How do you say Black Jack in French??
Litterally Jacques (le) Noir , in cards is valet de pique, but "Jack" for "knife" does not translate -no difference where the blades sit-, casino game is the same.
So, the V on J-M's playing cards stands for valet de pique?
And the D stands for the queen? The king must be R?
Yes Charlie, V stands for Valet, D for Dame, R for Roi.
To those of you who have regularly posted in this thread, let me first offer my apologies for possibly blowing up your alerts over the last 15-20 minutes. I apparently missed this thread entirely over the past few months, and I just scrolled through the whole thing, gawking at all the wonderful photos of fantastic knives, and carpet-bombing the whole thread with Likes.
(I tried not to “Like” everything, but I was tough!)
Holy Punch, Batman!
I knew you had quite a collection of HJ’s, Duncan, but [insert expletive of your choice here]! (And that’s just the GEC’s/Waynorth SFO's!)
The punch on those things was/is crazy sharp!
One word, Paul: WOW!!
I'll add some photos of my CC SFO's. (I don't have nearly as many as some of you "big guns," but it's probably more than I would have guessed; going through this thread reminded me of some that didn't immediately come to mind!)
Thanks Barrett, I have been blessed to collect the ones I have. In April I get to see the collection of a man that may quite possibly have every CC knife offered
take lots of pictures!!!
#15 Ancient TC Barlow in Scratted Parchment Bone
This was, believe it or not, my very first GEC knife. Some dummy (that'd be me) decided to sell it a few years back, and has regretted it ever since.
#77 Washington Punch Knife, HJ#8
This was another early acquisition for me (I didn't discover GEC until 2015); thankfully I had enough sense to hold on to this one!
Northfield #15 Rope Knives
#14 TC Lick Creek Barlows (spear point, 2016)
2016 BladeForums #35 Drover
(I wasn't sure if it counted as a CC SFO, but I've seen others post it here, and of course we wouldn't have it without Charlie working w/ GEC on behalf of the Porch.)
2016 TC Barlow, single clip point in Chestnut Peachseed Jigged Bone
"A Barlow in Every Pocket!"
Another forum knife courtesy of Charlie, the 2017 TC Barlow in *gasp!* Micarta?!
2018 Ancient TC Barlow
#14 TC Barlows (clip point, 2018)
A pair of Northfields #15 Harness Jacks (HJ#7)
2012 PPP TC Barlow, courtesy of @Campbellclanman.
Now that knife has done some travelling! From Titusville to New Zealand (probably by way of North Dakota), New Zealand to Sheffield with Duncan, then back to New Zealand (probably had some other travels in there as well?), got lost in a jacket pocket for a few years, only to be found, generously gifted in a fantastic GAW (still can't believe I won that!!) and sent on its way to Minnesota, then travelled with me from Minnesota back to Sheffield again. Possibly the highest-mileage CC SFO out there??
Here it is on it's return visit to The Fat Cat pub in Sheffield.
And at West Bay, Dorset, England.
Bail & Chain #15 Boy's Knife
(Charlie, you'll have to forgive me for replacing the traditional chain with something decidedly less traditional!)
And last but not least (and hopefully not "last" for too long!), the Waynorth #93 Lambfoot.
Best tang stamp ever!
Thanks for the reminder, Charlie, and for all the work you've put into all these excellent knives!
IMPRESSIVE yourself there Barrett
Like your knives, like your comments, glad you found your way over to this thread!
So so cool !!!
Love the love.
Barrett, same happened to me, I just discovered this thread yesterday evening late. How could this happen? So many nice pictures to stare at!
Like Paul said, "Very impressive"!!!
Thanks, guys! Like you said, Paul, I feel very fortunate to have them.
Dark in the house this morning.
