    Seeing the upcoming Burlap GEC 74s reminded me of this Old Friend.
    Unfortunately he hasn't been out much in the last couple of years. That ends today!

    A few days ago I was handling a knife and thought, "Here's an old friend for Friday". I can't remember which one it was.
    This Boker USA has been around a while though. Somebody else replaced the shield on this one, I would guess with a thumb-tack head rather than my trademark roofing nail head.

    Here is my old Queen Copperhead. I filed off the bump making it a copperhead pattern but it works much better for me. I have had this knife for close to 20 years making it an old friend indeed.

    Taylor Schrade 108OT my daughter gave me about five years ago to replace my worn out US 108OT. Haven’t carried it lately so I thought I’d give it some exercise on Old Friends Friday.

    I don’t remember if this Boker Barlow was my first or if it was the case large stockman, when I got interested on traditional American and English patterns, but anyway it’s an old friend

    Great Old Friends guys :) :thumbsup:

    This #15 Boy's Knife, from GEC's first run, was a gift from a former member here, and a valued Old Friend I've not carried in a while :) :thumbsup:

    At 3 1/4 inches with tip bolsters, a long pull and caplifter this Camco has personality plus and I'm proud to be carrying this sharp Old Friend today.

    My Old Friend today is my Todd Davison Sheepsfoot, a beautifully made knife, very generously commissioned and gifted to me by Stephen @Old & In The Way :) It's always a treat to carry :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black - Good morning Jack. That is a very nice Davison Sheepfoot! :thumbsup::thumbsup: Your Random carry last Tuesday got me thinking about this Camco and it's been with me since. Solid knife with long pull spear and tip bolsters. The secondary is a screwdriver/caplifter I used last night opening pistachios. Really a good old friend. :)

    Thanks Jack. Mostly I just point and shoot and sometimes I get lucky. :)

    I do! I seem to carry the same ones over and over and have a "stash" that I don't get to very often. Getting one of those out is fun for me and this thread reminds me to do that at least once a week. :)

    Have a great weekend my friends!

    This is one of the first knives I purchased shortly after I decided that knives were now my hobby and passion, still one of the coolest looking knives I have and will get pocket time today :)
