Man Law Question

A real good friend is turning 36 in a few weeks. Good guy, former marine, works 60 hrs a week to give his wife & 2 young daughters everything he can give them. Paramedic, I was his FTO and then partner for a few years. He's a straight OGer, all the way.

So his wife is throwing a bash for him, but I won't be able to be there (as it stands.... but I'm workin on it).

I bought him a set of decent field knives for hunting, nicer than he'd ever spend in himself. I was thinking of having them engraved with something.

Question 1) Is that gay?
Question 2) If its not gay, I am.wide open to suggestions. A cool saying, or his initials, or the date, or.....???


OG, I bow to your wisdom.

Not gay as long as you don't put some shitty saying or injoke. Initials only Phone Post 3.0

Not gay, but I personally would rather not have any engraving on my knives. Phone Post 3.0

Engrave:

U MY BFF NOW?

Maybe his last name so someday he can pass them down to his son/kids whatever Phone Post 3.0

It would only be gay if you had this engraved:

"To remind you of the last time I gave you a hard 10 inches."

Serious answer, since you guys were Paramedics together, perhaps the symbol that Paramedics use, e.g., Star of Life.

Personally, I don't like having any incriminating evidence on any of my blades, e.g., initials or names, since you never know when and how you'll use it/have to dispose of it.

By the way, a bit of superstition, but request a penny for the knives, so that the gift doesn't "sever" the friendship.

I agree with either something like his surname or no engraving. Phone Post 3.0

He's got a cool last name, and that's what everybody call him. Phone Post 3.0
