1. Bartech Pro by Barton Blades
This Barton Blade’s Bartech Pro Knife features a high-quality, stainless steel, half-serrated blade. It also includes a small thumb stud on the blade’s face for quick opening and closing. When the knife is closed, it has an all-over black appearance with a hint of silver. And, using the attached key chain, the knife can be carried by hand, on a keychain or in a pocket with ease.
2. Schrade Imperial
The Schrade Imperial is a classy pocket knife that also comes with a couple of extra additions. As well as the 1.8-inch main blade, this knife also includes two other flip-out blades, each with a nail pull for easy access. Furthermore, the handle comes in an attractive silver color, which makes this knife a gift that any family member of knife-wielding age is sure to love.
3. Gerber STL 2.0
Stylish and sleek, the Gerber STL 2.0 knife sports an all-black design. The STL in the name stands for “strong, thin and light,” and at only 1 oz. in weight, you already know part of that’s true. Additionally, the ultra-thin blade is ideal for precise and detailed work. Plus, there’s a cut out in the blade to make opening and closing this pocket knife a single-handed job. We think this beautiful blade would match a sharp and stylish black suit perfectly.

This is especially ideal for any unexpected “does anyone have a…?” moments. In addition, the included handheld flashlight boasts 5 different lighting options, high/medium/low along with strobe and S.O.S. It’s rated to IPX4 and has an anti-drop rating of up to 1m. This high-quality set is a great gift idea for adventurous partners or fathers.
