Every now and then at Atlanta Cutlery, we get asked a simple question, "what is your most popular knife"? Although a lot of personal opinions can go into what is THE most popular knife that we carry, to simply answer the question we've compiled a list of the top 10 most popular knives of this year! From fixed blades to folders these are the year's top-selling knives!
#10 1917 US Trench Knife (SKU 420007)
The 1917 US Trench Knife is a terrific replica for the collector or reenactor that embodies the classic look of the original stiletto knife. Made just like the originals with carbon steel, triangular blade/spike, hardwood grip and stamped steel knuckle bow with pyramid-shaped protrusions. Made from an existing original, you can own the same thing for a fraction of the price. Includes OD green leather sheath with metal parts.
These original battle kukris were made prior to 1890. Some were made much earlier, but it’s difficult to determine the exact date. Each kukri is hand made; the steel was smelted, forged, shaped and hammered in Nepal by individual Kamis. As spears and the Kora sword were being replaced by firearms, the kukri was the weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat.
This longleaf kukri was made for war. It has a straighter spine and longer blade than bhojpure, and in the skilled hands of the Gurkha it became a frightening weapon indeed. These have all seen service with both the Nepali military and the British Army. All of the blades are marked in Devangari script with the date of manufacture. This comes complete with original scabbard and 2 small kukri knives while supplies last.
#8 Boker Plus Wildcat (SKU 404245)
This folding karambit-like blade quickly became a crowd favorite just this year! Solid D2 tool steel makes an excellent blade, which deploys smoothly and easily thanks to the ball bearing pivot on this folder. The ergonomically molded G-10 scales fit the hand wonderfully while making for a pleasing grip. The most expensive folder on the list, it's easy to see why with the fine Boker craftsmanship.
#7 Kershaw Scallion Folding Knife (SKU 404322)
Now, this was no surprise! TThe Scallion is already one of Kershaw's most popular knives, but we thought we'd step it up by giving this Scallion some great-looking, black aluminum handle scales. The oh-so-handy 2 1/4-inch blade stays the same, ensuring that this is right-sized for a lightweight and convenient carry in pocket, purse, or backpack.
#6 Little Mustang (SKU 402660)
