    Hi Guys, First let me say that in my life I can see a path that I have traveled, that has been for the most part smooth, things have fallen in to place along the way at just the right times and as a result, I have been able to provide for my family, enjoy a lot of things and help a few others a long the way. These things did not happen because I planned them, therefore I give all the credit and the Glory to God, because left to my own plans and desires, It would have been an incredibly bumpy ride to say the least. That being said, I also appreciate My friends at Kershaw, Thomas, Diane and all the rest (too many to mention) for their support in my endeavors. Bladeforums for giving me an awesome place to do a large part of my business, and finally to you, my customers for all your purchases and your praise along the way. Thanks to all !!

    Now the giveaway rules:
    1: You are eligible if you have ever purchased a knife from me, no matter where, or when it was, eBay (steelhead151), bladeforums (kershawguy), my website ( www.kershawguy.com ) or at a show.
    2: Post only once in this thread, if you post more than once, only your first post will count.
    3: Post a positive thought about life, knives, Kershaw, favorite quote, etc. Just make it an uplifting thought, I find plenty of negative stuff in the threads, so this one needs to be positive please.
    4: Contest will end Sept. 10th and I will have someone not involved in the contest do a random number drawing for the winners.
    5: If you are a winner and I do not recognize your name, I will ask for you to prove you were a customer, remember this is a customer appreciation giveaway.

    Dave, I love you. In a knifenut way, of course.

    My dad always said "Life is always easier if you have the right tools" (Whether it's skills, character, attitude, or actual physical tools).

    Thank you for selling Kershaw/ZT knives (and shipping them really fast!), and making their tools available even the blems to us who can't make it out to the NW.

    A few years ago, if you told me how many knives I'd have now, I would not have believed you. The majority of my knives are Kershaw because of their quality, price and customer service. The damascus skyline got me into knives and I hope there will be many more skyline variants. I get my Kershaws from Dave when he's got what I'm looking for. Thanks Dave.

    Dave, you are a perfect example of how helpful this community can be. I have never seen a negative post from him and the great references that people give you reflect what sort of person you are. Maybe god has made your road of life pretty smooth as a result of what a good person you are. Win or not I look forward to future purchases and the great service that you provide.

    Thanks very much. This is a great giveaway but more than that, a great way to bring some positivity to a form that all too often has negativity strewn about. You rock!


    You mentioned something about quotes so here is one of my favorites.

    "I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious."

    Kershaw and ZT brands are proof that God wants us to be happy with our knives. :)

    There aren't many things in life that can bring the joy of opening a piece of mail and finding a knife that exceeds you're expectations. Thanks for what you do Dave.

    You know you're a knife nut when you're as excited for National Knife Day (8/24) as you're for X-Mas.

    Another excuse for new knives!!!!

    Most recently, I received a Gentleman's folder from Dave.

    The fit and finish is exemplary - and the overall look is stunning. I have received nothing but the best service and nicest knives I could ask for.

    Thanks for the chance Dave, and keep up the good work.

    Dave thanks for this opportunity. I have a positive story for you. I have been into knives since I was little but everyone I knew thought I was crazy. Well at my wedding 2 years ago I gave knives to all of groomsman and parents as a gift. Well since then my brother, brother-in-law, mom, dad, and cousin have seen the light and now carry knives on them daily. They now know what it is like to have a knife when they need it and I'm glad to know that due to me my family is more prepared for what life throws at them.
    Dave thanks for everything you do for this community and I love buying from you because you are the best seller I've ever dealt with.

    If I wasn't for knives my life would not be as great as it now. Knives are my life. I use them everyday as a Chef and a collector. They have been with me through thick and thin and have made me the man I am.. Every chance I get I give knives to close ones to pass my joy along.


    Thanks Dave and God Bless

    Ok here goes... I was never a Kershaw/ZT kinda guy until the 0560 caught my eye. I ordered it then started reading about blade centering/play, yadda, yadda, yadda. I got mine (from you I might add :cool:) & it's perfect! Not one single flaw or even dislike I could find!!! Absolutely blew me away. So much so in fact, I haven't carried my CRK large Insingo since this knife got here!!!:eek: So, Kershawguy, I salute you & the knife you sent me. I 'm not the kinda guy who wins this kinda thing, so I ain't holdin' my breath, but thank you for the generous opportunity & thank you for changin' my kind about this brand!!!:thumbup:

    I ordered my first ever kershaw knife from the Kershawguy (somehow received it two days after I ordered, amazing). It was an orange skyline. I have to say more and more of my Internet time is spent on this forum, and I think I'll be out of money by the end of the year. Thanks for feeding my newly found addiction.

    I think I've purchased from you from here, your site, and in person but I don't think yet on eBay. I'll have to find something to knock that one off the list :)

    Thomas is the man! We'd all love him back but cheers to a new era that will hopefully find our new mods posting more regularly and developing a bit of snarkiness of their own!
    We're lucky to have your knowledge and long history with the brand still and I hope you can keep poking your head in even as you maintain those amazing shipping times you are known for!

    It also sounds like you've started a new era of your own taking the knife sales up full time but I hope you'll hit some of the larger shows in the area occasionally if only OKCA since the ZT offerings at brick and mortars here are pitiful. KAI-USA is in transition as well it sounds like with less reliance on the old KO series, lots of great new designs from Hinderer and others around the corner while we can still continue to rely on great stuff from RJM.. and production ramping up over seas to allow the ZT and high end lines to potentially double in size.

    It's a great time to be interested in the brand and hanging out here with such great people! Thanks Dave for being a part of that and a long time member that helped make things what they are!
