The 10 Best UK Legal Carry Metal Handle 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.

Spyderco UK Penknife Titanium Handle C94TI Spyderco UKPK Knife 1 - Spyderco UK Penknife Titanium Handle- One of the strongest knives on the market, and also one of the heaviest. The solid titanium handle is bomb proof and provides secure anchorage for the pocket clip. The pivot arrangement is totally solid as the pin passes through the titanium handle, with no blade play after continual long term usage.
Spyderco Kiwi Knife Spyderco C75P3 Slip Joint Slipit Penknife 2 - Spyderco Kiwi Knife Stainless Handle - With a very strong back spring, the thumb hole on the Kiwi knife is not a practical method of opening the knife. The wharncliffe blade shape is more suitable for cutting and slicing rather than piercing tasks. Handle ergonomics are excellent with finger gooves providing a secure forward grip.
