Lightweight: Deejo Juniper Wood 37G
Military-grade: IXL Wostenholm British Army Knife
Simplicity meets timeless style in this British Army Knife made completely out of stainless steel. The multifunctional device includes a 2.25-inch sheepsfoot-style blade, can opener, flathead bit and a marlin spike (used for tying knots). The quarter-inch-thick metal grip features a stamp of authenticity from Sheffield, one of the Britain’s oldest knife making cities.
All-around: Gerber EAB Pocket Knife
Appropriately dubbed the Exchange-A-Blade Pocket Knife, Gerber’s latest folder uses basic 1.7-inch utility blades that can be replaced as they grow duller—perfect for simple tasks like opening packages. The blade locks securely into the stainless steel handle, at which point its handsomely utilitarian design doubles as a money clip to stash your cash.
Adventurer: Striker Folding Knife
Skateboarding legend Geoff Rowley’s new outdoor gear company, Civilware USA, manufactures this rugged and compact Striker Folding Knife worthy of finding its way into your everyday rotation. It features a comfortable textured G10 handle, secure liner lock and a curved drop point blade that’s almost a shame to carry closed.
