In this Project Farm video, Todd tests out 15 brands of everyday carry folding knives: Fallkniven, Benchmade, Gerber, Victorinox, Kershaw, Cold Steel, Kizer, CRKT Fossil, Leatherman Skeletool, Milwaukee, DeWalt, COAST, Kingmax, Vulcan, Master USA.
In the end, the expensive Benchmade ($170) performed best, but the Kizer ($69) and Kershaw ($87) also showed impressive performance.
The surprise was the Kingmax (at only $13). It performed decently and includes other useful features, like a window break and seat belt cutter.
