Engraved Swiss Army Knives in Basel?

Any ideas on where to find in (or around) Basel? I picked up two at the Christmas market (engraved on the spot) and intended to head back for a few more (at the timeI was still undecided on what to bring back for a few people). Then I got sick and wasn't able to make it back to the stand before the markets closed for good.

Of course there are tons of places that sell them, but I'm having a hard time finding one that will engrave.

Any tips would be appreciated!

Hello, if you don't mind German, I just ordered from this firm www.sackmesser.ch and am very pleased.

I ordered on the 16th Dec and everything arrived on the 20th, including the engraving.
At the moment, I read, they are on holiday, so won't be able to deliver with engraving till the middle of January, so hope that isn't too long for you.

Great selection of knives and accessories and I think the prices are competitive, with different options for posting here or internationally, so I'm sure you will find what you are looking for.

Thanks! I can handle written German so that site is no problem. And i really like how they can engrave blades. The ones I had done are basically inked onto the handles and I am suspicious about whether it will last very long.

I'm leaving for the US Jan 2nd, but I go again later this spring. If I don't find a local option in the next couple days I can just tell people their Christmas gift is currently in the hands of very precise Swiss engineers and will be ready on my next visit!

Thanks again!
