    What a beautiful family, every time I look at those knives they look better. Really something spectacular.

    I think a get together is a great idea, even if I couldn't be there (I live in France you see). Not that I expect to be in the draw, since I only came in for the closing stages, but I would really like to get a closer look at those knives.

    Will all who took part in the designing of the knife be in the draw or just those present at the fair, I have planned to go but all depends on the weather, we shall wait and see.

    I imagine its at Davy's discretion.
    Personnaly I think a list should formed from this thread and used as a basis for the raffle.
    Reasoning being, it's not fair if somebody who helped alot can't make it.
    Nor it is fair if somebody who didn't help at all turns up and sticks his name in.

    Above all, i'm sure what ever Davy chooses will be fair and transparent

    Who's in the draw?
    Each person who participates in the design thread is entered into a Raffle. I will draw a name from a hat at the end of the build and the winner will receive the original knife.

    I said that I would come up with a couple of rules for this competition so here they are.
    1. All normal forum rules apply
    2. Try to enjoy it. At the end of the day it's only a project to try to design a good useable knife. We may fail miserably but let's give it a fair and proper go.
    3. If you are lucky enough to win the knife then it is automatically assumed that you are capable of owning and using it.
    4. By taking part in the competition you agree that I, anyone associated with this competition or any member or affiliate of Boards.ie will not be responsible or held liable for any damage or injury caused while using the knife.
    5. Anyone can take part in the design thread but you MUST be over 18 years of age to win the knife. You will be asked to prove this if you win.
    6. Try to stay on topic
    7. Do not post negative comments about other members ideas or suggestions. They won't help with the build and you will find yourself eliminated from the competition.
    8. Try to keep it real, I have only 2 hands and a limited number of supplies and tools. I will do my best to build a quality knife but I'm not capable of building a light sabre.
    9. Each person who posts a valid post in the thread is automatically entered in the competition. I decide wich posts are valid.
    10. Each valid post constitutes an additional entry. So the more you contribute the more chances you have of winning.
    11. Flooding of posts just to increase your chances of winning will get you eliminated so don't bother (Also see rule 6)
    12. Names of contributors wil be put in a hat at the end of the build and one lucky winner will be drawn. The winner receives the original knife.
    13. There will probably be more rules :D but I hope it's straight forward enough.
    Enjoy youselves

    Regards

    Davy

    I didn't want to comment on the design part of this thread as I don't really have a use for a knife like this (at least not as much as the guys here could claim) so I've stayed quiet and read with interest as things progressed.

    I would just like to thank Davy for involving everyone in what is (to my mind) thread of the year if not the decade on this hunting and shooting forum.

    The knives are quite spectacular and the process was fascinating. Thanks Davy for dedicating so much time and effort to this.

    And good luck lads with the draw. :D

    No

    This thread should be made a STICKY

    This is too good a thread to slip into the bowls of the forum.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 315 ✭✭ pajero2005

    I think this thread won't be sinking anytime soon anyway, and from what I hear of the publicity it's generated (go on Davy, tell 'em :D ), it's going to be remembered for quite a long time!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 315 ✭✭ pajero2005


    Do tell Davy.......

    P.S. I've a nice rib-eye steak with your name on it for the BBQ;)

    Doh. Sorry Davy, didn't realise there was an embargo. Nonetheless, well earned, and when the time's right...

    Very curious. If it means something good for Davy (big business, publicity, whatever) then it's well deserved.

    It would be even more well deserved though if you would answer my PM Davy :)

    Thanks

    The all-new Irish National Country Fair will be staged at Ballinlough Castle......

    Anybody else disappointed with the “all-new Irish National Country Fair”.. as I found me self wondering around looking for anything resembling a Hard Case for my baby, No Hard Case. No Scopes, No Rifles, and the prices, the purpose of going to a “Fair” was always to get a bargain, something cheaper than the shop, not too pay extra for the joy of been pissed on in the middle of a field….
    And yes, I feel much better after that, so I’m looking forward to Birr, hope that some of the traders will read the above.
    Cheers for the info on the new 3yr license very informative.
    Newbeeeeeee.
