    Mr. Hom your new lighting setup seems to work pretty well, the light is big, big enough to work just fine on those closeups of the pivot screws. The light is also soft and even throughout your example pics... the shadows are soft, not hard. And your background is first class, it's beautiful... a perfect complement to the silver color of the blade (which I'm too new to recognize :ropeman:) Best of luck & hope to see more pics in the future.

    You know what sucks?

    Missing out on all the good stuff when you start are new hobby!
    If you just registered on the JD-BA, you've got a few things to catch up on. And a lot of money to save.
    Don't worry, i'm still there.

    And another thing to know here at the JDBA, no talking in the picture thread!

    Don't you just love hypocrisy?
    So, what's everyone's take on the ivory? In or Out on this knife?

    Again it.

    Something with more character would be better. MOP, giraffe bone, etc.

    Its a nice knife for sure but ivory doesn't seem different enough from smooth bone and or white micarta in those inserts to warrant the hassle when it comes to resale.

    Yup. I love the Ivory.

    Is that an early build? Tang horns are different.....

    I feel like I need to clarify my comment.

    I think the knife is a work of art.

    Unfortunately with ivory ban any future sale is or will shortly be essentially out right?

    So this is a true safequeen/family treasure. On some Bowie's and knives with intricate carving/scrimshaw swapping handles would severely change and or ruin the piece. On this particular knife it is my opinion that that is not the case. If the ivory were swapped for Westinghouse Ivory micarta for instance only minimal damage would be done to the knives sui generis.
