The Cold Steel Rajah II is by far the largest folding knife I own. Swinging in with a 6 inch (15.24 cm) recurve blade, it's a pretty fearsome sight. I have been hounded to review some of the big folders from Cold Steel for some time, and whilst many of my preconceptions … [Read more...]
Folding Knives (Folders)
We do many knife reviews on this blog, many of which are of folding knives (usually of the everyday carry/EDC pocket knife variety). The following are all of the folding knife reviews that we've published on this blog so far.
And if there's ever a knife you want a review of that isn't already up here, let us know by commenting on a post or contacting us directly.
The Kershaw Shuffle is an interesting little tyke recently introduced to the Kershaw lineup. I am not generally a huge fan of folders that attempt to segue into the multitool market, but I found the (albeit flawed) implementation on the Shuffle compelling enough to review. … [Read more...]
When the Spyderco Bug was announced I admittedly scoffed at the idea of a sub 3 inch (total length!) folder. What on earth could anyone do with a 1.27 inch blade? And yet, this tiny knife kept popping up in other people's pocket dumps and EDC showcases... So here I am - … [Read more...]
The many variants of the CRKT M16 have been a reference model for CRKT for quite some time now. I usually tend to avoid uber-tactical options when it comes to folders, with the exception of the CRKT Hissatsu (which I love), but I felt it was almost obligatory to pick up what … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Blur is probably the most popular knife that I own. It seems everyone I've spoken to either currently owns one, or has at least handled the Blur in the past, and when you see how much Kershaw brings to the table taking into account this knife's affordable entry … [Read more...]
The Ontario RAT-1 is probably the most famous "budget" folder that consistently gets recommended on the forums. I've always shied away from purchasing it in the past due to my (somewhat extreme) disdain for its aesthetics, but in January this year, I bit the bullet, deciding … [Read more...]
The Kershaw Leek has always been a mainstay of recommended everyday carry knives. It's available at an extremely affordable price point (remember, it's actually USA-made), has excellent fit and finish, as well as above average cutting performance. All this places the Kershaw … [Read more...]
As far as I know, the Kershaw Chill is one of the most inexpensive flippers currently produced by Kershaw. I threw it into my Amazon shopping cart as an "add-on" item to make it to the free shipping limit, and to be straight with you, I didn't really expect much from it … [Read more...]
The Cold Steel Kudu is a modern interpretation of the Okapi knife designed manufactured in Germany for the colonial market. The original was produced in 1902, and the target demographic needed an inexpensive everyday pocket knife for all the tasks one might encounter in the … [Read more...]
The Spyderco Southard is Spyderco's first flipper knife, and first collaboration with the custom knife maker Brad Southard. With the amount of attention this wicked fast slicer has generated, I admit I am a bit late to the bandwagon, but as they say, better late than … [Read more...]
