    Hopefully, Nathan has saved some of his own material because it'll be such a huge loss of transferable knowledge if that past content is irretrievable from the old BFC :(

    Hell, I'm not even sure he has originals or copies of his own many patents, LOL. I would imagine he would consider saving papers of old designs/processes as superfluous, rather having retained them in his head.

    Mat, I seldom edit anything except for spelling or grammar. I can tell by your comment, and the speed with which you follow the thread, that you - probably the only one that fast - read the first metaphor, which I edited out for a more appropriate comment, but also saw the replacement edit.

    Indeed Bob. As you know, I'm semi-retired (no word gymnastics please :D ) and I work in front of a computer so I wait for new posts with bated breath. Edit noted :)

    They do look almost alike, obviously from the same hunk of cocobolo, but one is just a bit more figured than the other.

    I am going to try to contribute one post a day to see what interest others might have, given that it was suggested. Some of them I do not have good closeup images of, so it will help me achieve that goal, at least.

    And remember what Nathan always said about owning a Shiv: "Oh it at least doubles your sex appeal. It tripled mine."

    Hey, everybody, roll out those Shivs and UFs you have, let's see them!

    I believe there are just 2 UF in existence, and those 2 have "custody" for a month at a time.

    I could see him make a small run and have a couple sales, but my gut tells me that a pre-order would never be something he would do on the Shiv, but what do I know. Hey, looking forward to seeing that new set of scales, which as I recall are the same as the ones on Mat and mine, but without the milling?

    They sure don't pop up often. One sees very few around. I have a second one but it is currently being held captive :);):mad::D and I've forgotten what it l:Doks like.

    Here's a double-edged, green 3V G10 Shiv that leads off part of a set of CPKs, with double step textured scales:

    A very nice set Bob. Although my own personal proclivities and color preferences are toward the darker colors, I must admit that those CPKs look great as you have presented them. BTW, congrats on the very nice snag of your Shiv # 1,436,852 from yesterday's :D
