Use of knives


There is a legend about a universal knife.

It says that the knife is forged from a valve or a turbine blade. It doesn’t have to be sharpened because it self-sharpens while cutting. But most important, you can shave with this knife, take out a splinter with it, cut out a stick, and prepare fish or salad for lunch. The knife also chops well thick branches and can open at least 20 tins of canned food without losing sharpness. If needed, you can use it to pry open a manhole cover or throw it at a target. You can use this knife to survive in the jungles of the Amazon, in the Sahara desert or in any city. It is great for self-defence and matches a business suit...

That’s what the legend knife is.

Unfortunately, legends usually are far from reality. And the reality is that such a universal knife simply cannot exist, because tasks set to it are too different. One sort of work requires a short blade, another requires a long one, certain work is done with a thin blade and other with sturdy. And when you try to combine together several different functions in one, as a result usually you get a tool that performs equally poor for all of them. This is why in a real life there is a multitude of types of knives to suit different purposes. Most of them originated a long time ago and have survived to the present day, whereas others disappeared because work they were designed for became no longer required, on the other hand new types have appeared instead. Changes in types are determined by way of life and traditions of people, technological breakthroughs and even fashion.

Here we are going to present and briefly describe most popular types of knives according to their purpose of use.

The list will be constantly renewed.
