    WOW! What a piece of nature and craftsmanship joined. Instantly makes you consider the animal it came from. Absolutely unique and beautiful.

    I can't believe how many post were created since my last visit, I have a lot to check out and like but first here are some of my pics. Mine has a mixture of light and dark color to it, I like it. The best part is the groves or texture or whatever you want to call it in the horns, besides looking unique it sure does provide a good grip, it feels great in my hand. Kudos to Mike and BF for another forum knife.

    I have to admit, even though I didn't vote for it, I'm liking what the Ram Horn does for the knife...
    It makes it look much more "traditional". ;):thumbsup:

    It reminds me a little bit of this "white" ebony that Perceval uses.

    @Half/Stop I Love your dark one. The way the lines mirror the curve of the frame !

    Thanks, everybody! It's absolutely growing on me. :cool::thumbsup:
    I appreciate that every one I've seen so far has had the grain properly matched and oriented to mirror the curve of the frame. Well done!

    That's why I voted for it. (at least, I think I did. I don't remember all the choices) It still basically looks like a modern knife to me, but the variation in natural materials balances out the modernity. Imagine if we had gone with micarta or carbon fiber. I'm sure they would look great, but they'd all look the same.

    I like how the horn was selected on these "contemporary traditionals"!:)
    Oxymoronic, in a good way!!:D
    Looks like I will be shipping to the Canadian customers - can someone measure the box, and take a pic of it for me?? I want to be ready so I can fire them out the door!!:rolleyes:

    There have been some real beauties posted already, notably @r8shell @Half/Stop and @GE Jr . I’m thankful to have received a blond and brunette and appreciate all of the hard work that way out into making this year’s knife come to fruition.

    This one arrived yesterday. Nice dark horn on mine, it looks almost like buffalo horn. Couldn’t be happier, thanks Mike!
