i say keep the blake and gift your mom the mercer satchel. at least it's staying in the family, and whenever you miss it, you can always borrow it from her. that's why i love giving my mom bags i'm on the fence about!

I like the blake better, I have a weakness for those big pushlocks

Hmmm I think each is a very classic style, but the Blake seems to be a staple in almost every MJ collection (not mine yet though :P). You seem to favor the blake so I say go w/ that. I've tried on both and the Blake seems awesome as an everyday bag and easier to get things in/out of.

I agree that you should keep the Blake - the leather's more worn on the Blake than the Mercer Satchel, so I'd say the latter would be a more appropriate gift for your mother. Congrats on the new bag!

Blake is a classic that will always be in style. I would keep it and and give the other to your mom. You must have a great mom to give her such a nice gift.
