There is no EDC set without at least one knife. But, unless you are a professional killers, wild boar hunters or military personnel on duty, you are unlikely to use them to stab anything or anyone.
In my specific case, a pocket knife is a tool that comes in handy every day to open bags and packages of various kinds: in a word, unboxing.
For this kind of work, using a suitable tool can really make a difference. Try unpacking your new Smart LED TV with a Rambo dagger. You will take it out of the box with the screen that bleeds pixels on the floor. Not quite a good show.
However, a good unboxing knife must have some individual characteristics. Compact but comfortable to use, precise and with a not excessively large blade and, last but not least, with a nice design (even more important if you do video or photo reviews).
So I’ve selected the 5 best knives for a perfect unboxing work. Here they are below.
