    A few weeks ago I had my small Buck Vantage pimped/modified by an Internet buddy of mine, Randy. The stock knife is decent, but kind of blah. Now I think it's just pure awesomeness. Whatdy'all think?

    Coarse olive drab G10 front scale, smooth orange G10 back scale, antique finish on all metal parts, and rounded spine.

    Gorgeous. The Vantage Small has one of my favorite form factors of all time and with all that pimping it looks great. How much?

    Thanks guys! :D

    I am not taking in any G-10 work right now, but around the first of the year I should have a clear work bench again.

    Thanks again ATF! It was a fun one to do :)
