    Sorry for the delay, folks! Summer’s been real busy here, but let’s get on with it!

    So much traditional goodness arrived at my door a couple weeks ago, looking like this:
    F01C759E-A0EC-4B80-9443-FFCC6BCEAF04.jpeg

    It was a lot of fun checking out each knife and seeing what people had passed along. Almost every knife tempted me in some way, but I tried to really limit my selection. Here is what I’m keeping:
    DD71046C-8E5B-41E7-8748-0D11D965A301.jpeg
    I’ve never owned a 112 or large sodbuster - though I’m familiar with their siblings - so I felt like it was the right time to give them some further attention. And the small Camillus stockman grabbed my attention right away.

    Now, for the additions:
    8A8CF543-4670-40E7-B979-D253C8A4AAB1.jpeg
    Hopefully I am at least matching in terms of value and variety. Included are a Hammer pen knife, a Boker Barlow, a Kabar fixed blade, a small Buck Whittler, an alox SAK classic, and a NIB Case Swayback Gent.

    If you were in on the previous rounds, I’ll try to make sure you are in on this run. I’ll keep a running list below. If you’re not on the list, and want to be in, let me know!

    I’ll draw the next winner on Thursday, August 1st.

    I’m glad you’re taking my Buck. You’re putting in a great selection, and I’m tempted, but please delete my name from the draw. It’s someone else’s turn to win. I hope lots more will join the fun!

    So I'm curious and confused about the rules and structure of this. This is another reminder that I need to re-up my membership.

    The Buck was a no-brained for me - thanks for passing it along! I figured it was probably too early for you and 315, but added you just in case. I’ll remove you, but let me know if you change your mind!

    You got it. Good luck!

    Say that you’re in to be entered. If you win, the box of knives will be sent to you. Take what interests you. Add any knives you have at home that you’d like to pass along. Host the next round GAW.

    Great additions Mike. I won one of the original GAW's so not an entry. It's good to see it rolling along.

    How about this. Leave me in the draw, if I win take my position that you have me numbered at at divide it into the total number of posts in this thread. The person that has the number, rounded up or down gets the box. If for some weird reason it ends up being me again let me know ASAP so I can run out and buy a lottery ticketo_O Then multiple it by 3 and divide by 2 for the next winner...:confused::confused: If we can’t figure out the math, we will ask @5K Qs to come out of retirement and help us out!!!

    Sounds like you guys have it under control! :thumbsup::thumbsup::D I'm leaving for vacation August 3, so if you want me to help (and can afford my consulting fees, including per diem), don't waste any time after the drawing if @315 wins.

    Mike, congrats on your win of Round 3 of the reboot. :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    You chose some fine prizes and made desirable additions!

    Thanks for these links, too! :):cool::cool: At one time, I tried to keep links updated to the various rounds of the original "never-ending GAW". But I didn't do it for every round, and the names people gave to the threads changed from one round to the next, and eventually the thread titles didn't always contain the round number, so it became difficult to search for all the relevant threads.

    I'd encourage winners to include round numbers in the titles when they start a new thread for the next round.

    It was a bit difficult to track down the original thread! It was finding your thread that eventually led me to it!

    Thank you , I'm certainly happy to have done it.
    It allows people to try different knives, have gives unwanted knives a new home, and showcases the generosity of the porch.
