Hello and good day KKF! The weather has finally cooled down here and we are making some progress in the shop again and enjoying the break from the high heat and humidity. I hope you are all doing well.

Today, after many requests I am testing a NEW way for you Knife Knuts to get a custom Triple H Kitchen knife.. By offering a KKF "Members only" AUCTION!

If this goes well. I will offer a knife on auction again. And I expect other vendors may follow suit and post auction threads as well. :D

I have ran this past the Mods and owner am happy to say.. They gave me the green light to try this. BUT.. All bids through PM will be reviewed by the owner of this forum. So transparency and honesty is first and foremost. I will forward a message containing the bid history to Austin during this auction. As they are received. Which should keep this straight.


Here is how it will work. or THE RULES.. Please read and follow the rules so there is no problems and or issues with the STAFF here at KKF And we can continue to have more auctions and fun!

To BID you must be a KKF member, To place a bid, you can post it into the thread. OR send it through PM if you prefer to remain anonymous. To bid on PM lets keep this simple. Just put your bid amount in the subject line and send. And I will update the thread and Austin as PM bids come in.

The starting bid is 1.00 and is a NO RESERVE auction.

The minimum bid increment is 10.00

The auction will close Sunday the 28th at 6pm EST. Unless there is a bid within the last 5 minutes of the auction. In the event this happens. The close time for the auction will extended 15 minutes. Until the final bid is in play for 15 minutes. I will closely monitor the end of the auction and use time stamps on any posts or PM's to determine the time a bid was placed. Then, I will mark it sold. And post the final sale price.

The winning bidder must pay within 24 hours of the close of the auction. I will send you a PayPal invoice once the auction ends. Shipping is included in the final price world wide.

In the event, that payment is not received within 24 hrs. The next highest bidder will have option to buy at there last bid amount.



Not so small print.. Your bid is a agreement to complete the sale, and I expect nothing but the best from this group, or I wouldn't even think about doing this auction.

Lets have some fun, no rock throwing, or biting allowed! Yet the occasional ball kicks are OK! :)

But by all means Bid and bid as often as you like. :) Have fun!






Im going to clean out my inbox. and then will post images and specs of the knife and that post will be the beginning time of this auction.

Thanks and God Bless
Randy, HHH Knives

Should rename thread to KKF deep pockets grabathon! :stinker: In all seriousness, gorgeous knife, but I had a hunch this would quickly become beyond reach! Good luck with auction!

I'm just going to keep committing in this thread it seems. kind of surprised the current bid is where it's at andmust say very surprised it's only at 3 pages! Shameless plug here: having one of Randy's knives myself I can easily say his work kicks butt!

The actual price its going for would be sufficient to justify the handle alone: the craftmanship, material, design and attention to detail is simply awe inspiring. If you consider the blade as well and who made it... Please close this &$@^#* auction soon and be done with it :beatinghead:

Thanks to all who bid, commented and or just joined us to view the action. I hope to be able to do this again some time. And like Chewie, "Hope this becomes a thing" here on KKF.

To Austin and the mod team here on KKF Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to give this a try. I think it was a success on many levels.

I have said it many time. and will say it again KKF is the best place on the net. You guys are really what make this place as awesome as it is. That and all the sharp and pointy stuff!! But mainly its the people! God Bless YA!
