Ray B, my 5th Von Gruff knife is on its' way. Garry makes a tremendous working knife and is very easy to do business with. The hardest thing you'll have to do is decide which design(s) you want and what scales grasp your fancy. So far mine are equipped with either micarta, wood or buffalo horn.

If I understood the drawing information, it was going to be a number picked at random and then the member that was entered that had the total message posts closest to that number would be the winner. Is that right?

.


Each post in the thread has a post number at the right side of the page by the quote and reply line. That number is your entry number

I am still waiting to hear from the moderators who do/have done/will do the drawing for a name and address with a sheath preference (left or right handed).

Von Gruff, I assume that DSC got in the way with travel etc.
PM Jerome and you should be able to get it done in short order.

Have not had time to do this yet as I have been at DSC for the last 4 days. I anticipated this and mentioned in the giveaway that:

The winner will be announced by January 8, 2018 in this thread.

I will have the winner posted by the afternoon!

Congratulations @H-Marlin your entry #259 is the winner! Be sure to claim your prize with @Von Gruff within the next (7) days from the date of the posting notice in this thread.

Make sure to let @Von Gruff know your preference for a left or right handed sheath so he can make the sheath accordingly.

WOW! This is awesome, thank you. Not sure how the contact @Von Gruff works (actually I don't get that @ stuff at all). I am right handed. Let me know if I need to contact a different way or what else I need to do.

Whew!! That's a relief. I was afraid that I'd place an order to purchase a vongruff knife and then win this one- that would cause me to feel real bad. so now I can proceed with ordering a knife with a clear conscience. Congratulations to H Marlin!!

A first with this knife is the authenticity note which will be included with all future knives

Garry, I like your idea of including a Certificate of Authenticity. It is something that can be passed on to future users whether within the original owners family or not.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
