    Default Contest over: Man's best friend "give away"

    We have a winner. PM sent

    Ah 'tis springtime, when young men's fancies turn to bushcraft.

    I was outside at sunrise in deep thought listening to birds chirping when I asked, "What would Turley knives be called if Iz had named them after dog breeds instead of rivers?"

    Instead of the Gasconade that I wait ever so patiently for, I would have named it the Labrador Retriever knife.

    Rugged
    Great companion and friend
    Always a popular model

    Example:

    Sooooo, I will give away the following:

    Turley #23 Silver Creek psk (1 year old and mint condition)
    Alaskan Bear Breath mints tin can (similar to Altoids can)
    Heavy duty sewing needles for repair or leatherwork.
    Maybe some other junk that I find laying around.

    To enter the contest, name a Turley model after a dog breed and say I'm in.

    You need to be a Turley dude or dudette (fan).

    By the way, this psk is a Miniature Pinscher.

    The Model #22 Z-Sere would be the Rhodesian Ridgeback. Large, rugged and protective. Oh, and uncommon too!

    Plus I really want both !

    Im in.

    The Model #30 Arghandab River neck knife. Is a pitbull.
    Its not big, or bulky.
    It is lean, and wirey,
    a joy to own,
    loyal to its owner,
    but its bite is much worse than it bark.
    Something witty.

    Well, I'd have to say the Mississippi would be a "great dane" -- to me.

    Until you get around it...you think it's too big...but then it "shrinks" when you get used to it!

    Our neighbor has a 2 year old Great Dane...they say they are totally used to the little horse that lives in their house now!


    I'm in. thanks for the chance!

    I'm in.

    The #23 Silver Creek I'll make a tribute to my wife's childhood dog that just passed.

    #23 Miniature Dachshund

    -Small, Fits in compact spaces
    -Can almost always have it with you
    -Still has a mean bite
    -Designed for chasing badgers out of holes. Okay, I don't think Turley had that part in mind.

    Fun thread, I'm sure Iz is loving this, haha.

    Hahaha. Great thread idea and great give away, Mr Jefe. My favorite dog in the world is a black lab, I had a good one when I was a kid. Great pic for the name, man.
    Thanks for all your generosity!

    Ok I'm in, here's mine:

    Model #19 Soldier River -> German Shepherd

    It's a great worker, strong, loyal and dependable - plus it's clever and easy to work with.

    Bonus is the #19 doesn't leave dog hair all over my couch and fleece jackets
