WELCOME HOME !

Okay folks! Its contest time again. And today we have for you a never before used contest! New in box with paperwork written by none other than William Shakespeare in a rare phase of his, after his Blue Period, that many highly respected historians call his Sharp Period. The box is completely made of 100% recycled Neanderthal organic toilet paper and is completely biodegradable! This contest was carried by Admiral Byrd on his incredibly famous trek to Timbuktu (slightly less famous than his expedition to the South Pole) and has a signed certificate from his aesthetician responsible for his pedicures and general foot health, Paula L. Piggy. Sealed away in a designer Gucci waterproof sleeping bag once used by the Captain of the Titanic, the contest was perfectly preserved in an airtight room in the Russian space station until it crashed to earth and was found by a roving band of Irish geologists in Guadalupe searching for the lost King Solomon's treasure. After the geologists were captured by rogue vegan ballet dancers, this contest made its way across Europe only to be seized by Paul Franco Bunjoor, senior fungus advisor to King Eugene of Atlantis before being stolen again by rioting Belgian throat singers, after a Dali Lama concert went terribly wrong. After being presumed missing for a million and three years, it was found by Stephen Hawking's barber whilst on safari in East Greenland where he generously donated it to the Louvre' museum. After an incredibly successful tour of the most famous kindergarten cloakrooms of Monte Carlo, it was released to the public where we spared no expense to obtain it to bring it to you, our members! Our senior aquisititions and relic analyst went to great lengths to bring this to you, including learning to do the Macarena in a pink tu-tu and lime green leg warmers while wearing soccer cleats and singing the Peruvian National Anthem in Yiddish accompanied by the Village people and David Hasslehoff.

 

But wait!!! There's more!!!

 

The winner of our contest, after submitting their entries in a sealed, platinum laced solid gold cubic zirconium powdered sheep’s bladder, which will be stored in an impenetrable child proof Aspirin container (once owned by Dr. Ugh Gruunt, special advisor and senior theoretical physicist to the inventor of the wheel, Rolly Treadless) and buried 37 1/2 thousand leagues under the sea (since 40 000 was copywrited) until judging. Judging will be done by YOU, our millions of members! A contest of this magnitude has not been seen since the infamous 1733 riots when Sheik Abu Bakashooshoo's titanium plated left toenail was put up on Ebay for a ridiculous 14 deutschmarks. Insanity! The lengths we go to for our billions of valued members is honestly, quite staggering! So for you, our trillions of members, and the bazillion people watching with bated breath across the globe, here are the rules!

 

 

Okay...I hope you all get where I am going with this. For this contest, I will post a photo of a knife. For the chance to win our contest, you must make an advertisement for this knife in the picture. Said ad will be as absurd and crazy as you can get it! Materials, lineage, assembly, history and owners are completely up to you. Get silly! Get ridiculous! Your imagination (and a PG rating) is the only limitation. Entries will be submitted to me VIA email or messaged through IKC so that people's ideas will be original and unaffected by other entries. After one week, I will post the entries here on IKC, and phase two of the contest will commence. Members who have not entered a submission to the contest will then have the chance to vote on their favourite ad and choose our winner!

Anyone submitting an entry for the contest will have the chance to win a Trestle Pines knife:

 

Old Growth Ash Handle Superior

Wharncliffe Blade

CPM154 Steel

3.75" OAL Closed

2 13/16" Blade (bolster to tip)

Cut Swedge Top of Blade

Flat Grind

Half Stops

Brass Bolsters

Brass Pins & Liners

 

 

But wait! After all entries are submitted and posted, you will have the chance to vote on your favourite entry and win a genuine one of a kind iKC Coffee mug!! The winner of this coffee mug will be chosen from the members who did not submit an advertisement but voted on the entries. Those of you who enter an ad may vote as well, but not for yourself, and will *not* be eligible for the secondary prize. I will leave the voting open for one week.

So get those creative juices flowing and channel your inner used car salesman! Let's see those advertisements!

 

 

SELL THIS KNIFE!!

 

Send entries to knives@manxnet.ca and I will send a confirmation email back to acknowledge your entry to the contest. I will also post in this thread who has submitted entries. After one week, I will post all entries received to this thread for everyone to read, enjoy and vote on. *Everyone* is able to vote on entries, staff included, but any entrants voting cannot vote for their own entry. Good luck to all! And remember…this all goes by member votes, so be as creative and imaginative as you can, folks!

I gotta say

You  are looking good in # 6, Jan.

I'm guessing .. swinging that hammer working that hot steel on the anvil has done AMAZiNG things for your natural good looks :)

Welcome to Carter’s Ultimate Knife shop!


Let me introduce you to the newest knife our founder has created for you. Miss Jan herself has cus-tom designed the ultimate knife for all you hunters and bush type people. The Georgia Star Tactical Fighting Knife comes with a removable scope for your convenience. This knife is the cream of the crop and is limited to only 5000 ever made. Get yours today!


Only $199.95! Shipping is $6.99 flat rate all day long!


This knife features the most up to date materials including, but not limited to star dust and unicorn horn… yes folks.. Unicorn horn. Jan only uses the best in her knife making! Get your limited edition knife, that is hand forged by Jan Carter herself!


She forged this knife herself… see here– I have proof!


After making the blade, Jan then puts her focus on making sure the scope is just right. This takes mak-ing sure all the stars align and careful consideration of the glass made from the sands of the Georgia tar pits. Collecting this sand takes weeks of donkey riding with Celtic songs sung at the top of your lungs, and sleeping outside with the critters native to the area….. This is not small feat, let me assure you! Then She takes her special tools made from the finest Floridian metals to sculpt the scope to fit on this great knife.


Once made, Jan makes sure the scope is perfect for your Georgia Star Tactical Fighting Knife with Remova-ble scope. Here is our lovely Jan making sure your removable scope is ready to use.

After making the scope it is covered in a covering that is made from a granulated stone collected from the underwater caves off the tip of the Florida coastline. This stone is the darkest substance known to man. Using this covering, makes sure no one will see your scope in the dark. Trust me– all they will see is the glint of your knife– just before they leave this world.


Make sure to order your Georgia Star Tactical Fighting Knife with Removable Scope today! Only $199.95 … and remember… shipping is only $6.99 flat rate all day long!

I vote for #6

#7 -- because those photos were so incredibly convincing. I mean, there's no way they were photo-shopped. Please don't blame me though because if they were, it was seamless. In the words of the immortal Fox Mulder, "I want to believe."

Jan. is this contest over? Sorry, I've been having physical issues for the last month which prevented me from sitting up at my computer, so I am a little behind on current events here. If the contest is not over I vote for #3.

I will have to go with # 6 

It is still open for the vote. Thank you Syd and get better, we miss you

Sorry Tom and Syd...yes, the entry portion is done, but you can vote for a winner!. 

Great entry, Tom...but just a little too late! Thanks for trying!

Thanks Jan, feeling better. Spent a month flat on my back due to a reaction to a skin biopsy, they went too deep and nicked my sciatic nerve which literally knocked me on my a**. Nice to be sitting in a chair for a change. Though I've been away from the forum I haven't stopped spending stoopid money on pocket knives. Wait til you see what I found!!
