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.
