Introducing the perfect addition to any gentleman's collection - our custom-crafted pocket knife. Designed with functionality and style in mind, this knife is perfect for cutting fruit on your hike, opening packages, or even therapeutically carving a point onto a wooden stick.
The spine lock feature ensures that the blade stays securely in place while in use, keeping your fingers safe from harm. And when it's time to put it away, simply press the lock to fold the blade back into its handle.

Gentlemans Pocket Knife FAQ’s
Pocket Knife FAQs
Q: What oil do you recommend for my pocket knife?
A: We recommend using mineral oil on the pivots and sliding parts of your pocket knife. Mineral oils are food safe and won't contaminate the food you're cutting. To protect your blade from surface corrosion when not in use for extended periods, we recommend using a honing oil. Avoid oils that contain additives not intended for human consumption and stick with natural mineral oils specifically made for knife blades.
Q: How should I clean my pocket knife?
A: The easiest way to clean your pocket knife is to wipe it immediately after use. Use a rag, baby wipe, banana leaf, or tissue to remove any food remnants. Rinse and wash the blade with mild soap as soon as possible. If your knife has a wooden handle, avoid using the dishwasher as the alkaline soaps will remove the oil in the pivots. We recommend hand washing all pocket knives. Avoid leaving food remnants on the blade, as this can cause corrosion. Always rinse and dry the blade before folding it back into place.
Q: What's the best way to remove sand from my pocket knife?
A: The worst thing you can do to your pocket knife is to drop it into beach sand. Sand sticks to the oiled parts of the knife and can make the knife feel gritty. Rinse and fold the blade back and forth to remove most of the sand, then blow out the knife with compressed air or take it apart to remove the remaining sand. If you use your knife for saltwater fishing, clean it after each trip as sea spray is very corrosive to pocket knives.
Q: Are coated or uncoated knife blades better?
A: Knife steels can be coated with tool steel coatings to prevent corrosion and increase wearability. Some coatings, like Titanium Coatings (AlTin) and Diamond Like Carbon Coatings (DLC), are incredibly hard and can't be scratched off even with intense use. Black oxide or blackening can also be used on ferrous and stainless blades. This coating creates a controlled rust coating that is then sealed with oil or wax to prevent further corrosion. Uncoated blade steels are fine for everyday use. Just because a blade steel shows some surface corrosion doesn't mean it's a bad steel.
Q: Will all knife blade steels rust?
A: All blade steels will rust to varying degrees if not cared for properly. Most of the time, this is just light surface corrosion that can be easily cleaned off with iron wool. Some manufacturers may use 304 or 316 Grade Marine Stainless Steel, but these steels can't be heat treated and are softer in comparison to other blade steels. Coated blade steels can be more expensive, but may be worth it for highly corrosive situations like fishing knives. Keep in mind that the sharpened exposed edge of a coated blade will still be susceptible to surface corrosion.
Q: What is the difference between a gentlemans pocket knife and a regular pocket knife?
A: A gentlemans pocket knife is typically smaller in size, with a more refined and elegant design. It is often used for more delicate tasks such as opening letters and packages, rather than heavy-duty cutting and chopping. The handle materials are often more upscale such as wood, bone, or mother of pearl. Gentlemen's pocket knives are also often more decorative, with intricate engravings or inlaid designs.
Q: Can a gentlemans pocket knife be used for hunting and camping?
A: While a gentlemans pocket knife may not be as heavy-duty as a traditional hunting or camping knife, it can still be used for light outdoor tasks such as cutting rope or opening cans. However, it is not recommended for heavy-duty tasks such as skinning or chopping wood, as the blade may not be strong enough.
Q: What types of blade steel are used in gentlemans pocket knives?
A: The most common types of blade steel used in gentlemans pocket knives are stainless steel, high carbon steel, and Damascus steel. Stainless steel is a low-maintenance option that is resistant to rust and corrosion, while high carbon steel is harder and holds an edge longer, but requires more maintenance to prevent rust. Damascus steel is a unique patterned steel that is created by layering different types of steel, and is known for its beauty and strength.
Q: Can I personalize my gentlemans pocket knife?
A: Yes, at LilyCraft we engrave or personalize a gentlemans pocket knife with a name or message. This makes the knife a unique and special gift for a loved one or a way to make the knife even more special to you. We dont charge any extra for engraving your knife and wooden gift box.
Q: How should I care for my gentlemans pocket knife?
A: Proper care and maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity of your gentlemans pocket knife. After use, wipe the blade down with a soft cloth to remove any debris and apply a light coat of oil to protect the blade from rust and corrosion. Store the knife in a dry, cool place such as its original wooden gift box, and avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures or moisture. If the knife has a stabalised wood handle, which is completely waterproof and low maintenance.
