Derespina Knives Model 10 Production Karambit

This is the production version of the infamous Derespina Model 10 Karambit. The Model 10 was designed to be the tactical fixed blade that is the perfect choice for EDC. Everyone raves about the ergonomics of the Model 10 and the carry-ability of this compact karambit. The D2 tool steel blade measures 2.75 in. tip to handle and is 0.185 in. thick. The blade is double ground, just like the custom, with functional jimping on the thumb ramp and a brushed satin finish. The angle in which the blade style sits in relation to the handle creates maximum cutting and slashing power as well as penetration. Tip to tip, this knife measures 6.5 in. overall with a one-inch diameter pinky ring. This is a well-built karambit with superior ergonomics from one of the best and it comes with a friction fit Kydex sheath with adjustable belt clip attached. It is one of the premier tactical tools on the market and it makes us happy to see it in production form with the exact same materials as the custom but at an excellent price point.

KA-BAR TDI Shark Bite Ultramid Self-Defense Knife 9908

The TDI Shark Bite from KA-BAR designed by Tactical Defense Institute is constructed of 100% Ultramid, the perfect material for a deep covert backup self-defense blade. Ultramid is a lightweight, synthetic material that provides a sharp and durable edge. This high-tech, covert knife is completely non-magnetic so it won't set off those pesky metal detectors. Ultramid is super tough and virtually impervious to the elements.

The pistol grip handle is also made of textured Ultramid polymer and since the knife is constructed of a single piece of Ultramid it is very strong. The handle is comfortable and provides an awesome grip and the traction grooves on the spine further enhance control when doing fine cutting tasks. The TDI Shark Bite comes with an Ultramid sheath and 24 inches of #3 black epoxy coated steel ball chain for neck carry.
The TDI Shark Bite weighs less than an ounce so it can be worn on the neck, carried in a pocket, tied, tucked, or taped just about anywhere on one's person for the ultimate in covert carry.
The TDI Shark Bite is impervious to heat, cold, moisture and extreme weather so it can be tactically hidden virtually everywhere (indoors and outdoors). Moreover, they are so affordable that you can purchase several and keep them hidden in strategic locations and if the need arises you can ditch them.

If you are in the market for a non-expensive, totally non-detectible (non-magnetic) knife for self-defense the TDI Shark Bite is an excellent choice.

TOPS El Chete Survival Machete

 How does TOPS define destruction? El Chete.
The El Chete by TOPS Knives was designed with one thought in mind... chopping. It's got a full-tang 1/4 inch thick blade that's a full foot long, and it chops very well. Even though it's so large, the knife still weighs in under 2 pounds.

El Chete is the first TOPS knife to be released with their wicked new finish called Acid Rain which varies slightly from knife to knife so each knife is unique.The sandwiched Micarta handles are thick enough to fill your hand like a hatchet or small ax handle would. The handle is well rounded for comfort and the black canvas Micarta underneath the green canvas Micarta adds even more to the aesthetics of this piece.
The sheath is an out-the-front design with all the bells and whistles. You just pull up slightly then out the front so that you don't have to strain to pull the knife all the way up through the sheath. There is a strap that when snapped into place, helps immensely with the retention of the blade. TOPS Knives also made it available with a rotating spring steel clip or a leather dangler attachment so that each user picks the right fit for him or her.
If you're in the market for a large knife, you've definitely found it. Check them out at

NEW Cold Steel Safe Maker Push Daggers!

At the end of 2016 we were saddened that Cold Steel was discontinuing two of our favorite push daggers... the Safe Maker I and Safe Maker II. These two push daggers were some of our best push knives ever made. We were thrilled when Cold Steel announced that they were coming out with new Safe Maker models with AUS8 stainless steel blades and a durable stonewash finish. Other than these two changes the New Safe Maker's are identical to the classic models with one exception--they are priced significantly lower! Prices on the NEW Safe Maker's start at only $29.95 at OsoGrandeKnives.

The Chris Reeve Inkosi is the New Flagship Folder

Perfectly balanced and absolutely beautiful! The Chris Reeve Inkosi folder has claimed the position of Chief alongside the iconic Sebenza. The Inkosi pushes the characteristics of the Integral Lock, blade strength, pivot and lock tolerances as well as overall ergonomics.

The Inkosi folder is available in a large and small version, just like the Sebenza. It boasts a carefully developed hollow grind, strengthened pivot and sturdy lock up. While challenging the standards of the Integral Lock, the Inkosi is the most over built knife of its kind, a true testament of strength. Using a ceramic ball as an interface for the lock bar to the blade tang, it ensures a lifetime of consistent lock up.

This is the first time Chris Reeve has been able to use twin, over sized washers with an Integral lock. The washer diameter is wider than the blade securing zero sideways play. With larger lubrication holes there is even less surface area of friction.

With Chris Reeve's Large Hollow Grind technology, they use a shallow radius to add more strength to the blade, making it half way between a flat grind and their standard hollow grind. The Inkosi features the sandblasted matte gray handles. Comes with the Chris Reeve microfiber cloth. See it at OsoGrandeKnives.

Spyderco Zome Endura 4 Folding Knife

The New Zome Endura is based on the classic Spyderco Endura 4 and it needs no introduction. The Zome Endura has the same FRN handles but they have been artfully sytled using the traditional Japanese craft of zome – a method of dyeing textile materials with natural sources. Japanese artisans individually dyed each knife in the style of hiki-zome, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind pattern on every handle. Check them out at
