October Donation Draw- This should get your attention!
on: October 04, 2016, 11:01:58 PM
Honestly I was floored when we were offered this month's Donation Draw Prize.  I thought I had something special lined up, but when this one was offered, well, it blew the other thing I had right out of the water.  I'll have to find something else to do with that other prize now, but that's a small price to pay.



I can't actually bring myself to make silly comments like I usually do, since this is such a seriously cool prize- I mean, it's a 1948 Victorinox Soldier model, which means it is 68 years old.  We have offered some discontinued tools before, but this is the longest since discontinued we have ever had- in fact, this is so discontinued, this particular design ended long before all of the other companies that created the tools we've offered even existed!



Plus this is in beautiful condition, and it has a WaffenKontrol mark as well, meaning it has been issued. 



This knife may not be perfect, but after 68 years, how perfect are any of us going to look?  But it is certainly in as good a shape as any knife can be after this long- and the even better news is that this is no casual cruiser to be taken out on Sunday!  A knife like this is just as solid as the day it was made, and could be a beautiful EDC knife just as easily as it could be a display piece.



So how do you get this knife?  Well, that's as simple as it is every other month- contribute a minimum of $10 to the Forum Operational Fund and, if we hit our goal of $275 you will be entered into a draw to win this beauty.



If we hit the goal before midnight on October 15th (Forum Offset Time of course) I'll come up with some kind of fancy Early Bird Draw Prize.



The more you donate, the more chances you will have to win- $20 gets you two entries, $50 gets you five entries and so on.



I would also like to publicly thank an extremely generous member for providing this month's prize.  We've had some amazing prizes in the past, and it is really difficult to surpass many of them, but we really do have a serious contender here and I want this member to know how much it is appreciated!

I would be really surprised if we don't hit the goal on this one.  :cheers:

But last month's prize was also awesome and we didn't hit the goal ???

I'm based in the UK, would I still qualify for entry if I donate at least $10?

The rules are the same for absolutely everyone. I just lit it as US dollars because everyone seems to know what their currency equals in USD.

Indeed they did. I really wish these were still in production.  It would be cool to have a Legacy Soldier series.
