Best Metal Handle Pocket Knives

The 10 Best UK Legal Carry Metal Handle Pocket Knives

There are pros and cons for carrying a metal handle knife and it is essentially a personal choice. Aluminium or steel is tougher compared to natural materials such as bone, wood or animal horn. These natural materials are all susceptible to cracking if the knife suffers a moderately severe impact. Even so-called impact resistant synthetic materials have been known to crack when subjected to mechanical force. A key factor is the design of the knife, whether steel handle liners are present and the overall strength of the pivot pin arrangement. One of the disadvantages is the added weight of a solid metal handle, although use of titanium and aluminium helps to reduce overall weight.
