    I married up, definitely. I also got her involved; She goes to Blade with me, and I have bought her knives so she has a small but quality collection. Just last week an envelope arrived and when I opened it, there was a box with a knife in it....she had gotten a knife for her NRA renewal. Not often a knife is delivered here and I am not expecting it!

    As long as she is still looking at them and enjoying them, you have not shown her too many!

    Really need a second one "for my Son". He does at least display last years knife in his room. Wonder if that excuse will fly? [emoji56]

    Yup, #2 is locked in. [emoji16]. Better start working on my excuses now because the wife's phone will be dining any second. Not to mention I've got a dozen or so cheapies building a shopping cart over $800[emoji56]. Time to weed that one out shopping cart.

    And to boot, I just discovered Massdrop. Absolutely horrible for impulse purchases. But do have a Mararac Copper aaa light that should show up in a month or so. They've got some pretty good knives on the list too. Trouble abounds. [emoji33][emoji41]

    Not many left. I remember last year when people waited then came back with remorse for not jumping on a very limited one-of-a-kind. Glad I got one for the boy, but now thinking of another one for a future gaw.

    Hi all, I am brand new to this forum and saw this thread. This knife looks so pretty that I just ordered one for myself and one for my son who also collects knives. My plan is that I will get mine and show it to him and let him ooo and ahhh over it and want it real bad. I'm not gonna give it to him, then on his birthday, Dec. 1st, I will give him his. Sounds Kinda mean, but it will be fun. If he doesn't ooo and ahhh enough, I will just keep them both and get him something else. I am fairly new to knife collecting and have some questions. I mostly have spyderco knives so far. My questions about this knife are: what is jigging? What is up with the worms? Is the pattern really made from worms? What kind of animal does this bone come from? And the little metal plate on top of the knife, is that just a decoration, or for engraving, or what? It sure is really Purdy.

    Welcome!

    Jigging is the texture that is cut into the surface.

    The pattern is not really made by worms, but is reminiscent of trails that worm make. A less deceptive term for this style is called "Indian trail".

    The bone is usually cattle, unless otherwise specified.

    The little metal plate, called a shield, is just for decoration. They have been used for engraving in the past, but I think this one is too small for that purpose. Just for lookin at. :)

    Since you mainly collect Spyderco you might want to read up a bit about carbon blade care. Not too much to it, but something you should be aware of.

    Purplelady, I like your style. I often carry a spyderco and a traditional style GEC. You can't go wrong with this knife. Very cool to get your son one too. Stick around the traditional forum, lots of pretty knives to be seen

    It's time to break out the leather and make a new pocket slip. Natural with a little Aussie Cream, light or dark dye, stamped, carved, thick, thin, lined?....oh too many choices. Better wait til knifes arrive. When actual pics go up, the waiting becomes real. [emoji51]
