    Working on the handle this week, probably get the sheath finished as well.

    Where is the time going? Well I haven't even started yet but I'm not giving up yet. If I can make some time in the next few days I think I can still make it.

    Alright! Maybe we can start a thread for the posting the final pics.
    We'll need to ask around for someone to draw names from the hat. Any volunteers?

    Hi John,

    I love randomness that comes from atmospheric noise, but I am not sure if that script can do what we want.
    The problem with a generated random list is that it has no idea it's being compared to a source list.

    E.g.

    Source list:
    1: John
    2: Dan
    3: Frank
    4: Ilya

    Randomly generated list:
    1: Ilya
    2: John
    3: Frank
    4: Dan

    You'll see that randomly, Frank (#3 in the source list) would be sending a knife to himself in the random list.
    Probability of this occurrence decreases as the list gets larger. Maybe there is a way to manipulate the random.org script to prevent this outcome.

    I made a php script and forms years ago that did this but can't seem to find them at the moment. I'll see if I can dig it up.
    Also, any gift exchange list site should work.

    Dan

    P.S. Our list is going to pretty small. Someone could check it over and regenerate if there is a match between the source list and generated list.

    Okay... I am utterly embarrassed to say between my business and home and a bunch of stuff that has been going on the ladt couple months, I am not going to be able to complete my new B&T in time for the KITH... :(

    Now not wanting to be a let down, I do have the last B&T I made for myself with the Mauser Birch scales and made from 1095 steel and was wondering if you all feel it would be acceptble to submit this last knife I made for myself in plce of the newest one I didn't complete. If so, I will submit some official pictures asap!

    My apologies gentlemen!!! I feel a bit of heel...

    You would have to check with the officials but its fine with me. Put whatever you have in the hat guy's as long as you made it. I don't think the people on here are that strict about the rules.

    Sure! It's made by you. Whether you made it specifically for the KITH or not doesn't matter. If it fits the general classification or paring/bird & trout, then go for it.

    Yep, if it fits the rules, it should be in.
    As for the sending list, take the original list of participants, minus those who had to drop out and then you can either have it so the first sends to the second, second to third etc, or reverse it or skip a person, 1st -3rd, 2nd -4th. No need for random number switch as it was already random.
    I need to sharpen the knife and sew the sheath. Is there a thread for pics or are we putting them in here?

    We're looking for someone to take addresses and draw names. This will all be done with PMs on the forum. Any volunteers?

    Thanks,

    Tim (admin) has graciously offered to do the draw and facilitate.

    So here's the drill. Participants need to get your name & mailing address over to @Mythtaken.
    Start a New Conversation and let him know. He will in turn contact you after with a recipient's name and address.

    Please do not announce who you are sending to as it will be a nice surprise.


    Thanks,

    Dan
