Cardsharp Folding Knife Goes Full Metal

Choosing paint colors for an open floor plan

As was true with the Cardsharp2, the 2.5-in (65-mm) stainless steel blade is ready to slice and dice with just three folds. The blade technology was originally designed for the medical industry, and while you might not be doing much out-of-pocket surgery in the future, that background makes it sharp enough for all kinds of tasks, including food preparation and cutting through automobile seat belts in an emergency. On the negative side, the new build has more than tripled the price over the Cardsharp2.

The GERBER GDC Hook Knife

Your best bet if you plan to keep a knife on you is avoid a few key things. Knives are most easily split into two categories, fixed blade or folding. Fixed blades are usually larger and sturdier, but this also means more issues when it comes to concealment laws. Folding is therefore the way to go, but be aware that this vague PA law also applies to quick open blades, like the one pictured above. These knives use springs to eject the blade open quickly. Although legal to have and incredibly useful for one-handed opening, keeping a quick-release knife on you could get you in trouble.

Selecting a Folding Knife for Personal Protection

Tactical Folding Knives

For me, it is more methodology driven. If you have trained or follow a school of thought that teaches slashing as a primary defense then a curved or drop point blade may be for you. If you follow a more point driven methodology then a needle-point or tanto type blade design known for penetration is more applicable.

Spyderco Delica4 Folding Knife from Kahr Firearms Group

The shorter blade makes it legal in jurisdictions with strict blade-length limitations without sacrificing leverage, control, or cutting power. The Kahr Delica4 features a stonewashed VG-10 stainless steel blade with a smooth thumb ramp. The sturdy back lock mechanism locks the blade in place when open, and includes a Boye Dent relief cut to prevent unintentional lock release. The Trademark Round Holefound on all Spyderco blades ensures quick, positive, one-handed opening.
