    Here is my latest Davis that I told myself I wasn't going to buy! Too big, too heavy and I already have a Davis dressed up in Sambar stag. However, I really liked the bolsters, which are made from some eye-catching HHH Damascus. Also liked the Sambar stag ... and the scales on the other Davis I have are amber-dyed. But the size of the Alabama Damascus blade was bigger than I like, measuring in at 3.375". And ... with that stag and all of the Damascus, the knife weighs in at 4.3 ounces. Again, too big ... especially sitting in the bottom of my pocket. Not to mention that I really would not want Alan to put a clip on this one to cover up any of that stag. Then Alan went and did it. After carrying this one around in his pocket for a day, even he felt it was too heavy. So he offered a belt sheath with this one. That solved all my problems!!! The rest is history. All of the materials on this one go together perfectly. As always, Alan did an absolutely super job.

    Great news. Alan was featured (again) in Blade Magazine. Page 67 of the July issue, in the "What's New" section highlight's Alan's Mammoth folder with engraved bronze bolsters (a knife which is near and dear to me, since it's in my collection!). Congrats Alan.
