Folding knives from the exhibition SHOT Show 2017

56
Exhibition SHOT Show is mainly devoted to firearms arms. But besides the weapon at this exhibition the mass of options of additional devices, ammunition and additions to the weapon is presented. Quite a lot of manufacturers of knives also participate in the exhibition, demonstrating their new products. It is impossible to cover the entire volume of new products, but it’s realistic to get acquainted with the most interesting folding knives that appeared this year, especially since products are not weapons and, if desired, they can be purchased even in the post-Soviet space without any permits.


Knife Coltellerie Maserin 377 AM3

The company Coltellerie Maserin is well known on the European and American market for its products, which are of high quality and sophisticated design. The new 377 AM3 knife stands out primarily for its simple appearance, it has absolutely no decorations on it, a simple sharp blade and the same idle grip.

The blade of the knife is made of powder steel Bolher M390. For many, the word "powder" immediately defines the blade to the category of Chinese knives, which are sold for a dollar per kilogram, but powder metallurgy has leaped forward and now powder steel has very good characteristics. The blade does not rust, long holds sharpening.

The simple mechanism of the knife has a stainless steel bearing, which allows you to not worry about how the knife will behave after use in a wet environment or when moisture gets inside the handle. This of course does not mean that the knife will not need to care for, but nonetheless.

The handle of the knife can be made of carbon fiber or titanium carbide with a different texture and color coating. On the handle can be installed removable clip.

The length of the blade is 75 millimeters, the length of the handle 95 millimeters, the total length of the unfolded knife is equal to 170 millimeters. The maximum thickness of the blade - 3,5 millimeter. The weight of the knife with a handle of carbon fiber total 80 grams.

The only thing that confuses this knife is its price. The manufacturer recommends selling similar at a price of 199 US dollars.

Spyderco C223GP PARA 3 Knife

At exactly the same price offered another knife, but from the American company. This folding knife has an unusual shape of a blade with a hole. This form is necessary in order to have the opportunity to open the knife with one hand, with the thumb of the hand holding the thumb in the hole in the blade.

The blade of the knife is made back from powder steel, this time from CPM S30V. The metal perfectly keeps grinding and is not subject to corrosion.

The length of the blade is 75 millimeters. In the closed position, the knife has a length of 109 millimeters, in the open 184. Blade thickness 4 millimeter. Weight - 96 grams.

The handle is made of carbon fiber with a metal clip.

Spyderco С215 GP EuroEdge Knife

The next knife from Spyderco doesn’t look very unusual for a folding knife. It's all about the blade of the weapon, which is shaped like a two-edged, in fact, only one side is sharpened. An additional effect is created by the valleys on the blade, which are absolutely not needed by such a knife, but they look beautiful.

The blade of the knife is made of steel CPM S30V, as in the previous knife. The handle is made of stainless steel with carbon fiber overlays.

The length of the blade is 99 millimeters, thickness 3,8 millimeter. Length in the unfolded position - 228 millimeters, in the folded - 129. The weight of the knife is 170 grams.

The recommended price from the manufacturer is equal to 370 dollars.

FOX Knives Shadow Knife

This knife is the result of the work of the French knife mater Bastienne Cova, who is quite famous among people interested in knives. This folding knife has simple appearance, but at the same time is rather convenient for daily tasks.
The blade of the knife is made of stainless steel N690Co with a hardness of 56 / 58 HRc. In addition to the anti-corrosion properties of steel, the blade additionally has a PVD coating. The handle of the knife is made of titanium, carbon fiber lining.

The length of the blade of the knife is equal to 107 millimeters, when unfolded, the knife has a length of 218 millimeters. Blade thickness 4 millimeter. Knife weight - 140 grams.

Even the approximate cost of the knife is not yet known, but something suggests that it will be around 400-500 US dollars.

CRKT Homefront Knife

Among the various folding knives, which are mainly distinguished by the shape of the blade and the handle, a really interesting knife was presented at the SHOT Show 2017 exhibition. The company CRKT paid attention to such a problem as the complex cleaning of a folding knife in case of its pollution.

Most often, at least a screwdriver is required to disassemble a knife, the company's designers managed to make a knife that does not require any tools for its maintenance except tools for sharpening and rags.

The two halves of the knife handle, between which the blade is installed, are connected by a latch and double-sided screws with a roller in the center. Thus, for disassembly, you just need to move the latch and unscrew the screw. The solution is very simple, but it greatly simplifies the cleaning of the knife.

The blade itself is leather made of steel AUS 8, the handle is made of aluminum alloy. Blade length 90 millimeters, thickness - 3,3 millimeter. In the unfolded position, the knife has a length of 211 millimeters. 136 knife weight grams.

The knife is already on sale at a price of 150 dollars.

Knives company LionSteel

The most beautiful of all the above knives, in the author's opinion, are two knives from the company LionSteel.

The first knife is called Big Daghetta. The blade of the knife is made of steel D2, the handle is made of one piece of titanium alloy. The total length of the knife in the unfolded position 218 millimeters with the length of the blade 94 millimeter. Blade thickness 3,5 millimeter. Weight - 169 grams.

Approximate price is about 220 euro.

The second knife has the designation SR11. The steel from which the blade is made is called Sleipner Uddeholm, it is a chromium-molybdenum alloy with a high silicon content. The handle is made of either a titanium alloy or aluminum. The blade length of the knife is 94 millimeters, the total length of 211 millimeters. Blade thickness 4,5 millimeter. For the version of the knife with an aluminum handle, the weight is 146 grams. This knife is available at a price of 196 euro. The knife with a titanium handle has a weight of 187 grams, its price starts from euro 330.

      With all the choice of high-quality knives with a fixed blade, especially our “little things” are clearly higher than foreign ones, it seems to me that our folding ones lose to the western ones in terms of variety and quality ...
      I also disagree with the author of the article about powder steels and China ... they didn’t have them, and the technical properties of powders from good manufacturers are really noticeably higher than that of traditional steels.

      Put side by side two knives of the same type ours and SOG or GERBER. Steel processing, design, the use of good plastic instead of wood, many years of work on the design of the knife - all are not in favor of domestic manufacturers. If not for the lack of certificates for military knives of the above brands and inaccessibility in price - the choice is obvious.

          Some go on picnics and on public transport. :) And there it is not very convenient with a knife on the belt. And putting it in a package - you still lose. And he put the “fold” in his pocket (and even better in the 5th pocket of jeans) and there are no problems.
          Although, I (in theory) got hooked on the semi-folding d'esthenes. I would like to find a sane instance.

        “Of the shortcomings, only the need for much more thorough care."

        The biggest drawback: TWO hands are needed to open it.
        And at the critical moment of self-defense, one hand is usually already occupied: with it or brush it aside
        from the enemy, or she was already captured.
        They tried to rob me once in the center of Johannesburg. I worked there. Right on a crowded street. Negroes immediately grabbed my right hand. But I am left-handed. And the left managed to grab a can of tear gas from his pocket, lift it above his head and press. And on yourself and on them. They ran away.
        As you know, a folding knife would not help me. There is a so-called "folding knives" - stilettos. They are more useful.

            This knife has drawbacks, the handle itself can injure. There are many “channels” that are not needed in FIGs, especially when the hand is in blood or wet.
            For a warehouse for bad the handle of wood, textolite or cordura, so it seems the new rubber is called and that there would be no extra protrusions or indentations.

          Then I recommend Spiderko. Opens with one hand even in winter gloves.

          Personally, I have been using Byrd Meadowlark for several years now. Here is one, only a stainless steel hilt:

          At first, as usual, he dragged all sorts of inexpensive Chinese. Until one day I cut myself because of the fixation mechanism. Then, for some time, the skeleton noname / Chinese wore a small fix - but the steel was bad, it held the sharpener very poorly. In the end, I bought Byrd for something around 40 American raccoons. Satisfied. Recommend. The only thing is that it’s a small knife, but it’s more convenient for me. Usually prefer the handle more genuine.
          And I don’t know if Israeli law allows to carry such knives. EMNIP, in Israel it is easier to carry a gun than a normal knife.

            Yes, I actually had only one. French Opinel.
            Tempted that he is very light. But it turned out to be uncomfortable (and the steel was lousy).
            It may be good for killer-mockworm killers, but bad for self-defense. Him just
            do not open with one hand. And the latch must be rotated. It began to rust, I broke it (so as not to fall into bad hands) and threw it away.

              voyaka uh, at the present time, Opinel is a brand similar to Swiss folding ones. That is, the price is bad, but it's good to cut bread, I personally would not even dare to open canned food with them. And by the way, all Opineli are the same as in your photo, they differ only in size, but not in design. I would suggest you S&W, although he is Chinese, but the steel is usually of good quality, and the design is quite reliable.

          If the folding knife cannot be opened with one hand - just do not buy it. I have a second article top for example. It opens perfectly with one hand. Like most good storage people, actually. Miscarriages, on the contrary, are much more dangerous for the owner. A grain of sand that has fallen into the mechanism from the pocket instantly wedges the mechanism. And it turns out that you only think that you have a knife. But in vain ...
          This one was pleased - Spyderco С215 GP EuroEdge Knife. It's nice to see that at prestigious exhibitions there are patterns with which you can do absolutely nothing but kill your neighbor! Straightforward humanity rolls over. And the knife itself clearly resembles the description from the "Norillag knives". Very functional gizmo, yeah.

          Most inertia can be opened with a wave of inertia. But without gaining this skill, throwing a blade away with a wave is difficult, yes. But naturally, it takes precious 1-2 seconds. An inconsistent knife is pulled out and hits the target much faster, the movement of removing the knife coincides passes into the movement of the cut.

          If you were grabbed by the hand, this is very good:
          Firstly, you don’t have to run and jump to get the enemy
          Secondly, the enemy has at least one arm occupied and his head is open
          Thirdly, the opponent’s hand or arms holding you is at the same time a rope that you can pull to hit him with your forehead on the nose, and a lever to knock him over ... Head into some sort of border.

      Probably its main advantage is stealth when worn, and safety when worn without a scabbard. Nevertheless, if it is possible to lose the part, according to Murphy’s law, it will be lost. And walking with a knife without a scabbard through the streets is at least strange. And you won’t put it in your pocket.

Then he found himself in a situation where it was necessary to change the lock on the door. used a knife as a chisel. And nothing. The test passed.

    All of the above knives in the article are good - the company. The question is sometimes in one - the price. Especially in the provinces, where salaries are in the range of 15-25 thousand a month, you don’t especially buy a knife for 4 hundred bucks. Most prefer to do with more budget options

    For example, I usually take him on a business trip. At the same time I try to take a multifunctional one, for example, Victorinos. It has a serrated blade, saw (rarely used, but nonetheless), two openers (for bottles and cans), a corkscrew. Somehow I don’t particularly want to carry through the checkpoints. It is not known what the native law enforcement agencies will complain about. In nature - yes, you are right. There you can take a non-folding knife.
    At work, I always have a warehouse in my belt. The length of the blade is about 5 cm. Here I use it and have a bite, and if you need to open cardboard boxes.

      The quality of the Chinese compared to .... which were brought in at the beginning of the 90's undoubtedly improved. I somehow years ago 5-7 comrade gave such a Chinese

      A lot. It’s impossible to look at those that were brought in at the beginning of the nineties. Crap knows what copper-plated steel And nickel plated. I use Soviet storage, hunting. Those with a liner. There are also enough useful items. In vain, some talk that in the USSR there was no quality. Here I go to flea markets and look for them.

    A peasant must always have a knife and a match / lighter in his pocket outside his home. An adequate fold in a solid leather case in a pocket or on a belt will not hurt or burden, but can come in handy at the most unexpected moment. I liked 377 am3 and the last with a golden handle cf11. A cover with a clip and a price of 100 - 120 euros and I take it.

    Kukri will be more reliable in the forest, and I don’t see much difference from an ordinary folding knife worth 500-1000 rubles

    Last summer I bought a reservist from China. Steel D 2, excellent sharpening, blade length of about 101 mm and a thickness of 4 mm. Opens for the fin with one hand. By the way, the blade is also on the bearing. I sewed a normal leather case and always carry it with me. And I do not need these expensive knives for hundreds of euros.

        Well I do not know. I personally do not rust. You just need to look after the knife.

            I do not go fishing, I am more in the woods. For the forest, I have another, not a folding knife, also, by the way, from not expensive ones. And he is the “reservist”, the reserve-reserve in the forest, but the main one in the city. And it’s not difficult to take care of a knife - after use it is washed, dried and that’s all. Well sometimes corrected the blade. I do not observe rust.

              So I go fishing with two. One hunting fold from the times of the USSR, and the main knot with a wedge 130 mm., Type artel. Steel, stainless, to me in the 90 years
              fitted with a local chemical plant. Stronger than automobile valves. Not plasticine, but you can sharpen it.

    For 30 years I have not seen such. Although previously often bought them. Especially when sent to agricultural work, a sane knife was always needed. Most often a warehouse

      Rarely, but come across. And recently acquired fishing, with a sturgeon on the handle. Very rare. With a saw to remove the scales. I haven’t seen such people on the Hansa or on Rusknife, there are several hundred models of Soviet knives there. But the VAKO artel knife, also recently stupidly missed. crying There was no money. crying

        I have a couple of hunting (not folding) still Soviet license plates, but I do not use them. Steel is soft. I keep for the collection, all the same, my first, legitimate, real edged weapons, as it is interpreted by our laws. Now I prefer the so-called "household". Selected from a bunch of options the most convenient.

        My friend collects knives of the Soviet era. He walks around the flea market and flea markets in the cities where he comes to work. And stupidly baffled conversations with the elderly old women. Sometimes it is possible to find knives in excellent condition. And with a sleeve puller and with a sling cutter and with an awl, a tailor came across.

          Specially knives of Soviet times I do not collect. Just like any kid, he used to love to buy his favorite knives. But, as a rule, I bought to use. Some of the knives have been lost, some have become unusable. Already after the collapse of the Union, it acquired a good warehouse, "Bear 2" was called. He has a stainless steel blade, and not nickel-plated like the Soviet-era folds. Used it for 20 years, until he bought the "Reservist". It is stronger and more versatile - both for light and heavy work. And the teddy bear is now in good condition - ground, cleaned and ready for use.

    In nature, a tourist used a set of a large knife made from a hacksaw blade, and a hacksaw-delimbing hacksaw (mainly for skiing) or an average ax and a small light stainless steel knife (mainly in summer). In the city - a simple Chinese stainless fold with a steel handle or
    SR924 Viking Nordway.
    IMHO, the knife should be convenient and cheap, so as not to mind breaking / losing.
    Hanging out is for children.
