I have been at Knife Magazine for about a year and a half now, and I am still getting used to the publishing schedule. With Christmas a week away, it feels a bit strange to be trumpeting the arrival of our January 2020 issue, but that is in fact the case. The paper issue should be arriving in subscriber mailboxes in the next 7 to 10 days, depending on how snarled the USPS is with holiday deliveries.
Don’t want to wait for paper delivery, you can read it now by going to The Vault —> Magazine Archives, if you are a Premium Online Member. Don’t yet have Premium? It is normally $19.95 a year ($9.97 for existing Print Subscribers), but for a limited time you can get 25% off by entering the code XMAS2019 at checkout. I will even make it easy for you, all you need to do is click the link below to get started.
As you can see above, the cover article is one of the most interesting and amusing stories from the world of antique knife collecting. A “Rent-a-Bowie”? I won’t spoil it for you, but it is a definite must-read.
There are lots more feature articles, representing both the old and the new. From an historic display board of classic Western Knives, to field reviews of the Spyderco Respect and new Hogue/Doug Ritter RSK Mk1-G2.
And of course our regular columns by Knife Rights, AKTI, Bruce Voyles, Bernard Levine, and more.
