How to Sharpen Engraved Gerber Knives

When new, you shouldn’t have to sharpen

engraved Gerber knives. But after some use, you will have to sharpen them. The best advice is “Easy does it”. The gentlest but most effective knife sharpener is the R119 by “American Made Cutlery”. It is made of two wheels of hardened steel, that are placed close enough together to provide an ideal angle of sharpening. It sharpens both sides of the blade at the same time. You want to draw the knife blade through the opening smoothly and gently, as if you were slicing something. Other sharpeners are on the market for more rugged sharpening jobs. We’ll get to them next time.

The All-Time Best Engraved Buck Knives

110 Engraved Buck Knives

The Buck 110 Folding Hunter Lockback is the “poster child” of the Buck family of pocket knives. When someone refers to a Buck knife, this is the one that people picture in their minds. It has been made in the USA since 1964. It’s a huge 4 7/8″ long when closed, and sports a 3 3/4″ stainless steel blade. The packaging of a genuine leather sheath make it an attractive gift package for your employees or customers. If you ask, “How long will my logo last?” My answer is, “Does anyone ever throw away a pocket knife?”

Engraved Buck Knives have been around since 1961, and will probably outlast many other forms of promotional advertising.

Can Engraved Gerber Knives Rebound From Covid-19?

There seems to be some lingering effects from the Covid-19 lockdown of year

2020. In that year, production levels of many products decreased. This was caused by the reduction in the workforce due to “social distancing”. Other effects were a reduction in the availability of raw materials. Shipping materials and finished products from China suffered as well.

Currently, the production time for engraved Gerber knives is 15 or more business days. Normally the production time used to be 10 business days. This additional 5 days may not be too important in the month of July. But, when the Christmas rush begins in October, those additional 5 days could affect the Christmas deadline. Imagine having a company Christmas party, and the gift knives haven’t arrived yet. My advice is to plan ahead, so you don’t get caught with this sort of inventory problem.
