    I figured this is the place to ask this question:

    I’m on a mission to collect one of every Stockman pattern GEC made in Natural Stag, and my whole collection to this point has the UN-X-LD shield inlay. I’ve seen a few 53 Stockmans in Natural Stag, but none with the shield.

    We’re any shielded Natural Stag knives made?

    Colin, the last #5383xx Cuban stockman knives with the muskrat clip main were made in 2011, before GEC came out with the Natural Stag. They just had Genuine, Burnt, and Elk stag back then.

    My only Natural Stag Stockman with a shield is this #811313.

    Gotcha, I’ll aim for the “Genuine”, then. Thanks! I was never sure what the difference was between genuine, natural, and now Sambar Stag.

    So did any of the genuine stags have Northfield shields?

    I’ve got the 82, 81, 68 (somehow) and 66 so far. I think I just need to hunt down a Maverick and a 53... unless I overlooked something along the way.

    Genuine stags were always shieldless. They made a tie tack out of the shield and included it in the tube.

    @black mamba -so there were 3 models with awls? The HJ, Baron, And I assume SFO Cattleman’s? I have a mate with a yellow rose Baron, I’ve seen the HJs, but the Cattle Knife is new too me; very low numbers I’m guessing? Haven’t checked yet, but probably will after this, lol.
    Thanks, Neal

    Here is a nice pair of the #54 HJs in bone and stag.

    Here's a trivia for ya: I believe this is the only Tidioute branded stag knife that GEC ever made besides 2nd or 3rd cuts, a #53 Cuban in Caribou stag. They made ten only.
