The Best Pocket Knives to Add to Your Every Day Carry
Unless you’re getting on an airplane, you should always have a well-made pocket knife on you. Pocket knives come in handy more often than you might think. Whether your significant other needs help opening a gift or you need to cut a piece of twine while working in your garden, you need a pocket knife that can meet any challenge.
If you don’t know much about pocket knives, then choosing one can feel intimidating. As long as you stick with one of these five, you can’t go wrong.
Fox Knives SURU
Does thinning hair have you feeling like less of a man? Fox Knives SURU is one of the few men’s accessories that will change that. It makes more sense to schedule an Advanced Robotic Hair Regeneration treatment at BSG, but to each his own.
The SURU is a military-grade pocket knife that folds and unfolds easily. It has an unbelievably resilient blade that rarely needs sharpening, even if you use it outdoors often. It’s so impressive that it one the 2018 Overall Knife of the Year award from Blade Magazine.
If you want a small, lightweight pocket knife that doesn’t cost much money, then you should choose the CRKT Pilar by Jesper Voxnaes. The blade measures a mere 2.402-inches. When open, the knife (including the handle and blade) has an overall length under 6 inches.
Perhaps most importantly, you can find the Pilar for less than $50. That makes it one of the most affordable men’s accessories that you can carry.
For about $115, it’s hard to beat the Kershaw Blur pocket knife. Its diamond-like carbon coated blade stays sharp and resists corrosion. Generally, it’s not a good idea to use a pocket knife on yourself. You could, however, use the Kershaw Blur to get rid of that terrible man bun that you’ve been sporting for way too long. (That’s a joke. Please don’t try to cut your hair with a pocket knife!)
The Blur also has a SpeedSafe assisted opening that makes it possible for you to open the blade with one hand. Whether you’re cutting a rope or defending yourself, the Blur is an excellent men’s accessory for your everyday carry.
Chris Reeve Knives Impinda
Chris Reeve designs some of the world’s best knives. The Impinda has a titanium handle and stonewashed, hand-sharpened blade that will never let you down. This particular knife has an internal spring that makes it easy to open.
That might sound dangerous at first. Once you’ve gotten familiar with pocket knives, though, you’ll understand that a sharp blade and easy opening are two of the safety features that you want most.
The Impinda weighs just 3.38 ounces, so it won’t weigh you down during the day. It’s the perfect option for flexitarians who might want to gather berries in the woods before preparing a steak over an open flame.
The Benchmade Griptilian knives give you plenty of options. For instance, you can choose a plain or serrated blade edges, nylon or G10 handle material, and satin or coated blade finish.
No matter which option you choose, your Griptilian knife will weigh less than 4 ounces. The blade is sharp enough that you might be tempted to shave with it like Crocodile Dundee. That’s not a great idea. Instead, schedule a hot towel straight razor shave at BSG. Save the Griptilian for activities that don’t involve your skin.
With thousands of pocket knives to choose from, it’s easy to get confused. None of these five designs will let you down, though.
