    Thanks, Jason. This one is either 3 1/2 or 3 5/8. The stag is rounded and tapers from the butt to bolster providing a great comfortable grip.

    Glad to see the great responses here! I have my share of production blades and I love them too. But something about a nice custom in the pocket and in the hand just makes things that much better!

    John, I don't think I've seen the Erickson lock back recently, it's a beauty. The Bose collection isn't exactly shabby either :D

    Thanks Jerry. Need to do another group pic of the Boses with a couple recent additions. This creamy little swayback is very happy here :)

    Doesn't suck either.

    Alan, I thank you . . . and Doug thanks you! :)

    Traum, that looks like a phenomenal slicer. I've got one of Stu's little guys as well. 5.85" OAL, redheart wood and 52100 @ 62. The blade is 0.04" at the spine, right in front of the handle. Very delicate! Here it is next to a Queen #40 gunstock.

    Wonderful display sir!

    Those look about perfect! Real beauties!

    If you don't mind me inquiring,
    How long are they? I assume they're 154 cm?
    Pardon me for asking, I'm not familiar with customs but what significance does the "Wilfred Works" stamp on the bolster have?

    @Peregrin I had a similar Erickson swayback about ten years ago, mine was too tough for me to open. It was a great knife though :thumbsup:

    This one is around 10 years old also. It's 3 1/8" with Antique Ivory Micarta and an ATS-34 blade and spring. The spring is pretty stiff, maybe an 8. I don't mind it too much, but prefer a lighter spring for edc. Other then that personal preference thing, the knife is just perfect.
    I did get it on the secondary market, maybe it was yours?

    Mine was black linen micarta and I think it was a 3 1/2" version.

    52100 and Carribou bone by local maker Ken Marsden, haven’t skint anything with it yet but it’s a workhorse for sure.
