Revived Sos Surprise Box GAW ( US edition ).
on: October 27, 2022, 07:27:45 PM
Let me first begin by saying Sos is an amazing member.  Her generosity and willingness to share is admirable.  She began this terrific idea a while back but for some unknown reason it stalled.  I finally stepped in to receive a box and sent a box down under which seemed to be a bigger hit that the one here in the US  :dunno:.  Yes you heard that right there ended up being 2 boxes which was amazing.  The folks who joined in added so many awesome things it grew into two boxes. 

I still have ONE box that needs someone to step in a receive.   :pok:

Below are her original "rules".  Please read and add your name to be in line to get this generous idea up and running again.  First person to add name to list please send me your address US ONLY so I can get it to you. 

Here is the link to the original thread, https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,87969.0.html

Here is link to the box that was sent to our friends down under
https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,88259.0.html


I was going thru some draws and came up with a few items that I am willing to Giveaway.
The items are a mix of SAKs, tools, knives, flashlights and other small edc items.

Rather than a straight GAW, I thought I’d see if there was some interest in having a Surprise Box style giveaway.

I am going to pack as much as I can in a small flat rate shipping box, then send it to the first person chosen randomly.  That person then gets to chose 1-3 items from the box, before sending it off to the next person who gets to do the same thing and down the list until we run out of items or people.

A couple of guidelines to better understand how it will work and agreement that you are making by signing up:
1.  Due to shipping costs and not knowing if VAT and taxes would make worthwhile, only US shipping addresses.  If there is enough interest from European members, I would be willing to send some items to start a European box.

2.  Total number of participants is currently limited to 20 to ensure sufficient items.  If I locate more items, I may increase.  If so I will announce.

3.  Depending on number of items that fit in box and people who sign up, there may be more than one surprise box and list.  If so, the people assigned each box and order will be created randomly.

4. The box recipient can select 1-3 items to keep.  If more than 1 item is selected then, recipient must add at least one item to the box for each additional item selected before shipping,

5.  Anyone who signs up agrees to ship the items to the next person in a timely manner. This means willing to pay for shipping (small flat rate box currently priced at $8.45)

6.  If you feel that you get a good deal from what you get from the box, please make a donation to the forum to help support this wonderful place.

The cost of a priority small box is small compared to the fun and neat stuff you very well will find inside.

I'm hesitant, as I played last year. Hopefully someone will take you up on it once you've got it in-hand.

Box is officially here, and very well stocked! Without spoiling the surprise, I will say that most major brands and styles of multitool are represented, along with quite a few other EDC staples and single function knives.

I got a nice Wenger 85mm (a Traveler?) and some picks out of it. There's plenty of good stuff in here, so I may snag a third before I send it out.

I'll be adding a few goodies of my own, so anyone that wants it should post and/or PM.

Thanks for kicking it off, Aloha!

Bumping this to try and get it off my kitchen table. Think of it as a forum white elephant, swap out a knife you're iffy on and try something new!

It is shocking and perplexing. After all, it only costs $10 - $11 and a little time at the post office to ship the box to the next person.

Its the least expensive way to have a little fun and find a neat item or 2. 

Come on, who's next?

It does.  Thats part of the fun.  Plus seeing cool random things inside.  Heck even just adding a few things is fun too.

There is one item that I passed on last year, but would take now. I have to wonder if it is still in there?
