    That's the one that caught my eye right away! The jigging on the wood is kind of unique and the wood itself is gorgeous. I've been on a modern knife kick for a few years and that's the main thing I miss about traditionals is the wood, stag and bone handles.

    Oh joy... Another round of "Why isn't my camel bone blue enough?" and "Why don't the sides match?" :D

    Wow, those blue camel bones knives will be stunning. Are those an SFO?

    Could be worse, could be pink elderberry camel bone. I wonder how long it will take before we see a dye job done on one.

    Yes, SFO for Kifer. Should have the Kifer propellor shield as well.

    Not usually a micarta fan, but the color and texture of this is really sweet! I could live with this one!

    It wouldn’t be bad if it wasn’t for that horrible etch of O’l Mr. Lincoln chopping wood. Makes me wonder if they are gonna put Ringo Starr and Thomas the train on the 33 Conductors.

    Yeah, if you're going to put something on a blade, make it a quality line illustration in the scrimshaw tradition. Clip art just cheapens a high end quality knife.

    Real easy to flitz off an etch.

    Not that folks aren’t entitled to complain.

    E4D0D6F9-F1A0-4AF6-B50E-A4EC5024020B.jpeg Well, look what came today! Excellent fit and finish with a pull almost as stout as my original #23 about a 6+. E4D0D6F9-F1A0-4AF6-B50E-A4EC5024020B.jpeg

    Should’ve saved the blue camel bone for a short run of Thomas the tank engine 33s. Complete with a railroad spike shield.
