Original Brown Micarta Thread (1959-65)

In recent light of photo hosting becoming a huge issue for some of the finest threads on the planet, I would like to initiate a fresh research link on the very scarce Brown Micarta from the early 60's. Similar to an owner registry if you will.

There has been some very exhaustive research on the topic by a well respected member of the Randall community already, so we do not have any need to re-hash that, just an informal "Head Count" of these knives. If you own one or know someone who does, please share it with us for their historical interest!

I will kick it off with a few pics of my original "Ward Gay" Special Skinner. These were the precursor to the Model 20 Yukon Skinner pattern of the present.

Bill-

In the photos the handle of the model 5 looks like black micarta. Of note is the Angier model did not come out until after the use of brown was all but over. Even in Gaddis it is described as Bradford liked the NS hilt contrast with the black micarta. Bring it to Gator, would like to see it.
