Knives are meant to be versatile, and the names used to describe them reflect that. Often, you’ll hear the words combat and tactical used interchangeably, and that’s because while a knife may be used for combat, you’re also going to use it to open boxes. Or cut a rope, or spread butFter on toast, or cut open a bale of hay.
So while we can have a combat pocket knife for sale, it can be used for so much more.
Features of a Combat Folding Knife
A combat folding knife needs to have a solid locking system for when the blade is open. No alternative, as these knives are sharp, and a blade closing at the wrong moment can lead to serious injury.
Most combat and tactical knives will be semi-serrated, to cut through tough materials quicker. The tip should also be usable for combat situations. Tanto styles, drop tips, and hawkbills are very popular, and the one you choose will really depend on you and your preferences.
Good quality steel and a non-slip handle should be a given at this point, but it does bear repeating. For an affordable, tough option, we like AUS-8 steel. Read a review, and you’ll see why.
Who Could Use a Folding Combat Knife
Since these knives are so tough, they can be used by anyone looking for a new EDC. However, there are a few people who could use them even more.
Law enforcement, military, EMTs, and firefighters have all been known to use a combat pocket knife for their rugged durability. Combat pocket knives frequently come with useful extras, like seat belt cutters and glass breakers, perfect for dealing with emergencies in urban zones.
Hunters, campers, backpackers, survivalists, and preppers will find these very useful to keep handy. These knives are lighter than fixed blades, while still having all the functionality as well.
