Knives and flashlights are kind of in the same group when it comes to accessories. Most people in this industry are carrying one or both of them almost all the time but depending on the job you are on, there is always a chance you are going to loose it. Sometimes these are consider expendable and other people spending money for pouches or holders so they reduce the chances anything will be taken off of them. Just clipping a knife to your back pocket doesn’t mean a fall down the stairs, or getting in and out of your car is going to keep it in place. I’ve seen enough people walk in our door several days after purchasing a knife only to come back in and buy it again because they lost it. If you take care of your stuff, and spend the money for a good knife, you are going to want to brush up on all of the knife sharpening optics especially if you have a serrated or partially serrated knife. It can be difficult to keep that part sharp and if you have to cut through something, it makes it a lot easier to do.
I have done Filet knives, steak knives and plenty of tactical and utility knives with the Gatco 5 Stone Knife Sharpeners. We always try to keep them in stock and have one at the counter to show some of the various features, and also how easy it is to use these. Most people don’t pay attention to warranties in this industry and from a retail standpoint, it’s nice to be able to point people to the manufacturers website if there is a problem. SOG Knives and Leatherman have great Warranties and always keep that in mind if you need to replace a multi-tool blade or device. We always looking for new stuff to carry especially in the rescue and multi-tool so if you don’t see it on our website, let us know what you are looking for.
