    The only things excluded were grab bags (with the Black Friday exception) and more shop credits. The shop credits were good for "special offers," so they should have been good for a ganzaaa.

    Here is my $1,000 Grab Bag. Please correct me if I misidentified them.

    Custom Shop HOG Badger

    Both Knives for Comparison

    I noticed a couple of you had the same two knives in your bags. These look like excellent knives, I hope you enjoy them too!

    One more thing - I love how this HOG Badger has the same mosaic pins as my nuked FMV8. I couldn't post a picture last year because I was in the hospital for several months... so here it is now:

    Feeling really good today thanks to all this bacon :D

    It's a Comp Finish Forsaken Gemini, which is dangerously close to displacing my CF TGLB and TG '14 as an all-time-fave! I suppose a Gemini three-way photo session is in order.... will work on that. It's also my 1st with green/black G10, and I'm really diggin' it!

    The Custom Shop HOG Badger might violate my "users only" rule, as it's simply stunning, and would be hard for me to beat on! The INFI DS6 is pretty cool as well, but I'm not sure about it... I like the lighter Resiprene handled versions like my Basic 8, 1311, and ScrapMax.... the DS6 might take some acclimatization.

    I'm pretty stoked overall though, and will most certainly pounce on the next grab-bag-o-rama!

    I like that one better than mine!

    The FM14s are really appealing as well.... guess I'm in for multiple bags next time :)

    If you ever decide you want to let go of the CS HOG Badger or the DS6, just let me know. I have a DS 8 and I'd love him to have a little brother to play with.

    Is the smaller one a mentor? Never seen one with a swedge. I’m extremely happy with what I received :)

    I love seeing all these tan handled DS6 coming out!

    Be warned though, that if any of you post a pic of one in comp finish, that you will end up getting a PM from me congratulating you in the form of a cash offer. :p

    A question to the other lucky hogs that got a CS HOG Badger. Did they all get the nuclear treatment?
