This little gent shot me over the moon. Only had one piece of this beautiful bark, limiting knife size. Charlie and I have discussed slipjoint design over coffee while CEing and CFing my collection. He is a quick study and making some extra fine slipjoints. Note the seamless transition from the bolster to the tang, comfortable in hand with excellent control of the blade. Blade extends into the handle as far as possible to make the blade as long as possible. D2 Pins invisible even under the extreme scrutiny of my macro lens. Flush in all three positions, perfectly centered, solid lockup, fit and finish is as fine as it looks.
