    Found a couple of Betzner's pics...nothing much else, but my search-fu is not strong like bull :oops:...

    I'll look at buffed or unbuffed, any model, any color, any cut/bias, etc.-- I'm not picky...but I'd REALLY like seeing some on a Lite Choppa :thumbsup:...TIA!

    And just to add as much perspective on the antique micartas as possible, the ones below are all Westinghouse micartas from the same drop, just in different stages of "oxygenation". I have, as requested, also added the fourth piece in the set, requested in the opener, an LC in Westinghouse:

    The edge-cut is beautiful! Glad I pulled the trigger on it for the NASK!

    When I marvel at the shiv design, it always makes me think of the edgecut antique micarta - because they are in the same league visually - simply stunning. I agree, TG.

    Thank you Gents for posting these exquisite photos. I'm now eve more eager than any time prior, toward receiving my very first EAM handle scales adorning one of my pre-order NASK units.

    Thanks, man. I really lucked out on snagging that RLC. Usually I'm not the quickest on the friday sales but somehow ended up being the first to respond.

    I really like the variation in color between the three and am curious where the yet-to-be-named survival knife that isn't a survival knife in antique will fit on the spectrum. :D

    Yeeesh.. my pupils just dilated wide enough to bend spacetime. I think I drooled on myself, but I was blacked out, so I can't be sure.
