I picked up this Jerry Hossom Bird and Trout back in November at the New York Custom Knife Show. This one has been on my wish list for some time now. This is a beautiful little knife that will disappear when carried in a vest pocket or around the neck. The next step is to find someone to make a sheath for it. I may just give the blade a kydex cover for now, until I can find something better. As much as I like the knife it is not exactly what I was looking for, but since these knives are so few and far between I jumped on it.
Just in case your interested, the version below is what I had in mind. As you can see its a slightly longer blade with a little different shape. You can't see it in this photo but there is a line cutter on the ricasso (on the other side of the notch). The hunt continues...
