holidays giveaway, yet another....

Postby denn » Sun Dec 24, 2006 8:30 am

it almost gets boring doesn't it?

the main-prize is THIS book by Leonard Lee (from Lee Valley K&T), The complete guide to sharpneing. it's almost NIB, hardly read and covers everything from metallurgy, woodworking, sharpening equipment and abrasives to sharpening knives, chisels, axes, drillbits, scissors, shovels, bread-knives, nailhammers, screwdrivers and even tweezers, everything gets mentioned.......


an additional spydie-review/-magazine/catalog will also be included in the prize.

the runner-up(s) will receive interesting reading, whether a catalog, review or magazine, about knives, spyderco in particular ofcourse.

y'all know the drill. it's 'pick a number'-style.

pick a number between 0 and 3000. the closest to the number will be #1, the 2nd and other closests will be the runner-ups.

anyone who likes the book, or the other fun stuff, join in and cast your number! good luck! :)


*** contest will be open for entries until january 5th, give or take a day or two ***
