One of the most versatile tools that will help a person survive in extreme conditions is a pocket knife. Initially, these were army knives, which were designed for military pilots who were at war in Vietnam in the 60s.

People learned about the tactics of the American army and the peculiarities of their arms after the film First Blood had been released. John Rambo, a former US soldier, easily managed to cope with the enemy in the jungle, due to his “universal tactical pocket knife”. Multi-tools have become popular since that time.

Nowadays, a pocket multi tool knife is a multifunctional tool with a wide range of applications. Such a knife must have the highest quality so that it can withstand the harshest conditions. The manufacturers have worked for decades to create the perfect tool.

How to choose multi-tools?

The quality of steel is essential in a multi tool knife. Stainless steel with a hardness of 50-54 HRC is very durable and has excellent sharpness.

The handle can be made of wood, plastic, rubber, or steel. Steel is the most durable material. The best handle should be made of steel of medium hardness, it’s about 58-60 HRC. When choosing a multi tool pocket knife, you need to take into account not only the material from which it is made but also how comfortable it lies in the hand.
