    Nor is there a good reason for it to remain so. Use and enjoy, and thanks for showing pics! What a great knife!

    It all makes sense now doesn’t it. Congrats on such a fine knife. Carry and use it, you’ll love it even more

    I have found nothing about it I can nitpick, only admire. The action rivals that of Jess Horn. I have one more 1306 with stag on order for sometime this summer then I'm done for awhile....I'm not an addict...I can stop anytime I want. Lol. Did you see that Pena 1306 that got scooped up here in the exchange yesterday?

    Very nice :thumbsup::eek: I've been trying to decide which pattern will be next, my first is a Lannys clip slip joint which will arrive next week. Pics coming once in it's in hand. After that I'm arguing with myself over the R1306 like this one or a large JH tribute hammer lock :confused:, in stag of course as is my Lannys.

    Thank you, can't wait to see the lanny's. When you say hammer lock do you mean the gunstock with the tail lock? Those look amazing. Can't go wrong with a 1306 though. I'm considering ordering one of his 1306 in the 4" size. The 3/4 size is a tad small for me.

    I'm a fan of 4+" knives and several of his patterns meet or exceed that.
    I hope he doesn't mind me using cropped pictures. He offers a large Jess Horn Tribute with a hammer lock. The example I like is under the 2017 knives tab on his website. The gunstock with tail lock doesn't qualify for my 2nd pick.

    I haven't looked at his new knife tab but here's the pictures he sent. His photography skills are not aligned with his knife making skills:D but that's good judging by in hand pictures previously posted so I'm having trouble sleeping lately ;)

    Beautiful.

    Expect your knife to not be as dark or as amber when it arrives as his pictures show. It looks like he uses a very warm low K light to provide light for his photos.
