Knives serve a multitude of purposes across various domains, including home improvement, carpentry, clothing, defense, and self-defense. They are indispensable tools for scoring materials like plasterboard, cutting binding materials such as cable, packing tape, or plastic strapping, and trimming excess material from injection-molded rubber or plastic. Moreover, knives are essential for opening clamshells, cutting through cardboard, and various types of packaging materials. The burgeoning trend of dining out at cafes and restaurants presents promising growth opportunities for eateries globally. With the increasing number of restaurants, there is a rising demand for modern cookware and kitchen utensils, including knives. For instance, as of the beginning of 2022, the US National Restaurant Association employed over 14.5 million individuals across its extensive network of more than 1 million restaurant and foodservice establishments.

This expansion in the restaurant industry is driven by consumer preferences for high-quality food, exceptional service, socializing opportunities, and convenience, prompting restaurant owners to invest in new, premium kitchenware such as knives. Folding and retractable knives are commonly utilized in the construction sector. Hence, the anticipated substantial growth in the construction industry is expected to boost the global demand for knives.

Additionally, the increasing emphasis on aesthetic appeal in various cuisines is projected to drive the demand for kitchen knives in the coming years. These knives play a crucial role in achieving intricate cuts like brunoise, chiffonade, julienne, and macedoine, which are popular worldwide.
