Can you think of anything more romantic than giving a brand new knife to your boyfriend or wife?
OK, so maybe a knife is not the traditional idea of a gift that screams “I love you,” but a knife does make a truly fantastic gift for the outdoor enthusiast or knife lover.
So we’ve assembled a list of five knives that say “I love you.” (Warning: Puns ahead.)
Cold Steel Brave Heart Dagger
Cut to the heart of your feelings with the Cold Steel Brave Heart Dagger. The knife, which is modeled after the boot knife used by Scotland’s highland warriors, is the perfect way to tell your significant other just how much you depend on them.
The Brave Heart Dagger is a backup knife that’s lightweight, multifunctional, and always there when you need it.
“I got you this purple Leek because I know it’s your favorite color” or “I bought you the rainbow Leek because you’re as beautiful as a rainbow.” Need we say more?
Parker River Classic
“I love you”
Give a knife engraved with that phrase and tell me it doesn’t evoke some emotions from the recipient.
The whole thing even comes in a handsome burlap gift bag and a penny (to learn about the tradition, read this), so you’re ready to give it the minute it arrives.
You can’t get any closer to a person’s heart throughout the day than with an ESEE Izula neck knife. The knife rests right on the chest and the gentle weight of it will always remind your loved one of you.
The Izula is another backup knife when everything goes wrong so you can also use the same “You can always depend on me when things get rough” logic when giving the Izula, which also comes with a survival kit.
“Ever since I met you, you’ve fixed up my life, just like this Victorinox Tinker will fix up yours.” The Swiss Army knife, with its iconic red color and shield symbol, already has a romantic motif that you can bolster when giving it as a gift.
This model is only 3.5 inches when closed and comes with 10 useful tools, such as two blades, screwdrivers, a bottle opener, tweezers, and more.
