    That's still one of my favorite handle combos. Reminds me of the old wingtip shoes.

    #3 showed up in my mail box this fine St. Patricks Day! Found it for sale on BF and had to grab it. This is the only picture I have at this time but I will be sure to take some more and post them in the near future. I really like this knife.

    That's the one! Very cool score, man. I used that one so much I beat the original handles off of it. haha. That's the only one to date that has the thermal mycarta.

    I took #3 out for a walk today to see how it felt in my hand. Did some split wood fire prep with big leaf maple. Sorry Solocanoe, this is a tough little knife that I intend to hold onto. Nice work Mr. Turley.

    Great pics hunter and slice.
    Hunter, in pic five of homeslice's post is what your knife used to look like...before I did stupid stuff like beat on the pommel without a pommel plate.
    You listening Homeslice?
    I see that pic of the hedge stump with your Gasconade driven in half way. Just sayin'.
    Heh.
    Glad you guys like them, it really is nice to hear.

    You can see how this pattern has changed since those first prototypes.
    My newer Gasconade is on top in this pic and Slicer's is on the bottom. Slicer's is the same specs as hunter's since it was one of the prototypes.

    One of the best looking Turleys of all time. It's like a tuxedo made of steel.

    IZ, do you remember making any of these knives? If so do you have any funny stories on them?

    I remember just about everyone of them. The only ones that blur together some are the o.d. green ones, there have been lots of those so they don't stand out too much.
    No funny stories really, I got some stories of frustration though. heh.


    Great pics, J.

    Liking it so far, my wife was eying it up already. I suspect when you are taking new orders again she is going to want one with hot pink g10 or something.

    I cannot believe how lucky and blessed I am! Number 17 will be on its way to me tomorrow!

    It is now confirmed that I have been infected with the highly contagious Turley Knife virus and the only known treatment is to own more! :)

    Ah, So that is where it went :) I tried snagging it also but was a few minutes too late, which in Turleyville is similar to days. Good job and enjoy.

    My first real Turley (other than a Tops PSK) Gasconade River #6. Im sad to say that I haven't taken it to the woods yet even though I have had it since Saturday! I have a concussion and have to be real careful and rest but I'll post more photos it it's natural environment. But for now:

    Does putting a pommel plate on the Gasconade change the shape of the handle much?

    Not a whole lot usually. Check out the gallery on the site, there's a couple with pommel plates in there. Not sure how recent they are though.

    Great pic, Chris!

    Thread bump KnifeCraft has me thinking about the club knife again. Well to be honest I never really stopped.

    Gotta do more digging around is there a blackwater thread?

    Hey Pastor Chris where's those pics at?
