    You forgot the "Smooth and Polished Elk" option. :D

    I've got it!!! Mark side gets Elk, pile side gets Ironwood. If you are feeling like using a wood handled knife for the day, flip it over in your pocket before pulling it out. Other days, make sure the elk side is facing you when you use it. And, it would be a hit at parties. Imagine all the magic tricks you could pull off!

    Smooth and yet sort of knobbly
    Polished and yet handsomely figured.
    Elk has something for everyone.
    Are these GECS in the vicinity of what ours will be like?

    Those are nice, that might sway a vote for polished elk assuming ironwood can’t pull off a late upset...

    Remember one man's trash is another man's treasure. If Elk wins, there could always be a swap meet. Swap fat elk with skinny elk and vise versa.:)

    Hmmm ... The %ages are off.
    They only add up to 99.9%
    39.3 %
    49.7 %
    10.9 %
    99.9 %

    Does this mean there will be a recount?

    I voted micarta but was planning on buying this Buck 301 regardless of the flavor it comes in.

    It won't look like that GEC Elk......which is coloured or burnt ;)

    Horesheads are being prepared for despatch for anybody toying with the idea of defecting from Burlap.....:D:cool:

    I was thinking smooth and polished. It never crossed my mind that you wouldn't polish smooth elk. Now that I think about it, splitting the poll into three choices would be a clever way to help knobby elk win as it would split the smooth elk voters into two camps and dilute their votes ...

    I think the line should be drawn with this poll.

    By the time we poll down through all of the minutia, we might thin this down below the minimum SFO quantity. Bumpy, smooth polished, or something in the middle? Then we could do shade from light to dark.

    Besides... what’s the difference between smooth polished elk and any other bone?

    Elk won, let’s get some natural scales on this thing and keep moving forward!

    I think posting photos and swapping disappointments for happiness is a great idea!
