Regardless of the COVID-19 restrictions we face, this 4th of July will be one to remember! Gone are the days where we squish our picnic blankets close together to watch firework displays, and we also won’t go to a crowded parade this year either.
Many business leaders like to show their appreciation to their employees, and folding knives are a great way to do that. Personalized pocket knives are knives that have the person’s name somewhere on them, besides the company’s logo. Here are 3 tips to make your project a success.
Put the recipient’s name on the outside, where it can be seen, instead of on the blade. The handle or the metal bolster are the best places. Your logo can go somewhere else on the knife.
Instead of engraving their first name and last name, engrave their first name and number of years of service. That adds more depth to your gift.
Packaging is everything. If you can order a metal or wood presentation box, your gift will be much more impressive. Case knives have optional presentation containers that add to the perceived value of the gift knife.

That is probably because the equipment needed for laser engraving a logo is much more expensive than a “letter scratcher”. Any jewelry store and trophy shop has one of those machines. The best place for you to look is online. There are a few pocket knife engravers on the internet. That’s the best place to go to get pocket knives engraved with your corporate logo. Laser engraving knives is an art and science. Why?
Not all steel (or wood, bone, synthetic material) is able to be neatly laser engraved. The hardness and makeup of the steel may not allow the job to come out neatly, without a halo burn, and without rough edges.
The imprint has to be the right size and located in the same location on each knife. To do this, a jig has to be made for each knife style.
The timing has to be adjusted to get the best imprinted image.
The laser power has to be adjusted to also get the best results.
The final color of the imprinted area can be adjusted by using certain chemicals in the process. They make the image more noticeable. There’s nothing worse than seeing a silver image against a silver background.
Cleaning up the knife after the job. If this isn’t done, the laser dust can discolor the areas on which it is sitting. This anomaly is permanent, and cannot be erased or removed.
All Buck Knives can be laser engraved with your logo on the blade. But what if you want your logo to be seen even when the pocket knife is closed?
