% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

So for my 19th birthday that is coming up real soon, I’m very likely to be getting a new pocket knife to replace my old worn out one, I would prefer it to be a folding knife. Knife length isn’t a problem due to the laws of my state. So what do you recommend for a folder?

    Some solid choices there!

    I got the Vaquero Grande by Cold Steel and haven’t looked back. Sure it’s enormous, but it’s blade is legendary. I remember my friends faces when I would stick this through a phone book as thick as your wrist, then slide it out to the side without drawing the blade at all! Cutting chores are effortless and it holds an edge like it’s made of a 50/50 alloy of vibranium and unobtanium.

    Good Journeys
