Took these photos a long time back with my Ricoh RDC5000:



That is an Emerson Knives "Commander" that was customized by Frank Recupero with desert ironwood scales and ivory inlaid backspacer and extensive filework to both blade and liners. The top image is closer to the actual colour.

Very nice work on the Commander!

FYI, $10 off $50 of Kershaw knives on Amazon right now, good time to get a solid mid-level blade or two. I carry a Blur daily and love it, not intrusive and sharp as shit from the factory. Tempted to buy a pair of Cryo's for stashing in the vehicles but I picked up a factory 2nd Ontario RD9 for $63 tonight so the knife budget is temporarily tapped. Looking forward to putting some wear on the big chopper.

Nice golock!

I'm going to have to re-grind my Condor golock with a similar nice, wide flat bevel.

Just got this one today and when I unwisely decided to push the blade through the plastic package it popped out and chew into my finger hard! Man, I've been bitten by these pretty good before but this is a new record!

Well, this variety of knife does tend to bite a little more frequently than most.

If anybody here has any comments or experience with this knife they'd like to share I'd appreciate it.
May be a little late, but this is my EDC. Only nonserrated. Awesome knife. I have two actually!
