Welcome Home

Thanks to a heads up from Jan I just snagged this custom little Buck #305 Lancer from Greg Holmes at Trestle Pines Knives. It is lightly used but is otherwise in excellent condition. Whoever did the customizing did a fantastic job, the transition from bolster to handle is as perfect as a factory job, and the handle itself is smooth as factory smooth bone. Greg also added a bit of class to the transaction by including a nifty little zipper pouch; well done Greg.

This is my first truly custom knife, so I probably won't carry this much but will house it in my "Special Knives" display cabinet with my SFO's. Here are a few photos.

Edit: well for some reason I can't get jpegs to attach to this blog post, am gonna just try to post this then try to upload to thein the comments section. If that doesn't work I'll post the whole thing to a Forum post and see if it works there. This is the first problem I have had with this, please stay tuned for updates.

Thanks Dennis, it turned into a "thing" but we eventually got it done. Wish I knew why, I've posted a multitude of photos here with the same PC so it's kind of a puzzle. Anyway I've got a great little knife for the collection out of the whole ordeal.

Thanks Jan, yes it is nice, not sure who did it but seems like it was a one-off by a former owner. Most customs are fancier than this knife, but like the baby bear I think it is "Just right".

Sorry for all the issues uploading those photos, I will be looking for another PC so it won't happen again.

"There Has Been An Error" over and over again, and no luck uploading photos to the comment area, (guess what it says when I try?). I emailed the photos to you Jan, maybe you will have better luck. Guess it's time for a more modern laptop.
