I had the same thought but ended up getting them all an engraved Leatherman multi-tool. Most use them everyday too.

Six years ago I did the same thing. This is the one I picked, but I got it at a local Jewelry store and they cut the price (105.00 if my memory is right) since I needed seven of them. I only regret I didn't get one for myself as well! http://www.swissknivesexpress.com/swisarclassi.html
BTW congrats on getting married.

I sure like my Kershaw Speedsafe for EDC. Mine is the laminated blade model and is about $60 new. The other side has a nice blank area on the body of the knife that could be engraved. Good Luck.

In our family we have several Benchmade Griptilians, both large and Mini style, all get used daily not just carried. Right now there are some deals on plain Grip Mini models for about $66. however, on the BM website you can order the Mini in colors of choice, blade type and other personal selections to include engraving of choice. Here is mine, no engraving but with D2 steel and tan grip.

Make some custom Buck 110s on their website. They look amazing, but can be somewhat on the heavy side.

Any Benchmade or any metal Spyderco, but the Leatherman (Wave) is not a bad idea either...

These are beautiful, heavy duty, fast. I've carried one for years. EDC. Easy because they are thin. Your friends will remember you for this one!

I have one brother and I'm 9 years older. So as you can imagine I half raised him and he means the world to me. He's 31 now and I could slap that wife of his, but I love him. LOL!

When he got married he bought us Swiss Army knives. They were the $50 range versions, but I've cherished it and carried it for 5 years now.

Been best man 3 times, and grooms man once. All 4 times we got bottles of tequila, which were consumed at the wedding. Along with that, one of the guys gave us a beer glass with our name and soccer jersey # engraved.

I received a nice Spyderco for one groomsmen gift, and a handmade knife for another (local knifemaker). Love them both. I gave firearms, but that's just how I roll...

With that budget you're set! I would say go with a gentlemen folder with smaller blade to facilitate EDC. For the value I would say a Delicate or maybe a Mel Pardue Axis lock setup from Benchmade. CRKT had some nice 'Tighe' pieces as well.

I agree that a good Leatherman rocks and likely be used for a lifetime!
