Great knives to give moms for Mother’s Day

If you think all a mother wants for Mother’s Day is an apron or a mop, you’re completely wrong.

A lot of mothers out there want something that’s practical, special and has a little bit of you in it. That’s why there’s nothing better than getting your mom a knife (for reasons why mothers would want a knife, check out this column from Tracy Morrow). Here are some great knife models to get that knife-loving mother in your family (be it a mom, sister, aunt or grandmother).

Leatherman Pink Style CS

Show your mom you care about her and mothers all over the world by giving her a pink Breast Cancer Awareness Leatherman. Not only does a portion of the sale go toward the National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation, but your mother can proudly display this pink tool. Leathermans are a really good gift for mothers because they are multifunctional. These are all-around tools that will help her make her day easier.

CKRT Shrimp – Designed by Gerry McGinnis

The Shrimp by CKRT is a charming little knife, which comes in a variety of bright colors. It makes such a great gift for a number of reasons. First, it’s small enough to fit on a keychain, so she doesn’t have to worry about lugging it around. Second, it’s a very simple knife, which makes it good for a wide range of uses.

RAT Pink Izula

While the two previous ones are more general purpose knives any mom could use, the Izula is best for an adventurous and spry mom. This is a great survival knife that’s smaller than some of the other survival knives, but it can also be used for daily tasks, including opening packages, cutting twine and more.

Chef’s knife

Although it’s probably not what you had in mind when thinking about knives, a chef’s knife is a great way to show the moms in your life you care. A chef’s knife is something most people use every day. A personalized knife, such as the one from Ergo Chef above, could be that thoughtful gift your mother loves and cherishes.
