Are most of your customers loyal patriots? Then today is a great day to help them celebrate- it is #NationalAnthemDay! Eighty-nine years ago, President Hoover adopted “The Star-Spangled Banner” as our national anthem.
Did you know…
“Hail, Columbia,” “America the Beautiful,” and “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” were also frontrunners in the competition to become our national anthem
There are actually 4 stanzas in “The Star-Spangled Banner”, but we usually only sing the first
It was originally a poem about the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812
In many places throughout the U.S., February is snow season. But that shouldn’t stop you from celebrating today’s holiday: Play Outside Day. Bundle yourself up and build a snowman, a snow fort, or make snow angels (no one is ever too old do any of these!).
There doesn’t need to be a national holiday to remind us all that buying engraved pocket knivesmade in the USA is one of the best ways to support our country. There are so many benefits, including but not limited to:
Up-close quality control
Less transportation & fuel costs
Increased jobs for Americans
So today, on National Manufacturing Day, don’t forget to support our local companies and workers and buy products made in the USA.
Gerber knives are anything but traditional. When I think of a traditional knife,
my attention goes to the W. R. Case Company. Most of their knives have 1, 2, or 3 blades, and the handle style is pretty much the same. The main differences are the materials that the handles are made from, and the colors .
Engraved Gerber knives, however, come in a variety of blade shapes. More importantly, the handles vary in the material and styles. They range from solid synthetic to tactical-looking stainless steel as in the Titanium Nitride Paraframe.
In 2020, Gerber introduced the rectangular shaped Quadrant Knife with a Bamboo handle. What an innovation for knife collectors. It opens easily with the flick of your wrist, and a touch of the flipper.
There are a lot of pocket knives out there to choose from, amiright? How do you choose the right one for your customers? Well, if you’ve at least narrowed your search down to the popular engraved Gerber knives, here are some stats about them that may surprise you:
Gerber Knives is the #1 direct military supplier of knives & multi-tools

They use 686,000 lbs of steel a year!
One of the most prestigious positions at the company? The Knife Sharpener
It’s Christmas morning: You’re all cozy on the sofa.. in your pj’s with your hot cup of coffee.. watching your family open their gifts.. the smell of a breakfast casserole is wafting in from the kitchen.. What better way to spend a morning? Until, wait.. someone can’t quite open that box that Santa taped shut way too well. Any smart person would go straight for their best pocket knife to help open that stubborn box. To be honest, that pocket knife should always be by your side in times like this, no matter the time of year.
