This is the official application thread and thread of record for the KA-BAR KREW.

Why join? For the love of Ka-Bar, of course. And for free stuff! Knives, swag, upcoming kontests! And glory. Always for glory.

Application post requirements are as follows. In your post in this thread, you should provide the following...
  1. A picture of at least one Ka-Bar knife you own. ANY Ka-Bar knife, old or new, any series. If it says Ka-Bar on the knife, it qualifies.
  2. At least 25 posts in the Ka-Bar subforum and 100 total posts at Bladeforums. To showcase your involvement in Ka-Bar, please do an Advance Search (your username, this subforum) and post a screenshot of the results. Hint: Numbers show up at the bottom of the page.
  3. At least three QUALITY, original threads started in the Ka-Bar subforum. In your application post, please link to each of these threads. Quality and originality will be evaluated by the moderators. Put another way, we don't need thirty "What is your favorite Ka-Bar?" threads. Keep it fresh.

Other notes...
  1. To retain your number, you must remain a member in good standing at Bladeforums. Should you be banned from the forums, you'll forfeit your number.
  2. Numbers will be assigned in the order that successful application posts are received in this thread. You can ask for a number under 999, but all numbers are first-come, first-serve. Number requests will be best considered if an applicant takes participation up a notch--eg. hosting a giveaway, contributing to the subforum in an impressive manner, doing a (safe) stunt that jacks members up, etc. An initial range of numbers (001 to 015)will be reserved for OKB, Ka-Bar designers, Ka-Bar moderation staff, and other folks instrumental to the Ka-Bar subforum.

As per your offer in the Ka-Bar chat thread:
Shave MOOOSE into your chest hair and lay a Ka-Bar across your titties. That'll get 'em talking! :D
That's a name your number event.*
*below 999

I'll remove the images later if you want ;) Here is the first one. It took a while because my wife was laughing so hard. Its really hard to see because lets face it I'm no Wookie;

After reviewing the image, we both agreed that it was too hard to make out, so she grabbed a sharpie and traced the outlines...... It's going to take a bit to scrub this off...

I hope the two knives in the pictures count as my picture of some Ka-Bar's I own :thumbup:

"MOOSE" shaved in your chest gets you the number of your choice. I'd still like to see you start two more threads in Ka-Bar, but we can work that out.
I'm just glad someone else had their username shaved into hair, though I do sort of wish you'd spelled it "MEWZ." Enjoy scrubbing. :D What number do you want?
Oh, and those images are already saved. You take 'em down, they're going right back up. :p

Remember this?

Welcome to the new folks! NCSlice, you need to link the threads individually. That Search link won't deliver repeat results. Dang nice set of Ka-Bars though!

It looks like TBL has established a precedent, and Moose already suggested it. We'll match a BH number if a poster goes the extra mile. Host a giveaway, no matter how big or small. Shave "tradewater" into your back hair. Dress up like your favorite Ka-Bar designer. Grow a Bob Dozier beard. It don't take much to please the mods! Well, Bladite maybe, but you'd have to find vintage tools for him right now. :p

Slice, I went ahead and gave you a number since I see three of your threads on page one. Please go back and put three links though.
We're asking for links so we don't have to fool with the search function for each applicant. Just click, click, click is a lot easier.
444 is available if you want to kick it up a notch. :eek:

Okay, I formally amended the stipulation about numbers: "Number requests will be best considered if an applicant takes participation up a notch--eg. hosting a giveaway, contributing to the subforum in an impressive manner, doing a (safe) stunt that jacks members up." Moose suggested this idea yesterday, and I like it. We want to crank this place up, and if people start doing some fun/crazy shit in here, folks are going to talk. Heck, giveaways don't have to be gigantic. I've seen cool giveaways where winners were excited to get a bundle of fatwood and some chert rock. Even better if the giveaway/contest involves getting out and using knives!
