I just got this beautiful large Gambler from Perry. I saw his post and the wood got me right away. It is stabilized box elder burl. I have a small one also, and this new one seems much bigger than my other one. This is another highlight of my collection.

I saw the larger Gambler at the Randall Shop only last week and mistook it for a combat companion,it really is a deceptively beefy blade with fantastic grind lines.

Great photo Steve,I can see why now I was confused ,they are kinda similar,before having the large Gambler in hand I had no idea it was such a substansial blade,its now on my "must have" list.

When I designed the Gambler back in the early 1980s my thought was a symmetrical blade profile along the lines of a model #2 or model #24 but with a top false edge. Each one is, of course, made by hand and each one is different.
Occasionally the false edge can have a more angular profile rather than the rounded, symmetrical point. You can see variations in the four large Gamblers below. The handle materials from left to right are Snakewood, Stag, Koa and Ivory.

Great looking knives Rick. That snakewood really just jumped off the page.
