    10/1/2014- ...And the winner is...JEFFSENPAI (post #384). Congratulations!! I've sent you a private message to get your mailing info and sheath choice. Thank you to all who entered the contest and if you would like to purchase a knife like this, give me a shout.

    9/30/2014-Bump for last chance to enter. I will close this thread this evening and will draw the winner tomorrow. New owner of the knife should have it within a week.

    Ok, so some of you viewed and even entered my giveaway yesterday. Well it turns out that I was in violation of forum rules because I was asking people to send me friend requests on Facebook so they could follow my knifemaking (and of course, I would build a larger customer base to market those knives to). The contest thread was pulled by the mods BUT, I'm a stand up guy. I said I would give away a knife and I intend to do that. I will comply with the rules by NOT asking anyone to click on my facebook link and send me a friend request though, if you do, being the friendly guy that I am, I will probably accept.

    The new rules for the giveaway are post up in this thread and comment on the knife, the forum, how your day is going...whatever! Post one time only! I will draw the winner on October 1st by using a random number generator app to choose a post number from the thread. I will read all the posts and I was always good at the match game so if I see multiple posts by a member, I will eliminate you from the drawing. Just trying to keep things fair for everybody. Since there is an issue with this forum sometimes double posting, you will need to delete one of the posts should this occur. When I draw the number of the winning post, if it turns out to be a deleted post, I will flip a coin to decide to go above or below the deleted post.

    Note: The thread from September 4th is gone. If you entered the contest on the deleted thread, you will need to re-enter by posting in this thread.

    If you win, you will get the handmade clip-point EDC pictured below. This is one of four EDC I've been working on that all feature the same specs but, with different blade profiles. This one is really a prototype as I will primarily be making these knives in CPM-S35VN or AEB-L. It will come with a custom leather sheath by Jack Andress and I will cover the shipping as well. I will not ship the knife outside of the U.S.. It is your responsibility to ensure the knife meets any local laws for possession or carry.

    Thanks for the support,

    Bob

    That is just beautiful. Very artistic as well as functional. It would be my first fixed blade, and what a way to start!

    Thank you.

    Very nice, whoever wins this is one lucky SOB.

    I know it won't be me though. I could be the only person in a raffle and still lose. My luck is worthless. :eek:

    Ranger Bob, I have liked every knife I have ever seen you post on the 'Shop Talk' forum, and this one is no exception! I love blue liners BTW, so I'm definitely in, thanks for the generous give-away.
