    What are the best gift knives this year? You know, stocking stuffers and etc. that are cheap enough to give everyone?

    I just saw that Al Mar has a keyring knife made of D2 and it is around $15. Cold Steel has the Super Edge for about $18.

    What else is there?

    A SAK Classic is always a good choice (although I prefer the Rambler, which can be a bit more), and Opinel makes all sorts of good options. The No.8 in stainless is a solid choice. Both of those should be under $20.

    I got my dad and brother Giant Mouse knives, great EDC for people that aren't big knife people but appreciate a good cutting tool.

    My youngest son and son in law are getting SAK Spartans and my middle son is getting a Recruit. Wife and Daughter already have Super Tinkers.

    A 2-3 layers SAK or a Delemont SAK with locking blade is always a good gift.

    SAK classics are always good stocking stuffers. Everyone appreciates it, and the one from last year is usually either broken or lost.

    I always think that the knives I have for sale are the ones that are best for gifts. :D

    If you want low priced knives for gifts- There are the Spyderco knives in the Tenacious line and the Byrd line, Kershaw has a lot of good choices including the Skyline, Kabar makes I think several different sizes of the Dozier folder.

    Buck 110 and 112 slim select. Inexpensive, usa made with a forever warranty. Several different colors last I checked. Very solid lightweight knives. Last Christmas I gave away a half dozen or more.

    Another vote for a SAK Spartan or Recruit.

    Pioneer or Cadet if you want to go up class a little bit.

    I think a SAK model chosen for the person's needs wins hands down.
    My 80 year old mother saw a small SAK I was carrying and asked if she could have it......I gave to her and she kept in her purse.

    SAKs and Civivis. Both great values. Or Lightning Otfs for fun.
