Microtech Crosshair Fixed Blade Knife

I am a big fan of Microtech.  Their knives are made right.  Strong, durable, and ready for action.  Their newest fixed blade knife, the Crosshair series, is no exception.  This fixed blade combat/survival knife is capable of nearly anything.  It is sharp on both sides, which for a survival knife may or may not be what you are looking for. Here are the specs:

Also, we have the Microtech Ludt automatic knives on their way.  I am excited to see the side opening offering that Microtech has lined up with these knives.  They make the best OTF knives on the market–I am hoping their side openers are of the same quality.  More in a couple of days when they arrive. 

Barracuda Automatic Knives

Just in, our newest automatic value blade knives.  The Barracuda knives come in three different colored handle variations–blue, black, or silver.  Each of the handles is a zinc alloy with great “fish” scale pattern across both sides to give your hand a great grip.  The handles also have several punch outs going across them which add to the gripability and make the knife just that much lighter.  The 440 stainless steel blade is sharp right out of the box.  The Barracuda auto knife is one to watch.

Blade Of the Day Program

If you aren’t already familiar with our Blade of the Day Program, here is how it works.  Each day, before about 10 am MST we put up one knife as our Blade of the Day.  Normally, this is a screaming good deal.  Grab it while it lasts.  The blade of the day is good only for that day on that particular knife–while supplies last.  On Friday, we put up three blades of the day.  This is because we won’t change it again until Monday morning.  Get the Blade of the Day and save a ton of cash. 

New Microtech Knives in Stock

We just got a couple of new styles of Makora II’s in.  They are the 106-1Bub and the 106-3 Bub.  These are incredible great looking Makora’s with a bubble inlay on each side of the handle.  The inlay is a 3D imprinted metal that looks absolutely stunning.
We should also have some new Daytona Microtech knives in by the end of the day today.  Check out our Microtech section in the next few days and see all the great knives available.

Bear and Sons, BC117B

Bear and Sons make great butterfly knives.  Their butterfly knives have pin construction which has some advantatges and some drawbacks.  The biggest advantage of pin construction is that the butterfly knife should never have to be adjusted.  If they are made correctly, this style of butterfly knife is great to use for both beginners and experts.  Bear and Sons does them right.  The drawback is that the tension on the blade is not adjustable.  If you get the knife and the action is too fast or too slow–there really isn’t a lot you can do to change it.  But, with that in mind, I think the Bear and Sons model BC117B is made right.  It has a nice tanto style blade point with the blade made of High Carbon steel.  The handle is epoxy coat powder cast metal.  Nicely made with quality materials, the BC117B is a fantastic butterfly knife.

• Action: Butterfly with Latch

• Blade Material: Hollow Ground High Carbon Proprietary Steel

• Blade Style: Tanto Point

• Handle Material: Epoxy Powder Coat Cast Metal
• Handle Length: 5 1/8″

• Overall Open Length: 9″
Blade Length: 4″

Great Gifts

We have many different small knives for sale that make great stocking stuffers or birthday gifts.  If you have been looking for a good quality knife that doesn’t break the bank–check out our Value Blade section. Some of my favorite small knives are the following:

  1. Tactical Peanut Automatic Knife
  2. Black Tactical Auto
  3. The Atomic

If you are looking for a retro style knife that is an automatic, any of the Milano Godfather knives are fantastic.  For around $30.00 you can pick up either the first or the second generation of these knives and they are both great quality, long lasting knives that look like the automatic knives from the 50’s and 60’s.  Cool look and fun to use.
If you are looking to step up in price a little, the ProTech automatic knives are always a good choice.   The Runt series are all very popular and look great.  Check out our huge selection of knives and get yourself one while you are at it.
