    I think 'Pizza' acrylic with oregano leaf shield needs a look in too...;) If done well it could look tasty :D But done badly and it's like dog-barf :D:eek:

    Darren, I have another request to put on your books, and I think I can be quite patient. Full-size trappers are too big for me, but I like the mini trappers. And I like the "improved" mini trappers with clip and wharncliffe blades. But, for me, an even better improvement would be to replace the CLIP blade of a mini trapper with a wharncliffe, and keep the spey blade.

    So that's my request: a mini trapper with wharncliffe and spey blades. As for cover material, I like chestnut jigged bone or stag or ebony.

    (Maybe a "super improved mini trapper" with lambsfoot and spey would be worth dreaming up too.)

    Thanks @waverave ! Pretty cool. Appreciate the effort :thumbsup:
    And someone correct me, but to your earlier questions, yes, ns= nickel silver... and no, I don't think GEC has made a saddlehorn. They should!

    Thanks, Darren!! I'll take one of each! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup::D
    Those, especially the lambsfoot models, look even better than I was visualizing in my mind's eye when I was contemplating "improvements" to the mini trapper. Maybe I should change my avatar!
    Great work! :):thumbsup::cool:
