BD Blades Custom Knife Auction

New Year, New Cedar Key Pirate Festival!

In the spirit of New Year Resolutions, CKPI is pleased to announce a fundraiser for Cayla’s Coats to replace the rained-out 2018 Garb Swap. Cayla’s Coats was our designated charity for 2018 and has not received any funds from this year’s festival. 🙁

We intend to fix that!

Congratulations to Joe Byrd!  His winning bid of $850 was donated directly to Cayla’s Coats and BD Blades will be consulting with him on his custom creation.

A huge “Thank You!” to all supporters who bid in the auction or made donations during this fund drive.  Together with $555 in donations, we were able to raise a total of $1,405!

If ye care not for a new blade (or ye care not for Facebook), we have also provided a link for simple donations to Cayla’s Coats via Paypal – every donation helps. All donations and auction proceeds (100%!) shall go directly to Cayla’s Coats.

Donation Amount:  


All donations are made securely via PayPal directly to Cayla’s Coats. You don’t need a PayPal account to make a donation. Just click “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” on the PayPal login page.

We ask that you open your hearts and your treasure chests and give generously to a worthy, non-profit organization that provides education and support to stop childhood drownings. Their mission of #NotOneMoreDrowning is a worthy effort that we fully support. Many in our pirate community are familiar with the tragedy of childhood drownings – please help us help them put an end to these tragedies.
