    Thank you Mikael, I appreciate your kind words. Especially since when selecting that particular 14 I was strongly influenced by it's closely matching sides. :)

    It looks so much happier and quite lovely in your care, Alan. You are a good friend to take such care, and to share in posts.

    I remember owning one of these back in the day. I don't think I ever used it though.

    I might have used this one when I first got it. With so many others to choose from I don't use it now.
    It's so nice too look at I hate to mess it up.:D

    Really nice stag and cut properly, unlike so many US-made stag handles. Do you have any idea when it was made? I don't have my Goins handy so I can't look up GG Solingen. What is on the tang of the master blade?

    It's a Gerbruder Grafrath Solingen, 1878 - present per Goins, though the firm went out of business in 1961 and may have been revived under Kuno Ritter of Solingen (see also Hubertus), Thanks for the nice comment. I, too, like the use of the stag.

    Great Stag today! :thumbsup:

    The Stag Crown showed last week is now epoxied and in the final stages of shaping & polishing.
    Here with the rest of my collection of small Sambar Stag Crowns.

    Crowns can be either very easy to work with or extremely challenging, to turn into a good handle due to the natural shapes of Stag.

    Here an older pic of the Crowns, showing the curves that has to be negotiated with.

    To me Crowns are a fascinating aspect of the knifehobby.
