Knives Illustrated



There are numerous other knife blade styles available than those commonly used by most people. The Tanto point is one such example. This blade is inspired by Japanese swords and is considered a tactical knife.

Other good tactical knives include a spear point or needle point blade. Specialty knives include the hawkbill and talon. These styles can be used for cutting carpet, pruning plants and other gardening chores. The blunt knife tip is another specialty knife used by divers. The blunt tip keeps the diver safe and reduces the chances of accidently cutting a hose that could be deadly when deep underwater.

If you’re in the kitchen doing some slicing, look to use straight back blades, wharncliff­e blades, and serrated blades. Chopping is best left to straight back blades, sheepsfoot blades, and Dao cleavers.
