatly rounded, and the blade tangs are hidden for a seamless look and comfortable carry. Really, the only concession to modern knifemaking is the use of threaded fasteners instead of pinned construction. If you're looking for a dress knife or a polite slipjoint to carry alongside another knife, don't skip over the Sessantesimo!
    The Tulay from Rike Knife is the world's first integral G10 flipper and the latest KnifeCenter Exclusive Release! Milled from a single piece of red/black G10, the wraparound handle on this knife is strong, supremely comfortable, and eye-catching too, thanks to contrasting carbon fiber inlays, with a selection of other colors also to be had. The blade is ready for action too. With over 3.5” of reach and a slice-ready profile, that means you aren't sacrificing performance at the altar of innovation!
    Halfbreed Blades Large Bush S35VN Flippers
    If your tastes run for the overbuilt, look no further than the Large Bush Flipper from Halfbreed Blades. This massive slab of titanium and S35VN steel will trample anything in front of you, and the handles even provide good comfort while doing said trampling. Our favorite part though, is the opening action. Flip it, and the weight of the blade as it slams open is sure to put a smile on your face!
    If your tastes run more covert instead, check out the Angst from WE Knife Co. Weighing as little as 1.8 ounces, you could stash it anywhere on your person, ensuring the slim dagger-profile blade is ready to deploy in any situation. Single-edged and sharpened to perfection, this knife is easy on the eyes, but hard to miss!
    The American-made LMF II is a bona fide classic, and one of the best-loved fixed blades in Gerber's repertoire. Designed and field-proven by troops around the globe, it features a tough combat/utility blade, an aggressive smashing pommel, and even a comfy/grippy nylon handle that provides insulation from electrical shocks. With a rugged knife like this by your side, you're ready to take on whatever the world can throw at you.
    EDC-friendly yet deadly-serious in the right hands, the new Sedge series from Steel Will marries traditional utilitarian design with modern materials and construction that makes them a shoo-in for your next do-everything knife. The long, narrow D2 blade can pierce as well as it can slice, and a curved pistol-grip handle keeps your angle of attack just right while protecting your digits thanks to an integrated finger guard. Grab it, open it, use it, and you'll soon be convinced at just how capable this knife really is.
    Built for the front lines and made in the USA, it is hard to overstate the confidence you'll feel when you put an RMJ hatchet in your hands. They use the toughest steels so you can abuse them mercilessly, and there are smaller options for campers and hikers to go along with their larger full-bore tactical models. Ridged G10 provides a solid and grip which lets you swing any of them with the force needed to back up the intent of these malevolent tools!
    Tactical and practical, the MUT offers a comprehensive toolkit that will keep your primary firearm in top condition. With mounts for cleaning rods, a bolt override tool, replaceable carbon scraper, and more, you can keep downtime to a minimum since you won't have to go hunting for what you need. And of course, everything is built around a set of sturdy pliers and comes with Leatherman's 25-year warranty.
    Cold Steel is known for making blades that are overbuilt and can take one heck of a beating. Inspired by some of the greatest fighting knives in history, their Chaos Series of fixed blades lives up to that legacy perfectly. Choose from the tri-edged Stiletto or double-edged Dagger, each inspired by WWI knuckle-knives, or the Marine Raider-inspired Bowie which makes one heck of a field knife. Rest assured they will still be standing when other knives have been laid to rest.
    The latest KnifeCenter-exclusive will make you do a double-take. At a glance, the Rike Tulay looks like an elegant modern flipper design, but on closer inspection, you realize that the entire handle is carved from a single piece of G10! That's right, this is the world's first G10 integral knife.
    Thanks to a cleverly engineered ball-bearing pivot and an embedded liner lock, this knife is impressively strong, impressively light, and impressively comfortable. The handle has a seamless feel, and the machining is top-notch. The 154CM blade is impressively thin behind the edge and should provide great performance. For everything the Tulay offers, we think it's an impressive value for just $150. These are exclusive to the KnifeCenter for now, so pick one up before they're gone!
    In the Japanese Buddhist tradition, “Satori” roughly translates to “sudden enlightenment.” It suits this knife well, because Peter Rassenti's designs are on another plane. The Satori 2.0 a collaboration with Custom Knife Factory — is a smaller version of the original, and the second integral knife on this list. Instead of the G10 used on the Rike Tulay, the handle of the Satori 2.0 is made from a single piece of titanium. It's significantly more challenging to machine, but provides unrivaled strength and a clean, minimalist look with no need for fasteners. The blade shape is really the star of the show here: an aggressively sloped recurve tanto made from M390 that commands attention and is ready for hard use.

    When you're looking for a new knife, most likely you'll come across different kinds of knives including the German ones. However, as German knives are one of the most prevalent ones, it's wise to clearly understand the key features of them. Whether you're a professional or beginner chef, a German knife is perhaps your best bet in the kitchen. In addition, if you're purchasing your knife from a renowned manufacturer, chances of going wrong is quite less. However, remember that a knife that's best-suited for somebody else may not be easier for you to handle. A German knife may seem to have a shape similar to other knives but it caters to different purposes in the kitchen because of its characteristics as described below.

    German knives usually come with a full length tang and a bolster.
    The steel used in German knives usually has ratings between 56 and 58 on the Rockwell hardness scale.
    The blade grind of a German knife is symmetrical.
    The thick piece of steel or the bolster of the knife is located right before its handle.
    A German knife comes with an angle of 20 to 22 degrees.
    Though weight differs from blade to blade, a German knife tends to be heavyweight. For instance, a Wusthof 8 inch chef's knife weighs around 9.6 ounces.
    Thicker, heavier German knives empower you to perform robust chores more conveniently.
    Don't require regular maintenance such as weekly cleaning or annual sharpening.
    Dishwater safe.

    German knife producers have been manufacturing premium knives since the 19th century and these unique features are perhaps the key reasons why chefs across the world prefer German knives.
    Available in sizes varying from 6" to 10", these bread knives with slightly curved or straight blades with a serrated edge offer great balance and strength to cut through any kind of bread. While the smaller knives are ideal for slicing bagels (and even tomatoes), the longer ones with 10” blades can cut through boule, ciabatta, or any other category of artisan bread. Many consider the 9” blade to be one for all-around use, which can be used to cut a small tomato or a large loaf of bread with equal ease. Made of the German 1.4116 stainless carbon alloy, the blades of these knives are resistant to corrosion and stains, exhibit durability, retain their edge much longer (30% in case of Wusthof knives) than the other knives, and are easy to re-sharpen to get a razor-like edge. With excellent fit and finish, these knives are good for decades of service.
    With a fine edged blade measuring 4.5” made of the finest German steel alloy, these carving knives can cut through steaks with minimal effort.

    Usually 3" to 6" in length, these knives have a narrow blade and sharp point, which make them ideal for removing the bones of fish, meat and poultry.

With superior edge retention and sharper blades than many other similar products available in the market, these knives work equally well for mincing and chopping tough ingredients – be it breaking down larger portions of meat, or cutting through the bones. Most of these German cleavers have blades triple riveted to the handle, thus offering exceptional durability. With ergonomic handles contoured for a comfortable grip, you can handle heavier cleaving and lighter cutting with equal ease.
    Crafted from a solitary blank of high carbon stainless steel, the two pronged forks are available in 6" and 7" that are tempered to 57-58? Rockwell. These knives help in slicing large roasts efficiently while guiding the carving knife away from your hands. While serving or slicing, you can even use the meat forks to hold the piece of meat in place. These knives have their full tang riveted to an extremely durable and comfortable polyoxymethylene (POM) handle for precise control. With blades that are durable, stain- and corrosion-resistant, hold their edge retention, and can be easily re-sharpened to a razor-like edge, these German forks that can also resist discoloration and fading can be precious to have in your kitchen.
    Available in sizes varying from 2.5" to 4", these knives have a fine edge blade that tapers to a point. Crafted from a solitary billet of premium German stainless steel alloy and coming fitted with the most robust industrial strength, ergonomic handle, these German pairing knives are designed to be all-purpose knives – somewhat similar to a chef's knife, the only difference being their smaller size. With a compact blade fitted atop a molded handle, you can use such knives for peeling, trimming and slicing of a variety of produce.
