    He’ll be back.

    He’ll need a major memory upgrade for that job.

    I think your research is sound, professor.
    My gf/now wife found mine in the late 70’s on the sidewalk.

    Thanks... My suggestion of trying an additional finish is based upon my cocobolo knife from AG Russell. It has not darkened and it's a user.

    It looks to have had a sealer of some sort applied but not sure. And any rate, being a woodworker, I would feel pretty confident applying a finish to the cocobolo. I wonder if anyone can speak to doing so ??

    It's likely the custom makers know.

    Thanks, 'Buzz. I couldn't agree with you more.
    The maker is Eldon Talley, if I remember correctly he was mentored by S.R. Johnson. He was obviously a good student.
