According to Outdoor Gear Lab, some of the best pocket knives on the market include the Benchmade Mini-Barrage 585, Victorinox Classic SD Swiss Army Knife, Kershaw Leek and Benchmade Griptilian 551 models. All of these knives are considered versatile and are designed for everyday use.
The editors at Outdoor Gear Labs chose the Benchmade Mini-Barrage 585 as their favorite, because it is compact and features a razor-sharp blade. The Victorinox Classic SD Swiss Army Knife was a close second that was praised for its grooming tools and a fun, classic, toy-like design that belies its rugged durability. For those looking for a bargain, the Kershaw Leek offers excellent craftsmanship at a fraction of what other manufacturers charge for similar knives.
