It's a SHAME that knife culture lacks popularity among women. I don't even get why so!! Instead, it should be other way around - As quoted by my wife! Wait...I know why!
It's because majority of the women spend plenty their time in the kitchen (using knives) and that's the reason why knife is something doesn't excite them. But, its about time we turn the table around! So, here is the list of best female pocket knives (Picked by wife so you can't go wrong with this list!!)
There isn't any major difference between men & women's pocket knives. The only thing that discriminates between a woman's pocket knife is looks and size. So, if you want the best female pocket knife for your girlfriend, wife or sister.
My wife's personal favorite knife is Kershaw Pink Chive.
These knives are not intended to be the ‘master-of-all-trades.’ There’s always a better knife for specialized tasks like slicing tomatoes, carving tent pegs from a fallen branch or skinning a deer but most of us want a single “do-everything” knife that stays with us throughout the day.
