EUGENE, Ore., Sept. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — RAVE Reviews, the innovative site that publishes entertaining rankings based on advanced data-driven analysis, has published a ranking of the “Best Pocket Knives,” available at: https://www.ravereviews.org/gear/the-best-pocket-knives/
Within the last decade, the knife market has become more diverse than ever. The wide variety of styles and designs can make it difficult for consumers to determine which products have been created with high-quality craftsmanship and which ones aren’t worth the money. That’s why the RAVE team took on the task of finding 20 of the most outstanding pocket knives available for purchase.
Knife expert Halden Kirkwood examined numerous detailed criteria in order to compile this list. The type of steel in the blade, the efficiency of the pivot mechanism, and the versatility of the overall design were all important factors in separating out the good from the best.
“We all know what a pocket knife looks like, but there’s so much more to the construction and design of these tools than you might see at first,” said Eleri Miller, Marketing Coordinator for RAVE Reviews. “Factors like handle ergonomics, blade shape, and deployment mechanisms all make an impact on how efficient and durable a particular knife is going to be. Our ranking takes all of that into account.”
In determining which pocket knives to feature, the RAVE research team relied on data from a variety of sources, including reviews from across the internet as well as personal expertise and hands-on testing. The scoring methodology for this ranking included five main categories: blade, handle, lockup/deployment, utility, and price point.
