Live and Let Die

That has aged really nicely Dylan, thanks for the pics Do you carry it in a slip, or just in your pocket? You've inspired me to carry my own today While my Hartshead Barlow has monopolised my pocket over the past couple of years, I've carried my AC a lot in the past, but I always use a pocket slip, and I'm not sure the stag has changed much. Here's a pic of when I first got it, compared to a pic on my kitchen counter today. The lighting is very different unfortunately, but the stag doesn't seem to have aged much. I do love it though Maybe I need to take up cigar-smoking again!
Edit - Just adding a pile-side pic
Here's another couple of pics, the first from 2018, and the second from a couple of months ago. Both are taken in, more or less, the same spot at Saint Mary's Abbey in York
Good morning Guardians, got a busy week on here, so I better get into doing some work Hope everyone's week got off to a good start, and that you have a great day
That's a good point, Jack, I suspect that very well might be the mitigating factor. When I first received my AC, I carried it in a slip but I soon omitted the slip when the AC became such a regular part of my daily carry. I'm actually surprised at how "white" the Stag was on the mark side, it has yellowed considerably since then - likely from handling and slip-free carrying.
It is always nice to see your AC, the Stag is exquisite.
And the winner is......
Thanks for taking part everyone, and thanks for all your posts I'm sure Ron would have enjoyed this
Wow, thank you, Jack! I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment, this will be a pretty special knife to me. I don't take part in too many giveaways but this was a special one, honoring a man we all miss, and this knife represents that.
