For personal protection and for unexpected situations, nothing beats the pocket knife for portability and ease of use. Pocket knives are small, lightweight and can attach to keychains where they are easy to access. For times when you are away from home, they are handy items to have.

Pocket Knives--Practical and Stylish

The average pocket knife is designed for the man or woman looking for a measure of personal security while on the road or away from home. Most pocket knives have a two to four inch blade which are either curved or straight. They fit comfortably in the hand, and can be carried in one's pocket, purse or glove compartment. This utilitarian knife often comes with two or three blades, which makes it handy for a variety of uses such as opening letters, cutting twine or whittling.

The handles of pocket knives can come in several materials. Wood, aluminum, horn and bone are popular choices which can give the knife a more sleek and polished look. Pocket knives come equipped with pen blades, which are small, all-purpose blades originally designed to trim quill pens, hence the name.

Pocket Knives for Protection

Pocket knives are a good option for anyone looking to have an edge when dangerous situations arise. The pocket knife can be easily stowed away in a purse or pocket so that it is close by yet unobtrusive. It can be an excellent deterrent and is especially popular with women because of its light weight and compact size. The pocket knife is a versatile tool which can be used by anyone.
