What defines a pocket knife?

We believe that a well-made pocket knife is an essential tool for anyone who needs a reliable cutting edge on the go. But what exactly defines a pocket knife, and what sets it apart from other types of knives?  

First and foremost, a pocket knife is designed to be compact and portable. Unlike larger knives that are meant for heavy-duty use, a pocket knife is meant to be carried in your pocket or clipped to your belt for everyday use. As such, it's typically much smaller and lighter than other types of knives, making it easy to carry with you wherever you go.

Another defining characteristic of a pocket knife is its folding blade. Unlike fixed-blade knives, which have a blade that is permanently attached to the handle, a pocket knife has a blade that can be folded back into the handle when not in use. This not only makes the knife more compact and easier to carry, but it also helps protect the blade from damage and keeps it sharp for longer.

In addition to its folding blade, a pocket knife also typically has a locking mechanism to keep the blade securely in place when in use. This helps prevent accidental injuries and ensures that the knife is safe and easy to use.

Finally, a pocket knife is designed to be versatile and useful in a wide range of situations.

Whether you need to open a package, cut through rope or fabric, or prepare food while camping, a good pocket knife is up to the task. That's why many pocket knives feature multiple blades or tools, such as a saw or scissors, to provide even more functionality in a compact package.
