Pocket knives are one of the most trusted, simplest, and oldest gadgets in the world. You might have seen someone you know carry a pocket knife around all the time, and wondered why. The easy answer is that it makes life so much easier. There are actually unlimited reasons why people have a pocket knife with them. Their uses are never exhausting, and should also get one right away too. Some might find the traditional look archaic sitting next to your smartphone. But, you can now customize your pocket knife according to your taste.  From saving time in your everyday tasks to saving your life, here are some of the most common reasons why you should have a pocket knife with you.

Cutting things

We all know this one. Knives are supposed to cut things, right? You might think that you don’t need a knife all the time, but it is actually helpful in many daily tasks like opening packages, letters, or zip cords. If you are going out camping then, it is an essential survival tool that can help you in activities like making food, setting up a tent, or cutting up wood kindlings for the campfire.

One tool for everything

Pocket knives can easily replace so many tools. You can use it as a screwdriver, remove gum from the carpet, loosen knots, strip electric wires, pry out batteries when you have to replace them, and whatnot. The possibilities are endless.

Opening canned items

Pocket knives can be a great substitute for bottle and can openers. When you don’t have an opener to open a bottle or a can, you can easily use your pocket knife instead. If you are in the mood for it, this amazing tool can also be used to shotgun a beer. 

Starting a fire

Being a survival tool, pocket knives are the best thing to have if you want to get a fire started with minimal equipment. The steel surface of the knife will create sparks when you rub it against a Ferro rod. This makes it a reliable fire-starting tool. Make sure that you are using the flat spine of the blade as you don’t want to cause any damage or dullness to the sharp edge.

Whittle something

Whittling may feel like a lost art, but there are many people who enjoy doing it. It is an enjoyable activity and a fun way to pass time.  Whether you have a hobby of whittling or you want to carve out something, the best tool to have is a pocket knife. If you are not into whittling, you can also use it for similar tasks like sharpening a pencil or breaking down some kindling.

(Possibly) Save someone’s life

Things can get unpredictable at any time and it is good to have a versatile tool that can help you out in most situations. During outdoor activities like camping or hiking, there are chances of getting hurt or getting into other tough situations. Pocket knives can be useful in various ways including helping in first aid. You can use it to cut bandages or remove splinters and thorns. It can also be used to fence off animals or defend yourself in case of any unexpected attack.
