    By my count we currently have three active GAWs here. @SVTFreak and the Xmas GAW of a mystery knife TBD (ends 9/16). @glennbad and the Daddy GAW of four classic patterns in the winners choice of handle material (not sure when that one ends). And of course @Leslie Tomville and his part II of my happy place GAW (ends 9/8). I love all three of these GAWs and enjoyed all the others that recently ended.

    I have been gifted a few knives recently and the generosity from the porch and traditional knife community has been overwhelming. My good karma bucket is seriously overflowing so I have been gifting a few knives myself and had another GAW on FB already and can't wait any longer to have another one here.

    So here we go...

    A lot of folks seem to love barlows and I figured it would get a good audience if I offered my one and only example...a Case XX 65-69 user. The snap is great and there is plenty of life left in the blades.

    To enter you simply need to be a contributor to The Porch and reply "I'm in". However, that is not very satisfying for anyone so you can earn additional entries as follows:
    +1 if you include a traditional knife photo
    +1 if you include a joke or pun or funny story (family friendly please!)
    +2 if you include a joke or pun or funny story about knives (I don't know any...so just throwing that out there)

    I want to reiterate this should be a family-friendly GAW so please keep that in mind.

    Just post once to be in the GAW and I will add all the additional entries at the end somehow when I close the thread to draw a winner.

    And please don't worry if you feel like you shouldn't enter this because you already won something or whatever the reason...if you want this knife go ahead and enter. If your good karma bucket is overflowing too then have yourself a GAW it is a great feeling.

    Feel free to interact or post even if you don't enter.

    I'll kick this off with a few and contribute some more as things progress.

    A neutron walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a drink. The bartender says "For you, no charge."
    If Silver Surfer and Iron Man teamed up, they would be alloys.

    I'm not sure how long I'll leave this one open will have to see how it goes and make a call.
    Good luck everyone :)

    So this dyslexic walks into a bra...

    You don't like that one? Well, did you hear the one about the baby seal that walked into a club?

    Those jokes are so bad I don't feel wrong to say this is not an entry. I really like the look of that Case Barlow, but I always like the look of Barlows, and yet for some reason I can never bring myself to actually carry them. So I will pass on an entry, because there is no reason for a lovely nice user to end up in my safe with the other barlows I own.

    Here is a picture of one of my Barlows that never gets used. It was actually my first Barlow, and a gift from a kind porch member. I didn't use it much, but it got me interested in traditionals. I gave it to my dad, and now he carries it every day.

    Susan: "A real woman could stop you from drinking."
    Arthur: "It would have to be a real BIG woman."

    Ha! Some wine jokes just need to breath a little. They say drinking wine is a sign of true grapeness :)
    +2 for you, sir.

    Dyslexic jokes can be fynnu :)
    And I'm with you there I like the look of the barlows but don't feel compelled to carry one.

    Ha! Glad you joined in +1 for you, sir.

    I like the French Army Knife, here is a more better one...


    But I thought this was about traditional knives.

    Horse walks into a bar. Bartender says, "Would you like a drink?". Horse says, "I think not.", and disappears.

    Now, I know that on this forum I don't have to explain the philosophical concept of, "I think, therefore I am."

    That would just be putting Descartes before the horse.

    Skeleton walks into a bar. Bartender says , "What'll you have?" Skeleton says, "Give me a beer . . . and a mop."

    (Not an additional entry, of course. Was just reminded of joke!)

    Did you hear the one about the dyslexic agnostic insomniac? He lay awake all night wondering if there's a dog.

    Hre's a picture of my three favorite barlows: a blond, a brunette, and a redhead. (sounds like the beginning of a joke) My redhead is more of an auburn, so I can't resist entering for that pretty red bone Case.

    Here's a story that some of you might remember: When I was a child, someone told me that if I planted lollypop sticks in the ground, a lollypop tree would grow. I was always disappointed.
    Some years ago, I dropped a Boker Tree Brand knife in my yard and it rained all night. When I saw that it had sprouted, I thought "Why not?"

    And whaddaya know? It only bore small penknives, but still a pretty nice Boker Tree. I guess that's how they got their name. ;)

    I'm in, you've practically twisted my arm after all.;)

    This was my carry for the particular weekend
    I was at a baby shower type gathering for my cousin which was being held at the local bowling alley.
    Helping my aunt get the confetti into the balloons trying to get it through this paper funnel included in the package.
    I was using the screwdriver on the little yellow classic as a pusher to stuff it through when my other cousin comes up to warn me to be careful with that knife.
    I explained to him I was using the nail file / flat screwdriver , to which he replied it could still poke me.
    ( I haven't poked myself since Saturday :D )
    Anyways after I had finished using the little classic I put it back into my pocket, or so I thought.
    I went to grab it back out to snip a tag off of something for my cousins wife and it was nowhere to be found.
    I looked all over the floor and assumed I had missed my pocket and some other patron of the bowling alley picked it up.
    I was pretty upset because this classic has a deal of sentimental value connected to my grandfather.

    Then came time to bowl, I had brought my grandfathers bowling ball, bag, and shoes because I had them and figured why not.
    I wasn't sure if I was actually going to wear the shoes , but realized " I know who's feet have been in these, but can't say the same for a pair of stinky old rentals ".
    I'm so glad I decided to wear my grandfather's bowling shoes, because low and behold there was the little yellow classic inside the left shoe. Apparently I left the bag open when I pulled out a pack of hand rosin for someone to use and it found it's way in there.

    Had I not decided to wear his shoes the little classic would never have been seen again, because I just don't bowl anymore.

    Thanks for hosting this fun giveaway, and good luck to all who enter.

    Well, most of my jokes aren't family friendly, so I'll just leave this here:

    Why don't seagulls fly over bays?

    Because then they'd be bagels.

    I'm in. Thanks for the chance!
