This would be my favorite that I own. I know the handle material is Pumkin Swirl Acrylic. My daughter picked this knife out for my son's first knife when we stopped down for knife days a couple years ago. She was 3 at the time and he wasent quite one yet. She picked this one because it reminded her of his birthday which is on Halloween.

I don't mean to be controversial, but I'm not sure I can convey this without the controversy. Simply stated, & I know there will be many who disagree with me here: I like squirrels. I think they're awesome. They're cute, they're cunning, they're mischievous (to the point of being annoying, I know), and they're so incredibly determined. And they're everywhere, including in my urban yard, so I can always be reminded of some of the best wildlife we have in this area. And they helped me through a particularly dark time in my life that occurred not too long ago (but I won't get into that here). So there, I said it, I like squirrels. Flame me if you must.
It was during another difficult time, one of many with a specific boss (if I'd only known then how bad it would become, but that's another story I won't get into here). I decided to just indulge myself in a new knife. I was fixated on single-blade lock-back hunters at the time (more like Queen's Mountain Man than Buck's 110). I'd learned of GEC's Missouri Trader (#42), so I thought maybe it would be worth seeking one out with green Micarta, I really wanted a folder with green Micarta at the time, seemed like a perfect combination if I could find it.
But I thought I'd put these eBay searches on the back-burner & instead look for a knife with a squirrel (or even acorn) theme first. Things were getting frustrating at work & parenting was a bit rough at the time, & we were experiencing a heavy rain, one that might have been easier to appreciate if the sun hadn't already set. I just wanted a knife with a squirrel on it that I could carry in my pocket while at work or out with the family, something to remind me of these awesome little rodents even when I couldn't see any. Scrolling through the search results, I saw this -- so of course I bought it, it was simply too serendipitous to pass up, as if the universe was letting me know it was there for me...
