Choosing a Pocket Knife
Choosing a pocket knife may be harder than you think. For instance, you will need to know the number of blades you want. Single blade pocket knives are easy to use and simplistic in design. You have one blade and these are typically sturdy and built strongly. If you want something for more than one job then a multi-blade knife may be your best bet where you can choose from two to four blades. Last but not least are multi-tools where you get more than just a blade - you also get tools on your knife.
Choosing a serrated, partially serrated, or plain knife is also a consideration. If you want something that cuts well then a serrated knife is a good option but keep in mind that a serrated blade is going to be less graceful than a plain knife. Each has its pros and cons depending on what you plan to use the blade for in the first place.
Choosing the blade length is another consideration. Lengths range from small (under 2.75 inches) to large blades, which are well over four inches in length. Small blades are not going to be as versatile or as strong as a larger blade but these are easier to carry and legal in most situations. A large blade is going to have what you need in size but is not very practical to carry around in your pocket every day. '
Blades vary in style and here are some terms to be familiar with. Clip Point, Tanto Point, Trailing Point, Straight Back, Wharncliffe, Pen, Drop Point, Spear Point, Hawkbill, Sheepsfoot, Needle Point, and Spey. These each have their own advantages and work well for different uses. For instance, the Drop Point style of blade are ideal for skinning and piercing while the Straight Back Blade is an all-purpose knife that works well for slicing and chopping and a style that is popular for kitchen knives due to this reason.
