    This one has become a faithful companion, and a great worry stone. The more I worry, the better the micarta looks :)

    Than
    Thank you Dean. Honestly I thought it had a kind of a weird fake look for some reason.

    Those Bokers sure are nice looking barlows, just wish they'd drop the shield and do a bolster stamp instead. It looked good on the old ones.;) But if they must use a shield I think it'd look cool lower on the covers to match the radius of the handle.:thumbsup:
