The Parker River "Classic" Knife is a sturdy and reliable linerlock knife designed for everyday use. The classic look of the wood handle is inspired by the knives our grandfathers carried years ago.

Made from high quality stainless steel, the partially serrated drop point blade holds a sharp edge while being extremely resistant to corrosion. This is a solid knife designed to last a lifetime. The wood handles offer the perfect space for custom engraving. Add a name or message to the knife, up to 18 characters, and create a unique tool that's also a keepsake.

"Each knife is shipped in a handsome burlap gift bag and includes a penny, plus a card explaining the tradition of including a penny with a new knife."

• When open it measures 6.25". The ideal length for most cutting needs.

• The linerlock securely holds the blade open.

• At a weight of 4.5 ounces, this is solid knife designed to handle daily use.

• Beautiful red grain wood handles. Please note, actual color of the knives will vary slightly due to the natural coloring of the wood.

The Parker River Knife story starts close to 100 years ago along the banks of the Parker River. My wife's great grandmother owned a restaurant and gift shop right on the water called Fernalds Auto Inn. After WWII, my wife's grandfather converted the restaurant location into a full service marina, Fernald's Marine. Just recently, after about 65 years as a Marina, the last of the Fernald brothers decided it was time to retire. Rather then let the family business tradition die, my wife and I decided it was time to write a new chapter in the family story.

Drawing on years of experience working along the Parker River, we've designed a line of knives that are as beautiful as they are functional. The river has taught us to respect and love nature. Our products are designed to last a lifetime and to be cherished as much as we love this little river.

I just ordered this item from the direct manufacturer and was sooooo beyond diaaapointed with the packaging! I wish I had ordered it from here as you are always professional and items come boxes properly. Hoping it gets resolved but if not I will be returning the item and purchasing it from you like I should have in the first place! A not so loyal customer that regrets the hell out of it #knifedepotorbust

I cannot even begin to tell you how overjoyed and extremely satisfied I was with this beautiful personalized knife, as well as the beautiful personalized tin that I ordered with it with a very special poem I had wrote inscribed on the outside. I had sent a specialized request in my order form requesting to please please please try to have my order shipped to me by Christmas Day, despite having only placed my order on the 22nd of December, and the order form stating it would be impossible for my order to arrive by Christmas in the shipping options. It in fact arrived even earlier than Christmas Day, arriving at my doorstep before even Christmas EVE! I had ordered this very special knife and accompanying tin for the man I love for Christmas, and let me just say, he was MORE than excited and got very emotional upon opening this gift and seeing a tin with a beautiful sentimental poem I had wrote about our love for on another, and a personalized engraved red oak handle pocket knife with his very own name on it inside. He said he had never received such an awesome pocket knife before in his life and never even thought it was possible to have a personalized knife with his own name on it before then! He has loved his knife from day one and uses it every single day, being the carpenter and alpha male type of guy he is, and it never leaves his side and sits right on top of his nightstand beside his side of the bed. He also keeps the beautiful tin you guys engraved in a very special place next to his other cherished keepsakes, and uses it to store only his most favorite Nick knacks and such. Thank you guys again so very very much, and I am most certainly, eternally grateful for your outstanding customer service and promptness in satisfying the needs of your customer!

I bought a couple of these for presents for my family and they were great. The engraving is a nice quality and the knife is very sturdy. Great knife for the price point.

This is my preferred pocket knife. The wood grained handle carries the script personalized text nicely. The thumb blade release and lock blade work well. The straight blade/serrated blade combination provide the best options for use. Very sharp!

I bought a pocket knife for my husband and he loved it! It was sharp and shiny when I went to look at it before wrapping it. The engraving was hard to read because I got the dark wooden handle but I wish they could do all stainless steel and engrave on the blade itself and the handle. I would definitely buy another from Knife Depot!

I like the looks, but it needs two things, a carbon steel blade and an opening assist....imho
