    OK, instead of tossing it around, let's just vote on accessorizing...

    If a back label is chosen, it will have to be in a 2" x 4" format delivered to and approved by GEC. Will be provided my meako. Will probably add a buck or two. We can leave them off if desired, but the money is in the setup - so you would still pay for them if approved.

    If a button is chosen, GEC will produce them with their own artwork. Will add less than a buck.

    No changing vote; pick your poison the first time.

    I'm all for buttons, and Meako just has to add some official text this year. It would be a travesty not to include a bit of his delightful prose.

    Meako. Pin too, but that will be one interesting label.

    Who are the seven sticks-in-the-mud who voted "None"? (Just kidding. I support a fully democratic process, and everyone should vote however they like. But really? "None"? :confused: ;) :D)

    I could take or leave the button, but I voted both anyways... and we just have to have a back label written by @meako! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Thank Providence for another poll.

    Can we just make sure the pointy part on any pin is not too sharp............

    @meako promised 50 words or less. I think you should use as many words as you like... Will you promise to make at least every 3rd word something I can understand?? :p

    Voted yes for both!

    Edit: You also have to promise not to use any of your avatar pictures on the back label! They kind of freak me out sometimes like you're staring at me...

    I'll admit it, I'm one of the naysayers. While I love me a good @meako story as much as the next guy, and quite frequently laugh out loud reading them, for me both the tube and pin add nothing to the knife. Once the knife leaves the tube, it'll never be used or seen again, so it has no value to me.

    Plus, I figured the meako story would win in a landslide anyway.

    We can use our new BF knife to "cut the drivel".

    Voted both. It's always about the knife, but for a few extra $, the cherry on top is well worth it.

    I voted for the pin only. I appreciate Meako’s views when he’s talking about knives but the rest is just rambling to me that doesn’t make sense. Maybe that’s the appeal to others though? No offense meant, just stating my opinion.

    I voted label and button. Knife comes around once a year so why not swim in the deep end?

    First vote I have made since the GEC with sheepsfoot was chosen. I just had no real connection with it other than it being the BF knife, so I let everyone else set the datails and just watched..... man its going to be a stunner for sure, good job guys it was worth all the cussin and fussin!
    But this vote.... I had to chime in for Meako to do the label, his bard like commentary has been one of the highlights of the process. Yes to both!
