    It’s terrible @Railsplitter, this knife affliction. Ha! ;)

    I was intrigued by the Otnat when it was first released, but resisted it. That Ram’s horn is just fantastic. The snakewood pushed me over the edge. This is definitely a unique offering in many ways. No risk of really duplicating anything I already have here.

    I'm glad you didn't bring the snakewood out on the drop point. I can keep my money for a while longer now. ;)

    Ok, the die is cast.... when I get home, I'm ordering a snakey-knife. The horn ones are amazing looking, so I might be tempted to cross over, but right now, it's Snakewood.... maybe I can get Mike to pick a really highly figured one for me....:cool:

    .... all my money is going north of the border.. :(

    ... but I'll be getting good stuff in return! :D

    That horn is just fantastic! :thumbsup: Once I get one of these wood versions in hand, the Ram’s horn could easily follow.

    Mark you're right, LionSteel's horn really is fantastic! Everything I've seen from them has been first rate, their Snakewood should be excellent. I look forward to seeing yours.

    Mmmmm Snakewood... always a good choice.

    Here's a shot of my ram's horn with the snakewood duo. Love the ram ... but oh my, that snakewood!! I have the Dom, Roundhead, and Shuffler ram's horn. They are great too ... but the handle and blades on the 02 series (especially the Otnat) are, at least for me, perfect!

    I don’t think this example is quite as brilliant as Dennis’, but this model is a winner. I REALLY like this.

    It’s a great size in every way. I don’t think you get a good feel for that in the knife only pics, so I’ll share some in hand as well.

    Kudos to Mike and Lionsteel on this project. :thumbsup:

    Really like the look of the Ram's Horn, beautiful and durable. But I wonder about the Snakewood, I mean so often wood arrives in fantastic shape but it can dull and lose grain quite quickly...at least certain types, Bocote, Coco.
