MOST COMMON BLADE PROFILES AND HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST

Lot of choices out there for Blade types.

Just remember: A Knife is a TOOL above all else, not a play pretty or something to show off to your friends.

Choose the TOOL that is right for the Job.

My 2 cents: I have never had any luck with tanto blades for a serious work knife, be it a folder or fixed blade.

The tip is brittle and not made for serious work. Bottom Line: The design of a Tanto is made for stabbing not a work knife, so keep that in mind.

If I could have one blade type for an all around knife I would choose the Drop Point. Yeah it’s an old design but there is a reason for that: It works.

Keep it Simple.
