Pocket Every Day Carry

Practical and versatile, the pocket knife is an object that can be used for anything. At the table, in the kitchen, during hiking, camping, and even for self-defense, this utensil can be used at any time. But what is it?

What is a pocket knife?

The pocket knife or folding knife is an object whose blade folds into the handle. This makes it very easy to carry, especially when you're traveling. Its ergonomic size allows the knife to be stored in a trouser, coat, or backpack pocket. For safety reasons, the knife can be stored in a sheath.

A pocket knife is a tool you can carry with you every day. It can be used in many situations. It can be a survival knife in the wilderness, a knife to peel fruit, or a tool to cut electrical wires.

How do you use a pocket knife?

The pocket knife can be used at any time. To use it, remove the blade from the handle and keep it straight. The knife is held by the handle. After use, it is important to clean the knife to maintain its sharpness. Do not dampen or clean it with water, as this can cause rust. On the other hand, simply wipe the blade with a soft cloth to clean it. A pocket knife should be sharpened from time to time. If it is a steel blade, it should be sharpened on a synthetic stone. If it is a carbon blade, it should be sharpened on natural stone. Besides, the pins of the pocket knife must also be cleaned to get rid of any dirt that may be embedded in them. Use a toothpick to reach the most difficult to reach parts.

How do I choose my pocket knife?

The choice of a pocket knife must meet the requirements of versatility, quality of cut, size, and aesthetics. Once you have determined what your pocket knife will be used for, here are some criteria to observe:

Number of blades

The pocket knife can be single or multi-blade. The single blade model is practical for camping, hiking, or bushcraft. The multi-blade model is ideal if you do several activities and large tasks (agriculture, electricity, etc.)

Versatility and multifunction

There are also multifunctional pocket knives, the perfect example of which is the Swiss Army knife. These are several tools connected to a single handle: decapping, screwdriver, corkscrew, chisel, nail file, etc. It is practical for all activities.

The material of the blade

The blade of a pocket knife is made of steel. But there are three variations. Stainless steel resists corrosion well but does not offer a perfect cut. Carbon steel offers the best sharpness but is sensitive to water. Finally, Damascus steel is strong and resistant to demanding tasks, but it is also sensitive to water.
