Why do we like pocket knives so much? It’s hard to say, and maybe it depends on individual knives. Some we like because they’re made pretty — with a handle inlaid with bone or turquoise or a blade featuring a gorgeously-grainy wash. Others we prize purely for their functionality; there’s nothing wrong with a $20 folder that may not last a lifetime as long as it does its job well (although we’d always recommend spending a little more for lasting quality).
Maybe the reasons why we like pocket knives don’t matter at all — that is, in part, the joy of collecting. One thing we always like though is discounts on knives, and at the moment Cabela’s is hosting a sale on a selection of blades for every purpose. Looking for a pretty folder for your pocket? It’s there. Need a fixed-blade workhorse? You’ll find it. Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite knives from the offering, but it’s worth scrolling through the full sale if you’re in need of something specific.
