The first Wednesday in June in the USA is National Running Day. It calls
attention to a hobby that has gained popularity over the last 20 years. People have become very health conscious lately. “60 is the new 40”. In the last century a 60 year old man looked 60 years old. Now he looks about 40, because of the new attitude toward health. Every weekend in the summer has a race somewhere near you. Participants don’t mind paying $20 to $75 to run in a group and get some swag. You don’t have to finish in the top three to get cash or a prize. You just have to be in the top 3 in your age bracket and sex bracket. Since there are many age brackets, for both men and women, there are many category winners.
How can you celebrate this day?
Sign up to run or walk in a race. Many races have those two options.
Support a runner or walker.
Sponsor someone to race, if that is an option.
Take a short video of your favorite runner crossing the finish line, then pan over to the clock, to show their time.
Give engraved pocket knives with your company logo to the winners, or to all the participants. They will never forget you.
Buck has broken the mold of conformity, with the introduction of the Slim Select 110s series of pocket knives. Now buying engraved Buck Knives with your company logo can be a colorful experience. Many corporate logos have color in them. Now it is possible to reflect or compliment that color in the knife handle. These are made in the USA of domestic and foreign parts. They are available in Green, Tan, Grey, Orange, Red, and Black, and are a full 4 4/5″ long, closed. The blade is 3 3/4″.
We are proud of the Kershaw Leek Knife 1660. It was named 2002 Knife of the Year by Blade Magazine. Since then it has remained a top seller to companies that love Engraved Kershaw Knives. It’s a rather large pocket knife, a full 4″ closed. The feature that I like most, is the patented “Speedsafe Assisted-Opening System”. It also comes in a genuine Kershaw one-piece gift box.
During Christopher Columbus’ journey across the Atlantic Ocean, he surely had some sort of pocket knife to help him along the way. If he were alive in modern times, he certainly would have chosen one of these engraved Gerber knives:
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.
Your employees may want a unique pocket knife this Christmas. Make their wish come true with these logo knives.
Give this money clip “with an attitude”. The Boker Plus Pelican has a stone-washed appearance, and sits easily in a pocket, or clipped to a pocket. The fashionable tanto blade gives it that special look. No other knife has this combination of tactical features.
For the top employees in your company, this $685 collector knife is your wise choice. The Boker Mammoth Tooth pocket knife is very rare. Its scales (handles) are made from real mammoth tooth. Mammoths were an elephant species that lived more than 5 million years ago and is now extinct. The importing of this material is not controlled by any government. Nevertheless, it is very rare.
Finally, another expensive collector knife is the Boker Leopard Damascus II Knife.
The successor of our first pocket knife with a Damascus blade forged out of the barrel of the German battle tank Leopard I. The edge holding ability is much higher compared to what other steel can achieve. A hardness of 65-67 HRC gives you an indication what to expect. Our forger’s capabilities are proven by his Damascus pattern: “Large Pyramid.”
It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving- are you ready? Whether you’ll be cooking everything, just bringing a side, or starring as the main taste-tester, everyone expects a great meal on this special day. If you haven’t already, this weekend you’ll need to start planning your menu. Here are some easy steps to take to make it less stressful:
1. PLAN MENU– take into consideration any allergies, food sensitivities, or diets. Have sides that are fine served cold or at room temp so that your oven won’t be overcrowded.
2. SHOP- Get your non-perishables as early as possible, and then go back next week to get your perishables. Try your best to beat the supermarket crowd by going first thing in the morning!
3. MISE EN PLACE- “everything in its place” Chop up and organize all your ingredients as early as possible (even days before, if the recipe allows). Prepping as much as you can the days before will give you the chance to visit with your guests the day-of.
4. COOK- Some things must be made on Thanksgiving day (the turkey of course!) But unless you have a huge oven, not everything will fit if you have the turkey in there sizzling away. Cook as many sides as you can in the days to come- and then reheat on the big day once the turkey is done.
*Don’t be afraid to buy something pre-made– you don’t have to do it all yourself. You can always leave a few things to the experts at the bakery down the street.
6. EAT UP! Make it easy for everyone to cut through your delicious meal with this American-made steak knife set.
