The SHOT Show (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade) in Las Vegas is enormous to say the least. The show runs for four days. If you wanted to walk the show floor and visit every booth, you would have about eight seconds at each! While we cannot see it all, we spent plenty of time softening the shoe leather to come up with Day 2’s list of cool new products.
Cold steel has been one of the leaders in the knife industry producing all manner of cutlery ranging from affordable to extravagantly high-end. The all time favorite is the Cold Steel SRK—Survival Rescue Knife.
The CRKT OC3 is designed by sixth-degree black belt Pat Cascio and knife maker Brian Wagner. The result of this meeting of the minds is an extraordinary knife with excellent capabilities. During the past few years, CRKT has brought together the best and brightest knife designers and makers, and the result is a number of interesting knives including the BT-70 and FTWS, to name just a few.

The 2016 SHOT Show offers an overflowing array of tempting goodies, so much so that consumers may feel overwhelmed at the task of figuring out what to buy in the coming year. To help out, we’re offering a sampler of some of the more interesting products from a vast and diverse assortment.
When you open a white box with the red blackhawk, you think perhaps it will be the latest handgun from Ruger. In this case, I found a

When considering what survival gear to purchase, you must feel confident the products are going to work reliably. A $30, or even a $5, small pocketknife is fine for EDC, but when your life depends on it, you don’t want to end up holding on to nothing but a broken knife and broken hopes.
When it comes to cars, motorcycles, guns, and knives, you generally get what you pay for. But sometimes, a statistical
Law Shield recently warned its members that until September 1, they still have to obey tricky local knife laws in Texas — especially if they live in or travel to San Antonio and Corpus Christi.
Those two Texas cities were among the “10 Worst Anti-Knife Cities” in America for 2014 — San Antonio at No. 4 and Corpus Christi at No. 9, according to a national knife-rights organization.

Columbia River Knife and Tool is a respected name in the knife world, while Flavoi Ikoma is a world-renowned knife designer and custom knife maker. The two collaborated to give you a way to buy an Ikoma design at a fair price. Ikoma’s Fossil knife is a combination of mechanical function and excellent geometry, along with an inimitable style.
That is a lot of the alphabet hanging on the top of this sheet. The Columbia River Knife and Tool knife named For Those Who Serve (FTWS) is a first class addition to the line up and one that favorably impresses me. The knife is a great field knife, a go anywhere do anything knife, a useful knife in any endeavor in which the knife must not fail, and a passing fair service-grade chunk of steel.
For more years than I care to remember, I have been a fan of Cold Steel knives. The Cold Steel knife company offers good quality, sharp edges and positive function. During my time in police service, my impression was that I saw more Cold Steel knives used by peace officers than anything else. The reasons are quality and affordability.
The Tomahawk always has held a great fascination for this writer. Among the most intriguing cinematic depictions of the Tomahawk—a tool, a weapon and an American icon—is the one in which Mani, a Native American who has traveled to France with his good friend, takes on a gang of murderers.
