Gift for a "guy's guy" from Paris

My husband is a "guy's guy"---from Michigan, loves to golf--but doesn't like France or Europe all that much. Any suggestions for a gift from Paris? He doesn't like cologne or jewelry. Won't wear logo t-shirts. My best guess is a framed print or maybe a knife set? I want to spend about 100-200 euros or so?

Laguiloe knives are considered some of the best. They have excellentpocket knives. There is a shop on the right bank. Can't remember the address but it is near one of the Wallace fountains

Try the basement at BHV (opposite the Hotel de Ville): hardware/DIY heaven. Even if you ignore power tools and things that need to be connected to metric threads and so on, there might be something suitable there - maybe in the section for house and garage signs and pictograms?

If you are traveling carryon only, you won't be able to get the knife set on the plane. If he loves to golf, why not see what the French make with respect to golf stuff? They do play it. . Golf gloves? (I don't play, so I'm just guessing.)
