We're Givin' Away Some Stuff!

We are giving away two great prizes generously donated by Tod's Stuff!



That's right. Two different pieces were given to us by Leo Todeschini of Tod's Stuff so that we could have this contest and give them away to two lucky myArmoury.com members!

First Prize
The first place prize is the Tod's Stuff Bone-handled Baselard with scabbard. Read all about it in our newly-published hands-on review by Chad Arnow.

Second Prize
The second place prize is a really great small utility / eating knife and scabbard made by Tod's Stuff that has an antique ivory grip and beautiful pin-work. We just published a new hands-on review that talks about it. Check it out.

Please take a moment to visit the Tod's Stuff Web site and give Tod a big thanks for donating these prizes. Unfortunately, being the guy running this site, I'm not eligible to win them, but I'd sure like to own both of them!


This contest is open to all myArmoury.com members.

Here's the twist: The longer you've been a myArmoury.com member, the better your chance of winning! Your odds of winning are based on your registration date. While anyone who enters can win, the weighted odds make it payback time for the old-time site members!

  • If the button says to click it to enter, just click it. If it doesn't say you can enter, it will let you know. Easy, right?
  • Make sure you're logged-in before you try to enter.
  • Contest entry is open until Monday July 13, 2009.
  • All participants will be entered into a drawing and the winning names will be randomly selected later that same day.
  • Domestic shipping charges are included with the winning prize, but international winners will be required to pay for shipping.



Good luck to everyone!!



    Contest-specific rules and limitations:

  1. You must be a registered member of myArmoury.com
  2. myArmoury.com moderators and Team Members are eligible to win
  3. The odds of winning are based on each entrant's registration date. The longer a person has been a member, the better the chance of winning

One entry entered for each month you've been a member?

I would love to add that baselard to my kit; that is a beautiful piece.

Well entered this one as I don't already have these in my collection as opposed to the last contest I declined to participate in since I already had both prizes and it seemed like a good idea to increase the odds for those who didn't that time. Wink Big Grin

Great prizes by the way and another bunch of interesting feature articles ( reviews ).

Oh, and thanks to Leo for his generosity in giving these as prizes. Cool

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Very nice stuff. I might have to buy one of those eating knives or one of the larger chef's knives on his site.

These prizes have been in my possession for a little bit now, and I can tell you that they're really nice pieces. I think the retail value is somewhere around $300 USD each. Happy It will be sad to part with them, but I know the lucky winners will enjoy them.

Indeed! I wonder what kind of arm twisting had to be done to get them out of Chad's possession!

The pieces look really nice. Tod's stuff always seems to look top notch.

No arm twisting. Happy They were never meant for me, sadly... I was just the custodian of them while we waited to get the reviews done and the contest up. Happy

How long will there be for the winner to respond? I'll be away from my computer from this Friday through July 18, I'll be in Fort Knox, Kentucky, for training with the US Army as a part of my ROTC commitments. Just in case I happen to win either piece, either of which would be the first sharp in my as of yet nonexistent collection.
