Every gentleman needs a good knife. It’s a fact of life, and implicit truth. In every man’s everyday carry there should be a knife for whatever a man may come across in the day. Knives are not a tool of a bygone era, an obsolete weapon for fighting. Knives are an everyday necessity. Granted, you may not need one every single day, but when you need one, you’ll wish you had one. And a gentleman doesn’t need a knife for fighting or skinning animals--though you could--but a gentleman needs a knife for the common problems that occur all around us, all throughout our lives--from cutting open boxes to slicing the length of an envelope to snapping a rope to repairing something around the office.
There is something primal about a knife, something instinctive and intuitive. It goes back to our ancient ancestors, knapping flint blades to cut meat from bone. Yet it remains, a knife in our pocket as part of our everyday carry reflects that paleolithic man who hunted wild game for food and survival. It is in our blood, in our DNA. When we look into the blade of that knife the reflection we see back is the hotblooded ancestor who lived and died on their skill with the blade. Make no mistake, these are manly knives for sale.
Every knife here at Gentlemens.com is a finely curated tool for cutting, but also a symbol of that ancient man we used to be and the gentleman we aim to become. A gentleman’s folding knife that slips easily into the pocket or clips neatly on the belt adds confidence to the man who carries it, knowing that they can handle any situation that comes up during the day. It makes you prepared, and being prepared is always a sign of a gentleman.
The way the knife feels in your hand--the heft, the curve of the handle, the way that the blade feels like an extension of the arm--is an intimate portrait of who we are deep down inside. Some of these blades are spring assisted, others automatic, but every one is ready to open with a flick of the wrist, a tool, a problem solver, a ready mechanism to alleviate some problem.
Knives--Kershaw, Spyderco, Zero Tolerance, Zippo--these are knives of world renown, known for their sharpness, their utility, their capability for doing their job under pressure. A good blade is a blade that doesn’t need thought, and these are those blades: ready when you need them, ready for anything you can throw in their way.
So peruse the knives in our collection. Select the one that is right for you and for your everyday carry needs--or a special knife that is used for a specific purpose. Each and every one has been tested and tried, and is trusted to be effective and durable. For the right hand or left, these folding knives collapse into pocket size ready for your daily responsibilities--or the hunt.
A gentleman’s folding knife is a sign to others, a status symbol. It’s a sign that you can be relied on, that you’re always there when there’s a problem to solve, a challenge to tackle. It’s there when you need it, then folds up and disappears when you get back to your day--but you know that you’ve achieved something; you’ve been a help to someone in need.
Manly knives. Gentlemanly knives. They’re two sides of the same coin.
