    Three knives for free

    Having a clean up in the shed and I have three knives that are new or all but new that I don't use. I think from memory a couple may have been prizes from the local possum hunt fund raiser.
    Thought it would be a good idea to put them up on the forum for free, but would much prefer them to go to someone in need rather than the fastest on the keyboard - ie young and starting out, or low income, or someone who helps out others getting into the great out doors.

    So, here's the thought - if you know a worthy recipient, post up their first name and a paragraph about why you think they should get a free knife. All forum members can then vote on the stories via the like button. Top three voted stories get the knives, with highest vote getting first pick, second highest second pick. Knives will be shipped free of charge.

    Stories and voting will close next Sunday 5th August.

    Knives are Outdoor Edge Swing, Buffalo River, and a Buck boning.

    Can I nominate my son for the Edge ?
    He’s spiral broken his tib and fib, and has lost some ankle movement
    See’s the specialist early next month to work out what went wrong with the surgery when they inserted a rod in the leg
    He’s looking forward to getting back out in the back country, but as he struggles to walk more than 40 mins, and anything over 15
    degrees incline hurts, it might take a while.
    I’d like to buy him one of Nga’s, but can’t afford it at the moment.
    Cheers

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    I had a similar injury when I was 17, same sortve issues and all,I’ve worked in the outdoors all my adult life with very little issues, so I feel for him, but let him know that it will take time to come right but it shouldn’t stop him from having a very active life, make sure he works hard on his rehab tho

    Good on you 'HotBarrels'. I would like to nominate Sam. (my young fella - 12 years old) only because the poor chap has been born into the wrong family in terms of hunting and shooting. God knows where he gets it from, but he has an almost insatiable thirst for anything hunting and shooting. I have had to get my gun license and I take him when ever I can but other than safety aspects I cant teach him bugger all. Imagine that ! Learning from scratch yourself at 12 years old. He has taught himself to kill and gut goats, he has tanned his own goat skins, he's currently obsessed with going possum shooting, he builds traditional long bows and arrows, he naps his own flint arrow heads ! I could go on........he would love and treasure new knife.

    i would like to nominate my (well one over) neighbours daughter for a knife, 9 almost 10 and wants to get her first bunny, though i think dads 12 gauge may be a little much i am going to let her use my still un fired browning 22 l/a (she better not scratch it). her reason is that she wants to feed her cats real food. just thought that even though she is still too young to own a rifle a bunny skinning knife is a good start.

    Got a young joker 17yrs I take out occasionally. Dads in his seventies and whilst tries heath, age and finance are an issue. last time I took him out we shot 8 turkeys, me I just breasted and minced mine, him plucked and roasted his ones as he didn't want to waste any of the meat. First time I took him out I shot a bearing ewe and he skinned with my knife as the ones he had at home weren't up to the task. Made him carry it out, not a very big fella but keen and the right attitude. Again none of the meat was wasted as this family do struggle. Comes from a very loving family and well they're just nice. After every time I've taken him out there is always the thank you and excellent manners, guess he will be coming out again. He hardly ever wears boots or socks for that matter even in winter. He has now joined my Fire Unit and has aspirations of being a Arborists. Just a keen young lad who runs traps in the season and school work otherwise. Wouldn't of mentioned him if I didn't think he was a worthy candidate.
