Nice! I'm waiting until later in the weekend to start a patina. I want to take some more pictures while it still has the blade etch (and new knife smell) Then it will be on the way to match my other smooth bone GECs.
Thanks, Paul!Ok Mark, love the knife, but what's the story with the baseball?
The ball was given to me by my Grandpa John, 35 years ago, when I was 12. He had gotten the ball when he was 11, (1922) while attending the game. Pitt. vs. New York
The writing reads:
"Last ball in game, Pitts. vs. New York, Polo grounds, Sunday July 30th, 1922."
I am not sure what 'Last ball in game' means, but, it's a family heirloom!
Pretty cool souvenir. At first I thought Yankees, then remembered NL and AL teams didn't play each other till October. (I was born the day the Pirates beat the Yankees in game 7 of the 1960 World Series.)
