Clip point knives are a very common and popular style of knife with a curved blade that gradually comes to a sharp tip. They are used for a variety of purposes, from hunting to outdoor activities like hiking and camping. In this article, I’ll be discussing my top three clip point blade recommendations and what makes them stand out from the plethora of other choices out there.
The Buck 110 Folding Hunter Knife is a classic clip point knife that has become a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts. This knife features a large, 3.75-inch blade made from 420HC steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust. The handle is made from genuine wood and has a brass rivet for a traditional look. The knife also comes with a leather sheath for easy carrying and storage.
One of the best things about this knife is its ability to hold an edge. The 420HC steel blade is strong and holds a sharp edge for an extended period of time, even when used on tough materials. The knife is also very reliable and can be counted on for heavy-duty tasks.
KA-BAR Fighting Knife
The KA-BAR Fighting Knife is a classic clip point fixed blade that has been trusted by soldiers and outdoor enthusiasts for decades. The long, thick blade is made from high-carbon steel and features an absolutely AMAZING grip wrap and guard for a secure grip under any conditions. The pommel is solid metal and is perfectly suited for rugged outdoor use.
The Voyager Vaquero by Cold Steel is a modern take on the classic clip point knife with a contoured G-10 handle and high-performance steel. It is made of high-quality Japanese AUS-10A steel, which is known for its toughness and excellent edge retention. The Voyager Vaquero also features a back lock opening system, which provides excellent lock up and a secure grip. This knife is designed for both EDC and outdoor use and is an excellent option for those looking for a high-quality clip point knife with a more modern kukri design. If you are unsure of what size to go with, go with the XL (Trust me, it’s exactly as awesome as it looks).
Those are my top 3 choices for knives with a clip-point blade. Never forget, a drop point may LOOK similar, but the main difference of a clip point vs drop point is that a clip point knife has a ‘clipped’ spine. A drop point ‘drops’ into the spine. The Romans used to clip coins, so think of it like that. Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful rest of your week.
