Pocket Knife History
Pocket knives are generally designed to fold in such a way as to cover the blade, allowing the knife to sit in a pocket or on a belt without a sheath or causing harm to fabric or skin. The earliest known examples of pocket knives date to the Iron Age. While some bone handles survive, most examples had wooden handles which have since rotted away – but archeologists can tell when an iron blade was designed to hinge in some way. The design of the blades left behind show how they were once attached to the folding handles.
Pocket knives were not meant for defense so much as for handling small tasks in daily life, cutting twine, paper or eating. Today pocket knives can have more than one blade in addition to other gadgets like corkscrews, screwdrivers, nail files and much more. These are generally referred to as multi-tool pocket knives, something Victorinox and Wegner are particularly known for. Modern pocket knives today have a slight nostalgia to them, perhaps reminding users of when kids roamed more freely and need a trusty pocket knife (maybe a Boy Scout pocket knife) to go fishing, build forts and get chores done.
Of course pocket knives serve a wide range of purposes today and can be made from a variety of materials such as steel, carbon, ceramic and more. From decorative to utilitarian, pocket knives are still the perfect tool for keeping in a pocket, glove compartment, purse or kit (just be careful when you fly – you don't want it confiscated!). You never know when pocket knives will come in handy, whether it's on camping, hunting or road trips or just parties where no one brought a bottle opener or corkscrew!
