    Hey KD,

    This is what I have so far.

    I've been wanting a few special projects a year, something that I can exercise a bit more creativity with.
    Each of these knives and or accessories will have my normal Haburn mark, my signature mark (opposite blade side), and have a serial number so they are easily ID'd with the year build and sequence in that year.
    The number of projects will be capped to three a year, but with the schedule I typically keep it will most likely be one or two a year.
    10% of the sale price will go to a charity, which I am still looking for. Most likely something that benefits children. I am open to suggestions.
    I am hoping to have the first piece finished before summer.
    Sales will be through a lottery.
    Please post any questions.

    Thanks!!

    Not sure as I haven't gotten them tested. I'm going to forge them in the san mai and use 52100 for the core.

    Cool idea to use rods.
    Porsche for performance (laser); MOPAR for muscle (workhorse)?

    I like the idea, it's a good thought. Maybe MOPAR for beasty slicer and fork.

    Really cool idea...How does one become part of this lottery to purchase? How will the lottery work?

    I'm still working through the details for this one, but most likely:
    -Lottery tickets will be on my website for one dollar, one ticket per customer.
    -The tickets will be available for purchase for a few days
    -The winner of the drawing will have 24 hours to complete the purchase

    Can you sell enough $1.00 tickets limited to one per customer
    to make it worthwhile?
