Pocket Knife

The CRKT Drifter

The CRKT Drifter shares the two essential attributes of the greater part of the knives we tried: The cutting edge is around 3 inches in length, and you can open and close it with one hand. On paper, the Drifter offers nothing exceptional, however it dominates at all of the little components that make for an effective knife.

The most great of these is the perfection of the sharp edge’s turning activity, which is among the most pleasant we tried and on a standard with that of knives costing four fold the amount. The Drifter’s handle is molded to fit both of all shapes and sizes hands, and it has a light finishing that improves the grasp. This model has phenomenal fit and finish, and it doesn’t have a modest plastic feel like a considerable lot of the knives in its value range—for the most part costing under $30, it’s a deal.

Sanrenmu 710

In case you’re new to knives and need to make the littlest speculation conceivable to check whether you like conveying one, we like the Sanrenmu 710 (otherwise known as 7010). It’s comparable from multiple points of view to our primary pick—it has generally a similar size and the cutting edge rotate is nearly as smooth.

In any case, the all-metal handle is less agreeable and can get dangerous in sodden or sweat-soaked hands; we saw this difficult when holding the knife and while flipping the sharp edge out. Fortunately the 710 is regularly sold for under $20 and some of the time accessible for under $10. This valuing is noteworthy seeing as the general quality in our tests was superior to that of a significant number of the $20 to $40 knives we attempted.

Benchmade Mini Griptilian 556

In the event that you have a bigger spending plan and need a knife that nails the entirety of the little subtleties, we suggest the Benchmade Mini Griptilian 556. Contrasted and our different picks, it’s just a superior knife—better turn, better cutting edge steel, better ergonomics, and better bolting framework. Due to the lock and the reversible pocket cut, this model is a completely able to use both hands knife.


We accept that the vast majority will be more than happy with the CRKT Drifter, yet in the event that you take great consideration of your knives and need one with premium contacts, the Mini Griptilian is an extraordinary speculation.
