    Thanks for posting those @navin74
    It was great seeing you, albeit brief. My trip was way too short. I’ll plan on staying longer next year. Had such a great time though!

    There are too many knives and makers to see and meet in only one day. I am glad you made it out and I am already looking forward to next year! Take care.

    Amaaaaazing stag! Good prices on those TB knives, compared to what I have seen them for. I love to see A2 having a renaissance. I have a 5" toothpick which looks much like the A2 Powderhorn.

    I am asking for advice from some of you experts here, because a Tony Bose knife is a hefty investment. Is it better to stick with a bolstered knife with perhaps two blades, or would a shadow single blade like this one be a good choice? I understand personal preference is paramount, but I want to be smart if I am going to take the plunge. Thanks in advance for your valuable input.

    As a general rule single blade knives have the largest pool of interested buyers.

    A Stag Shadow is a rare pattern. If you like the knife . . . . .Buy it!!! I have never regretted any of Tony's knives I have purchased!! And I have purchased some odd ones!!

    Well... Mr. Bose makes a great knife, but some of the prices on the secondary market are crazy. That said, if you are getting it direct from Tony, you’re fine.

    I love that knife by the way. I’m sure if you ever had a problem with it, Tony or Reece would fix it for you also.

    A single blade shadow is my preference for a Bose (I carry all of mine).

    I honestly don't think you can make an error on buying a Bose. If you like the knife, go for it! I would. That looks like a nice one.

    I would like to officially thank all of the Great Enablers here on the Porch! These photographs were taken at Wilfred Works, perhaps by Tony Bose himself, and the great one will be shipping the knife to me on Monday. A 2 Steel with a darkening etch. When my wife complains, I will blame all of you. (Actually, she thinks every knife costs about $100! She always tells me that they all look alike to her. If anyone tells her the truth, I will not be a happy camper.) You will also see me disgorge about half a dozen knives on the Exchange to help defray some of the cost!

    Congrats! Direct from the Ol' Dog himself huh? A bargain!!! You should see what his knives go for on the secondary market.
