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 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
