Thanks Ivoryman .I like the 56 very much so far and I'm guessing you'll like yours as well when it arrives. First micarta handled knife for me as well and I'm digging the handle material more than I thought I would. Good solid feeling knife and a nice user size and pattern IMO, I've carried it 6 days straight now. Would enjoy hearing your opinion of the knife after yours arrives.
The Bird Dog just came. First canvas micara for me. Pretty cool, love the blonde color, the look of texture and fabric pattern. The grip is good, thought it would be more slick. No flaws on this one, everything like it should be. Very thin in the pocket. Very thin. Nice size and the action is interesting with no half stop or squared tang. Smooth, consistent open and close. Doesn't feel like it will snap shut on me like square tangs and half stops kind of do. This one is less aggressive. But still solid no wobble lock up. Great knife so far. Only thing that I"ve never seen before is the brushed bolster finish and they scuff just by looking at them. They scuffed up in the shipping, they have marks already. I can live with it because it is still interestingly different from my others bolsters and it looks bright and white instead of mirror whatever color it is reflecting. Is what it is. And it's different, that's worth something. I don't want everything the same. Definitely a cool feel and look. For the money you can't go wrong either. And they must be popular, sold out the first day. Glad I grabbed one and you were right.
