LeclairKnives Giveaway

Hey all, I hope this is ok to post here if not mods please either move or delete it.

The other day I saw a post on FaceBook in which my best friend's 18yr old little brother harvested his very first deer. A nice young mulie buck. I posted on his page congratulating him on his success. The next morning I had an email from my friends brother, He was writing to inquire about a hunting knife. however he is a young guy just getting out and couldnt afford to buy one from me. After thinking about it for a bit I decided that I was going to give him the knife I made this year for my annual hunting trip.

That brings me to the give away, I want to give away 2 more knives to deserving young hunters. To submit an entry post a picture of the candidate with his/her first Turkey, Deer, Elk, Moose etc... and a little back story about the hunt and why the candidate is deserving.

Here are the rules:
The candidate must be a new hunter having harvested their first animal this year.
If the candidate is under the age of 18 he/she must have parental consent to recieve the knife.
Candidates may not enter themselves. I would prefer to have deserving candidates nominated.
Post candidates in this thread up untill 12:00 pm MST on December 8th 2012 and hopefully the winners will have a new knife in time for christmas.
winner one, will be chosen by myself and winner two, will be chosen by my lovely wife based upon the information provided by the nominator.

Here is a picture of the knives as they sit right now.


They are 7.25" long with approx. 3.5" blades. They are both 440C and have been Ht'd and RC tested at 60.The only real difference between them is that one is 1/8" the other is 3/16". One will get Micarta handles the other will get wood.

Thanks everyone for helping me help out some new hunters

Isn't 5/16 a tad thick for a knife that small? They look great by the way, very nice lines. I wish I could pull off a flat grind.
