My Associate Editor David Andersen (Nordsmith Knives) and I worked our tails off down at the BLADE Show2017 in Atlanta this past weekend, and it is gratifying to receive the “Brass Ring of Blogging” from The Blogfather for our efforts. Thank you Kind Sir, and thank you Instapundit readers for checking us out.
Since we are receiving the bump in traffic, I figured now was the time to announce our 2017 Reader Submission contest. Do you have a story about your first knife? An inherited treasure? A how-to on skinning a deer? A knife from your collection, pocket, toolbox, or camping gear that you would like to review? Something political on knives and the Second Amendment? You could win a White River Knives “Backpacker” or one of a dozen other prizes. Everyone who submits something should at least get a couple of stickers from BLADE Show sent their way.
The White River Knives Backpacker is the most comfortable skeletonized knife I have ever held. It is made from a single piece of S30V and has a very ergonomic feel and full rounding of the finger choil. It is really solid 3″ neck knife which will undoubtedly serve its recipient well for a great many years. Other prizes are detailed in my Blade Show 2017 : The Haul post. We purchased the above knife with funds from the blog.
You can read the entries from our 2015 contest here, if you are in need of some inspiration. Otherwise, send your submissions (with at least one relevant photograph if possible) to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will announce a deadline at some later date, but will begin running entries as soon as they come in.
Since you have read this far, here is a little background on The Truth About Knives. We spun-off of The Truth About Guns in 2013, and remain part of the family as it were.
Our goal is to provide our readers the news, politics, and culture of the knife world, as well as the most in depth knife reviews you will find on the interwebs. Please come back and visit us again, and please give us a follow on Facebook, Twitter (@knifetruth), or Instagram (@knifetruth) if you are so inclined. We have tons of BLADE Show pics on the Instagram feed in particular.
