I have a Serpentine Stockman with vintage rag micarta scales.... and a Trapper with presentation grade Indian Sambar. Both beautifully made.

Your first one? Your going to love it! John does a great job of constructing and finishing. The articulation is superb to center and open. Snap is great! Make sure you post a picture here! I want to see it. :D

Thanks Steve! The vintage rag Micarta Stockman doesn't photograph well... you should see it in the sunlight.

The smooth bone scaled Trapper that "wlf" posted above and the Damascas bladed one "JohnR" posted... are blowing me away! ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::
