Ask any pocketknife enthusiast what his favorite blade is and you’ll likely get a different answer every time. Knives come in hundreds of different configurations and styles, making the decision on which blade is “your blade” all the more complex. Certain knives are clearly better suited objectively for specific applications, but for an everyday pocketknife, the criteria can often be subjective to ones taste. Sarge offers many different knife variations, from single fixed blade to foldable styles.
A single-blade folding pocketknife comes with a locking mechanism for strength and durability. Single blade pocketknives are a clear favorite for everyday blades. They are simple in nature but strong enough to be well suited for a variety of tasks. Single blade knives often come as a straight edge, or a combo serrated edge. The Sarge SK813 Panther is a combo edge knife standing 3.5" with a locking mechanism. This is a perfect all around utility style pocketknife.
A single straight edge knife is best suited for “push cutting” and gives the user more control and accuracy to perform precision cuts. A serrated edge, like the SK-805, gives the user a much better level of “sawing” power, but with the benefit comes a lose of some precision and clean cutting ability.
Another consideration is blade length. Longer is not always better, as is often thought. Most short blades are able to travel anywhere as most laws that prevent knives from being carried certain places pertain only to blades longer than 2.75 inches. Short pocketknives are often foldable blades with a locking mechanism. One disadvantage to picking up a larger knife is that they are often fixed blade. This makes them more difficult to transport legally, safely, and discreetly. A perfect example of a very transportable small single-blade foldable pocketknife is the SK-800.
