    I skipped the chapters on zany Michigan characters and extraordinary roadside advertisements.

    I don't have a spanish navaja so I just paired my daily knife with my favorite novel.

    Is that print on the jacket by somebody famous and Spanish?
    Picasso! I thought so, but didn't want to embarrass myself by guessing wrong.

    That one came from an antique mall, where I also got one of those old tiny "Golden Books" of American Indian crafts. Pretty good section on flint-knapping.
    Do you get the Daedalus book catalogues? You can order online, but the catalogues are cheaper. I got some good and plausible books on ancient mysteries from them.

    Fodderwing, is that a folder or a fixed blade? I really like the looks of it!

    Thank you. It is a small fixed blade made by our own @Horsewright (Dave Ferry) and it's called a "Tapadero". Dave is a master knife maker and leather craftsman.

    That was a thing?
    Can you imagine how many volumes that would take today?
