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.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day, but what are we going to do to celebrate since most festivals and parades are canceled due to coronavirus concerns? Sure, you can still wear green all day (with a beautiful green engraved pocket knife) and drink a pint of Guinness, but it’s not the same as going to a fun boisterous parade.
Don’t worry, there’s still a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, if you’re willing to go search for it. We sure found one! After ogling over these beautiful rainbow engraved pocket knives, we finally found our way to the end of the rainbow, where there’s a gold engraved pocket knife.
Take your pick- one for you and one for your best customers!
Don’t forget to add a beautiful green one to your list as well!
Everyone needs to have a trusty pocket knife in their possession, men and women alike. But today, on International Women’s Day, here is the best pocket knife (plus a few others!) that we recommend for your female employees. Go ahead and get any of these engraved with your logo or your employees’ names!
While we’re at it, did you know this history about #IWD2020?
1909: idea began by Socialist Party of America in NYC
1917: made a national holiday in Soviet Union, after women gained the right to vote. Mainly recognized by only socialist and communist countries
1960s: women’s rights groups worldwide called for equal pay, equal opportunity, reproductive rights, child care, violence prevention, overall gender equality
What has your company done lately to show its true appreciation for its employees? Today is the day to seize the opportunity to thank them for all of their hard work- today is #EmployeeAppreciationDay!
This is the perfect day to thank your employees, which will help keep them on your team and not your competitor’s! Keep your company culture strong and increase everyone’s productivity by showing them how grateful you are for their work.
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
America’s farmers are some of the unsung heroes of our country- providing us with such a bountiful variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, & grains. We’re quite lucky how self-sustainable our country is. This week is the time to celebrate and support our current and future generations of farmers- it is Future Farmers of America Week!
What do our farmers rely on the most during their day-to-day tasks? They want to grab their best pocket knife out of their back pocket. These are by far the best ones out there to celebrate #FFAWeek:
SODBUSTER STYLE: EDC (everyday carry) knives that any farmer can carry in their back pocket and grab whenever needed
STOCKMAN STYLE: You don’t need to carry multiple knives, as this style has 3 blades in one. Multiple uses for farmers & ranchers who have livestock
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
Many of their knives are manufactured in Portland, OR
They use 686,000 lbs of steel a year!
One of the most prestigious positions at the company? The Knife Sharpener
January has passed, and most people’s New Year’s resolutions have come to a halt. Now that we’re in February, how can we get back on the healthy bandwagon? This month is American Heart Month, a month that aims to bring awareness to our heart health and the prevention of heart disease. How can we do this?
Track your heart health stats (talk to your doctor about your blood pressure, weight, and cholesterol goals)
Eat healthier (increase intake of fruits, veggies, whole grains, while reducing sodium, saturated fat & sugar intake)
Be physically active (the NIH recommends 30 minutes, 5 days a week)
The easiest way to hold yourself accountable for any of the above is to form a support group. Who else in your office would love to improve their heart health? Get the group motivated by handing out matching red logo knives to your team at work. Go on daily walks together after lunch; share yummy healthy recipes at your company potluck; have a competition to see who can reach their heart health goals first. Remember, #OurHearts are healthier together!
At the top of most people’s Valentine’s shopping lists this week are chocolates & jewelry, wallets & toolboxes, right? How about you change it up this year and get your whole team at work the best pocket knife they’ve ever seen? They can keep it in their car, kitchen, or garage, and if you have it engraved with something thoughtful they’ll think of you every time they use it.
