    Another good one. I like Case's 83 balloon whittler pattern. Has he ever made one of those?

    Speaking of pimps, here's a Reese Bose 4 inch BP in 440V and polished stag I owned before and after a pimp job by Joe Mason. Wouldn't this look good next to the pearl 5 blade?

    And some other Reese knives I own or wish I still owned:

    Sow belly trapper #8. Have a G2 sheath for it laying around somewhere


    Whaler #0. Featured in a recent article in a Japanese knife magazine. I really miss this one. Great stag and shield.


    Reeses first Ivory WT. Went to Tony, then another collector, then to me under the condition that I never sell it on the open market. Who would?


    Owned both of these at one point. Orange fibermascus and red Boker bone. JTs dad is carrying the bone knife.


    Serpentine trapper #1 in old burgundy micarta. Have the matching #1 3.25 single blade trapper around here somewhere.

    I recently watched a documentary about Fort Knox and it wasn't as impressive as the lineup of knives on this thread.

    I'll have to see what I can add to all the purdies here

    Mike, you are reading my mind.

    Next time my name comes up on the order list I hope Reese or Tony want to try one.

    That sunfish looked pretty darn nice too.

    Well whaddaya know? That engraved, polished, BP would certainly look good next to the 5-blade pearl.....and I just bought the knife, if I am not mistaken. I guess we'll just have to see how the two get along.

    Thanks, fasteddie.

    Gus, all I did is bug people and write checks. Tony and Reese are the heros here. Some of the finest knives ever made. period. Not just complex and perfectly made, but also knives that are designed and built for everyday use.

    More great pics! Thanks Fasteddie and 92degrees. I would love to be able to handle some of those knives, let alone own them. I found a few of these knives in the BF for sale archives and now I really wish I had started buying them sooner.

    Gus, if you do get an 83 made let’s see it! I’m at the tail end of Reese’s list so it will be a while for me. (Don't you have a pearl cokebottle to post here?)

    Maybe some Bose knives will break loose from Blade, but right now there’s nothing out there.

    Here’s a Reese back pocket proto. Not mine but some of you know who the owner is.

    Gus, send them to me and I'll take some photos for you. When I'm done, I'll send you the camera.

    F.E. brings up a great point.
    These pics are great. Getting to hold, manipulate or use one of them is greater by a long shot.
