Check out Cutlery News Journal’s YouTube Channel for the entries as they come in. I’m linking them to the 2009 My Favorite Knife Video Playlist.

Everyone has a favorite knife. And I haven’t met a knife owner who doesn’t get excited and want to tell about it.

video-contestHave you ever thought about making a video to share the story of your favorite knife? Now is your chance. Oh, you don’t feel comfortable recording yourself, well then, what if I told you the Grand Prize Winner takes home $200 cash and other prizes? Oh, you think you are interested after-all? Good.

The submissions will be judged primarily on originality and creativity on the theme of My Favorite Knife. It is as easy as shooting a home movie.

Let’s have some fun and share the passion. Don’t know anything about uploading a video to YouTube?  Your kids will show you.
