CRKT To Release Three New Climber’s Knives

When you’re on the side of a cliff a couple thousand feet above the ground, nothing is more important than a strong knife… well, maybe a secure foothold is a little more important but a solid knife is still vital.

2406-niad-on-carabiner-WEB_large8_761That’s why CRKT is releasing an array of new knives optimized for hard-core climbers: the Bivy, Niad, and Hyphenate.

Because CRKT wanted to do things the right way, the company enlisted the help of someone who knows a thing or two about climbing—Hans Florine.

Pretty much all of Florine’s accomplishments leave me with sweaty palms, but his ultimate claim to fame is breaking the record for speed climbing the Nose route on El Capitan in Yosemite. Florine ascended 2,900 vertical feet in 2 hours, 23 minutes, and 46 seconds.

This new line was created in response to Florine’s desire for reliable and effortless tools. Here’s what he said in one of CRKT’s press releases:

The first knife we have available is a doozy. The SCHF45 is a massive Bowie-style chopper that’s nearly 16.5 inches long with a hefty 10.35-inch blade. A video testing the prototype shows just what this beast can do.

Schrade SCHA9M Mini Landshark

Next up is the Mini Landshark. The larger iteration of the Landshark proved popular, and this mini version makes it a viable EDC option that’s legal to carry in most places. The knife itself has killer angles and an eye-catching design. The blade is 2.16 inches and uses the M.A.G.I.C. assisted opener.

New 2015 Knives from CRKT

Update: We originally wrote this post way back in January, but CRKT recently unveiled a few more 2015 mid-year years at the BLADE Show in Atlanta. You can find the new ones at the bottom.

It’s January and you know what that means… it’s time to take a look at the new knives coming your way. The SHOT Show (where companies are showcasing new knives) is currently underway, but many companies have already released the new catalogs.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look at the new knives across various brands. We’re kicking things off with the 22 new knives from CRKT.

BT-70 (Designed by Bob Terzuola)

7460-BT-70-open-front-WEB_xlarge_738

If you’re not familiar with Bob Terzuola, the new BT-70 is the perfect way to get acquainted. Terzuola is one of the fathers of tactical knives and this collector’s piece showcases his feel for the tactical folder. It has a stonewash finish, G-10 handle scales with his dragon logo, and a blade length of 4.03 inches.

Argus Black

7030K-Argus-Black-open-front-WEB_xlarge_709

The Argus is a spring-assisted knife with the Outburst assisted opening mechanism. Designed by Matthew Lerch, the Argus Black has an aluminum handle and a 3.55-inch blade with black corrosion resistant coating.

No Time Off

5350-no-time-off-open-front-WEB_xlarge_701

Designed by Flavio Ikoma, the No Time Off is a burly folder that’s aimed at heavy-duty tasks. It has a waffle iron traction grip handle and a 2.99-inch blade that locks into place using the Ikoma Locking System.

Saker

3760-saker-open-front-WEB_xlarge_720

The Saker is an interesting bushcraft knife by Abe Elias, with its scandi grind and 1075 carbon steel blade that’s about 4.5 inches. The handle is made from Walnut.

G.S.D. (Get S**t Done)

CRKT GSD

With a name like G.S.D. (which stands for Get S**t Done), you’d better expect a knife that’s tough, reliable, and functional. Check, check, and check. It has a classic industrial look and can handle heavy-duty tasks.

Hunt’N Fisch

CRKT Hunt'N Fisch

We’re starting to get to the puns. The Hunt’N Fisch plays off designer Larry Fischer’s name and is a fixed blade hunting knife with tons of jimping and some interesting grooves on the spine.

It’s designed to be an all-around hunting and fishing knife with a blade of 2.99 inches made of 8Cr13MoV steel. It has G-10 scales on the handle.

New 2015 SOG Specialty Knives

Yes, we’re already in April, but the sheer amount of new knives this year means we’re still showcasing them on the blog. The good news is that most of these knives are now on the market, so you don’t have to wait.

This week, we’re looking at the array of new products from SOG Specialty Knives.

SOG Fillet

First up are two new fillet knives: a 6-inch fillet and a 7.5-inch fillet. The steel is 5Cr15MoV. They come with hard-molded nylon sheaths.

Check out Emerson’s new Zombie Commander Folder

Tired of zombie-centric products and media? Neither are we.

The latest knife to get a makeover for the zombie apocalypse is the Commander from Emerson Knives.

To be clear, the original Commander is a truly badass knife. Winner of the Best Overall Knife of the Year at the blade show, the knife is battle-tested and designed with performance in mind. The Zombie Commander is essentially the same, except for a few minor changes.

The Zombie Commander comes in two versions: Zombie Green and Midnight Zombie.

Here’s what the Zombie Green version looks like.

Commander-Zombie-Green-Front1

And here’s the black on black Midnight Zombie.

Commander-Zombie-Black-Back1

Both knives are available for a limited run and will feature the Zombie Eradication Team stamp on the blade. Just like the original Commander, the knife boasts Emerson’s patented wave opener on the 3.75-inch blade made from 154CM stainless steel.

New 2015 Condor Tool & Knife Products

Yes, we’re deep into the year, but that’s not going to stop us from showing you some of the new knives of 2015. We’re continuing with new products from Condor Tool & Knife.

There’s not as a robust offering of new products as some of the other brands, but the 2015 products from Condor TK are definitely worth a look.

Final Frontier

60023_725x0

We’re kicking things off with the Final Frontier. This is a nice fixed blade with a 4-inch blade that has a Scandi grind. The blade itself has epoxy black powder coating. Hollow rivets hold together the ergonomic handle made of Micarta. At the butt of the knife is a smashing pommel.

It comes with a sheath.

Primitive Bush Knife (Matt Graham edition)

60033_725x0

The Primitive Bush Knife is a collaboration between Condor TK and survivalist Matt Graham. Using his experiences living off the land, Graham designed this knife for outdoor adventures. Its 8-inch blade is made of 420HC steel.

It has a hardwood handle and comes with an interesting handcrafted leather sheath that’s supposedly more like a pouch.

Mini Duku Parang Machete

60955_725x0

Next up are the two Mini Duku Parang Machetes. Both machetes feature blades made of 1075 high carbon steel with a natural finish and boast hardwood handles.

New 2015 Knives from Buck

We’re still going through the new knives you’ll see this year. Today, we’ve got some products from Buck Knives, including its first automatic knife.

616 Buck Ops Boot Knife

616 Buck Ops Boot Knife

This boot knife, with its 154 CM steel blade and black G10 handle, is designed for easy accessibility. It comes with a leather sheath that has a plastic liner to be used as a neck knife if desired. The sheath is highly versatile.

Open Season Series

BU0537RWS

We’re bundling these knives together because they complement one another. The new series includes a folder, skinner, boning, caping, and small-game knife. The knives have either S30V or 420HC steel blades and a handsome rosewood handle.

PakLite Elite

0135SSSVP2-B

This is a set of new knives: a caper and boning knife. Both of them are constructed with S30V steel and boast a minimalist design for lightweight and easy carry. They fit into a nylon sheath.

898 Impact

BU0898BKSa

One of the biggest additions to Buck is its first automatic knife. It uses S30V steel for the blade, and springs open by sliding a button. The MSRP on the Impact is $220.

294 Momentum

294 Momentum

This and the next knife go together because they’re both made for quick deployment with one hand.

New 2015 Benchmade Knives

Yes, we’re already two months into the year, but there’s still plenty of new knives to admire and covet. We’ve gone through new Spyderco and CRKT knives, so let’s continue with the new products from Benchmade.

Benchmade separates its knives into different series, such as the Black Class, Gold Class,  Hunt Series, and others. This year they’re only releasing knives from the Blue Class and the Black Class.

The Blue Class is more working class, blue-collar knives that are designed for everyday use but still boast quality construction and materials. The Black Class is aimed at professionals, especially those in the military and public safety fields.

Let’s start with the new knives from the Blue Class.

Benchmade 665 APB Assist

benchmade-665-apb-assist-axis-lock-with-154cm-steel-1

One of the highlights of the new knives is the 665 XAS, which is a push-button Axis-Assist knife. Basically, it’s an assisted push-button knife that also requires the buttons pushed for the blade to be closed. It’s inching ever so close to a switch blade.

The blade uses 154CM steel and the handle has a blue and black G-10 handle.

Benchmade 761 Ti Monolock

761

The real highlight of the 761 is the machined 6AL-4V titanium handle with its titanium tip-down clip. It uses a monolock on the 3.73-inch M390 steel blade.

Benchmade 484-1 Nakamura AXIS

bm_484.1

The original 484 came out last year, but this is a newer and more updated version of the knife. It uses CPM-S90V super premium steel on the 3.08-inch blade (as opposed to M390 on the original). It has an AXIS lock and a contoured carbon fiber handle with stainless steel liners.

Benchmade 153 Jungle Bolo

BM153BK

Benchmade doesn’t typically venture too far from its folders and AXIS locks, but these two large choppers show the company is willing to explore new territory.
