Looking for recommendations on a knife for a 12 year old. I'm thinking of a Case Trapper with a nice leather sheath. Anything else you fellas would recommend?

What would it be used for? What kind of money are you interested in spending?

Iíd say less than $50. Itís his first knife and he likes to fish. So just looking for a good all around knife he can carry with him while outdoors and use.

Buck 110 seems a reasonable choice.

Thanks. I was browsing through Blade HQ site and they have lots of good deals on folders. Was thinking of maybe a nice flipper but nut sure if that is a good idea for a first knife due to not a whole lot of time handling knifes.

Get him something easy to sharpen. Iím not usually a big fan of 420 steel, but itís highly rust resistant and takes an edge quickly with common tools.

One knife i'd recommend for a young man would be any of the Victorinox hunters/hikers/scout/farmer type knives.
