True knife enthusiasts are constantly adding more and more cool knives to their collection. By now, you’ve probably already realized that your knife collection will never be truly complete and that’s why we’ve prepared a comprehensive list of cool knives that every knife lover will enjoy. The most devoted collectors among you will probably already have some of these in their arsenal, but luckily, our list includes lesser-known names as well!
Before we start, it’s important to remember that there are different knives for different needs and the same recommendation can’t be made for someone who mainly opens letters with his knife and someone who is fishing on the weekends. However, unless you have some super-specific requirements, this list should prove useful in your search for the best knives around. There’s something for everyone.
Having said that, read the reviews carefully and make sure that the listed knife is the right one for you, but keep in mind that there is no such thing as owning too many knives! Even if you can’t find a use for it today, you may very well need it tomorrow! So, without further ado, let’s get down to business.

Light Up Tactical Knife
Tactical knife fans are in for a treat with this model that includes a handle with integrated LED lights. If you’re fishing at night, or simply work in the dark, this knife will prove extremely useful.

The blade itself is folding, which makes it convenient and easy to carry around on, for example, camping or fishing trips.
.50 Caliber Bullet Folding Knife
The true weapon lover will appreciate the fact that United Cuttlery have mixed a knife with a .50 caliber bullet to bring you this folding knife. The solid brass case ends with a polished copper-plated bullet on the end that acts as a sharp skullscrusher pummel. It has a folding edge, so it’s easy to carry around with you, although the bullet tip still might pierce holes in fabric. This knife is a nice addition to your arsenal no matter if you want to open letters with it or load it into your rifle.
Batman Twin Blade Batarang Knife

Both edges of the knife are foldable and when folded the knife looks just like a regular bat. When opened, the full length of the knife comes in at 11 inches.
Spiral Blade Knife
If you want a knife that screams danger, then definitely check out the M48 Cyclone boot knife with a spiral blade.

Zip Blade Keychain Knife
Another addition to our list of cool knives, the Gerber GDC is a keychain knife meant for easy and quick transport.

It also comes with a zipper attachment which is useful for carrying it around daily. Another neat feature is the safety lock, which prevents the knife from accidentally opening in your pocket. If you’re a true knife lover, that has happened more times than you’re willing to admit.
