Brigantes Presents – Fallkniven X-series Survival Knives

Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

The Fallkniven X Series F1 is, arguably the world most functional and high performing survival knife, considered to be one of the best in the world.

The X-series knives are strong, sharp, safe, comfortable and also really stylish, especially the all-black versions. The basis of the X-knife’s strength lies in the laminated cobalt steel in combination with the well thought out construction in which break zones have been eliminated. Together with the hand shaped convex edge, the X-knife is a concept that beats everything else in the world in terms of safety, comfort and hard use.

To that they have added a cleverly constructed sheath in a special plastic that locks the knife, smart as simple. This month, a stainless steel clip will also become available, it allows you to easily hook the knife on and off from your waistband, adding to its versatility and ease of use.

Intellectual Property 101 Shared with the Knife Industry

Sunday, November 17th, 2019

The American Knife & Tool Institute Announces the First in a Series of Expert Articles on Intellectual Property and Brand Protection to Help Knife Businesses

Cody, Wyoming (November 14, 2019) – The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) is very pleased to announce that the first in a series of articles to provide a useful toolkit for knife businesses has been published on its website. Authored by two experts in the fields of intellectual property and brand protection, Denise Mosteller and Jeremiah Pastrick, as guest contributors on the nonprofit’s website, the article is titled “Intellectual Property 101.” 

Mark Schreiber President CRKT

“We are pleased to share valuable information on intellectual property with our members and the entire sporting knife industry,” said Mark Schreiber, President of CRKT and chair of AKTI’s Anti-Counterfeiting Committee. “Helping our industry thrive and grow is part of our mission as a nonprofit trade association representing the entire knife community.”

“When it comes to the basic types of intellectual property (IP) the ‘Big Three’ include patents, copyrights and trademarks,” said Jeremiah Pastrick, who has served as both vice president of a consulting firm specializing in international intellectual property (IP) development, protection and anti-counterfeiting as well as IP counsel to a wide range of global IP owners. “By and large, each of these forms of IP differ in what they provide protection for, what they don’t provide protection for, how they are created, how they are ‘secured’, and what public policy interest they are meant to serve.”

Denise Mosteller, who has had over 22 years of investigation, brand management and intellectual property experience, explained, “Intellectual property is ‘intangible,’ meaning that all forms of it are recognized as ‘creations of the mind.’ The knife industry is very innovative with different knife designs and mechanisms and makers need to protect those unique aspects to ensure financial success and protect their own individual brands.”

Zero Tolerance Knives ZT0223 Available

Saturday, September 21st, 2019

As you may have seen back ’round the time of Blade Show (see SSD coverage here), Zero Tolerance Knives recently released the ZT0223. A Tim Galyean design, the new folder takes its inspiration from what is obliquely referred to as a “classic military knife” (read, Ka-Bar), but the ZT knife is a folder, “…making it easy to EDC and ready for every task you ask it to take on.”

Details are as follow;

The blade is clip-point style with heavy jimping along the spine and a cutout to decrease weight. CPM 20CV blade steel offers exceptional hardness and wear resistance to take and hold a sharp edge, toughness to resist impact, and—with the highest level of chromium of any high-vanadium steel—excellent corrosion resistance. For an extra measure of blade protection, ZT adds black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating, ceramic bead blasted for a non-glare finish.

The titanium handle is also DLC coated and bead blasted to extend the matte look. The 0223 has a sturdy titanium frame lock with a hardened steel lockbar insert for reliable lockup. ZT’s KVT ball-bearing system, combined with a highly ergonomic flipper, make the 0223 quick and easy to open, too. The 0223’s earth brown G10 handle scales are reminiscent of the original military knife’s stacked leather handle. Our G10 scales wrap around to the top of the handle and meet in the middle to provide a comfortable and secure grip—as well as helping to keep debris out of your knife.

The pocketclip is left/right reversible and made of bent steel with a black Teflon® finish. The bronze-anodized titanium tube spacer in the handle is secured by two custom screws. A series of decorative holes drilled in the ricasso of the blade echo the jimping along the spine and add to the subtle details of this remarkably handsome knife.

The ZT0223 full product sheet can be found online here; on IG @ztknives.

                    Made in the USA
                    Manual open, KVT ball-bearing system
