THE BEST Knives
Designed by blade maker Jon Graham for CRKT, the Razel GT features a snub-nosed straight blade with a chiseled tip that’s great for push-cutting and scraping. It has a smooth-opening ball-bearing pivot and supports easy one-handed closing. Its 3″ long blade is made from 8Cr13MoV steel, while its handle is 6061 aluminum.
Axis Blades is a leader in automatic knife design. The Caliber offers a 3.9″ drop-point blade with a half-straight, half-serrated edge that deploys quickly from its aluminum and zinc alloy black handle. It has a built-in hip clip and a glass breaker on its tail. Must be 18+ to purchase. Check your local laws.
The tiny Microblade Pill Knife will soon arrive in a titanium variant. Small enough to carry on your keychain, the Pill Ti is perfect for opening packages, cutting paper, or removing stickers. Each one is CNC-machined from solid titanium and comes with a protective cap, a quick-release carabiner, and a cap holder.
From the makers of the Bosun’s Edge knife comes another beautiful, nautically-inspired tool. The Kraken Blade packages a sharp and replaceable utility blade into an elegant solid brass handle. It deploys with a quick snap action, then holds closed with a magnetic catch. An optional bow shackle can be used for attaching the knife.
This handy gadget packs in 13 tools in one. All of its blades fold out of the same end, and it’s made entirely from stainless steel.

Simplicity is the name of the game with this compact knife from CRKT and T.J. Schwarz Design. It features a fixed 1.74″ 5Cr15MoV steel blade, set into a textured ABS thermoplastic handle. Rather than needing a separate sheath, its body has a built-in pocket clip, and a snap-on cap protects its blade when not in use.
