Nice! :D:thumbsup: 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.

Great knives! May I ask what pattern the smallest one is?

Ok Mark, love the knife, but what's the story with the baseball?
Thanks, Paul! :thumbsup:
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.)

Edit: somehow my remarks appear above, looking like the post I was quoting and replying to. My comment begins with: "Pretty cool souvenir."
