You can learn a lot from your competitors. Why are they doing better than you?
By studying their methods, you can implement their ideas and catch up to them in the business world. Here’s one trick they use. They give Buck Knives to their best customers. Here are the benefits, and why you should do the same:
When they give quality Buck Knives, they are reflecting the quality of their own products and services.
Giving any gift, is a reason to make a sales call.
Their corporate logo is on the knife, so it will be a constant reminder to the customer.
If their customer can’t use this type of gift, surely their spouse can. Now they made two people happy.
The customer appreciation will last forever, because the Buck Knives will last forever.
Every week boys across America gather in meeting rooms with their fathers to learn how to become reliable, kind members of society. The Boy Scouts of America have been around since 1910 and have around 2.4 million (!) youth members and almost 1 million (!) adult volunteers.
Here are the rules about being a Boy Scout:
Scout Oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
Scout Mission: The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
So this week, as we celebrate the 110th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America, make sure every Scout is equipped with one of these 3 personalized pocket knives in their camping bag, ready to safely conquer the great outdoors.
material and workmanship. They will repair or replace the knife, at their option. However, if your logo engraved Buck knives are at issue, then ask Buck to repair, instead of replace. Then your logo won’t be thrown away. The same goes for any other covered Buck knife that has sentimental value. At your request, they will repair it the best they can, so that you aren’t faced with a new knife instead.
Here are the exceptions to the warranty:
Damage due to your misuse of the knife. Never use a knife as a pry bar, screw driver, or chisel or hammer.
Bonus for those who mistreated their knife:
If you happened to misuse your Buck knife, not all is lost. The factory can probably repair it for you for just a few dollars. They can even sharpen, polish, and adjust it for you for just a few dollars, too. If it is beyond repair, they offer to give you a deep discount on a new Buck pocket or hunting knife.
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.

Kershaw Knives didn’t exist before 1974. That’s when Pete Kershaw left Gerber and started his own way of designing and manufacturing pocket knives. Today some of their knives are made in China, and some are made in the USA. Since the design and workmanship is so well controlled, the average person can’t tell where a particular Kershaw knife is made.
Decorating pocket knives has become so popular, due to the high quality laser engraving machines in use today. Engraved Kershaw Knives are laser engraved with a customer’s company logo, and used for advertising purposes.
The design of this line of knives is much different than your grandpa’s knives. You won’t see wooden handles, and pen blades, and stockman-style designs. Instead you see a curvy tactical form with a modern look. Here are 3 examples of knives that your grandpa never dreamed of:
It’s fruit trivia time! Which fruit originated in China 4,000 years ago and is a relative of the peach? Your first guess might be the nectarine, right? It is, in fact, the petite and beloved apricot- a fruit rich in vitamins A & C. It made its way slowly westward from China, through the Mediterranean, and finally over to North America, where it mainly settled in California. California produces 95% of our country’s apricots. Yum!
As the new year commences, a common topic during this first week is how can we improve our diets in 2020? Maybe cut out processed sugars? Nix the meat and meat byproducts? Or how about just focusing on eating a more balanced diet? Sometimes it’s not about going on an actual “diet” (that label makes it sound temporary and negative)—but by just changing your mindset around food.
During Diet Resolution Week keep these things in mind:
Embrace a healthy lifestyle year-round, then it won’t feel like you’re on a “diet.”
Cook more for yourself at home- eating out can cause you to overeat or eat something you normally wouldn’t allow yourself to.
Plan your meals- every week plan, shop and prep when you have time.
Use American Made Cutlery to chop up all of those fresh fruits, veggies and meats that you found at the market
