How to choose a reliable and versatile tourist knife?

How to choose a good tourist knife, which you can cut and cut branches, and open canned food, and clean the fish? On the main nuances of this choice, read on.

Isn't it a cold weapon?

First of all, you need to think about whether the tourist knife you are interested in is not considered a cold weapon. According to the established criteria, the length of the blade, exceeding 90 mm, is a sign of cold weapons - more information about other signs can be found in the Law “On Weapons” of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and in the Law “On Civil and Arms” of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

Blade measurements

You can also ask the seller for a certificate confirming that the tourist knives in this store are not cold weapons and they do not require special permission.

Which knife to choose by type

If you are going to buy a tourist knife, you may encounter the following choice: is it better to take a fixed blade or a folding one? Of course, any tourist with experience will tell youthat the ideal option is to have two types of knives with you at once, because they have each other advantages. For example, work that requires a large power load will be more appropriate for clumsy knives with a fixed blade. But if you have the opportunity to buy only one, then we advise you to choose strong and reliable folding knives, for example, ganzo knives, because the folding knife is more multitask, besides it is much more convenient to carry it with you.

You can also pay attention to multitools, which besides a knife blade can provide you with pliers, scissors, a mini-saw, etc.

Blade shape

There are many different blade shapes designed for a specific purpose. But since you need to choose one tourist knife, you should decide what work you plan to do most often. For example, for small, detailed work, we recommend choosing a concave blade, as well as when you need to pull something out or dig it out. The butt-down blade is great for standard cuts. These are the two most common types of blade in camping knives.

Different blades

There are other blades, for example,tourist knife with a curved blade and raising the butt line, which is mainly used for hunting. Choose the one that will be the most versatile for you.

Blade and handle materials

Tourist knife is made of two types of steel - stainless and carbon. In the first case, the knives do not require almost no care of themselves, because with such steel you can not be afraid of humidity and the prospects for the development of corrosion following it. But it is not as strong and reliable as carbon steel, which, however, is much more capricious in the care - such a blade must always be kept dry.

The knife is on clothes

As for the handle, the main thing here is that the tourist knife would lie comfortably in your hand, without trying to slip out. Materials also have different disadvantages. In conditions of high humidity, a wooden handle may crack if it does not have a special impregnation. A metal handle that is resistant to corrosion can change the temperature too quickly - it can heat up in the summer and cool much in the winter. Therefore, the handles are often made of thermoplastic - it lasts a long time, does not conduct current and does not overheat.

Also note that there is a special hole in the handle of the knife through which you can pass a string and, for example, wear a tool on your hand or fasten it on your clothes.
