    We have a lot of readers on the Porch and I enjoy the book-and-blade photos that folks post. Sometimes I learn about a new knife; sometimes I learn about a new book; sometimes I get a chuckle from a clever pairing. No matter what, they're fun to see.

    I was surprised when I realized I hadn't seen a thread dedicated to photos of books and knives. I searched and couldn't find one. How about we rectify that? I invite you to share your pictures of your traditional knives paired with books that you've enjoyed or otherwise find interesting or intriguing.
