Recent Folding Knife Reviews

Petzl Spatha

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great little knife, that will take a bite out of your salami, but not out of your pocketbook. A few years back, I was looking for a decent lightweight knife for my hiking ditty bag. But the top rated knives were really expensive, some in excess of a hundred bucks! Though I like quality, I'm also frugal (or cheap, depending on how you want to look at it). When this knife came out, it got great reviews, so I picked one up. When this knife was first released, it came in two models: a longer straight-edged… Full review

Gerber Mini Covert FAST

rated 5 of 5 stars As a modern version of the fixed blade Fairburn knife of WW II, it is an excellent tactical knife. It may not be viewed well in NJ and other "non-stiletto" states, however. As a folder, it is well made and often used by the military. This is not a toy. This is a tactical combat knife with a real backstory. Those who remember WW II and the fixed blade version of the tiny stiletto designed for the military recognize this as its modern cousin. It is a durable blade. Most users strop their blades, but… Full review

Spyderco K2 Folder

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a big folder! But light and ready to do what you ask of it. As you can see it's big. I've got a nice patina on my blade from so much use. If you got the money and want a big folder this is it!! Full review

Spyderco Ulize

rated 5 of 5 stars This is probably not the best hiking knife. It was designed by I believe a German police officer. Its big blade is meant for slicing. I do own one and it could preform in the woods, but there are better choices. As you can see, it's not a wide blade. In fact the knife itself closed isn't wide, which is nice because it allows for more pocket space. As I said it could be used as a hiking/backpacking knife, but there are better choices. On the plus side, if you do buy this knife, money goes to injured… Full review

Spyderco Manix 2 XL

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great knife for hiking, camping, etc. It has a nice solid feel. Lock up is great on this knife too. I had the EDC forum version of this knife, which was cool because the handles glowed in the dark and it was the XL version. This is a nice beefy knife. It can baton if you need it to. It glides open and locks solid. They also make a lighter version, but it doesn't feel as beefy as a standard version. You can count on this knife when the chips are down. Full review

Spyderco Delica

rated 5 of 5 stars The Spyderco Delica 4 part-serrated FRN is likely the best EDC knife available. Bought this after owning a gen 1 Endura full serrated FRN for about 20 years. The 2.9" blade is just the right size for everyday tasks. Not too small or dainty, and not so big that it might exceed legal limits in some places or raise eyebrows when in use in everyday situations. The razor sharp VG10 blade has a notched thumb ramp that ends at the apex of the thumb hole giving the thumb a good purchase on the blade when… Full review

Spyderco Military

rated 5 of 5 stars My no 1 camping knife. I use it since 2010 and it has no signs of wear. It is the best knife for camping because it is super sharp and durable and it is lightweight, which is most important when you have to carry a heavy backpack. Full review

Gerber Obsidian

rated 5 of 5 stars I like this knife for a number of reasons. Notably it has a double lock mechanism so it will never shut on my fingers. The compact size means it doesn’t take up valuable space and it weighs very little – 124 gms. The open design allows dirt and grit to fall through and not jam it up. The blade is 7cm or 2.75” in the old scale, the steel holds an edge well and cuts everything I've needed to date — opening dehydrated meal packets, cutting rope, fishing line and fruit. Additionally, there is… Full review

EKA Swede 8 Wood

rated 5 of 5 stars The Eka 8 is a Swedish folding knife with Sandvik 12c27 blade. 8 stands for 8 cm (3.15") Just enough for everyday use. The geometry of the blade is good for the hunter and the camper. Not the best wood carving knife, but that's kind of obvious with this blade. Light to carry. Ease of Use: Smooth opening, great lock, sharp and easy to sharpen steel. Features: Hole for cord. A short leather cord with a knot is great for getting it out of the pocket and gives some extra control when hands are bloody… Full review
