Since the beginning of humanity, a sense of community is what holds us all together and keeps our world and economy functioning.
Today is #FarmRescuerDay, a day focusing around a wonderful non-profit organization that began in 2005.
Farm Rescue (https://farmrescue.org/) helps American farmers in need- whether it’s due to sickness, injury, financial crisis, or natural disaster. Its volunteers provide manpower either out in the field by planting and harvesting, in the barn by feeding livestock, or by lending the necessary equipment or money.
How can you help support our nation’s farmers today?
As we all wait out this coronavirus pandemic from the comfort of our homes, we can’t help but to start compiling a stockpile list in our heads.
What is on your list? Non-perishable foods such as beans, rice, pasta, etc? Lots of proteins to stick in the freezer? Have you also thought about what is the best pocket knife to have on hand? It’s always good to have a pocket knife nearby to help you with a variety of tasks to help ease the anxiety of an emergency situation.
When you hear the word “worship” you usually think of gods and religions, right? Well today people nationwide will be worshipping something very different and more concrete- TOOLS. Today is National Worship of Tools Day! And what better tool to help you around the house, garage and yard today than an engraved Leatherman tool?
Engraved Leatherman tools are a necessary and happy addition to anyone’s tool arsenal on #WorshipofToolsDay. Your friends, family, neighbors, customers, and employees alike will become devoted followers as well!
Besides the normal maintenance that you would give any pocket knife, here are some tips specifically for your fruit knife.
Wash it or rinse it thoroughly, to get rid of fruit residue. The acid content of oranges, lemons, tomatoes and some other fruits would etch the stainless steel.
Dry it to remove all traces of the rinse water. This will prevent some steel parts like the spring and pins from rusting. Even some grades of stainless steel can experience some degree of rusting.
Oil it with cooking oil instead of non-edible oil.
Store it in a clean environment, so you won’t contaminate your fruit next time you use it.
Use a knife-friendly cutting board. Never cut on a ceramic board, because it would dull your blade immediately.
As with any other knife, here are some general tips:
Keep it sharp. The sharper it is, the easier it cuts. Instead of using a stone, I prefer the type of sharpener that has two steel wheels. That way I don’t get any stone grindings contaminating the works. Then rinse and wipe the knife off before use.
Never use your knife as a pry bar or hammer.
Keep it in the pouch when not in use. This assures it won’t get contaminated or misplaced.
