No matter who you’re shopping for this holiday season, we have you covered. For our Stocking Stuffers series, our writers and editors weigh in on the best gifts under $50 to give this year.

Gear Aid Buri Utility Knife

In the heat of adventure, an ordinary pocketknife simply won’t do. They break easily and perform only basic tasks. But not the Buri Utility Knife. It packs the versatility and disaster-ready power of a burly bushcraft blade but in compact form. Its titanium-coated, full-tang blade is both straight and serrated, making it much more capable than most pocketknives; it also has a bottle opener, glass breaker and lanyard hole integrated into the handle. With its multiple attachment points, you can carry the Buri however you like — on your waist, on your pack, around your neck and more.
