Father’s Day is fast approaching and what better gift than a classic pocket knife! Remember, Dads are really just big kids and like the rest of us they love their pocket knives. We can all remember back to the happy days of whittling our first tree branch around the campfire. That proud moment when you got to carry your first pocket knife will always be remembered so fondly. Now, Dad is a little older but he appreciates a good pocket knife just as much if not more than ever.
So, here are some great ideas for pocket knife gifts for Dad:
Buck Chairman Series
The Chairman series from Buck is perfect for gifting as it’s basically a fancy version of their regular folding knife collection. There are many styles to choose from but our favorite is the Folding Hunter. Dad will cherish this one forever!
Another Buck but this time the Nobleman which is an elegant gentleman’s knife available in stainless steel or with a titanium coating. It has a little more modern look to it but still very stylish.
Schrade Old Timer
Schrade Old Timers have been around for over a century and while we feel the quality has dipped a little in more recent times they still serve as excellent classic-look knives and perfect for gifting. These knives are very inexpensive too.
Case Medium Stockman
Case has been making timeless pocket knives since your Grandad was born and make excellent Father’s Day gifts. Dad will be over the moon with any Case knife but the Case Medium Stockman in Navy Blue bone is a fine choice.
Swiss Army Farmer Knife
The Swiss Army knife has been a favorite with campers and knife collectors for a very long time now. The classic Swiss Army knife is inexpensive, yet practical and with decent quality. For Dad, why not step up slightly from the basic model and go with the Farmer alox model?
Leatherman Wave Multitool
If a classic pocket knife doesn’t meet all your needs then consider a multitool. Leatherman has been the leader in multitools for some time and their Wave model is ever popular. Again, a great gift for Father’s Day.
Benchmade Mini Griptilian
For the younger Dad’s who would appreciate something a little more modern and dare we say “tactical” looking then you can not go wrong with the Benchmade Mini Griptilian. Smaller than the larger Griptilian and available in a bunch of different colors, the “mini-grip” will serve him well for many years to come.
Whatever you choose, Dad will undoubtedly be thrilled to receive a pocket knife!
