As young adults graduate from college and embark on careers or other life adventures, a practical gift that may be overlooked is a quality knife. Knives are not only useful for camping, fishing, bushcraft, canoeing, hiking, and household tasks, but they can also be valuable collector’s items. When shopping for a knife, quality is key. The Scandinavian knives we sell at Knives of the North are high quality and come in a range of styles. Say congratulations to the graduate with a gift that signifies new adventures!
A very useful knife for the graduate who enjoys camping or bushcraft, the Mora Garberg Survival Black Blade Knife is built for its namesake, survival. A legendary bushcraft knife with a full tang blackened carbon steel blade, sheath-mounted diamond sharpener, fire steel, symmetrical textured rubberized handle for a solid grip, and heavy plastic sheath, this knife is ready for anything the wilderness can throw at it.
The Condor Cavelore Knife is a solid, full-tang bushcraft knife whose “ancient” design is reminiscent of something that a Neolithic cave dweller would have made. This is a unique and distinctive knife with a hammered flint finish that serves as a serious working tool...and a unique gift.
Dogs are known as man’s best friend, so why not have one to carry in a pocket? The Järvenpää Boxer Knife is a traditional utility knife of the Sami people, who are indigenous to the far northern region of Scandinavia. This is a stunningly gorgeous all-around camp or utility knife with a very cool feature of a boxer dog at the helm. The pommel of this knife is cast in the shape of the head of a boxer dog and the handle is made of stacked layers of birch bark which is polished smooth. Truly a useful work of art that will last a lifetime.
Whether already on their own or getting ready to cast out of the family home, a recent graduate could use a quality cooking tool. They may not appreciate it right away, but when the allure of frozen burritos and ramen wears off they’ll be glad to carve up some prosciutto and chop a melon with a quality knife. The Roselli UHC Cook’s Knife features a thin blade made of ultra-high carbon steel that lasts with an ergonomic handle made of curly birch. A handy, high-edged universal kitchen knife, the Roselli Littlecook Knife’s design is inspired by knives popular in Japan and is ideal for chopping vegetables, cutting meat and scooping. Each of these Roselli knives comes with an attractive birch storage block for countertop display.
Maybe the recent graduate just wants to get out, have fun, and blow off steam from the last four or more years of school. If so, a 3-pack of Large Ruko Le Sphinx Throwing Knives just might fit the bill. A quality knife makes a big difference in the knife throwing arena. These heavier weight throwing knives insure a smooth, consistent rotation for novice and expert alike. This is one of the finest throwing knives that we have ever found, and we're very proud to offer this to our fellow throwing enthusiasts.
