    Knife Recommendation

    Full disclosure up front.....I know next to nothing if not less about knives. Long story short, looking at buying a knife for my brother as a Christmas gift.
    Thinking a nice EDC blade yet it needs to be a functional tool to be used in his lawn care business. Any recommendations or thoughts on features I
    should keep in mind? Budget is obviously a consideration but not an overriding one.

    I'm a pocket knife nut. Probably buy 3 a year. I was a fan of Kershaw when Ken Onion work there. Now I've switched to his designs at CRKT. My most recent is the Outrage EDC. I've tried the field strip CRKT knives and they are nice too. That might be something to look at for your brother. It's all personal. So I'm sure there are strong opinions for other selections.

    Ask him what he likes.
    Bestech is a Chinese company producing some excellent knives for small moneys. D2 steel and g10 scales. Lots of options. Depending on the $ you want to spend. Spiderco, Benchmade are good gifts.

    Take a good look at the Spyderco PM2. Great all around size, good steel and a great lock. Get in touch with Brad's Knives and take a look at his stock. Lots of good options and he is a great guy to deal with.

    Many thanks for the comments and recommendations. And I thought options and components available on firearms were dizzying!! Seems some research is in order. Might need to buy 2.....or 12 for myself to do the process justice

    Spyderco, Benchmade, or Zero Tolerance are considered the "big 3" of pocket knives. Pick something you think he'd like from one of them.

    I think a price range would be helpful. People say it isn't really an issue until they see a $400 recommendation.
    If it is something to use in his mowing business, would a Leatherman multi tool be more useful?

    He's got several multi tools hence my thought of a dedicated knife. You're right about price range. $400 might not go unnoticed by my better half. $250 or less would be a more realistic budget.

    Cool

    I recommend the SOG PowerAssist multi-tool. I EDC one on my belt whilst my Emerson is for self defense use only. The SOG has compound leverage pliers, cutters, screwdrivers, file and emergency seatbelt cutter plus assisted opening knife blade and sheepsfoot serrated cutting surface. They can be had from one of the sponsors on here, fleabay and Glamazon.
    Now for a real made in the USA knife, I recommend just about any Emerson. Just my two schillings worth but I am a knife snob.
