Housekeeping: Any contest entries in the queue?

Howdy folks. I hesitate to waste valuable trying time on housekeeping when I would rather be bringing you all fresh content, but I need to see if I can’t shake the tree a bit and see if there are any more contest entries coming down the pike.

While I have been very happy with the 6 entries that we have received and run already, we have assembled a pretty phenomenal prize pool including a Spyderco Sharpmaker and 2 knives, a Pops Custom Clip for the folding knife of your choice, and a bunch of prizes from the SOB Tactical. Right now I have many more prizes than entries and I want to change that. I have learned so much from all of you through comments on the site, and I know that there are many of you who have backgrounds and experiences different than mine and so many of our readers. I am certain that virtually every one reading this has a knife story or experience that people would find interesting.

If you don’t think that narrative writing is your thing, that’s fine too. I would love a couple of knife reviews. Just conduct and photograph a couple of objective tests like paper, cardboard, and rope. If it is applicable a little food prep work is nice as well. It doesn’t need to be as over the top as one of our reviews, though it is always nice to see a little creativity in testing as well. There are so many knives out there that we haven’t had a chance to review ourselves. Help us out, and you are almost certain to take home something cool for your efforts.

Please email your entries to thetruthaboutknives@gmail.com. If you have something you are working on, and need to finish, drop a note in the comments. If you have any questions, or would like some guidance, please email or comment. I

    I’m about halfway through a piece about the historical
