Cool pocket knives to carry in 2022

A pocket knife is a small folding knife with a blade that can be opened with one hand. The blades are typically 2 to 4 inches long, and the handle may taper for better balance or incorporate finger grips for easier control. This type of knife is found in everyday use on farms, in backpacks and toolboxes and as status symbols by many different people. 

They have been used in military conflicts around the world since at least World War I. Their history spans more than 4,000 years, and they are found on every continent except Antarctica. Some of the earliest known examples of knives are made from stone or bone. 

What are Pocket Knives Comprised of?

While most have blades made of steel, the oldest known iron knives were unearthed in a Chinese tomb dating to about 200 B.C. The typical pocket knife has two handles, usually of wood or plastic, with a blade extending from the end opposite the handle. 

Most open by using a flicked wrist motion that is similar to that used for opening a pair of scissors. Pocket knives can be opened quickly and quietly with one hand, though some models hold an edge longer than others if the user is skilled enough to maintain their sharpness.

Pocket Knives Date Back Thousands of Years

While pocket knives have many uses, they are commonly used as hunting and/or utility knives. As old as the first flint knife or animal bone, the history of the pocket knife is just as old as human history. Knives have been part of our lives since the time we were able to carry around things. 
The modern cool pocket knives can be anything from a simple nail-nick to an assisted-opening tool; there is something for every taste and every budget. In the world of pocket knives, the folding knife stands out as the most versatile tool. 
For more than two centuries, the Robert Tatler company of Sheffield, England invented these amazing pocket knives, whose popularity spread rapidly like wildfire. The knives Tatler made, unlike most of the knives of the period, were meant for gentleman's gentleman's use, rather than butchery or hunting. 
Almost everyone carried a knife along with a belt-attached sheath. Aside from opening letters and slicing bread at the dinner table, these knives were also useful for opening oysters and opening oyster shells.

The Best Pocket Knives to Carry!

1. Rainbow Knife

The world's most famous rainbow knife is the one from Leonidas in the Legend of Zelda video game series. In this game, it's a treasure hidden deep in a cave. The player needs to collect ten gold tokens to activate it and then use it by waving and pushing at the same time. 

The blade turns into six different colors that change together with time: red, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. This is an example of how color can be created using light waves or particles.

These cool knives are one of the most important subjects in the field of nanophotonic. Narrowing the visible spectra with a prism, or a knife blade, is nothing new and it's been used for a long time. 

The rainbow knife is made from a single piece of silicon and it can be created with a special lithography technique known as e-beam lithography. The laser beam is used to fry the silicon and the light reflected off the silicon forms the knife blade. 

The very tiny beams that are needed in this technique make e-beam lithography one of the most demanding technological methods available today. In fact this technique can use wavelengths as short as 200 nm, which makes fabrication possible on structures as small as a single molecule atom.

2. Stiletto Knife

A stiletto knife is a tool with a long, thin blade that is typically used for stabbing, stabbing hard surfaces, or slashing. It was originally developed in Italy and was an integral part of 19th century women's fashion and has remained popular today.

It has a narrow, sharp point which is capable of puncturing and then tearing the skin when being deployed as an offensive tool. It may have a round "gothic" handle or it may also have a single blade with holes in it as opposed to one continuous blade that comes to points at both ends. Sometimes the entire handle can be made into one solid piece of metal forming the blade.

It is a narrow blade knife with a blade length of four inches or less. These cool pocket knives may have a single-edge or double-edge blade, but both edges of the blade face the same direction. Stiletto knives may also have one narrow main cutting edge and one thin sharp point.

In slang usage, "stiletto knife" could be applied to any long, thin bladed stabbing weapon, but traditionally it refers only to those with short blades such as the Italian sicilian stilettos. The term may also be used for any dagger or thrusting knife (except for swords) with a thin blade that is sharp on its edge in addition to having a sharp tip.

3. Spring Assisted Knives

A spring-assisted knife is a knife that has a spring in the handle to assist with opening. The blades can be double-edged or single-edged.

These knives have dual thumb studs for easy open, foldable blade, pocket clip for easy carry and access to blade, and an assisted opening mechanism made from steel springs so one handed operation is possible. These knives are available in either lock back or liner lock styles.

Spring Assisted knives are very popular because of how effortless they make it to use while still maintaining safety aspects. It is widely accepted that knives are dangerous and should be used with caution.

However, spring-assisted knives make it easier to open and use while still maintaining safety. There are traditional locking mechanisms or assisted opening mechanics to ensure the blade stays locked when not in use. Some knives have safeties that make the knife inoperable until you engage it each time you use the knife. The simplicity of the mechanism also makes it a reliable option.
