    I did, in voting on the pin color/material. I voted brass, having second thoughts.

    Next year many club/forum knives will be a GEC Trapper. I like a brass bolster/s , brass pins , and a liner lock. I love the 2019 Blade Forums knife just like it is , yall did a great job.

    Brass pins with black wood always looks great. Completely independent of bolster color. ;)

    It is fine either way, but if I had to choose my preference would be nickel pins all around if the handle is black. If the handle is brown bone, or wood, I think brass looks fitting.

    Yes, agree. Plus, black won't show the fantastic depredations of verdigris (brass bleed) like light colours do. This includes Muslin Micarta which greens too :thumbsdown: Generally, I prefer knives to have minimal brass content, NS, stainless or all steel liners are preferable. Pins are OK, but wait for the greening....:(

    No problem for me with brass pins and dark wood, I think it looks quite classy and I have 100 year old knives that the pins have not turned green.

    I think some people have it mixed up Mark. They don't suffer so much from green pins but rather the "green with envy" syndrome when confronted by a knife such as @Augie - Augie's knife.:)

    No clue yet. But I’m sure more than one of us are watching informed post waiting to see those labels created.

    Dang, just checked my order. Somehow (I screwed up), I opted out of the back labels.

    Hopefully we are next in line after the tortoise. But I'm guessing the stag will be next then us. Shipping often takes a couple weeks up to Canada, but I'm still optimistic that I'll get it before Christmas. At least they are making steady progress:

    I'm wondering the same thing, I checked on CK and in my confirmation and it doesn't say anything about the label. I'm 99.9% sure that I opted in for one. So maybe it only says something if you did not order one.
