10 Shamelessly Pink Knives

The color pink evokes a wave of emotions and feelings, including love, beauty, femininity, and tenderness. You may not think those sentiments match up with the rough-and-tumble world of knives, but you’re sorely mistaken.

Knives are tools for all types of people and personalities, from the stock trader and lumberjack to the fashion designer and plumber.

For all those who enjoy the look and temperament of the color pink, we assembled a list of 10 fetching pink-handled knives.

1. Ontario RAT I

We’re kicking things off with a highly renowned EDC. The Ontario RAT I was on our list of best EDC knives for those on a budget. With its 3.5-inch satin-finished blade, the knife is known for taking a beating and still performing.

This knife is great for everything, including the outdoors and around the house. The nylon handle is a delectable pink.

2. Kershaw Chive, Pink

The Kershaw Chive is a nice little knife with an alluring shape. From the inventive mind of Ken Onion, this knife features a small 1.9-inch blade made of 420HC stainless steel with a bead-blasted finish.

It bursts to life using the Speedsafe assisted-opening mechanism. The 6061-T6 anodized aluminum handle is finished with a pink that won’t wear off.

3. Spyderco Squeak

With a blade length just under 2 inches, the Spyderco Squeak is another knife that fits nonchalantly in a bag or pocket. The pink handle is FRN.

Like all Spyderco knives, the Squeak has the Spydie hole, which allows for single-handed ambidextrous opening.

4. KA-BAR Dozier Folding Hunter, Pink

The KA-BAR Folding Dozier is a beast. Don’t let the cheap price or the pink scales scare you off. This knife comes from the mind of Bob Dozier and does everything you could ever want or need in a folding knife.

5. Cold Steel Broken Skull, Pink

The Broken Skull is a folder designed by Steve Austin with cues taken from the iconic Buck 110 Folding Hunter. The knife has a long 4-inch black-coated blade that locks into place with Demko’s reliable Tri-Ad lock. The contoured G-10 handles are an eye-catching pink.

The black accents clash well with the pink handle scales.

6. Boker Plus Cruel Girl

The Cruel Girl series from Boker Plus is meant to bring color and personality to the world of working knives. Just because a knife is pink doesn’t mean it can’t handle everyday tasks. This backlocking knife has a partially serrated 3.1-inch blade made from AUS8 steel. There is an oval notch in the blade for one-handed opening.

The pink FRP handle scales are lightly textured.

7. Uncle Henry Pink Stockman

The stockman is a classic and unassuming design, so it’s only fitting that it also gets the pink treatment. This Uncle Henry model has three blades, steel bolsters, and pink handles.

8. ESEE RAT Izula

The Izula is the only knife on this list that’s completely pink. This fixed blade knife is as versatile as they come. The 2.63-inch blade makes it great to carry underneath your clothing or even as a survival knife. The skeletonized handle gives you the ability to wrap paracord or attach a handle.

This iteration of the knife comes with a kit that includes a sheath, paracord, emergency whistle, MOLLE lock, and more.

9. Victorinox Classic SD, Translucent Pink

When compiling this list of 10 knives, I was torn between adding the pink Victorinox Classic SD or the translucent pink Victorinox Classic SD. I opted for the Classic SD Pink. This knife is the pink version of one of the best-selling knives ever made.

10. Spyderco Native 5, Pink

Finally, there’s the Native 5 in pink. Just because a knife is pink doesn’t mean it can’t be made of the best materials. The Native 5 is a popular Spyderco model with a great design that’s the perfect size for everyday carry.

The blade is just under 3 inches with S30V steel and lightweight FRN scales. The backlock is a tried-and-true locking mechanism, and the handle allows the user to hold the knife in different grips.

Although this is the most expensive of the pink models on this list, it’s hard to argue against the value when weighing materials and quality.
