Folding Pocket Knife

I love my Kershaw Clash Pocket Knife for a bunch of reasons. The first is that it is well made, and perfect for just about any everyday task. The second is that at this price. I can actually use my Knife and not have to baby it for fear of breaking it. Who wants to use a knife that costs a couple hundred bucks to gut an animal or try to open a can of soup while out hunting?

The funny thing is that while I use my Pocket Knife hard I’ve yet to do more than scratch it up or ding the blade. When I do ding the blade I just get my file out and its good to go after a few minutes. I feel like if I had a more expensive blade I’d be way more careful with it and not get as much out of the Knife.

Like so many things in life – make sure this Pocket Knife is legal to carry, and how its legal to carry in your location. I live on the border of three states. In one of them I can carry it concealed because of its length. In the other two I can wear it but it has to be clearly visible at all times so it doesn’t become concealed. Bottom line, make sure you follow your local laws.

Folding Pocket Knife Scoring

This Pocket Knife can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores a 193/1000. This Knife is more of a utility tool for me. When it comes to survival, that is important. It is just that when it comes to self defense it loses points for the fact you have to open it, and the fact it has very short reach.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.
