It always makes us grin when we come across a new brand of pocket knife, so we were glad to discover Sarge.  We’re not sure how long they’ve been around, but their small and relatively practical lineup leans a bit towards sports knives. The classy looking SK-403 gives us reason to stop and take a look.

The 403 measures three inches, with a 1-3/4″ clip point and 1-3/4″ razor — nothing special there.  But take a look at the burl wood handle and glance at the price, and it starts to get interesting.  At just under $11 it costs a lot less than you’d expect for a knife with these features. Even if it’s junk, it might be worth the money to find out.

If it’s not junk, then you just scored a great blade for almost nothing. If it isn’t up to spec, then you just scored a burl-handled shop knife –- which isn’t a total loss either.

    Do Not EVER use a straight-razor that has a crisp edge sharpened on Japanese water stones — terrifying!

    Strop the damn things ( they were known as “face scrapers” for a reason, BTW ) for that rounded edge that Wilkinson Sword blades were famous for.

    Also, I don’t know if this razor would even be able to hold the kind of edge needed for it..

    I’d be afraid of shaving with a razor with a square point with a handle like that. The corner is likely to dig into your skin, especially with the handle not able to fold back out of the way (maybe it can, but it doesn’t look like it).

    I’ve shaved with a pocket knife about as much as I’ve shaved with anything. A long time ago I bought this nice big Lakota folder (I don’t know if they’re still around) and it was so sharp and so shiny that I could shave with it and use it for a mirror at the same time. When I was in a real hurry.

    I have bought a knife like this, being told it was for cutting marijuana…
