Given the universal use by LEOs, the military and civilians, tactical folding blades continue to dominate the knife world.

If there was a major surprise here, it was that many old-line cutlery companies were aiming a wide variety of assisted opening and full-auto models at the uniform carry trade. (A warning here: While assisted openers are legal “most” places, the autos are restricted to credentialed LEO and military sales).

No matter what your personal views on blade length, steel or handle material, I’m sure you can find a model that will fit your needs out of my top picks of folding blades.
