The knives have to be delivered to the laser machine from the warehouse. This also is the same amount of time, whether 10 or 1,000 knives are needed.
So, the setup charge is independent of the number of knives engraved. The price per knife can’t be adjusted for this finite charge. This is the fairest way to price the engraved Buck knives or any other imprinted item.
