    Use a knife, it's also to share a moment with his creator....

    Bravo to the maker! That's a superb piece...

    And Joe, thanks for the re-telling of the Man-eaters of Tsavo story, its one of the classics.

    Col Patterson eventually nailed one or both predators from a hide he built in a tree, using a goat as bait, if memory serves.

    Here is the Wikipedia entry on the event, if anyone is interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-eaters_of_tsavo

    GREAT stuff Joe! You may not be the best speller, but your subject matter makes that irrelevant

    That knife and rig is just AWESOME! Cool history story as well!

    I had the pleasure of checking out Sam's knife at the ABS auction this year at Blade. He does VERY fine work, as does Gustaaf.

    One of my favorite movies is the ghost and the darkness, it's a better telling than the actual book.

    this knife is awesome, I can see Remington carrying it. It'd be perfect on the opposite hip as the howdah.

    OK, I'm a little slow but....
    I just noticed the angles of the lines in the ladder pattern and the lines of the figure in the Koa match each other.
    Keeping the pattern consistent.
    My first thought was just that I liked everything about the knife.
    The more I look at it the more that I can see the planning and thought that went into it.
