    Aaww, that's so nice of you. Now I want to send you something too :hug:

    But perhaps you could join the big giveaway instead if you feel like donating something? That way at least you'll have a chance to get a little surprise yourself too. It feels fairer to me that way but that is all up to you of course.

    This is the one I'm talking about: click me

    Space seems to be at a premium in the box, so instead if you want to donate something, why not put it up in the big giveaway here instead? As a bonus, if you want to get yourself a +3 or +4 badge then you also get the chance of winning something cool too :)

    Cheers for the offer though, sorry it wasn't meant to be this time, an unfortunate side effect of geography and politics...

    As Take2 and Narcosynthesis already wrote: :D That's very kind of you! However, it seems not fair sending something and not get something back (I'm definitely about taxes here :mad:). So you can offer maybe a "surprise package" for the big GAW already mentioned. No need to get a supporter badge though, I'm pretty sure there will be a solution soon ...

    The lack of a lock on the Kiwi3 is no big issue. The back spring is rather strong and you grip the knife by the finger choils; the first one prevents accidentally closing while cutting. If you absolutely have to do a spinewhack with your fingers in the blade path :nah_disagree: well it's your fingers ..
    Otoh I also prefer a folder with lock ...

    Finally found some time and room for a pic:

    Thanks for that Tinker! You got a couple of nice ones there man [​IMG]

    I've been looking around but can't find one of the originals with a lock anywhere, so perhaps I should just give one of the new ones a go then.

    come on people, this is :censored: unfair.
    no idea where the box is now/was, no idea what´s in it.
    no pics, not even a list or so.
    this is kind of frustrating ...at least for me. :censored:

    If he is, there was enough gear in that box to survive for a week!

    Read through the thread a bit closer and all should be revealed (hint: there is a running order in post #2, and the last update on where it was in #187).
    To be a bit more accurate, it should be on its way to myself right now (number 5 on the list) and you are listed as number 9.

    As for pictures, Smashie is indeed somewhat lacking in that department, but it is worth remembering you will only get to see what has been taken from the box - the contents are kept secret until you open it yourself.

    As for frustrations, you will have to get used to it... :eek: Given that every person needs to get hold of the box, have a look through and make their trades, find time to get to the post office and send it on and then wait while the post office do their thing again, it won't be moving super quickly.

    Just hang on and it will get to you soon enough.

    And yes, I will make sure to post a few pictures when I get it in ;)
