    After years of following AS I can finally say I own one.
    A buddy ordered it a few weeks ago and when it arrived a couple weeks ago the handle was too short for his extremely large hands. So I gladly gave him his money back for it. Best feeling handle I've ever held. It's not exactly what I would have ordered but it's perfect all the same. I would have referred white micarta and no firesteel loop but when you're offered a brand new AS with no wait you jump on it.

    Arizona Desert Ironwood with matching
    firesteel.

    That is beautiful, congrats man.

    Your buddy needs to try a Mountaineer, the handle will fit him much better.

    It's a beauty set for sure. And, if it isn't what you were looking for I'll gladly give you your money back for it,;). Just kidding, but seriously, it's a beauty. Personally, I wouldn't order a new one without a loop, matching firesteel, and dangler.

    Thanks guys I do love it. I see it getting a lot of use. I will be adding another before it's over. I think the size of the Classic is perfect for my uses. So far it's only cut paper.

    Update
    Just ordered my buddy a Mountaineer with Ohio Buckeye Burl to replace the Classic I took from him. I believe it will fit him better.
