Thanks!!! JohnDF I got it in a bundle of old scout knives on the bay for really cheap, was lucky at how good the condition wasooooh... Yours is in really good condition... Very nice!
Too late, I saw it.
I've looked at them on auction several times, but they either went for too much $$$ or were in terrible condition.
I really like the cowboy novelty knives.
They remind me of better times and all the fun I had when I was younger.
How did I not know about this??? So cool.
You've been busy with your forum knife Paul! Great picsForum knife at sunset
Quality quartet Gary, it's cool you still have your first pocket knifeEach week I carry an Alox SAK and a non-Alox SAK as part of my weekly rotation schedule. This week they happen to be virtually identical except for cover material. Vic Secretary and Pocket Pal:

I'd buy a chestnut jigged bone CV Barlow, too!My son and I are going to a Car/Bike show today. So my yeller delrin case cv Barlow gets the nod. Man, I wish they’d make this knife exactly the same except for their jigged chestnut bone cover material. They would undoubtedly make a lot of them, And that, would be super duper! I’d buy at least a couple!
Diverse Duo: dark and light, big and small, 1 blade and 2, lambsfoot and clip point, English and American, wood and bone, barehead and endcap, no shield and shield. The diversity boggles the mind!!
Looks like you did great work, Todd!Thanks Bruce. I actually filed the pins down a little and the liners were a bit proud of the covers, so I sanded those off too. That took some of the color off the covers doing that so I kept going all the way around and then buffed them off. I really like the way they turned out. I didn’t know all I had to do was put it in my pocket and hang some drywall!
Hey, now! Those are All-Stars, Steve!Queen Jack and a Kutmaster Stockman
Yeah, I'm sure my use of "mellow yellow" had significant Donovanian influence!Thank you very much, Gary!!! That reminds me of a 60s Donovan song.
Thanks, Alan, although that sounds like a pretty low bar!Thanks Gary. From my first day here, my aim was to get quoted by you.
Thanks for the celebratory info, ED!Two eggs up, hash brown potatoes, and hash.
Classy Case canoe!Canoeing whilst flipping between football, baseball and golf.
Oh and there’s beer involved.
Definitely a very special knife, John! I can see why you put it on a pedestal (or at least a post )...
It belonged to Ron, then gifted to Harry, and then gifted to me... which makes it special beyond words.
Thanks for the follow-up, Rachel. I hadn't made the Stanley connection.It's just decorative. Imperial made a number of patterns in black plastic, some with the yellow rectangle and some without. I used to think they had some marketing connection to Stanley Tools, but your question had me do a quick google search, and I can't find anything to verify that.
Jeff, if I subtracted correctly, your Gibson was made in 1955, and my uncle didn't graduate from high school until 1958 and then did a hitch in the army (2 years?) before he worked at Gibson, so I'm sure he had nothing to do with your guitar.
Great to see you here again, Vince; love the baseball Tinker!...
That's a Victorinox Tinker. With a CAO cigar and some Johnnie Walker Black on the rocks. Great way to end the day.
I need to get a family photo of my Rough Rider Outdoorsman/tobacco bone knives.So glad you’re enjoying them Gary.
You certainly have many knives with beautiful wood handles!!...
Good sunday to everyone
I always admire your "whale", José!
Grand pair of Barlows, Jack! Are those apples behind you HHB? They remind me of the fruit we get on a quince bush....
Thanks Gary Mammoth multi-quote!
I agree Gary, the darker bone is definitely more attractive in my opinion Well done Todd
Hope we'll see you over there soon buddy!
Have a relaxing and peaceful Sunday folks
Who made your Spanish knife and in what city did you buy it?I have been totin all these this morning along with my always in the pocket alox SAK.
I finished off the handle on the black one,can you see the join?
smoothed of and oiled the handle on my Spanish knife that I got on my road trip this year,It’s basic but very nice snap and good to use.
Then I thought I may as well put another few coats on my trapper,which I must add has quickly become a favourite.
How do you carry your hobo knife? I recently got a Ka-Bar version that carries well in a pocket of my winter coat, but that's not what I typically wear to summer picnics.The big one is a Methodist church knife.
Will, that Waynorth lambsfoot is outstanding, and the whittler is also an impressive knife!After some days of heavy rain & strong winds, the sun is out today-wind still raging though. But it's better than all the dark & then snow that will soon be here from Nov-March or later
Versatile duo then for the day.
That old knife is a treasure!
Thanks for your informative and engaging replies, Jack. I like those summer sausage "logs". I occasionally will use it for sandwiches, but I use it much more often as an ingredient in other meals. I'll typically cut off and dice 4 thin slices 2 or 3 times per week to put in my breakfast oatmeal or a supper vegetable casserole/stew.That's one heck of a sausage Gary! Thank you for the kind words, my Navy Knife was a gift from Mr paulhilborn
Thank you my friend
I've put it away for her birthday next month She has been asking me for a knife for a while, as I have given her older brother a few. I asked her if she'd like a SAK. She thought about it briefly, then said, "No, just a pocket knife please." I got her the version with daisies
Thanks again buddy, they were probably more than I needed as it turned out LOL! You're welcome to it my friend!
That pocket worn Cadet is incredible!!The English carry,I took my Victorinox cadet into town.
visited a few antique shops nada of interest,lots of people milling around town.
Johnny hates jazz,but loves the blues.
I enjoy your frequent Double Lambsfoot Days, JJ!I enjoying a Double Lambsfoot Day for my Sheffield Sunday.
