    I thought such a beautiful knife needed an equally nice slip to carry it in...

    Several fine folks here on BladeForums have helped me gather these. I guess you could say I’m a fan of Albers Cutlery!

    Wow. Nice collection & picture of the group to compare. I would still have to say the Ebony is the best IMHO.

    The cool thing about Eric's knives is they are built to be used. I carry each of them, but I do carry the Ebony way more often than the rest.

    Awesome. It looks just right. I carry a small fixed blade on the weekends and would definitely purchase one of yours.

    I hope you are enjoying yourself and I’m glad to see Albers Cutlery become real. Your handle choices are wonderful and can’t wait to see what you introduce next. Maybe some camel bone like on the Red Trout knives?

    I am glad @AnW finally helped me understand why I am unable expand my collection of knives by @ea42!

    I should have hung on to the abalone... but it has a good home.

    I’m not sure if you’re just bustin my chops or are serious. I guess it doesn’t really matter.

    I wasn’t going to post that photo because I figured I’d get a comment like that. I did so because I think Eric’s work deserves to be on full display.

    I only bought 4 of these from Eric. The other four came from trading away GECs and Northwoods. Sometimes you gotta give a little to get a little.

    Having said that, if Eric keeps making this knife in covers I find interesting, I’m going to keep trying to buy them.

    There are lots of folks on other knife forums and several social media groups that are also very aware of Albers Cutlery, so I expect they will continue to be in high demand and I’m sure my good luck streak won’t last forever.


    ** edit ** Elgato sent me a nice PM inidicating he was just busting my chops - which is kind of what I thought, but it's so hard to know for sure on a forum such as this. At any rate, just wanted to pass that along, lest anyone think he was out of line.
