Contest for October

We are having an open contest here at BladeOps. It goes until the 25th of October, 2009. There will be two winners. Winner #1 will be the person who submits the best knife review on our site. This will be based on the quality of the review, how well it describes the knife, and how well it describes how you like it. The judges will be the staff at BladeOps. This person can choose, as their prize, either a brand new ProTech Godson with Carbon Fiber inlays (PT700CF). Or, they can choose a Maxpedition Knife Collector’s bag (MSRP $188.00).
The second winner will be chosen based on quantity. The person who submits the most quality reviews will win. A quality review is also based on content and description. “Nice Knife” is great but won’t be considered a quality review–it is just too short and not descriptive enough. The 2nd winner will get the prize that is not chosen by the first winner. This contest is not valid in states or areas where it is prohibited.

Lightning OTF’s with Tactical Blades

We just got 3 different styles of the ever popular Taiwanese Lightning in stock. Each of these have tactical black plain edge blades. The handle colors are black, sand, or red. These Lightning out the fronts are the really good ones–not the crap from China. They activate smooth and fast and lock up very tight. Get them while they last, we aren’t sure if we can keep getting them or not.

MercWorx Latalis

We just got a two different styles of the MercWorx Latalis auto knife in stock. These are extremely nice, handmade automatic knives. The “fit and finish” as I like to call it, is top notch. I especially like the carbon fiber inlays. They really pop out against the aluminum handles. The blade shape on the Latalis is a great shape for heavy duty work. It reminds me of the old Roman small knives they would carry for close in work. This is a large, heavy duty automatic knife. It has good action and locks up very tight. It is definitely a knife you should look at.

Sicilians are Coming Back

Good News to all of you who have been waiting. The Sicilian OTF knife is coming back. Our supplier just let us know they got a bunch in and we have them on their way to us already. We should have these entry level out the front knives back in stock by next Tuesday, the 30th of September. And. . . we are getting a bunch in with dark green handles also. Those should be fairly nice looking. I have seen the pictures of them and think they have a good look. So, be on the lookout for them.

Bradley Alias I Automatic Knife

Bradley Cutlery is a company of professionals. A while back, a group of industry experts got together and formed this company because they were dissatisfied with the auto knives that were currently on the market. They felt the knives available were either too expensive or not made well enough. Their goal, to produce high quality production automatic knives at reasonable prices. The Alias I is a great example of how they have succeeded.

The Alias I is a mid sized to large automatic knife that has all the right stuff. This knife is actually manufactured in the Benchmade plant. The knife functions and feels superb. Clean lines and no frill define it. The handle is made of T6 aircraft aluminum for maximum durability and the blade is constructed of S30V stainless steel. The materials are top notch. But best of all, when you get this knife in your hands, you can tell you are holding a great auto knife. It feels solid and when you begin to work it, you can tell it functions just as you would expect. I think Bradley has more than exceeded even their own expectations with this knife. Check it out, you won’t be sorry.

SPECIFICATIONS:

Weight: 3.8 oz Blade: 3.5″Overall: 8.3″Closed: 4.6″Thickness (without clip): .6″

Gerber PRESTO Spring Assisted Knives

Gerber has made a pretty good spring assisted knife for quite some time now. I think, in some ways, Gerber has a reputation that far exceeds the quality of their knives. This is not to say that all of their knives are bad. In fact, some of their knives are really good. For instance, they have and automatic knife, the Covert Auto, that I think is a fantastic knife. I also really like their PRESTO line of knives. These knives use the Gerber named F.A.S.T. system of spring assist. These knives have a rubber insert on the handle which actually feels pretty good in your hand. They open quickly and seem to withstand quite a bit of heavy use. These spring assist knives are fairly easy to use with one hand. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, every day knife in the spring assist class–the Presto knives are some you could consider with confidence.

SPECIFICATIONS:

Overall Length: 8.25″ Length Closed: 4.75″ Length of Blade: 3.5″ Weight: 5.1 oz. Blade Material: 440A stainless steel Handle Material: Cast aluminum with SoftGrip overmold Blade Style: Drop point Blade Type: Serrated edge MSRP

Wolverine Automatic Knife

We just got this automatic knife into stock. A mid-sized automatic knife, the Wolverine is well built and fast. You mash the button and the blade comes out in a hurry. The handle is nice to hold. It has a lot of texture on it and it also has the two indentations where your forefinger and middle finger can rest on the topside of the handle. Makes for a good grip. I also like the fact that the Wolverine auto knife is a no safety auto. With an indent where the button is to prevent accidental firing when the knife is in your pocket. This is a great automatic for a ridiculously low price. At under $20.00, you will be hard pressed to find a better made automatic knife.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Blade: 3 1/8″Overall: 7 1/2″Closed: 4 1/4″Blade Material: 440 Stainless SteelHandle Material: ZincSpring: 3 coil, temperedClip: Stainless Steel, Tip DownMade In Taiwan

And these knives stand up to almost whatever abuse you can throw at them. Check them out. If you want a Benchmade quality knife for just a little bit less $$$ consider one of their H&K knives.
