Why You Should Always Carry A Knife

Whether you’re an avid outdoor enthusiast, or spend your free time out on the water, you likely know the importance of carrying a good knife. Unfortunately, many less experienced nature-lovers dismiss the importance of including a knife in their outdoor kit. At Boye Knives, we believe that a high-quality knife is an absolute necessity for everyone, from outdoor enthusiasts to bike messengers. Here are a few reasons you should consider carrying a knife with you.

Emergency Situations

If you’re ever in a car accident, you may find yourself stuck in your seat belt. Even minor collisions have a way of jamming the seat belt, keeping you from being able to exit the car. If you’re uninjured, you’ll be able to cut yourself free with a good knife rather than waiting for help. Likewise, a good folding knife, like our cobalt boat knives, can double as a window-punch should you need to escape through a stuck car window.

Cutting Material

If your employer bans pocket knives, leave yours at home. But if you’re in the service industry, a knife can help make your job easier. From opening boxes to cutting tape, a good knife will hold its edge longer than a box cutter and will be able to cut more effectively and safely.

Eating Utensil

If you’ve ever brought your lunch but forgotten to bring silverware, you know there’s nothing quite so frustrating. However, a knife is really the only utensil you need.

At Boye Knives, we believe that everyone should have the perfect knife. Our Cobalt knives are the perfect tool for boaters and city-dwellers alike. The folding blade makes it safe to carry in your pocket while the easy-open hinge makes it simple to operate in emergency situations. Order your knife today!
