    Well it's time to move these on down the line. After much soul searching I've taken three of the last offering; the Art Ullis Salmon Knife, an old IXL, and a Rough Ryder wharncliff which I'm quiet impressed with. It's not up to GEC in fit and finish, but I like the size and it's been in my pocket the last 2 days now.

    For those just joining the premise is simple, add your name to the list and if you win the box comes to you. Take what you want, add what you can. But you have to promise to move the box on. (This thread got derailed once by someone winning and then disappearing.)

    Please don't join if you're looking to score for retail, think of this as the chance to try something new, or add to a collection. (I got lucky and did both!) Likewise there's no requirement you add or subtract set numbers, this is best continued in the spirit of selflessness.

    Those currently on the list:
    1. @frontiertom
    2. @CVamberbonehead
    3. @JTB_5
    4. @Ernie1980
    5. @akguy59
    6. @JupiterPaladin
    7. @Sleepereaper
    8. @Nature Boy
    9. @seas165
    10. @rockgolfer
    11. @cbach8tw
    12. @PirateSeulb

    I've gone and moved everything into a set rate USPS box, so that should eliminate any issues over weight, and room, plus it ensures tracking and steady delivery (at least within the USA. My apologies to those outside.)

    So, here's what's headed to the next contestant:

    A nice mix of different styles and blades. (I'd have kept the Boy Scout Whittler if I didn't already have one.)

    Along with some Swiss Army types and a variety of peanut sized stuff. That Hobo is way too cute...
    [​IMG]

    Of course there had to be Stockman and Trapper patterns, a couple of these really tempted me.

    All of the above were in when the box arrived at my place. Those below I'm adding. I couldn't find a machete that would fit in the box, but this Condor chopper should be a good substitute. Likewise the Cold Steel Kobun is like new; it's been gathering dust since it came back from a trip to the sandbox.

    I mentioned that I'd try to add patterns not already in the collection, so these should do that. The AnkerMesser set are new from a few years back and will give someone the chance to try the different main blade types. The Hammer Brand English Jack is Chinese made, and missing the glued in shield, but unused. And since there was no Congress, and it's my favorite pattern I've added a mint Camillius 91.

    I'm going to let this run a week. Next Sunday night I'll pull the name and try to get it out the following Monday.

    I see a couple in the mix I think would be pretty cool to have.
    However, funds are really tight this year, (about $40 a month after rent) and I have less than zero idea were the postal is in this town/village, so I'm still out/not an entry.
    Good luck to all who enter. :)

    Put me in coach, thanks.
    That RR is a very good knife to use, and that messer box is a very cool addition. @afishhunter what you got your eye on?

    I wonder how many people would have been interested in this box if it contained a GEC ?

    They certainly seem to be the most popular around here, and whenever theres a giveaway for one theres at least 5 pages of entries but things like this see much less traffic :eek:

    I don't get it, so many possibilities here to choose from.
    I guess if you already have too many knives, but theres always bound to be something you haven't tried yet.

    It seems that I don't have PM privileges as an nonpaying member. Can I post my address here in the open forum without violating any rules?

    OK, the box is on it's way. Cost of shipping via USPS Flat Rate medium with $400 insurance was $27. I figure that's pretty good, since it was a hefty package.

    akguy59 has the tracking number and should have the box Saturday, so keep your eye's out...
