Throwing knives are traditionally very specific tools. So it's nice to see one that does more than just scare the pants off the person standing in front of the target. The Kniper Throwing Knife Multi-Tool offers a total of 22 functions, including phillips and flathead screwdrivers, a fork, a pry bar, a sundial, a universal hex hole, a combination bottle and can opener, a closed wrench, a rangefinder, a saw, a nail remover, a wire stripper, a wire breaker, a ruler, and even a tobacco pipe. Oh, and it has a pretty sharp 420 high-carbon stainless steel blade, too.
Based on the designs of Serge Panchenko, the Dog Tag Knife from Spyderco combines utility with convenience. It features a chisel-ground CPM s30V blade that measures 2 inches when folded, and 3.23 when it's open — making it a go-to for simple indoor or outdoor everyday tasks. Fashioned to look just like a military dog tag and coated with a sleek black titanium carbonitride covering, so it's built to last.
Larger than a pocket knife but smaller than a machete, the Morakniv Companion Knife is ready to help on your next adventure. It features a 1/8-inch thick, 4.1-inch long carbon steel blade, balanced on the other end by an oversized ergonomic handle with a soft high friction grip. The included plastic sheath with belt clip ensures it's easy accessible when you need it.
As useful on a hike as it is on a boat, the Tops Hoffman Harpoon Knife is a versatile fixed blade knife. It measures eight inches in length with a 3.5-inch 1095 high carbon steel blade that sports black traction coating for added durability. The handle is wrapped in paracord for extra grip — as well as attaching to poles to make a spear or harpoon — and a black nylon sheath is included.
