Your best tactical knife should only be made of the best stainless steels from USA, Germany, Sweden, and Japan. Don't waste your money on cheap Chinese stainless like Xcrmo13, Xcrmo9, Xcrmo8 and others as they don't hold a performance edge. Are you going to use the tactical knife in a police or military job description?

Your best tactical knife should be comfortable in the grip and not move around in your hand. It should be ergonomically sound in your hand. The last thing to consider is the carry option that you will employ. Will you carry your tactical folding knife using a pocket clip? Will you carry your tactical folder in a belt sheath? If a fixed blade will you carry in a sheath on your belt or on a MOLLE compatible vest?
