The Ultimate Penknives, Tools & Accessories Buying Guide 2018
For Christmas 2018, we’ve compiled this list of the UK’s best selling knives, tools and accessories as a useful guide for you. These are the products which, if you don’t already have them in your collection, you really should do!
Spyderco UK Penknife
The Spyderco UKPK (UK Penknife) with FRN handle, leaf-shaped blade and a flat grind is arguably the UK’s favourite selling pocket knife. Because UK knife law does not allow for locking knives, the UKPK instead features a notch-joint at the knife’s pivot. This allows for the blade to feel secure in the open position but ultimately not lock it in place. This little knife also boasts a perfectly positioned deep finger choil and thumb ramp with jimping allowing for incredible control.
Pathfinder Bottle & Nesting Cup Set
Whether you are a causal hiker, a hunter, a prepper, an extreme outdoor enthusiast, or serving a tour of duty in the jungles of Peru, you are one mechanical injury away from finding yourself in a real survival situation. Let’s face it, at that point, your two primary concerns are always going to be hydration and core temperature regulation, that is why this kit is a MUST HAVE in your pack.
Lansky World Legal Knife
Balancing form with function, the Lansky World Legal knife was born from one idea: make a great knife that can be carried anywhere in the world. Simple but efficient, it combines modern aesthetics with traditional slip-joint technology.
CRKT Liong Mah #5 Heinnie® Edition
The CRKT Liong Mah Folder has achieved legendary status as a UK friendly to carry knife. Its simple slip joint mechanism and powerful build has seen it become one of the most popular EDC carry knives on the market. Heinnie Haynes® is proud to now offer this world beating folder in a limited edition form. Each one features the Heinnie logo on the reverse of the blade next to “LIONG MAH DESIGN” etched into the steel. This version has a “Heinnie®” red G10 handle.
The Condor Bushlore is one of our top selling outdoor knives. It is a superior camp knife which has been crafted with hard-use in mind. The 1075 Carbon Steel blade is a great steel, and when you couple the steel with the Scandi grind you get one very strong and effective cutting tool. The blade length is pretty much perfect for all your bushcraft and outdoor needs, not too long that it’s a burden, not too short that it can’t perform heavy duty tasks. The fact that it is full tang is also a great asset!
The Fallkniven DC3 (7.4 x 2.4cm) and Fallkniven DC4 (10.0 x 3.1cm) are a combination diamond/ceramic whetstone that will handle all your sharpening needs. The DC3 and DC4 whetstones consist of a fine diamond stone (25 micron) and a very special ceramic stone, made of synthetic sapphire.
Spyderco Paramilitary 2 Black
Why change something if it works? Because Spyderco practice the principle of C.Q.I. – Constant Quality Improvement. If Spyderco can refine and improve the ergonomics or cutting performance of an established model, they do it.
The Spyderco Para-Military2 has several changes over the classic version, and is a remarkably fine tool.
Fallkniven Model F1 Swedish survival knife
With this knife a World standard is set! Important factors such as technical design, ergonomy and economy are brought together within the model F1, and represent the foremost concept available today. The knife meets and surpasses by far established international standards for strength, personal security and value for money.
Being tenacious means one holds fast. One is persistent and cohesive. It means being tough and tireless until achieving your goal: all knife-worthy definitions for a worthy knife. The mid-sized Spyderco Tenacious has a black G-10 laminate handle, milled with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind. Tucked inside are skeletonized steel liners increasing the handle’s rigidity and strength without adding non-functioning weight or bulky thickness.
Glock Field Knife
Glock outdoor equipment was specially developed and tested according to army requirements and is used by military units throughout the world. Material know-how from the pistol development guarantees durability and reliability. This survival knife is equipped with a sturdy, spring steel, HRC55, phosphate-treated blade.
