If you're searching for the perfect holiday, graduation or birthday gift for a young man in your life, quality blades are an excellent choice. No matter if he's a country guy or an urban businessman, having the right tools at hand is important for good grooming and safety.
A Nice Pocketknife
A well-crafted pocket knife will last for decades and is useful for everything from shaving down a ragged fingernail in a pinch to opening a box or cutting a length of rope. Having a pocket knife also reduces the temptation to try to use an inappropriate tool, such as a steak knife or box cutter, to do random cutting. This is a recipe for disaster and could lead to some nasty injuries.
A Good Straight Razor
While most young men are taught to shave using safety razors, there is a small and vocal subset of men who prefer to use a straight razor. Coupled with the right soap and aftershave, many men say that it cuts down on ingrown hairs and irritation. If the young man in your life wants to switch shaving methods, a well-made straight razor will last a lifetime. Don't forget a strop for sharpening to complete your gift.
A Set of Kitchen Knives
Sharp and well-balanced kitchen knives not only make cooking a lot easier, they cut down on the likelihood of accidents. Dull, poorly constructed knives can slip and cut fingers instead, as well as contributing to wrist strain over time. If your young man will be cooking for himself, quality kitchen knives are essential.
