Super Agent Knife

For everyone who wasn't born with a giant claw.

For everyone who wasn't born with a giant claw.

I’m big on knives and I really like a good number of Spyderco products, but one in particular stands out as just the most bad ass. The Spyderco Civilian is that bad ass knife. It reminds me of another Spyderco product, the Harpy,Harpy50 but the Civilian is longer and more wicked looking. Spyderco was actually approached in the 1990s by a specialized branch of U.S. law enforcement about making a knife for their undercover agents, allowing them to carry weapons in situations where a gun would have been too noticeable.

The Civilian is Spyderedged(serrated in the Spyderco pattern) and is really great at slicing. This type of knife is perfect for slicing through fishing line, rope, netting, giant spiderwebs, seat belts, things like that. It rides deep in the pocket thanks to a custom curved black clip and is mounted for tip-down carry. We also can’t overlook that the overall design of the blade is scary as hell. It looks like a demon eagle talon or something along those lines. And intimidation is half the fight. Visually, its also beautiful. I really enjoy the very deep curves and the fullness at the belly. I also like the classic little Spyderco hole in the blade, which makes it much easier to open the blade without taking away from the aesthetics. The blade is usually available in limited quantities and costs around $270. I would advise anyone who purchases this blade to handle it very carefully because it can really leave a nasty cut.

Gerber LMF II Black Infantry Knife

Every self-respecting man deserves a knife he can depend his life on. If the Zombie Apocalypse struck tomorrow, you know that with your one trusty knife, you could camp out in the woods, for days-even weeks, until Will Smith fashions a cure. We loved the Gerber LMF II when it was $140 bucks, but now at $70, there’s no reason not to buy it. Even if the only jungle you’ll ever see is that monstrosity you look at every time you’re in the bathroom.

Go to amazon if you want to hear all the gritty details and some reviews from real men in Iraq who use this knife on the daily, including one sniper team that cut a live wire with this bad boy. It shut down the lights in the city, left a gash in the blade, but the sniper suffered no electrical shock because of the insulated handle.

It has a steel butt on the handle to hammer glass for helicopter escapes (something we at THS do daily), an aggressive serrated blade for cutting brush and rope, and three holes in the handle so you can attach it to a pole and use it as a spear for catch fish, fighting boar, and preforming your best John Locke impression.

As if that wasn’t enough it has a carbine sharpener in the sheath, so it sharpens the blade every time you pull it out. This knife is always ready for action, even if you aren’t

If you’re looking for a great everyday carry tool that has everything you need, and nothing you don’t– look no further than the new Leatherman Cx Skeletool. With a pair of needle-nose pliers, wire cutters/strippers, external bottle opener/carabiner, bit driver, and amazing super-steel serrated blade that opens one-handed even when closed.

It has carbon fiber inserts, and the thing just looks awesome. I personally carry it all the time, and always get compliments and inquiries about it. It even includes a removable belt clip so you can wear it in your waistband and forget about it–that is until you need to crack open your next beer.
