Multi-purpose camping knives probably never looked like this. However, it’s fun to imagine a cave man creating a portable tool that can cut, hammer, and scoop all in one neat device strapped to his loincloth.

We’ve come a long way since stone age tools and knives. Today Engraved Kershaw Knives are the pinnacle of the pocket knife industry. Kershaw stands for quality, life-time guaranteed knives. The Scallion Camo Knife and the Leek Knife are two of the most popular ones today. Kershaw has developed a winning combination of features:

  • SpeedSafe® –Our assisted-open patented feature.
  • Flipper–A stainless steel protrusion near the tang of the blade to make it easy for you to open.
  • Frame Lock–A safety feature to keep your knife open while you are using it.

The 3 Best USA-Made Barlow Knives

Use Your Barlow Every Day
Use Your Barlow Every Day

When people ask me about the barlow knives, I ask them to let me know which “barlow” they want to know about. The word barlow has 2 meanings. The first meaning is the name of an American company that used to make pocket knives, tape measures, and key chains. They were all high quality, and made in  America. USA-made items were very popular, and still are. The Barlow company was sold to another company in 2007 approximately. Then that company was sold to a third company shortly after.

The second meaning of “barlow” is a style of pocket knife that dates back to the 1600’s in England. This is the knife that George Washington used. It still gets a ton of Google searches today.

It is these barlow knives that I am showing you today. These have 2 stainless steel blades, a slightly teardrop-shaped handle, and a large metal bolster.

3 Tricks You Can Do With a Fruit Knife

Carved Apple Brothers

How many ideas can you come up with, using a folding fruit knife and some edible sculpture objects? Folding pocket fruit knives can go with you to any party and help you brighten things up. Apples, watermelons, other melons, and pumpkins aren’t the only objects of your artwork. Try mangos, oranges, and pineapples, too.

Of course, there is the usual use of a fruit knife….using it to extract a test plug from a melon to test the color and taste of the fruit without having to destroy the whole thing. This is what they do at the fruit warehouses, and in the fields. This picture shows a tester that went a little too far and carved out several “test” plugs. But that’s ok. Someone will volunteer to eat the mistake.

Stainless steel fruit and vegetable knives come with plastic handles or stainless steel handles. Some have serrated blades for use on tougher fruits.
