No offense intended Rick but I've just never been able to warm up to that Dead Skunk Handle. ::smirk::


None taken Greg and I do know what you mean. Several years ago when the Dead Skunk Calf Ropers came out I didn't want one for the same reason. The ones I saw photos of were unattractive to my eye. Then I saw one that I actually did like and snatched it up.

I'm not quite sure if GEC made some kind of change this year to the DS or not but for some reason I like almost every one of these DS 14's that I've seen in GEC's pictures. Hope I don't end up getting one of the few I don't like from those pics.

The Grand Prairie Knives SFO dropped about a half hour ago if anyone wants one and didn't know.

Wow! Oldtowne Cutlery certainly has an attention getter! That's some of the brightest smooth Greenbone I've ever seen.

Got these guys in, these are my 1st 14’s and I definitely see why this is a popular pattern for EDC. Really like these. Lyle, I’ve been carrying a smooth white bone 78 for a few weeks now and I really like the white bone. Can’t wait till yours comes out sir.

Me either, all are spoken for and then some more in line. Being after all the single blds. may discourage some buyers though.

Lyle, I'm thinking yours may very well be the best of the bunch. Looking forward to seeing them in production.

I think so, but I’m a tad biased.

Very nice Greg. I think it's a Gunstock Jacks SFO. There should be one in my P.O. box waiting for me.

I did get this guy though and I’m really liking it. It has a lot more depth in the yellow bone than I thought it was going to.

That's correct Roland. The smooth amber bone has a slight hint of red to it . They look very nice.
