Uses for a Pocket Knife

documenting the many uses for the common pocket knife

Best Selling Pocket Knife on Amazon

The other day while contemplating my next post for this website I wondered what would be the top selling pocket knife, or folding knife on Amazon.com.  I wondered if it would be a simple folding knife like I carry, a Leatherman-like multi-tool, or possibly a Swiss Army knife.

As it turns out the top selling pocket knife is the Smith & Wesson CK5TBS Bullseye Extreme Ops 4.1″ 40% Serrated Black Tanto Blade on sale for $10.85. Now I didn’t come up with that title, and it includes a lot of information but basically this knife is a simple, black, folding model with a 3.2 inch serrated blade and an aluminum handle. Dual thumb studs is a nice touch for us lefties, but I have no idea what a lanyard hole is, nor do I know what a tanto blade is exactly. Coming in at 3.2 ounces this knife by Smith & Wesson is highly rated with an average Amazon.com rating of 4/5 stars. Lastly the knife comes with a limited lifetime warranty.


On a side note, 4 of the remaining top 5 best selling pocket knives are Victorinox “swiss army” style knives or combo kits. I’ll cover those in the future as well as others in the top 10.
