It features black Delrin posts, a rubber bumper, and fits all size iPhone 4s. Color wise, the INox comes in silver, white, black, gold, camo and rainbow finishes. According to CRKT reps at its debut during BLADE show, it should be available now through authorized retailers.


WIKUS Competition Chopper – BLADE Show

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Mantis Knives had some great-looking blades on display, but the one that really caught my eye was the WIKUS. With a total weight of 24 oz. and an overall length of 15″ with a 10″ blade made from M-4 tool steel, it doesn’t seem all that different from most knives, aside from the rather large size. However, it’s been billed as the ‘world’s first “smart” knife’ due to a unique feature: it’s laser guided.

By pushing a button on the handle, the WIKUS projects a red laser beam downward, showing exactly where you’ll make your cut. At the very least it’s an interesting concept, but I’ll let you make your own conclusions about the usefulness of that feature. I also saw nothing about availability and pricing, but I’ll release that information as it surfaces.

Bawidamann Pögn – BLADE Show

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Bawidamann was in full force at BLADE show, displaying both awesome pin-up art and awesome blades. Although I was practically drooling over the Randgridr they had on display (it’s a modern-day trench knife; what’s not to love?), I went with the cord wrapped Pögn you see above. Made from S35-VN steel with a “154 cm “V” gound or chisel ground” grind, this knife features an overall length of 7.25″ with a blade length of 3 3/8″, and uses paracord as a handle material. It’s light-weight, concealable, and comes with its own Kydex sheath. Simply put, its one bad-ass blade.
