Having a gift engraved is an ideal way to add a personal touch. With the numerous types of knives on the market and the myriad messages you can have engraved, you can find a vast number of possibilities for knife gifts. Best of all, having a knife engraved as a gift is simple.
What to engrave on the knife is entirely up to your creativity. Obviously, having a name engraved can make the knife personal, but you have other options too. You can select an engraving based on the type of knife. For example, if you have a cooking knife, you can have your friend's favourite cooking quote engraved --- something to the effect of, "Never trust a skinny chef," for example. The same goes for the outdoors; have a wilderness quote, maybe from Henry David Thoreau, engraved on a hunting knife, for example.
Anyone who cooks likes to feel at home in the kitchen. An engraved knife will play a role in making the recipient feel as if he is in his own personal kitchen, working with hid very own personal equipment. A nice gift for kitchen knives could also be a set of knives with the gift recipient's initials engraved.
Outdoor knives are personal even without an engraving. When a person ventures into the woods, a knife is a lifeline. The best examples of these types of knives include pocket knives and Swiss army knives. You can make these tools even more personal with an engraving to give the recipient a sense of home and comfort when in the wild with her knife.
Throwing knives are a bit more rare but, when engraved, can make a welcomed gift. Knife throwers always want to leave their mark; what better way than personalised throwing knives? A personalised set of throwing knives makes an ideal gift for anybody interested in the sport.
