This month, the award goes to these engraved Buck Knives. The Alumni knives 524 were picked because of

  1. their variety of colors. One of them will fit into the corporate colors of a company.
  2. their light weight. The aluminum scales are responsible for this.
  3. the secure “lockback” locking mechanism. This is a favorite of mine because it is easy to unlock, by squeezing the back of the handle.
  4. their being made in the USA.
  5. their small size, so you can easily hide them in your pocket.
  6. the ability to laser engrave your corporate logo on either the handle or the blade (or both).

Do you know anyone who is not convinced of the value of engraved Kershaw knives? Here is a fool-proof list of methods for your presentation:

  • Pick out a sample of your favorite Kershaw knife, and let him try it.
  • If that doesn’t work, tell him that the Scallion 1620 is an assisted-open knife. When you move the flipper, the internal spring opens the blade the rest of the way, quickly.
  • Tell him most of the the Kershaw knives are made in the USA.
  • Show him that his laser engraved logo will never wear off.
  • Show him the genuine Kershaw gift box that comes with all the knives.
  • Let him see the removable pocket clip that comes with most Kershaw knives.

Good luck. I hope these tips work for you!

How To Take Care Of Your Fruit Knife

Besides the normal maintenance that you would give any pocket knife, here are some tips specifically for your fruit knife.

  • Wash it or rinse it thoroughly, to get rid of fruit residue. The acid content of oranges, lemons, tomatoes and some other fruits would etch the stainless steel.
  • Dry it to remove all traces of the rinse water. This will prevent some steel parts like the spring and pins from rusting. Even some grades of stainless steel can experience some degree of rusting.
  • Oil it with cooking oil instead of non-edible oil.
  • Store it in a clean environment, so you won’t contaminate your fruit next time you use it.
  • Use a knife-friendly cutting board. Never cut on a ceramic board, because it would dull your blade immediately.

As with any other knife, here are some general tips:

  • Keep it sharp. The sharper it is, the easier it cuts. Instead of using a stone, I prefer the type of sharpener that has two steel wheels.  That way I don’t get any stone grindings contaminating the works. Then rinse and wipe the knife off before use.
  • Never use your knife as a pry bar or hammer.
  • Keep it in the pouch when not in use. This assures it won’t get contaminated or misplaced.

Your fruit knife will last longer if you take good care of it. Thanks to “Sharpening By Dave” for some information in this article.
