    Wow Elliot, that is a very nice collection. You are a lucky man. Thank you for sharing. All are beautiful, but I think number 5 is my favorite.

    Forgive the reopening but I was re-reading and wanted to add this great stockman by Richard Rogers to the collection. It was brought to me on Richard's behalf by Jerry Halfrich from the 2012 Blade Show:



    Richard's work is simply wonderful.

    (The original post has now been updated to include this stockman.)

    Elliott, a great looking stockman! I like the shape of the handle very much!

    Thanks, Andi. That one was based upon a Schrade pattern that I believe Steven had sent to Richard to replicate. (I believe he received the jigged bone version.)
    The knife is as well executed as any knife I own. Just a joy.

    One thing that really stands out to me on some of those knives is how the makers run the swedge almost the entire length of the spine on the secondary blades. Is that something you specifically requested on any of them?

    Nope. I leave that to their sense of aesthetics as well as the requirements of the build insofar as the nesting of the blades.

    Thanks, Jason. I agree...the very first time I saw that jigged bone from Reese in person, I was floored by how beautifully executed it was.

    Yep...I think that Erickson fella's got a future ahead of him if he keeps at it.

    Thank you. I do indeed count myself very fortunate to be able to be the custodian and caretaker of these great knives.

    I'm giving some serious thought to throwing that latest Rogers in my pocket soon. My resolve is slowly eroding insofar as keeping it pristine is concerned. I know Richard would want me to carry it.

    Which one of those Ruple's are you favorite Mr. Elliot?

    I'd be lying if I said I could pick one and stick to it. Each one has distinct features which I like a lot. As far as construction goes, the (split back) sowbelly whittler offers the most complexity both in terms of the build of the knife as well as the file work done by Bill on the liners and spacer.

    Can you accept my reply despite the dodge?

    I wouldn't expect any less from such an avid slip joint lover. Thanks for replying.
