A unique gift found: Knife!

There’s a lot of things you can wrap and give as a gift. All common things go down to the things we commonly see. Some always consider the things that will suit the person best. But there is one unique gift that can be very valuable. It is an essential, a collection and a unique find at the same time. If you are thinking what I am thinking, yes you are correct, it’s a knife!

If you haven’t tried gifting one to a friend or family, they are definitely missing out a lot of great things from you. Let us guide you through some FACTS on why a knife would be a perfect gift for anyone.

P.S - even Santa can send you this ;-)

  1. IT’S NOT BAD LUCK - We know, you may have heard that gifting a knife is bad luck so let’s just get things straight, here and right now. Unlike what some superstitious belief say, gifting a good knife is not bad luck, a big NO.

    To explain where that came from, way back in the line, maybe a hundred years or so ago, people believe that giving a knife as a gift will metaphorically “cut - ties” the relationship. May it be between lovers or friends, marriage or family relationships. It can even be called a taboo gift at that time.

    Then a few decades or maybe centuries after, since there are some who can’t resist the beautiful qualities of knives, made a rule to give remedy to this belief. The receiver should keep everyone safe from bad luck by offering to pay a few pennies worth to the sender. That easily solved the mystery and everyone turned happy gifting and receiving knives.

  2. IT’S MULTI-PURPOSE - Knives are well known for its sharp characteristics and capacity to be used for different purposes. Making it a great deal for anyone may it be for a male or a female receiver. A quality knife can be used for camping, hunting, self-defense and for simply cutting things in half. It is light to carry and can be used anywhere. In general, knives are not just beneficial but also essential to everyday living. But it would be a great idea to find out what will be the main use for the knife you are going to purchase as a gift! Majority of knife stores will separate knives "by-purpose" for you you decide.

The value and effort are there so consider it a success!
