Yep, that's a fair sized slip joint. Beautiful work, as usual.

I like it. Out of curiosity, what do you use to make your nail nicks?

I bet he uses 7" cut off wheel in an arbor in his drill press. That's right, I'm psychic. Or I may have read it in one of his other threads. [biglaugh]

Awesome knife. In today's world of fancy exotic woods, mammoth ivory, and wild patterned synthetics, it's refreshing to see some old school plain maroon micarta. My dad had a big old Puma lockback about that size with maroon micarta scales that rode on the dash of his truck pretty much everywhere he went when I was a kid. Very classy blade.
