    Now, I'm not a huge fan of the lambsfeets, but I see the draw for you guys. But the hafting on that one is just amazing. The color and fading is real nice! Id actually enjoy that one.

    And the main and sheepsfoot both open right handed. And the 3rd is a pen (or near enouhh to one). Very nice! I like it.

    Thank you. This little sambar stag lambsfoot is one of the best fitted examples I've handled. And being a gift from @Jack Black makes it even more special! :):thumbsup:

    Thanks much, John. I do love jacks, but it looks like we missed the memo that today was stockman day!

    Very nice stockmen, you guys! I like em all.

    Have you done anything to enhance the caramel coloring of the stag? Was it that color new or has it darkened with time? It really is exceptional. Nice Boker too.

    It's pretty close in color to when it was new. It's only about a year old, so the lightest areas have maybe darkened a tiny bit. The pile side isn't as richly colored, but is nice in its own way. I like the way the thickness of the stag matches, even if the color doesn't.

    Picked up this old Case XX last week that was advertised as a 1940-1964 Dogleg Jack. It's got some obvious wear and staining but I love the Gator Snap and Jigged Bone on this old boy.:thumbsup::D

    Oh yeah I like that too. Having two completely different sides is something I really appreciate. Seems to be a Sheffield thing and perhaps a more "old days" feature. Anyway, thanks for the additional pics. Truly one lovely AC. :cool:
