Kershaw Ken Onion Leek Pocket Knife
These medium-sized Kershaw Leek knives are incredibly sharp out of the box, and are pretty stylish as well! I um… I mean manly looking. Not that we care about how our tools look or anything like that! Made in the USA!
Leatherman Wave Multi-Tool
This is by far my most well-used multi-tool. The Wave is regularly at the top of sales charts as well, and there’s no question as to why. It has a great feature-set, it’s relatively compact and pocket-friendly, and is very solidly built. Its engraveable surfaces allow for personalization.
Leatherman Wave $60-65
Leatherman Skeletool Multi-Tool
The Skeletool is a much more compact multi-tool compared to the Wave. Maybe not as compact as the Freestyle, but its screwdriver and carabiner/bottle opener come in handy. I own both the regular and CX versions and love ’em!
Leatherman Skeletool $45-60
Gerber Suspension Multi-Tool
While not as good as the above Leatherman multi-tools, the Suspension is more affordable and is still quite robust. I’ve kept one in the lab for nearly four years for quick and dirty jobs, and it hasn’t disappointed me yet. A recent Gerber 2-tool $30 deal also makes for a great gift idea.
Gerber Suspension $25-30
Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Knife
Gerber’s new Bear Grylls survival knife has been at the top of Amazon’s bestseller/most wished for/most gifted charts for a few weeks now.
Ordinarily I would scoff at the celebrity/athlete branding, but it looks like the Bear Grylls knife is a close adaptation of Gerber’s very well-reviewed LMF II Infantry Knife. The knife comes with a sheath, blade sharpener, fire starter and whistle.
