Smith & Wesson Large S.W.A.T. Stainless Steel

This product was recommended by Bertie Cowan from Effortless Outdoors

This everyday carry knife outshines by far the many I have tried before. Its assisted opening mechanism with a blade lock means it’s really easy to use in a one-handed situation but won’t deploy accidentally in your pocket. The grip is perfect when you are using the knife either when your hands are hot and sweaty or the weather is wet. The overall look of the knife is stylish and it is very practical. I would definitely buy this knife again.

Expensive – but quality doesn’t come cheap!

Full-tang steel. Because it does not fold, you don’t have to worry about it collapsing when you use it. Ring end. A lot of people will sneer at this. These people never get on boats. The ring end means you can tie a cord to it and to you. If the knife slips, it does not disappear forever. Holster. The holster is easily adaptable to IWB or OWB carry for someone who pays attention to what they are doing. It also slides easily in to a boot or wraps around an ankle with that holster. The swivel joint means you can position it exactly as you need it.

For anyone who loves outdoor adventure like me, we need tools that are durable and reliable. It is best to spend on stuff that we can use for different activities such as camping, hunting, survival, or just everyday needs. This knife may look small, but it’s a must-have pocket blade for everyday use.

Crescent 3-1/2 Inch Harpoon Blade Composite Handle Pocket Knife

This product was recommended by Paul Gangarossa from Crescent Tools

For many pros in the trades, a pocket knife is part of their everyday carry lineup. They may not know what they’ll need it for that day; they just know it needs to be strong, sharp, sleek and safe. The new pocket knives for everyday carry from Crescent Tools deliver on all that and more. The four Crescent Pocket Knives are available with two different blade options—heavy-duty D2 steel and 5Cr15MoV steel. The premium D2 steel options feature either a drop-point style blade (CPK325A) or harpoon-style blade (CPK350A), both with a gray wash finish. Drop-point blade design provides blade tip strength and overall blade durability for a variety of cutting applications. Harpoon blade design provides overall blade durability and extra leverage for a variety of cutting applications. The anodized aluminum handle design provides a superior strength-to-weight ratio for optimal performance. Likewise, the 5Cr15MoV steel options come with both drop-point (CPK325C) and harpoon style (CPK350C) blade options, but with a comfortable composite handle that optimizes hand and finger contact points to maximize fit and control. All four knives feature a smooth-action heavy-duty ball bearing system, providing quick and easy operation for the life of the tool. Knives are equipped with an easy-action flipper tab for swift blade deployment. The deep-pocket, low-profile carry clip makes these knives comfortable to carry no matter where the job takes you.
