Last year’s battle for best Black Diamond Ring (hat tip to the winner for the seriously incredible ring – rightmost in the link) was hard fought and valiantly won. But this year the battle is bloody — as in we all made knives. Like with our hands.

Seven of the best independent designers around:

Nick Potash
Lauren Wolf
Elizabeth Street
Digby & Iona
Daisy San Luis
Mother of Gideon
• and Fiat Lux

have come together in 2015 to battle for BEST KNIFE in our Annual Maker’s Competition. Each knife is worth $1,250, and just like last year, one of you wins the winner of KNIVES 2015 in our February Raffle. You read that right. One of you wins the best of seven of some of the most beautiful knives made by hand with love & care by one of the best seven makers around. Oh really you can’t even? Actually yes you can and here’s how.

From February 11th to 13th you’ll get to vote on which knife you think is best. Your vote gets you one free entry into the raffle for the winning knife of KNIVES 2015. But you can have up to 4 entries in the raffle and here’s how. Purchase anything from our site now till February 13th and if it’s

50$ to 150$ you score yourself one extra raffle ticket;
150$ up to 400$ for two extra tickets;
400$ + for three extra tickets.

TO TOP IT ALL OFF: we’re hosting our big ANNUAL PARTY & TRUNK SHOW on Friday February 13th with all seven designers in San Francisco, where we’ll announce which designer won KNIVES 2015 + the lucky raffle winner! Last year was a blast but this year we have brought it and brought it hard. Search for the #knives2015 hashtag on our Instagram and socials and may the BEST KNIFE win!
