Queen's White Carved Stag Bone has another enthusiast here
Rogers and Winterbottom bone = good
Not many examples of bad jigging seen here. Even the ones shown, I though to myself, I could live with that. Maybe I'm not very picky...
Not very good jigging on this one IMO
or this one
I too think it is a personal preference rather it be for looks or for the grip texture. Some like the jigging to be worn smooth and very subtle while others might like it rough as a cob. I was looking at a peach seed jigged bone knife recently and it was like grabbing a hoof rasp with very pointed spikes. I like it to be some where in between just so I can get a good grip even with wet blood or slippery fat on it. To me it’s a functional matter and not so much the eye appeal. Don’t get me wrong I do like the nice looking jigged patterns but if I can’t grasp it soundly in messy stuff it’s dangerous. Just 11 days ago I had a bad experience with a smooth wood handled knife that got away from me and stuck into my right inner thigh close to the artery. It nicked a smaller vessel and it bled profusely till we got to the ER. It wasn’t as bad as it could have been but it was still an expensive accident.
My first experience with Rope jigging...I like it
Probably my least favourite is the golfbally type jigging on the blue Schrade in the middle...Boker washboard and the ropecut are favourites....its like beer....they dont make bad beer just some are better than others
Sorry, Jon, they DO make bad beer: light beer and all IPA's.
Vince the words light and beer do not belong together. As for the IPA...I can be a bit fussy...had a NEIPA...a while back which boasted of tasting like brekky juice...disgusting is the word that springs to mind.cheers
Not exactly bad but lacklustre. OK it's an inexpensive RR knife you say...
That's true but they can also pull a few surprises as with this Mini Cotton Sampler
More into the bolster from GEC and a fine dark Red. The shield also augments this type of jigging.
This Wards Cattle knife has some fine jigging
I like this perspective. I have enjoyed the look of the “peach seed” jigging, but the few times I’ve held it on a GEC it has been a little “toothy” or sharp.
My most recent addition looks good, but has some toothy parts.
This looks like an attempt at culpepper jigging:
Thats a good knife ...but that jigging is golfbally or like something off a 1970s space show set.
One of my favorite jigging patterns on a GEC.
It has a quirky tube story S.A.R.P.N.T and I wonder if the jigging wasn’t made to look sort of like snake skin.
