Drop Point Blades

Drop Point Knives

Knives. What are they good for? Absolutely everything. OTF knives are one of the most useful tools a person can carry. When it comes to general use or everyday carry (EDC) there is one blade shape that comes to mind. Drop Point. 

Drop point blades are the most versatile blade shape a knife can have. The combination of a good tip and long edge/belly allows the blade to perform several different tasks.  Let’s break down the how each part of this blade works. It could become your next favorite blade. If it isn’t already of course.

The Tip

The overall shape of the drop point style makes the tip of this blade shape surprisingly strong.  Having a sharp, strong tip on a blade allows for puncturing or piercing. Puncturing or piercing can come in handy in outdoor scenarios including hunting and fishing but also everyday life scenarios such as putting an extra hole in your beltloop. 

The Belly

Calling all hunters. The belly on a drop point blade shape is designed perfectly for skinning a deer.  Having that curved blade provides a longer edge, allowing you to use the blade in its entirety for the job at hand.

If a drop point blade shape sounds like the kind of blade you want to have here is a look at some of our favorite Drop Point blades.
