    I know it isn't on part with some of our past GAW's, but I recieved an Ontario Rat-2 in a trade, (lightly carried but never used to cut anything) and really ended up liking it! I'd like someone needing a small edc blade to share my fondness for this little knife.

    A lot like my latest Sanrenmu fetish... (man, that could sound dirty to someone in the outside world) Kinda like what I thought Gymkhana was before I saw a video....

    There's nothing special going on at first glance. Aus-8 steel. Plain blade shape. Standard scales and liner lock with an ambi thumb stud. But it is neatly set up so the pocket clip will accommodate both tip up and tip down carry, righty or lefty. The thumb stud and pivot mechanism are almost in line when closed. This means forward pressure (toward the pivot) really fires the blade into open position. First few times you flick it you will swear it is assisted...

    Comes in the box with paperwork. Black. Will try to get some pics up soon, but until then just Google it. Great little edc blade.

    Entry requires nothing more than an I'm in!
    And will run for one week. So next Tuesday at midnight it will close and kids will draw the name.

    I'd prefer people who have a good everyday kick around blade (or several like yours truly...) refrain, but it is open to anyone and everyone. Would just like to see it go to someone needing but not having.

    Cheers!
    Oh, and thank all of you for the kind messages with my split from you know where. Just wasn't gonna vibe with 'the way I roll...'
    If a giveaway requires you to 'give' money to someone or some organization, be sure where your dollars actually go...

    They do take bribes. In their pre-teens they've become more demanding... Video games, pizza.... Candy still works, but it has to be something really really good... Lol.

    I'm in, not for me, not my kind of thing, but as a gift for someone who would appreciate it.

    Alright. Closed for new entries. Kiddos will draw after school tomorrow!
    Good luck. As usual, I'm sure it will go to a deserving home.

    Cheers!

    Winner is Ben!
    You get to pay it forward indeed.

    Not many entrants in this one. We will have another soon and run it a little longer.... Maybe do 4-5 items during spring cleaning?

    Cheers!
