I'll add my thanks to @Eli Chaps for all this fun. I tried to come up with an original letter use each time and got all the way to X before getting beaten to anything credible I could come up with, having to duplicate Manix XL. I also tried not to use the same knife twice, but managed to slip up a couple times along the way. I've been prepping for Round Two and will not use the same knife twice (per rule) nor a knife or letter use of mine from Round One. That's about as much self-discipline you'll get out of this Knife Knut who's actually wondered about making a purchase or two to fill in empty letter spots. Eli, will we have a new thread for the next round or just roll this one over?
