And thus concludes today's geological lesson!  My goodness, well synthetic sure helps explain the price differential!

Blade Etch though for sure would be unique.  I find this funny... Ralph operates out of his basement and has stock on some of these knives so keep him in mind for a hard to find or discontinued or just plain out of stock.

Oh yeah.  There ain't no such thing as red turquoise.  The red stone is synthetic bloody basin jasper which is a red jasper with spider vein of black, brown, or green.  (Not to be confused with Bloody Jasper which is a green jasper with red veins.)  The yellow stone in the Stoneworx line is yellow jasper.  These stones are often called red and yellow turquoise but the stones are NOT turquoise. 

Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium.

Jasper, a form of chalcedony, is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in color; and rarely blue.

Well I did see a difference in the stone layout but was not sure if they produced them all identical?

That Stoneworx looks a tad different than the ones I've seen.  I only have one of the Stockmans(RR914).  The other ones are RR913 and RR915.  Does this one have a pattern number.  The stone layout is different than the other Stoneworx Stockmans and I've never seen that blade etch.  Pretty cool looking stockman.

Well I spoke with Ralph Mitchell today at Cowboy Knives and Collectibles. He is a great guy and does have a few of the out of stock knives that SMKW might not have. He said the Lady leg knife was the new Stoneworx he got in, just to clarify.  But many fine Rough Riders and Colts and other House Brands that may show out of stock at SMKW.

Thanks Billy well not sure what new one Rodney wasbtalking about. It does look like the same knife Peter.  Now I will say I cant find the rounded bolsters?

Comment by Billy Oneale yesterday
