Ek Knives Reborn

The Ek Commando Knife is one of the most important pure fighting knives of all time. Its maple handle slabs, poured lead rivets, and long double edged blade should hold a special place in the heart of anyone who appreciates knives, history, and design. The Ek Knives name has been passed around between various entities over the years and most recently it has settled with an American company who knows a thing or two about classic combat knives…

Ka-Bar is reintroducing the Ek Knives brand under the name Ka-Bar Ek Combat Knife Company and they officially released their first knife, the Model 4, today.

The Model 4 manages to look both very modern and unmistakably like an Ek at the same time. It features a 6.625″ double edge blade that is ground 1095 Cro-Van steel and given a parkerized finish. The handles are made from texture glass filled nylon which is a functional choice for a knife like this. The sheath is a self-locking design that is similar to Ka-Bar’s other hard sheaths.

It warms my heart to see a classic back on the market. Check out the Ek Model 4 at Ka-Bar. You can see more about the history of of Ek Knives at EkKnives.com.

Massive Independence Day Markdown on Smith & Bradley Sans-13


I am still wearing my Smith & Bradley Sans-13 watch daily. It has served me very well and I can recommend it to anyone looking for an American made “tool watch” – especially when they are marked down from $399 to $235 to celebrate Independence Day!

The special pricing is good through the 4th of July. The website says that only 50 watches will be sold at the special pricing but if you mention that you came from JTT in the comments of your order, Smith & Bradley will make sure you get the special pricing.

Check out the Sans-13 at a special price.

That Triple 7 Gear CORE Nano Wallet, It’s So Hot Right Now…

Triple 7 Gear’s crowd funding campaign for the CORE Nano Wallet is smashing all expectations. It currently sits at almost 3X it’s original funding level and there are still 11 days left in the campaign. The result of such success is that stretch goals are being smashed and value is being added.


Triple 7 Gear set a stretch goal of $20,000 to add RFID blocking material to the wallet and that goal was smashed over night. So, now you can add RFID blocking to already long list of cool features.

There are still great benefits left for backing the project. Check out the CORE Nano Wallet on Kickstarter.


Tahoma Field Knife Kydex from InnerBark Outdoors

The Tahoma Field Knife, a large fixed blade designed by Andy Tran of InnerBark Outdoors and produced by TOPS Knives, is one of the finest large survival knives on the market. It comes from TOPS with functional sheath but there is always room for improvement.

InnerBark Outdoors worked with Red Feather Gear to develop is a kydex dangler sheath for the Tahoma Field Knife. The sheath has a welt to add rigidity which is nice for such a heavy knife. It also features a closed dangler loop that can not be accidentally opened and a well formed thumb ramp to aid in removing the knife from the sheath.

Check out the Tahoma Field Knife Kydex Sheath at InnerBark Outdoors. The price is quite reasonable considering the size of the sheath.


New from Magpul: M-LOK Tripod Adapter

The latest M-LOK accessory from Magpul is sure to make the day of precision shooters everywhere. The M-LOK Tripod Adapter mounts directly to any metal M-LOK compatible rail (not intended for use on polymer hand guards) and allows your rifle to attach directly to any tripod with the common Manfrotto RC2/Q2 interface without the need for a separate saddle accessory.

Magpul has taken care to make the adapter is low profile as possible and bevel the corners so that it does not become a snag hazard when it is mounted to your rifle but not in use on a tripod. They have also built in recoil mitigation lugs to ensure that the fit doesn’t loosen with time and battering from recoil.
