That’s right; we have even more knives to show you. And this isn’t even all of it. All of us over here at Blade HQ have been working tirelessly to get all of this SHOT Show content up for you, and it’s going to be pretty busy over here for the next week or so, too. This will be my last SHOT post this time around, but be sure to check out our YouTube channel, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media accounts for more SHOT content.
Here are more blades for you to take a look at—this list doesn’t cover every knife from every manufacturer, but it does cover quite a lot. Below you’ll find 2014 stuff from ESEE, Brous Blades, Boker, SOG, Buck, Emerson, DPx Gear, Ka-Bar, and Protech (listed in no particular order).
The ESEE-CM6 is a Terrill Hoffman design. The knife has a sharpened swedge for enhanced penetration and a Micarta handle for secure gripping. It also has a 1095 steel 5.88-inch blade with a textured powder coating, and it comes to 11.13 inches overall.
The Bionic Flipper combines a lot of functionality into a compact size. These lightweight blades have aluminum handles, so they come to 2.50 oz. They utilize the Brous Blades proprietary ball bearing pivot system, which gives the knives smooth, solid action. Something unique about these Brous knives is that they come in a variety of colors—there’s even a pink handle in the mix. All the blades on the different models have D2 steel and a hollow grind, but there is one that features an acid-washed blade, and one other that has a black Cerakote finish.
Here are the other colors and finishes available:
The Protech Rockeye fixed blade is an adaptation of Les George’s custom design. The knife is 8.5 inches long overall, and has a 4-inch blade. The knife features G-10 handles and comes with a nylon sheath. The Rockeye is available with a few different handle colors and Cerakote finishes. Take a look:
(This is only a partial list of the new knives from Boker.)
Boker Plus Griploc
The Boker Plus Griploc features a new and exciting design from Grant and Gavin Hawk. The knife has a handle that is made up of several parts, and it will hold the blade open as long as you’re holding and putting pressure on it. This is made possible by the unique lever arm mechanism. However, you can also keep the blade open permanently by sliding over the safety lock at the end of the handle. To close the blade, release the pressure you’re putting on the handle (or slide the safety back in place). The Griploc has a 3.5-inch blade, a reversible tip-up pocket clip, and an aluminum handle with a stainless steel frame. Available with a satin plain or black plain blade.
The Arctos XL Anso is a Jens Anso design. The handle is made from blasted canvas Micarta, and it provides good gripping. This knife also features an N690BO stainless steel blade, titanium frame, liner lock, and a a 3.5-inch hollow, stonewashed blade.
