    That's lovely, I didn't realise they made a smaller model. Could you pm me with where you bought it?

    I haven't carried this one in a while, it was my first four blade congress and the first thing I ever bought on the exchange. It's quite a work horse and I love the deep canyon jigged bone.

    I have quite a few congress knives now and something struck me for the first time the other day; boker, henkles, hen and rooster, moore maker, rough rider and such all have their blades in the arrangement above. As in, I hold the covers in your right hand and open the main (which is behind the secondary) with your left thumbnail - however, GEC is the only maker which does this in reverse. Isn't that odd?

    I would never have known that's what those were!

    Beautiful photo. The way you've highlighted the lovely green in the cover makes this knife look like it's in its natural habitat. :) :thumbup:

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forums and new to traditional knives as well. But for sure I've been bitten by the bug. In a recent buying frenzy I picked up this little guy. A #25 clip point in cocobolo. Originally I was going to let it sit in the tube, but I'm definitely more of a user than a collector, and it's just too pretty to let it sit.

    Welcome to the Porch fuzzylogic, that is a fine 25!


    My Primble is still along for the ride, several days in a row now. Must be a record for me :).

    What a sublime knife and sheath, Kris!!! :thumbup: (And a super clean machine behind it.)

    Splendid pair, Ken! :cool: Your Grohmann series is superlative! :thumbup:

    Thanks, Jack. :) I don't always drink cola, but when I do, it's NEVER Pepsi! Stay thirsty, my friend. :eek:

    :D:D Thanks, Dean; it seems Klaasy to me, too.

    Thanks, Bob; looking for canoes keeps me off the streets, at least. ;)
    I might have a promising weather observation for you. Yesterday, I walked 3 miles to work in the morning, and although it was only 75 degrees, my shirt was soon soaked with sweat because the air was so humid. :grumpy: But when I left work just after 5pm and walked 20 minutes to the bus stop, it was at least 85 degrees but I didn't even break a sweat because the dew point had dropped significantly. :thumbup: Maybe that's headed your way (apparently only for a day or two, but it's welcome relief while it lasts).

    Thanks, Steve. :) The canoe is 3" closed, and this is one of the rare occasions where my photo actually looks better than the knife itself! :eek: I've been looking at those little Klaas canoes for ages, but wasn't sure of the quality, but as soon as someone here (and I've forgotten who :() posted a good review, I snapped one up. Very nice little knife! :thumbup:
    Your matched micartas look very satisfying; the lanyard on the Bull Nose is scintillating! :cool:

    :D:D I'm not a gun guy at all, but that seems like a significant observation, Mike. :thumbup: It also made me laugh out loud, earning dirty looks from both wife and daughter! :rolleyes:

    Vaporstang, it's sensational to Cu! :rolleyes::p


    Supreme shots yourself, Paul!! :cool:

    That is a suave, stylish Chambriard, lambertiana! :thumbup:

    Striking stockman, FBC!! :thumbup:

    That's a seductive pair of 14s, TheFactor! :cool: Glad to see you bring out the smooth camel bone, but I fully understand how the jigged antique yellow bone has established superiority! ;)

    That's a seriously salutary selection, Jack! :thumbup: Did that knife have any influence on your acquisition of the A. Wright buffalo lambsfoot that's taken up nearly permanent residence in your pockets recently?? ;)

    That's a stately Böker congress, Paul! :cool: I'm not sure what you think is "odd", that GEC does it "in reverse" or that all the others do it the way they do; do you prefer one way over the other? FWIW, I open all my knives, if possible, in the manner you describe for all of the makers except GEC. But I once asked how people opened their knives, and was astounded by the variety! :eek: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1245274-How-Many-Ways-Do-You-Open-a-Slipjoint

    Stellar stockman, GA! :cool:
