    Don't recall seeing many if any threads here about Scott Cook and/or Michael Raymond knives.

    I really like 'em. Light weight, solid as a bank vault, and attractive.

    I got a "plain Jane" Estrella off Michael's table at Blade about five years ago, but I wanted something fancier. This Starlit model fit the bill nicely.


    Bohler M390 steel blade, one piece jigged titanium handle, jigged clip, blacklip pearl pivot pin, Timascus pivot pin collar and thumb lug.

    The Estrella was/is a terrific knive. But IMO, the Starlit is signifcantly more refined and elegant than the Estrella (and lighter in weight).

    Now I've shown you mine . . . why don't you show us yours?

    I've got an Estrella with a gold thumber on it from the very first run Michael did, wrapped it back up in the tissue with all of the goodies that came with it, only opened it once, and put it so many others.....damn it! ;)

    Wow - that's a special one. I'm not sure if he does the gold thumb lug anymore. It's not listed as an option on his price sheet. So I got the Timascus lug - which might have cost about as much as gold. :eek:

    You need to take that thing out and take a picture so the rest of us can enjoy it. :p

    My two Lochsa (S90v), one I requested the old 4 star style pivot, and Prototype 1 Starlit (M390) with double thumb stud and 7 star pivot -- Enjoy !

    Note: I like the plain Jane ones. :)

    Pat Crawford has made a one piece handle folder, with his integral "Crawford" lock, for at least 20 years.
