Choosing a Knife

Knives are a subject I have wanted to write about for some time.  The reason I have hesitated is that the type of knives you select is a very personal thing.  I am a collector when it comes to knives; I have all types and sizes and never have less than two on me, often more.

A few simple guidelines will help you determine what type of knife is right for you.

  • Fixed blade or folder, a fixed blade is normally bigger and stronger.  A folder is lighter and easier to carry concealed in many situations.  In some states, a fixed blade may be illegal to carry concealed.
