When you think back to your first knife, it’s likely that your dad was the person who gave it to you. So, to honor your dad with the same special gift he bestowed upon you, consider getting him a brand new knife for Father’s Day this weekend.
Here are five great knives to consider giving your father on that special Sunday.
Wenger Evolution Swiss Army Knife
The Swiss Army knife is usually the first knife a father gives his son. Add a twist to the classic dynamic by giving your dad a brand new model with some advancements from the model he is probably used to. The Wenger Evolution has many of the same features as the classic model, but it comes in an ergonomic handle and a more modern look.
Buck Knives Folding Hunter Pocketknife
Fewer brands exhibit class and quality like Buck. Show your dad that you’re no slouch when it comes to picking character over value by giving him Buck’s signature knife the Folding Hunter. The knife features a woodgrain handle and a classic lockback system.
Schrade Old Timer
An Old Timer for an old timer. It’s a joke almost too good not tell. While the Old Timer makes for a good laugh, it also makes for a good knife. This is the quintessential pocketknife that shows some personality perfectly blended with functionality. Another great aspect of this knife is that you can add a personal touch by getting your dad’s name engraved on the blade in a font of your choice.
Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops
Even if your father isn’t the biggest knife guy, this knife makes the perfect gift because it’s something to keep in your car for emergencies. Offer the Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops as a security for your father in case anything ever happens where he would need to cut a seat belt in a hurry or break a window to save someone’s life.
Finally, instead of factory-made knives, try giving your dad something even more special by buying him a custom knife. While these knives are usually more costly, they are more original and can better conform to the style and personality of your father. Custom knifemakers like Stewart J. Light, Hunter’s Creek Handmade Knives and others offer unique designs your dad will appreciate.
