Best Popular Mid-Priced Pocket Knife On Amazon

September 20, 2012, by Ken Jorgustin


There are quite a number of makes and models of pocket knives covering a wide range of price, quality, style and purpose. Buying a pocket knife is a personal choice of your own combination of preferences.

As I often do when looking to determine which is best for me, I check out who seems to carry just about everything, and I check out their high number of customer reviews, rankings and descriptions.

This is simply the result of searching a few parameters on Amazon.

I selected a middle price range of approximately $25 to $50 so as to avoid the cheap pocket knives while also overlooking the very expensive. I wanted a mid-range not-too-expensive pocket knife. I filtered out only the 4-star ratings or higher and then considered the number of reviews for each knife which indicates the popularity of the knife itself. What I came up with (at the time – things do change over time) is the following list.
