Not everybody is looking for a small and lightweight everyday carry knife. Some of us would like to carry a larger one. Bigger knives have both their advantages and disadvantages over the opposite ones. They are capable of cutting bigger objects at once. They might be a better fit for your hands due to their large size. On the other hand, they are heavier, therefore not very comfortable to carry. Large fixed blade knives are very common, but which of the large folding knives is the best?

One thought to “Large folding knives”
I have never used or handled the S&W; however I own both the Contego folder and fixed and could not be happier. They are both phenomenal knives and I will be using my folding Contego as my EDC, in anything but a business suit, for many years to come.
