Avid reader and infrequent poster here on the thread. Definitely enjoy reading about and seeing the Alden's in your collections.
I wanted to share some pictures of my black alpine grain LWB that I received from Alden of Carmel yesterday. My Alden purchases have almost exclusively been shell so this pair of alpine grain is expanding my horizons a bit. I really like the pebble grain texture.

These are A+! I love the grain look right now.
