This auction is a bit more complicated, as I am offering ALL the High Speed Steel knives on my available page

I know that the economy has been hard on a lot of us, so I'm giving everyone a chance to get a knife. Any bid over $1.00 is fine, if you can't afford $1.00 then enter a bid of $0.00 (you will still have to pay shipping) and if no one else bids then the knife will go to you (first come first served). This should be fun for every one. Be SURE to say in the PM title which knife the bid is for.






1) click on the image to go to the available page and take a look at the specs. of the pieces.

2) PM me a bid of what you would be willing to pay for the piece.(shipping $5 USD, international extra)
There is no reserve on these pieces, don't worry about bidding low.
Be sure to say what piece(s) you are bidding on and the bid $ in the PM subject
5% of the price goes to myArmoury.

The bidding will end Friday 10-16-2009 at Noon (PST) after which I will contact the winner(s)
and announce the final price and the winner(s) (unless they want to remain anonymous).

Let me know if you have any questions about the piece or how the auction works.

Have fun,

Ben

It's not that I would trade my lot
For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

For those of you that place a bid it would really help if you could include the name of the piece and the bid in the subject line of the PM. Example:

Double edged sailor utility, $**

That will speed up the tallying at the end of the bidding.

Enjoy!

Thanks,

Ben

Thanks for the good response.

There are still a couple of pieces that don't have bids on them. Remember, even if you only want to pay shipping the knife could be yours.

One week to go.

Have fun.
