    Thank you for the kind words Will, I certainly appreciate it. It can certainly be recovered easily enough, but I’m with others in thinking it looks pretty good, the color is good, and at first glance it didn’t look like anything had been done to the jigging. On the other hand I know that gnawing feeling of what you perceive as a mistake whether anyone else would ever notice it or not.

    Exactly, and its that's gnawing feeling that keeps me from carrying this one. Its perfectly functional and would serve its purpose just fine, but I can't help but to focus on those perceived mistakes. I'm glad to have your input, as I'll likely be in contact with you if I decide to have it recovered, if your willing.

    This knife is such a good user, with natural materials the covers will change and mature over time. I personally like that.

    Honestly, I'd carry that one with pride in a heart beat. No one is more critical of me than me so I know where your coming from, but I think it looks pretty darn good:thumbsup:

    Oh, yayyyy! It worked! I'm so glad you found yours, Will! I'm also glad to see that the sheepsfoot rubbed off on you... Pays great dividends in the handling on that frame
