    This makes 5.... but I've still got a couple of months to go!!!! ;D

    I really don't know how it happened. It's absolutely true that I have had some amazing luck and been extremely blessed by the powers of Area 51 this year. :bow: :bow: :bow:

    Just when I thought this thread couldn't get any better... :highfive:

    Reverse grind? Do you mean the bottom side of the PryBaby at the butt end is ground to meet the front (if that makes any sense)?

    Exactly -- you got it. The grind on the back of the piece extends about halfway from the screwdriver tip to the hole -- only 5mm. Strange, but I've owned that PB for over a year and never noticed that grind until today. I was VERY surprised to see it there! In fact, before I saw it there today I had no idea there was any such thing as an Atwood tool with a grind on the flip side. I think I found that PB on Ebay!

    Yeah baby...that's what I'm talking about! Congrats on some GREAT matching Atwoods. That Emerald Arc is very cool!

    Is there an inlay in the Emerald Arc's thumbstud?

    :roof: :woohoo: :roof:

    Good eye, Barry. There are dual synthetic emeralds in the Emerald Arc's thumbstuds. I always thought the name came from the dyed California Buckeye burl scales, but a closer look revealed otherwise. Bonus!!

    Now if I could only find the wicked cousin seen on Peter's Emerald Arc page!!!

    Speaking of folders

    I thought that I would take this one out of the safe and photograph it. I hope you like it.

    Thanks for the reply Soup...I really appreciate the subtle features of a knife that separate them from all others! Best of luck located the next Arc.

    Kibitz...sandblasted tiger stripes...simply AWESOME! That has to be a "one of a kind" finish on a simply great little pocket pal!

    Atwood folders seem to be the latest topic in this post...if you have one, let's see it!

    :roof: :woohoo: :roof:

    Too cool, kibitz. That's a corker. What is the background? Something you got from Peter or did you make it yourself?

    It is exactly how it came from Peter. I wouldn't change a thing. I just need to find the other 4 and buy them.

    kibitz, I meant the background the knife is sitting on. With the multiple Atwood logos printed in black and white. What is that?

    You guys are killing me with these UFOs!!!!!!

    Soup, I bought a Prybaby from another EDCer a while ago and he sent that sheet to me. It is cardboard and might be an uncut sheet of Atwood ID cards ?? Not sure..
