Alright folks! We didn't have a ton of photos this time but I'm kinda glad since it was hard enough to pick winners as it was!

First place goes to JuPaul for this really great shot of her CPM REX 45 Manix. Love the composition, lighting, and that nice shiny reflective blade! This is calendar material IMO. ;)

Second place was hard, but in the end I had to go with this creative shot by abbazaba. I really like the contrasts here of the black blade/satin blade, dark bug vs. light bug, large and small. The steels are great too. :)

Honorable mentions to everyone else!
PStone, I love the Dogwood flower background. Nicely done!
AwayFromMySpydieHole, another very beautiful shot and knife. The teal and pink/purple flower colors really go together.
Rick, that is one creepy photo! :D Very creative and as others have said, great composition!

Great shots over the last couple of pages, everyone!

Rick, that Miami Vice Matriarch pic had me laughing - very nice work.

Here’s a minimalist one to keep things ticking over:

Thank you Connor! Correct it's their brass and bronze. Making scales for mules has become my obsession...well if you ask my wife :D

Thanks Connor. It came out creepier than I thought it would haha. A very cloudy day yesterday, then for about 5 minutes the sun came shining through just before sunset. I had just finished a workout in that room, where my knives are and decided to see what I could get.
That image needs to go on a "This house protected by Spyderco" sign for your front door! ;) :D
