Things to consider before purchasing:
Before you but into a knife that you will probably have for years to come, there are some things you need to consider beforehand. There are dozens of factors that need to be accounted for when purchasing a knife but we have cut down the most important ones and put them on a list for you to take a look at to ensure you are getting the best deal possible. Here are some things you need to pay attention to when looking to obtain a knife for yourself:
- Durability: When it comes to a pocket/survival knife, you will of course need to look out for its durability. A knife needs to be as sturdy as it can get especially if you are going to be using it under harsh conditions. Make sure the knife you are buying into is perfect when it comes to durability. One way you can ensure the knife is durable is by looking at reviews of people under the product category of durability. This will make it so you do not get a faulty knife that needs to be replaced only after a couple of months of use.
- Sharpness: The second most important factor you will need to account for is the sharpness of the blade you are purchasing. Unless you are just a collector looking to get a knife that will sit in your closet, you should really make sure the blade is sharp enough for practical use. If you are going to be using it as an EDC knife, make sure the knife has been sharpened at least at an angle of 15 to 20 degrees. This is the typical sharpness of a blade whether it be for your kitchen or the outside world.
- Grip: To evaluate whether or not the knife is comfortable you have to look at the build of the handle. We prefer if the knife has a thumb rest as that ensures that the knife you are purchasing has the foremost build when it comes to the grip. This thumb space provides the user with a safe and comfortable holding position to make sure you can use the knife for long periods of time.
