Nice looking Stag on the few that remain. Greg are you thinking $123 is high ?
I paid $101 for the 2 blade with jigged Antique Yellow bone.

It's such a smallknife Roland. I'm thinking $123 might be better spent elsewhere.

The two blade elderberry and golden brown jigged bone versions are now available on SMKW. They are listed under the Cripple Creek brand.

They sure seem to be asking quite a bit on these... Just my thoughts.

Doc Holiday once said that my Hypocricy only goes so far Wyatt. Apparentlly my hypocrisy knows no bounds as I said I would pass on this stag 2 Blade 14. As has happenened before though that is not the case and I shall try to rationalize my purchase by noting that rewards points decreased my purchase price to $93 So what else could I do?

I can't imagine how much their stag handled one will be.

Frank's Classic Knives has the Elderberry and Golden Brown for $5 less than SMKW.

The Northwoods Harrison Bay is a GEC #14. The kudu one sold at $200 (o.k. $199). I have one from ebay for $220. The kudu is translucent, like acrylic. It is attractive but i would not buy a kudu again for this price differential. I'm o.k. with $200 for mammoth but not kudu. Giraffe bone has been 'better' than the kudu and close to on par with the mammoths & the mastodons.

I would agree with that assesment Roland . The kudu is no more than an acrylic handle knife at twice the price I feel cheated. KsF had better get their act together on this next round or customers will be lost.

It is difficult to pass these up with the awesome sambar stag that ALL these knives seem to have. I am kinda confused though, how come your picture doesn't have a clip point blade? Is this a different year's knife? Thanks.

Do you expect that the stag version of the Cripple Creek and the white bone Lick Creek will come out next week?
