    No small mammal comb, I might pick one up :confused:

    Wish they would of done a clip point because they just did drop point on last run.

    I am thrilled to death that we are moving on from beard combs and forks - not that there is anything wrong with such things (I like the BTK) - but it's somewhat refreshing to be back to business as usual.

    I am hoping to at least score one in Stag - maybe a couple others if I'm feeling frisky.

    Anyone got any pics of their old 74's to help make the decision? Ill probably try for the brown micarta.

    just noticed the threads surrounding this one are both 74 pic threads.

    Is the 74 big, medium/small, or little/tiny?

    Sorry. I don't know the size of most of their pattern numbers yet.

    It is comparable to a sodbuster jr.

    They are 3 7/8" closed. I'd say a medium sized knife - maybe on the upper end.

    They feel big till you hold a 23. Then they feel cute and diminutive.

    What's the over/under on a stag with shield? Probably not happening right?

    Those look awesome. Going to be a hard decision between that and stag.

    That’s the one I want. Ironwood on my 62 is beautiful.
