Happy New Year!! Free Knife Giveaway!

Mar 15, 2001
Congrats to wec12 for winning with his guess of 326! (my wife chose 298 as the number) Thanks for playing, everyone!

In celebration of the new year (and in the hope that we all made it through 2006 with only minor knife-inflicted cuts), I'm giving away a Spyderco Ladybug. The Ladybug has been used by my wife for the past three years, so it's defnitely used, but not abused. Here's a picture.


Here are the rules. To qualify, you must have:

1.) Joined BladeForums in 2006
2.) Have fewer than 10 knives in your collection (honor system here, guys), and
3.) Pick a number from 1 to 1000.

I will ask my wife to choose a number, and the closest to her number wins the knife. I'll ship it for free CONUS; if you're International we'll work something out. The contest ends at noon on January 3, 2007 EST Good luck everyone!

Does anyone on Bladeforums have less than 10 knives? You might have to up your limit.
Good point, but let's try it with 10 as the limit for now. If we don't get a decent number of responses, I'll raise it. Obviously kitchen knives, and other non-collection knives don't count. I really want to focus on newbies and lurkers.
