Take a deep breath and make sure you’re sitting down for today’s company logo knives lesson about Case knives. Have you ever wondered what the method is behind their numbering system? We’ve have all the details here!
Case has 2 numbering systems. Each knife has 2 numbers assigned to it: a SKU number and a Pattern.
SKU number (Model Number) This is like any other SKU number. It identifies the item according to its size, shape, color, number of blades.
Pattern Number The pattern is not as specific as a SKU number. Several SKU numbers could have the same pattern. Their difference would most likely be a different handle color. The purpose of the “Pattern” is to encode information about a knife into only a few digits. For example, 6347 is a pattern.
The first number is the handle material (6)
The second number is the number of blades (3)
The last 2 numbers are the pattern number, (47). 47 is the code for a Medium Stockman . 54 is the code for a Trapper.
Sometimes the number is followed by 2 letters (SS for Stainless steel, or CV for Chrome vanadium)
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 personalized pocket knives 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
In days like these, it’s important to keep our nation unified. What better way than to refresh our minds with a little history lesson about the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance? After all, today is a national holiday celebrating this special oath.
Did you know…
The first American pledge of allegiance (different from the one we recite today) was written by Captain George Thatcher Balch during the Civil War. It goes:
“We give our heads and hearts to God and our country; one country, one language, one flag!”
The pledge we all know today was based on one written by Francis Bellamy in 1892. It goes:
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”
Congress formally adopted Bellamy’s pledge in 1942, and added the words “Under God” in 1954.
Since the beginning of humanity, a sense of community is what holds us all together and keeps our world and economy functioning.
Today is #FarmRescuerDay, a day focusing around a wonderful non-profit organization that began in 2005.
Farm Rescue (https://farmrescue.org/) helps American farmers in need- whether it’s due to sickness, injury, financial crisis, or natural disaster. Its volunteers provide manpower either out in the field by planting and harvesting, in the barn by feeding livestock, or by lending the necessary equipment or money.
How can you help support our nation’s farmers today?
