    The stag on the Chamblin glows and the Ohta LC is very special Gary. A trio of treasures.

    Thanks, Alan. That Ohta is like a LC micro, measuring 2 3/4". Hiroaki calls it his "Small Camper" model.
    The Chamblin is just perfect in every way. It's got very light pulls though. I figure it'll be my go to knife when I start having trouble opening knives someday.

    The Texas Jack is one of my all time favorite patterns. That Bose TX Jack is as good as it gets! Superb collection sir!

    Here's another one from Joel Chamblin. 3 1/8" Wharncliff Trapper with ATS-34 blades. I carried this one everyday for a few years. It's got some dings and scratches but it's still a beautiful knife.

    Very nice Gary. I've never found a few dings and scratches to hurt things any. There have got to be serious dents, chips, pits, and the like to detract from a well made knife's beauty.

    The
    The Halfrich is indeed beautiful. By the way, is the ceramic bird a Jorge Wilmot piece?

    Thanks! My mom picked that up in Santa Fe, New Mexico years ago. Looks like it was made by an R. Boren. One of my treasures.

    Well, it's very nice. Wilmot was a cousin of mine (deceased now) that worked in Mexico, and that piece reminded me of his work.

    My small, but rapidly growing, collection of traditional customs.

    The fixed in this pic is a Larry Rosi. The other three from top to bottom are a John Lloyd stag “Moonshiner”, a John Lloyd amber stag Zulu, and a John Lloyd amber stag dogleg.

    [​IMG]

    Then there is my latest, a python canvas micarta Zulu from Andy Fannin. I love it so much I am already on his books for 2 more.

    [​IMG]

    I am missing one here, a John Lloyd Zulu in barbed wire micarta. I Currently have some on the books from Jim Dunlap, Chris Taylor, Jeffery Mitchell, Andy Fannin, and Larry Rosi.
