Supply Chain Issues Have Little Effect on Engraved Leatherman Tools

Great news! Engraved Leatherman Tools aren’t imported from China. They are made in the USA. Some parts are made overseas, but the final assembly is always done in Oregon at the Leatherman factory.

The recent supply chain problems that affect many products are a result of the Covid lockdowns in China. This week, the Advertising Specialy Institute (ASI) reported that “Suppliers say lockdowns in Shanghai and other areas of China are likely to delay restocking of promo products in North America.” The lockdown has created a huge pile-up of cargo ships near the Port of Shanghai. These ships are either waiting to get loaded or unloaded. How long will this last? It depends on the lockdown, and how the Chinese government handles the issue. Fortunately, Leatherman is in pretty good shape at the moment. Many other suppliers like SanMar (according to ASI) have anticipated this problem, and have stocked up on inventory, to above average levels. Other promotional product suppliers that saw this lockdown coming, also are probably prepared to meet customer demand this year.

Engraved Tools: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

When you order engraved tools with your company logo, you usually want an attractive tool. You want tools that take a difficult job and make it easy. Here are some examples of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly ones.

THE GOOD

The best example of this category is the world famous Leatherman Wingman. It is also my personal favorite. It contains about every tool that you could ever need in an emergency. Pliers, wire cutter, knife, bottle opener, blister package opener, can opener, file, scissors, etc.

THE BAD

My example for this group is the inspection mirror/pickup tool. Not that it is a bad tool, but it reminds me of the mirror that my dentist uses just before he starts up his drill.

Available in Red or Green Inspection Mirror/Pickup Tool 2292

 

THE UGLY

This is a difficult category to fill. I suppose it would have to be this new crazy looking worklight. It has an integral flexible cable that you can twist into any shape you want. It’s kind of odd looking. Maybe even ugly.

Problems With Personalized Pocket Knives (and Solutions)

Personalized Pocket Knives Sometimes Have Problems.
Personalized Pocket Knives Sometimes Have Problems.

Personalized Pocket Knives have your logo on them, so you can give them away and advertise your business at the same time. This is a great advertising idea, but here are some problems that can occur. Also the solutions and ways to prevent future problems.

  • Your knives did not arrive in time for your trade show. If the engraver promised a ship date, and failed to make it, then you deserve your money back. If however, he shipped on time, but UPS or Fedex took too long, then we are all victims of that situation. UPS currently doesn’t guarantee even a 2-day shipping method.
  • Your logo was engraved in the wrong location. You deserve your money back, or a discount on the knives. Or, the engraver can redo your order.
  • The knives are too big (or too small). The size of the knives is mentioned on the websites of all knife retailers. Next time, pay close attention to that. Sometimes the looks of a picture don’t convey the size of something.
  • The knives don’t look like the picture.  The only time this can happen is when the handle material is natural wood or natural bone. Each knife handle can vary from each other and from the picture. If there is another variation, attributed to a misleading picture, then you deserve compensation.
