Whassup Jer??? Things got a little hectic over at BF, so I'm takin' a vacation! I'll have to take more of this 'time off'. :roll:

Evan doesn't do mod work anymore. Here's a sample of his current full custom work:

This is a Lanny's Clip he made for me (Tony Bose Pattern):
lanny's one.jpg

Tony taught Evan quite a few 'tricks of the trade' at his shop in IL. Evan made this one for me with mill relieved SS frame, cpm35VN hand-rubbed blade, bronze blade pivot bushing, fluted bolsters, and mammoth ivory covers from a tusk off a beach in Alaska. The mammoth tusk was found by a dearly deceased friend and WWII war hero that was a navy pilot on the Ticonderoga through most of the major battles in the South Pacific, so the knife has some sentimental value already.

That is a FANTASTIC Lanny's Clip. It has the best 'flow' to it of any L.C. i have seen. Every Lanny's is a little bit different. This one has every aspect dialed in perfectly and they all flow together perfectly.
Barry i don't think it's possible for you to have a better knife than this Esynx L.C.
Thanks for sharing it.

Great story Barry, especially the bit about finding the tusk on a beach in Alaska and using it. Believe it or not, here's one of my favorites with three pieces of ivory I carved from a tusk found on a beach in Ekuk, AK on Bristol Bay, found by a very dear friend who gave me the ivory. He was out bank combing and spotted a piece of tusk. The color is great and goes all the way through, not like superficial bark. Deep, rich, ancient color made by Mother Nature and God and lots of time. Incredible stuff and so much better than man-made. Thanks for sharing a beauty and great story.

Evan is a gifted knife artisan. I hope one day to get my hands on a real-deal ESNYX custom. Incredible teardrop, Barry! ::tu:: I love that gunstock jack, too.

That "hectic" thing seems to happen fairly often at BF. ::hmm:: I wonder if they might keep more contributing users if things were a little calmer over there...

Anyway, glad to have you posting here for however long it lasts! ::handshake::

As a newby collector, threads like this are dangerous. They cause tremendous drooling on my part. Just wanted to say thanks for posting such gems!

Barry you definitely have some of the very best GEC knives. For example, your White Owl, what amazing Snakewood !
Here is one of my favorites, a #85 with a saber ground spearpoint blade. Most have a full flat grind. The saber grind makes for a more 'dramatic' looking knife.

Love that Smooth Autumn Gold bone KJ, but can't believe you didn't put that white Elephant Hawthorne in here? Good score, great piece there, you interstate smuggler you. Good show, got one past the gestapo banners too. God bless the ivory that gets through the ban. That makes two of us this week.

Barry, the Snakewood is very attractive and the chain is a classy touch. ::tu::
