The cover star of our May 2011 Total Outdoorsman Issue is a DiamondBlade Goddard Traditional Hunter. The knife is stunning, sharp as hell, and very fine. At $454 it’s not cheap, but it’s a knife that’ll last you the rest of your life–provided you take care of it. It’s a knife that was featured in David E. Petzal’s exclusive list of the “20 Best Knives Ever Made.” Best of all, it’s a knife that could be all yours.

For our “Cover Model” contest, we’re bringing back the very popular Six-Word Story Contest–only this time, the story has to be about a knife. We don’t care if you make your story serious or funny, personal or practical, factual or fiction. Just make it about a blade and make it 6 words–no more, no less. We’ll judge the stories, then award the knife to the writer of the story we enjoyed most.

Once you’ve written your story, share here it on our Facebook page. Only entries written on Facebook will be eligible__. (If you’re not on Facebook, well, consider this your excuse to join the 500 million people around the world who are.) The contest will end Wednesday, May 18, at noon (EST). We’ll announce the winner on Friday, May 20.

Enter as many times as you’d like, and good luck!
