Perfect pocket knife is a knife that you have on you when you need it.
So with that in mind, I’ve created a list of the top five knives that I recommend for everyday carry. Now, I’ve made a lot of different list videos. So be sure you check those videos out, including knives that are great for people who are knife collectors, or knives who are people who have more restrictive budgets. But in this video, I’m just going to be talking about the knives that I think would be great for if you’re purchasing a knife or someone who doesn’t own any knives, or this is one of their first time, or maybe you yourself are interested in just finding the knife that is best suited for you. Now I’m also going to be including links for all of the different knives that I include in this post in the content below. So be sure to check those links out. So without further ado, let’s go ahead and dive right in!
So the first time I’m going to be talking about is the rat model one. And the rat model one is smaller than its older brother, and bigger brother, which is the rat model to somewhere between medium and large sized clubs. And so the right model one Honestly, it just doesn’t do it. For me, it’s just too big in pocket. But for those of you who are looking for an extra for a larger knife, especially a budget friendly one, because this one comes in around $25 to $35 then I would recommend these knives right here but for me the right model to does everything I needed to do. Its budget friendly, easy to use, it doesn’t feel cheap, and it’s just it’s just a great knife, easy to keep sharp, easy, keep clean.
Now there’s another night that kind of went toe to toe in an attempt to rival with this came out from SC knives and this is known as the Zen Kudo. But the reason why I don’t carry this knife is because of the frame lock, that even though it is a stronger lockup than a liner lock knife, like the tube. I really don’t like the late lockup, especially when it comes to frame lock, because they’re going to basically start hurting your thumb over time. So even though this is a great night, I still enjoy my rat model to a little bit more moving on to the next night. This one is also budget friendly, coming out around $35. This is the from steel mill knives, it’s known as the cut jack Mini. So this is a knife that I’ve had for maybe about half a year at this point. But I love it. And the reason why I like it is how ergonomic it is. And with this jumping right here, the blade shape, I mean you can really get excellent control over your cutting tasks. And it’s lightweight, and it’s nice and grippy. It’s It’s It’s perfect flipper is is fun to use. It’s easy to use, and it looks really cool. It’s got that cool factor. And if you want a larger version of it, then you have the full size cut jack, they come in different colors. And they come with different blades deals if you want to upgrade it, but at around $35 you’re not missing much if you just want to buy, like I said a good beater knife that also kind of looks cool. Now By comparison, another flipper nice that it’s a manual flipper, that also looks cool. From CR Katie, this is known as the Crossbones, I got this one somewhat recently, but I really feel like I have no control over over the blade because of the length and the grind of it. Whenever I use this to cope and boxes, or especially if I use this you can get something out of a plastic, you know, one of those plastic shells and casings, this knife, it kind of pierces a little bit too while and I lose control over it. So for those reasons, I recommend they cut jack keeping all that kind of stuff in mind. Moving on to my first per shot and I said I recommend on this list and this is from Well, I already said it. It’s from curse shock. Allow me to introduce myself.
This is known as the Kershaw leak. Ironically, this knife needs no introduction because a lot of people see this at stores and they see this in their, you know, outdoor stores or Walmart or whatever. But this knife is great. It is spring assist and it has a safety in case you don’t want it. You don’t want to feel like it’s going to open up in your pocket. Same by Canyon. It’s small. I mean, it’s pretty much everything that has already been said about this night has been said excellent knife. But if you feel that that’s going to be too small and you’re going to put one of your everyday carry knives up against heavier cutting tasks, then maybe you’ll want a budget friendly, he rest knife and this is one of the best splicers that is in this whole video, honestly, and this night is only around 30 ish dollars. And it’s from Kershaw. It’s spring assists just like the Kershaw league. Yeah, it doesn’t feel like it is budget friendly either, even though it has steel that is a little bit less of a high higher quality than some of the other steals that are out there. But if you do want something similar to the league, maybe one that isn’t made in China, then maybe go with the Kershaw dividend. This one came out, I think, a few years ago, and it has the American flag on it. So for those of you who are extra patriotic, the Kershaw dividend might be for you. But for many people, the Kershaw league is one that just, it just simply stands alone.
Next I’ll be talking about is from bench made, this one is known as the bench made bug out. And although it has s 30 v premium steel, this knife is only just over $100 or as you few years ago, and I was with SRT v steel would have cost you at least a few hundred or so. So I thought that was really cool, and a lot of other people have to and this knife has really made waves in the knife community. A great night to prepare the bench made bug out with would be of course, the bench made grip Tillion, which is one of my most carry knives. It is my work knife that I’m carrying every day. I really like having a knife that has partial durations for work. But I’d love to hear your thoughts down below
Do you like a plane edge knife or or a partially serrated blade or fully saturated blade for that matter, for your work, and I let me know down below. But whereas this night is excellent, I mean, for all the perfect for all the reasons why I carried every day, the bench made a bug out is extremely lightweight, and you basically forget that you even have it other people might not even know that you have it because it has a deep carry pocket clip. Now, other bench made in the past that I’ve recommended include the bench made Osborn and 914.
However, this night, the cheapest variant of it, even though it has the same blade steel comes in at over $170. And I think this one right here that I have in my hand comes in like $240 or so because it has the carbon fiber handles. So you know, it’s much better of a deal to go with the bench made bug out in my opinion, I think that’s why it’s making the waves that it is and the knife community.
The next sector they’ll be talking about on my list is the paramilitary 2 from spider Co. However, this is not the knife that I’m going to be including as my most recommended knife, this will not finish out the list. I just want to use this to compare what my final recommendation will be. So you can see the paramilitary to is made for as the name implies kind of a tactical, you know, military type of role. And compare that against Spartacus flagship, which is fine, delicate, you can see the difference between something made for the military or law enforcement versus something that is more civilian centered. And even though the delicate is is probably my most carried night. That is not the final night that I’ll be talking about. Because next night I’ll be going over will be the one and only managed to France product. This is my final recommendation.
Now. Some of you might ask, Well, why would you choose the Manics to over the other two as basically because it takes the other two as well as other great things we’ll talk about and combines it into one knife option with a kind of a go one night that’s all kind of solution. And this night, it’s lightweight, it’s not very expensive. It comes in around $80 for the for the man next to you it’s very ergonomic. It’s lightweight, like I said in the grip on this, you basically you’re not going to drop this night. And honestly I don’t know of any other knife that offers much control over cutting then then then the spider co Mannix to really like this knife and I recommend it to pretty much anyone who is looking for a knife that costs around $80 so for that reason, I have it on this list, but I’d love to hear your thoughts and come section down below. What knives do you recommend for others for purchasing of their first night and hopefully this night video made you guys realize all of the great different options that are out there.
Let me know your thoughts that come second down below. Y’all stay safe out there and remember it pays to prepare.
