The CRKT Pilar has been a firm favourite ever since it was launched and as soon as we saw it our thoughts immediately turned to how great it would be as a non-locking, UK friendly carry knife with, of course, the Heinnie® red G10 scales.
Many thanks for all your votes!
It was actually a close run thing.
Here are some of the other contenders and highlights of 2020!
Welcome to the fold Real Steel Heinnie Haynes® Luna Red G10. This lovely little UK carry folder joins the ever increasing collaborations between Heinnie Haynes and some of the best knife manufacturers in the world. The blade is made from D2 which incredibly sharp out of the box and is a hard resilient steel so won't need sharpening very often. It has a pocket clip and lanyard hole for carry options and to customise.
The Boker Plus Heinnie® Tech Tool 1 is one of our favourites here at Heinnie®. It's a simple design with one Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade and a Heinnie® red, G10 handle. There's a pocket clip too and a glass breaker on one end.
Always there as a loyal companion, under the radar yet continually saving the day! No it's not a cartoon, sidekick hamster it's the newest UK carry knife designed by Heinnie Haynes®...the "Penfold". This stunning little folder has all our favourite things; bang up to date S35VN stainless steel, Titanium handle, non-locking sub three inch, UK carry blade and hidden lanyard bar incorporated into the handle.
This brand new version has had the Heinnie Haynes® treatment, which means it has the famous red handle, is non-locking so UK legal carry, is numbered on the back spine and has the Heinnie® 'H' on the back of the handle. Everything else is the same, compact, "unputdownable" design and a gap for a neck chain or lanyard.
Stunning in appearance and in use, the Stella boasts a VG10 blade in a greywash finish for that worn, "lived in" look. Similar to the Luna, apart from the opening groove the blade is completely unhindered, which allows the user to get maximum leverage of the knife. To make sure there is confidence when using this slip joint, jimping has been milled under the belly of the blade near the ricasso which when pressured is used impedes the user from cutting themself. The ¾ stop of the knife also guarantees that extra bit of peace of mind when opening and closing the knife.
It has proven to be an extremely popular folding knife due to it's compact but extremely practical, solid design. The MKM Isonzo Heinnie® Edition Cleaver has no lock so is legal to carry in the UK and so will become your next favourite EDC folder thanks in part to it's sturdy and low riding pocket clip. It also proudly displays a Heinnie black and red G10 handle and back spacer slash lanyard loop.
The Boker Plus Mini Tracker, designed by Dave Wenger, impresses as an extremely stable outdoor knife with a substantial blade made of 1095 carbon steel, which has an excellent corrosion protection thanks to the abrasion resistant powder coating.
The Fallkniven X Series F1 is, arguably, the worlds most functional and high performing survival knife. It is certainly one of the best made with the best materials and at a price that, considering the spec, is a bargain! The X series certainly has the X factor!
So let's have a look at the QSP Penguin and consider its many, many positive attributes. It has a rock solid blade locked into place with the liner, D2 blade steel, sheepsfoot shape, dual thumb stud, stainless pocket clip, lanyard hole and a very tough linen micarta handle.
The Imalent LD70 is an extraordinary light. Not only can you watch the light and feel the heat grow as you cycle through output levels but you can watch what this mini badboy is pumping out by keeping one eye on the OLED screen.
The Lion Steel Bestman 13 Micarta has all the exceptional qualities one has come to expect from a manufacturer of such class. The blades are bang up to date M390 stainless steel with a nail notch on both sides and both have a beautifully streamlined shape.
The award-winningSpyderco Para 3 Plain Black is rapidly redefining the state of the art in ultralight cutting tools. For tactical end users who prefer subdued blade finishes, this revolutionary design is now also available with a stealthy black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
As a result of overwhelming customer feedback, the Benchmade Bugout has been scaled down in the form of the 533 Mini Bugout. The Mini Bugout maintains the same material configuration as its full-sized counterparts in a 42g package.
The Rough Ryder Reserve Kayak is a modern take on a traditional canoe pattern. Designed by Andy Armstrong, it features two D2 tool steel reverse tanto blades with a brushed satin finish, deep swedging, half stops and match strike pulls.
