Teenage sensation Mariah Moore, known as the Escrimadora, who has won a bunch of martial arts tournaments, in forms and in stickfighting, is off to enter the WEKAF World Championships in Cebu, Philippines, later this month.
It's an expensive trip, and to help defray the costs, there are T-shirts and such, and Tribal Edge Knifeworks, has produced a beautiful knife which is to be sold to help.
You can see more pictures of the knife, and a description, on Moore's blog, here.
As I happen to own several knives hand-crafted by a couple of the four bladesmiths at Tribal Edge, I can attest to the fact that they do excellent work.
It's a great-looking knife and it's for a good cause. Look at that hamon.
Check it out.
And while I'm at it, whoever sends Mariah an email and gives her the biggest contribution in the next week (stickgirrl(at)gmail(dot)com) gets a set of rare, bound, uncorrected-proof galleys of my Venture Silk duology, Spindoc and The Forever Drug, suitably autographed.
Tell her I sent you.
