(StatePoint) Does Dad love the great outdoors? Show you care this Father’s Day by helping him gear up for upcoming adventures.
There are many different gift options for outdoor dads, whether he’s a hiker, angler or grill master.
Camping and hiking
Help Dad avoid dull blades far away from home with a portable sharpener. Those from Smith’s Consumer Products are lightweight, compact and durable. They feature a coarse slot to give a new, sharp edge on dull or damaged blades, and a fine slot for regular edge maintenance, as well as a fold-out, tapered diamond rod to sharpen serrations. The brand’s new model, the Pocket Pal X2 Sharpener and Outdoors Tool, helps campers pack light, as it also features several outdoor essentials in its compact frame — a fire starter, compass, LED light and signal whistle.
“It’s a must-have tool for backpackers, hikers, campers and outdoor sports enthusiasts,” says Russell Cowen, marketing manager for Sporting Goods and Hardware at Smith’s Consumer Products.
This tool is available in the sporting goods department of your local Walmart store, as well as online at Walmart.com.
Ensure Dad’s next fishing trip is smooth sailing. A combination tool, such as the JIFF-FISH Knife Sharpener and Fishing Tool, will help him keep a sharp edge on his fillet knife, pocket knife and hooks, as well as weigh and measure his catch. It features preset carbide blades for consistent knife sharpening results every time, as well multiple hook sharpening grooves, a weight scale, writing pen, and retractable measuring tape.
When it comes to grilling, Dad may have all the basics, but innovative tools can improve his grilling game significantly. For example, Fire Wire is a flexible skewer that holds twice as much as traditional skewers. And because they remain cool to the touch, they can be turned or removed from the grill without other tools.
They even allow you to marinate foods right on the wire inside a plastic bag or bowl, without having to handle them numerous times. To learn more, visit FireWireGrilling.com.
Whether Dad is catching dinner, grilling it, or just getting away from it all, Father’s Day is the perfect time to make sure he’s well-prepared for the task.
