Style and Size. Engraved Kershaw Knives come in different styles and sizes. Pick the one that draws your interest. Your customers will probably like that one too.
Budget. Some Kershaw knives are made in the USA and some are imported. So, the price range is wide. What is the average lifetime value of each of your customers? Do they spend $5,000 a year?

Inventory across the world has been a big problem for the last 12 months. The items mostly affected are products from China. Fortunately, engraved Leatherman tools are made in the United States, in Oregon. So, the supply chain problems have been minimal for them.
The other widespread problem has been the labor shortage. I don’t know if Leatherman has been affected by that. According to the Leatherman careers web page, they are looking for job applicants at this time.
We currently have enough inventory of the most popular Leatherman tools. So if you order some, you will likely be in luck.
If you are a business owner, and like to give logo knives to your customers, do the knives help your business? Which customers should you target for your generous gift of a pocket knife with your company logo?
Hunters. They like the larger sheath knives or the larger folding hunting knives, like the Buck 110.
Preppers. They like survival knives. The multi-purpose knives that can break a window, cut a seatbelt, and start a campfire.
Farmers. They like the old fashioned Case Trappers (2 blades) or Stockman knives (3 blades). Case has a long love affair with the American public.
Campers. They too, like the multipurpose knives. Ones that can open bottles and food cans, light a fire, and saw some small branches.
Hikers. They have similar needs that the campers have. They need to be prepared for anything that they face on the trail.

The best season for giving company logo knives to your customers is Christmas. At least, that’s the busiest season for knife-giving. But there are a few reasons for other seasons to be the best choice.
Spring seams to be the best season to give pocket knives to farmers and others in the agriculture business. That’s when farmers buy seed and fertilizer, and equipment. The dealers take advantage of that time to give appreciation in the form of gifts. Company logo knives make the perfect gifts.
Summer is the season for everyone to receive a generous gift like a knife. Purchases of all sorts of things increases as the temperature rises.
Fall is for the hunters. If your customers hunt, they would appreciate a good hunting knife or pocket knife. They need to use a knife to field dress the larger animals.
Any season is a good season for giving company logo knives. It really depends on what market your clients are in. Plan ahead, because inventory can be a problem any time of year, especially Christmas.
