    I have owned a lot of TCs and only have a 1/2 dozen left. But out of all of them this Brazilian Rosewood single spear (152114STL) is I think my favorite! Only seven produced. Lloyd

    PS: I also agree--would to see a photo of Paul H. TC collection:thumbup:

    My TC sitting on a white fence, looks like it could use a fresh coat of paint ;)

    Thank you for requesting pictures everyone, as of late they were just haphazardly spread throughout the house and you inspired me to gather them up and place in one central location.

    The TC's are my passion along with vintage pruners and although I can't persue them all I try to get a release from every year. I have MANY friends to thank for helping me to amass my collection. Several are gifts, several are others parting with their beloved TC's and others giving me a heads up when and where they are available:thumbup:

    Thanks to all of you for helping me in my efforts:cool::thumbup:

    Thanks to so many here: Charlie, Duncan, Barry (Gunstock) Perry (Singin 50) Ron and so many other:thumbup:

    Although this Gunstock Walnut Spear is not in the group shot I had to add this to the post. A very, very SPECIAL TC for me.
