It can be used for any type of cutting job. Normally, all purpose knives would have a 3 to 4 inches long blade. The handle could be made from any material depending on the manufacturer but the most common is laminated plastic. Some handle designs also include die-cast metal lining. But there are designer all purpose utility knives that have handles made from ivory, animal horn, or silver.
These knives normally have longer blades also. Handle designs would be very similar with switch or retractable blade knives. Most designer knives will fall into this category.
These knives are bigger and composed of very strong metal alloy. Although they are utility knives also, they are more suitable for cutting very tough objects. These are commonly issued to military personnel as a general purpose tool and additional weaponry.
