The best pocket knife in the imported category, for 2016 is the Dako Shadow Pocket Knife 7915.
What impresses me about this knife is the unique design and advanced engineering. The knife is light as a feather, even though it is made entirely of steel. How did they do that?
One reason is having the same piece of steel do 2 jobs. The back handle also serves as the locking mechanism.
The other reason is–why cover the whole blade with a front handle, if all you need to cover is the edge of the blade? So they designed the front handle to do just that.
The size is not small. It’s a medium sized 3 1/2″ knife that you will be happy to make your “every day carry” (EDC). It opens easily with the thumb stud on the blade. Make 48 of your customers happy by giving them this knife with your company logo laser engraved on the blade. Your logo is visible even when the knife is closed.
Personalized Pocket Knives with your company logo are used as business gifts every day. Here are 4 misconceptions about this useful gifting idea:
Pocket Knives are for men only. False. Many women welcome a promotional pocket knife as a thoughtful gift. They like to keep them in their purse for emergencies like cutting string and opening boxes.
Pocket Knives are just weapons. False. They are as much a weapon as baseball bats. They have many useful peaceful purposes. Like opening blister-sealed packages, cutting rope, cardboard, and cutting things in projects involving your car, home, boat, and garage.
Business gifts should not have sharp edges. False. This is based on an old superstition, like opening an umbrella in a house, and rocking an empty rocking chair. Most people now are careful enough to safely handle a sharp pocket knife.
Pocket Knives cannot be taken on airplanes. False. The TSA allows you to pack pocket knives in your luggage and check it at the counter. You just can’t take them into the passenger cabin of the aircraft. The TSA was going to allow small pocket knives on board in 2015, but they reversed their ruling due to remarks from the airlines personnel.
So keep on giving quality pocket knives to your best customers. They will appreciate your generosity!

Every blade comes pre-sharpened, and stays sharp longer than other knife blades.

Are Gerber Pocket Knives popular with the work force? ANSWER: Yes. Everyone has heard of the Gerber brand of quality company logo knives.

Where do new and unique pocket knife designs come from? Companies like Buck, Kershaw, CRKT, Gerber, Kutmaster, and Dako are coming up with new designs every year. They present them at trade shows, which I go to, as often as I can.
This is a scene from last week’s TOM Show in Cleveland Ohio. This is where suppliers of promotional products show their new imprinted products and Engraved Pocket Knives that have just been developed. My main man for Buck, Leatherman, Gerber and Kershaw is Paul Rizzo. His partner, Kent Getsee owns the company Preferred Lines Marketing. They represent Rainkist Umbrellas, Pentel Imprint, Bay State, Compass Industries, Devara and Tervis at the trade shows. Shown in this picture is a new knife by Dako that is not yet on my website. Paul is also wearing the new engraved Leatherman Tread.
