What makes a good knife

  1. 1. What makes a good Knife ?People who are interested in purchasing a new knife for themselves should askthemselves "What makes a good knife?" and do their research to decide justexactly what sort of knife they will want to get for themselves. Fortunately mostknives have the same basic qualities. Here is what to look for in a good knife.One of the most important aspects to look into is size. While large knives are greatfor action movies and perfect for those who want to start a knife collection to lookat or to use as decorative objects most people who just want a basic knife to usewill do well with just purchasing a smaller size knife they can easily carry withthem in their pocket. These types of knives typically lock into place making themsafe to carry and easy to access. One handy feature to look for is a pocket clip thatmakes it easy to secure into place on your clothing.Next one should look at the size of the blade of the knife. For the usual pocketknife that one will carry with them they can look for a blade that is as small as 2.5inches up to 5 or 6 inches. This length is great for enabling the carrier to easily gettheir knife out and cut materials without having to worry about extra bulkweighing them down.
  2. 2. The blade type is also an important aspect to look into when trying to find a goodknife. Stainless has long been one of the most favored materials to make a goodblade on a knife. Not only does it get and stay extremely sharp but it is also verydurable and will last you for many years. Stainless is also fairly easy to take care ofonly requires the basic sharpening you would do with any knife. Knives also havedifferent edges to consider. Depending upon what you are using your knife for youcan choose from the popular combo edge, a Teflon coated edge, or just a plainedge.The handle of the knife is something that many people do not think about whenthey are looking for a good knife. Shoppers can find a plethora of handles tochoose from whether they want a nice rubberized handle that is easy to grip or forthose who want a more decorative handle there are many different designs tochoose from. There is everything from knives with camo patterned handles toknives with handles in the shapes of motorcycles there is something for everycollector out there.Lastly price should be taken into consideration. Many stores and web sites try tooverprice their knives but quality knives do not have to cost an arm and leg. Forexample at one site a textured aluminum handled knife with a plain edge thatlasts for many years only costs $5.32. If shoppers do their research they will bepleasantly surprised to see that good knives can also be found at good prices.In This Shop you will find good Quality Knifes for a good price
