THIS RAFFLE IS OVER:

And the winner, picked by Random.org, is number 50! I'll be sending a PM to get the address then the knife ships out Tuesday!

Thanks to all who participated!

---------------------------


Well, my first raffle didn't go so good. :whistling: So here's hoping this one goes a bit better! :wink:

First off, NO buy in! You want in, just post in thread! Only one entry per person, but still only 100 spots, though so get your post in fast! As a thank you and apology to the previous raffle participants, your names are already in (unless of course you don't want to be, in which case just PM me.) Which means that there are only about 80 slots left!

And NOW, on to the prize. I'm donating a BRAND NEW (well near enough, anyway) 210mm Blazen Western Deba. Seriously, I think this guy has been used to butcher a sweet potato AND THAT'S IT! Powdered steel core, magnetic saya, a friggin' BEAST... not sure what else I can say about this guy. For those interested, it's the same as the one here on JCK.

Maybe not as exciting as a Butch Harner Nakiri, but hopefully this will do be fun for all involved! If you've always wondered about a Deba, but could never justify buying one, here's your chance guys, so start posting!


While this is a no purchase necessary raffle, for those that are so inclined, I've included a link to a local charity in my area. I want to stress that there is no obligation to do ANYTHING with this info unless of course you want to. I can tell you that I know a few people involved and these guys do great work on a shoestring budget. If you like what you see, and you're from the area, it's just something to keep in mind.

Click on the link and then in the top right there is a button that says "Give to this Partner". You then can choose which partner to give to, in this case the eagles, and can choose a one time or monthly gift.

Yep, it's a western Deba, so it's actually a double bevel. Even the lefties will get some love!

Hey Avishar! I didn't know you'd made your way over here! Glad you could make use of it. Hopefully the knives are holding up equally as well, though for the life of me I can't remember what I sold you. Was that the HC? Man I miss that knife. Now THAT would have been a good raffle blade!
