Ron, when you have a chance pick a "Door Prize". #5 and #2 are gone. Thanks!!
Note: #4 the European multi-blade tool is gone to our first guy, Robert. Please select from the knives below.
We had five contestants including our winner. Four of you are eligible for Door Prizes, in descending order of how many times you entered the contest. The one tie is broken based on who entered the contest first.
So, the guys left in order of selection are
and Wayne Whitted
We have five Door Prizes left to choose from.
1.) a paper set of instructions on how to play Mumbly Peg! This paper may or may not be original to the 1950s, but it does have a seperation where it has been folded in half so many times over the years. I played Mumbly Peg enough as a kid that I stuck a few feet pretty good including my own...ouch!
I will try to get a photo that I can provide to you but this paper is about 5 inches by 11.55 inches and gives you all of the instructions o n how to play Mumbly Peg without putting you or your friends into the hospital.
Can you imagine selling knives today and including a copy of the instructions for this "Knife Game"? How much in fines would we have to pay? And how many lawsuits would we face???
2.) A stainless advertising knife, advertising the Lehigh Safety Shoe Company. I shoulda had those when I was playing Mumbly Peg. The handle is engraved with the Lehigh info and the company is still operating. It has a nice chain to swing it from your....whatever.
3.)a European lockback knife with a gold/brass colored bird in flight on the handles. No makers mark on this, but the tang is inscribed Stainless over Taiwan.
4.) a multi-blade tool from an unknown maker. This seems to be a nice old knife. The blades could use a cleanig, gently.
Both #3 and #4 were sold as Eastern European knives, even tho 3 has "Taiwan" on the blade
5.) a 100 year old Robeson 2 blade knife. A tip of the primary blade has been broken off but I love this knife. Robeson model #42223
