|Colt Gunstock Jack Knife|
As with anything I can find a few things I would do differently if I were running the show. First would probably involve the covers, which by the way, are very well fit. I presume the tiny ridges, like lines on a topographical map, found on the covers are a result of the way they are made but I don't know and they could just as easily be some sort of aesthetic feature. The covers are bone, sculpted to look like stag antler or some facsimile thereof, and I have considered knocking the tiny ridges down and buffing the high spots in an effort to lighten them somewhat more like antler. But, in the end they are attractive as-is and have some really beautiful colors including a deep burgundy in the darkest places.
I don't dislike the Colt "C" in the one bolster, but I would probably leave it out. Along the same theme, I'm not in love with the circular shield they devised. I just think something traditional would be that final touch, an actual shield or decorative plaque perhaps.
|Centering is good, with the small blade off to one side but not rubbing.|
|The Jack is a somewhat larger knife but not too big.|
|Less than perfectly blended and fit springs, hardly an issue though.|
