    Beautiful. I like both the variations, and the similarities.

    Not that your green case isn't also fine. I have the chestnut/CV edition, and greatly appreciate its smooth, quality "heft."

    How did I get two so close alike? Funny you should ask...

    Last year I was deployed to the sandbox. I had more disposable income at that time, so I bought knives. Some got delivered to me there, most did not. I like the swayback; I have several. I really was looking for a custom one, but I kept missing out on TA Davison's sales due to the time difference. Ken Coats obviously posted his sales at better times. Still, I didn't set out to get two. In fact I didn't realize I had done so until just recently when I was trying to consolidate and inventory my collection (due to having my display case finished).

    Of the two I prefer the "arrowhead" mainly due to the relief for the blade notch. Still, the slanted jigging on the other one is almost as interesting.

    Ha! Hopefully, it was a good surprise? Sure looks like it from here.

    I hadn't noticed the relief notch on the one until you mentioned it. Very nice detail! They do complement one another nicely. I'm really enjoying just the picture-- to have them in-hand must make for a good time. :-)

    These SBJ thread have been tormenting me for a couple a years now. I finally pulled the trigger on Case Chestnut Bone CV SBJ about 10 minutes ago. So the wait begins.....

    Very unusual shield on that old Ebony, nice used blade too. If only you could get modern knives with such thick rounded handles.

    I admire the stag on the Amherst that Charles shows in post 70 as well.

    Regards, Will.

    The swayback is a good example of Tony brining a vintage pattern back from the grave.

    Thanks Will. The handle is magnificent and the shield sold me right away.
