Kershaw Copper Natrix knife

Kershaw Natrix Carbon Fiber Folding Knife Review – Now in Copper!

Ever fall for a really good-looking girl who’s taken and then find out she has a sister that’s just as hot? That’s pretty much how I feel about the Kershaw Natrix Carbon Fiber. It’s inspired by the high-end Zero Tolerance 0770, and it is one sexy knife. If you’re into copper, Kershaw also introduced the […]

Buck 112 Auto Elite Pocket Knife Review

Buck 112 Auto Elite Pocket Knife Review

Founded in 1902, Buck Knives have been around well over 100 years. I remember staring longingly at their offerings in the knife case at our local outdoor store and several came home over the course of my teenage years. I’m not quite as fit as I was back in those days, but I still appreciate […]

Southwire Hawkbill

Southwire EdgeForce Hawkbill Pocket Knife Review

Regular readers know that we geek out (as the kids say) over pocket knives. While we use most of our tools only on the job, we carry our knives all the time. The day you forget your knife is the day you realize how often you actually use it. Although the drop point blade is probably the […]

Gerber Flatiron Folding Knife

Gerber Flatiron Folding Knife Review

We all like knives around this office, and when new models come in for review, we all usually stop what we’re doing to look at the new stock. Generally speaking, however, we hop back to work pretty quickly. While each folding knife design has its own set of unique qualities, they generally don’t vary all […]

Southwire Pocket Knife: EdgeForce D2 Steel For a Great Price

Southwire Pocket Knife: EdgeForce D2 Steel For a Great Price

Southwire might not be the first name that comes to mind when you’re looking for a new knife. They recently expanded with their EdgeForce lineup and there are definitely some points worth talking about. Each new Southwire pocket knife is very different from the other but they do have one thing in common: D2 steel blades. […]

Klein Folding Knives

Klein Spring-Assisted Pocket Knife 44223

Klein is expanding their selection of folding knives as they move forward in product development. What’s new about the Klein Spring-Assisted Pocket Knife is the spring assist part of the design. While we’ll certainly go into more detail about that, it’s more than just how the knife opens that makes or breaks it. In a […]

Kershaw Atmos

Kershaw Atmos Lightweight Folding Knife Review

As a fan and frequent user of pocket knives, I’ll admit that I’ve become a bit of a knife-snob over the years. It’s not that a lower-cost knife won’t do, but it becomes more of an issue surrounding the knife’s design, function, and quality that will make or break the deal for me. So, when […]

Kershaw Agile

Kershaw Agile Opens Up Options

Obviously, some knives use better quality materials, and some knives function better than others. But, does the knife I’m carrying cut what I need it to cut? Do the folding mechanisms feel like they can handle just a bit of abuse without falling apart? Is the knife comfortable in my pocket? Is the knife affordable? […]

Klein Tools Electrician's Pocket Knife With Phillips Screwdriver

Klein Electrician’s Pocket Knife With Phillips Screwdriver Review

You probably know we’re big fans of knives considering every member of our Pro team carries one. It’s the folding flipper in particular that we turn to for an EDC, or Every Day Carry, knife. Most people we talk to find once they start carrying one, they really need it only about twenty times a […]

Zero Tolerance 0220 Video Review

Zero Tolerance 0220 Video Review

The Zero Tolerance 0220 is a knife from a relatively new name on the scene – Jens Anso. This is a beefy design with a thicker handle and blade than most of my ZT knives. While I wouldn’t use a premium knife like this to pry things on the jobsite, it’s certainly more capable than […]
