What is a Congress Pocket Knife?


A Congress knife also known as a “traditional Congress pocket knife” or “old fashion Congress knife” is typically a four bladed pocket knife; but sometimes it has two or five blades. These blades are made of titanium, carbon, and stainless steel. The blade configuration is as follows; the largest blade on the Congress is the coping blade, directly behind the coping blade is a smaller sheepsfoot blade, on the opposite side of the knife is a spey blade and behind the spey blade is the pen blade. All four of the blades are slip-joint non locking blades (the backspring of the knife creates a “snap” that keeps the blade from closing).  Congress knives usually have three polished nickel silver bolsters. These bolsters can be squared or rounded depending on the exact model.


How big are Congress Knives?


Congress pocket knives range in size from 1 1/2 inches overall closed to 8 inches overall closed. The smallest are considered Tiny Congress Knives followed by Small Congress Knives then Standard or Medium Congress Knives and the largest are Large Congress Knives. The most popular of all the sized is the medium/standard, these knives are normally around 4 inches closed.

How to care for your Congress Pocket Knife?


As with any knife; with proper care maintenance of your Congress Pocket Knife will insure that your new Congress will last a lifetime. Follow the steps below and you will be rewarded with a great tool.   

  • Always keep your Congress blades sharp: It is much easier to touch up a blade with a medium or fine grit sharpening stone than wait for the edge to be totally dull and have to reshape the edge. Plus a sharp knife is always safer to use compared to a dull one.
  • Clean out the inside of your Congress knife: Dirt, dust and lint all collect on the side of your knife where the blades lay when closed. Also around the tangs of the blades is an area that needs to be cleaned regularly.
  • Oil your knife: It does not matter of your knife has stainless or carbon steel blades. It is important to keep a thick layer of oil on the blades and pivot points of the knife. This will keep your Congress blades moving properly and will help prevent rusting.
