Alright, it's time for the Christmas portion of the giveaway. To enter this one, you'll need to take it allll the way back to second grade. Write up a letter to Santa naming at least one bladed implement that you wish you'd get for Christmas. Add an image of said item(s), please. Now, you won't get any extra points if you write it in crayon and take a picture of it for your submission, but that'd be a real winner's move if you ask me.
Please make your submission before midnight, Dec. 25th, 12:00am PST.
Hello Santa!! I really want the Cawood Viking sword for Christmas. My sword budget is exhausted for the year so the only way I will get one if is you stuff it down my chimney while I am dreaming of swords!! I will make sure I leave plenty of doughnuts and cookies out for you!!

This year I have been... Well, I can't think of any specifically bad that I've done, so I guess that counts as being good, right? At any rate, an Albion longsword would be nice... Something like the Mercenary or the Ringeck.
First let me explain. Things didn't always go the way I planned them this year which maybe why I ended up in all those silly exaggerated headlines. The incident involving the airplane wasn't my fault at all and it landed safely. Well almost.
The other unflattering event occurred during a wedding for a distant cousin. Who leaves the keys to a stretch limo in the ignition at a reception with an open bar parked next to the town swimming pool ?
As you can see, clearly not my fault solely.
Now to the reason for this letter. Christmas is coming soon and while there is some validity to my involvement on the above mentioned occasions, please remember there were 363 days this year when I was almost saintly in my day to day activities. Please bear this in mind as I would like to request a Windlass Brandenburg Rapier for Christmas this year.
I have seen the small elfish spies that sit upon my shelves, the ones you have sent to no doubt check up on me and my Christmas spirit, I am sure they will confirm that I should at least be on the semi nice list.
By the time you receive this letter winter will already have come. I'll need a sword worthy of a warden to protect the cold realms. I have enclosed a link to the sword that I had in mind. it will be much better than a red ryder carbine action 200 shot range model air gun at defending the homestead, plus I wont shot my eye out this way.
If you find that I haven't been "sword" good this year, then perhaps you would be willing to send me this dagger. I believe it would come in handy if I ever needed to stab any barrow wrights and it could easily be concealed in a festive stocking for sneak attacks.
There is not many things I would like to see under my tree Then an Emerson designed folding knife, left there for me Now, a machete would look good in my stocking But I have more use from a knife that is locking A sword wrapped in paper is very pretty But its not practical to carry it in the city But even if a folding knife wasn't my present I would still be as stoked as a Christmas peasant
Crayon? Eugh, no, that's for babies! I'm eight years old already, not, like, six!
