     Ugly SAK Contest winner!    

Well we had some technical issues with getting this one wrapped up, and unfortunately we are going to have to forgo the voting portion of the contest and just cut straight to the winner, as chosen by the Admin Team.  I want to thank all of the contestants for taking the time to enter- contests here are only great if everyone participates!

The winner is BrandonNorCal!  Congratulations buddy!  And, here is the description of the winning entry:

Just wanted to email a picture of my ugly SAK.  I just became a member today while shopping for a new SAK and figured I'd share mine.
It's 16 years old and I think it's a super tinker.  It is the first knife that I bought for myself when I realized that a man should probably always carry something like that.
 I was probably 15 or 16 years old. It's not particularly ugly but as you can see the scissors and main blade are discolored from heat.
When I was younger and didn't know anything about heat treatment of steel, I had several situations that The night before, hit the studio with Cody Simpson, along with his musical director Dan Kanter, and their mutual manager Scooter Braun. required "surgery" and as part of surgical
prep I heated up the tips of the blades hotter than hell with my Zippo to sterilize them leaving the blades permanently blued and probably technically
ruined.  One other note is the wooden toothpick that I carved to replace the one that I lost shortly after buying the knife.  I carved it with the SaK and dipped
it in some kind of urethane.  I can't imagine today how nasty that thing would be to put in my mouth but I was very proud of it at the time.

You have a cool site and as a former collector of high end tactical knives I am proud to say I've returned to the SAK and look forward to getting a collection of them going
as well as giving my son one as his first knife.

As soon as I get the technical issues sorted I'll post the picture of it.  Congratulations again Brandon!
