Knife Life—Eye Candy

Our resident Blade HQ lifestyle photographer, Kurt, takes really rad pictures. When he gets his hands on a knife it’s his job to full geek out and show them only in the best light. You’ve probably seen his work on product pages, Instagram, and Facebook. To celebrate our love of knives we present Eye Candy, a series of posts putting together all the best shots to come out of the BHQ photography studio—AKA The Stood.

Chris Reeve Mnandi

Is there a better Gentleman’s pocket knife than the Chris Reeve Knives Mnandi? Carbon Fiber inlays compliment a satin finished CPM-S35VN blade and a titanium frame. This knife is the epitome of class. Some men celebrate with a Rolex on their wedding day, and some reward graduation with a fine pair of leather dress shoes. Me? I would prefer the Mnandi.

ESEE Knives 3, 4, 5, and Junglas

A camp or survival knife needs to be dependable above all else, because what good is your blade if it’s chipped, or even worse—pushed to the point of failure? ESEE Knives are famous for rugged construction and high quality materials. It’s also pretty neat that they are crafted right here in USA.

WE Knife Company

Bold and unapologetic, the WE Knife Co. Zeta is perfect for those that strive to be elegant and unique. Balancing modern art and design, Elijah Isham expertly mixes carbon fiber, titanium, and premium Bohler M390 steel into a refined and understated package.

Benchmade

Originally known in the 80’s as Bali-Song Inc., Benchmade still knows how to make a fabulous butterfly knife today. This flipper is the venerable 87, and it’s decked out with a bold wharncliffe blade and heavy titanium handle scales. It doesn’t matter if you’re a butterfly guy or not—a piece like this deserves a spot in any collection.

Andrew Hamilton showed up to interview at Blade HQ for a copywriter position with 3 knives in his pocket. His love for the outdoors, 3 years on a horse ranch, and strong taste for vintage clothing define his writing and his flow. He's got tattoos of all flavors from sailing ships to skulls, and he carries anything from a Manix 2 to a GEC Whaler. This guy's legit, folks. (bio by Ben)

  1. PLEASE make a article on how to remove corrosion from a 8cr13mov knife. Please I’m freaking out about my Kershaw Dimension!!!!

    • I recommend starting out with a kneaded eraser you can pick up from any art store. If that doesn’t work, a little WD-40 and steel wool would be the next step up. Once you’ve got your knife all cleaned up of rust, apply some oil. If you use your knife for food prep make sure you use a food-safe oil like mineral. If you don’t use your knife with food, we sell a great product called Frog Lube. An oiled knife won’t rust!
