Hi Ron:
What an awesome knife, and as always you did a superb job with the engraving.

Aces and eights, also known as "the dead mans hand" there should be a pair of each. This was the hand that Wild Bill Hitchcock was holding when he was shot in the back, wile playing poker in a saloon down in DeadWood, South Dakota, in his latter years he was down on his luck and spent most of his time gambling and trying to stay out of dept.

I'm preaty sure thats how the story goes, DeadWood is a cool place to visit and the only place in SD where full gambling is legal.

Ron was a great guy to work with on this, and while the "gambler" theme was something we both kicked around, the design was all his. It was just a pleasure to deal with you Ron, and you already know how I feel about your work. Have a great time at the blade show, and I look forward to future projects...Rich

Well thanks to every body for your kind coments .I did enjoy working on this knife and i want to thank Rich for the business.. The photos dont do this knife any justice it is a beautiful knife with it mastadon ivory handle and the great job that Lee did in crafting this knife . it was a challange to engrave and gold inlay , the bolsters on this knife are only 1 inch square ..
