(for the most current description of the pet food manufacturing process visit: )

pet food is a specialty food for domesticated animals that is formulated according to their nutritional needs. pet food generally consists of meat, meat byproducts, cereals, grain, vitamins, and minerals. in the u.s. about 300 manufacturers produce more than 7 million tons of pet food each year, one of the largest categories of any packaged food. pet owners can choose from more than 3,000 different pet food products, including the dry, canned, and semi-moist types, as well as snacks such as biscuits, kibbles,

, and treats. in the 1990s, this $8-billion industry feeds america's 52 million dogs and 63 million cats.

commercially produced pet food has its origins in a dry, biscuit-style dog food developed in england in 1860. shortly afterwards, manufacturers produced more sophisticated formulas, which included nutrients considered essential for dogs at the time. at the beginning of the 20th century, pre-packaged pet foods were also available in the u.s. initially they consisted primarily of dry cereals, but after world war i, dog food made of canned horse meat was available. the 1930s ushered in canned cat food and a dry, meatmeal type of dog food. some innovations by the 1960s were dry cat food, dry expandedtype dog food, and semi-moist pet food.

beginning in the 1980s, trends in the pet food market included greater demand for dry foods and less for canned foods. research suggested that a soft diet of canned dog food led to gum disease more quickly than did dry food. in general, the growing health-consciousness of the public led to an increased interest in more nutritious and scientific formulas for pet foods, such as life-cycle products for younger and aging pets, and therapeutic foods for special health conditions of the pet, such as weight loss and urinary problems. pet food producers were also more inclined to use less fatty tissue and tallow and more protein-rich tissue. finally, the pet snack category grew in popularity with products like jerky snacks, sausage-shaped pieces, biscuits, and biscuit pieces called kibbles.

raw materials

the primary ingredients in pet food are byproducts of meat, poultry, and seafood, feed grains, and soybean meal. among the animals used in rendering are livestock, horses, and house pets which have been put to sleep. the national animal control association estimated that each year about 5 million pets were shipped to rendering plants and recycled into pet food during the 1990s. they are generally listed as meat or bone meal in the ingredient lists.

the animal parts used for pet food may include damaged carcass parts, bones, and cheek meat, and organs such as intestines, kidneys, liver, lungs, udders, spleen, and stomach tissue. cereal grains, such as soybean meal, corn meal, cracked wheat, and barley , are often used to improve the consistency of the product as well as to reduce the cost of raw materials. liquid ingredients may include water, meat broth, or blood. salt, preservatives, stabilizers, and gelling agents are often necessary. gelling agents allow greater homogeneity during processing and also control the moisture. they

Kershaw factory sale 2019, Saturday

November 30, 2012

Never put the alarm clock on the night stand next to your bed. If you’re serious about getting up for something on time put the alarm clock across the room. I break that rule all the time. It was no different on Friday morning when the alarm went off at 5am. I lay in bed thinking if I really wanted to drive up 2-1/2 hrs up to the Kershaw Knife Sale. It happens every year the weekend after Thanksgiving. They bring their overstock, blems, clearances all out for the public to buy at tremendous discounts. While you’re shopping you can leave previously bought knives with the sharpening department and they’ll have them ready for you when you leave. If you have any warranty work to have done on your old Kershaw knives they’ll have those done too.

I decided to jump out of bed and hit the road since the sale only happens once-a-year and it would be fun to see all the knives and other gear for sale. I grabbed all our Kershaw kitchen knives and a few other pocket and hunting knives and threw them in a backpack. At least I could get my knives sharpened. I knew my late departure was going to mean standing in a long line. However, the forecast for rain showers made me think it would keep the crowd down. WRONG!

Knife enthusiasts are hard core to say the least. The weather man turned out to be wrong again. It was very pleasant and there were a bunch of people in front of me. It was 8:30am and there was a line about 200 yards long in front of me. There were babies, toddlers, moms and dads and lots of outdoor-types and chefs standing in line. People were pretty considerate of others as I didn’t see too much cutting in line. Although courteous behavior could’ve been due to a real or perceived fear of getting shanked by someone waiting to get their dull knife sharpened. Don’t know. But, I do know there is truth to the saying, “An Armed Society Is a Polite Society”.

The doors opened at 9am and the line in front of me shrunk to about 70 yards. I was getting close to “the promised land”.  Looking behind me, I saw the line had not changed since the early morning. There were a bunch of people who came after me. It took about 2 hours to finally make it into the factory. I thought this must be part of Kershaw’s strategy, people wait a long time in line and when they get in are they just going to browse? NO WAY. After waiting in line for a few hours, you’re gonna buy stuff for sure. Especially if you traveled any distance to get there on top of that waiting in line. That would be me.

Nice thing about the annual knife sale (besides the deals) is the Kershaw staff is super nice and friendly. They pass out lucky numbers as you enter the factory for hourly prize drawings and there are an endless amount of band-aids at each station should you find your finger bleeding. They are very service oriented and are all in the Christmas spirit. One employee told me that people seldom leave the company once they get a job there. There are over 300 employees at the factory and it seems they all love working there and it shows.

Getting in line at 8:30am, just a little late...
About 200 yards of line in front of me with 30 minutes before the doors open
Another view of the line with cars parked down the street
Entrance in sight, almost there! Two more hours...
Finally in!

BLEMS ( Kershaw Factory Seconds )

1776BW Made in USA Blems No Box

Kershaw blems are offered at a very large discount and have no factory warranty. They are marked with four small x’s on blade to designate them as blems. Blems can be many things including but not limited to, scratches, spots on blade coatings, discoloration, Etc. These are sold without boxes and are a great value as users, if you are a collector, I suggest you browse the new items section. I offer 100% satisfaction on your purchases.


The missing link—between a quality, made-in-the-USA knife and a price most consumers can afford—has been found. Or, to be more precise, Kershaw is making it. Appropriately, we call it the Link and have given it the patriotic model number of 1776.

This Link, model 1776, is our drop-point blade model. The 420HC stainless blade steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. A stonewashed finish gives the blade surface a desirable roughened or scuffed look, and helps hide scratches and fingerprints.

The handles are matte-finished glass-filled nylon for lightweight strength. The sculpted lines and texture of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. The Link feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look.

For easy opening, the Link is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessed with the built-in flipper. The pocketclip is reversible for convenient left or right-handed pocket carry. The Link is made in Kershaw’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon.
