Knife Raffle

So, my idea was approved by the powers that be, so heres to paying forward the good fortune! As you can tell by the title, im giving away a knife to the lucky winner

This knife, specifically. Rosewood handle scales (courtesy of our own WoodNThings), acid-washed 1084 steel blade, black leather sheath. If you wanna enter, just leave a comment on the thread. Come this Friday (10/21/2016) ill plug the total post count into a random number generator, whoever makes the post corresponding to what the generator spits out wins the knife. No catches, this isnt an advertisement, you dont even need to pay shipping. Just my special way of saying thanks to everybody in this awesome community.

Oh, and lets keep it to one comment/entry per person, please? If someone starts spamming comments, then i gotta go through and make a list of all the names and pick on out of a hat instead of just picking a number and its just a mess. Cheers!
BigJim and shoot summ like this.

I like those Rosewood handles...heh heh

Nice work on the knife and the sheath looks great also. Great Idea, but you really didn't have to do this. Big creds to Shoot Summ for his donation as well.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specfic. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo

Great looking knife. Functional addition to anyone's collection, or a beautiful first knife to a lucky winner.
Nice work, Epic.

Epic,
You do nice work. Much more involved than many may think. Steel work, wood work, and leather work combined for an heirloom quality keepsake. You are very generous with your offer.
Jim

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

I agree. You say it is acid washed. Does this mean that the steel is multi layered like Japanese steel? Don't put me in the raffle. Too many problems getting it to UK and by all the customs etc.

Not quite no. The steel was dipped into acid to discolor it, then tossed in a tumbler with some glass beads to give it the mottled appearance. Gives it a little character, ya know?

The community here is awesome, no doubt about that. Like i mentioned, what sparked this is someone else doing me a massive favor, I just wanted to pay it forward

I dunno, I'd wager most of the guys around here know how involved it is, ive done a few build-alongs here. Really though it's more monotonous than involved

Glad you got some use out of the light box write-up. That's actually become one of my handiest projects!

As a sign that my luck has finally turned, this might happen:

It was a Wednesday afternoon around 2:00PM when I walked across my yard to the postbox to retrieve my daily mail. And there it was. In a padded envelope was the rosewood handled knife I had recently won. I opened the package and removed the knife from the sheath, turning it around in my hand and letting the light thru the giant oak tree catch it at every angle. Suddenly from behind me came the brain-tightening groan of a zombie advancing on me at surprising speed. Luckily a weapon of strength and resolve was already in my hand and I whirled around and struck the blade into the skull - without a second to spare. The zombie collapsed in the street and didn't even have a twitch left in it's deadweight body.

"Nice knife", I said to no-one in particular. "Nice."

-Rick
