This marks 5 years that TSA Knives, LLC has been running auctions and selling certain store items to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. If you’ve bid on items or donated items to be auctioned, give yourself a pat on the back for the ongoing support.
A few weeks back I mentioned a special donation for a Wounded Warrior Project Auction made by Mike W or “mike-in-japan” as he’s known on Ebay. It was pretty cool that Mike offered to donate the knife that started this whole thing back in 2009. And to make that donation in honor of his daughter Amanda, who is one of our Wounded Warriors, is incredibly special. I’m not publishing Mike’s last name due to the security risks to members of the military and their families. Here’s the email he sent me a couple of weeks ago…
At the time of the original auction in 2009, I had GEC engrave “Wounded Warrior Supporter” on the blade. You’ll also notice this goes back to the days when GEC was etching the blades with the “PPP” Premier Pattern Production on their first release knives.
That first auction ended on November 1, 2009 and I thought it might be appropriate to celebrate 5 years of doing these auctions by ending this 5th Anniversary auction on November 1, 2014.

A couple of reminders. If you haven’t posted on the blog before, your post won’t show up until it’s been approved which doesn’t happen until I get to it. I also encourage last minute bidders to NOT wait until the last minute. Servers can go down, bids can get delayed, etc, etc.
