Arrow Win the New 18-XRAY Auto

Win the New Camillus 18-XRAY Automatic

April 16, 2005 - GALENA, OH - Ryan Bailey and Darrel Ralph announced today that
Darrel Ralph Designs will celebrate the opening of the 2006 BLADE Show by giving
away four new Darrel Ralph designed 18-XRAY autos from Camillus Knives.

The 2006 BLADE Show runs from Friday June 16th to Sunday June 18th, at the Cobb
Galleria and Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. Darrel Ralph Designs will
exhibit in BLADE Show Booth #68.

"This is our second year in a booth at the BLADE show, and we love the extra space
for our customers to gather and meet at the biggest show of the year,"
Ryan Bailey

Collectors visiting the Darrel Ralph Designs booth will see the latest styles for all DDR
designs, including the new V-III "Twist" Balisong and Gun Hammer GH folder, as well
as the AK-1 SAS AUTO.

But this year, Darrel Ralph Designs will treat Blade Show Visitors to two ways
to win one of his latest combat tactical designs: The new 18-XRAY Auto from
Camillus Knives (MSRP $249.99.)

2006 Blade Show visitors can win one of these true tactical combat automatics in
two ways:

At Booth #68 at the 2006 BLADE Show, Darrel Ralph Designs will give
a new 18-XRAY Automatic folder, free of charge, to the first two customers who

(1) buy a new custom made Darrel Ralph knife at the show, AND
(2) say the name "SAS."

Also, every 2006 BLADE Show visitor on opening day, Friday
June 16th, will have a chance to enter a drawing to win a new 18-XRAY auto.
Tickets will be available at the Darrel Ralph Designs booth and a drawing will be
held the same day for two winners who will each win a new 18-XRAY. All details
will be available at in Booth #68 at the show.

Designed by Darrel Ralph, the Camillus 18-XRAY Automatic folder is the only safe
automatic knife officially authorized for purchase by the armed forces of the United
States. Its national stock number, issued by the U.S. Department of Defense,
is NSN: 1095-01-533-9377. The 18-XRAY is carried on duty by US SOCOM units on
duty in western Asia.

The Camillus 18-XRAY Auto uses Darrel Ralph's patent-pending SAS™ System
to keep the knife in SAFE mode at all times, open or closed. Troops fire the
automatic action with the stroke of one button. The 18-XRAY auto has no
external safety that can accidentally fire in the pocket or close the blade on the
hand. Its CPM 154® stainless steel blade is blackened and serrated for military
use and the heavy-duty aluminum frame is rated for aircraft-egress.

I have one of the 18-XRAYs here to review and I've been using it for everything. This thing has great lines and snaps like a steel trap.

I'm concerned that I'm going to get in trouble with it. Unlike other production knives I own, it draws too much attention. I snapped it open to cut some pine boughs for bonfire the other day, and got three offers to buy it for full price - used!

Another good thing is that it really is official military issue. It has a national stock number and I was able to dig that out of my notebook so that a friend, who has real use for one, was able to buy it at a discount.
