    Contest - Win a Surprise WA Re-handle

    First, the prize.
    Winner gets to have the knife they enter in the contest re-handled.
    This for WA style handle only.
    I will provide some of my very best stabilized wood and Mike Henry will do the hard part.
    He will make the handle and fit it to your knife.

    The surprise part is you won't know the materials and what the handle will look like until it is completed and you receive it back. It won't be anything weird. I promise it will be something you will be proud of.
    I will provide some of my very best handle material and Mike will do his best work.
    The surprise will be a good one.

    To enter the contest
    Post a photo and description of the knife you would like to have re-handled. WA style only!
    This is your entry into the contest so make sure your photo and description are made in one post.

    On the afternoon of October 29th (my birthday) the winner will be selected.
    I will use a random number generator to select the winner.
    If there are 55 posts made entering the contest, I will give the random number generator that or whatever the number is.
    It will select a number between one and the final post number.
    Whatever post number matches that number is the winner.

    The contest winner will need to ship their knife to Mike and I will send him the handle materials.
    Mike will make the handle and install it on the knife and then send it back to the winner.
    When the winner receives their re-handled knife back they will need to take photos and post them here for the rest of us to see. Nobody else will know what has been done until you post your photos.

    Be sure to post a photo of the actual knife you are entering in the contest.
    The value of the re-handle will fairly substantial so be sure to enter a knife you really like.
    This will not be a rush job so be prepared to be without your knife for a matter of weeks.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Quick question - does the funky cleaver handle on a CCK count as a Wa? Lol.

    We are going to have to get Mike's input on that, since he will be doing the work.

    I am a wood guy, what do I know.
    Vertigo, you can enter your cleaver.
    Now enter your photos everyone.
    That is except Spike. He fed his camera to his dog, right before he set up the motorcycle springboard so his dog can get over the fence easier.

    Great idea for a giveaway!

    Unfortunately, I'm fresh out of knives with stock wa handles.

    Awfully generous of you, Mark. I look forward to seeing what you and Mike come up with for a handle.
