Piranha knives have long been known for their reliability for a variety of outdoor uses. What’s more, considering the quality of knives offered by Piranha, you’ll find that they are affordable when compared to other knives used for similar purposes. There are several different types of knives offered by Piranha such as the Piranha Camo Amazon Automatic Knife, the Piranha Camo Bodyguard Auto Knife and many others. Each knife actually represents a different purpose or use for the knife, which is why you’ll find some sportsmen/women have several different types of knifes when they participate in several different activities.
The Piranha Amazon Knife Options
The Piranha Amazon knife offers several different blade types. The tactical blade is represented by the darker blade as a general rule. It is highly resistant to impact and is often considered to be a combat blade. It’s not uncommon for soldiers to carry tactical knives in combat, but they also make a great tool for survivalists.
Piranha also offers Amazon knives with a mirror finish. While there is no intended purpose for using a mirror finish, other than it simply looks great, you can use the mirror finish to create a glare in the eye of your enemy or even an animal to disguise your approach.
With an Amazon Piranha automatic knife you also have the option of straight blades or combinations of straight and serrated blades. This actually helps to make the knife a multipurpose object that is good for hunting, fishing, camping and so on.
Lastly are the blade handles. This is where you can let a little of your personality show through while getting another layer of protection from your knife. With etched in designs and patters, this ensures that your hands don’t slip from your knife. What’s more, the patterns and colors allow you to have an attractive knife as well.
