I just listed a half dozen different Black Jack Classic Knives on sale through the end of April. The knives I picked are a good cross section from the smaller Model 4 Boot Style knife the large #3 Sambar Stag and 1-7 Leather with CPM 3V steel.
Personally, I think the Blackjack Classic line is overlooked by a lot of outdoorsman. They’re made by Bark River Knife and Tool and I can’t fault the fit, finish or overall quality in any way. It’s just a great looking, solidly built tool. I’ve only spent a limited amount of time playing around with one of the 124’s but what little I have used it, I really like the feel of it. The convex ground blades are razor sharp and seem to hold an extremely good edge. Just what you’d expect from quality hardened A2 Steel.
The 124 and 125 fall into the middle of the size range of the Blackjacks. For all practical purposes, I can’t think of many chores it won’t do for my needs.
As I mentioned, the sale runs through Monday and prices do include shipping to US addresses.
Yesterday a couple of new Schatt & Morgans arrived and were added to the storefront. One was a popular pattern we haven’t’ seen in a while and the second was a total surprise. AND… the is a Hurricane Sale Coming.
Part of a run of 30 pieces each, the Large Stockman is available in Black Micarta, Ironwood and the Orange Burl pictured above. This is a generously proportioned knife that is great for anyone needing a real working knife.
The next ‘surprise’ were the Baby Doctor knives. I say they were a surprise as we don’t see a lot of Doctor Knives released regardless of size.
While that Spatula blade is a bit of an oddity for many, believe me it has a lot of utility. Years ago I smoked a pipe and found that blade incredibly handy. It works great as a mini pry bar for opening paint and varnish cans. While not perfect as a screwdriver, it will work. With a little tweaking it should work fine as a striker for the Fire Steel. And on it goes…
And finally, there’s a hurricane sale coming. I’ve accumulated a few knives that I’m going to offer at some sale prices to try and clean things up around here. In addition, a portion of the sales will go to either the Red Cross or the Salvation Army to offer a little aid for the folks getting the hell kicked out of them from the recent round of hurricanes.
The knives are going to be a mixture of auto’s, traditional and maybe a few fixed blades. I take a fair number of knives to the shows I attend and some of the knives become ‘demonstrators’. Some have boxes or packaging that’s gotten worn. A few are knives that arrived or customers returned with cosmetic issues. And some are knives which came out of collections I acquired that have been used. The mixture will include some S&M Autos, used GEC’s, knives I don’t regularly carry like a Stryder or maybe a MicroTech or even an auto Buck. How about a used GEC / Schrade Auto?
I’m going to start putting a few up today to get things started.
Hard to believe Monday is Memorial Day already, but it is. For a number of years TSA Knives has had some sort of fund raising project on this weekend to assist the Wounded Warrior Project. In the past it’s usually taken the form of an auction but I decided to try something a little different this year.
Pretty simple actually. Anyone buying a Swiss Army Knife between now and through Monday, May 29 will have the option to receive one of the SAK Classic’s for just $5 (normally $12.95).
Get it? You buy any Swiss Army Knife in the store for regular price and you can add a Classic to your order for just $5.
So how does that benefit the Wounded Warrior Project? TSA Knives will MATCH your $5 and make a $10 donation to the Wounded Warrior Project for eachClassic sold. Should be a win/win deal for you and the Wounded Warrior Project.
As I said, the Promo starts immediately and runs through Monday. When you place an order for one of the regular SAK’s you’ll have a button asking if you want to add a Classic to the cart for $5. Just select yes or no and your good to go!
I’m starting to go through the store and cleaning up some categories. The first one I started on today are the Fenix Lights. While they’re a great product and I do well with them at the gunshows, it’s time to move on. I’ve reduced prices on most of the lights from 15-20% and will keep dropping the prices till they’re gone. If there are any items in that category you’re interested in, here’s your chance to buy them right!
This is about the end of our Christmas promotions. Starting today through midnite, Tuesday, 12/18/12 you can take a 10% discount on Hess and Bark River Knives by entering the word: CHRISTMAS in the Coupon Code box when you place an online order. Make sure you type CHRISTMAS in capital letters!! The discount will be applied to any of the Hess or Bark River Knives that are in stock. Sorry, no rain checks or backorders!
I just added around 45 Queen and Schatt & Morgan knives to the store this morning. Most of these are short run knives that Queen made to clean up some odds and ends. I made a deviation from the way I typically list every knife in inventory with these. You’ll find one listing per pattern/color, but there are several of the knives per pattern in stock. The only reason I did that is the handle material is virtually identical unlike the variation you’ll encounter with Stag or Wood.
So, in keeping with the Christmas sales I’ve been running, there’s an extra 10% discount applied to these knives that will stay in effect through midnite CST, Saturday, December 15. And allof them ship free to the US and Canada. I have mulitples on all of these knives, but they’re items that I can’t restock. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Starting tomorrow December 7, 2012, anyone purchasing one of our EDC knives will receive a $25 Gift Certificate with their purchase. This promotion will run through midnite, Tuesday, December 11, 2012.
I have several more EDC knives that I’ll add to the store later today.
The next specials up for the Christmas Season are 5 different Bark River knives. I’ve dropped the price an additional 10% below my current low price. Knives included are……
Gunny Black Canvas Aurora Antique Stag Bone Fox River Black Micarta Little Creek Black Micarta Special Hunting Black Canvas EDC Knife
The prices listed on the website for these 5 knives reflect the discount which will disappear at midnite December 5. I have a very limited number of these on hand AND the sale is limited to items on hand so don’t wait!!!!
During the month of September, when you purchase one of the Great Eastern Fixed Blade Hunters include an order for a matching Knife Leather Traditions sheath and receive a $25 gift certificate to use on your next purchase!!!
