Recent Folding Knife Reviews

Kershaw Chill

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic knife that won't break the bank, or your heart, if you lose it. I've had a knife in my pocket since Junior High. I see them as tools and use them daily at work, so my EDC knife is usually one of my five Swiss Army knives. When backpacking, however, I usually take a locking blade. Twenty years ago, that was the standard Buck.  About five years ago, I began adding to my collection, and believe I have found (at least for me) what I consider to be the perfect knife. I've been drooling over… Full review

Spyderco Kiwi 4

rated 4 of 5 stars A very lightweight, high-quality folding knife with a blade that's excellent for cutting things and good for food prep. I like knives, and I'm always on the lookout for good backpacking knives. A backpacking knife needs to be light, strong, well constructed and functional. A folding knife for backpacking should have a sturdy pocket clip so that it can be securely carried. The Spyderco Kiwi 4 meets all these criteria. Version 4 of the Spyderco Kiwi is a significant upgrade to the Kiwi line of knives. Full review

Kershaw Half Ton

rated 2.5 of 5 stars OK knife for EDC or the pack, but there are much better knives out there. I bought this knife on a whim at my local Lowes for $20.   First the pros: It has a fairly stout, drop point, c8CR13MOV stainless steel blade that is easily sharpened. The blade doesn't have much recurve.  The thumb stud allows for quick, easy deployment. The liner lock seems to lock solidly. Conversely, the handle just didn't feel right. The knife felt very heavy in my hand, unlike some of the other knives I own. The wrench… Full review

Opinel No. 9 Folding Knife

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The proven simple and dependable design for over 100+ years. I purchased the #9 model from its indigenous country, France, during a conference meeting I was attending. I have known the knife for some time and wanted to add one into my gear arsenal. The sizes vary from ridiculously small to unnecessarily large. I picked the #9, a little bit larger than the popular #7 or #8. The first thing noticeable is the fact that it is light, almost feather-like. For those of you minimalist guys, I can definitely… Full review

Ozark Trail Pocket Knife

rated 3 of 5 stars I had issues with the screws falling out while in use. Bad if it were a survival situation. I put a lil soft set lock tight on them and now it's all good. Watch main blade screw too. Really is not a bad knife for the money. It will serve you well if you soft set lock tight the screws and don't work the knife too hard, just as you shouldn't any knife.

Eddie Bauer First Ascent Belay Knife

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I like this knife, but the blade rattles (moves back and forth) when open quite a bit which is a large drawback for me. Full review

Gerber Air Ranger

rated 5 of 5 stars Can't go wrong. Perfect knife, use it every day! One-handed opening is flawless. Works in office, home, or in the field. Can't even feel it in your pocket. I have used it hiking, backpacking, fishing, and I carry it every day!! Got it on eBay for like 15 bucks and have had no complaints. For the gear snobs, I carry it over my Griptillian, personal preference of course.  Full review

Benchmade Lone Wolf Mini-Landslide

rated 5 of 5 stars One of the best folders you can get for $50. I bought this as a replacement for my ancient Swiss Army Knife, lost when moving a few years back. I wanted a decent-quality pocket knife for backpacking, mainly for emergency use, but also for cutting line if needed and for food preparation. I thought fifty bucks was a lot to spend for a pocket knife (since then I've learned you can easily pay upwards of $500-2000). But I went with this one because of good reviews of the Lone Wolf line of knives.  Lone… Full review

Gerber Outrigger, Serrated

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This knife is fantastic when you're in a pinch! The assisted opening makes it easy to take out and open with one hand, while the belt clip keeps it close by. The serrated edge really shines when it comes to quickly cutting things like rope. The assisted opening makes getting the blade out effortless! It's almost a little scary how quickly you can open this. The blade came quite sharp and so far it's stayed that way! In fact it's so sharp I managed to cut into my hand fairly deeply and was able to… Full review
