Thanks for that heads-up!!!
Sheepsfoot for 2020 (maybe)
Should be next up! I can't wait for that!
Much better luck with the CC Ironwood than the stag. Happy with this one

I so want to join this club...
that made me laugh, especially after the never ending 14 SFO frenzy that happened.
here is a GEC Criple Creek 2 blade 14 in iron wood. Action is solid. the shield is not inletted very expertly, but the buffalo and the ironwood make up for it.
these two stag 14s both have great actions and are fit together very well.
the shield on this cripple creek 14 is perfectly inletted and the knife has smooth but well textured stag.
the gec 14 northfield is expertly made and has sweet stag. no need for a shield here, imo, but I would never say no to a northfield unxcld shield.
That Northfield has some stunning Stag. You got a great one.
All it takes is money.
Ok I guess I lied...I wasn't done with the 14's This wasn't even on my radar but it was a deal I couldn't refuse. I envision this one will look good with some pocket wear and proper use over time and I appreciate the imperfect nature of it.
I had some Stag in my pocket today. This one is nice and dark, almost looks like caramel on the smooth parts.
It's what happens when your 4 odd thousand miles away
And the willingness to ship a knife said miles...
Some amazing examples of stag up here
I am a carrier of small knives and admired this batch of 14’s with the clip blade. @Chief was generous enough to give this one away. I absolutely love it. The thin blade stock, perfect blade shapes and wonderful stag are simply fantastic to the eye and in the hand. This 14 is the first knife to chase the peanut out of my pocket in over a year (don’t tell the cult )
Thanks again John and Merry Christmas to all.
To bump this thread into the new year, here's a pic of a Lick Creek that has been out of its tube for a few months.
My life was more than a little busy last fall, so I was otherwise engaged when the feeding frenzy was happening.
Once things calmed down after Christmas I started shopping for the SFOs that most appealed to me: Snakewood, Gold Bone, and Dead Skunk. The Rust Red Bone and Ebony were happy accidents I stumbled across on the journey, but they’re staying. In fact the ebony came out of my watch pocket for this group shot, and it sits there now.
My youngest daughter “adopted” my peanut a few months ago, but I don’t miss it at all. As others have mentioned, this is a peanut on steroids. It punches way above its weight class.
The ebony #14 sits in my pocket most days too. It's a rugged little user knife.
