Cutlerylover Reverse Auction - Tortured Spyderco Ladybug

I do not know how many of you have heard of Cutlerylover, but he has a very popular YouTube channel that reviews all sorts of knives, zippos, flashlights, etc. His channel has been a personal favorite of mine for a while now.

Well, I am happy to announce that we are working together with Jeff (Cutlerylover), to have a charity auction right in time for Christmas. The auction will be for a Spyderco Ladybug knife that he did a torture test on to see the resilience of Spyderco's H1 Stainless Steel. It was actually very surprising to see what that knife was able to endure.

    This knife withstood:
  • 14 days in a salt-water bath
  • Being frozen in ice, then chopped with a hatchet
  • 5 days in Bleach!
  • Going through a drier under High heat
  • 5 minutes in a wood-burning stove!

The same tests actually made a Victorinox Classic partially dissolve, which was fun to see.
You can find that video here.

For those that haven't seen the series of torture tests, I will show you guys the first one below.

The auction for the Spyderco ladybug will be a reverse auction. It will work like this. The auction will start at a high price, then go down a set amount every 5 minutes until it is sold. Since there is only one in stock, the first one to complete the checkout process will win the knife.

Here's a video of Jeff (Cutlerylover) explaining the whole process.

So, I plan on having an update video soon explaining our progress at Survival-Pax. In the meantime, I hope that all of you guys are staying warm, with all the recent snowstorms across America.

Take care guys!
