    Please see post # 156 for winners and prizes :D


    With thanks to Ash, a new additional knife is also thrown in as an extra prize :) ( see below )

    OK..
    Well, I will try to keep this down to at least 20 paragraphs :D
    I havent had the chance to get outside for months to take photo's of my new knives etc...and I have been going crazy :eek:
    Massive changes in my life, I have moved out of my lovely old Bungalow that I have lived in for 28 years of my life, I now live in a suburb called Howick ( very close to Auckland City ) and I have lost my neat old background for my photos!
    But its al for the better, Sue who has blessed my life for 9 years now is now my Fiance, and we are getting married at the end of this year, and we now live together - her, me and my knives:D

    I miss this place and I havent the chance to participate too much because of the huge shift, and finishing work on my house, but this Giveaway is dedicated to a huge amount of people right here.
    Can I say that the people here just blow me away, and it just feels so right here, thank you for taking me in and under your wings with my lack of knowledge, and to everyone who I consider my friends who I wish I could name but the fear of offending if I missed just one name would be terrible.

    I have given away quite a few knives away, and I love doing this......my latest was to a work friend whom I established a very good relationship - his name is Alf, and he has just got out of hospital from a very bad motorbike accident, smashed hip, shoulder, all but one of his ribs..it goes on...this touched me very deeply as I lost my best mate of over 30 years in the same way, the day when he passed away while I was holding his hand will never leave me, so I wanted to send something special to Alf to give him a challenge.
    Alf is on his feet with the help of crutches, and he will receive my beautiful script Buck with sheath...I have challenged him to carry this knife everyday for 3 months, he should get the knife first thing next week!

    ANYWAY!!!!!.... this time my friends, you will have to involve someone else to help take your photo....because it will be YOU using your knife! after that, you can flood the thread as much as you want with as many pics of our lovely knives as you can, but you MUST have at least one pic of YOU using your knife.

    Rules.
    You must hang around in these here parts - 20 or more posts in this part of town I think lets you in :)

    1st prize..

    A way cool knife-and no........ you arent going to find out what it is :D, trust me, its a lovely knife! ( but it is a 1984 knife, and that year should give you a bit of a hint of who made it-as it is a significant part of their history :cool: )

    2nd Prize.
    I just bought this book, I first laid eyes on this magnificent book when fes ( festerfromenzed ) leant me his copy-Wow...this opened my eyes to this most famous brand...and I just have to share this with you, its an incredible book with stunning illustrations.

    IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ( 2nd hand )

    WRITTEN ON THE OCCASION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF VICTORINOX

    HARDCOVER / ILLUSTRATED .

    3rd Prize.
    New condition 2005 German made Bulldog Sodbuster, that will be sent from Ash's place....

    These prizes will be sent anywhere in the world, from good ol' New Zealand, and Ahses place :D

    Not an entry either Duncan, but I remember when you first started coming around these parts. You had a thirst for knowledge, and a true love for Traditional knives...
    You have contributed a lot to this forum, and I always look forward to your pictures. Your pictures are a joy to look at, and you have quite a collection now.

    Congrats on becoming engaged. It sounds like thing are going very well for you, and I am truly happy for you

    Congratulations on the engagement and the new home, Duncan! It'll be fun to see everyone and I'll post some photos soon... I don't have many photos of myself holding pocket knives... I do have a photo of myself taking a break from hiking but I'm eating and I look like a monkey so I'm not sharing that one! :p I own a copy of the Victorinox book--very nice.

    Btw, I'm enjoying the amber bone stockman! It's in my pocket. :)

    Duncan, I wish you every wifey, knifey, non-strifey,good lifey happiness. The pair of you.
    Now here I am pretending to whittle whilst try to take a photo of myself.
    I've been scratching away at this piece of Toona Australis with me Puma for a while and its evolving into this little Alfred the Great? character.
    Our Red Cedar is different to the American stuff. This one I planted in the front garden about 10 years ago.
    Very definitely an entry because I love getting free stuff off Kiwis.
    Cheers.[​IMG][​IMG]This is the tree in its denuded winter state-August should see it turn a deep scarlet then green .The mighty Port Kembla Steelworks in the distance.The large chimney to the left of the tree is around 18 storeys high although no longer in use.

    Hey Duncan
    If no-one else gets in on this I wouldn't feel right about a giveaway(largely assuming i was going to win).
    It would be a bit unfair-kinda like a game of union agin the All Blacks( no one else stands a chance).
    OR -could it be that everyone has seen my pic and given up hope? ho ho.
    cheers.

    Hi guys!

    Don´t worry Meako!

    I gonna take part in the GA. But my wife first needs to make a pic of me with a knife in hand.

    But - it´s hard to top your pic ;) :p

    EDIT POST:

    Alright guys - here we go... Mrs. Humppa took that pic!

    Mr. Humppa with two of his favorite activities - Eating and drinking

    I had a great meal about fivteen minutes ago. Dark bread, smoked pork (stored for about four weeks in smoke; we call it Geräuchertes), cheese and a fine half a litre of bavarian beer. I used a Case Medium Stockman CV Yellow Delrin.

    Thank you Duncan, for the chance and the great idea of this great GA.

    I hope to see more pics of the guys here using their knives.

    Kind regards
    Andi

    Hey Guys, I'll try to get a pic of myself "using" my knife soon.

    I'm in the midst of trying to get a new job and I haven't had much time for pics as of late, but I love these competitions. :thumbup:

    Viva Mexico - Jack.jpg Rodrigo's b'day May 2012 etc 004.jpg

    I'm in!

    This foto was taken by my wife for another thread, of me (no faces, dis' ain't facebook ;)) and my new "home carved & homemade" strop by yours truly!

    BTW, since you are a Campbell, I have a friend, a Campbell from NZ, who lives in Warragul, Victoria Australia. Long lost cousins no doubt. You've gotta be a good guy too! Thanks for the great thread and opportunity.

    That's my case slimline trapper to which I am giving the treatment.

    I guess it's not fair to not put a face to this so... suffer ya'll.
