    I have had this in my carry rotation since getting it new in 2014. It's been over 5 years now and it looks better than ever with a nice patina and nicely mellowed stag.

    Can you show your's?

    Still the best bladeforums knife in my opinion. Once upon a time I chased these endlessly and missed them by minutes. Eventually I ended up with three of them with one as a user which was gifted to @BigBiscuit. The other eventually left when I downsized with only the mint one remaining. So its still mint. :):D

    Thanks for the reminder. Mine is still in the box earning interest.

    Carry/light use was more frequent in the first couple of years. Still gets pocket time, probably once per month on average. One of my all-time favorites.

    I have had several of the BF Stag Jacks but never managed to hang onto them. I have this now which isn't exactly the same thing but it's stag, it's a keeper and I think of it as my bladeforum's knife :D

    Safe-queen, closest to the penny - my guess. These are splendid little folders. :thumbsup:

    Oh sure, salt my wounds. This is the knife that brought me here. I started to see pics of them showing up on other forums after they started to land. I was in love with every pic I saw. But as we all know the process, once they land, it's too late.

    But love seeing all the new shots with age.

    boy-knife again!!:D

    who carries the runner up? How's everyone's Eric's Jack holding up? Stag certainly does wear nicely over time.

    Keep them coming. These had some if the nicest stag I've seen in a while (Thanks again to John Lloyd ) Very solid, lots of character and they sure have aged nicely.
