What is the Best Pocket Knife of All Time?

How to Find The Best Pocket Knife of All Time
How to Find The Best Pocket Knife of All Time

How do you choose the best pocket knife? Some of the new tactical knives have really cool designs. But, since they don’t have a history of popularity, they can’t be considered in this contest. They may be popular now, but that might be short-lived.

The winner must have a history of popularity for many years. How about 1964? If a knife style was invented in that year, like the Buck 110 Folding Hunter, would that be a long enough history? What about the 1600’s? That time frame would certainly be a long enough history. That’s 400 years, or 4 centuries. If a pocket knife style is still as popular now, as it was 400 years ago, that would make it the winner. So that’s how I came up with the winning knife. If you don’t agree, please post your comments here.

I believe the Best Pocket Knife of All Time is the Barlow Knife. Once used by George Washington, and Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.

Buck Knives have been around since 1902. The style of knife that you think of when you hear the word Buck is the model 110 Folding Hunter shown here. Or maybe you would think of the non-folding hunting knife like the Buck® Kalinga, also shown here. Either way, you will be surprised at what Buck came up with recently. The tide of popularity in knives has been going toward the tactical-looking knives. So the leaders at Buck didn’t want to miss the boat on this. They came up with some new models recently in the tactical area.
