Frogman, I have submitted my entry but have a question. Is this an automatic knife or not?

I am a civilian and not qualified to own or carry such a knife here in my home state of California.

Please let me know, thanks.

I want to win.

So no one else enter, or just submit lame names like, the toothpik, or strawberry short cake.

I put my $.02 worth in. As long as James Mattis doesn't hear about this, we may have a chance.

Well, it's still before midnight in California, so I've submitted my entry, even though I may not carry that thing on my person around here, nor in the passenger section of my car, but it would have an honored place in my desk clutter!


I want to thank every one here on BLADE FORUMS,THANKS TO MIKE FOR GIVING US THE PLACE-FORUM TO DO THIS.Thanks again for participating in the Name This Knife contest.We received a lot of good names.I will be posting the name of the winner,in case of the same name submitted multiple times the first email with that name will be posted with time and date of post.POST WILL APPEAR LATE TUESDAY night or EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. (CONTEST IS OVER) TOM
Your welcome Tom.

Good luck to all the entries and yes I even put my name in the hat. Should I win I will offer the knife for sale and the proceeds will go to BladeForums.

I just recieved a message that the email I sent to was not delivered because

"the destination computer was
not reachable within the allowed queue period. The amount of time
a message is queued before it is returned depends on local configura-
tion parameters.

Most likely there is a network problem that prevented delivery, but
it is also possible that the computer is turned off, or does not
have a mail system running right now.

Your message was not delivered within 3 days.
Host mail.hotmail.com is not responding.

The following recipients did not receive your message:


Can someone at MT respond? I would have liked to submit my entry, but it is now too late. Did anyone else suffer the same fate?
Is it my server, or hotmail.

I guess i am out of the running

Hotmail is notorious for mail problems, one of the reasons why I direct people far, faaaaaaaarrrrrrrr away from it.

It's almost to the point now that we are close to banning any future registrations from Hotmail because of the amounts of bounced mail we receive from them.

Insert witty quip here
"tengu", little mountain spirits/goblins who reputedly taught some of best Japanese swordmasters their moves. Cool name for a wicked looking tanto.


I second Spark's comments, St. James, as HOTMAIL is pretty close to worthless at times. Their reliability factor is way LOW.

Hey!!! I want that knife. In my opinion, my 5 names were FAR better than any of yours!!! hahaha Just practicin'. Really though. I did come up with some good ones. Plus, I deserve it. I'll make sure to do a review, and it WON'T end up as desk clutter!!! hahaha -AR

Did ya get mine frogman???
