Take care John. See ya in a couple of weeks.
I can not wait to spend some time with you guys. All of you have safe trips, have good luck at the dawings and let me know if there is anything I can lend a hand with. The fifteen minute drive does not take much out of me. ;)
Yesterday we went out on the water,sailing out of Orient Pt.,LI,NY.We "limited out" on striped bass in under 2 hrs,our six man charter took 12 (two per man),28" & over,these are up to 23 lbs.
Today I prepared some sautee'd bass medallions
I trimmed the "red stuff" off the whole fillets,using,first,my Kerry Hampton Swayback in D-2,and then I gave my T Bose BP in CPM 10V a try Both knives,like scalpels for this ,but the fat from the fillets has to be rised off the blade,otherwise your edge can't "bite"
I was curious to see,what the contact of the bass meat would do to the steel.
Normally,I'd use my Paul LeBatard Fillet that cullpeppj hooked me up with,it's ATS-34
I washed both knives off with fresh water real good after using them,& dried them off real good,after dinner I oiled 'em up
Surprisingly,the bass out of "old salty" did nothing to either the D-2 or the CPM 10V
A question for Tony,or anyone who knows,If that CPM 10V steel comes into contact with salt water & is not rinsed down right away,say like hours,will it rust ? Maybe a stupid question,but tonights test was in a controlled situation,I'm just wondering how much of "old salty" these steels can take
Thanks in advance & hope you like the fish pix
I don't think the 10V rusts readily but I would keep an eye on it. It is a carbon steel. The D2 would more likely get some pits in it around salt water. If you clean them at the end of the day you would probably be OK.
Can one of you please tell me where I can go on the net to purchase a Bose knife? Thanks very much.
You just have to be quick. When they show up they are usually gone in seconds!
what were you trolling
nice nice haul!
xbxb - There's one right now at knife purveyor.
also a R. Bose on iqknives.com...a bit pricy, but if you really want one, a knife is worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it.
My old Saddlehorn just got a new buddy today. From Tony at the Shepard Hills shindig in Nashville.
That is an awesome looking pair!
I got the one on the left coming Tues, my niece did the pickup, got the free Case bandanna and a signed paper showing Authenticity by the old dawg himself.
Ain't I got a sweet niece?:)
I'd be pretty nice to you also if you paid me $100 to pick up a knife. I'm more than happy to run down to the knife store and get you a swiss army knife or something...and I'll only charge you $20 and a bottle of crappy bourbon (joking)
Had medical appointments in Bham and celebrating Son's Birthday Today.
Come over to Blade and I will buy you a coke or something stronger, like sweet tea.;)
Yea, it was a pleasure chattin with him. I'll definitely see you in Atlanta and just might take you up on the drink.
This thread is almost obscene, the knives are so cool.
Received one a few weeks ago that I ordered from Reese a while back. Looks like the one below, but without the shield. Will post pics of the actual knife when I get back to my other place where it is stored. The ivory is really a nice color with good "grain".
Not quite sure how to do the Jessica Alba analogy, so I will say this knife is like Charlise Theron - lean, beautiful and curvy with creamy scales.
Nice one, Geode.
Congrats on this neat piece - she's a beauty.
You Sir I Must Damn..Damn You!
Post Them Pics!!!!
Man that knife is beautiful! Congratulations Jeff!
I am sure all the rest of the Bose hos are drooling and plottin'. :D.
The first big folder is from around 1977 or 78 and the old gunstock is probably 80s. I will have KHam take some post worthy pics for your viewing pleasure, at The Blade. These will have to do for now..
Geode, that serpentine pattern is such a great knife!
I should be so lucky!!
Thanks for the history lesson Randy. Great knives! Are you bringing them to the Blade? I have an older Bose I will bring also! It would be cool to have an archive of old Bose patterns somewhere!! (Tony may cringe a little at that! The wages of perfectionism<G>)
Thanks Waynorth!! Glad you like the pics and yes I will bring some for show and tell.. I like to see the progress over the years..I have been looking for an older T. Bose ever since I let my first one go about 10 years ago. Its good to pick up a few new Bose but I will be out of green before I even see Blade ;( I may make a "Will Work For Knives" sign and set out at the ramp during the show and see if I can pick up a little for trade... ;)
Oh..I think I see a hint of Saddlehorn in that first knife..
Only 9 days left!!
I'll toss this in the old knife group photo. I think I've posted it before. Showed Tony this one last weekend and he grinned a little bit...mostly at the worn down stag.
Nice Grab Randy
Love that ole Stag!
Damnest Thou..Thy Be Damned!
Thanks for posting CNAS!! That's a dandy!!
Riad..Nothing but love from this end.. ;).. See ya in about a week Broheem..first round is on me:D
This is a first, two firsts actually. This Tony 4.5" BP is stamped "1" and sports a keyhole shield (sometimes called a "chicken bone shield" and yours truely coined "scrotum shield" :D ) which is a first for a Bose knife.
The blade is a fairly new design for Tony and we have posted one other knife like this that is ivory. Blade and spring steel is CPM-D2.
If Geode's knife is the "lean and curvy Charlize", then I would have to say this knife is the "big, beautiful, and nasty Anna Nicole". ;)
They do not get any better than that, Congrats to Tony, I hope it is going to Blade so I can have my number drawn and take it home.:)
PS: Pics ain't bad either.:D
Love the blade shape on the half skinner! Very eye appealing knife all the way around! :thumbup:
Does Tony use his 14 inch contact wheel to cut the swedges or?
Thanks for the quick reply! I also like seeing older examples of Tony's knives. Gives me some hope!
It would be nice to see a "vintage Bose" thread
Makes Me yelp with Pleasure
cmon let me gettup in that shield
ps KHAMP you snap a keen portrait sir
