2018 POS Roundtable

Postby jerryd6818 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 5:42 pm

For anyone who has been sheltered throughout life, POS = Piece Of Shirt. :mrgreen:

Sometime after the first of the new year we gather up choice selections from all the crap we've accumulated during the previous year and send it to some other lucky soul on the forum. We're a little late getting started this year but as the saying goes, "Better late than never".

READ
To quote Philco from a few years ago (updated with current dates) "Participation is totally voluntary. You have from now until the end of the day Friday April 27th to sign up as a participant by posting your desire to be part of the grand exchange here in this thread. YOU ALSO NEED TO SEND ME (jerryd6818) A PRIVATE MESSAGE WITH YOUR NAME AND SHIPPING ADDRESS WHEN YOU SIGN UP. PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CHASE YOU DOWN FOR YOUR SHIPPING INFORMATION. IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE FORUM AND DON'T KNOW HOW TO SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE (PM), ASK. After the sign up period ends I'll put all the participants names into a hat and conduct a drawing to see who you will send a POS knife to. I will post the drawing results here on Saturday, April 28th and will also send you a private message with the name and shipping information for the person you have drawn and are to send a POS knife (or knives) to. You will then have until Friday, May 4th to prepare and ship that POS knife (or knives) to the new owner. Ship as quickly unto others as you would have them ship unto you.

All participants are encouraged to post photos of and comments about their new "treasures" here on this thread."


Rules -- There are none. Old knives, new knives, good knives, bad knives. U.S. knives, foreign knives, all are welcome.

However there are some conventions. It is requested you don't send a pile of parts, whole knives only (tipped or used to death blades are okay). Also nothing that's so rusty you can't get the blades open. Those are not knives, they're just scrap metal.

As for the number of knives you send, it can be one to a brazillion. One knife is not frowned on but then neither is several knives. It's all about personal choice. Here are some examples of what I have sent and what I have received in past POS Roundtables.

If you are new to the forum and curious as to how this thing works, read all 16 pages from the 2014 POS Roundtable thread (or at least until you fall asleep and bang your head on the keyboard). ---► http://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/kni ... e&start=30
