excited about this. I’m gonna do this.
All right, number one 920 18 based on what you guys bought
How’s it going guys? Welcome to knife banner and today we are looking over the top eight knives of 2018. Wow.
How excited are you? I’m stoked. I’m super stoked. So right now, just like we did last year, go down in the comments. And you guys guess what, number one knife 2018 is that’s important. It’s an important step in this process. Well, we’ll see what you guys come up with. And then you also at the end, you’re gonna be able to see what I thought was the best night for 2018 and what Kurt thought was the best night in 2018 it’s gonna be awesome. Awesome. Now, when we say the best Knife of 2018 that’s a hard it’s a hard thing to say it’s tough. It’s a tough thing to say. So what we do is we basis off of your dollars. So what you guys bought the most of us we base what the best knives are? Yep. So number eight in 2018 is one of my personal favorites this year. It is the copper matrix well the mini the copper mini matrix and so you get d two blade full copper handles on this deep carry pocket clip it’s going for about 5995 if you can find one in stock that’s not bad. Who knows when the when this video comes out if it’ll be in stock Yeah, you never know. Keep your eyes open now you can see this one has a beautiful patina on it because this one’s actually mine because we don’t have any in stock right?
I see this about every few days here and there in the office. And every few days it’s just slowly getting a better and better patina.
I’m actually taking a picture a day. Oh, that was honestly like in like six months we’ll have a cool slide show. Cool. So anyway, super great night for obvious reasons. It’s based on a very classic ZTE design beautiful skills that were with you. And due to blade men just can’t be 32 I like that enough. Especially for 50 was it 5995 5995 so that is the number eight knife according to you guys and what you guys bought this year, which is nuts because this just barely came out.
Oh man. It’s super nuts. It flew off the shelf. Alright, so
number seven. Got to keep it secret. I’ve got the knives here. I gotta pass it discreet like to Kurt.
Is that the right one? No, no, I’ve picked the wrong one. Okay, this is number seven. Here. I’ll take that one back. Okay,
Poker strike, auto. You got yourself aluminum scales, a copper coated blade. Get your lock here. These things just pop
up pretty good.
Great. Nice. Happy. Yeah. What’s the price point on this? 3995 that’s a
deal. 3995 for a super sweet snappy auto. Some you know it’s a little bit bulkier little bit more harder use than the Kalashnikov. Its tactical, a little more tactical. And then you know the desert warrior pattern. So it was the Booker strike was the the number seven Knife of of 2018. But we just pulled the desert, the desert warrior one because this is our favorite pattern. Yeah, in the deep carrier pocket clip. dk Are you carry pocket clip? Just great knife all the way around? Yeah. So there’s there’s a number seven. Now. I pass it to you once. Let’s do it again. Yeah,
let’s do it.
Number six is in the same family as the poker strike. Or we got
the Kalashnikov auto. This one is our Black Widow color series here. Got the same thing. Aluminum scales. You got the coated blade, and this one doesn’t have the safety but man, this thing just jumps out of your hand.
Dude, that’s the big differences when you saw the strike, strike hits good. Right. Let’s say it’s a good. Let’s compare sounds. Hey, listen.
yeah, like you get that bigger blade. It’s not lazy. But now that Kalashnikov, it hits hard, it jumps
and jumps. You got the deep carry pocket clip this wave design. I’ve always thought that a little funny, but it works
works and with deep carry once it goes in the pocket. We have like the red it definitely pops right your pocket. But when it goes in your pocket, you really don’t notice that too much. Yeah, on the pocket clip itself.
Yeah, this is a great knife a great honor. And this
is this is a brand new blade, plate HQ exclusive pattern that we have right now. So the Black Widow
black, the Black Widow.
Yeah, you don’t get them all. They’re hot.
All right. Let’s see here. I got a couple pages. Oh, and those Kalashnikovs. Go for about 40 to 95. right in that price range. You guys know it’s good deal. Always check the website for current pricing. If you’re watching this 10 years from when we filmed it. That night may not even exist anymore. It’s gonna
It’s gonna be different. Okay, so next up in the best nights, it’s actually a tie between a family of knives, the number
this this would be the number five knives five. They’re they’re tight. They’re tight five knives. Let’s see. Right. So we got the the buck 112 Auto, which is new this year. Yeah, super hot, super hot. I like that. And then we’ve got the buck 110 Auto as well. So both super great knives super classic. for a lot of years, a lot of us were getting these knives converted, just converting them ourselves, or having sending them somewhere else get converted, but caught on. And they finally made the sweet autos that you can buy straight from buck. And just awesome, Nigel.
So this is just size differences.
Size differences. Really. Yeah, I mean 10 to 112 Yeah, and that’s the same thing when between 110 and 112. Regular folder as well. It’s just sizes different which do you prefer? I like the 110. And the reason is, is because I got the exclusive 110 brass in my carta. Yeah, how could I not? That’s right. This comes into an exclusive brass in my car to guess when I can buy it.
I like the size of the 112 I yeah, that fits me.
Yeah the 112 this week it’s it’s tough not to get the my card on that my card and brass. I’ve been waiting my sucker. Yeah, it’s good stuff. So this is our number five Knife of 28. Team.
Before we jump into number four, let’s take a very sweet commercial break.
Let’s do it. What

Yeah. And the thing is, is like right now they’re on sale for 1999. That’s crazy. Like how you gonna? This is an incredible night for 1999. And so it’s no wonder I made number four for 2018. Right? Because it’s we’ve had it at a very low price all year, I think was around Black Friday, we dropped it down 1999 for you guys, and it’s still at 1999. So check her pricing on the website.

It’s the bench made bug out specifically in the range of green color. So you know with bench made bug out you got the f 30 v you got the FR and handles got the access lock, deep carry mini pocket catcliffe just everything. Everything beautiful about everything beautiful about Oh, look at that. Kurt’s got his on. No surprise. Let’s add no surprise. No surprise. Yeah, man. Love that night. Yeah, it’s it’s a great night. Honestly, when the blue one came out. I really liked it. But I was worried. I was like to lightweight. I’m gonna break it. It’s very blue. Yeah, well, and not only that, like, I was just worried, you know? No materials, like I’m gonna break it. Yeah. And then I was able to test one out got that Ranger green one from Hans, test it out. If you’re worried about breaking it down a bit beyond stupid with the thing and it’s still rocking, solid, incredible knife. So no, no wonder it made that number three
said this like 50 times but you put this thing in your pocket and it just disappears like it’s
not even I also hear that you can cook anything with a bug out.
You know what? I actually have a running joke with Jamie, our camera guy and I send him pictures from time to time of me preparing food with my bug out.

Kershaw launch for man.
onshore so super awesome knife. You got the 154 blade you got aluminum handles. Nice pocket clip. Cali legal all made in the USA and just snapping is it’s got the resin is snappy, it’s got the right snap so super great knife and you know the great thing is before before we started Kurt’s like these California people are ruining their they’re making the number one knife their knife and and we were all like, No, dude, this is a great box cutter like I know a lot of you not in California are buying this knife because it’s an awesome box.
Well, and it’s a legal knife in multiple states. Cal
not just California. If it’s legal in California, chances are it’s legal in most places. So my California people
I still got love.
So that is the number one Knife of 2018 is the Kershaw launch for super sweet knife and it comes with a bunch of different variations. There’s Damascus one there’s a bunch of colors.
I I like to hate. Yeah, but you just need to get one dude. it’s it’s it’s a good one.
It’s a good one. That’s a good one. Just get one. I know you’ll like it.
Plus, I didn’t pick it.
You guys picked. There you go. So Exactly. Alright, so now the big question.
Ooh, I like this question.
So we went through what you guys have chosen as the the top eight, nine to 2018 we’ve seen some of the best access most sold accessories. Yeah. What’s your favorite knife? 2018.
Well, I have it right here. I don’t know what it is. Yeah, it is the Guardian tactical recon 035 this thing is phenomenal. Phenomenal. is a new knife this year, an ETF nonetheless. It came out of nowhere. Like these guys hit the market and just took the ground running. This thing is awesome. It’s got ceramic bearings. Yep. Underneath the actuator. So that’s super cool. This thing pops. like no other. Oh tff I mean, it’s top of the line.
Yeah, I love that. I need to get one but I just can’t justify spending more than like 30 or 40 bucks.
So much fun. I know. It’s so good. It’s so much fun. I might have to Yeah,
so there’s there’s Kurtz. I love that knife for 2018 All right, my topic. I haven’t when I What do you have a tie? I’m nervous. I couldn’t I couldn’t not have a tie this compete. It’s I sat down I weighed this out guys. It had to be too I couldn’t pick one. Okay, how did you see it? Alright, so the first one is the job is ultra dense young
with with that titanium in my carta. Oh Tonto. This was this was my tide favorite Knife of the year when these dropped this year that I missed the boat. I hesitated one day if I hesitated one day and
all gone that’s all it takes. This thing is awesome. So this is a the first run of job is production knives that he did. I think reality reality made them and they’re amazing. I found there so no other nice that feels as sweet and smooth as my bench made mini access since I started here. Yeah, except for this one. This one feels so great. And I see
it you can see this is me looking and envy
and here’s the other here’s the other thing is that pocket clips a little loud. I don’t I don’t even care I don’t even love it. I love that pocket clip is because the knife is so good. The knife is so good and and it’s not contrived. Like this is Travis This is who Oh yeah, yeah, I mean he’s not trying to be like I’m tough. It’s like no this is just to chop is it’s so good.
That’s skeleton key right there. Oh yeah, it’s cool. It’s just got all the touches all the touches my current
job is is a cool guy. So it’s like on top of everything else you’re supporting a good guy that knife is solid. All right, and then my my won’t just come pick one. So the other one that tied, dude JMS people yeah it’s a good one giant most people do and when Kurt talks about hesitating on a knife we got the my Carter versions of these in and I hesitated by a day and I missed them you guys bought them all they were gone.
