    Hey @waverave can we see it in a size comparison pic? It looks great.
    @yuzefe don't worry mate although not a "peanut" in the strict sense of the word as relates to knives..yours does look strangely peanutty.

    Thanks :) A lack of bolsters really highlights the shape of a pattern :thumbsup:

    Thanks :) It is now! I think I must have went through 4-5 Peanuts trying to get one modified the way I wanted...so this one was a costly learning project. I didn't get the lanyard hole I was trying for but still pleased.

    Earlier I posted my tri-nut. I went and bought the entire set :eek: I never buy complete sets, so this is a new one for me. Given, its only three knives, but its complete :p

    I don’t know if I would use the trinut much but that’s a nice idea.

    I doubt I'll use it much, if at all, but the 3 blades don't come along that often. Think I'll keep an eye for a reasonably priced one of these :eek::rolleyes::p

    Been a while since I last carried a Peanut. This one, a kind gift from Stuart @Duckdog , has been making itself useful on my desk for the past month or so, but it's taking its maiden pocket voyage tomorrow ;) :thumbsup:

    Time to bump this thread! Last summer, I lost my favorite chestnut bone cv peanut - a sad day! Been looking for a replacement for some time, since new ones don't seem to be available. I just received this in the mail - an unsharpened (factory edge) like new 1965 - 1969 bone peanut. It's in fabulous shape! The action is great - smooth and snappy just like I like 'em. There's only one problem - is it too nice to use? Over 50 years old and still like new! Should it remain a safe queen or should I sharpen it up and drop it in my pocket?! I'm thinking that it's too nice NOT to carry and they look even better with patina. Am I crazy? And, by the way, I probably paid less for it than most new ones go for!

    I love the older peanuts stiffer pull and the old carbon steel just seems to get wicked sharp. If it was mine I'd carry it

    Thats good! It's always good to have multiple peanuts, they like the company. The mighty legumes are much like the piranha, they travel well in schools.:thumbsup:
    :D
