    That happens on occasion. It has to do with electrons bumping into protons and positrons passing negativetrons or something like that. Happens to me all the time, as Flo would say.

    That's a wild piece Skinner. Care to describe the features ?
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    Very cool looking. As far as where to send them - you hang onto them for now. Not sure exactly how Winter wants to do the auction when it is time, but after the auction - the funds are sent to me - once I receive them then the knife maker will send out the knife (knives) to the member that had the winning bid. At least that is how we auctioned things for DOC in the past.

    Size really doesn't matter, Willie.

    Hey, Skinner! Yeah, tell us more. That's a crazy cool design. Must be sharp, I see a band aid. (snort, giggle).

    Ok Here's The Info On the Knife
    Metal:Lawnmower Blade-So Unknown Steel
    Red Liner: Make From a Red Beef Cutting Board(Plastic/Anti Bacterial)
    Blade Size:5"
    Handle Size:5"
    OA Size:10"
    Thickness:1/8 "
    Scales Are Vaneer Style Micarta
    The Shape Came To Me From Watching a Skink that Hange Around My Work Table
    The Blade is Heavy In the Hand But is Totally Balanced.
    The Blade Design Is Just a Modded Style Of the Main Knives I make.I Call them Southern High Belly Skinners.

    And On the Sharpness Front Yep Was Sanding the Blade and Was SSanding the Edge As I Went Along and When I Hit the 6000 Grit Bam Right threw the thumb and Was So Clean I Found Out By the Blood On the Blade .LOL
    And In the Pic I Have My Wrist Wrapped Due to Savere Carpel Tunnal I Go In Sep 19 for EMG testing and Then Set up Surgery (Not till After Deer Hunting Season)I Have Processing and Skinning to Do . I Have Had It for Over 10 Years Now And It's Just Getting Worse.Doesn't Help That I Hand Sand Everything After 110 Grit up to at times 6000 Grit.

    Crash, the matter of the auction I'd like to put solely in the hands of the admins and mod team.

    I don't mind doing it, but would like some input from everybody making a knife. List all together? One at a time? Either post or PM me your thoughts on how you would like to see it proceed when the time comes.

    May as well discuss it openly.

    There's a few ways to do it.

    Maybe, instead of an auction, the makers can come up with a value for the knife and sell slots that equal that value.

    Say I think my knife is worth $100. Sell 10 slots at $10 bucks and use a random number online thingy to decide which of the 10 slots is the winner.

    That would leave the customer with the decision on what knife they want and $10 is not gonna break the bank so poor folk like me can get in on it.

    The problem is that we need a thread for every knife and the thread is open till the slots are full.

    That would be my prefered method.

    I'm open for anything. It's all for a good cause. My initial thought was (looks like we'll have five knives) was to list the knives with pictures and descriptions - leave the thread open for a week or so. Bidders could submit a bid for the knife they wanted. If a raffle suits people better that is fine with me. When we discussed a raffle in the past - if twenty people entered, then the money would have to be received from all twenty before the knife was sent out. We kind of stayed away from the raffle method for that reason.

    Everybody weigh in. Hopefully we get a lot of forum members participating. How do you want us to proceed?

    I'm Up to Any Way it Will Be Done I'm Not a Expert Knife Maker Still Learning . And the Knives I Have Sold So Far I Have Not Sold For a Arm and a Leg . My Biggest 2 I Made Were Bowie Styles and Sold Both for 60 Bucks With Sheaths. And I Make My Knives From Found Steel Have Yet Had to Pay for Any Steel Yet.
    . I Like the Slots Idea But ,I'm Up For Anything.

    Default OK, my 2 cents:

    The object, as always, is to make as much money as possible for a great cause.
    Maximum participation, minimum hassle.
    Do an auction. List all 5 knives (numbered?) in one thread with an opening bid for each.
    Sit back and enjoy.

    Now Winter had a good idea about giving more people with limited funds a shot at owning something special. That could be a whole 'nother DOC thang. Maybe with one item.
    Variety is good.

    Made some progress. I still need to fine tune the finger guard, etch it and make some pants for it.

    That's a great looking knife Crash.


    On the raffle/auction. Why not just have the knifemakers decide what they wanna do with their knives?

    It may take a while for the auction/raffle to happen but, wth, it's not like the DOC can't use the money whenever it arrives.

    Awesome knife Crash, the red and black Crashcarta is wicked looking!
