CRKT has just unveiled a new, US-made fixed blade to celebrate thirty years in the knife business. This is the Soldotna, an all-purpose outdoors blade designed by longtime CRKT collaborator Russ Kommer. Certainly one of the coolest things about being friends with a custom knife maker is the chance that they may eventually make you a bespoke knife for a special occasion. The Soldotna can trace its origins to just such an occurrence: Kommer made a custom fixed blade for CRKT founder Rod Bremer, who intended to give it to his grandson for an upcoming hunting trip. And you can definitely see the ..read more

Earlier this week we talked about a limited edition version of the Zero Tolerance 0450, a slim, slick EDC-style design from Dmitry Sinkevich. There’s a second limited release on the way from ZT, a Factory Special Series 0308 with different steel and handle scale than the standard versions. In our piece on the aforementioned 0450 limited edition, we talked about the ways in which ZT expanded its design capabilities beyond the super stout, overbuilt folders that defined its early output. Well, the ZT 0308, released in 2020, is an homage to that earlier design philosophy. It’s a big boy that wei ..read more

Rosecraft Adds New Two-Blade Jack to Spring Lineup

Rosecraft Blades continues to establish its reputation in the traditional knife space with another recent release called the Briarpatch Jack. This one deviates from some of the other recent Rosecraft traditionals with its two-blade setup, but with familiar materials and construction in tow. Despite their surface-level differences, there are many shared characteristics between traditional and modern folders; that being said, multiple blade setups are almost exclusively the purview of traditional knife design. Collectors and historians know that these multiblade pieces can get quite complicated ..read more

Recent Boker Release Aims to be Carryable All Over the World

Boker whipped up another entry into the relatively underserved genre of “international knife laws compliant” folders with the Worldwide 2.0. This one does its best to satisfy the modern knife buyer’s tastes while keeping its dimensions and design as globally legal as possible. In general, aiming for broad legal carry means two things: you need to have a shorter blade, and you need to forgo a locking mechanism. The Worldwide 2.0’s blade measures 2.52 inches, so it check the first box without sacrificing too much in terms of its cutting ability when it comes to mundane, day-to-day stuff – things ..read more

Some good news to end the week on: Tactile Knife Co. just unveiled its latest model, the Chupacabra. The incoming folder caters to enthusiast users and collectors, with highly capable EDC specs and a lock on loan from none other than SNECX Tan. Sizewise, the Chupacabra falls right in between the larger Maverick and the smaller Rockwall, with a blade length of 3.3 inches. The modified sheepsfoot shape does all the necessary EDC stuff, including piercing thanks to the raised tip. It’s a thumb stud opener, and the blade steel, in a move that will surprise exactly no one, is CPM MagnaCut, so the m ..read more

Kombou Graces Bestech with New Seraph Folder

1w ago
The indefatigable Grzegorz Grabarski, AKA Kombou, has another premium Bestech collaboration piece on the way, called the Seraph. This folder goes big, both in terms of its general dimensions and its overall aesthetic. The visual impact of the Seraph comes from its whole, rather than its parts, but each part is striking on its own as well. To start with, look at that blade: at 3.66 inches it finds itself in the large EDC designation for us (although individual users’ mileage will vary on that front). The crisp dropped spine and fuller give it an exotic look, but at heart this is a pure, textboo ..read more

Civivi Starflare Delivers Sleek Take on EDC Wharnie

It must be wharnie month over at We Knife Co. headquarters. Recently we wrote about the Yardbird, a wild karambitized wharncliffe from collaborator Maciej Torbé; now, under the Civivi flag, the in-house design crew are prepping the Starflare for release, a super slick button lock knife with a wharncliffe slicer blade. There’s something about wharnie blades, in pictures, that makes it hard to get an accurate idea of their size. You might look at the Starflare and think it’s going to be on the smaller side, but no: at a blade length of 3.2 inches, this is a mid-size piece. This is no modified wh ..read more

Tomorrow, the New York Custom Knife Show 2024 begins. The small, custom maker-focused event has been around, in one form or another, for quite a while, and is one of the spring highlights of the custom knife show circuit. Like many stalwart shows, NYCKS has a history that is decades long, going all the way back to the 70s, albeit in a much different form and not under the aegis of Fifty Fifty Productions, a company that specializes in small-scale but high-end knife shows (They’re the folks behind the Nashville Custom Knife Show too). Also like many shows of a similar ilk, NYCKS was started by ..read more

A.G. Russell Knives Powerball Folder Gets Another Variation with New Lock

2w ago
Here’s a heads-up on a recent A.G. Russell Knives release that flew under the radar: the Powerball 4. This latest incarnation of the now seven year-old series changes things up quite a bit over its predecessors. A.G. Russell Knives, founded by and named after the late, great knife maker, is that rare bird, a company that is both an all-purpose knife dealer, as well as manufacturer of their own models. Right up until his passing in 2018, Russell was working on knife models, some of which did not even see release until after his death. Since then, the team at AGK has continued to turn out both t ..read more
