C9 FLE today for my last day off. Put it back on the original strap and fitted a CW buckle as I don't get on with the deployant clasp.

After wifey found my c60 yesterday she had another rootle around in the boxes to find any other gems.

It was fruitful! This poor C11, totally overshadowed by the Makaira (they were ordered together), was only worn 3 times in its life, last time a couple of years ago.

Thought that I would try it on a rubber with red stitching and I actually rather like the result!

Apologies and thanks gents!

The trouble was that it was ordered with the Makaira. When they arrived, the Makaira just immediately screamed wear me! I wore this a couple of times but it got overlooked. Wifey packed it away and the rest is history.

Now.... she has said that there is another somewhere! The hunt begins.
