The new Tiger-Stripe Blur features a 3.38-inch drop-point, recurve blade for efficient multi-tasking. DLC coating is applied in a process called Physical Vapor Disposition (PVD), which permanently deposits a thin metal coating on the blades, making the new Blur’s tiger-striped coating highly scratch-resistant. Under the tiger striping is high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel. The Tiger-Stripe Blur is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed operation opening. A locking liner secures the blade safely open during use. Although a good-sized knife, it’s still a lightweight carry thanks to its 6061-T6 anodized aluminum handle. Trac-Tec inserts in the handle provide an extra-secure grip in a wide variety of environmental conditions. To learn more, call 503-682-1966 or visit kaiusaltd.com.

This blued knife—available in scandi, saber, hollow, and calvary grinds—features a 4-inch long, 0.23-inch thick 1095 flat ground blade with a 4.75-inch handle with brass-pinned micarta scales. This knife is available in scandi, saber, hollow, and calvary grinds. It is meant to be all-purpose, though slightly more geared toward the tool end of use than personal defense. However, with their relatively straight edge and modified clip point, it penetrates easily and leaves a ridiculously deep slash wound. This is definitely a belt/body knife, to be kept close rather than in the pack, and thus less likely to be lost/forgotten. To find out more, visit calvaryknives.com or call 202-492-8914 .
