Decided on two Ulus instead. That way two will win.
One has an antler handle with simple engraving in the pewter inlays (3).
One has a black walnut handle with an etching of walrus on one side of blade and sea turtle on other.
All proceeds go to the Super Ben Project.
Drawing will be on Saturday after lunch.
***More fun to be there to win, but not necessary***

Update: There will be a catered BBQ lunch on Saturday for those who asked, the rest are first come first served.
I go "off-grid" today through Sunday. See everyone there.
