Is that an EDC combo? I love my Kershaw but it is this one. I looked into the Leek but ended up with their CQC model when I saw it has the Emerson wave feature. Still eyeing the Leek and Shuffle models. Funny enough Kershaw is made by KAI which are some of my favorite DE blades.
I am unfamiliar with knife laws in NZ, but something like a Kershaw emerson or Rat 1 are both pretty affordable and good all around knives.
For $23.95 you can have this. It's my current EDC. Holds an edge...
Kershaw for the money can't be beat. It's in my pocket now. Spydercos are great too...
20 dollars [link]
My best beater knife
Emerson/Kershaw 6034 CQC-6K
Like this one? It looks good
Don't get that. If you want to wow him, definately get something special, like a Spyderco Delica Wave
The wave, patented by Emerson (famous high end brand), allows knives to be deployed the moment out of the pocket by itself. See if he owns one already, if not, that is a great choice.
Any of the Kershaw X Emerson CQC series is also a great choice, with the same wave feature. I always get these as gifts for people, both knife nut and non-nut. They always seem to be wowed by the wave feature. Its just my go-to for a knife gift.
I love my kershaw emerson 6k and with only a couple dollars more and the extra giftcard you can get yourself a great sharpening system
Well I was going to say Skyline when I saw the title. But having read that, Kershaw Emerson CQC-6K? Or maybe the Injection? Though both have rather vanilla blade shapes. Possibly try someting different and get an Opinel #8? And looks thru here, it's the sub's list of recommendations and covers most of the stuff in a given range.
My personal preferance is towards the 6K in that series.
A couple thoughts:
A lifetime membership to NESA wouldn't be a bad idea - not cheap, but a meaningful gift.
Northwest Territorial Mint makes Eagle Scout Coins - I'm not personally into them, but many people are.
A walking staff with an eagle medallion might be a cool gift.
A really nice compass (you know, "to guide your way" etc, etc.) could be meaningful and useful.
You could get him a cool knife (I recently purchased this one) and have it engraved in some meaningful way. I'm personally more into the Spyderco line of knives, but the Kershaw is more cost-effective.
Also know that a gift is not expected - if you're invited to his Court of Honor, the only thing requested is your presence.
