Sorry but I've never learned how to post pictures. It has been explained to me several times by members here but I just can't figure out how to do it.
Thanks for your interest in viewing it, however.

Monk:
Thank you for your thoughtful offer.
Having read that KJ didn't have any mammoth available, I bought a
Tuna Valley Cattleman # 538 from Frank's. Anyone interested in checking it out can view
it on Frank's site.
This retiree is financially tapped out for now.
I hope all is well with you and yours.
Happy Easter.
Best,
Stephen :)

John i like stag too. Nicely hafted, not too thick but just thick enough to feel good in hand.

Got my Stag #97 today and I am very happy. I think the stag is fantastic. To me, it is the best of both worlds, while it has a lot of character, it is also fairly thin.:) The pull is pretty good too. It snaps to half stop, to open , and to closed. For the cherry on top of the sundae, it also came with a button.:D My pictures diffently don't do it justice. Here it is:

Very nice stag knife Larry and it stays slender, no fat 'tummy'. If my inbound stag is close to as fine i too will be happy.
And John your Yellow Rose looks stunning. I want one ! just like yours.
Other than some with a bit weak spring, GEC has done a super job of fitting & finishing these knives.
We should try to send a group "Thank You" to the GEC employees because they really put their heart into making these 'just right'.

My Texas Yellow Rose should be called "lemon pie bone" ! I was very happy 4/22/2019 with 3 GEC#97s in the mail.
