    I had this and then sold and then just received it back this week, a welcome
    reunion! Blade is very nice, fairly thin edged with a center core of ZDP-189
    Scales are Titanium with a solid working button lock. Blade opens with the
    smoothest action of any knife I've owned.

    This was a partnership between a tracker named Tom Brown and the William Henry company,
    to come up with a handy size folder to be a companion to
    his larger fixed blade knife. For some reason, they are no longer associated
    and William Henry notes the knife style as Quest B-15 model but no mention
    of the Tom Brown connection...

    Here's an article written by Dexter, PDF file;

    Tom Brown Quest

    Blade length: 3.25"
    Overall length: 7.375"

    Here are some images of this knife, no clip on this, made a handy sheath to
    tote it about, works nice;

    Yep, I sold it a few months ago when I was gathering up funds for a new lens,
    got some funds back up, contacted the fellow and asked to be first in line if
    he ever decides to sell it, luckily he was ready right then and sold it back :)

    I have one of those, and like it very much. I also like the sheath.
    Did you make that?

    Yes, one of the things I do to help in buying the toys, making sheaths.

    Great knife and sheath Gary. Wish I hadn't skipped getting the Quest when I had the chance. I have the Monarch and it's a great knife really sharp and great for detail work on leather and paracord.

    Had the Monarch for a short time, nice size knife too, but I like the overall
    feel of this an the blade shape, just works well, it was very hard to sell it
    the last time, but, it was the only knife on hand that was of any value to
    sell, had to get that lens ;)

    G2, A little off-topic but...

    What's up with the jimping on the small Sebbie? Looks a bit different than mine. We're the three big "jimps" added later?

    Great looking knife and sheath Gary. :thumbup: I had my eye on a Quest too, but never pulled the trigger. WHK does make one hell of a knife. I have a few myself.

    Fishtale, not sure, it was in house for a sheath, wasn't my own but it seemed
    do work pretty nice though.

    Thankw Peregrin, my favourite WHK use to be the Lancet, still a great knife
    but the Quest just has an overall handier size and blade shape for me, the
    point is fairly low for lots of uses.

    Gary,
    Your pictures of the Tom Brown are driving me crazy! I'm still looking for one.

    Seriously, your pictures are amazing!
