this is a fantastic giveaway and very generous of you.
This is not an entry though; I'll leave the chance to those who will enjoy such a knife more than I would...yet I wanted to thank you anyway
Thank you for the opportunity. I will also agree to ship overseas to any overseas winner on my dime (assuming that is okay).
I do not have a lobster pattern knife. Nor, do I have a pearl handled knife. I have always wanted one. I have seen the pictures you post and marveled at the beauty and function. For me, though, the real reason I want one is practicality. I am a lawyer and work in an office. Most of my weekend work is spent around the house or doing things with my kids. I am active in my sons Cub Scout Pack and coach my daughter's soccer team. I have come to learn that I don't need a large knife on a daily basis. Frankly, even pulling out knives larger than a Conductor can set some people on edge. I use knives every day on my, copy paper boxes, at Scouts, trimming straws, trimming cords on soccer socks (amazing how they get frayed), etc. The kids love that I have a knife handy and appreciate that I teach them knife safety. Some clients, though...well, you know how it is.
Anyway, thanks for the opportunity. I hope the winner gets excellent use out of it.
Charles - I don't own any lobsters, but you've inspired me to learn more about them. That said, this isn't an entry as I've already won a couple GAWs this year, and someone else should have my chance. Thanks for the great give away, and good luck to everyone.
Please allow me to enter. If I should have a knife similar to the one shown, it will be given as a gift to a high school girl in the family. The tools are good for general use, and the mother of pearl scales are the right kind of elegance for young lady. Very generous.
