    Yep, it's time. My friends here have bought alot of knives from me, but this is open to everyone.

    This is a small skinner that I made a while back, and when I went to peen the lanyard tubing it cracked the handle material. This knife will be just as strong as any other since the handle material is silver/black Dymondwood, but I cannot sell it so someone might as well get a free knife. I'll post pics later.

    I'm not sure how to go about this - we have 135 members and I'm tempted to just pick a number but I'd rather pick an active member rather than someone who registered and never posts.

    Tell you what - pick a number between 1 and 100 and I'll pick a number in a few days. If you pick a number you're active enough for me! Winner will be closest without going over.

    Have fun, and oh yea TLynn will get 13. [winkthumb]

    That's super cool Valkman! [winkthumb]

    I'll take 73, (Wife picked it so it'll be hers if I win)
    We get some folks here that come in every few days so leave it up for at least 3, maybe 5...

    You have a pic?

    A chance at a new skinner is very cool - especially a custom!

    My # choice is 5.

    I looked at that knife and it isn't even good enough to give away, so here's another one. This is a small utility with a 2 1/2" blade of O1 tool steel, G10 handle and mosaic pins. It also has a custom lanyard made by our own Cousin Jack and is adjustable to fit your wrist.

    I'll spruce it up and make some Kydex for it for the weiner. I mean winner. [ROFL]

    Mighty nice Don! (I love mine in orange-orange!) I usually go with my ID number but that's 104... So I'll subtract my age and pick 59! :D

    This is a one-of-a-kind, one that I made but didn't make it into a model.

    It had the same problem your second small skinner did - I went too thin at the back of the blade and now it flops back and forth when you sharpen it. Ugh.
