    need more specifics, i.e. what is he going to use it for, what kind of knife did he previously have, etc.

    We really ought to make a sticky about knives.

    Any specific ideas on what kind of knife? folding or fixed blade? utility or more fancy? serrated, combo or plain edge? If you want a folding knife you could do a lot worse than a benchmade.

    Second a benchmade.

    I dont know how much its going for now, but I got my 940 for $140 2 years ago. I still carry it with me, and looks pretty damn new.

    folding. multitasker. wouldn't be bad if you could realistically use it for defense (we won't get in to that arguement, we'll just say he knows how)

    probably a combo on the blade type. something he could use in a pinch to pry that won't break on him.

    both come in combo edges, both around the $100 mark.
    Both are great knives that have good quality steel (D2 in the BM and s30V in the military) should hold a good edge for quite some time before needing a re-sharpening. Sizable though... about 4" blade length.

    If you're dad a little more a traditionalist, and not that "tacticool" he might be more comfortable with a good ol' Buck 110. Classic design.

    Check out the kershaw ken onion series knives. I have one of the Leeks and i like mine allot. all of them have the option for the combo edge, and the ken onion series are all spring assist openers which are pretty cool.

    We need to just create a sticky thread for knives rather than using a pre-existing one.

    All the ideas above are good, but I am going to have to come in and sackride Kershaw. I have a blur, a blackout, whirlwind, and responder.

    I carry my blur on my daily and I love this knife. I bought the plain blade because I have never found much of a use for a serration and I have had no problems cutting anything I Have yet to need. The clip is also reversable so you can draw it in a better position to open it. I have had it for about 6 months now and I haven't needed to sharpen it. Still cuts through anything like butter.

    so from everything i've read, the serrations are useless.

    I think it's more of a personal preferance than anything. As long as I have a knife that's sharp, I've never needed a serration.

    Not if you need to cut something like rope or tie wraps or heavy cloth, then it comes in real handy for starting the cut.

    I like having a combo blade, even though I don't use it that often, it is handy to cut rope and things of that nature.
