On the Horizon
This section is dedicated to new products that we are working on adding to our site. The decision to add a new product will be its overall quality, functional usefulness and most important, our endorsement of it as something we would use ourselves. If it passes our test then we feel we can comfortably provide it to others.
Benchmade Knives coming soon – We have decided to start carrying the line of Benchmade knives. Many of us at HAO have personally carried Benchmade knives and have always found them to perform very well even under the harshest conditions. We decided that it was time we start stocking some of their more popular models. Benchmade knives are all USA made and that of course is one of our top requirements. The overall quality of these knives and the company’s warranty and service reputation made it an easy decision for us to include them as a key product on our site. If you do not find the specific Benchmade model you are looking for, shoot us a quick email and we will provide you a price and availability. Benchmade Knives is a US leader in overall knives designed for EDC, LE and Military. They build knives to be used under any conditions and circumstances.
Custom Knife Sheath
One item we have had great success in marketing is the Chris Reeve Green Beret and Pacific knives. No doubt that the Chris Reeve staff has done one outstanding job in building one quality and well made product. The Pacific knife seems to be in top demand and while it has little if any limitations, we have been asked if an optional leather sheath is available.
While Chris Reeve does offer a black pouch sheath, it is an okay sheath but really does not complement the rugged, no nonsense features of the Pacific. In addition it just does not pass our test as a field / battle ready product.
In lieu of this we are in the process of working with a sheath maker that has made some of the finest replacement sheaths we have ever bought and tested. He has made sheath replacements for the Ka-Bar and Gerber Mark II knives equal to or better than the original manufacturers. These sheaths feature, top quality leather, brass rivets and tied down to adapt to any type of equipment, keeper straps that are designed for quick deployment, optional stone pouch and features that both the sportsman, military and Law Enforcement may find useful.
Don’t mistake our intent — the Chris Reeve Spec Ops sheath is unmatched in overall quality and functionality and complements the Pacific and Green Beret Knives to a tee. But if you are looking for a rugged well made optional leather sheath that will be designed and look much like a Johnson riveted sheath for a Randall #18, then we may just have what you are looking for. We should have a few of these available for sale near the end of December 2008 in both plain face and with stone pouch. Check our site as we will post pictures of these new products as soon as they are available.
- 06/10/2017 Update – Our sheath maker is not making any sheaths at this time so if you see inventory it means we have that time in stock, but once inventories are depleted it may be some time before we have more back in stock and the price will probably nudge a bit north due to ever increasing cost of materials.

Just added to the High Adventure Outfitters site is the Benchmade Infidel Knife. The Infidel, released by Benchmade Knives, it one finely crafted out the front (OTF) knife. The knife holds true to all the Benchmade knife products and you will not be disappointed in its quality and performance. We offer this unique item (BENCHMADE INFIDEL MODEL BM-3300 & BM-3300BK) IN BOTH PLAIN & BLACK COATED EDGE. Check this out on our site as it will be offered for sale very soon.

Bark River STS Knives (02/12/16)Product Update)
The Bark Rvier STS series of knives is being discontinued. We will have a few select STS-5’s and STS-8’s in stock. We will be receiving some handle scales that are interchangable with all the STS series knives. Check our our site products under Bark River Knives or give us a call as our inventory will change periodially.
- Bark River Trakker – ( 2016 Limited Edition Release)
We have just received in a very limited number of Bark River Trakker Knives. These were initially released last year and sold out within days. The 2016 Trakker is an inch longer for better balance and handling. If interested we have them listed on our site under Bark River Knives. Bark River usually makes a run of knives and then moves on to different models so we may not see more Trakker Knives in stock until next year.

Command I and II’s Most of these knives are New In Box and in unused and unsharpened condition.
