Top Rated Folding Pocket Knives

You want a pocket knife that is crafted from high quality materials and will deliver years of reliable performance. A good blade should combine good edge retention with the ease of re-sharpening and must be rust resistant. Consider how your pocket knife will be used, if it is primarily used for small tasks such as cutting cords or opening packages, opt for a small light weight knife. For larger jobs or outdoor use for hunting and camping consider a larger more heavier knife with blades and handles designed for those purposes. Some of our favorite folding knives brands include Benchmade, Buck Knives, Case, Cold Steel and Gerber. There are literally hundreds of choices from top quality manufacturers. The heart and soul of any knife is its blade, a knife should be razor sharp with a blade or blades that provide strength, hardness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and edge retention. Look for handles that provide you with a comfortable non-slip grip. There are basically three types of folding knives, single blade, multi-blade and multi-tool.
