Jun 4, 2008
The simple knife can be a very confusing item when you are standing in the store looking over the vast array of types, blades, handles and potential application. Be it for the kitchen or outdoors skinning the deer. Before making any choice for your cutting needs as you start your search consider these following items.

If control while cutting is at the top of your list, which would include those times you need to make deep cuts then a knife with a slow-curve sometimes referred to as a drop point blade will fit the bill. This type of blade will allow you to exert increased pressure or strength while cutting just about anything you would run across in the kitchen but also make cutting fish and game outdoors a much easier task. The drop point blades curved point is a welcomed asset for ease of use and power while cross cutting.

Another control feature with a knife as a whole would include a clip point within the blade. With greater control coming from a clip point blade users can obtain more precision while cutting this results in clean cuts and more professional finished product. The curved belly found on many clip point knives increases and extends the ability to slice with precision. These two benefits alone will provide much more control and ability to slice with accuracy and allow changing directions on the fly with little aggravation or disruption to your slicing rhythm.

It is easy to feel the power exerted on the point when the blade is thick and with what is called a "flat grind". This combination will deliver impressive long lasting sharpness all in an easy to handle versatile cutting instrument. For example, the Tanto blade with its bottom edge and obtuse point provide a knife that possesses impressive sharpness. The blade point is a thick and flat grind that allows for great power. The combination of sharp point and overall strength make this blade an option in finishing cutting jobs quickly.

If you are looking for a knife blade that is geared for slicing, the solution is the sheepsfoot blade. The blade has so many range of uses such as slicing food or cutting through fabrics. Plus it is a great companion to a surefire flashlight. This blade type is preferred by emergency personnel in rescue situations because material can by cut through without causing injury to individuals.
