Knives FAQs:  

  1. Is it legal to buy knives and edged tools online?  

Generally speaking, it is completely legal to buy knives and other edged tools online all over the U.S. However, some U.S. states impose restrictions on buying, carrying, and/or owning specific styles of knives, which are generally regarded as weapons rather than tools.  

These include switchblades and ballistic knives (which are prohibited by federal law), Bowie knives, and various kinds of daggers.  

At Natchez Shooters Supplies, we only offer knives that are fully compliant with U.S. federal law. However, be sure to check your local legislation before making a purchase.  

  1. What are knife blades typically made of?  

The blades of most outdoor-specific knives are usually made of various steel alloys. The most commonly used alloys are:  

  • Carbon steel, which features a high concentration of carbon in the alloy. Carbon steel is the most rudimentary steel alloy and is usually featured in knives that are intended for rough use, such as machetes. It is tough, durable, and relatively easy to sharpen.  

  • Tool steel, which is a variation of carbon steel designed for even more durability and toughness. It features additional elements in the alloy to achieve the desired ruggedness, such as tungsten, chromium, vanadium and molybdenum. Tool steel knives hold their sharpness for a long time and resist abrasions. However, tool steel is more prone to corrosion than other alloys.  

  • Stainless steel, which is the most ubiquitous steel alloy, and also a variation of carbon steel with extra chromium added for corrosion resistance. Stainless steel alloys vary in hardness and, as a result, toughness. However, all of them are well-rounded, reliable performers. 

 

  1.  What are the different knife blade designs?  

Knife blade designs mainly differ from one another by the shape of the blade tip. Most blade designs are:  

  • Clip-point: The most common blade style, the clip-point blade is characterized by its spine that appears to have been “clipped off” toward the blade’s upward-pointing tip. Clip-point blades are highly versatile and very handy for tasks that require precision piercing.  

  • Drop-point: The opposite of clip-point blades, drop-point blades feature a mostly straight spine that curves down slightly towards the tip. These blades are typically wide and have a precise tip, which makes them versatile for both piecing and slicing.  

  • Wharncliffe: This blade design features a straight or an almost straight blade and a downward-curving spine, which helps minimize the chance of accidental puncturing. This makes Wharncliffe blades best suitable for slicing.  

  • Gut hook: As the name suggests, gut hook blades feature a sharp, hook-shaped curve on the spine towards the tip, the purpose of which is primarily to dress and gut game. As a result, the primary application of gut hook-blade knives is hunting.  

  • Talon: Rather than curving outward, talon blades curve inwards to create a shape that’s similar to a sickle, with or without a sharp point. With its roots in farming, a talon blade is best suited for trimming vegetation, but may be useful in other tasks as well.  

 

  1. How much do knives cost?  

The price of a knife or another edge tool depends on a variety of factors, such as blade style and overall design, the type of steel used in the blade, the materials used in the handle, and, of course, the brand.  

For example, you can expect to pay as little as $15 for an entry-level fixed blade knife and as much as $300 for a high-end folding knife made from high-grade steel or exotic metals, such as titanium.

  1. What are the different types of knives? 

Outdoor-oriented knives are typically distinguished along two lines: their construction and their purpose. For instance, when it comes to the knife’s construction, the two most common types are fixed-blade knives and folding knives.  

Meanwhile, in terms of the purpose, outdoor knives range from survival knives, designed to serve as multi-functional tools in the wilderness, to camping knives, which are more intended for the tasks that come up during a camping trip — cutting up some tree branches to start a fire, opening a tin can, or cutting up some food.
