There’s only one thing to hate about the Smith & Wesson M & P Bodyguard. See, we saw the name “Bodyguard” and immediately the Whitney Houston version of “I will always love you” got stuck in our head. (You’re welcome.) Otherwise, this knife is short, sweet, and to the point.
This affordable flipper has a closed length of about 3.5″. Rounded cutouts in the sides give it a great look and keep the weight down to just over 2 ounces. The rubberized aluminum handle houses a tip-up pocket clip. Overall, this lightweight linerlock feels great in your hand, and the slender profile stays out of your way until you need it.
When it’s time for action, this knife is both fast and smooth. The 2.75″ 8Cr13MoV spear point features ultra-glide ball bearing pivot technology for an absolutely smooth opening with either the flipper or thumb studs.

We don’t know if buying the Smith & Wesson M & P Bodyguard will permanently remove the “I Will Always Love You” earworm, but for only $20 it’s absolutely worth a shot. You can get one by clicking any link in the article or simply clicking the button below.
