The Newest Best Pocket Knife

The newest best pocket knife this year is made by Leatherman®.

These are the features that earned it our highest approval:

  • Small enough to keep in your pocket, yet big enough to do bigger jobs.
  • Super sharp blade. It comes very sharp, and stays sharp.
  • Light weight, because of the “holey” design. Both sides of the handle and the blade have this feature.
  • Opens easily with the thumb hole.
  • Locks in the open position, so it won’t accidentally close on you.
  • Minimal but safe handle design, which shows off the blade.
  • Stainless steel pocket clip with an integral bottle opener.
  • Sturdy liner lock mechanism.
  • Partially serrated blade can do the heavy jobs of cutting rope.
  • Made in the USA of U.S. and foreign components.

Secret–The Best Assisted-Open Pocket Knives

Here's A Secret Just For You
Here’s A Secret Just For You

Here are the Best Assisted-Open Pocket Knives all in one place. All 2 dozen of them. Different knife manufacturers make knives that are easy to open. Once you start to open one of the assisted-open knives, it takes it the rest of the way. These are not switch-blades. These are much safer and easier to use. The best feature is, you only need one hand to operate them. The mechanism that Kershaw uses their own “Speedsafe” system.

Here are my 2 favorites. One by Kershaw, and the other one by Kutmaster….

I found the best rescue pocket knives on display in Cleveland Ohio last week. Gordon Blake, of Big River Marketing is showing us the Heavy Duty Rescue Knife (with yellow bolster). In his other hand is the “Ball Bearing Assisted Opening Professional Grade Rescue Knife”. It opens with a breeze, using only one hand. Both knives are made by Utica Cutlery Company (the Kutmaster line).

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.

Our report for the best pocket knife for June 2017 may surprise you. It is highly popular for its value. The perceived value is $7 to $10, but the sale price is only $1.99 each. Free setup, also! If you have a promotional campaign in mind, and have hundreds or thousands of people on your gift list, this knife is your best choice. The Maxam Digital Camo Knife wins the prize this month over all other knives. It has been hard to keep enough inventory on the shelves for this sought-after economy pocket knife.

Camouflage has remained very popular the last few years. There is a subculture of camo enthusiasts that like to own many different items with the camo look. Camo hats, jackets, pants, cell phone cases, back packs, mugs, beer can insulators, and pencils are super popular.

Someone Say Pocket Knives?

The 3 best pocket knives of June 2017 are the most popular sellers for us.

  1. The openness of the Gerber Mini Paraframe’s handle is the biggest attraction for knife lovers. It not only looks good. It makes the knife lighter, and a better EDC (every day carry) knife.

2. Camo has been big, and still is this month. Dako knives are made in China, which makes them more affordable. The stainless steel blade is sandblasted for that attractive foggy look.

3. Kutmaster designs and makes some unique patterns in pocket knives. Rescue knives are popular with police, firemen, and emergency medical personnel. This knife is the answer to their need for a compact version of a rescue knife. The black blade goes with the black handle very well. Nice job, Kutmaster!
