CXXVI Scrimshaw Knife

Want a pocket knife that stands out from the wood- or stag-handled blades of your father, yet has a more traditional look that modern multi-tools? This CXXVI Scrimshaw Knife ($95) should do nicely. Hand etched in a small workshop in Maine, this seascape scrimshaw is laid into the bone with black india ink and sealed with a double dose of wax to protect the design and handle. Way nicer than the so-called scrimshaw junk being peddled at the beachside trinket store this summer.

  • Delegate Pocket Knife

    Need to carry a pocket knife but don't want to look like you're getting ready to field dress a wildebeest when you whip it out of your pocket? The Delegate Pocket Knife ($60) is a good choice. With black anodized aluminum bolsters, inlaid cocobolo wood scales, and a black oxide-coated stainless steel blade, the Delegate looks fittingly civilized, while the Fire Safe release mechanism and OutBurst opening assist makes sure the blade opens quickly when you need it and stays shut when you don't. If the black-on-black look just isn't for you, check out your fellow readers' suggestions for suitable alternatives.
