    That Snakewood looks great. Snakewood and Curly maple both have the horizontal lines in the wood, but the darker Snakewood looks so much better to my eye than the Curly Maple.

    The shield is a fine touch, think GEC has done Oak leaf before too?
    No crown lifter needed...:D That punch is for boring holes in Maples to extract the syrup :):thumbsup:

    maybe it is my phone but it looks like some jigging is parallel to blades and some is diagonal?

    Do you guys think the stag scales will add to the width of the knife?

    I don’t think they are a BF vendor. Tried to message you, but mailbox is full.

    Got my M&G today...it is a wonderful knife and as beautiful in person as I imagined. The main blade pull is about the same as the Tidioute Burnt Sienna I have...around a 5. In this case, I definitely appreciate it because there isn't a lot of room to grab the nail nick/pull on these and it would be troublesome if the main blade had a strong pull.
    I also appreciate the extras that come with this one. Very well done :thumbsup:

    I flushed out the joints tonight with Dawn and hot water and worked the blade vigorously while rinsing all the soap out. There was some black gunk that came out, along with some little dark pieces of something solid. Dried it with an alcohol bath and compressed air, then oiled the joints with Rem Oil. The action is much improved! The clip is a solid 6 to the half stop and the sheep foot and awl are a 5. Totally subjective of course, but I can see an obvious improvement.
    This pic also shows the actual color of the bone.

    Ding, ding we have a winner!
    The Ebony and that shield are a perfect fit. :cool: I'm a little curious about the etch. Most vintage knives I've seen with the spey etched say "Flesh only". "Flesh blade" seems odd. Not to take away from that beautiful knife, though.:thumbsup:
