First introduced in 1991, the groundbreaking C14 Rescue combined the safety of a sheepfoot blade profile, the cutting power of a SpyderEdge, and the lightweight convenience of an FRN handle. The Rescue 3 takes the time-tested Rescue design and updates it with enhanced features, including an ergonomically enhanced FRN handle with Bi-Directional Texturing, skeletonized stainless steel liners, and a four-position hourglass clip that supports all possible carry positions. Its hollow-ground VG-10 blade is serrated all the way to the tip for extreme cutting power and features an oversized 14mm Spyderco hole for easy opening. Weighing less than four ounces, the Rescue 3 is the perfect carry-anywhere tool for first responders and prepared civilians.
The Military, aka 'Millie', has a large Spyderco Round Hole for quick deployment and for use with gloves. Texturing above the hole hold the thumb in contact with the blade's spine during cutting for confident control over the sharpened edge. The handle scales have nested (inlaid) liners, which contribute to the lock strength without additional bulky liners. Spacers between the scales create a gap running the handle's full length exposing the inside workings for inspection and cleaning. The handle flares slightly at the front end creating a finger choil at the butt end, which keeps the knife from slipping forward or backward in the hand while sawing or making tough or aggressive cuts. A contoured metal clip is set for right-hand tip-down carry.
- This Sprint Run edition Dragonfly 2 is supercharged with an exotic V-Toku2 tool steel core blade sandwiched between layers of SUS310 stainless steel. V-Toku2 is renowned for its toughness and high hardness. The knife is equipped with a distinct blue-gray colored FRN handle complete with grip-enhancing, bi-directional texturing. Includes a reversible wire pocket clip for everyday carry.
Bridging the Gap Between Portable and Stationary
The design allows the upper container of the larger-sized Royal to be stored inside the lower storage container, making it compact enough to offer some portability. When nested for storage or travel, the Royal will fit inside its original box, which has dimensions of only 10” by 10” by 16”. While not as small as the units designed just for travel, this is still a small enough package to easily fit in the trunk of a car, your closet, larger kitchen cabinets, or a large suitcase. With the ability to hold four Black Berkey purification filters and its higher-water-pressure-producing height, the Royal Berkey water filter system can produce some serious amounts of water — 8 gallons per hour.
Named after the Troodon (troh-o-don) Dinosaur, this knife defines the new era for Microtech Knives. Troodon is Greek for "wounding tooth". New enhancements include a new slender handle, contoured shape and radical design elements, as well as a sophisticated internal mechanism, which improves operational functionality and reliability. The Troodon brings together a new out-the-front technology with the feel of a Microtech classic. This project was spear headed personally by Anthony Marfione and consisted of an internal collaboration of the Microtech team. The Troodon was the flagship for Microtech's entire 2006 out-the-front line.
The introduction of CNC programmed designs gave Chris Reeve the ability to bring exactly consistent designs to the table. These designs are repeatable and may be ordered by name. As the computer age is more and more upon us, the embracing of what the computer can do for us is vital as an artist. The colors of the thumb lugs and back spacers are matched to the respective designs and will not be varied, nor can they accept requests for changes in color or the addition of inlays.
Laser engraved and finished with a combination of laser anodizing and hand polished handles, the Sebenza 21 Plated CGG is artwork by veteran machinist and CGG designer, Mike Sperry.
The stonewashed titanium handle features a green carbon fiber composite overlay on both sides. In addition to the engaging green overlay, the handle also features ridged machining at the top of the handle that follows the handle's angular contours, front and back. A sturdy frame lock with hardened steel lock bar insert provides a secure lockup.
This handsome handle is paired with a 3.75" clip-point blade of CPM-20CV high-chromium stainless steel. This powdered metallurgy tool steel has a high volume of vanadium carbides for exceptional wear resistance—and a truly long-lasting edge. The highest level of chromium of any high-vanadium steel gives 20CV excellent corrosion resistance as well. The blade is machine satin-finished on the grinds and stonewashed on the flats.
The Socom Elite sets the highest standard for tactical/utility cutlery. Since the inception of the original Socom in 1996, it has been the pioneer of the entire Microtech folding knife line. Over the years, numerous improvements have been made making the Socom more adaptable to different environments. Both the manual and the Auto Socoms have a unique handle shape that molds to your hand.
An integrated glass breaker in the base of the handle and a large stud that allows easy opening with a glove adds to its impressive stature.
The Socom's rugged reliability makes it the first choice for the special operations community.

The high-carbon blade steel offers good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. The bead-blasted finish is easy to maintain. For safety, the Chive has two locking systems. The frame lock secures the blade open so it can't accidentally close during use. And to ensure that it won’t accidentally open during transport, the Chive is also equipped with a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded. In pure stainless steel, both blade and handle are easy to clean and maintain.
With its less-than-two-inch blade, the Chive is a small knife, which makes it perfect for pocket, pack, purse, or briefcase carry. The Chive is perfect for just about any cutting task you'd care to ask it to do -- from opening packages to breaking down cardboard boxes.
