Your Favorite Small Pocket Knife

A small pocket knife is likely an every-day carry item for most who are reading this, and they are a great little tool for a multitude of uses.

Chances are you also have more than just a “small” pocket knife to choose from, however you probably carry that one particular special little knife because…it’s small! It fits easily in your pocket or clips to your pocket without being a nuisance while still getting most jobs done.

So, what is the best small pocket knife to carry?
Answer: The one that you carry!

Here are some more thoughts on this practical little tool, and lets find out which one is your favorite in that category…


 
We all might have a slightly different definition of “small” when it comes to pocket knives. They make some REALLY SMALL knives.

However I’m referring to a knife that is small, but big enough to be practical for most ordinary functions without bordering on ridiculous.

 

Common Uses For A Small Pocket Knife

THE most common use for my own small knife is opening cardboard boxes by slicing through the shipping tape (can you say, “Amazon Prime”? 😉 ).

Other uses might include:

-Removal of the foil that covers the cork on a good bottle of wine
-Opening letters and other mail packages
-Opening a bag of feed
-While fishing, cutting line
-While camping, cutting cordage, string
-Fire-making, shaving tinder
-While eating, cutting, peeling
-Splinter
-Hangnail

The many uses for a pocket knife are seemingly limitless as well as personal.

I very much like the straight edge blade (as opposed to a serrated edge). I also happen to like the simple “drop point” blade design.

There are plenty of good brand pocket knives from companies such as:

CRKT
Gerber
Buck
SOG
Spyderco
Kershaw

(and there are many others)
