The new Fox 573 FC is a sliver of a traditional knife that comes straight from the Fox Knives archives, updated for 2018 with carbon fiber. It’s a graceful design that looks as nice closed as it does open. No pocket clip of course, but the blade is secured with a crisp backlock.

The newest knife in the ongoing collaboration between Jesper Voxnaes and Fox Knives will be the Core. It’s simple and effective, like all the best Vox blades. The wide, sloping drop point blade is made from N690Co steel, and is secured with a nested linerlock. The skewed honeycomb pattern machined into the Core’s G-10 scales and an anodized backspacer give off a sophisticated vibe.

Designed by Avi Nardia, creator of the Krav Maga hand-to-hand combat system used by the Israeli Defense Force, the new Fox Knives Kravi Shai is a wicked little liner lock flipper with a dramatically recurved tanto blade made from 440C steel.

The locking version of the Fox Knives Pelican adds a liner lock and thumbtsud deployment to the striking cleaver blade shape. Options will include coated or uncoated N690Co blades and carbon fiber or G-10 handle scales.

The new Fox Pelican is designed by French knifemaker Kmaxrom and comes in both locking and non-locking versions. This, the non-locking friction folder, has a blade of N690Co steel with an extended tang. The G-10 scales are nicely contoured and will come in several color options.

It looks like Fox Knives has big plans for 2018. They brought more than a dozen new models to SHOT Show, including new collaborations with some of the biggest names in the knife world. Stay tuned!

Before departing to check out what Fox Knives cooked up for 2018, we asked CRKT designer TJ Schwarz for his favorite knife in CRKT’s 2018 lineup, and he went with the Caligo. Of course, he might be a tad partial since he was the one who designed it!
