$13 Smith & Wesson Knife Takes on $250 Knife, Others in Ultimate Test


Putting together the perfect toolbox is as much of an art as it is a science.

While some believe that going out and spending the money on the big name brands will yield big returns, others like to try and save money where they can, especially if it means high quality at a low price. We don’t think there’s really a correct answer when it comes to building the best box, instead, if we asked 100 tradesmen, we would probably get about 100 different answers on what the right composition of a toolbox should be.

In order to try and help us make the most informed decision on these matters, we have YouTube channels like Project Farm who stepped to the plate this time to try to help us get to the bottom of if saving money is really saving money. At the end of the day, there are definitely situations where saving a bit of cash upfront on a cheap tool might end up costing much more in the long run. However, there are definitely affordable tools out there that can stand up to the more expensive competition. In fact, we have even seen situations where cheaper tools end up being even better than the expensive competition.

In this particular comparison, we check out a variety of different knife brands. At the bottom end of the price spectrum, we find a $13 knife from Smith & Wesson that has 33,000 reviews that seem to think that this knife is worth buying. However, is there a situation where this $13 unit can stand up to a $250 knife? This creator is digging into the different brands and getting hands on to find out just that.

By testing everything from opening and closing smoothness to how well each knife can sustain being dropped on the tip, this comparison really digs into the details and gathers data to get to the bottom of the great knife debate.
