The world of pocket knives is in a glorious place. Its such a wonderful time as these knife makers are at each other throats and being pushed to produce the next best thing. Maybe it’s not so crazy but we are reaping all the benefits that come from it.
These knives have become a huge part of the EDC. You see, the EDC is becoming a way of life and while it’s not a cure-all, its a step in the right direction for preparedness culture. What can you add to your toolkit to level up your EDC?
Let’s look at one of the top knives in the game today, that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I am talking about the Kershaw Link.
Kershaw makes a lot of knives that aren’t made in this nation. These knives are not bad and carrying them is still going to get the job done. However, the American made link is a thing of beauty and it’s built to last.
There are things that you are going to notice about this knife right off the bat and one is the weight and balance on this pocket knife.
Beautiful Handle and Design
There is something about the smoothed steel handle that makes the Link such a powerful EDC knife. Even a high-quality synthetic handle can have great comfort and handling but that metal handle is just so great. It’s a wonderful thing.. It also is a dime from the aesthetic side of things.
Wide Drop Point Blade
Now, there are many things that you can say about this knife that make it stand out. The wide sloping blade that is coated in black is not only a dream to keep sharp, its also great for utility. You can use this blade for things. It doesn’t just look like something scary and tactical.
