    Came home to find a gorgeous new slippie in the mailbox. I had been resisting buying something from Ray because I prefer patterns with rear bolsters and he almost never offers that. But this one looked too good to resist:

    Compared to my Nowland Saddlehorn, this thing is a horse of a knife. 4 1/4" closed length, blades are 3 1/4" long and ~3/32" thick:

    Wow... that is gorgeous! I thought it was probably a tiny knife, until you mentioned its size. Thanks for the pics!

    I have a Nowland Saddlehorn so I can appreciate the comparison. That thing must be huge! :D

    You know it. It's a real hand-filler. I'm trying to justify getting a pocket sheath for it and toting it around occasionally....
