    Congrats, Dylan!
    Nice scores (disregard my question to you in the "totin'" thread. I figured out where you got it).
    Out of the 8 Serranos, you and I have the only 2 with a lanyard hole :thumbsup:

    Thanks Todd! Being Drew Estate, I bet those are good! Might pick up some of those too.

    Thank you, my friend. I've been thinking about making up a braided leather thingy with a cool bead or something for mine. If I had ordered it myself, I might have refrained from having the hole but it is perfectly executed, I might as well dandy it up.

    I am a big fan of the Drew Estate Undercrowns - I have a few big'uns in my humidor. I didn't know they also had cigarillos, definitely will need to pick some of those up.

    Whenever we get the chance to hang out again, we'll have a pile of Redmeadows between us. Great stuff!

    Kept this guy close again today.

    Congratulations Dylan, two great workers right there!:thumbsup:
    The only problem with your Serrano is it isn't one of the super rare, HIGHLY valued, limited edition with the denim micarta!:D:thumbsup:

    That Bocote really does make a sweetheart of a knife...

    That said, based on what I read in the build thread, that paperstone version I acquired is rather rare in its own right :cool:.

    That's the only Serrano in paperstone.
    Here's one of my favorites in paperstone with Blackwood and moon glow.

    That is just an exquisite knife, John. That close-up of the paperstone almost looks like thinly stacked leather.

    Thanks Dylan, I really like the "grain" that paperstone has. I think it makes for a great spacer material and really pops with blackwood.

    Pulled a couple of pictures off of IG.

    This was the result when the buyer said, "Make whatever you want to make".

    Well, this beauty arrived today - what a knife! Thank you again, Ray, for making this available to me.

    The Smokestack Bullnose... It's a hell of a knife. It's a robust blade, with "fine" written all over it. Curves for days, the grinds are exquisite, and the coloring of the handle is dark and handsome (getting all hot over here).

    The sheath is excellent. The dangler wouldn't be my first choice but there is no denying its utility. The laminated leather is a really nice touch.

    Thanks again, Ray, and props again to John, you make a hell of a blade. (Again, this one won't be my last).

    Man oh man I hated to let that one go but after 2 years I realized it was never getting the proper use I intended. :( My life style has changed more than I have cared to admit. :confused: It had been relegated to kitchen work - a sad & unsuitable fate for such a knife. The Smokestack was/is exceptional in so many respects. As I told John at the time - it was the most beautiful of all my toys/tools. I have a violin which is right up there, as far as intrinsic beauty but the Smokestack holds its own. I could see Dylan starting a Redmeadow collection and then that the Serrano needed a big brother - seemed like the @Pàdruig house would be the perfect new home. Looks great on your handrail Dylan - with its new tribe. :)

    Now please may I have an Redmeadow SD so that I can keep my cowbell :thumbsup:

    Not a great picture, but a great knife. Finding more and more uses for this guy everyday!

    That bullnose is such a splendid form and then you add all of John's meticulous detail and craftsmanship and I agree Mack, it is a true and unique standout. If I had a mantel I would never had let it go no matter that it was languishing as a user, but in a drawer or on my shelf - just was making me sad. :(
