    WE HAVE WINNERS!

    The winners in the Great Bestest Handle Giveaway Contest Thingy have been selected. Before I announce the winners though, I'd like to take a minute to explain the selection process.

    In the past, many of the people who have run contests on this forum have used a random number generator to select the winners. I've always thought that this was an excellent way to do this. I, of course, didn't do it that way, mainly because I didn't want to go to the effort of learning how to do it. Instead I went with a more...shall we say 'organic', method.

    First, using Excel and a box cutter, I printed out the post numbers of all the valid entries on little paper squares.

    Then I wadded them up into little balls (you wouldn't believe how stressful this can be on your fingers...the sacrifices I make )

    I then took the little wads of paper to an impartial and disinterested judge. Namely my cat Loki. Ain't gonna find a more disinterested judge then that.

    This is Loki picking the first place winner (that wad of paper at the bottom of the photo).

    Loki then proceded to pick 17 more winning numbers before he got bored, and wandered off to find something to kill. This is him with all the winning numbers.

    And now, the winners are...

    1st prize of two handles, including mounting, goes to rdwng303.

    2nd prize of one handle, including mounting, goes to Bill13.

    3rd prize of one handle goes to strumke.

    Winners of the secondary contest will be announced after the primary winners have chosen their handles.

    Mahalo to everyone who entered,
    Mikey

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Congrats to the winners. Thanks, again, for doing this Mikey!
    Good food is essential, where knives are an integral part of the process.

    Not the worst problem to have...
