Award-Winning Engraved Buck Knives
Award-Winning Engraved Buck Knives

This month, the award goes to these engraved Buck Knives. The Alumni knives 524 were picked because of

  1. their variety of colors. One of them will fit into the corporate colors of a company.
  2. their light weight. The aluminum scales are responsible for this.
  3. the secure “lockback” locking mechanism. This is a favorite of mine because it is easy to unlock, by squeezing the back of the handle.
  4. their being made in the USA.
  5. their small size, so you can easily hide them in your pocket.
  6. the ability to laser engrave your corporate logo on either the handle or the blade (or both).

Are Engraved Buck Knives Warranted For Life?

Best Knife Warranty:

Buck Knives, Inc. USA has one of the best warranties in the business. They call it

the Buck Forever Warranty. It is basically a lifetime warranty against defects in

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.

Why Is There A Setup Charge For Engraved Buck Knives?

Why the Setup Charge?
Why the Setup Charge?

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.
