    I don't care for scrimshaw, but that M43 is a beauty. With the fullers it almost looks like a hybrid between the M43 and the GS.

    people keep saying that, but his method seems to work.

    it also seems like he can't be emailed directly, or IM'ed - weird that.

    That's a great lookin' Rose. I love mine. She's big and broad and beautiful. Not to mention tough as nails and sharp as the devil's tongue. However, with her sweeping lines and curves she comes across as a razor-toothed vixen with a seductive pout. The Cherokee Rose is a true fighter that can work with the best of them. A must for any TRUE HI collector;):thumbup:

    Oh Dayum!!!! After seeing that Cherokee Rose carved like that I got to thinking, "What if the carver put an Eagle at the top and then a Grizz or a large wolf below it in sort of a totem type effect?"
    Man that would be something else!!!!:thumbup: :cool: :D

    That is if the carver did the Eagle just right and not make it so that it looked like a canary or such.:rolleyes: :barf:
    If y'all haven't seen the carver's rendition of a Nepali Owl then you haven't got your laugh of the year award yet.
    I guarantee you it is hilarious!!!! :rolleyes: :eek: :(

    No, you need to go back and search Munk's review of the blade. It's a classic:thumbup:

    Next time I see a Cherokee Rose with a dark uncarved handle, I'm gonna bite it.

    WOW great blades yet once again. Mine just came in yesterday and once I have the time I'll take a group pic for you guys in their new home. I am a HI customer for life, no other can come close. Can't wait to do some chopping!!!

    Good thing I wasn't here to see the Bowie, phew that was a close one.

    Email sent on the Cherokee Rose. What a great knife. This knife has finally become the favorite of all my blades. Chop, thrust, slash, whatever you want to do this knife does it all.

    I got a Rose very much like that in December, that was the first one with that style of carving. It really is a work of art. I have to say though that the carving on this one is a bit more unique with wonderful detail, but I'm not complaining. (-:

    I had a nice satisal one with some tweaks to the handle that Yvsa himself hand sharpened for me at the SWKK, and I'll never part with that one, but this carved handle one was sweet. The carving actually feels great in the hand IMO.

    Mine was this price without the stand, so that is a great deal for a lot of knife. The one I snagged was 20" even and 25 oz. from the 12/9 deals:

    A Bura M43 is on my "someday" list. I have 3 by Kumar and 1 older one by Amtrak, but there's just something extra about Bura's work on this model. The handles are longer and the whole knife is curved more. Really nice snag for some lucky guy.
