    3.Black Ash Burl over black liners & orange pinstripes

    Anyone have an example of this combo? The orange will be the deciding factor for me in the GB tomorrow, so if anyone has a pic of the Black Ash Burl with orange, I’d appreciate it.

    I’m stuck, both camp and Kephart are on my wanted list..... I will probably make my mind up 10seconds before I hit. “Post reply”

    I use the snot out of my Kephart, for what it’s worth. It stays in my little “bushcraft bag” with a firebox stove and fire kit. I’ve batoned with it, shaved feather sticks and fatwood, etc. The blade shape is great, and it’s a good all-purpose knife for around camp.

    I’m still torn on handle options for my knife of choice. Leaning toward black ash, but I do love some nice DIW....ugh! ;)

    This is a tough one for me. I've been wanting a Camp knife for a while and I've been watching for the right one. I'm not sure if I'll like the stainless over the A2. I really like the spalting on the A2. And the Camp knife has a huge blade with lots of spalting. I guess I'll be thinking about it all day to try and make up my mind. That black ash burl is sweet!

    I hear you @NoRest I love spalting, but 3v is a badass steel...

    @Lady1911 if only my knife purchasing was based off logic, half my criteria is based off what I think will be “fun” to play with.

    What a lovely problem to have.

    Choosing handle for the Duke is a quandry- he is all business and a matte stainless, so natural canvas suits his personality. But Osage is a great alternative to NC in a wood. Then there is that awesome burl- but maybe it is like white sox with brown dress shoes??

    Isn't it nice to be saddled with such a tough choice? ;)

    I like the way you perfectly described it as “white socks with brown dress shoes.” :D Maybe so, or maybe it won’t even matter in the big scheme of things. But even though I didn’t have your words to describe it, that’s exactly why I had my doubts. A nice burly burl can make a knife look great, no matter how it’s lined/striped.
