    Thanks. I was happy to hear it.
    Funny the double-think I have about ages: Woh, 60 years is pretty old!/Wait a minute, I'm only 61.

    [As for Elmo vs Eberle, I give up]
    Edited to add:
    I finally saw one that says (Abromo) Eberle on it, and has the twisted bugle.
    And one that says Elmo on it and has a helmet device on it.
    So I I think that settles it. I do have three Brazillians and one Argentine.

    I have seven of them now. All are Brazillian Eberles (twisted bugle mark), except the short, broad, Argentinian Ju-ca of Tandil, the black wrapped one with no marks, and the home-made one with wood handles and leather sheath. I'm keeping an eye peeled for a Brazillian Elmo (helmet mark (duh, elmo is Portuguese for helmet)).
    Roughly in order of acquisition, except the wooden one belongs in the middle.

    The only one with a name is old Sweet Tooth, because it was made for a mechanical engineer on a sugar plantation in the 1960s.

    These are the same maker and almost the same size, but my first one with no tourist motifs is noticeably slimmer. (5.5" blades.)

    The plain-bladed one is my latest. 7" blades on these.

    The gaucha-bladed one has this string around the shank of the belt tab. Someone tied the sheath to a belt, or the knife in the sheath? Maybe a real Gaucho, maybe a mall ninja.

    I have been eyeballin' this one for quite a while now, just never pull the trigger on it, maybe I'll grab one, you only live once. It looks like it would do well in a pinch in the kitchen.
