    Sorry I missed the deadline for the contest, I realize that most likely excludes me from actually entering.

    I figured I would share it with you guys anyways. The reason I picked to use the MK2 in the picture is because MY grandfather Carried a Ka-bar USN MK2 while serving in WW2. Had fun making it. I'm no expert at photoshop so keep that in mind, hope you guys like it.

    I just wanted to let the nice folks at Ka-bar know that I will be sending this out tomorrow. I feel horrible that it took me so long to get around to it. It’s no excuse but I got caught up in life and school work. I do feel honored that you picked my entry, you should expect the package soon. Thanks again.
