    Thank you sir, pile sides for your enjoyment. Single clip is all I need and 15s are perfect size. My black micarta is the snappiest of these three and my favorite, could see me carrying it.

    That's a good looking knife there, Paul! :thumbsup:

    I haven't picked up any of the bail and chain #15's, because I'm afraid I would find the chain more annoying than useful, and the prices compared to the non-bail-and-chain knives seem a bit high, but I have been tempted by Charlie's SFO (the bar shield and clip point blade are fantastic!) and that Maher & Grosh. I tried a few times to get ahold of one of Charlie's knives but struck out every time. Still tempted by that M&G, though.

    Thanks Barrett, I understand your concern about the chain. I used my ebony version while under my truck and it caught on EVERYTHING:eek: I removed to finish my project with less frustration and installed the chain after I finished up. I'm on the hunt for Charlie's with a strong possibility of picking one up:thumbsup: The M&G is very nice. The blade etch will diminish in time but the tang stamps are pretty:cool::)

    My favorite #15s are clip points with standard crescent nail nicks. You just can't beat them.

    if Charlie's came out with no bail and chain, it might be the belle of the ball for this release. clip blade, elegant shield what more can a 15 collector ask for?! :thumbsup::eek:

    @paulhilborn is there pics of the 78 easy open mod? I love my 78 but the pull can be so strong I don’t carry as often as I like, maybe adding an EO would help.

    Thanks

    I agree with @mrknife , Charlie’s SFO Boy’s Knife is gorgeous. To me it is one of the best looking knives to come out in a while period. But I just do not like the chain. Rather than just not getting one, does anyone have any thoughts on how to modify the knife to hide the holes? I have thought about just taking the chain off of mine and leaving the bail in place. That would be not be much different than the Beer Scout or the Navy Knife. Any thoughts? Maybe I should reach out to our very own modification expert, @glennbad. Do you have any ideas on how to hide the holes in one of Charlie’s Boys’s Knives Glen? The dark color and jigging should make it easy to disguise.
