You’re probably not going to feel sorry for me, but the biggest issue I face here is having all this cool stuff in front of me 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. If it’s not something I’m researching to answer a customer’s question, someone from purchasing or marketing brings something up that leads me straight to another item that I didn’t realize I needed until that moment. It’s hell, let me tell you.
For example, Hogue entered the field of knives, and we, being a Hogue retailer, added them to our site. I received the notification from purchasing, and I looked them up online.
Dang, that’s one nice looking knife! I have a thing for drop-point fixed blades, and the photos of the Hogue EX-F01 made me all tingly. Made in the U.S.A, too. Because I have the strength of ten men, because my heart is pure (cough) I was able to shake it off and go on about my business here.
First I received a spec sheet. Just a single page. With a photo. A color photo. The seed that had been planted by looking at the Hogue website had now germinated.
