    Yes, bone stag. It had me fooled when I opened it up, I thought it was stag at first.

    My chestnut CV peanut arrived a few days ago. It arrived with much better edges out of the box than my yeller SS. How do I upload a photo to the forum from my computer?

    You should see a blue "Upload a File" button at the lower right side of your text entry box...when you post. Once you click that it will give you a few options to upload the file you want...either by dragging and dropping or selecting the location of the file. Once you have the file uploaded you should see it at the bottom of the text entry box and have an option to insert a thumbnail (small) version or full size. Click in the text where you want the photo then select one of those two options.
    Hope this helps.

    I only see blue boxes that say "Post Reply" and "More Options".

    I think you have to be a paying member to get the Upload a File option.

    There we go! My newly-sharpened Yeller SS and Chestnut CV, and my old, worn-down Blue SS. I used abused Blue as a hobby knife/glue scraper for building model airplanes.

    Hey all,

    New here. I've been following for awhile now just haven't posted anything yet. I'm currently up to 5 peanuts now (thanks alot lol) I have a chestnut cv, yellow cv, whiskey bone cv, dark red ss, and a harvest orange ss. Once the rain stops (if ever) I'll get a pic of all of them together :D

    I already posted this picture in the Beverages and Blades thread, but what goes together better than beer and peanuts? :)

    And a cheapskate member like me probably has a limit on how much he can directly upload.

    It seems like if the photo is under 1 MB, I can upload it, but larger ones fail. I don't know if that's due to being a basic member or if it applies to everyone.

    I finally had to post my picture to imgur and then paste the link here. Fortunately, imgur automatically provides a link in the correct format to make it show up as an image on forums.

    As a side note, I've decided that the squared-off "Case USA" shield on my blue bone peanut is the ugliest logo/shield I've ever seen on a knife. It looks like someone took a big sign from a 1950's-theme diner, shrunk it, and slapped it on my knife.

    The chestnut bone shield looks very nice I'd say.

    I don't even know how many megapixies are in a bushel.

    Oh, I don't know. Looks good to me.

    My only Case peanut, though I have a couple peanutoids:

    I guess I just find the blocky shape to be out of place on a knife that is mostly curves.

    That’s a nice peanut right there. I like how wide the clip blade is and that swedge looks great.

    Thank you. I agree; I like the oval shields in general, and the one with the Case flourish logo (there’s probably a more correct term for it) in particular, although it’s more difficult to read at that size.

    It’s not just ugly, but the Case logo is so small that it is difficult to distinguish from the Same-shaped shield used by Rough Rider. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
