Guess I'm the first one posting the AWESOME box I got from rootes_of_ohio. It took all my willpower to not open it until I had my box ready to ship out. They say good things come to those that wait. YES! I now truly believe that.
As you can see I opened the box to find 15 gorgeous pieces of Premium Stag. It looks like it was stained and then stabilized. Tim says there's 5@ 4.5", 5@ 5" and email@example.com". After checking each and every piece out I knew of a couple that will end up on knives for me. When I stood the pieces on end all I could think of was a forest of Stag. To say I'm pleased with what I received would be a total understatement.
I almost feel embarassed to accept this package. Patrick went well above and beyond, I couldn't believe the materials I was unpacking.....3 bars of 1084, 1 bar of 5160, 2 bars of 6150 (? unsure of that one).....2 slabs of brown linen micarta....2 sticks of G11...7 various wood and antler handle materials...brass plate and hex. It's all well appreciated and usable. THANK YOU PATRICK.
On a side note....
I was sent out of town this week and returned tonight which left Clancy (Earnie) twisting in the wind. I already contacted him and appologised for letting his package sit in my car for a week....it's gone tomorrow morning. Again, I'm sorry for the delay Ernie.
