    Great idea Stewart. I will try to get some pics up later, but it may have to wait til Monday. I haven't really figured out how to load pics from my phone yet. The coloring is coming great though and it is coloring in a kind of unexpected way to me, so pics are definitely in order.

    Here you go. I have done a before and after with two of the angles, but realize I did not have a before for the third angle

    The coloration on the forward facing talon surprised me. I really thought that was one of the last things that would have color.

    I definitely haven't counted, but based on how long I have had it and how much I smoke it, maybe 25?

    That's crazy lol. I have a meer I've smoked 100+ and it's not darkened like that. I guess I'll just have to order from your guy now.
