I bought the #43 stag proto this week from TSA Knives and received it yesterday. I paid $375.00 for it and it has gorgeous, fat, gnarly stag handles. According to Greg, it is one of one. I'm very happy with my purchase.
It is not easy to obtain an Oregon Knife Collectors Association Club knife. I bought a membership $20. 2019 Club knife GEC#97 Allegheny Antique Yellow jigged Bone with Beaver shield $120 & $20 shipping $160 I pre-ordered the last one ! So happy for you that you found the #43 club knife. I found a Frontier Bone and a orange camel bone #43 with the "S" blade stamping. I eat with my #43 knives.
