Timing is a funny thing... a month ago I had none... and now I have three (the first two posted above)...
the third... a NYKC 2¼" fiery MoP handles with nickel silver bolsters... with my recently acquired Keen Kutter folding rule...

Outstanding antler Q, fabulous looking piece. Wall St. ain't bad either. Nice score.

I stumbled on to a Rough Ryder (new spelling) with a Wharncliffe blade. I am hooked on the Wharncliffe blades so when my credit card flips over the billing cycle next week, I'm going to order one. I guess I could order it now but this will be an exercise in patience (which I sorely need).

Heard a rumor that a few of them have had quality issues which is unusual for a RR these days. At that price, I'll just take my chances.

Thinking RRs and other China made knives may be seeing a 25% price increase soon, what with the tarriffs.

What's the closed length on that one, Scott? I'm not much on small knives but I can see myself falling for that little cutie.

Just got the Lionsteel, yesterday, in time for National Knife Day. Got is primarily because of the Wharncliff. Cardboard killing machine...

I didn't remember the exact length but I did remember passing on it because of it's length.

Wow, jerryd, you have a well-trained Monkey if you can make him wait an entire week on a $13 knife; that's some serious military-style discipline. I am duly impressed. ::nod::

It's a good looking knife, great pattern. I'll be interested to hear your analysis of it once you have it in hand. Hopefully the rumors about the quality issues will prove to be unfounded.
