YouTube has a few interesting videos on how to electro-etch your imprint on the blade of a pocket knife. Just go to Google and type in logo knives and click the “videos” tab, to find some short videos. They show how any do-it-yourself-er can develop this interesting hobby. I tried this method when I was in high school, and had some success. It involves using DC current, which passes through a salt water-soaked pad, which is placed onto a stencil that is temporarily taped to the knife blade. The electricity just eats away at the steel, and your imprint is slightly dug out of the steel blade. For the stencil material, I used an old-fashioned
mimeograph stencil. I don’t suppose you can find that material now. You would put it into your typewriter, and the striking action of the steel letters would damage the stencil enough to make it permeable to liquids. You wouldn’t use the typewriter ribbon. You would turn off the ribbon. So the permeable area that is the “letter” would act like a screen in a screen printing process. Only you wouldn’t be using ink. You would be driving the salt water through the screen area. Today, you can have someone make you the stencils, then you can do the fun part.
If you don’t need a hobby like this, you can have a professional knife etching company apply your corporate logo. Electro etching is only one way of doing this. Modern laser engraving machines have become more popular. They actually make a deeper, more permanent imprint into the stainless steel knife blade.
Odds are, your mother probably already has everything she needs or wants. But this year, on #MothersDay, maybe you should try giving her something that she didn’t even know she needed.
The best logo knives that you can give your mother today not only has the obvious blade, but it has a nail file, scissors, screwdriver, toothpick, and tweezers. It even has a key ring to keep it easily accessible, and comes in all colors of the rainbow.
This time of year, the weather can be quite unpredictable. Sunshine, clouds, rain, thunderstorms, maybe hail, maybe even snow? You never know what’s going to happen next. But the best thing that comes out of these crazy weather patterns are rainbows! Today is Find a Rainbow Day- can you find one?
Maybe even if the weather doesn’t prove to make one, you can find rainbows in other places- like in beautiful rainbow logo knives:
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 beautiful green logo knives as your accessory) 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 logo knives, we finally found our way to the end of the rainbow, where there’s a gold 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!
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!).
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.
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!)
Did you get sidetracked these last few weeks of December and forget to get those last few customers or employees a thoughtful gift? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Time can really fly this time of year, but there is still time to have some logo knives rush-ordered for your valued customers.
Any of these high-quality pocket knives can be engraved within 24 hours and then they’ll be on their way to you!
