    Hey, I picked the mud turtle and #10 too! But since I am only getting to be in the contest because Daniel is being generous, I would be happy to shift over to #11 (SpyderPhreak has #11 as their backup, but I didn't see anyone picking #7) If that doesn't work I will take #12.

    i'd take my one and only JK Bulldog. i love everything about this blade. the blade shape is perfect for piercing, skinning and has a good belly for slicing. the thickness at 5/32 leaves me free to baton or split bone without worry of breakage or failure. the contoured micarta slabs are comfortable with zero hotspots over extended use and offer a secure grip in wet conditions. the thumb ramp is nice and comfortable and the integrated finger guard offers just a little bit of extra security and allows you to choke up without compromising other grips. plus john's O1 stays SHARP as all get out. did i mention i just flat out love this knife? :p

    i'll take #18 (if available) thx for the chance!

    Very cool GAW, I'll play please.

    I would choose the GBH, it's my favorite JK I own so far! It's a handful of knife, and pretty sure it would handle most any task thrown at it.

    I'll take #14.

    Thanks!

    Daniel, a suggestion if I may? Perhaps it would help to tabulate the entries in your original post so folks know what numbers are still available? :thumbup:

    Never saw the Bulldog before. I really like the wide blade with the ffg and had a nice piercing tip. Very cool knife, handle looks comfortable as well.

    I would take my HUDSON Bay7 inch blade, because it will handle chopping wood, making feather sticks, help with making traps and build a shelter. I will ask for # 4 if available. IMG_0156.jpg

    Every time I see a pic of a GBH I think how "Randallish" it looks......I mean that as a huge compliment to John. Thanks for posting a pic to remind me I need one:D

    Thanks, I did not mean for this to get confusing. I figured it would be a fun thing to do, might bring in more orders for John and for a free brand new JK with sheath a little work back and forth looking at what numbers to pick from would be worth it. I will go through this entire thread later tonight or tomorrow and post whos got what number so everyone knows just by looking at my opening post. Hope the details and pics keep coming in. After seeing the pic of the Bull dog again I think that will be my next JK knife.
    Thanks again everyone!!!!

    What a cool theme for a GAW Daniel. :cool:
    I've decided I'm in after all and if I should win you can send the knife to Grunt Soldier!!
    I'm diggin' seeing all the JKs posted, any one of which I would be happy with in the scenario you describe. :thumbup:(they are JKs after all)

    Out of all my JKs and for the scenario you describe with the limited items allowed I'd have to go with the Tool.
    I designed it as my go to all rounder survival/bushwacker after all.
    It has a 5 inch saber ground blade vs the usual 4" that bushwhackers like, giving me a little more tip to pound on in splitting or cross batoning.
    I wanted the 5 inches for that little bit of extra penetration in defense against the unlikely event of a cougar attack also.
    A durable G10 and Micarta handle to withstand the harshest of elements.
    A rounded spine for limiting damage to a baton and for hand comfort if using as a draw knife.
    And an exposed tang for pounding on if needed.
    I originally had John put a half round notch in the exposed tang but I found it too awkward to use so I ground it down flat.:eek::rolleyes:

    I kinda like Peters idea of a hawk too.
    They'll chop and do finer work.
    Wish I still had mine.

    I'll take poor ol' #20 since no one else wants it.

    Good Luck everybody!:)
