Here are mine. I like that the Desert Ironwood one has a burled look. I think it is kind of unique.

http://www.engravingextraordinare.com/ I was looking for a while to see about getting scroll work done on a knife and could not decide. I ended up getting two whalers when they first came out and thought OK let's try it. I was more than pleased with the end result.

I ended up with an extra Desert Ironwood #46 Whaler. I mailed it off and 4 months later, I got this gem back. Mammoth Ivory with superb fluted bolsters. Here is a few pictures:

Just happened to check my email at the right time today. Gunstock Jacks had 5 or 6 Whalers that were NOS. I wasn’t fast enough to get an ironwood but did score a muscle bone. Can’t wait to see it and post it.
