I also built a test SAR firewalker in ironwood, its a great piece with a little bit of "sapwood" on one side. The pace counter in premium grade kangaroo leather on a cowhide thong. The last thing to be attached and I am waiting for to arrive is a "Marbles" brass pocket compass. I have 2 more 1095's to build and when they are done I will outfit them all in a drop leg rig.
Thanks and enjoy
