    Winner is Post #9 - cbr1000

    GAW - I am very thankful for the many blessings in my life, and all the great people here in the Traditional Forum. To show my thankfulness I want to offer up this amazing split-back whittler from GEC & Roy Humenick. Anyone who has a GEC Split-back whittler will understand how well GEC executes these patterns. So please read the rules below, and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family & friends.

    GAW is for a BNIT GEC #133317 American Whittler

    Here are the simple rules:

    1. Please participate only if you are a regular here in Traditional's (75 or more posts).
    2. Please post one thing you are thankful for. That's it, and your in. (First spot burned gets a second entry).
    3. Don't participate if you plan on flipping the knife if you win. Use it, and or gift to someone who's never had a GEC Traditional.
    4. I will let this run till the end of the month, and then draw a number from a random generator.

    Thanks for participating!

    I'm thankful for guys who do giveaways on the traditional forum, and I'm thankful for cool pocket knives. Not an entry. Cool knife!

    Edit - what the heck. You want to give away a knife. I don't have a whittler. I'll play, let's make this an entry.

    I am thankful for so many things in my life, but chief among those things is my children. I am very grateful for my children, and their health.

    Another thing I am thankful for is the good luck I have had in GAWs on this forum. So much good fortune that I really shouldn't enter in this GAW, but I WANTSES THAT KNIFE! It is just too pretty to pass up the chance. And since everyone else is doing the not an entry thing, someone has to enter!

    I do hope that someone who has had less luck gets to win this knife, but I sure wouldn't shed a tear if it came to me.

    I'm thankful that there's a place like this for us all to support each other in our addiction ;).

    I'll enter because, while I'm normally not a Congress kind of guy...I love Whittlers!

    Thanks for the chance,

    I am thankful, first off, for the life that the Lord has blessed me with, for the life he has given, wife he has given and children he has given me.

    Secondly, I’m thankful for my hibbies and the ability to do them, And the friend I’ve made doing them, including knives and here.

    Thirdly, I’m thankful for the opportunity you’ve given all of us on this amazing giveaway!

    I'm thankful for the chance to play and I'll refrain from entry since I've already received two generous acts in the past few months. I'd feel guilty if I won that beauty :D

    Good luck guys!

    I have been blessed with so much more than I deserve. And I now appreciate little things that I used to take for granted when I was younger.
    Not an Entry but what an awesome Gaw thanks for your generosity. :thumbsup:
