What should I give away next?

Fri May 18, 2012 11:20 pm

Any thought on an item that would be popular to use for a drawing? I would prefer to do more items under a hundred bucks.

Maybe a nice petty or paring knife. I could use a new one! :D

I agree with Chris a 150mm petty would be a nice one.

Either a nice Idahone or an HA glass rod.

Sharpening stuff would be nice. I would say a 1500 Shapton pro or a 1200 Nubatama. A snow White for a higher grit stone.
HA strop kit is great as well.


When it comes to knives: new artifex or a custom CCK..

I want a giveaway just for us mods!!!! :D

So going off the last response you gave in the Sharpening DVD thread, Mark, maybe you should give away the DVD and a 2 stone set. It will give the winner a start to sharpening and almost a guaranteed follow-up sale or two. Obviously, the winner or the participants would have to be sharpening noobs. Those should not be hard to find with all the questions you get concerning it. Of the two give-aways, the one that was in the newsletter definitely got a better response than the second one. Maybe this would be a good candidate to put there as well. If the DVD would not be ready in time for the next newsletter, maybe the one after that, and you give away something else now.

New Artifex! For the contest I was thinking people could guess what grit sharpening stone I used for that slurry art picture. If there's more than 1 right then draw from those people.

These are all good suggestions. I'll most likely use the all over the coming months.

Keith is going to donate a combo rod that he's working on so I think I may offer this next. Any other ideas please post them here and I'll come back to this list and use more of them as the summer goes on.
