    Awww. now that the striker piqued my "I want it" instinct, I might have to look into buying one!

    Awesome. I'm claiming this! I have been getting set up with both maxpedition and condor gear. These items will go good with what I have now!

    I offer up another of my mystery packages! :) For now it will remain a mystery, but since things are moving slow here, I'll put pics up if it doesn't get claimed right away!

    Will contain:
    Something that cuts.
    Something to build a fire with.
    Something to cook with.
    Something to cook.
    And other stuff too. I like giving things away and I'm constantly gathering up loot to throw in.

    I'll put a pic of one of the items up this evening.

    Also, I think it helps to keep things going here if recipients maybe put some pics up when they receive their packages? I know that I will from now on! :)

    My offer. One Svord Pesant knife and a set of burl/spalted pieces of what I believe to be maple for a custom set of scales. This is a project that's been sitting around too long. Someone else will enjoy it and get it done.

    Full disclosure. The wood is NOT stabilized. The pieces don't lay perfectly flat they rock on a flat surface slightly. That said cut the scales close to size and a little work sanding on a flat surface will pretty easily solve that.

    Must be 18+ or have parental consent. I'll ship wherever.

    Hahaha, I got over myself and got it sharp today. Too much advice can be dizzying. Use a light touch, push harder, push lighter, use a mousepad, wrong sandpaper. I'm already subscribed to using it hard and have had it out. So I said F@&$ it. I laid some sandpaper on the edge of the bench. Pushed HARD on it through the grits and stropped it like a red headed step child.

    Thanks for claiming my mystery package. As a side note, it brings good karma to gift a Turley knife to someone who sends a mystery gift to you! :) Especially such a dangerous one as what you show in the pics. Why, a guy could cut himself with that one. That's pretty sharp looking. :)

    I'll send tracking info to you when I get the label done. :)

    That's fine with me. Post your offer and send me your address. Note that I will do my best to ship it quickly: apparently post office workers work less hours than I do... At worse, I can get it shipped on Saturday (hopefully on Wednesday).

    Update:
    I claimed @EvanStinson 's offer for a Svord Peasant knife and wood to make custom scales. I promised to post pics of the result and just finished the handle:
    P1020674.JPG
    It was a fun project. Now's the time to sharpen it. I already love this knife! Many thanks.

    Just got home to find @raider63 's package waiting for me. Thank you very much! That soap smells good enough to eat. Seriously, it smells that good.
    All of the items will be put to use. I'm going to use the tobacco tin for making char. It's just the right size. 0629171730.jpg

    If you like what is being offered then simply claim it. In return you are obligated to offer up something as well so the thread can stay alive. The pig sticker in post 1039 is the current offer.
