A simple go-to meal that anyone with zero cooking ability can make: a cheese platter.

-crackers, focaccia, baguette, etc
-nuts, olives, dried fruits

Put your corporate logo on laser Engraved Leatherman Tools for National Safety Month. This is a great way to remind your workforce to practice safe procedures every day. June is National Safety Month, as celebrated by the National Safety Council. They offer free posters, and you don’t even have to be a member.
Engraved Leatherman Tools come in basically 2 different sizes. The full size is 4 inches long when folded. The pocket size is about 2 1/2″ folded.
The most common thing to have engraved when a member of the military dies while in service is a gravestone, a plaque, or a monument. But have you thought about engraving a personalized pocket knife with his or her name? It would be a thoughtful and unique gift for their family & friends, don’t you think?
The original folding fruit knife was made of silver and mother-of-pearl in the late
1700’s in England. Why those materials? Silver is relatively soft, but it is resistant to the citric acid that would eat away at steel. Also, silver has anti-microbial qualities, which would tend to keep the knife free from harmful growths of bacteria. Mother-of-pearl is also impervious to citric acid, and it adds to the beauty of the knife. The less expensive fruit knives had celluloid handles, which would also be resistant to the acid content of fruits.
Today, most fruit knives are made of stainless steel. Sometimes plastic handles are used, to make the knife handle last longer.
In America, the fruit knife became popular in the 1930’s. Many companies would have their logo imprinted on the plastic handles in their corporate colors. They would give these as advertising products to their customers. Many are found in the possession of knife collectors today.
These specialty knives are made with very long skinny spear blades. Some blades are serrated. They are used by fruit and meat inspectors to get a sample from deep inside the product. The inspectors can then examine the smell, texture, and color of the product.

During the COVID-19 quarantine many people have turned to cooking and baking as new hobbies. So much so, that I’ve even heard that there is a shortage on flour!
If you’re one of the lucky ones who still has a bag of flour at home, try your hand at a good ol’ traditional apple pie. It doesn’t require any fancy tricks or too much skill. You can even just skip the homemade crust altogether and buy a frozen crust! All you need are some apples, sugar, and perhaps cinnamon and nutmeg. There are countless recipes online- go find one that sparks your interest on #ApplePieDay.
Once your pie is fresh out of the oven, slice it up with this American-made Cutlery pie server and share it with your quarantine team! Yum!
