Boker USA® is always designing knives that are way ahead of the time. These logo knives are examples of their futuristic thinking. The Urban Trapper Tanto 01BO721 doesn’t look like a pocket knife, so it blends in with the urban style. The pocket clip is positioned so that the knife does not stick out of your pocket.
The unique curve of the whole knife when open, is a new design from Chad Los Banos of the CLB Kerambit 01BO580. It has a carabiner on the end of the handle so you can carry it on a belt loop, or on your backpack. Chad is a Hawaiian police officer, so he definitely knows what features are needed in a pocket knife.
SpeedSafe®. This is the trademark for their reliable assisted-opening mechanism. Once you start to open the knife with the flipper or thumb stud, the spring helps it along. Its function is smooth and dependable.
Flipper. The finger flipper at the base of the blade tang make opening a breeze. It works along with the SpeedSafe® to give you a smooth experience. The flipper has another benefit when the knife is open, and you are using it. It protects your index finger from sliding into the blade.
Frame Lock. Most Kershaw® knives have a frame lock or a liner lock. This provides a safe mechanism to keep the blade from retracting on you.
Personalization. Besides engraving your logo, Kershaw® can personalize each knife with the name of each recipient. Your employees will love you for that.
Have you ever broken the blade of your pocket knife? Was it because you used it as a pry bar? This sort of damage is never covered by a warranty. Now we have an answer to this type of accident. It is a large pocket knife (4 3/4″ closed), and comes with a pocket/belt clip.
These engraved Kershaw knives come with a built-in pry bar at the end of the handle. Now you don’t have to jeopardize your blade when you need to pry something apart. This heavy duty attachment will easily do the job for you.
Here are the Best Assisted-Open Pocket Knives all in one place. All 2 dozen of them. Different knife manufacturers make knives that are easy to open. Once you start to open one of the assisted-open knives, it takes it the rest of the way. These are not switch-blades. These are much safer and easier to use. The best feature is, you only need one hand to operate them. The mechanism that Kershaw uses their own “Speedsafe” system.
Here are my 2 favorites. One by Kershaw, and the other one by Kutmaster….
Some Kershaw knives are made in the USA, and some are made overseas according to the rigid specifications of the Kershaw-USA team.
The special feature of some of the engraved Kershaw knives is the SpeedSafe® opening mechanism. It allows you to quickly and easily open the knife with one hand. You just push on the thumbstud or pull on the flipper. The knife will open the rest of the way with ease. This is great if your parachute is caught in a tree, and so are you, and you have only one free hand. Even if you are in a less dangerous situation, the SpeedSafe® makes your life easier.
CRKT (Columbia River Knife and Tool) started making knives in 1994, but has surpassed most knife companies by creating some innovative designs. Here are 4 of their best pocket knife designs in 2018.
CRKT employs some dedicated knife designers from around the world. That is why they are competing with Kershaw and Kutmaster (Utica) for some great pocket knife designs. Those two companies have been around much longer, and have strong reputations in the knife industry.
