I don't know about the tang stamp, but I sure would like to see a pic of the whole knife. Those look like some mightyful purdy scales on that rascal. (From what I can see of them) :wink:

I was thinking I had seen a Hoffritz stamp like that but couldn't recall for sure. That would explain the yummy stag and good design. :D
