If you are a business owner, you are always looking for ways to increase your income. You know that promotional products are useful, long-lasting, and appreciated. You can’t say that about a newspaper ad.
In my experience, I have never found a retail store that is capable of selling pocket knives engraved with your logo. Initials and lettering, yes. Logo, no. That is probably because the equipment needed for laser engraving a logo is much more expensive than a “letter scratcher”. Any jewelry store and trophy shop has one of those machines. The best place for you to look is online. There are a few pocket knife engravers on the internet. That’s the best place to go to get pocket knives engraved with your corporate logo. Laser engraving knives is an art and science. Why?
Not all steel (or wood, bone, synthetic material) is able to be neatly laser engraved. The hardness and makeup of the steel may not allow the job to come out neatly, without a halo burn, and without rough edges.
The imprint has to be the right size and located in the same location on each knife. To do this, a jig has to be made for each knife style.
The timing has to be adjusted to get the best imprinted image.
The laser power has to be adjusted to also get the best results.
The final color of the imprinted area can be adjusted by using certain chemicals in the process. They make the image more noticeable. There’s nothing worse than seeing a silver image against a silver background.
Cleaning up the knife after the job. If this isn’t done, the laser dust can discolor the areas on which it is sitting. This anomaly is permanent, and cannot be erased or removed.
Safety is an important word these days. It is better to be prepared than sorry. The sale of Engraved Pocket Knives with rescue tools on them is big business. If you give rescue knives with your logo to your employees or customers, you will be a hero. And maybe they will be, too. Here is Gordon Blake holding two rescue knives for Dave Navoyosky at a recent trade show in Cleveland OH. Gordon is a field representative for Kutmaster/Utica knives.
Take advantage of multiple imprint locations. Put your company logo on the handle, and a saying on the blade, like “Merry Christmas 2019”.
Packaging is important, because it is the first impression. Case knives have optional wooden boxes and metal cans, for that perfect presentation. See the genuine Case packaging.
“Personalization”. Many pocket knives can be engraved with the recipient’s first and last name. This adds more meaning to your special gift. Plus, if someone loses their gift knife, it will probably be returned to them.
We weren’t the only ones anticipating National Hunting and Fishing Day last weekend.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine took some time off last Saturday to celebrate the holiday. After a successful fishing trip on Lake Erie, he had a fish fry with personnel of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and other VIPs. Geneva Marina next to Geneva on the Lake hosted the event. Governor DeWine praised Ohio’s beautiful parks and the dedicated people who run them. Everyone at the fish fry agreed with DeWine when he suggested they make this an annual event.
In case you missed this national holiday, or were busy hunting and fishing yourself, our famous engraved Buck knives were at the top of our must-have list. A few other high-quality models such as Boker knives and Kutmaster knives also made the list.
