Well, I will try to keep this down to at least 20 paragraphs
I havent had the chance to get outside for months to take photo's of my new knives etc...and I have been going crazy
Massive changes in my life, I have moved out of my lovely old Bungalow that I have lived in for 28 years of my life, I now live in a suburb called Howick ( very close to Auckland City ) and I have lost my neat old background for my photos!
But its al for the better, Sue who has blessed my life for 9 years now is now my Fiance, and we are getting married at the end of this year, and we now live together - her, me and my knives
I miss this place and I havent the chance to participate too much because of the huge shift, and finishing work on my house, but this Giveaway is dedicated to a huge amount of people right here.
Can I say that the people here just blow me away, and it just feels so right here, thank you for taking me in and under your wings with my lack of knowledge, and to everyone who I consider my friends who I wish I could name but the fear of offending if I missed just one name would be terrible.
I have given away quite a few knives away, and I love doing this......my latest was to a work friend whom I established a very good relationship - his name is Alf, and he has just got out of hospital from a very bad motorbike accident, smashed hip, shoulder, all but one of his ribs..it goes on...this touched me very deeply as I lost my best mate of over 30 years in the same way, the day when he passed away while I was holding his hand will never leave me, so I wanted to send something special to Alf to give him a challenge.
Alf is on his feet with the help of crutches, and he will receive my beautiful script Buck with sheath...I have challenged him to carry this knife everyday for 3 months, he should get the knife first thing next week!
ANYWAY!!!!!.... this time my friends, you will have to involve someone else to help take your photo....because it will be YOU using your knife! after that, you can flood the thread as much as you want with as many pics of our lovely knives as you can, but you MUST have at least one pic of YOU using your knife.
You must hang around in these here parts - 20 or more posts in this part of town I think lets you in
A way cool knife-and no........ you arent going to find out what it is , trust me, its a lovely knife! ( but it is a 1984 knife, and that year should give you a bit of a hint of who made it-as it is a significant part of their history )
I just bought this book, I first laid eyes on this magnificent book when fes ( festerfromenzed ) leant me his copy-Wow...this opened my eyes to this most famous brand...and I just have to share this with you, its an incredible book with stunning illustrations.
