    That's a good thing, you do. To many times we get caught up in convention and don't have the purpose of self. For an artist it is a life sentence!

    I apologize ahead of time if this comment should be posted elsewhere. I am going to attempt to add some color to the pile side of my stag HHB. Is it my imagination? It seems to me that this may be something everyone has noticed (me included) and that more often than not stag handled knives, including lambsfoot, seem to be mismatched. Why is it so hard for the manufacturer to match stag (or smooth bone)? I mean, you pay some good money for a premium knife, right? Is it too much to expect matching scales? Yeah I see a few examples out there that are nicely matched but that seems like the minority. I understand the these material are natural and as such all are slightly different but I have umpteen number of trophy antlers that could easily have matched scales made from them. Is it really that hard to do or is it just a cost thing?

    That is one beautiful knife. Give it to me now! Is the tang stamp etched instead of stamped?

    Perhaps this is something you should raise, by PM, with whoever sold you that knife Bill? If you're not happy with it, I imagine they will gladly refund what you paid for it. If not, please contact me, and I'll buy it off you. I'm sure one of the custom makers could make you something with those trophy antlers :thumbsup:

    Great movie! Diana Rigg was brilliant, of course.
    Vincent Price was great, too.

    Have not seen it, but I like all of Vincent Price's films that I have seen. And Diana Rigg was great on The Avengers. I will look for it.

    I'm probably dating myself, but "Who?"

    Edited to add: I think I recognize Vincent Price from The Ten Commandments. I still have no idea who Diana Rigg is though.

    That's a generous offer Jack. I think some people who are newer to traditionals don't realize that the Mark side of a knife is the presentation side of the knife. As a result, some manufactures will put a very nice piece of stag on the Mark side with a lesser piece of stag on the Pile side. It wasn't long ago that some manufactures polished the Mark side of the blade and left a satin finish on the Pile side.

    Vincent Price was in The Ten Commandments. I think he was active mostly from the 1940s through the 1960s, and probably most active in the 1950s. The Fly is another famous film of his. And he did a lot of Edgar Allan Poe films. You should check him out.
    I know Diana Rigg from the 1960s' British television series The Avengers. The was John Steed's partner for two seasons--the best two seasons. My wife bought me the complete Emma Peel ("M[an] appeal") episodes (her character's name). The show was sort of a spy/science fiction series, kind of strange, but very entertaining.

    Price was in it too, I think. One of the bad guys, along with Edward G. Robinson.

    Looks like a great Friday carry, Jack!:cool::thumbsup:
    Cell phones are an incredible thing, but they do have limitations! There's an old saying:
    "It's a hard way to go, but a good way to know, the way the old folks done it".
    I guess that certainly applies today, so many young folks can't navigate, start a camp fire or change a spare tire.

    I like that shot, José! Nice coloring brought out on the covers.:thumbsup:
    Sounds like a real "Thriller"!:D
    Thankfully, what you can't see is me doing my best imitation of Michael Jackson's dancing wearing only my boxers!:eek::p

    Love this knife!
