2019 graduationMay is the start of 2019 graduation season, and there’s no better time to get a traditional pocketknife for the 2019 graduate in your life. Often passed down from father to son, a traditional pocketknife is a great way to honor the past while celebrating the present. Slipjoint folders are not only trendy, they’re good knives that make excellent additions to any knife collection. With the addition of a coin to keep another old tradition alive, they make fantastic gifts.

The Case 2019 Graduate Doctor’s Knife has a white smooth bone handle with a diploma etched on the front handle. Overlaying that etch are the words “Class of 2019” next to “Graduate”. You can get this knife for about $60.

The easily accessed nail nick opens the single 3” Tru-Sharp Surgical Steel spear point blade. The mirror polish is literally perfect. The opening is smooth and easy. It also has pins and brass liners. The squared bolsters are nickel silver.
