Hey guys,

Got my package from Steven Janik this weekend. Wow!

Got a couple of big old slabs of purple heart scale stock...which is one of my all time favorites, but that I haven't gotten around to trying yet. And a couple more big slabs of Tiger wood scale stock...which is one that I saw used on a recurve bow once and have wanted to try ever since. COOL!

Steve even included one of the same kind of beautiful scabbards made by Robert Jones that he uses for his knives. Has cool tooling and what looks like boa snake skin inlay. I'm thinking maybe Tiger wood scales on the knife to fit a scabbard with snake skin would be cool. Sounds good, right?

But the coolest thing in the box was a Warthog tusk from an animal that Steve harvested on a safari himself. Man...that is just plain cool.

I'm a traditional bow and black powder hunter almost exclusively myself and this really struck a cord with me. First thing I thought was either a personal quiver knife or maybe a patch knife for my old 54 cal TC Renegade would be perfect. But I'm going to have to think about this one some. This thing is to cool to waste.

Thanks Steve! Really appreciate the thought.

...... so the 10 year old on a nature trip won out over your sworn duty to keep fellow dogs informed?

Where are your priorities dawg?

Man O Man! You guys are going all out on supplies. I need to get in on this next time. I thought you were just going to swap a handle block or two. This is amazing! Christmas in February.

I hope Bruce gets me in the next one:D

It was a great experience. And another way to unload doubles and triples and someone get a use out of them.

I think the best part was filling the box and tossing in a couple items they would never expect.

I look forward to the next one for sure!
