Do your employees like pocket knives? If they do, then they LOVE Buck Knives. With Christmas only 7 weeks away, your employees are wondering what you might give them this year. Will it be one of these fabulous Buck knives? Will you have your company logo laser engraved on the blade?
This week is National Forest Products Week, a week where we embrace the beauty and strength of our nation’s forests. According to the U.S. Forest Service there are many ways in which supporting our forests helps the whole nation:
Supporting sustainable forest management helps reduce damage from insects, disease, invasive species & uncharacteristic wildfires
Using leftover wood materials expands the wood products markets, creating an alternative to burning or sending remnants to land fills
Places rural America at the forefront
Creates American jobs at every stage of the supply chain
You can help support our nation’s forests by rewarding your customers with wood handle pocketknives this fall. Whether you prefer Case, Buck, or Kutmaster, there are countless styles of wood handle pocketknives and accessories to choose from.

We weren’t the only ones anticipating National Hunting and Fishing Day last weekend.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine took some time off last Saturday to celebrate the holiday. After a successful fishing trip on Lake Erie, he had a fish fry with personnel of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and other VIPs. Geneva Marina next to Geneva on the Lake hosted the event. Governor DeWine praised Ohio’s beautiful parks and the dedicated people who run them. Everyone at the fish fry agreed with DeWine when he suggested they make this an annual event.
In case you missed this national holiday, or were busy hunting and fishing yourself, our famous engraved Buck knives were at the top of our must-have list. A few other high-quality models such as Boker knives and Kutmaster knives also made the list.
All across the nation Saturday, hunters and fishermen are putting on their gear and loading up their trucks and boats with all the necessary tools for a successful day. One small but important tool none of them forgot to pack is their favorite engraved Buck knife.
A trusty knife is any hunter or fisherman’s best tool. Whether you are a club owner looking for an employee appreciation gift, or just want to add to your personal collection, you can’t go wrong with a laser-engraved Buck, Kutmaster, or Boker knife.
To all the hunters and fishermen out there, here are our top 6 best sportsmen knives, including the famous engraved Buck knives, with a few other high-quality brands added into the mix:
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.
Price and quality are the 2 main parameters when you are looking to buy company logo knives with your corporate logo laser engraved. This year, the most popular knives are:
The Maxam® Digital Camo Knife RSK11168.
The best feature of this Maxam® knife is the price. At $1.99, you can afford to give this knife to visitors of your table at a trade show. It’s in the price range of a good pen, but will last longer than a pen. It’s perceived value is much higher than its cost. Who ever threw away a pocket knife? Who ever threw away a pen? Your corporate logo can be imprinted on the handle in full color, or just white, for free.
This Buck® knife has always been popular because of its quality and reputation. Your company logo looks great laser engraved on the blade. You can’t go wrong when you give this knife to your best customers.
