This ‘pay it forward’ giveaway is a tribute to the generosity of Blade Forums member Mr. Clay Neal. When I inquired about where I could find a replacement shield for a pre-1986 Buck 303 Cadet, he graciously sent me what I was after, and more lagniappe. So, I will be giving away a pre-86 (long pull) Buck 301 Stockman in fine shape to the winner of this exercise. To enter, just post a traditional-pocket-knife-related anecdote or memory that you think may be of general interest to folks on the forum, and indicate in your post that you want to be considered for the GAW. If you include a related knife pic, so much the better, but that won't affect your chances. Whoever posts the first reply to this will be entry #1, the second reply will be #2, and so on; limit one post per person. Last chance to enter will be midnight on Friday, July 31st. Next weekend, I’ll count ‘em up, put all of the numbers in a hat, and pick a winner. Thank you all for enjoyable reading and viewing, and good luck to you!
