Your going to like that 35. The awl is very useful. The edge on my awl is fairly sharp, and makes a great scraper as well.

Like how you worked that 35 over Monk, looks almost new. Great swap, and a very fine set of bones you have there. Scored.

Here's my 43 Oregon fresh out of the tube. I thought they were all lighter in color from some last minute buffing at the factory but the first one I see on Instagram is a nice dark brown color just like in the production pics. I asked the dealer for a darker one but I guess this is all they had. ::shrug::

Handles might darken if you use it & natural skin oil gets into the bone ? Happens with ivory which is colored about like your knife.

I think you got a winner there. Like that lighter one better than the darker ones I've seen.

A beautiful knife like that is bound to rust in that damp Seattle weather. Better send it to a dry environment for safe keeping. Did I say beautiful?

I just found a single blade Stag #56 with fairly nice Stag that is described as 'not fat'. It was on the site of a custom knife dealer who only just now has become a GEC seller. This is my only 56. I held off buying 'one of everything'.

Just added picture of my 2010, 56 pattern, with a strong looking clip blade, for comparison. Although a spearpoint blade is traditional in a dogleg jack, i think with the 56, the clip blade makes for a more attractive knife.

Roland that is very nice stag on the single blade 56. How is the action on the blade? After I flushed and re-oiled mine 4 times I got a pretty smooth open on mine. I think however I prefer the action on the 78. It is just hard to beat the walk and talk of a knife with half stops IMO.

The frontier bone 43 is a man-sized knife. ::tu::

Tony that one looks really nice. ::tu:: I'm trying to hold off till the stag shows up. Maybe I'll find another thin one. ::groove::
