Smoky Mountain Knife Works National Knife Day Sale

National Knife Day is just around the corner on the 24th of August, and it’s a great day for us EDCers to celebrate one of our favorite carry items. Its origins are unclear, although some suggest that it’s because on this date in 1838 Rezin Bowie wrote a letter claiming he was the creator of the iconic design. But we don’t need any details to celebrate the crude tool that has accompanied mankind throughout his survival during the early days of civilization that evolved into the practical implements and works of art that we can carry today.

National Knife Day has been celebrated since 2011, making this the 10th time we get our chance to raise our blades in unison, and appreciate this simple and elegant tool for all the utility it’s provided us for centuries. To celebrate this occasion, Smoky Mountain Knife Works is holding one of their biggest sales yet, including in-store exclusive and customized models. Here are some of our recommendations from their extensive online catalog.

The CIVIVI Kiri-EDC, designed by Italian knife enthusiast and reviewer Alessandra de Santis, is a modern take on the traditional Japanese kiridashi, transformed into a convenient neck knife. A sharp point and a utilitarian, chisel-ground, 1.8" cutting edge give you good piercing and cutting performance for general EDC tasks, while the 9Cr18MoV construction means it resists wear and corrosion well. Three different points with jimping plus the forward finger choil give you excellent working ergonomics despite its size and lack of scales. A double-sided bottle opener is integrated into the handle, making this a lightweight, multi-purpose, and value-packed performer.
