Of course, you need a blade or two to start with. The rest of this is how the blades are protected and held in place when you are using the knife.
The liner is normally made of 2 layers of steel. One on each side of the blade. Then we add the metal bolsters.
All of these pieces are held together with metal pins, through the bolster, the liner layers, and the blade.
How about a spring, so the blade is held closed, and held open? That is usually held in place between the 2 layers of liner, by a pin in the middle of the knife.
To top off the appearance, scales (handles) are added. They can be made out of bone, wood, steel, or synthetic material.
The final product then is personalized with your name. This is usually done by laser engraving on the blade or the handle, or the bolster.
Some modern knives get their advanced look by having the liner do the job of the scales. Some have only a liner on one side, to save weight, and create a daring look.
Locking mechanisms are of two types. The liner lock holds the blade open by a spring action of sliding into the tang of the blade. The tang is the “root” of the blade. The other type of locking mechanism is the “lockback”. This is done by the spring locking against the blade tang. A lockback mechanism is easier to use. Some knives don’t have a locking mechanism. The blade tang just has a flat spot that rests on the spring to stay open when in use.
This is how the standard Personalized Pocket Knives are made. Knife designers are always looking for more unique ideas to attract knife lovers.

Personalized knives are engraved knives with a person’s name on each knife. They are designed to be personal custom gifts to each special recipient. Everyone likes to see their name on their possessions. Why not take advantage of this human trait, and advertise your company on the knives, too.
Choose a quality stainless steel knife with an attractive handle.
Order from a reputable online knife company.
Pick out your best, simplified corporate logo.
Prepare a list of your personalized names on an Excel worksheet.
Order a few extra knives without a name, for recipients that pop up in the near future.
Good question. Everyone likes to receive a gift knife with a corporate logo of their employer or a business customer. Personalizing goes an extra mile to accomplish this same goal.
Personalized Pocket Knives are a little different than putting a company logo on a knife. Personalizing really means we are putting an individual’s name or initials on the knife. Each knife is laser engraved with a different name. The pricing is a little different for doing this as opposed to engraving the same logo on every piece. Usually the cost is about $4.00 per piece, plus a setup charge of $20. If you want your logo on each knife, in addition to the personalization, that can be done, too. There’s a setup charge to do that, but the laser engraving of your logo is free. It’s included in the advertised price. Making you knives into personalized gifts is a great idea. Everyone likes to see their own name on their own things. It gives a sense of pride, and prevents knives from getting switched with someone else’s knife.
The Ohio Promotional Products Association had their semi-annual Cleveland Ohio show last week for distributors of promotional products. I am partial to pocket knives, so here are the best personalized pocket knives that I found in the show. Kent Getsee and Paul Rizzo represent Compass Promotions at the shows. All of the knives are offered with your company logo laser engraved on the blade, and sometimes the stainless steel handle.
What is more appreciated than receiving a gift with your own name on it? The answer is: Your whole staff receiving gifts with their names on each gift. Personalized Pocket Knives are a great way to show your appreciation to your employees. Giving each staff member a long-lasting gift such as a sturdy pocket knife with your company logo laser engraved is a benefit to you, too.
Why give personalized pocket knives for Christmas?
They are appreciated.
They convey your generosity to your employees.
They display your company logo for eternity.
Each recipient can identify their knife because their name is personalized on it.
Logo’ed or Logo Knives are pocket knives that have your corporate logo laser engraved or screen printed, or pad printed on the blade or handle or bolster.
Personalization is a term used for putting a person’s name on each knife, so that each knife has a different name. This is great at Christmas time, when you are giving a logo knife to your employees, and you don’t want them to accidentally get switched. Having personalized knives in your shop will make sure a person can identify his very own knife in case he lays it down somewhere.
Not all knife engravers are capable of doing both of these processes. Some can do only one.
