Folding knives are compact and easy to carry—that’s why they’re popular with anyone with a pocket to put them in.

Folding knives with combination blades are a popular choice for adventurists on the go. Combination blades feature both a sharp, plain edge, as well as a saw-like, jagged serrated section that is suitable to cut through tough materials.

Because you never know if you need to cut a length of rope or slice up some fresh fruit while on the trail, a folder equipped with a combination blade can fit just about any job you need it for.
