Another type of all purpose knives are the fixed blade varieties. These knives have more stable blades. Typically, screws are used to hold the blade firmly in place and are attached to the handle.
Cooking or Kitchen knives are also utility knives but they are specifically designed for the kitchen. There are many sub-types of cooking knives such as boning, fillet, chefs, cleaver, bread, and ham slicer. There are other small knives that can be used for the kitchen but these are the most commonly used varieties.
The most popular all purpose knife is the retractable or switch blade type. As the name implies, the blade retracts inside the handle so you can store it safely when not in use.
