    yep...but that blood red is a true grail...one of 10 Beer Scout parts knives from the 2015 Rendezvous...only three of which are blood red (Paul has another...where is the third????).

    wow. I thought you many have done it yourself. that's so nice. Had no clue that was a rendezvous knife.
    have you ever posted your whole collection of cap lifters?

    I've come close but I don't think I have ever pictured them all together...soon as I can figure out what's up with IMGUR maybe I'll pull them out. Here are some of my most prized from an older post...Iain above has a couple of these as does Paul including the Beer Scout parts knife in center which is made up of the surrounding three...take a "standard" Beer Scout, replace the sheepsfoot with the spearpoint from the Diamond Radio Jack, swap in the red sawcut covers from the Soda Scout, and you get the parts knife (this was before the special factory assembly nomenclature...they were just referred to as "parts" knives to the best of my knowledge). There are also two tortoise shell acrylic and five smooth ivory bone spearpoint Beer Scouts out there.

    That Rendezvous knife is incredible!
    I think the spear works better then the sheep blade.
    The red radio jack is a beauty too, I had one and stupidly traded it!
    I'm very happy with the chestnut & soda though.
    And I found a bail! GEC had a spare.

    That's awesome. Did you just email/call them up? Nice that they would share.

    My Beer Scout is assisting me after getting groceries on a hot day.

    I emailed them and they got back to me in a couple of days.
    $10 + $5 for shipping.

    Was watching an Evil Bay auction on a BS in Sun Bright acrylic. Sold for $510.00 . Insanity.

    Great family day today, now home smoking some Tri tip, got some summer shandy and a beer scout came full circle...

    I sold this to a buddy on a watch forum over 3 years ago. Just got it back yesterday. So happy. It’s a user but now With the scratches and blunt edge I don’t have an excuse to not use it.

    I didn’t watch but have it bookmarked so I could check the final sale price, even crazier as it was used.

    @Markeologist and @Onebigbill I am watching the evil bay as well for a Beer Scout, just amazing what they are going for, I would love to get one, but might just settle for the beer and sausage knife.
