Favorite “Dressy” Knives for the Holidays

The holidays are here, which probably means you have work parties, family gatherings, and other festive activities coming up quick. Some of these events require fancier attire, and for a knife enthusiast, that brings one serious question to mind: what knife will I bring with me?
If you are dressing up for any holiday events in the coming weeks, you’ll want a classy blade to accompany you. Here are some of our favorite dressy knives here at Blade HQ.
What knife do you carry when you have to dress up?

Benchmade 943

The 943 is a stellar blade, and it has a titanium blue spacer, which complements the black handle really well and makes it look really sleek.
Mcusta Tanbo Damascus Knife
Mcusta knives have a lot of class, and a lot of the smaller Mcusta knives don’t have a pocket clip. This can be a bonus if you don’t want to have a pocket clip hanging out of your pocket.
Boker Elegance
Boker Elegance knives are also a classy option.
Mcusta Folding Knives
Here’s another sweet Mcusta blade.
Chris Reeve Mnandi chris-reeve-mnandi-honduran-rosewood-inlay
There’s just something fancy about wood inlays. The Mnandi is an excellent example of a beautiful knife with wood inlays.
Al Mar Hawk Classic Gentleman’s Pocket Knifeal-mar-knives-am1002bm
These gentleman’s folders are great because they have no pocket clip, utilize nice materials, and don’t have any hard edges.
Protech Godfather

The Protech Godfather is another excellent choice, and there are a lot of different variations to choose from.
Spyderco Centofante C155
The blue handle along with the silver fiber insert are a really nice touch to this Spyderco.
CRKT Ripple
The Ripple is a Ken Onion and CRKT design, and it is unique, elegant, and awesome in general.
Al Mar Falcon
You really can’t go wrong with a gentleman’s folder. Here’s another Al Mar option for you.
Boker Exskelibur
This Boker is excellent, and a great option if you don’t want to spend too much money.
Spyderco Chaparral
Get the Chaparral in titanium or carbon fiber; both are fit for special occasions.
Chris Reeve Sebenza w/ Carbon Fiber Inlay (Blade HQ Exclusive)
There’s nothing like a Sebenza with a little Blade HQ flavor!
