I don't know if this is your style or not but for your 3rd, may I suggest a #48 Improved Trapper. Last I looked there were still a few floating around out there. Can you tell it's one of my favorites? :)

One of the all time favorites, '13 smooth ivory bone 85 Bullet End EZ open out for oil change, clean, wax, buff, snap a few shots, carry around, maybe switch it in to blade of the day. Bought it years ago from Volcano/Hurricane Q who gave me a great deal and great knife and great memory, hope you're riding out the storm safe and sound and thanks again for the sweeeeeeet knife.

This was an early #23 in smooth bone with spey blade.

Now a re-profiled blade and handle.... Slicked up action ....lanyard tube added and 'lace' Sheoak scales. (All work done by yours truly)

Great blue color there Bomba, what do you cut to get that hue? Looks cool. Chalky blue I like.

I have shown this one previously but here it is again to compare with the full flat grind on ivoryman's #85.

I started noticing that deep indigo/blue gradient all on the blade the week I happened to be eating a lot of..lasagne. ::shrug:: I'm thinking the citric acid from the tomato had a little something to do with it but I wonder if the cheese and grease might have reacted with some parts of it - there are some faint oranges and even a reddish hue in some areas of the blade that are hard to pick up in pics. My 81 is a NF with the same steel and polish but it hasn't gotten all psychedelic for me like this has.

I do wish GEC would run more of those fat saber grind spears (or maybe Wharnies - HINT HINT) without giving it the full Northfield treatment which often runs itself right out of my price range. Can't we get a blue camel bone 85 with a stout saber-ground spear? Heck I'll go for that sweet autumn bone KJ has. Christmas will be here before you know it, GEC!

Welcome Travis. Good looking 43 which is a great knife, but, do you have any others ? You do need a few GEC's. Some of us (not me of course) have a few GEC's, like 50, or 75, you know, a few. Over 100 is a "lotta" GEC's.
