    That was one sweet Cherokee Rose, it was very difficult to send that one back. Without doubt the nicest one I've ever held. The size and weight were just perfect to me.

    That blade looks like liquid steel. Nice checker work Bawanna! This one will make someone very happy.

    The checkering is beautiful, but what really makes this Cherokee Rose rare is that it doesn't have the large, S-shaped guard that is typical of the model.

    I like the guard, but I also like the sleek shape that this blade has without the guard. It's a fine variation on the model.

    I love it. Yvsa is probably cussing up a storm from somewhere in the universe, though;) He fiddled and fiddled with the Rose design to get it just so:D I have to admit, I really dig its more subdued look. Gorgeous work by Mr B and mighty kind of Howard to part with it. Good job:)

    Unless it was sharked it looks like it's still homeless. I knew I should have never sent that

    It does, it truly does. I didn't note the guard being missing but it handled marvelous.
