VZ No.2 Tactical G-10 Pencils

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

The VZ No.2 Tactical G-10 Pencils are a great addition to your EDC kit. They are both lightweight and look like the real thing. They’re hand made in the USA from solid G-10, making them damn near unbreakable and invisible to metal detectors. They might look like a real pencil, but don’t expect to write an essay with one. At least not in lead.


RMJ Tactical S13 SHRIKE

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

The S13 SHRIKE is one of RMJ Tactical’s most popular models due to its 13″ handle being a smidge shorter than the SHRIKE’s original 15″ which makes it easier to swing in confined spaces like for breaching or extraction.

The 1075 Carbon Steel head features a 3” forward facing edge combined with a 3″ distal tapered spike that can be used for digging, shattering tempered glass, breaching windshields, penetrating sheet metal, hacking through concrete and wood or even breaking chains and hardened padlocks. In fact, the blade will also cut electrical wire. To this end, it has a rubber over molded handle. The butt end of the grip features a cap that screws off to gain access to a small storage compartment. The 13 SHRIKE features a Tungsten Cerakote finish for corrosion and wear resistance and a low visibility look. Included is a molded, bottom-eject kydex sheath and low-ride M.O.C. straps.

Offered with Black, Green or Coyote handle.

Design Your Own Everyday Carry Knife With Gerber Custom

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

PORTLAND, OREGON (March 09, 2020) – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of knives and multi-tools, today launched a new customization program featuring several of the brand’s best-selling knives. Made in Portland, Ore., the Fastball, StrongArm, Sharkbelly and US-1 will be among the first knives customers can design using a robust library of lasermarks, handle materials, patterns and blade shapes.

“At Gerber, we know better than anyone that pocket knives are personal. We carry them everyday, and both craftsmanship and utility are paramount. Gerber Custom empowers users to take part in the creation process, pairing the precise engineering and reliable quality of our bestselling knives with a unique aesthetic,” said Todd Bischoff, creative director at Gerber.

Knife makers curate their experience by choosing between customization and personalization. Customization offers an infinite combination of handle materials, colors, patterns and blade shapes with hundreds of illustrations, like landscapes, military insignias, flora and fauna, and more. Personalization offers visitors lasermarked illustration and personal text in a variety of fonts.


While the options for customization are endless, the price reflects Gerber’s commitment to providing premium, highly functional tools at an honest value. All of Gerber’s customized and personalized knives are made, assembled, and lasermarked at their headquarters in Portland.

“A person’s daily carry knife is nearly part of their identity – it says something about them,” said Karrson Koivisto, product manager for knives and cutting tools at Gerber. “A knife’s design and functionality are foundational, but layering on the capacity to select how every single component looks takes great products to the next level. That’s what Gerber Custom is about—helping consumers step up their daily carry in a way that authentically suits them.”

Gerber Custom, newly opened in March, can be found at www.gerbergear.com/custom. To date, the Fastball is available for customization and the StrongArm, Sharkbelly, and US-1 are available to personalize, with more products scheduled for later this year.

Introducing the WESN Henry

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

With a 2.35” blade and a 3” handle, the WESN Henry is a modern take on the classic slip-joint pocket knife. With Titanium scales and Cherrywood inlays, the Henry is a lightweight, yet perfectly balanced knife for any task at hand. Utilizing Swedish steel, we are paying tribute to the inspiration behind both our design and overall quality of the Henry. Our blade steel of choice: Sandvik 14C28N has passed the test of time, and proven to be one of Swedens top grade knife steels. With over 150 years of experience, Sandvik has mastered the processes of manufacturing knife steel that we can trust.

Inspired by a traditional slip-joint design from the late 1800s found in northern Sweden, the Henry carries characteristics that have been used for over 150 years. We are honored to name the knife after one of the most inspirational men both personally in my life and many others. A man that has inspired the need for an everyday pocket knife that solves both functional needs yet displays the beauty of pure craftsmanship.

The Henry is a knife to be passed down from generation to generation, as a token to remember the years behind its use and the craftsmanship that will carry on to represent the integrity behind a well-designed product.

Parashears and Kiku XR folding knife now available
9 March 2020

Lynnwood, WA – With 2020 underway, Studies and Observations Group releases two new products: Kiku XR folding knife and ParaShears multi-tool.

For outdoor users, Kiku XR is a rugged folding knife with a powerful styling that harkens to its Japanese DNA, for situations that require a quick-opening, super sharp knife. Made in collaboration with famed Japanese knifemaker Kiku Matsuda, it makes a subtle statement of strength wherever it’s carried. The high-utility blade cuts under virtually every condition, and the linen Micarta handle provides for a sure, secure grip. The ultra-strong XR locking mechanism, able to withstand up to 1,500 pounds of force, self-adjusts over the lifespan of the knife and the CTS-XHP steel blade offers a high degree of corrosion resistance as well as excellent edge retention.

Kiku XR retails for $189.95 and is available now from Sportsman’s Warehouse, Academy, Blade HQ, and will be available soon from Bass Pro. Kiku XR has also been picked up for international distribution into China, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Korea and the UK.

For professional users, ParaShears is a focused multi-tool designed for first responders and emergency personnel who require a reliable tool under the most demanding of rescue conditions. ParaShears come complete with a mission-specific toolset that was requested by first responders, featuring 12 components, including robust shears, strap cutter, glass breaker, oxygen wrench and tweezers. Leveraging SOG’s proprietary Compound Leverage technology, ParaShears is able to cut through material easier and quicker than equivalent shears.

Measuring at 6.3 inches, and weighing in at 4.8 ounces, ParaShears is light and compact enough to wear on your daily kit in their nylon sheath. Made from autoclave compatible materials, there are two color options: black oxide with black handles, or polished stainless with red handles.
