I'll call it a late b'day present to myself; Ek Pigsticker:

These were made in the mid-1980's, before Ek Knives was acquired by Blackjack Knives. The pattern is based on an old Case butcher's sticking knife, some of which were carried by our soldiers and Marines in WWII. Ek made a nice clean copy with plain wood grips (look like maple) and sandblasted stainless steel blade. It's a little smaller than I thought it would be, but it is in like-new condition and I have no complaints, since they aren't made anymore. $140 from eBay.
