I had both with wrist thong, both rare for each, but I am a big fan of wrist thongs.

Most,if not all,of my Randall knives have wrist thongs. Even the guns I wear while fishing have a lanyard ring of sorts to prevent the ominous splash of a gun or knife going into the drink.

Such an event can put the damper on the day's activities.

I just took the Cattleman out of the vault and was comparing it to the Smoke Jumper. It is a bit larger but still nice.

Boy-O do I agree with the thong add on IF ever think might be used on/in/near water. I've not lost anything to the Aquagods YET, but I've witnessed several things disappear in the ocean/lake/quarry including knives, cameras and the best was watching a buddy feed anchor rope hand-over-hand all the way in.....having forgotten to tie off HIS new anchor in HIS new boat. Priceless expression.
And my wonderful wife throwing one of my salt water rigs into waste deep surf during her first double hook-up in her first Bluefish Blitz. Reeling hard as she could she couldn't stay ahead of them hooked & coming hard straight at her legs. I retrieved it even with two on my own rod. We laughed hard two hours later when they gave us a break.
Sorry.....took a side road there.

AND Ruana is great to talk with about adding thongs....or not. Or building you a filet knife that they haven't made in years; just like the one you have. They may want to do two vs. one.....and it might take a few months BUT they do get back to you to do it . Outstanding .

If you special order, they always make 2 just in case one gets messed up. I've order 2 different custom models from them and was offered the 2 that were made. One was the 10B Smokejumper with a brass parry strop, thong hole and flap sheath. So I didn't take the 2nd one and someone has it.
