Father's Day Gift Giving Made Easy

Father's Day gift buying can be (and often is) a stressful process, as it can be seemingly impossible to find a Father's Day gift that will be appreciated and used, especially when you're shopping for a dad who seems to have it all. Our Father's Day Gift Guide is here to help.

Our Favorite Father's Day Gifts for 2024

1. For the Dad Who Fishes

New this year is the Fishing Lures Fisherman Swiss Army Knife, which is available exclusively at Swiss Knife Shop. This colorful Fisherman Swiss Army Knife is made in Switzerland by Victorinox, makers of the original Swiss Army Knife. The colorful handle pattern, featuring a variety of fishing lures, was designed here at Swiss Knife Shop.

The Fisherman Swiss Army Knife has 18 functions, including everyday-carry favorites like the legendary Victorinox blade, scissors and screwdrivers. It is also a must-have on any fishing expedition, with a fish scaler, ruler, hook disgorger and bottle opener (for mid-day refreshments).

2. For the Dad Who Camps

Opinel No.08 Traditional Carbon Steel Folding Knife with Beech Handle for Camp Food Prep

New to Swiss Knife Shop this year, the Opinel line of knives is made in the French Alps and is very reasonably priced. The most popular in the line is the Opinel No.08 Folding Knife with a Carbon Steel Blade. The blade of this all-purpose knife locks securely in place both open while in use and closed for storage. At 7.6-inches when open, it is a great size for camping and backpacking. It's large enough to tackle everything from setting up camp to campfire cooking.

> Shop Opinel Knives and Picnic Kits

To make the Opinel No.08 even more versatile, add the Opinel Picnic Plus Accessories Set, which transforms your simple knife into a knife, fork and spoon all in one compact, backpack-friendly piece that's conveniently wrapped up in a reusable napkin.

Another camping favorite is the Leatherman Signal, a 19-tool multi-tool designed specifically for the great outdoors, with everything from a wood saw to a safety whistle and a firestarting ferrocerium rod.

3. For the Dad Who Hunts

The Buck Paklite line of knives is new this year. This collection of fixed blade knives ranges from the small, compact Paklite 630 with a 2.75 inch blade to the Paklite 636 Processor, which has a 5.75-inch blade designed for game processing and camp cooking.

Every Paklite handle was created with the hunter in mind. They are skeletal, but ergonomic and have removable panels to make the knives easy to clean.

Paklite knives are made in the USA.

4. For the Dad Who Collects Swiss Army Knives

Victorinox Terra Brown Alox Swiss Army Knives at Swiss Knife Shop

This year's limited edition Alox drop is Terra Brown, a rich earthy brown. Every year, Victorinox releases a new color of Alox handles on three knife models, and the color is available for one year only. These beautiful collector's items come in a commemorative cardboard box that makes a great gift presentation.

This year's models include the bestselling Classic SD keychain knife, the Pioneer X, and the Evoke locking blade knife.

As always, these knives are made in Ibach, Switzerland.

5. For the Dad Who Hikes and Likes to Keep it Light

The Leatherman Skeletool CX was designed to keep it light. Despite packing in 7 functions from a strong blade to a carabiner and the ever-popular Leatherman pliers, the Skeletool CX weighs in at just 5 ounces.

New this year is the Skeletool CX in four bold new colors to match Dad's personality.

All Leatherman Tools are made in the USA.

6. For the Dad Who Loves Classic Cars

The Boker 1969 Camero Z28 Damast Folding Knife is a knife with a story. This beautiful limited edition piece is a piece of history Dad can carry with him. The hand-forged Damascus blade is made from parts of the upper A-arm of the Z28 Cmaro, and the aluminum handles are made with lines and details inspired by this famous muscle car.

This collector's item is made in Germany.

7. For the Dad Who Loves Tradition

Bear and Son Knives have been made in Jacksonville, Alabama since the 1990's and the blades are forged from American steel. These folding knives are made in the tradition of folders that have been carried by fathers for centuries, and are available in a variety of handle materials and blade shapes to suit your dad's preferences for an everyday carry.

8. For the Dad Who's a Veteran

Case Knives has been crafting high-quality folding knives since its founding in 1889 when the Case brothers began selling their hand-made knives from the back of a truck in Upstate New York. 

Case now has a collection of knives honoring branches of the US military. Each one is officially licensed and features insignias or images from a branch of the military. 

These knives, and Case's US flag knives, are a wonderful way to pay tribute to Dad's service, especially if you add custom engraving.

Make it Personal with Custom Engraving

Many of the gifts in this guide (and almost anything in our store) can also be personalized with custom engraving, so Dad will never forget who gave him his new favorite gift and your position as the favorite will be forever remembered.

Engraving options are endless, but some of our favorites are:

  • A Meaningful Date - Consider the current year, your father's birthday, the date he became a father or a special anniversary

  • Names or Initials - Add his name initials, or yours, or a favorite nickname

  • A Special Message - Depending on how much room your gift has for engraving, you can add a message like "Best Dad," #1 Dad" or "Dad, Est. 2024". You can also "sign" your gift with a "Love, Dan".

Many of the gifts have multiple spots for personal engraving (front and back, or handle and blade), so you can mix and match the options above, or add something personal to just you and your father. 

To add engraving to your gift, click the "Personalize" button on the product page and add your unique text.
