When it comes to choosing the perfect knife, there is a lot to think about. The first thing to consider is the type of knife you want. Are you looking for a pocket knife, folding knife, hunting knife, butterfly knife (Balisong), or switchblade? Whatever you decide, please check your local laws on switchblade possession. The laws are constantly being updated so stay informed on local laws.
Next factor to study is the type of steel used to construct the blade. For example, there’s carbon steel, Damascus steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, and tool steel. Each type of steel has its own strengths and weaknesses and each material is best suited for a particular purpose. The information surrounding blade types is staggering, however, at Tekto Gear, we’ve done the research for you.
Our trusted partners, suppliers, and experienced knife designers have made it simple for new and experienced knife lovers to choose a suitable knife. All of our knives—except the Damascus Collection—are made from 440c steel. 440c steel is a high-end stainless steel that attains the highest hardness of any stainless steel. It also has the highest concentration of carbon within the 400 series. It is so strong that it not only is it used for structural aircraft parts, but it’s also referred to as “Stainless Super Steel”.
