UPDATE: Winning ‘Battered Blade’ photos are now displayed below. Thanks to all who entered (more than 100 of you!). You sent in some great imagery of well-used blades.
Knives can be companions. For many, there’s one knife that’s really been through it all. Each knick and scrape on a blade tells a story. . . We want to see a picture of the knife that you’re fondest of — your most abused, battered and beloved blade!
This quick contest will run through Friday (July 27, 2012). The GearJunkie staff will review all of the submissions before deciding on our top 10 favorite photos and entries. We’ll give away an Instant knife from Gerber Gear to each of the 10 winners.
Exactly follow these three steps to enter:
1) Click the Facebook “Like” button under the title of this article
2) Email your best “Battered Blade” picture with a brief (one sentence) caption to firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Share! Post your photo on your personal Facebook page with a link to this contest page (and tell your friends why you’re going to win!)
Again, the contest is running through Friday only (July 27), so if you’re at work and don’t have a picture of your most battered blade, no sweat! Snap a few shots at home and send the best one to email@example.com tonight. Good luck!
—This contest is a part of GearJunkie’s “Day of the Knife” project, which includes content about knives, giveaways and a reader-submission contest for a chance to win $5k in gear!
