Hi everyone...This is my first post here but I’ve been lurking for a while and couldn’t think of a better place to ask this question. So my best friend is getting married and he wants to get the groomsmen a nice knife as a gift. He’s looking for something all around including dressing it up. I recommended the SpydieChef. I think it fits that bill pretty decent but wanted you guys’ input. Let me know what you think about my choice or if you have a better idea. Thanks and happy to be here!
Might be poor form to mention another knife company here, and Spyderco is my all-around favorite, but for this very specific situation it’s worth noting the Benchmade’s online custom shop tool will allow you to get something engraved on every knife blade. For instance the couple’s names and the date of the wedding. That’s the first thing that came to my mind when I read the OP.
Maybe there are websites that would do aftermarket engraving on a Spyderco for a reasonable price, I’m not positive. And to be fair the Benchmade custom shop can get real expensive real quick.
For gent-carry spydercos, the Mantra 2 and the Kapara both come to mind. The Kapara might make a better gift for someone who isn’t a knife nerd, as the M4 on the Mantra 2 isn’t stainless.
