[CONTEST] Win A Set of Bronze Skull Beads From Skeleton Knives

This contest has ended. Thanks to everyone who entered with a comment! Stay tuned for more giveaways to come...

When the overhyped zombie apocalypse finally gets here (some day) it will be survival mode for everybody. That will have to include the incorporation of a trusty survival knife and lanyard to get you through the years of reverting to frontiersman like conditions. Now you have a way to easily identify your knife while being skullified at the same time. JT from Skeleton Knives is here today to offer a set of 5 of his 2012 cast bronze lanyard skull beads. These are cast using the lost wax process and since they are bronze should last many centuries. A sturdy piece of hardware guaranteed to last longer than any brain eating ghoul.


PRIZE INFO: One (1) set of five (5) bronze skull lanyard beads from Skeleton Knives.  The skulls include 1-African, 1-Dios de Muertos, 1-Alien Polished, 1-Alien Satin, and 1-Gas Mask. These are made with vertical holes to accept paracord with the exception of the African skull which has horizontal holes. Each skull measures approximately 12mmx15mm. 

HOW TO ENTER: Leave a comment stating a useful tool that you would want to have around after this supposed zombie apocalypse occurs.  In case you can't tell I'm a little skeptical, yet I still want to prepare for the unexpected.

CONTACT INFO: If you win, we need to contact you. With your comment you must include your email address.  Entries are only valid with this information!  You can break it up to avoid spammers(i.e. skulladayfan AT skulladay dot com).


WHERE TO ENTER: All entries must be made on this blog post, on Skull-A-Day.com. You CANNOT enter this contest by commenting on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.


CONTEST CLOSES: 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time Friday, February 22nd.


NUMBER OF WINNERS: One

PRIZE SHIPS: To skull lovers worldwide.  The need for survival is worldwide if not universal.  Everyone is invited to enter.


IF YOU DON'T WIN: You can always get your own skull lanyard beads from Skeleton Knives, as well as a few other useful tools that are as cool as they are enduring.  Thanks for sharing your work with our readers, JT, and for helping to properly prepare us for whatever may happen.

Go buy a tactical shovel now! Then sharpen it and decorate it with these cool skull beads. You will not only be safe, but bad-ass.

Tool? I need no tool, I have my fists! That's all I need.

A sword. Swords don't need reloading. They do need awesome skull beads, however.

A SOG PowerAssist multitool, that'd be my choice, would look mighty good with a lanyard and skull-beads :)

A sonic screwdriver, of course! :-)

I gotta suggest 2 'cause you're going to need a gas mask for sure but also make sure to pick up a water purifier. You won't get a chance to use a weapon or any other tool for that matter if you can't breathe or die of thirst. - gary (AT) freehandprofit.com

Although a sword would be an awful lot of fun, a shotgun would probably be best for most situations.

Complete set of Mother Earth News. With that, you could build, grow, convert anything you could possibly need. pugsleymcgoo AT sbcglobal DOT net.

Kevin McIntyre said...

I think a machete. Why ruin a perfectly good skull with a bullet? And since the zombie apocalypse is going to be gross, why not make it a *little* grosser?

Hmmm...so many good ideas so far. My instinct is to go for a large knife, no ammo, useful is other ways. Then I also saw a few comments about water purifiers and such. I think the one tool I would like to have is access to a library. That way I would never be bored (since there would be no Skulladay to keep me happy), and I could learn to do pretty much anything as far as survival goes. Guess I'll have to put these skull beads on some book marks! :D

A scythe. Not only will nobody have time to cut grass so it will come in handy for that, but it would be great with one swoop for cutting of zombies heads and you could pretend to be the grim reaper :D faithspicer1@yahoo.com

Those beads are amazing!

Helvis Presley said...

My tool of choice would be an old fashioned two ended can opener.
#1 - to survive you'll probably be eating a lot of canned food
#2 - sharp end can be used as a weapon
#3 - sharp end can be used as a carving tool (leave messages carved in a tree)
#4 - dull end can be used to peel fruit.
#5 - sharp end might be useful to sharpen sticks for a stabbing tool

These skull beads would be an awesome indentifier on your can opener.

sorry, forgot my email address

My bike. No gas required, but would allow me to remain mobile - ahead of the advancing zombie hordes.

I would choose an aluminum bat. A shotgun would be nice for a while, but doesn't swing as well. When you run out of ammo. The aluminum bat won't crack and splinter. And is light to carry and for skull crushing. Electronicmonk1@gmail.com

I would take a bow and arrow! You have to practice but if you are neat, you can even make your own ammunition! Saver than a knife and more convenient than a gun!

RFrench said...

All the comments here re: weapons make perfect sense, but this is Skull A Day guys!

With that in mind, The tools that are necessary for sanity -- that is in turn necessary for long-term survival -- are... Sculpture tools.

I would stay sane enough to survive by sculpting a skull a day!

Good for all the wine the zombies won't need (and I will ;-) and pretty good for defense as well.
