The 39 Series Sheath Folder from Gerber Gear is an elegantly streamlined knife that’s as reliably tough as it is nice to look at. “A good knife is obviously a very practical item,” according to Wiese, “and the sheath is actually useful. It keeps it clean.”

Made in Portland, Oregon with Gerber’s lifetime warranty, it has a fine-edge, 3-inch drop point stainless steel blade, and a sleek, nickel-plated zinc handle. With a nice heft and feel at just over 6 ounces, its dual thumb studs make for easy one-hand opening and the tight-locking blade keeps it sure for any task. A very practical item indeed — and it connects you with the Gerber heritage of fine blades that goes back to 1939. [$144; huckberry.com]
