    The two new users: 66 Calf Roper Tidioute ebony and 35 Churchill Tidioute maroon micarta. An “evaluation” (report, really) and comparison soon. I like these knives. Be taking them to church tomorrow so I will have some things to admire and fondle while the pastor drones on again.

    Made by Timothy LaCombre. The handles are from the South African Monkey Apple Tree. And that is not a joke, it is a real tree. The wood is very similar to ebony. This knife snaps like an African Crocodile.

    That's a Benchmade Proper I've just about finished. I think next up for the Proper will be jigged bone. It's fun to take the Proper and give it a more traditional feel.

    - and very nicely done @Rose and Thistle Custom :thumbsup::cool:

    Have never been much of a BM fan, particularly after they swallowed and chewed Lone Wolf........but just looked the Proper up, and here in UK it is a good solid legal user :)

    Stunner for Sunday you mean:cool:

    What are the scales? Warthog? Mammoth? Looks like the knife itself was carved from them:thumbsup:

    And the background? At first I thought it was a sun-dial, but not with elephants, tigers and?

    I’m going to start appreciating my #25’s for the next few weeks. They have been neglected lately for newer knives. Notice the lack of a nail nick or long pull on this 2009.

    Hello Will, magic of the Photography :D
    The scales of the knife are in dyed camel bone and the back ground is a simple sheet stool bought years ago in Lebanon.

    Best regards

    I think the secret of their accuracy is the 1.5" tip-up unrifled barrel.
    Thanks- my nicest lambsfoot, with ebony so fine-grained and well-fitted it feels like glass.
