well for a while anyway.

Been too busy to do any posting on this or any other forum. Hope you fine folks are doing well.

I was using my Case Crandall Green Bone Peanut and a pair of pruning shears to do some landscape maintenance in my yard yesterday morning. The Peanut works great on twine and nylon trimmer line and the shears whack the bushes back into submission. Both were riding around alternately in my front pocket as I was doing the work. At the end of my trimming session I hung the shears on the tool hook in the garage and proceeded to pull out the hedge trimmer and give it some use. several hours later I reached for the peanut to cut some twine and it was missing from my front pocket. Aaaaaaaaaargh! NOT MY FAVORITE PEANUT! I searched everywhere for hours and came up empty. I felt absolutely horrible, but decided to just let it go.

This morning I noticed a few long rose stems that were missed, so I reached for the pruning shears. Here's what I found hanging on the hook. Made my day.:D

Whew! Glad you found it.

Now that's a multi-tool!
Yeah, nice shade of green too!
Add a compass, whistle, and fire-steel and I betcha you could get $300 for the Ultimate Extreme Bush Tool.

It's a really nice knife in those Crandall scales,but it is kind of camouflage in colour...best use yellow handle next time!

Thought I'd lost my Small Texas Jack yesterday, but it had slipped out of shallow pockets and down the side of the car seat,hell of a MESS under that seat too......

Finding a lost knife is more fun than seeing UPS deliver a new one. :thumbup:

I certainly do appreciate my Peanut more now after almost losing it. I started carrying it in the pocket clip sheath again after that close call. I've always been a little paranoid about losing a pocket knife that's rolling around loose in my pocket.

Nice having it back in service!

Thanks for the offer. I'll let you know if it ever goes missing permanently.

How's the Candystripe Boker holding up?
