About

Average pocket knives are bulky, require constant maintenance if you want to keep a sharp edge and they're overkill for most tasks.  We wanted to create a tool that could utilize razor sharp replaceable hobby blades and be easily carried and forgotten about, until it's needed. 

FEATURES

  • Tiny, but powerful patent pending design
  • Fits 12 types of blades
  • Right and left handed
  • Single handed opening and closing
  • Quick and easy blade replacement
  • Inexpensive off-the-shelf blades
  • Razor sharp
  • Hard lock closed and open
  • Streamlined shape to prevent catching on clothing
  • High carbon steel blades
  • Flight ready when blade is removed
  • Made in the U.S.A.

 The bulk of the cost of most modern pocket knives is in the blades. The Everyday Blade™ fits 12 different types of inexpensive replaceable blades found at most hardware stores and online. No more sharpening! These blades are some of the sharpest on the market.

 A dull knife can be more dangerous than a sharp knife.  A sharp knife requires less force to cut, thus allowing more control over the knife.  When your blade is dull, quickly and easily replace it with a sharp new one.

 Are you a righty or a lefty?  The Everyday Blade™ can be adjusted to open with either hand.

 Traveling can be a real pain.  Forgetting to leave your pocket knife at home can make it even worse.  With the Everyday Blade™, you have one less thing to worry about.  Just remove and discard the blade.

Ensure the blade is always responsibly discarded and won't damage the trash bag.

Every aspect of how the Everyday Blade™ works, feels and looks has been scrutinized over nearly two years of development.  We put function over form and created a safe and useful tool first, and the aesthetics followed.

Here at Korcraft, LLC we design and develop tools and outdoor gear that help make life easier.  Our small size has allowed us to spend nearly two years refining the Everyday Blade™.  Our founder, Shane Korthuis, has extensive experience designing and developing products ranging from medical equipment, consumer products, ATVs, production superbikes, and military equipment.  With your help, we can make this project a reality.

We created over a hundred prototypes, rigorously tested them, then went back to the drawing board and did it all over again.

Risks and challenges

Our team has the collected experience designing, developing and producing thousands of production ready components. We've spent nearly two years creating over a hundred prototypes and testing our design. After funding, we're ready to go straight to tooling and ordering components. Every project has its own unique risks and challenges. If any unforeseen issues do arise, we will keep everyone well informed and tell you how we solved the problem.

DISCLAIMER
Every country and state has different knife laws regarding what you can carry and own. Check your local laws before ordering your Everyday Blade™. Korcraft, LLC is not responsible for any shipments held up at customs or returned.

These blades are some of the sharpest available and can begin to cut with almost no pressure applied to the blade. Always exercise caution and common sense when using your knife. Keep anything you do not wish to cut away from the blade.

The final form may vary slightly from pictures.

Always responsibly discard the blades.
