    Here's a 4" Utility with ironwood handles and a 2 1/2" with green/black G10. Don't know why the G10 looked two-tone, so I hit it with WD-40 and that fixed it right up. WD-40 really makes G10 look great!

    Tapered the tang to reduce weight - could even go more on these.

    The smaller one's going to Polecat at WR. The wife suggested putting my logo sideways and it worked pretty well.

    You like? I've got another 4" Utility about ready for B540Glenn at WR. I added a guard, some filework and the ironwood is awesome. It looks 3D! :D

    Bear, don't believe A...it's a long running joke about now that Tye started. I may strangle both of them yet.

    Last time I looked my hair (what hasn't started to turn silver) was still auburn/brunette. And I'm still somewhere between 5'5" and 5'6" (I did not take after my cousins who are closer to 6').

    Nobody's perfect I guess.

    And the only one in the family who did not have peaches and cream complexion. I had to be the throw back and have olive skin. Sigh.

    AV helped, even without it, I would have figured out who you were. Is the new screen name a hobby or vocation.
