Which Knife is the Right One for You?

If you’re looking for a self defense knife, there are tons of options out there for you. Fixed blade, folding, Swiss army knives…the options can be overwhelming, especially for a beginner.

So how do you choose?

In the end, it comes down to your personal preference, need, and skill with the knife. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Is the knife legal? (Click here for our list of knife laws by state)
  • Is the knife the right size for your hand?
  • Are you able to draw the knife quickly, easily and safely?
  • Will you mostly be using the knife at home, or carrying it out and about?
  • Can you hold it in a variety of grips?
  • How well do you know the knife? How skilled are you with it?
