If you guys have any recommendations for a folding hunting knife - I have a young man, whom I coached in baseball for years, that just received his Eagle Scout. I would like to get him a folding hunting knife on which I will have his initials engraved (preferably on the handle). I would like to keep the cost below $150 on the knife.

Any thoughts?

If it has to be a folder this might be tough. If not find a local knife maker in your area to make him a custom knife. Those can get to be a lot more expensive than $150 but I’d think that could also be a do able budget.

Cold Steel makes some higher end USA made folding knives.

I like the Alaskan guide knives from cabelas. Wood handle, keeps a great edge. Good luck and that’s a great thing you’re doing.

I am a huge fan of the buck vantage series, especially the 347 which is s30v steel. Very sleek for edc use. The only place I’ve seen offer knife engraving was sportsman’s guide, but I’d bet Buck custom shop will meet your needs. There are a few different styles, one has rosewood inlay. If this is a no, next place I’d look is benchmade.

**this knife is also offered as cabelas ak guide gear... which are top notch, very hard to beat.

I believe Buck offers engraving services. A model 500 'Duke' would be nice.

Buck 110 Custom Shop with Antler Scales and Drop Point S30V blade, can get the engraving as well. A 110 is hard to beat for a hunting heirloom type knife.

Look at an Uncle Henry "Bear Paw" lock back. I've been toting one since 1978 and it still hold an razor sharp edge.

This would be a good choice. Eagle Scout is a significant achievement, tell that young man well done!

Not as fancy as a lot of those others but I bought a Case Trapper for my dad and had his initials engraved at the local jewelry store. I got the yellow handle just to give it a classic feel.

They have a lot of options these days.

You can't beat a buck 110 folder,easy to sharpen,and if he doesn't loose it,it will last longer than he will.

Another vote for the Buck 110 folder. You can get it custom and be way under budget.

A Cold steel AD 10 is the best for the money : you can find it below 150$ and for that price you get a thick sv35 steel razor sharp , a locking mechanism bomb proof (tri ad lock) and a comfortable g10 handle strong steel pocket clip that doesn’t t slip etc... That beast can last a lifetime.

Hard to beat a Buck 110.

Spyderco Native with S110V steel. It's more of a daily carry folder, and a little out of your budget, but he'll love it and never have to buy another pocket knife again, if he doesn't lose it.

Another vote for the Buck 110. It's an American classic, like Scouting (used to be, before wokeness infected it).

I found a local custom knife maker in my state and had my son's initials engraved on the handle for his 16th Birthday. It is very nice and will last his lifetime provided it doesn't get lost. Kudos to you for doing that for your young friend!! It was a bit more expensive than what you listed but you have very good suggestions above.

I agree the 110 is a timeless classic, but so are most casexx. It’s always cool to find an old one and try age it. Will there be that much curiosity in 50yrs? Let’s hope so!

I think whatever knife you give will make the point. It's the thought of the gift which will carry the meaning, not the brand. All knives mentioned are good quality blades, pick what you like and run with it.

Thank you all for the suggestions. I got some sorting to do to figure out what might serve him best.

I have given all my kids a Buck 110. It is the first knife I ever had and I still use it today 47yrs later. It is amazing to see the difference in the blades from years of sharpening.
