Do you need some high quality pocket knives with your company logo? Here are some handy tips to find the best personalized pocket knives:
Do a Google search for “logo knives”.
Find a knife company that has a clean and easy-to-use website.
Choose a USA-made knife.
Ask about the warranty.
Ask for a virtual proof before your order goes into production.
Provide vector art. If your art is not in vector format, a reputable full service knife engraving company can convert it for you. Vector art will make your logo look the best. It is much cleaner-looking and jpg gif files.
The best USA-made knives come from Buck, Case Cutlery, Kershaw, Kutmaster-Utica, Leatherman, and SOG.
If you follow these tips, you will be proud to give your clients the highest quality, longest-lasting corporate gift possible.
Many business owners like to give quality gifts to their clients and employees. It is a great way to show their appreciation. Often the best idea for long-lasting gifts is personalized knives. How do you make this idea a reality? Here are some points:
Start with good artwork. If you don’t have any, then just use the name of your company.
Find a quality knife company on the internet. Using the words “company logo knives” will get you the most relevant knife engravers that can help you out.
Order USA-made knives, if they fit into your budget. If not, many Chinese pocket knives are available in high quality. Dako is one of them.
Ask for a virtual proof before your order is put into production. It is better to find a mistake on your computer screen than on 100 Buck knives.
Ask about the warranty. Many knife manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty, or a 25 year warranty.

On the back of the blade it will say “Accident Free Award–2016”.
