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.
Buck Knives started in 1902 with a new way to make a knife blade stay sharp longer. Their history got a shot in the arm with the ever-popular Buck® Folding Hunter Lockback 110 in 1964. From then on, Buck® introduced other designs like a flat stainless steel handle (model 327 Nobleman), synthetic handles (Bantam 283BK), camo handles (Bantam BBW Camo 284cmo) and the tactical style (Black Bones 870-BK).
In 2019 Buck® came up with 2 new designs. The Buck® Graduate 328 and the Buck® Alumni 524. The Graduate has an attractive burlwood handle, which appeals to the collector.
The Alumni knife is a re-invention of the flat stainless steel handle of the 327 Nobleman. But this time, the handles are anodized aluminum, available in four colors. Blue, Black, Gold, and Grey. One of these colors is likely to coordinated with the corporate colors of a business owner. Their logo would be laser engraved on the handle.
