It will be downright beautiful. I want to do the color with velvet flocking, not painting. The more I think about it, my scheme will only enhance the value and collectability of the piece. And putting the best knives into it rather than the proper period knives will make it unbelievably desirable. I'm doing it! You talked me into it!! Game on!!

Found a very nice 9885. Half way there!

Yehuda, you're going to be finished before you know it. Have you worked on the display it self? I haven't had the time. That 9885 looks good. ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

No. I'll get around to it. I'm​ not in a rush.

Four more to go!!!!

I have a problem don't I?!

I put my H Böker & Co's Improved Cutlery horn handle stockman in the display. I don't know if this will be it's permanent home, it's in a class all it's own, but it fits and it doesn't quite go with my collection of early Böker bone scale knives. It gives the display flavor.... we'll see.
