10 Knives with Bottle Openers

It’s been a long day. You finally made it down to the lake to have a few beers with your buddies. You’re ready to throw back a cold one when you realize no one has a bottle opener.

Sure, there are ways to open bottles without a dedicated opener, but using a bottle opener is quick, easy, and so satisfying.

To ensure you’re always ready for a good time, many knives feature a bottle opener. We’ve assembled a collection of some of the best.

1. Kershaw Shuffle

kershaw-shuffle

First up is the Kershaw Shuffle. This inexpensive folder has a dedicated opener built into the back of the knife. Its blade is 2.38 inches and made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. The Shuffle comes in a variety of colors to match up with your personality. This little knife is beloved by knife lovers of all types and acts as a great EDC.

2. DPx Gear HEST

RPDPHSX101

The DPx Gear HEST is another great option. This fixed blade has a 3.13-inch blade and green canvas Micarta handle scales. The blade is 1095 high carbon steel, and a notch on the spine of the blade acts as a bottle opener.

As a matter of fact, a number of DPx Gear knives feature bottle openers. Unlike the HEST, the HEFT 4 Assault has a bottle opener built into the butt of the knife. It’s a fixed blade with an extended tang and G10 handle scales.

3. Gerber Epic

gerber-epic

The Epic from Gerber is another fixed blade knife, only this one has a bottle opener integrated right into the handle. The blade is 3.45 inches long, and the knife itself is 7.3 inches long. The bottle opener actually gives the knife a little more length and a place for the back of your palm. It fits into a nylon sheath.

4. Buck Metro

More similar to a keychain tool than a fixed blade, the Buck Metro is a compact tool with a small blade and bottle opener.

Top 5 Titanium Spyderco Knives

The Native 5 Fluted Titanium photographed by the spydercollector

The Native 5 Fluted Titanium photographed by the spydercollector

Behold the wonders of titanium. This metal alloy has so many advantages in its favor—from superior corrosion resistance to excellent durability—that it’s a coveted material. Even though it’s heavier than other materials like carbon fiber, titanium is surprisingly lightweight for a strong metal. The amalgamation of all these characteristics makes titanium one hell of a material for knife handles.

No company has done a better job at making titanium handles than Spyderco. So, we decided to take a look at five Spyderco knives that expertly utilized titanium handles.

Spyderco Delica 4, Titanium Handle

spyderco-delica-4-titanium

Let’s kick things off with a classic: the Spyderco Delica 4. This iteration of the iconic model that turned the knife world upside down features a simple titanium handle with a bead-blasted matte finish. Its good-looking titanium handle probably takes a backseat to the Damascus blade with a core of VG-10, but the handle deserves some love.

Spyderco Native 5 Fluted Titanium

spyderco-native-5-fluted-titanium

For Spyderco, it’s not just enough to create a knife with a titanium handle. Spyderco has to go all out and give the titanium handle some life and personality. Take this version of the popular Spyderco Native 5, for example. This impressive knife boasts a finely machined fluted titanium handle that’ll knock your socks off.

10 Seriously Small Knives

9_54fef941653463.18531170

In this world of big-box stores and 128-ounce sodas, some say the bigger, the better. In the world of knives, however, that’s not always the case. Sure, you could get a truly massive folder like the Cold Steel Espada XL (which has a 7.5-inch blade) for hard-core tasks, but what about when you need to carry something light that can cut some twine or open a package.

That’s when smaller is better.

For those who want a lightweight knife that will slip unnoticed in any pocket or attach easily to a keychain, we searched our store for the smallest knives around. There are a lot of tiny knives out there, but these come with blade lengths around 1.5 inches and under.

Bear & Son Mini Executive Lockback

403056

Blade length: 1.5 inches
Overall length: 3.75 inches

The Mini Executive is a small gentleman’s folder that comes in a few different styles, but the one we’re looking at is the Bear & Son Cutlery Abalone Mini Executive Lockback. This slipjoint knife has a drop point blade that’s only 1.5 inches long with a nail nick to engage it. The handle material is a very handsome and elegant abalone.

Spyderco Bug

spyderco-bug

Blade length: 1.27 inches
Overall length: 2.9 inches

Spyderco makes some minuscule knives like the Ladybug and HoneyBee, but the Spyderco Bug is the tiniest of all. This cute little guy fits in the palm of your hand with a 1.27-inch blade. When engaged, the knife comes in at less than 3 inches long.

Best-Selling Swiss Army Knives at Knife Depot

Our look at the best-selling knives in different categories continues this week with the top-selling Swiss Army knives. Just like the previous entries into the best-selling knives, this is a general look at the knives our customers have been buying the most

This information is fluid and will change as time goes on. In fact, it has already changed. If you take into account the best-selling Swiss Army knives of the past few years, you’d see the Black Anodized SwissTool near the top, but since the item is no longer available, we’re not including it here.

This also takes into account some of the different variations. Here are some of the best-sellers.

5. Victorinox Huntsman

9_520947

The Huntsman is a pretty recent addition to the list. It’s hard to say why this one is on the list, except for the fact that it’s a solid SAK. This model is essentially a lighter version of the Camper with tools like a large blade, small blade, corkscrew, wood saw, scissors, and a few others. It only weighs 3.5 ounces.

4. Victorinox Tinker

Tinker

The Tinker is another one of those models with a small selection of tools. This 91mm SAK has similar tools as the Huntsman but without scissors. What gives the Tinker a leg up is the fact that it comes in a variety of colors, including blacksapphire, and red.

10 Ways People Have Tried to Sneak Knives on Planes

Click here for 20 more ways people have tried to sneak knives on planes.

Don’t try to take your knives on planes!

We know the restrictions can be pretty stringent and unnecessary (at one point the TSA was going to allow knives back on planes before people flipped out), but knives are not allowed on planes.

Not only will your knives get confiscated but you will also be pulled aside and maybe even charged, depending on the situation.

We’ve written about this before way back in 2012 when the TSA shared how someone tried to smuggle a knife inside a jar of mayonnaise, but the organization has only become more brazen in sharing the things they’ve found. The TSA is still reviled by most people, but their Instagram account is a must-follow to see what kinds of things people try to take onboard planes.

In honor of the impending holiday season, here are 10 ways people have tried to smuggle knives on planes. (This isn’t counting the concealed knives like belt buckle knives and comb knives—only regular knives hidden in different places. We’ll save concealed knives for another post.)

By the way, if you’re planning on flying this holiday season, here is a post on TSA knife rules and ways to prevent your knife from being taken.

1. Inside a shoe (hidden beneath the sole)

Apparently this dude tried to take two knives onboard the plane—a bullet knife and what looks to be a balisong. A cutout was made in the heel.

Best-Selling Assisted-Opening Knives at Knife Depot

Every few weeks, we like to reflect on the most popular knives here at Knife Depot. This information is fluid, meaning in a few weeks these may not be the same knives topping our best-sellers lists.

However, it does give a good indication as to what kinds of knives people are interested in the most these days. We’ve gone through a number of categories, including best-selling kukris, best-selling Spyderco Knives, and best-selling CRKT Knives, so we decided to take a look at assisted-opening knives.

Here are some of the best-selling assisted openers.

5. Kershaw Blur

9_513484

First up on the list is a veteran of the assisted opening world: the Kershaw Blur. The Blur and its cousin the Leek (spoiler alert: it’s next on the list!) really set the standard for assisted-opening knives. Ken Onion was one of the first designers to use an assisted-opening mechanism on his knives (using a device he calls the SpeedSafe mechanism).

The Blur is a hefty knife with a 3.38-inch drop point blade made from Sandvik 14C28N. It has a black aluminum handle and a tungsten DLC coating on the blade.

It makes this list because this includes the various types of Kershaw Blur variations, including the S30V version and the tanto with black-green handle version.

4. Kershaw Leek

9_538204

The Kershaw Blur and Kershaw Leek are always lumped together as two of the most influential modern knives around. What makes these great knives is the fact that they complement each other. Whereas the Blur is dark and stout, the Leek is bright and sleek.

The Leek uses the same patented SpeedSafe technology to make this EDC lightning quick. It has a 3-inch blade made from Sandvik 14C28N with a bead-blasted finish and a pure stainless steel handle. The knife is light and thin, making it an ideal EDC knife.

Top 5 Best-Selling Kukri Machetes at Knife Depot

outback

Machetes are among the most versatile and widely used tools in the world. In some regions, the machete is used as a household tool—chopping vegetables, cutting hair, doing yard work, etc.

As you can imagine, the widespread use of the machete has resulted in tons of variations. If you take a look at our Ultimate Machete Guide, you’ll notice at least 11 common types of machetes.

One of the most popular types of machetes is the kukri machete. Hailing from Nepal and neighboring countries, the kukri features a unique design with a high curved blade that’s mainly designed for chopping. However, it has a pretty sharp and strong point that also makes it useful for piercing. This is a tool that was historically used by the Nepalese military, but it’s now most commonly used as an everyday utility tool.

Because of its versatility and interesting look, the kukri machete has quickly become one of the go-to machetes in the United States. If you’re thinking about picking up one of these bad boys, here’s a list of the five best-selling kukri machetes at Knife Depot to help get your juices flowing.

5. Condor Tool & Knife Kukri Machete

Condor_Kukri_Machete_CTK490-13HC

In our machete guide, I pointed out that Condor Tool & Knife is not only a company with roots that date back to 1787 but it also specializes in outdoor tools like machetes. Condor TK really displays its talents with its iteration of the kukri. The Condor Tool & Knife Kukri Machete features a 13-inch 1075 carbon steel blade with a full tang that extends into the hardwood handle.

The butt of the handle is reminiscent of a parang, which helps keep your kukri from flying out of your hand during rigorous use. It comes with a black leather sheath.

4. Cold Steel Kukri Machete

9_533782

Here’s what Cold Steel has to say about the kukri: “There’s no single edged tool that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri.” Their version of the kukri is also 13 inches but uses 1055 carbon steel a polypropylene for its handle.

7 Knives With Carabiner Clips

The carabiner is a simple yet important tool that was first used back in 1911. The metal loop with a spring-loaded gate is widely used in rope-intensive activities like mountain climbing and window cleaning, but the tool has also been adapted over the years to accomplish smaller, less extreme tasks.

Aside from mountaineering and similar activities, the carabiner has become most commonly known for clipping keys to one’s belt loop.

Since these are becoming more and more common, the carabiner has begun to make it on knives (and vice versa). If you’re interested in attaching your knife to your bag or your keys to your knife, these knives with carabiners will do the trick. Note: Bear in mind that these aren’t designed for actual hard-core use.

Gerber Curve

GB000116

The Gerber Curve is a unique multi-tool with an interesting design and a clip resembling a carabiner. Its spring-loaded gate is a dead giveaway. The knife itself comes with a few tools, including a knife, screwdrivers, nail file, and more. The tools lock with a cool device.

Again, this isn’t something you’d want to use while rope climbing, but it is something you could clip to a bag or a belt loop.

Leatherman Crater C33

81WzLa90F9L._SL1500_

Leatherman made more of a proper knife with a carabiner than the Curve. The Leatherman C33 Crater features s 2.6-inch blade made from 420HC stainless steel with a glass-filled nylon sheath. The Crater has a proper liner lock that makes it a functional knife for harder tasks.

10 Video Game Swords You Can Actually Buy

You’re never too old for video games… or at least that’s what I tell myself. Video games allow you to explore worlds where the laws of physics need not apply, worlds where the impossible becomes possible, worlds that make you reconsider your own moral compass.

But, of course, one of the best aspects of games is the variety of weapons game designers envision. Because swords in video games are often impractical but thoroughly impressive, we decided to compile a list of video game swords you can own in real life.

Many places, including the folks over at Man At Arms, have recreated some of the best video game swords, but the ones we’re highlighting are those you can actually buy for a reasonable amount.

Check out these replicas.

1. Sword of Altair – Assassin’s Creed

f39bfdce9a3e55963036bd15223d7c26

Over the eight or so year’s since the very first Assassin’s Creed came out, the series has spawned a whopping nine games as well as a ton of supporting games. One of the assassin’s the game explores is Altair Ibn-La-Ahad, and this is the sword he wields. According to the game’s Wiki page about the sword, it features cross guards shaped like an eagle’s wings with a pommel in the shape of an eagle’s head.

This is an excellent replica of the sword, coming in at 31 inches in length with a 440 stainless steel blade. The sword boasts some nice flourishes that make it worthy of any collector or cosplayer.

2. Rebellion – Devil May Cry

TR0125-2

Devil May Cry was never a game on my radar. I nearly played the reboot, but my subscription to PS Plus expired. While I don’t have any special insight to share about the game, I do appreciate the iconic sword of Dante, the protagonist of the game. The large sword—dubbed the Rebellion—is a claymore with magical qualities.

Top 5 Best-Selling Spyderco Knives at Knife Depot

Spyderco is an institution in the knife industry. Even though they started off making knives without any care for aesthetic qualities, Spyderco knives are some of the most mimicked around.

People often ask me about the best or most popular model from Spyderco. Each Spyderco has its own attributes and qualities that may appeal to one person and not to another. I usually point them to our thorough article, which also has a list of the most iconic Spyderco knives. However, that doesn’t tell the full story.

Since people oftentimes speak truth through their wallet, I went into the sales of Knife Depot to look at the best-selling Spyderco models. Although this doesn’t mean they’re the best or most popular elsewhere, it’s a good indication as to what Spyderco knives people are looking to buy.

5. Spyderco Endura 4

9_419976

It’s no surprise the Endura 4 is in the top five. Not only did it make our list of most iconic knives ever but it’s also touted as an important and game-changing knife that defines the brand. The Endura, now in its fourth iteration, was released in 1990 and looked unlike many other knives back then. Along with the Delica (which only missed this list of best-sellers by a hair), the Endura remains one of Spyderco’s masterpieces.

4. Spyderco Tenacious

9_526575

Try to find a bad review of the Spyderco Tenacious. We’ll save you hours of searching and just tell you that there’s not much negative stuff out there. Spyderco can be polarizing, but they seemed to have found a sweet spot with the Tenacious. This knife is a budget EDC with a leaf-shaped blade, G-10 handles, and a liner lock.

3. Spyderco Military

9_540870

The Military was the other Spyderco that made it on our list of most iconic knives ever. This knife is the cornerstone of the Save and Serve lineup and remains one of the most copied knives around. Like some of the other models on this list, the Military comes in a few styles, including models with a black blade and camo handle scales.

Top 5 Best-Selling CRKT Knives at Knife Depot

Every now and again, we like to take a look at the best-selling knives here at Knife Depot to find out what models and designs are currently the most popular. While the best-sellers change pretty frequently, this is usually a good indicator of the types of knives people are reaching for.

We thought I’d be cool to share this information with you, so you can also see what knives people are picking up.

We broke this information down by brand to make it easier. Again, the best-sellers change often, but these are the current best-sellers from CRKT.

5. CRKT Onion Skinner

9_513388

Coming in at Number 5 is the Onion Skinner. This unique fixed blade was a previous Badass Knife of the Week honoree for its near perfect design. It took Ken Onion a couple of years to get this knife right—he even had it field-tested by hunters and taxidermists.

The skinning knife has an unusual shape, but the fact that it was tested and refined means its success has been proven. It has a Bohler K110 stainless steel blade and handle scales that are Twin-Fused with a Zytel core.

4. CRKT Endorser

1105-SKU-web-image_xlarge_536

The Endorser is a relatively new knife that’s a recent addition to the best-sellers. Released in 2013, the Endorser seemed like such an interesting knife that we made note. Here’s what we wrote about it a few years ago:

“This is a highlight because while the trend seems to be more innovative and unique designs (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), the Endorser is a back-to-the-basics straightforward folder that’s not without signature advances in knife technology.”

Top 5 Designs from Late Knifemaker Kit Carson

Kit CarsonLate last week, the knife world suffered a huge loss with the passing of legendary knifemaker Harold “Kit” Carson. Not only was Kit Carson one of the pioneers in the knife industry but he was also a retired master sergeant as well as a mentor and teacher to so many people.

Carson was probably best known for his work with CRKT, which he collaborated with on a few groundbreaking knives like the M16 and M4.

Although he was respected for his knives, one of Carson’s lasting legacies was his willingness to talk to anyone who needed help, had questions, or just wanted to chat. He would go above and beyond to help out.

I was recently trying to pinpoint the person that invented or popularized the flipper and stumbled upon a thread at BladeForums.com from 13 years ago and Kit Carson was kind enough to respond to the post by saying with the utmost humility that it was in fact CRKT and himself who made the flipper popular in today’s folder.

This is just one example of a countless ways Kit Carson would make a point to respond to people and have an open line of communication.

In honor of the knifemaker, we’re looking at 5 of his creations. Incidentally, all of the knives were picked up by manufacturers, but the pictures show his custom work taken directly from his website.

If you are inclined to help out, the family has requested donations be made to parkinson.org.

M4

Desert Ironwood

The Model 4 was Kit’s “flagship custom” (as he called it) because of its popularity. Even though the design was picked up by CRKT for the masses, it remained one of his most requested custom knives. It’s a solid EDC with a simple but reliable design.

5 Best-Selling Kershaw Knives at Knife Depot

Since 1974, Kershaw Knives has been making some of the best EDC pocket knives on the market. If you don’t believe me, just look at the numerous awards handed out to Kershaw every year at the BLADE Show.

If you’re not familiar with all the offerings of Kershaw Knives, we decided it’d be useful to serve up the five best-selling Kershaw Knives at Knife Depot. While this isn’t necessarily the all-time best-sellers, it is a good indication of some of the best knives they make.

5. Shuffle

Kershaw Shuffle

You might be curious as to why this little folder is one of our most popular… until you get it in your hands. The Kershaw Shuffle is a shapely knife that conforms to the hand and features a nice stubby 2.4-inch blade made of 8Cr13MoV steel. Part of what makes the Shuffle so appealing is its versatility and compactness. The ability to take this little guy anywhere and do nearly any everyday task you come across is huge.

As a bonus, the Shuffle also has a built-in screwdriver on the butt and a built-in bottle opener.

4. Clash

Kershaw Clash

Like the late Joe Strummer from The Clash, the Kershaw Clash is rebellious, influential, and working class. This assisted opener is a workhorse of a knife that’s known for being an affordable, all-purpose knife. With a blade length of 3.1 inches and a convenient flipper that opens the knife in a pinch, the Clash is a great knife to carry.

5 Best-Selling Case Knives at Knife Depot

Here they are.

5. American Workman Sod Buster

13007

Coming in at No. 5 is the Sod Buster from the American Workman family. This Sod Buster is a great knife that’s been in the Case family for decades and constantly gets praise from everyone who owns one. With a closed length of 4.63 inches, the Sod Buster is surprisingly large and dispatches nearly any task with ease. It features a blue synthetic handle and a polished skinner blade.

4. Amber Bone Medium Stockman

042

Next up is the Amber Bone Medium Stockman. The jigged Amber Bone on this 3.64-inch (closed) stockman takes center stage, highlighting how handsome these knives are. It comes with a clip, sheepsfoot and spey blade in Tru-Sharp Surgical Steel. Continue reading

10 Essential Things For Your Bug-Out Bag

It’s September and there should only be one question on your mind: Am I ready for a disaster?

7_258065You should ask yourself that because this month is National Preparedness Month, a campaign sponsored by FEMA that encourages Americans to prepare for emergencies.

While you may think it’s silly to prepare for something that will probably never happen like a zombie apocalypse or an alien invasion, some disasters are more common than you might think.

Natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes are no joke. I recently moved to Los Angeles and there’s a complacency that nothing is going to happen, but if that big earthquake does happens, countless people will not have access to resources or basic necessities. Even right now, flooding in Colorado has left more than a 1,000 people missing with many likely stranded.

Now that I have your attention, it’s time to start preparing. One of the most basic things you can do to prepare is create a bug-out bag. A bug-out bag is a lightweight survival kit designed to help you survive up to 72 hours in the event of an evacuation.

These are also useful for disasters that require you to stay indoors, such as a blackout or hurricane, because the contents will help you in nearly any situation. The key, however, is to be as light and compact as possible to make carrying the bug-out bag feasible.

Also, please be aware that while this is a good general guide, there are a ton of great sites out there that cover every single aspect of preparing for when SHTF (“stuff” hits the fan). I may leave out a few good tips or items, but this shouldn’t be your only guide when preparing for an emergency. Use this as a stepping stone for other research and resources.

With that out of the way, let’s get to the 10 essential pieces of gear you should have in your bug-out bag in the event of a disaster.

1. Water

145079

First and foremost is water. Food usually gets top bill on these lists, but water is far more essential because you can’t survive very long without it. It’s good to have a gallon of water for each person every day. Since that can be a hefty load, many prefer to carry a full water bottle along with a water purification system in case you run out and need to refill on the fly.

2. Food

7_389913
The next important thing is food. It may be your inclination to put some of your favorite foods in the bug-out bag, but it’s important to remember that only non-perishable foods should go in the bag. Switch out the food every now and then to prevent it from going bad. Some great food items to pack in your bag include dehydrated food and freeze dried foods. You can find some of these foods for sale at Perfectly Prepared.

Manly Groomsmen Gift Ideas for Your Buddies

Attending a wedding is not for the weak. It requires tons of patience, a lot of formality and huge amounts of self control. But fewer people suffer more than your groomsmen, who would probably rather be out walking their dog through the woods than walking your Aunt Bertha down the aisle. That’s why groomsmen gifts are a great way to honor your buddies for sticking by your side.

We all already know the traditional groomsmen gifts — the fancy pen, the fancy cufflink, the fancy flask — but those tend to be a bit too impersonal and become useless quickly. So if you’re looking for a way to show your friends how grateful you are for their dedication without sacrificing your manly bond, we’ve got you covered with these ideas.

Shaving kit

 

There are so many gifts your groomsmen will never use, like a silver pen or money clip, so buy them something they will use. Nothing says functional more than an old-fashioned shaving kit. Aside from the benefits of a classic shave, having a traditional wet shave will boost your groomsmen’s confidence and make them feel badass. One of the shave sets from Dirty Deeds Soaps comes in a wooden cigar box with beer soap, a badger brush and more.

Engraved pocketknife

 

333872

I’m sure you saw this one coming — we’re a knife blog, for Pete’s sake! — but engraved knives are a classy way to honor your buddies who would would rather be waiting for a deer to come into sight than waiting for a reception to start. The best part of personalized knives is that they can be customized and selected based on your friend’s attitude and preferences.

Four Best-Selling Gerber Knives

Gerber Gear has a long and storied history that spans back to the late 1930s when Joseph R. Gerber sold handmade cutlery. Gerber has grown into a prolific company that’s made its name with durable and innovative knives.

In this post, we’re going to take a look at some of the top selling Gerber knives.

Gerber LMF II

6_348171

The LMF II is arguably one of the best survival knives out there. Any list that documents the top 5 survival knives is simply inaccurate without the inclusion of the LMF II, so there’s no wonder why it’s one of Gerber’s top sellers.

Gerber EVO

6_62496

With its titanium nitride coated blade and sturdy framelock, the Gerber EVO is a functional and beautifully designed tool.

Top 5 Pocket Knife Gift Ideas

Everyone has been there. You must buy a close relative or distant friend something for the holidays, but you have absolutely no clue what to get. The best gift of them all is the pocket knife. Its versatility, long-lasting construction and feeling of tradition is unmatched by other items. Unfortunate (or fortunately, depending on how you think), there are tens of thousands of pocket knives available.

To simplify things for you, we’ve assembled this list of the five diverse pocket knives that make perfect gifts.

My Tighe by CRKT

If the person you’re giving a knife to is a sucker for sleek designs and the latest technology, nothing tops the new My Tighe. This knife is the creation of knifemaker Brian Tighe, who uses his knives for pretty much any hard-core thing you could think of. The quality of construction on this knife will blow any knife enthusiast or amateur away. It also boasts the latest technology, such as Torx fasteners, OutBurst assisted opening mechanism, Triple-Point serrated edges and more.

Even if none of these specs mean anything to you, you’ll fall in love with the My Tighe the minute you hold it. You might need to buy two, so you could keep one for yourself.

Top 5 Survival Knives to Give as Gifts

The holidays are known for a lot of things. We spend time with family, and we give each other gifts. We enjoy the cold weather, and we sense the magic. And of course we sometimes find ourselves in hard-core survival situations.

If you’re worried about a loved one who often finds himself alone in the wilderness, you can rest assured and make him happy when he opens his gift by giving him a rugged survival knife. If you don’t know which one to get, you’re in luck. These are the five best survival knives you can give as a gift.

KA-BAR USMC Tactical Knife

When you talk about a strong reputation in the world of survival knives, it’s impossible not to mention KA-BAR. This iconic all-around knife has been widely tested and used by the military since its early production during World War II. The fact that this knife was used in battle and for general use during wars underlines the durability. With its 7-inch razor-sharp blade, the KA-BAR USMC Tactical Knife will instill pride in anyone who receives this as a gift.

5 Best Throwing Knives for Holiday Gift-Giving

This holiday season, give the gift of a brand spanking new throwing knife set, which will warm the soul of even the most seasoned thrower.

Here are five throwing knives and knife sets that’ll really make a memorable impact this coming Christmas / Kwanzaa / Chanukah / Solstice!

Magnum by Boker Bailey 3-Piece Throwing Knife Set

Magnum by Boker Bailey

Your giftee might already have a few sets in their collection, but the Magnum knives by Boker Bailey are in a class of their own. In fact, they’re so badass that the school administration had to isolate the Magnums in their own separate building. These minimalist knives are perfectly balanced and just look brutal as they fly through the air. An avid knife thrower will love their versatility, as they are equally capable of hitting their targets with or without spin. With all of these features and more, these knives can make an addict out of anyone.
