    Agreed - that, IMO is the best ASCB I've seen.

    Love how dark the dye took to your knife. Just out of curiosity, is the pile side the same?

    It's pretty sweet! I was on the fence with the spear point, as I have had a spear #77 that I used the heck out of but I fell in love with clips. I'm gonna keep this one. It's great! The bone is gonna eventually look like white saw cut bone too.

    Those were the covers I was hoping for. Congrats Taylor, such a nice piece.

    I'm generally not one to feel much in the way of genuine jealousy, but your 77 almost has me there, haha.

    I got my Red Sawcut today and it's awesome, but your amber is really something special. I should have tried something new (the Amber), but now I can hope it is offered on the next run.

    Thanks! I was so close to getting a red, but I wanted something different for my 77 collection and this one hit the spot. Every 77 in my opinion is special, but I must have had some good knife karma!

    You're welcome! I'm looking forward to seeing it "age" in your care! :thumbsup:

    You get nice patina, and that knife is going to be stunning with a dark patina on the blade!

    A beauty for sure! Looks like GEC is matching the covers quite well on this run, from what I've seen. :thumbsup::cool:
