When you do anything out in cold water — whether you're surfing, fishing, swimming, sailing, or working — you know how tough it can be to do anything with freezing hands. That's why the Finisterre Cold Water Surf Knife was built to be easy to handle, with a large pull loop, lanyard, and a wide handle that fits comfortably in any hand. Made from spanish oak and high-quality stainless steel, this durable, useful knife sports a range of tools including a fin key, a screwdriver, can and bottle openers, and a small blade. So the next time you hit the water, make sure you don't leave without one of these in your pocket.
They're not made to handle a crazy number of different tasks, but if you just want a simple, elegant cutting tool, it's hard to go wrong with one of these Workerman Kut Knives. These knives feature a simple shape, with a carbon steel Svörd blade that's hand forged in New Zealand and treated with a forced patina to give it a unique look and protect it from rust. They also feature hand-shaped handles made from various woods, acrylic spines in different designs, and an adjustable pivot screw so you can set the tension to match your preference.
It doesn't offer a kitchen sink of extra tools, but the Gerber 39 Series Pocket Knife is a great choice for those that simply want an elegant knife. Made in the USA, this stylish cutter sports a clean design, with a fine edge drop point 2.8-inch blade made from 420HC stainless steel that's good for a variety of tasks, as well as a nickel-plated zinc handle that provides just enough grip while harkening back to Gerber's early days of knife making.
