I agree with mqqn in that I, personally, would probably stick with the Buck 110. On the other hand, I also understand your need for scale sizes smaller than that of a Buck 110 at times. I am sure there are plenty of Hen & Rooster fans out there. Trying these knives could potentially start a whole new market for you because as you are well aware, collectors are often brand specfic - at least until they actually become Michael Hoover/Art in Stone/Redrummd fans! The Hen & Rooster handle is very similar to the Buck 110, but although I really like damascus, I really don't care for the blade or nail notch shapes. Regardless, I would still buy one if I loved the stone! Try a few and see how they do???
