    A very generous giveaway. I’d like to play along. If I’m lucky enough to win please pass it on to @r8shell, if I’m not mistaken she appreciates punch blade stockmen and cattle knives.

    I'm in too.

    My dad in Arizona, sometime around 69 or 70, getting ready to go out and shoot javelinas. He looks kind of cowboyish to me.

    And then some Blazing Saddles cowboy action.

    It’s usually easy to post a pic from the internet. I can’t post my own personal pics either. Regardless, tell me your favorite cowboy story and your in.

    I dunno ... 'THE RIFLEMAN' episode where he told his boy (quote) "No gun ever aimed and triggered itself." (end quote) or maybe the ground breaking 'Blazing Saddles' cowboys sittin' around the fire eating beans?
    (BTW, that was the first time cowboys (or anyone else) passed gas in a movie. So, 'BLAZING SADDLES' is/was a "ground breaking" movie.)

    I "grew up" in Iowa. I never saw any cowboys there, except on TV or on the movie house "silver screen".
    (the screens were white, at our two movie houses.)

    Awesome GAW, thanks for the chance! :)


    My entry is a modern movie and if you have not seen it you are missing out! I grew up watching Tombstone, lonesome dove, spaghetti westerns. I love being transformed back to a different time. More simple, more brutal. Hostiles is an amazing film about a soldier forced to go against his beliefs and escort a war prisoner, well heck, I dont want to ruin it :)

    Got to have some alternative Western content too :D The late Lee Van Cleef, where would spaghetti be without his contribution?:cool:

    I've got a lot of knives really and I'm moving away from big patterns but if I win and to cut out the Intl. shipping I'd like to have the knife sent to @MerryMadMonk Al is a great collector and very generous type too.

    Thanks, Will

    I grew up with spagetti westerns. But I never saw Clint anywhere near a cow, so here's an alternative take. No cows, either. :) Oh, yeah, I'm in. What an awesome knife. Great GAW

    Guess I'm my favorite cowboy...

    Kids decided we needed another hoofed animal a while back...

    Ended up with a mini bull!

    He's half Dexter half Mini-Jersey.

    Buck is my latest backyard buddy and he's certainly a handful.

    Pic below is Buck graciously holding my micarta Eureka Jack with Cotton helping out with eating duties.

    Count me in and thanx for the GAW generosity!!!

    In!



    I hope this 7 second clip shows up- enjoy!

    Trivia~ (you’re reading it on the internet, so you know it’s true)
    The preferred moniker was “Cowhand”.
    It signified being fully proficient in handling cattle- a journeyman.

    A “Cowboy” was exactly that-young, an apprentice. Often made to ride drag-behind the herd keeping stragglers in line, where all the dust was.

    “Cowpoke”, and “Cattlepuncher” meant one of the railyard hangers on whose job was to use sticks poked through the fences and cattle chutes to keep them moving into the railcars. Often the older, busted up cowhands who could no longer ride, sometimes just the local drunks. Often used as a joking insult between cowhands.

    Thanks!

    edit: bad internet connection...
    Maybe this link is better!
