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.

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.

my attention goes to the W. R. Case Company. Most of their knives have 1, 2, or 3 blades, and the handle style is pretty much the same. The main differences are the materials that the handles are made from, and the colors .

Engraved Gerber knives, however, come in a variety of blade shapes. More importantly, the handles vary in the material and styles. They range from solid synthetic to tactical-looking stainless steel as in the Titanium Nitride Paraframe.
