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 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!).
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.
Well, today is Christmas Eve- I’m sure if you have children in your home they are eagerly awaiting Santa Claus! Lay out some milk and cookies for him (plus snacks for the reindeer!), and then go tuck your babies in and finish wrapping your gifts!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
(And we hope tomorrow you’ll be lucky enough to receive any of these special logo knives!)
Don’t get me wrong- there are plenty of fun things to do indoors during the fall and winter months: board games; card games; movie nights; experimental baking. But sometimes you just need to get some fresh air- especially after this crazy year we’ve had.
Today is Take A Hike Day, and these are just the items you’ll need:
What does being brave mean to you? It could simply mean facing a challenge head-on that you didn’t think you originally could face. This challenge could be something as small as facing your fear of heights by going to the top floor of a skyscraper. Or it could be even bigger like protecting and defending our country, as American military veterans have done, and continue to do.
Today is Veterans Day, a very special day in which Americans celebrate and honor all military veterans. The holiday originated as Armistice Day in 1919, as it honored the ending of WWI on the 11th hour of 11th day of 11th month in 1918. But in 1954, after the end of WWII, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in order to honor American veterans of all wars, not just those who fought in WWI.
What better way to celebrate and thank our veterans than with pocket knives engraved with the American flag. Handing them out at your company or town’s Veterans Day celebration will brighten up everyone’s day.
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.
If you are faced with the job of finding the perfect logo knives for your employees, here are 8 tips to make it easy for you!
The perfect manufacturer. Do you want the knives made in the USA, or imported. It may make a difference in your company.
The perfect price. What is your budget for this project?
The perfect size.Do you want a pocket knife, a sheath knife, or a non-folding knife?
The perfect color. Do you have an important company logo color that needs to be duplicated in the color of the knife handle?
The perfect imprint method. Laser engraving is permanent. Electro etching and pad printing are semi permanent.
The perfect tag line.Is your company logo enough of a decoration on the handle or blade? Do you want a tag line for this project? “Safety First in 2021″, Merry Christmas 2020”, “Thanks for your service” are examples of what you might want to imprint on another location, like the other side of the blade or handle.
The perfect timing. Should you give these out one at a time, or at the Christmas party, or at a safety meeting?
The perfect packaging.Some knives come in attractive boxes. Sometimes a wooden box or metal box is optional. The presentation is very important.
