    Thank you. Five years or so ago I found this forum while looking for info on a knife I'd picked up. The more I read, the more I bought, the more I liked until here I am. Compliments ensued on my choices which got me where I am. I was an antiques/collectibles dealer for many years and as the saying goes "collect what you like and not what you think will appreciate in value." I only have the porch to thank for my choices

    Amazing collection there Alan!

    This one just came in from Vince.. fossilized whale bone Native. The bone is incredible in person.. reminds me of something between creamy ivory and figured mammoth.. and since I love all things having to do with whales I really wanted this one. Got very lucky =)

    Just wanted to show how I'm sending off one of the John Lloyd stag clamshells. It's a GEC wooden display box lined with rubber padding and a plaque I bought online.

    Thanks, but the smile on my cousins face is worth more than any knife sitting in a drawer.

    Just received these two smaller zulus by John Lloyd.. 3 7/16" closed. Stabilized mammoth bone and stag without a shield. They just keep getting better and better.
