    I've tried searching the forum and the Internet in general and come up empty. Why do they call this Dog Bone?

    It's made from dogs.

    Just kidding. I thought it was because they wanted it to have a more unfinished look by leaving the natural texture but it seems they've polished it all up.

    While not a big purple fan for my knives, I am anxiously awaiting pics of the forthcoming user dye jobs on this run. :p

    That makes sense. It sure doesn't look like a dog bone all polished and violet. They should have put some teeth marks in it and aged it under a sofa for a few months.

    Maybe they buried it in the backyard for a few months?

    IFRC they had an early cover material that was basically a source of disinterred bone that had been found on the site of a slaughter house - or something. I can't remember if that was the primitive bone or named something else... Someone help me out here ...

    They should've left it buried. :D

    I'm joking, of course, but I don't believe I'll be picking one of these up. :rolleyes:

    My 5 year old granddaughter is an up and coming knife knut, and her middle name is Violet, so I think the one I have on reserve will become her Christmas present this year. May just be perfect for that purpose.
    Take care,

    Thanks for posting the picture of the new clip point. I've been anxious to see them. These are going to look stellar in the medium barlow! Lots of belly, nice swedge, matchstrike pull... all good things.

    TIL. I always wondered if they were actual horse bone. Having worked with draft horses (best co-workers ever) I think I'd like to get my hands on one of those.

    Here you go, Paul. Sounds like you might indeed be thinking of Primitive Bone.
