    Knivesshipfree (not affiliated with the site) gave away 1000 Buck Bantams for children with their names engraved. Some jerks ruined it as they took advantage of kindness, and they charged 10 dollars a knife to reduce the chance of it happening again.
    10 bucks for a Buck Bantam, with your kids name engraved, sign me up! 2 of my kids are old enough for them, the last one will be a while, but I figured one day he'd look at his Sister's blades and say Dad why did you skip me?!?!
    With 3 to compare, great blade! Fit and finish is on par, and sharp like all Buck blades I've bought. Not a bad example in the bunch.
    Ok, time for pics:

    Yeah, that was really cool of him. I got kicked out.....I have triplets but don't expect him to believe that.


    Can you imagine it was like 4000 knives. he would have gone broke. What a bummer!

    I should add that my boys have been in Northwood knives. Derrick spoke to them, of course he did say," stop touching the glass.". hahahaha

    He gave away 4,000 and now he's facing 3 lawsuits. Some ruin it for all. One douche ordering 9 for example.

    Ordered one for my son and gladly paid the $10. I wish he would have started out making a minimum donation at least to weed out the POS's that ruin all good intentions. Those people over there at KSF are some good people. :cool:

    One lawsuit was for him not sending 3 knives, one was for not sending the same knife?? Derrick didn't explain the third. Welcome to SueSA.

    That seriously pisses me off. No one deserves anything, he was beyond kind and this is what he gets?

    Wow! What a joke people are so freaking weird lol. That really is some :censored: though. Derrick had the best of intentions but there are just way to many jerks these days.

    It's really sad people are :censored: and ruined this awesome thing. I don't have any kids yet (thankfully!), but I did pass along this to a buddy of mine who is a knife nut and his young son is becoming interested in knives as well. Unfortunately by the time I got around to telling him about it the program had gone on hiatus because of the overwhelming response and the complications. Now that the program is back up and running (revised edition) I just text him to let him know. Still a cool deal and an awesome thing the guy is doing. The name engraving is the part that makes it really special in my opinion. I'd have been stoked to receive this as a gift when I was a kid.

    I have five kids. If I had known about this generous offer and ordered one for each kid, would I also be a douche? These kind of comments get threads locked or deleted so please keep them toned down.

    I do agree with you on principle though that there will always be folks who take advantage of people, organizations, and even businesses.

    The idea was it for it to be the kids first knife not their 10th.

    Ordering 9 and trying to sell them is definitely douche material.

    Understandable, and I'm not arguing that it wasn't wrong, but again, he didn't illustrate the entire story so what was I to think, hmmm?

    It's got its moments. But the majority of the time, it's awesome.:)
