Every year, knife enthusiasts and producers gather at the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada (along with a host of other hunting- and camping-related brands). With them comes the latest technology, materials and designs that the knife world has to offer. Below are a few just-revealed highlights from our favorite knife makers at the show.
781 Anthem by Benchmade $500
Made in the USA, the 718 Anthem is the first-ever billet titanium knife to utilize the AXIS opening mechanism.
Pilar by CRKT $40
With a 2.402-inch blade length and a unique blade shape, the Pilar is designed to be ultra compact while feeling much bigger than it actually is during use.
0055 by Zero Tolerance $275
The 0055 is a collaboration with GTC Knives. It has a wild-looking blade shape, based off the GTC Airborne. Of all the knives released at SHOT, this might be our favorite.
Cutjack by Steel Will $170
Made in Italy, Steel Will’s new Cutjack has a 3-inch blade connected to stainless steel ball bearings, allowing for smooth and easy opening.
Baton Q4 by SOG $120
By far the most unique multitool at SHOT, the Baton Q4 is shaped like a pen but is packed with 10 different tools — including a pen and a pair of pliers.
