    Bumpity boo.

    I would through my buddy that just finished his Navy basic in the ring but he will be better served by a spyderco Salt 1. He will be a mechanic on a Seahawk Helo in San Diego for a while.

    Soooo...just give it to DblTap. :)

    Alright, well as promised it's 3-23 and I am announcing the winner.

    There was a great list of candidates that all had a pretty good shot until creightonfcb came forward with his candidate(s). After several days of emailing back and forth to the other side of the planet I was given a very worthy candidate that I couldn't pass up. A young airmen that will remain anonymous for his own safety who is married and deploying for the first time to Afghanistan but can't possibly afford a Busse is the winner of the Boss Jack/Sheath/fire starter. Having been in that exact same type of situation I know what he is going through now and in the near future.

    Thanks to the generosity of two other Hogs, here is exactly what he will be receiving:

    I just feel bad that I can't give something to all of the 13 guys he narrowed it down to of the many deploying soon, but I am happy to know the blade will see military service in a combat environment. I hope it helps it's new owner come home safe to his family.

    To the rest of the candidates, I am sorry to disappoint you but I truly hope you understand why I went this direction.

    If I receive any pics that aren't of a safety compromising sort and I have permission, I will post them when I receive them. Otherwise I will leave it up to either creightonfcb or the actual recipient to post them.

    Thank you to all who posted! :D

    Gratz to the winner. Sadly, I didn't see this thread until today. Would have liked to enter my army buddy who will be deployed to Afghanistan in the next 90 days. At any rate, thanks again for the give away.

    As an update....

    Knife recived and deliverd! Will post a pic tonight, as I cannot do it here at work.... On behalf of the lucky winner, Heartfelt thanks and gratitude were expresed, as well as amazement that there were people in the world willing to do something like this for someone that they have never ment. When asked how he would use it, he told me that it would be carried every day as part of his E & E kit. Before this he had never even heard of Busse knives, but I know we have a convert!!
