• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Didn't get what you wanted for the holidays? Time for some giveaways to change that!

We received a BUNCH of great stuff for our 20th anniversary; so much that I'm going to try to give stuff away every week in 2019! We have prizes from Busse, Spyderco, Emerson, Ontario, Boker, Benchmade, Kizer, White River, Darrel Ralph, Becker / Ka-Bar, Buck Knives, Himalayan Imports, Cold Steel and more. I'll also be giving away items that we've taken in over the years, t-shirts, stickers and memberships to some forumites as well.

It's hard to believe that this community has become such a driving force on the industry & there's nobody out there more appreciative than I for your continued support!

So, with that in mind, some ground rules:

Main prizes are limited to members with paid subscriptions, in the US & Canada only. You will be contact via PM and the email address listed in your profile so it'd behoove you to make sure you have your profile info up to date.
Bonus prizes will be open to any member with a registration date prior to November 2, 2018 - this is to combat people registering multiple free accounts to stack the deck. If you don't have a paid subscription, you'll be contacted by the email listed in your profile so again, make sure it's updated.

To enter, post in the thread listed below (NOT THIS THREAD, THE ONE IN THE GIVEAWAY FORUM), one entry per person. Duplicate entries mean you get disqualified from the contest, same if I discover you have multiple profiles. If you win a physical prize, I'll need to get your address for shipping!

Week 3 Main Prize:

Busse Combat Custom Shop Flak Jack

Bonus Prizes: Bladeforums T-shirt, BladeForums Logo Velcro patch, BladeForums Sticker, paid subscription upgrade
