    I'll have to pass on this go around. They all look great but I'm not getting the urge to jump on it at this time, and I need to budget for future knife purchases.
    I will say that the one that sticks out and looks the best to me is that bocote wood. Came out superb.

    I'm waiting to see the Northfield jigged bone and blackwood versions. I think the lined bolsters look nice on this pattern.

    Just paid for my Blackwood, now the nervous wait begins. There looks to be a lot of grain on these Blackwwood handles, my #81 the scales are pure black with no evident grain at all.

Also, I like Case and I'm not bashing them, but they only offer one Swayback model in CV (Chestnut bone), unless I'm wrong, and that model has a pen blade which I don't want.
    Pretty much my thoughts exactly. I love the swayback pattern, but I've always felt that Case's version was a little too small for my liking, and I'm not particularly interested in a Tru-Sharp version. I always thought that I'd like the pattern a lot more if it was a 1/2" or so longer.

    And, I'm a sucker for a large hunk of nice ebony.

    The Northfield bone version looks very nice on their site.

    Just the opposite for me, the Viper turned out bigger than I like so I plan to pick up the Case.

    I'm like you Dave, I prefer multi-blade traditional slipjoints. Good thing for my wallet and I am really looking forward to the #22 Magnum small gunstock.
    The Tidioute Viper in Bocote wood is sure tempting though!

    I, too, was going for the micarta, but was too slow on the trigger and I guess I missed that boat. The lanyard hole turns me off for the other versions, therefore I'll skip this one. Can't say I'm not disappointed, because I've been looking for a GEC swayback for a long time.

    My 4K post is on the horizon and to mark the occasion, I've ordered two GEC #47 Vipers in OD green micarta: one for me and one for a giveaway that I plan to host right here in the Traditional forum. Stay tuned and hold fast, me hearties!

    Guilty of helping that train!

    Some people are going to snag some nice stag. Not a huge fan of the nail nick in the swedge on the Northfields though....

    I had a tough time choosing between the ebony and bocote (two of my all-time favorites). The bocote versions of the #47 look really good.

    I really like all the covers on theese. Wanted the Micarta but was a little too slow. Where are the stag hiding?
