1602G Folding Pocket Knife

Folding Pocket Knife


Ease of use is critical for your folding knife or pocket knife. These tools consistent of several basic components:

  • The knife handle is used to grip and maneuver with the knife. Many of knives are outfitted with a rubber or molded plastic handle. These materials should provide adequate grip and comfort. Manufacturers produce knives to be ergonomic, so they fit more comfortably into your hand.
  • The knife bolster is the portion of the knife blade that extends downward into the handle. This is used to balance the knife.
  • The knife blade is the most basic part of the knife. These are made from a variety of materials. A point at the end of the blade is used to pierce objects. For additional cutting power, try a recurve knife blade.

Pocket knives always feature a mechanism that opens and locks it when not in use. A “slip joint” is the most common device. Automatic knives feature a button lock that can be pushed to engage the blade.

Many folding knives at DICK’S Sporting Goods are constructed with a stainless steel blade. Stainless steel blades are simple to sharpen and retain their edge even after consistent use. This material is highly resistant to corrosion, but tends to rust when exposed to moisture.

Knife handles come in a variety of materials, including plastics, rubber and aluminum. Rubber handles cushion the hand during use and promote grip and traction on the handle—great for steadying your hand. Hard-molded plastic handles are easy to maintain and ultra-durable. Look for an aluminum handle with ergonomic ridges, which promote better grip.
