The famous red knife company, Victorinox, has come out with a new knife aimed at the wine and cheese lovers. The Swiss Army Cheese Master ($38) will take your picnic game to the next level. The Cheese Master has 6-functions; a serrated blade, a slotted blade with fork tip, a corkscrew, tweezers, a toothpick, and a key ring. ...

Imagine that, an electric carving knife that looks like a mini-chainsaw. Why didn’t I think of that? This bad boy, the Mighty Carver, is great for carving the Christmas/Thanksgiving turkey and is sure to be a conversation starter. Not only does it look awesome, but it also has an ergonomic handle and removable stainless steel blades. You know you want one. Get it

The team at Fulcrum Knives in San Francisco have launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new nano blade knife. The Fulcrum Eclipse Knife is unique in that it starts off as a coin shape when closed and then transforms to a little knife. From watching the video it looks a bit precarious to open and close. Might make a good little knife to stash in a  backpack pocket or the glovebox of your car....

Remember the winner of the “most innovative knife” from the 2004 Blade Show? Yeah, me either but this is one cool knife. This knife is quite a conversation starter and even a deal at under $40. Originally designed by Ed Van Hoy as an everyday carry knife with portability and precision in mind. The knife blade swivels out sideways which is very different from most knives. It has an ambidextrous clip, a stainless steel blade, and a special locking...

Start off with a wildly popular knife series, the Kershaw Leek, and add on a Sandvik 14C28N/D2 composite blade and you have another winner. The Kershaw Leek 1660CB ($65) is an assisted opening knife with a very cool composite blade, you can see a wavy copper line running across the blade. The cutting edge is a durable D2 while the spine is Sandvik 14C28N. You get the best of both steel types. On the edge is a high-carbon, high-chromium D2 steel capable of taking and...

This beautiful knife started off its life as a bunch of spent batteries (mostly). This talented blacksmith, with tons of time on his hands, recycles old batteries and an old Maglite flashlight (for the handle) into an amazing knife. Video of this batteries to knife metamorphosis after the break. (more…)

At first glance I couldn’t help but think this was another infomercial type kitchen gadget. After reading a batch of positive reviews I realize that people who purchased this circular rolling knife really seem to like it. This Chef’s Innovation Circular Rolling...

I love a good every day carry (EDC) knife. I guess it is like purses or shoes for other folks. This Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) K270GXP Homefront Knife ($89) features the ability to disassemble the knife without any tools (video after the break). The CRKT Homefront Knife was designed by Ken Onion and features a WWI vintage look, a Field Strip Technology, an AUS 8 steel blade, and 6061 aircraft grade aluminum handles....

Two things I like very much. Flashlights and knives. This Nestsun Tactical Flashlight Knife ($15) is fairly priced and has pretty good reviews as well. The flashlight is powered by a rechargeable lithium 18650 battery and uses a 250lm cree LED. There are three lighting options (high, low, and flashing), an adjustable zoom ring, and an expected...

Ever heard of Opinel knives? Yep, me neither but it turns out they have been making great EDC knives  in France since the late 1800’s. This yellow (or grey) handled beauty adds a new trick to an otherwise traditional knife in the form of two screwdriver bits. The bits are nestled on the sides of the handle and fit in the end for use. The Opinel N Degree9 DIY Knife is a steal at just $26 here. With...
