The Knife Junkie takes a look back at 2018 — some of the knife news and trends that happened in 2018. This look back isn’t intended to be an all-inclusive recap of the year, but just some of the highlights.

Among the highlights of the show — Kershaw Knives, bearings, Rick Hinderer Knives and the tri-way pivot, mass drop drops, Cold Steel changing steel, Benchmade’s quality improvements, OEMs, Spyderco changes their catalog (or their knife release schedule), and more.

Pocket Check

Jim continues to carry his Buck Canoe that he picked in Episode 06 while Bob has several knives (again):

  • Spyderco Military
  • Case Mini Trapper
  • Cold Steel Black Talon
If you have only $30 I would say spend it on this knife. The action is incredible and the ergonomics are right on point. Click To Tweet
