These two new Gerber knives are a little out of the ordinary.
The Obsidian Fine Edge Knife 1021 isn’t just a knife. It also has a nail file, phillips screw driver, and bottle opener, and flat head screw driver. All these are nicely hidden in the handle until you need them.
The other engraved Gerber knives that command attention, are the ones that don’t have a blade. Well, at least the blade isn’t part of the knife. The EAB Knife 41830 uses contractor quality utility knife blades. That assures that you can always have a brand new sharp blade to open boxes. Utility blades are good for a lot of cutting that a carpenter, electrician, and painter does. Need a money clip? There is a pocket clip built into this knife, which you can use to store your paper money, too.
Boker USA® is always designing knives that are way ahead of the time. These logo knives are examples of their futuristic thinking. The Urban Trapper Tanto 01BO721 doesn’t look like a pocket knife, so it blends in with the urban style. The pocket clip is positioned so that the knife does not stick out of your pocket.
The unique curve of the whole knife when open, is a new design from Chad Los Banos of the CLB Kerambit 01BO580. It has a carabiner on the end of the handle so you can carry it on a belt loop, or on your backpack. Chad is a Hawaiian police officer, so he definitely knows what features are needed in a pocket knife.

When a business owner orders engraved Buck knives with his company logo, he generally has to pay a “setup charge”. What is this charge for?
The art department prepares the art file so that it will be legible at the size available on the knife. If there is too much small detail in the art file, they will suggest alternatives to the business owner.
The laser machine has to be set up with the art file. This takes a little time. It is the same amount of time, whether 10 knives or 1,000 knives will be laser engraved.
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.
