Innovative Grip: Böker Plus Pogn DCW Tactical Knife

boker-plus-tactical-knife

Venturing out into the wilderness requires equipment, and that’s a little sad. Humans just can’t, like their animal counterparts, survive too well in nature when stripped of their tools. We are, at least, much smarter than they are and we’ll take the intellectual trade-off anytime, especially if it means getting to carry cool knives like the Böker Plus Pogn DCW Tactical Knife. It features an innovative perforated grip that allows you to wrap paracord and create a complete grip that’s as wide or narrow as you’d like. The fact that most of the cord is located inside the tang also means less wear.

The entire thing is about 8 inches long and weighs 138g. It’ll cost you 89€, or roughly $112USD.

Spreading Cold Butter Just Became Possible

butterup

There are few things more frustrating than ripping a piece of bread apart with a chink of cold, hard butter. Solutions normally range from a quick stint in the microwave, to leaving it out of the fridge overnight, to using a newfangled bodyheat butter knife. This particular solution does seems to have them all beat, however. The ButterUp Knife has a string of grating holes that turn that hard butter into easily spreadable ribbons of salty dairy fat. Just run the knife atop your block of butter, and spread as you normally would.

It’s around $11, although you’ll now have to wait until March 2015 to get yours since the Kickstarter went through the roof and all the earlier batches are now sold-out.

Want: Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block

x-wing-knife-block

We’re going to go ahead and speculate that the Star Wars franchise will print money until the end of time. Not only is there yet another movie instalment in the works, but the onslaught of merchandise is seemingly never ending. Just look at the above Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block. It’s awesome, and we want it, even though we feel guilty wanting to give even more money to people who already have too much. Oh well, the tug on our consumerist heart is strong with this one, and we’ll have to give up about $120 to get it. It comes with 5 knives: a Cook’s knife (335mm), a Bread knife (320mm), a Carving Knife (325mm), a Utility knife (235mm), and a Paring knife (195mm). This ships in August and is only available for pre-order now.

This Knife Is A Gun

Arsenal-Gun-Knife

Options. Everything is life is about options, isn’t it? And about the choices you make given the options you have. For example, you have this mean looking blade in your hand. You could use it to stab or cut your aggressor. But you have another option: shoot! It’s not an option you normally have when wielding a blade, which is why it caught our attention. It loads six .22 caliber bullets, and is fired via a special trigger. It’s overkill, sure, but it’s pretty badass.

We don’t know much else about it, other than maybe it’s imported by Arsenal Firearms in Las Vegas and allegedly sells for $2,000. Also something or other about being made for Russian armed forces, but we can’t confirm this as fact. Still, now you know this exists.

Oh, and we would make some kind of joke about bringing a knife to a gun fight if we had any comedic talent.

This Is A Pretty Cool Looking Fantasy Blade

Fantasy-Knife-Display-14.5Overall

You can’t do much else with this thing than to show it off to people, at least if you hope to stay out of trouble. But the “Death Stalker” Fantasy Blade will sure get some “oohs” and “aahhs” from the people who might be into these types of things. Measuring 14.5 inches long, there are “two full tang black stainless steel blades [to] form the sides and claws. [There’s a] metal tail with stainless steel stinger blade. [And a] rubber coated handle and metal forearm plate. Includes wood display stand.” It’s also not very expensive, coming in at $50.

Damascus Steel Pocket Knife Is Stunning

pocket-knife-damascus-steel-1

If you’re going to get a pocket knife and have the budget, why not get something that looks ridiculously good at the same time? The above Damascus Pocket Knife is allegedly made from 120 layers of Swedish rose stainless damascus steel. We say alleged because there is no consensus that modern Damascus Steel making methods produce the exact metal from historic times. But there’s no denying that it’s similar to the famed metal, is certainly pretty to look at, and is very likely to be as much if not stronger than the older stuff. Aside from the special metal, there’s a carbon fiber handle and the entire thing measures 4 1/8″ folded, and 6 7/8″ open. But beauty has a price, and this knife will ding your account to the tune of $500.

Gerber’s Pocket Knife That Doesn’t Look Like A Knife At All

gerber-knife

Carrying a cutting tool in your pocket can definitely be practical. Stuck upside down in your car after an accident? Cut the seat belt. Bear in a cage got you by the T-shirt? Cut that shirt to shreds. A pocket knife is great! What’s better? A sheathed knife that’s so stealthy it doesn’t even look like one at all. Gerber’s Daily Carry Hook Knife is a 2 inch stainless steel hook blade that fits securely around a finger, much like a ring. Press your thumb against “the thumb grip and you’ve got a solid hold that won’t budge when you put a bit of power behind a cut.” Don’t have an emergency, life-saving, knife-related situation? That’s ok, you can use the blade on envelopes, an annoying retail package or that box the UPS guy just dropped off. At $11, it’s a no-brainer.

These Are Some Awesome, Artful Knives

pearce-knives-5

Logan Pearce is a third generation knife maker. His grandfather made a name for himself forging knives out of railroad spikes, and although Logan carries the tradition still, he also makes them out of everyday objects like wrenches, pieces of rebar, and even heavy duty bolts. Granted knifemaking isn’t exactly cutting edge tech (see what we did there?), we kind of like Logan’s work and think he deserves some attention. Not that he’s not getting any to start with as there is a 3 week waiting time for any new orders. With prices ranging from $20 to $350, you can own a handmade blade no matter what your budget is.

If you’re wondering why we like them so much, head on over after the break for more pictures.

Manticuda Knife Is Created With Some Serious Cutting In Mind

It’s hard to look at the Manticuda and think that it was created with anything other than killing in mind. Featuring a pistol grip which allows you to hold it in a more natural fashion, its forward thrusts will carry more impact as they are aligned with the forearm axis and leave the wrist straight. In other words, you can punch-stab. The blade itself

features a wide blade design to create large, gaping (i.e. noticeable) wounds to quickly disable someone, as in a weapon retention engagement. The double-edges give the knife twice the cutting perimeter/potential with no unusable/wasted space on the blade periphery. Blade cutouts reduce weight and serves various utility functions such as a Nail Puller, Bottle Opener, or other prying tasks.

There’s an argument to be made about self-defense, and we suppose the Manticuda could scare would-be assailants away. And it would definitely do more than disable them if you end up having to use it. Now, we don’t condone violence nor are we in the business of promoting products intended for killing. But we also believe in an adult’s ability to make his own decisions and carry something as badass as the Manticuda without going around maiming people.

It’s $275.
