    Understandable. But the reverse orleans looks weird to me. I voted "no shield", but the bomb looks the least bad of our options so that's my vote.

    A couple of days left.... Is it too late to get a groundswell of support for a custom shield that's shaped like the forum knife (which would also be imprinted with a shield shaped like the forum knife)?

    (I'm only about 50% joking.)

    Out of the options made available, I believe either the banner or the propeller would look best on what is more than likely going to be a bareheaded blackwood knife.

    You are somewhat correct @Travman . They did make 12 of them . Remember these Emerald Green Parts Knives ??? I thought that you bought one too at the 2018 Rendezvous ????

    Harry, I do have one Emerald Green 35’s. However, I am not sure about your point. The shield on these is the regular Orleans, not the reverse. Either way it looks great. I’d like to see that emerald green bone used on a forum knife.

    I also would like to see that EmeraldGreen on a Forums Knife . I guess I don't understand what a Reverse Orleans is . Just put the shield on the other way around with the narrow end towards the main blade pivot ?????? Is that it ???

    That's it - that way it matches the taper of the handle.

    Still time for lots of the other voters to have a "come to Orleans" moment...

    Banner shield

    It's not too late for a comeback. Would look great on blackwood or ironwood (I can't find an ironwood mockup)

    Looks like bomb has it wrapped up, and I'm okay with that. I just like the banner more.

    Weirdly (and I guess luckily) I am starting to come around on the bomb over Orleans on ironwood. But on AB I think Orleans is still "the bomb."

    Yep, that's the knife I stole the idea from. I poked around a bit before I posted, but couldn't remember where I'd seen it before.

    Bomb shield for me. I think it's a better fit for this knife.
