This contest is completed. Congrats to Sean R. who was our winner.Even though you can’t win anymore, feel free to try the puzzle. You might have some fun and learn a thing or two. Read on…

Since we are all stuck inside, we here at Knife Magazine thought you might want a bit of a diversion. We already know you like to win free knives. In this case it is a Spyderco Native 5 in S30V. There are 3 ways you can submit an entry. Just fill the puzzle out online (you will be prompted to submit when finished), or print and fill out a paper copy and email me a photo (clay (at) You can download a PDF to print by clicking here. There is also an embedded version you can click on at the bottom of this post.

We know that some of these clues are a bit esoteric and might not be known to your average knife user. Never Fear! Almost all of the clues come directly from the Knife Glossary. You can “CRTL-F” search for the key words from the clue and you will get the answer.

If you are not familiar with our Knife Glossary, you can find it under “The Vault” menu tab. The Vault—>Knife Glossary. The glossary contains more than 200 entries, and is our attempt to establish a uniform list of terms so writers, makers, and collectors can communicate effectively and without misunderstanding. Check it out, and if there is a term you feel should be on it that isn’t, please leave us a comment.

As mentioned, we are giving away a Spyderco Native 5 in S30v to one person who completes and submits their puzzle by next Wednesday, April 1st – no foolin’.

This one was given to us at SHOT Show, by Spyderco, to pass along to you.

So kick back with a tasty beverage, put your feet up, and give the puzzle a try. The embed is below, but I think that the link is the easiest method in my opinion. Remember, you can look for the answers in the Knife Glossary.

Have fun, be safe, and win steel. Be well everyone.

Editors Note: I tried several “Crossword Generators” to make this puzzle, before settling on I paid for a one-time use to make this one, and they have since comped us a membership. This post has already proven to be quite popular, and we have received a lot of great feedback. We will definitely be doing this again. Thanks CrosswodHobbyist, and thanks everyone for participating.
