To be honest, I know next to nothing about fishing. I fished a little when I was a kid, but I don’t know all the ins-and-outs of the sport. But for those who do, this is your lucky month- it’s Catfish Month.
There are many tasty fish you can catch out there, but catfish are the ones I caught with my dad when I was young. I remember trying to stick the worm on the hook, casting out, and crossing my fingers that we would catch one.
When we did, we would bring them home in a bucket and my dad would clean them with one of Buck Knives greatest knives- their Fillet Knife. Then my mom would dip them in batter and fry them up.
When a potential customer asks about engraved Buck knives, they will definitely ask some of these questions:
How soon can we have them? Production time is usually 10 business days after proof approval. If you need them for an event sooner than that, we might be able to meet your deadline. You might have to use UPS 2 day, or UPS next day air for the delivery method.
What kind of art file do you need? Vector art is the best art. Examples are .ai and .eps files. Please convert all text to curves. Your artist would know what that means. Other types of files may work, and we can convert them for a small fee.
Is laser engraving permanent? Laser burns your image into the substrate. The image cannot be scratched off or wear off. It is definitely permanent.
Can you imprint our color logo? Sorry, laser cannot do colors. However, if the substrate is anodized aluminum, the laser will burn down through the surface color and expose the metal color.
How much of a down payment do you need? Normally 100%, since this is a custom order. You may apply for an open account with us, and pay by check when the order is done. Acceptance of an open account may take a week or two, depending on the references that you give.
Do you take credit cards? Absolutely. We take all major credit cards.
Can we see a sample before you put our order into production?There are two kinds of samples. A virtual sample can be emailed to you for your approval. There is no charge for this. If you want to hold an engraved Buck knife in your hand, that has your imprint, that is called a speculation sample (or spec sample). They are not free. They normally cost the price of the knife, setup charge, shipping, and $50.
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? Most of the handles won’t accommodate engraving, but some can. These engraved Buck knives can have your logo professionally laser engraved on the metal handle:
Finally. It’s almost here. Can you smell it? That is the smell of summer! In just a few weeks we’ll be celebrating the summer solstice. But in the meantime, this week is Fishing and Boating Week– your chance to get outdoors and emerge from your quarantine bubble.
For a lot of people, fishing and boating is a calm, leisurely activity. But others take it quite seriously. For those seasoned fishermen and boaters, we have just the thing for you- logo knives that will take care of your chores this summer, whether it’s filleting a fish or rigging ropes on your boat.
The most common thing to have engraved when a member of the military dies while in service is a gravestone, a plaque, or a monument. But have you thought about engraving a personalized pocket knife with his or her name? It would be a thoughtful and unique gift for their family & friends, don’t you think?
material and workmanship. They will repair or replace the knife, at their option. However, if your logo engraved Buck knives are at issue, then ask Buck to repair, instead of replace. Then your logo won’t be thrown away. The same goes for any other covered Buck knife that has sentimental value. At your request, they will repair it the best they can, so that you aren’t faced with a new knife instead.
Here are the exceptions to the warranty:
Damage due to your misuse of the knife. Never use a knife as a pry bar, screw driver, or chisel or hammer.
Bonus for those who mistreated their knife:
If you happened to misuse your Buck knife, not all is lost. The factory can probably repair it for you for just a few dollars. They can even sharpen, polish, and adjust it for you for just a few dollars, too. If it is beyond repair, they offer to give you a deep discount on a new Buck pocket or hunting knife.
