    Good display. I like my Opinels and love my Buck 110s. Plastic does not belong on sporting firearms or knives so my Buck 110s are the original steel and brass versions with stag, Ram’s horn, buffalo horn, and exotic wood scales. Having said that I did think your selection was interesting and informative.

    I have a Finnwolf because of you, and it's awesome. I like the Freek but I don't like that benchmade locking system

    Nice video! Any time I see the word “tactical “ I either won’t open, or close, a video. Having said that, you’ve done a nice job reviewing some practical pocket knives! Not just a “this knife flips open in a cooler way than that one” video. Keep up the nice work!

    Learn to pinch open a lockback like the 110 and you can one hand open without the ugly thumb stud

    Please try and understand what I’m saying. It’s going to sound harsh, but please actually learn about what you want to talk about. A lot of yours points are completely nonsensical. For instance, from the very start, the Kershaw would actually be more controllable (than the opinel) because the Opinel handle especially round, I own a handful for these knives, including both of the aforementioned, and the kershaw is far better for bushcraft, it is also far better for cleaning game because it is much easier to index the edge. I don’t want to be “hateful” or anything like that, I just wish you would actually understand everything you are saying.

    That Benchmade. Man, that’s one hell of a pocket knife. Fixed blades always beat folders when it comes to bushcraft and survival, but that Benchmade looks like an excellent secondary/EDC to have.

    We obviously look at outdoor pocket knives in totally different ways. For me the two most important aspects of an outdoor pocket knife is weight and corrosion resistance. I am shocked to see the Bugout dismissed out of hand since it has an amazing weight to blade length ratio. Then to recommend the Opinel is odd because of the issues they have with rust and corrosion. Strength would the third most important aspect and again Opinel doesn't make any sense. It seems that the only thing you factored in was comfortable handle. Maybe these make sense as "Folding Bushcraft Knives" but not as general outdoors knives.

    If you look at folks doing serious backpacking, usually something like a Spyderco Dragonfly is all they need.

    Personally I have started carrying a Native 5 Salt series with LC200N steel (which probably wasn't out when you made this video) and I think the ergonomics plus weight plus coorosion resistence makes it perfect for the outdoors whether I am camping, backpacking, canoeing, etc. I also think the bugout is brilliant due to weight, color, blade length, steel…. But, opinions differ…

    BTW, I am a subscriber to your channel and think you do great work. Just think the knives you picked don't line up with what everyone is thinking when they talk about "outdoors."

    You were enthusiastic about the Gerber Gator knife. I know you can always go buy another knife, but many people get attached to their 'keepers.' How long do you think the rubber grip is going to last in a real use setting?

    I can't stand this guy… "Yeah let's not take this Kershaw or Benchmade out in the wilderness. What you're gonna want to do is take this Opinel wooden-handled knife."….. Those two knives you showed at the beginning would be infinitely better than a freaking Opinel. You know nothing about knives. You're just talking out your ass in most of your knife videos.

    Title is Top 5 Pocket Knives, not "Pocket Knives are better than Fixed Blades". Calm down.

    Ok I can see it but maybe the title would be better as, "Top 4 budget outdoor pocket knives plus one nicer one" There are a lot that are far superior to these but if you need to go as cheap as you can these would be more than fine.
