    Hello All,

    Picked up this sweet over the top Art Washburn Large Sabertooth last week from a fine BF Member.

    I have paired it with a Traditional with custom scales.

    Interesting story is that both my seller of the custom, and myself both hand picked out own scales.

    My new Odd Couple:devilwag:

    Weathered elk or mammoth ivory...?

    Both Mammoth Ivory. The custom has more darker tones, the Traditional more red or mixed tones. But both, in the same flavor... Bark with beautiful fractures over time. Interesting enough, if one was to hold either of these knives in hand, do not expect a light knife. Mammoth Ivory is very dense and has significant weight per volume. The Custom is a reasonable size knife. But when held one would say Wow, why so heavy. The same for the big boy here, A Jumbo Swell center is not a light knife to begin with. Here are the weights of each:

    Custom: 6 1/8 oz,
    Traditional: 7 1/8 oz.
