Facebook Profile Pic Competition

Two weeks ago we ran a little competition on Facebook.
We asked our fans to change their profile pics to reflect their favorite Cold Steel item or items.
We had over 100 entries and Lynn picked his favorite 12 - each one received a copy of our new DVD Never Unarmed.

Lynn really enjoyed looking at all of the entries, and he's planning many more competitions for the future.
