    Maybe next summer you can come up and visit - go for your first sail and we'll sing Southern Cross a-cappella & loud! :) We won't try floating knives though.

    It is a stellar blade of my little collection.

    That is the finest peachseed GEC has ever done in my opinion. Sad that the 38 whittler won't be made again.

    Ebony. Because, it's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.


    I'm in!

    I personally love any knife that's executed well. My current favorite has a folded steel handle, but wood definitely calls to me. I'd like to be in for my friend @Jack Black... If that's ok. That is a beauty, excellent GAW sir!

Richard and Eric brought together an incredible vision with the Red Trout Knives. I love them all, bone, wood, micarta, mammoth ivory. But my favorite is ebony or African Blackwood. Beautiful material, classes up any knife while being totally functional for a working knife.

    I am in, than you !
    Wood is my favourite handle material and if I could only have one knife it would be ebony.

    My favorite is kind of an odd ball material. I love this stabilized corn husk in an acrylic like material. Eric and Mr. Redtrout built this knife for me and it came out amazing. The second picture is the picture Eric sent me when it was completed, and Richard would always tell me that this picture was his desktop picture. The Redtrout boys knife in corn husk raffir is by far my favorite knife. 20200727_232402.jpg Corey's knives_compress13.jpg

    I'm not eligible due to low post count (I read more than chat), but I just wanted to say this is
    a very nice thing for you to do! :)

    (And my favorite scale material is vintage Case red bone...)

    My favorite scales would have to be Cocobolo, although I love Bloodwood also. I'll get pics of my favorite knife in each wood up when I get home this evening. I am in, and I appreciate the opportunity!

    An observation - you know there is the potential for a very disappointed winner when this new knife arrives and it is not handled with a FAVORITE material. :( :rolleyes:

    Maybe some folks should withdraw to avoid this let down. ;) :D

    IMG_0299.JPG IMG_0359.JPG I am in. My favorite has to be Osage orange. But a cool second would be antique ivory micarta where it gets a little off white.

    Wow such a beautiful knife I have to participate so please count me in.
    My favorite cover material is hands down stag and particularly gnarly stag here is a project @glennbad did for me (thanks again my old friend) In the case is a Buck 110, Case Sodbuster, Case Stockman, Case Trapper, Colonial Barlow, GEC 15 Boys Knife and a TL-29 Camillus that was modifyed to a single blade liner lock with EO notch and lanyard hole.

    I'm in!

    Although I love stag and bone, my favorite cover material is wood. Here are some of my favorites:


    Olive wood

    Desert ironwood

    Curly birch

    If I win, would you please send the knife to @r redden?

    Basically it's easier for me to say what I don't like (MOP/MOT Abalone;)) All the rest I like a lot, but for the sake of entry and what I like today, here's Blonde Horn.


    Sterling GAW and should I win I'd like it sent not to me but. @.....well, I'll say if I win, who doesn't enjoy a good mystery ?;)

    Regards, Will
