    So the 2 weeks will be up Monday the 25th which is Memorial Day here in the states so I wanted to bump this up to give anyone that may have missed this thread a chance to enter but if no one else enters by Saturday May 23rd at 10 am EST I'll go ahead and announce the winner.
    All the entry's have been great and thank you so much to all that participate to anyone that host a GAW their reward for putting up prizes and hosting is the excitement for the folks that participate and yes also the number of folks that participate. So when you see a GAW go jump in there and participate it will make the host feel good about what they just did.

    OK NOW THE MYSTERY KNIFE PRIZE REVEAL!!!
    The winner will receive both the $50 gift card to CK and this A.G.Russell Cattaraugus FH-3 folding hunter with a philips head screwdriver This is a great knife made in 1992 Seki Japan for the A. G. Russell Knife Collectors Club. It locks but to unlock the main blade you have to depress the secondary. You will also receive your choice of a Buck belt sheath or a Northwoods pocket sheath.

    Good knife they're a bit scarce and when you do find sold prices they are all over the place from right around $50 with shipping the lowest I found was $41.99 plus $5.99 shipping the highest I saw was $229 with free shipping. To me the knife is $75 because that's the max I'd pay for either this knife or a knife that I wanted that was very similar in build quality, functionality, aesthetics and of course overall quality. I'm not sure about blade steel I only found one source for info and they said it was AUS-8 all I know for sure it's stainless. The knife is near mint. I have not found the box yet but will keep looking. It still has the factory edge if I would have kept it I would have sent it across the stones a few times but I thought the winner would want to do that. The covers are a nice redbone and I like the jigging. I don't know what else to tell you except someone is about to win a nice prize package. :D:D

    Cool knife, Randy! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    It's still kind of mysterious, even though you've shown us what it is! ;)
    Great blade combo, including Philips; distinctive acorn shield; triple-threaded copperhead-style bolster and bareheaded.

    @Old Hunter you made me spit my coffee but I must say any knife that's always wanting to go outside to play is my kind of knife. :D:D

    Now I don't usually enter giveaways, because I have been very blessed in this life!! But that is such an interesting knife, Randy!!
    Can my picture of old and new "Ancients" qualify me to enter for Paul Hillborn? If so, please enter me, and send him this knife if I am chosen!!
    He's had some losses lately, and deserves some good luck!!
