The new #82 prompted me to drag these out for a session with the camera.

I've been looking at the 82 stockman since last year when they came out so I put it on my birthday wish list and my wish came true.

I like those #13s...of course, that's probably because, as Will Rogers famously said, " I never met a [Wharncliffe] I didn't like." (my paraphrase)

And in that same vein...

These were the first Texas Ranger Commemoratives AG Russell produced. Some of the first runs had the wrong starting date on the blade. This was quickly corrected. One of these is the error and the other the corrected blade.

These are a pair of identical Damascus folders that I customized as keepsakes for my Nephew and Daughter.

The handle material on this one for my nephew (a paleontologist) is wooley mammoth ivory with an opal thumb stud:

The handle material on this one for my Daughter is Desert Ironwood with a "Full Moon" Mother-of-Pearl inlay which was a button from my Grandmother:

Sweet shot with the greenery and little puff ball there, and of course all those beautiful picks. Sweet colors etc Rookie.
