Father’s generally say they don’t want anything. That’s a bunch of malarkey. Dad’s love getting gifts, especially cool gifts they can play with. That’s why a cool knife makes a great gift for Father’s Day.
Let’s assume Dad enjoys the outdoors and camping – perhaps he likes to get away and bushcraft. Starting with a beast, the Marttiini Full Tang Knife is built for the serious outdoorsman who needs superior performance and durability. This heavy, full tang knife with a laminated handle side-riveted to the beefy tang is pretty bad – in a good way. A legendary bushcraft knife, the Mora Garberg Survival Black Blade Knife is built for its namesake, survival. With a full tang blackened carbon steel blade, sheath-mounted diamond sharpener, firesteel, symmetrical textured rubberized handle for a solid grip, and heavy plastic sheath this knife is ready for anything the wilderness can throw at it. Beauty meets durability with the Wood Jewel Leuku with Elk Engraving Knife. The hefty solid curly birch handle is adorned with an engraving of an elk and the carbon steel full-tang blade is ready to work.
Dad into fishing? Knives of the North has a large selection of premier fishing knives that’ll make the day go smoother and the catch more rewarding. A great all-on-one knife for any fisherman, the Marttiini Martef Fishing Knife makes filleting easy with a sharp, narrow blade and a serrated back of the knife. Bonus, the blade is coated with Martef, a titanium based slippery non-stick coating similar to Teflon, making slicing a smooth feat. A solid, functional, and more basic knife, the Marttiini Basic Fillet Green 6” Blade Knife features a flexible stainless steel blade and a handle made of textured rubberized plastic for a slip-free grip. The finger guard and hooked pommel also ensure a firm grip. Dad a little clumsy? No worries! The Mora Floating Serrated Knife has a cork handle making it very lightweight. When dropped in the water it floats pommel up! The bright orange pommel makes it easy to spot.
For the Dad who likes to tinker around the house, we have a variety of very useful utility knives. The Mora Garberg Knife with Leather Sheath features a medium-length, drop-point stainless steel blade with a texturized rubberized handle for a good grip. With a mostly symmetrical handle, this knife can be held comfortably with the blade edge either facing up or down. A timeless design built for function, the Mora Classic No. 2 with Finger Guard Knife has minimalist lines, carbon steel blade and richly stained birch handle. The simple metal finger guard prevents a hand from sliding onto the blade. Popular for the outdoors and even a backyard campfire, the Roselli Heimo 4” Knife Bushcraft with Firesteel is a beautiful and functional knife with a durable carbon steel blade and a stained curly birch handle with brass staples and lanyard hole, which is coated with linseed oil. A firesteel is tucked into the leather sheath for sparking up a campfire.
Is Dad one fun guy who likes to throw things? Throwing axes and throwing knives in a safe environment, that is! We carry a variety of throwing axes and knives that will satisfy competitive fun. The Norse War Axe doubles as a tough workhorse for chopping and a throwing axe that throws beautifully with a nice long edge with lots of penetrating ability. Score! For smaller targets, the Large Hibben Throwing Knives, 3-Pack are designed by Gil Hibben, well known designer of throwing axes and knives. These knives feature a great profile, superior balance, and are artfully styled.
For the Dad who likes to collect or just appreciates cool things, we have a large selection of unique knives. The Marttiini Wood Grouse Knife is stunningly beautiful with a long, wide stainless steel blade engraved with the Marttiini signature. The main attraction is the pommel, which is solid metal cast into the shape of a grouse’s head. This theme is carried out on the black leather sheath with a wood grouse illustration in gold ink. The Condor Indigenous Puukko Knife is a tribute to Viking era knives. The blade is high-carbon steel with an antique finish. The handle is walnut which is carved and burned with a complex Celtic knotwork pattern, and is finished with a wire-wrap inset. The Marttiini Lapp Knife 280 is a great gift for the Dad who has everything and wants to make a statement. This is an amazing knife with a 17” blade which is etched with a woodland scene along the length of the stainless steel blade. The illustrated leather sheath follows suit. Truly an exceptional knife.
Whichever sandbox Dad likes to play in, we have a knife that would make a perfect Father’s Day gift.
