    Dad's knife

    My father came up to me last night and said that he wanted a everyday carry knife. He likes my knife a lot. I carry a kershaw ken onion 1660VIB. My knife is the ideal knife for him but stronger and better grip. What would be a good knife for him to carry? If you guys can give me some links and ideas that would be great.

    I carry a Kershaw Ken Onion Leek. This might not be for him. Do an Ebay search. I got mine for less than half price. I'm sure you'll find a good deal.

    Try the Spyderco product line. There's so many good ones, I can't suggest one out of them. They're good work knives and most won't break the bank. Happy hunting.

    Hi elrey718, I would second Betty's suggestion to check out Spyderco. They make great knives at an affordable price!! I like Spyderco knives alot.
    I would check out the Delica 4. It is a generation 4 model this year and has really been upgraded. The tip of the blade is much stronger and the handle now has skeletonized stainless steel liners which makes it much stronger. The handle is FRN which wears well and is very grippy. The hole in the blade is very easy to use with bare or gloved hands. The blade steel is VG10 which is very good. This knife will cost about $50.
    Here are some pics of mine.
    I hope this helps a bit. Good luck.

    Here is a link to the Spyderco page for this knife.

    If it is in stock there, New Graham Knives is an awesome place to deal with.

    I have used this eBay site before with great results also.

    I would give him either the Sypderco Delica or Endura with thw Wave feature. Both are real good knives and at a very fair price. I have started carrying my Endura Wave more than my Emerson CQC-7 these days as being one handed its real nice to have the blade open up when I draw the knife.

    +1 for Ken Onion Leek. Sharp as a razor, fast as an automatic, legal as a Barlow. Be careful when you're first learning to work it though, I skewered myself in the thumb the first time I was trying to show it off! I bought mine at Smoky Mtn. Knifeworks in Gatlinburg, TN. This place is a must see for anyone who likes edged weapons. Allow a couple of hours minimum and take your Mastercard!
