VCM3 - As much as I really like a lot of Tony's work, that Lanny's Clip #26 really speaks to me. That is one beautiful knife! If only I could work one of those into my budget.
Those Shadow trappers in micarta talks to me. And they are saying,
-LET ME LIVE IN SWEDEN.
Seams to be something to bring to a troutstream.
Thank's lambertiana,and Sharp NJ . I just gotta add something about the "budget".
For a long time,I had heard,and knew of,the fact,that everyone raved of Tony and Reese' work.
I was offered a few Bose knives over the years,at pricetags that I wish I could have got that Lanny's at,but at the time,I could or would not "work it into my budget"
I have to thank my wife,for changing my mind.I saw her one evening,scrubbing a pot in the sink,with her wedding set on her ring finger
I paid a little over 4 times what I paid for my Lanny's,for her "user",so my "user",is a bargain.
It helped put everything in perspective.
I've posted this before and no longer own the knife. I think Shaldag owns it now and I hope he doesn't mind. Ed, are ya carrying this one?
I remember that :D.
Having that five-blade knife was like living in a desert and then having Jessica Alba’s car breakdown at your door step: It was fun while it lasted.
Here are a few of my fave WT scans:
New to me Barlow:
I just Busted a nut
Nice scans 92. I just counted 6-7 knives in this thread that used to be mine....don't I feel stupid. Only a few I miss real bad...but they were all amazing. JT
(and I would not be able to improve on that pic anyway).
I felt that I wanted your permission first.
Look, you were right, Mike. It really is too nice to carry.
And that pearl must be fragile.
And I do have a Tony Bose wharncliffe trapper similar to the one posted above (but in CPM 440V)--if I feel that I really need to carry a Bose.
The trouble is, when I leave it at home, it keeps calling:
"eeeeedddddddddd-- come get me--take me with you---
I wanna go to work.....".
So it's easier to just leave it in my pocket (leather slip case, of course). :D
It gets some work occasionally.
Seriously, I have come to the conclusion that life is too short
to leave a knife like this at at home.
This thread is killin' me :D. (I am with Ran!)
Keep 'em coming! This is almost as good as visiting Tony and Reese's table before the drawing (only without the folks).
Uh, now that I am spoken for (somewhat), I'll take the knife over Jessica any day.
Ed, you're my hero for carrying that knife. I lived in terror that I would drop it on a tile floor or sidewalk. That's your picture now.
I just emailed Kerry that I would take the Bose knives over 30 seconds (on a good day) of bliss with Jessica. I do need counseling.
So, if Imus were here to summarize this particular conundrum for us it would read something like this...
Bose, not ho's... :cool: :D ;)
Not mine, but some of you may be able to guess the who the owner is since I think it was posted on another forum. (posted here with his permission)
Same pattern as Greg's. Bone was jigged and dyed by Reese and I'm told it is the only single blade model of that pattern made to date. It is 5 3/8" in the closed position.
I'm off to go have a smoke now, and I don't even smoke.
Mike, I'll join you for that smoke. Wow!
Mike I want to marry that knife..
Here is one that used to ride in the Old Dog's Pocket..trying to convince the present owner to let it ride in mine!
Those Wharncliffe trappers really speak to me. Someday .......
Some beautiful Bose knives posted here! Thanks all for showing.
where you all finding these knives? I've googled and searched but keep coming up empty...
I like this handle style,on the Trapper.I've asked Reese to do this on my #6 on order.It is a little different than the reg. #6 (I think ,Tony ?? )
Looking at 92's pics is like a walk down memory lane. Either JT or I owned all of those at one time or another. Ah, the good old days... 2 years ago. Some of those are worth double what we were exchanging them for. What an idiot I was for letting that napanock bone WT go. Napanock bone is every bit as nice and unique as remington bone imho.
Re: the pearl 5 blade. I'd never carry a 5 blade and I would never carry a pearl handled knife of any kind. You must mean a different Ed. I own one pearl knife. Tony's 4 blade congress serial #1. Even if it were made out of rubber I still wouldn't dare carry it!
Fasteddie, I did mean Shaldag-Ed, the current owner of that knife.
Sounds like you guys were passing some great knives around to each other. I think I came to the game a little late.
Wow, even more great knives.
That's it, I wanna be in the rotation for the next go round of knives changing hands!!! :thumbup: :cool:
This is without a doubt the greatest thread ever.
Ask her to sell a pair of HER custom made earings,on Ebay,'cause you fell short of pocket cash for the month.
This perspective worked for me,4 Sure.
Tony requested that I post a picture of this 4.0" closed Case 6380 pattern whittler. To date only four of these have been made.
