How to Choose the Best Pocket Knife

Choosing a pocket knife can really be confusing when you are surrounded by models of different companies having all kinds of utilities. The best way to choose the knife is by first deciding your priorities. When you are sure of how you want to use the knife, you can get into the stores or shop online. You have a variety of knives to choose from based on price, design, brand and features. Once you decide your budget and utilities, you can make the right choice.

Decide Your Priorities

Since deciding what you want from your pocket knife is to be identified first, it is important to think about it. If you want the knife to help you in emergency situations in real life then a multipurpose knife with various tools will be best. Bit if the emphasis is on getting a small knife which can fit into a small space, then you should choose a tiny one. This will however just provide you with the functions of a knife and you will not get any additional benefit. Some people want a collector's item to make it a part of their display in the living room. This means they will look for beautiful and antique knives with jeweled finishes.

Quality of the Knife

Some people also want knives which can provide all kinds of trendy and new utilities. The design should also be very fashionable. But it is important that the blades be made of stainless steel if you want a pocket knife to last you for a long time. If you want to use the object heavily, then you have to pay attention to the material as well. It needs to be sturdy so that it can withstand rough use and will be sharp even after prolonged use. You should have a blade which will not rust quickly. There is provision to sharpen the knives if needed. This will make them last longer and thus give you more value for money.

Take a Look at the Blade

The type of blade also holds great importance when you buy a pocket knife. In some places, you are not allowed to keep switchblades and hence you have a choice between a folded and a fixed blade. Fixed blade knives have an exposed blade all the time and hence need to be kept in cover. Folding blades are therefore safer as you can keep the blade enclosed and unfold it only when needed. A good and strong grip is also necessary in a knife. Unless you can hold the object well in your hands, you will not be able to use it dexterously.

A Good Grip is Necessary

It is unwise to purchase a pocket knife which does not fit well into your palm. You should be able to exercise good control over it to be able to use it well. Otherwise, you will be prone to injuries. In addition, make sure that the design appeals to you as well. A coarsely made knife may cost less but you will not be happy to use it. If it has a clip to hang onto your apparel, then it will be easier for you carry it about too. It won't weigh down your pocket unnecessarily. You will also not have to search for the knife among other items in your pocket. By being particular about your wants, you will be able to make the right choice.
