Get your engraving done in the USA.
Art file: Furnish your best high resolution art file. Better yet, furnish a vector art file. Vector art is the best art. Examples are .ai files and .eps files, with the art created, not pasted, in Adobe Illustrator. If you cannot furnish the best art, a reputable company can convert it for you, at a small fee.
Speed. How long is the production time? Ask the company. 10 business days is average. 5 days is real good. If you have a deadline, some companies can meet your deadline.
Service. Deal with an engraver that answers your questions promptly and accurately.
Buck Knives have been around since 1902. The style of knife that you think of when you hear the word Buck is the model 110 Folding Hunter shown here. Or maybe you would think of the non-folding hunting knife like the Buck® Kalinga, also shown here. Either way, you will be surprised at what Buck came up with recently. The tide of popularity in knives has been going toward the tactical-looking knives. So the leaders at Buck didn’t want to miss the boat on this. They came up with some new models recently in the tactical area.
The 2 latest Engraved Buck Knives that will surprise you are the Buck® Black “Bones” and the Buck® Silver “Bones” Pocket Knives. Both are definitely tactical-looking.

Collectors are always looking for the newest, latest, most unique pocket knives at all the gun and knife shows across the USA. Factors they look for are the color, material of the blade, shape and material of the scales (handles), and the mechanics of opening and closing them.
The Kershaw Camo Scallion made the short list because of its printed camouflage design. It almost looks 3 dimensional, or glowing. The opening mechanism is Speedsafe assisted-opening system. It works very smoothly. Of course the blade is high quality 420hc stainless steel. Just so you don’t accidentally open the knife, it has a safety lock to keep it closed when not in use. Made in the USA.
Buck® has many styles of knives, and keeps up with the current tastes of its customers. The most popular style now is the tactical knives. The rich black color of the blade and handle make this a beauty. The openness of the handle makes the weight low. The tanto style blade shape and the serration are both good selling points. Great for an every day carry (EDC), but still a very beautiful pocket knife.
Boker is a fine American company that manufactures knives all over the world. The Boker Leopard Damascus II Knife wins this award on several points. The damascus blade, the blade shape, and the origin of the steel, are all winning points. The steel was forged out of the barrel of the German army tank Leopard I. This gives it the Rockwell hardness of 65-67. The handle has amazing features of its own. It is made of hardcoated 6061-T6 aluminum and it encloses Ziracote wood inserts.
