    It looks like tiger coral to me.

    Thanks, Joshua. Dove Opener is approaching and I'm faced with a daunting choice for a field knife that day. The Fleming will be there and maybe another.

    Have added two more that I am really happy with, this first one I have posted in other threads, Lloyd Gaucho in old a$$ micarta as he calls it : ) John really showcased his game on this one, F&F is amazing across the board and it fits a full four finger grip with that curve like a dream.

    And just in from Birdvis Knives, his 8th knife also titled #8, Lannys Clip 3 3/4 closed, 01 tool steel, muslin micarta with cross cut micarta shield and brown g-10 liners. Light weight, snappy, clean and tight. Incredible build quality. Look him up on instagram @birdvisknives

    @Duckdog Jarrett makes a super knife, he lives about an hour up the road from me. Love the green burlap :thumbsup:

    What do you think of the blade profile on the Birdvis? It seems to almost have a tanto profile because of how acutely the belly tapers up to the tip.

    You are on the right path, Shawn. Stay the course. And you are too kind.

    That is a fine knife, Drew, and thanks for posting it here. I've been watching his work and need to make a move.

    I've not seen one of these. Again, thanks, Drew.

    You are a lucky man, Jerry,I guess. I would be broke if I was that close.

    Someone else made that observation on the sale post too.. I have never had the pleasure of handling or cutting with a tanto style so far but I like this just fine. I just chalked it up to his artistic/individual take on a Lannys and I like knives that have a little something different about them : )
    Thank you very much!
