To keep it simple, here are just 4 misconceptions about company logo knives. I’m sure you can think of others.
The best price is what you need.
Knives are just for men.
A color imprint is the best imprint.
Chinese-made knives are junk.
Here are the answers….
This statement is an easy one to figure out. The best price may mean the worst service, or the worst imprint on your company logo knives.
Surprisingly, many females like to carry a pocket knife for protection, and to open boxes, just like men do. My pastor’s wife appreciated the multi-tool I gave her, because she does all the fixing around the house.
A color imprint may look the nicest, but laser engraving is the most permanent imprinting method. Color imprints can scratch off in time, especially if your car keys are rubbing against them in your pocket.
The quality of pocket knives coming from China is very remarkable. They are using good stainless steel, and the workmanship is very good. The price is low because of the low cost of labor in that country. Dako and Gerber and Starline knives are my favorite Chinese-made pocket knives.
When you order Custom Engraved Knives for your business, to give to your best employees or customers for Christmas, here are some tips. These tips will help ensure that you will be happy with your purchase.
You get what you pay for! You already knew that. Get a name brand, like Buck Knives, Boker, Kershaw, Gerber, Case, Kutmaster, or Leatherman.
Pick the best type of imprint. Laser engraving is the most permanent. It will never scratch off. Acid etching doesn’t go very deep, so it can wear off in time. So can color imprints, which are “painted” on. The best epoxy paints are used, and sometimes covered with a protective clear coat, but still, the imprint can be scratched off by your adjacent car keys in your pocket.
Choose a company that has the best service. Sometimes you can judge by the
quality of their web page. A neat, clean looking website that answers all your questions is good. It shows that the company is successful and cares about its customers.
Buy a quantity that is sufficient for your needs. If you need 1 or 2 more custom engraved knives later, after you received your order, you will pay more, or be subject to a “less than minimum” charge.
