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).

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!

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.
