Of all the engraved Kershaw knives we sell, the most popular is the Ember 3560-K. Why is it so popular?

  1. Small size. It can fit in your pocket and not take up too much space.
  2. Assisted-Open. The flipper is part of the blade tang. Just flick the flipper, and the knife opens.
  3. The dark color is a satin finish, which makes this knife attractive.
  4. Your laser engraved logo would look white against this dark colored stainless steel handle.

How Personalized Pocket Knives Are Made

Personalized pocket knives are usually hand made.

  1. Of course, you need a blade or two to start with. The rest of this is how the blades are protected and held in place when you are using the knife.
  2. The liner is normally made of 2 layers of steel. One on each side of the blade. Then we add the metal bolsters.
  3. All of these pieces are held together with metal pins, through the bolster, the liner layers, and the blade.
  4. How about a spring, so the blade is held closed, and held open? That is usually held in place between the 2 layers of liner, by a pin in the middle of the knife.
  5. To top off the appearance, scales (handles) are added. They can be made out of bone, wood, steel, or synthetic material.
  6. The final product then is personalized with your name. This is usually done by laser engraving on the blade or the handle, or the bolster.
  7. Some modern knives get their advanced look by having the liner do the job of the scales. Some have only a liner on one side, to save weight, and create a daring look.
  8. Locking mechanisms are of two types. The liner lock holds the blade open by a spring action of sliding into the tang of the blade. The tang is the “root” of the blade. The other type of locking mechanism is the “lockback”. This is done by the spring locking against the blade tang. A lockback mechanism is easier to use. Some knives don’t have a locking mechanism. The blade tang just has a flat spot that rests on the spring to stay open when in use.

This is how the standard Personalized Pocket Knives are made. Knife designers are always looking for more unique ideas to attract knife lovers.

The Newest Best Pocket Knife

The newest best pocket knife this year is made by Leatherman®.

These are the features that earned it our highest approval:

  • Small enough to keep in your pocket, yet big enough to do bigger jobs.
  • Super sharp blade. It comes very sharp, and stays sharp.
  • Light weight, because of the “holey” design. Both sides of the handle and the blade have this feature.
  • Opens easily with the thumb hole.
  • Locks in the open position, so it won’t accidentally close on you.
  • Minimal but safe handle design, which shows off the blade.
  • Stainless steel pocket clip with an integral bottle opener.
  • Sturdy liner lock mechanism.
  • Partially serrated blade can do the heavy jobs of cutting rope.
  • Made in the USA of U.S. and foreign components.

Here are the Best Assisted-Open Pocket Knives all in one place. All 2 dozen of them. Different knife manufacturers make knives that are easy to open. Once you start to open one of the assisted-open knives, it takes it the rest of the way. These are not switch-blades. These are much safer and easier to use.
