SolWarrior,
I like both colors but actually prefer the lighter.
It will get darker over time. ::tu::

Thank you for the replies, gentlemen. ::handshake:: I liked the tan color too but thought the darker would fit this knife best. I wanted to make sure I hadn't screwed it up :lol: so, thought I'd ask for a consensus from the pros. ::tu::

solwarrior, I too like the dye you put on the leather, did the sheath have a makers mark on the back? Nice! ::tu:: Terry

Terry, the sheath has no markings on the back. The people who make them make several types and sizes. The sheath was listed for $10.95 + $3.00 shipping with a make offer option and I made one of $9.00 & got an immediate "offer accepted" reply. If interested here's the link to his sheaths. https://www.ebay.com/sch/to-gordo/m.htm ... 7675.l2562 I'm not affiliated with them in any way. Some sheaths (like the one I bought - model #1001) have good descriptions but leave out an important part - "made for up to___ size blade" so you have to ask. Thanks! ::handshake::

Thank you John!

Your knife above looks like a handy knife. How long is the blade on that one?

15th century oak on a Sheffield made bowie from planking in an old Yorkshire farmhouse. The harmonious tones in the wood make in difficult to photograph but are from an age around the time America was 'invented'.

This post in in the Red stag posts as well but I figured I would add it to fixed blades as
a tribute to my good friend I loss last march

Here is the only Red Stag I have...bought it from knife maker Andy Hess of Gladstone Mich.
many years ago for my wife...this is her regular carry knife when out in the Mtns.
I post this with sadness as a very, very, good friend, knife buddy, (Don) in Ohio passed away this last march
We talked every week on the phone and emailed even more...
Every time my wife answered the phone, he tried his best to buy this knife from her,
got on her dozens of times over the yrs as he was a Red Stag nut !!!
Here it is, full Stag on Stag
I have really enjoyed this whole fixed blade post as that is mostly what I collect and sell

Just made this larger version on the Western W-31. A local guy looked at the one I showed on here a few posts ago and decided he wanted one only with a longer handle. so this is his knife with a 5 inch handle, still cocobolo wood and same blade design. ::tu:: Terry

I'm a big fan of carryin' a back pocket fixed blade, not too big maybe around 3.25"-3.75" blade tucked into my back righthand pocket. Always feel better using a fb for a lot of smaller chores and it usually gives you a bigger handle to blade ratio and more leverage so you can get a lot more done with a smaller blade. Here's some of my neckers I like to carry in my back pocket from under $25 to custom CPK Hunter/Skinner.

MH,Looks like a bunch of handy back pack knives, I too like a smaller blade, most people used to like the huge blades but not so much any more. How do you make the decision which one to take? ::handshake:: Terry
