    Update... my Otter Messer anchor knife arrived today. I got the "large" sized one, and it is a handful. It is also the sharpest knife I have ever received.... even including my Opinels. The edge on this one is amazing. Fit and finish is as nice as most of my Case knives, but not quite as nice as a GEC. It is a little stiff on opening/closing, but I think it will smooth out with use. Looking at the pivot area of the blade shows it to be very nicely finished, no rough spots visible. All in all, I'm very impressed with it. I already plan to order the "small" sized anchor knife to complement this one. Here are a couple of early pics of it... more to follow, I'm sure.

    Yes, I believe that is what they are... they look very much like Macassar ebony, though. I don't know if there is a great deal of difference in the two woods.. visibly there is not.

    edit: I meant Gabon ebony... my mistake. Macassar usually has more brown streaks in it, in my experience...

    goodness.... too much Boker and Puma goodness to comment on.... I really like the looks of the Boker barlow... very classy looking. Tom and Huck would be amazed at that one..:D
    The Puma spearpoint is a really nice looking one, also. What model is it? 210921? I remember, growing up, that Puma used to be more frequently seen than today..

    One more question... the three at the top... are they A.Wrights, or some other maker?

    Visually, high quality gabon ebony and African blackwood are very similar - very fine grain, very dark black. Blackwood sometimes has a purplish cast. Blackwood (dalbergia melanoxylon) is a member of the rosewood family and is denser and harder than gabon ebony (diospyros crassiflora), or any other species of ebony.


    The Puma spearpoint is 210921. The lock is hidden, you have to rotate the two handle scales in opposite directions to unlock it.
    The three lambsfoot knives are A Wright.
