    *****We Have a WINNER - Congrats to woodsyone!!*****

    I'm looking to update my logo and have come up with several versions.


    • "A" is my standard logo (no change - most conservative option :D) The others below are 10% smaller.
    • "B" adds a little more *punch* by making the "K" black and adding a ring - looks kinda like a brand
    • "C" has the ring and the "K's" removed for a more "edgy" :p, asymmetrical look.
    • "D" retains the minimalist look of my standard logo and adds a ring around it - maximum *punch*

    Just let me know which logo(s) you like - multiple votes allowed!

    Here's an example of the knife you win:

    Voted c. Really like the looks of that one!

    Awesome little knives also. Ty for the chance :)

    After looking at the logos again for a few mins, JUST use the "k" from c on smaller blades or if u just want to keep it simple. That k looks the best IMO.

    I'd go with B. Clean design, excellent choice of font (opinion derived from several decades of publishing:eek:), just fits the design and concept of the knife.

    I love the idea of having your name attached to the knife and it takes up less space than choice B. To me, choice C is the most visually pleasing. When I look at choice C I see the K as having the hilts of 4 knives coming together, where with the other three I do not see that as much. Good luck with making your decision. They all really do look great.

    I prefer B because it's easily legible. Often companies will pick a fancy logo because they already know what it means, so it's obvious to them. As a person who is seeing the logos for the first time, I was drawn to B because I could tell instantly what it was. The K is circled so you know exactly what it is, and the name is very legible. With the one below it, someone could read it as "Oster Nives". I vote for B.

    I've always liked your current logo, I'm one of those people who like things that I can immediately identify/relate with/to like logos, a great example is my avatar, it's been the same for many years, people see it and know it's me, I'm really identifiable.

    That's why I like your original logo,I recognize it on even the blurriest far away picture, I know it's your knife right away.
    The other logos are nice and I'm sure what ever gets chosen will be instantly identifiable as yours...

    A, its clean, crisp, and I like the cut-out concept. B is my next-favorite.

    The flares in C & D suggest burrs, rather than the endcap on a kukri hilt.

    Depends on the knife I guess, might be good to have two versions for different kind of knives. I selected C as main one :)
