    I'm working in the backyard today with my Workhorse today. This guy is doing an excellent job of opening bags of mulch.

    Many great knives posted. Every day is a new set of beauty!

    Red claimed my pocket once again (while I wait for an ebony one to come)

    Thanks! The IXL is a single spear blade barlow:



    The deal-sealing back-tang stamp:



    Spear blades aren't my favorite (clip blades are), but that hasn't prevented this knife from quickly becoming a favorite-- the latest in an estimable line of preference-busters!

    ... As for my carry today, the image quoted remains my go-to, all of it, unpocketed at the end of each day (into that leather bowl/butler), repocketed before each new day's adventures.

    I'm not surprised, you've got the winds of two counties blowing at you there! :eek: That looks like a warmer spot - if not a drier one! ;) :D :thumbup:

    Thanks a lot Paul :thumbup:

    Stunning :thumbup:

    My very first GEC - where it all began in June 2013. The #55 in Autumn Gold jigged bone. I've not carried it in awhile but the past couple weeks it's now reminded me why I like it so much.

    Thanks buddy :)

    Thank you Greg :) That's a great 33 :thumbup:

    That is truly a Workhorse! They are beautiful knives and built like a tank. :thumbup:

    TGIF! Home from work now so I have downsized to this SBJ for the remainder of the evening. :D

    Thanks, Jack! The bottom knife is gorgeous and its always nice to see Abbeydale!

    Great shot, Donn! Looks like the Bwlch is South Wales? What I would give to slope glide there !

    Well done Gary ! We must never forget

    Thanks for the kind words about my Zamorano I displayed (much) earlier this week, Gev. :)

    Fine knife, Dean! :cool: I also like the little LOTR replica (reminds me of the Supremes' song "Stop! In the Name of Love"). ;)

    Fabulous portraits of your Forum knife, Erik! :thumbup::thumbup:

    Congrats on your two different pairs of superb stag siblings, Jack!! :cool::thumbup:

    Ron and Greg, your Wright Lambsfoot knives are both showstoppers!! Ron, your deep black covers are quintessential ebony to me! :thumbup: Greg, even after seeing many pics of yours in different conditions, I hadn't realized until now what a variety of dark tints swirl through the covers on yours! :cool:

    That sun-drenched I*XL looks grand, Dean! :thumbup:

    Congrats on the Pal camp knife, Harry! :thumbup: With that new find and your newly-won Camillus and your Ulster scout (which I didn't remember seeing before), you're becoming quite a Scoutmaster!! :cool:

    That's a monumental Ulster EE Jack, Paul!! :eek::thumbup:

    Vivacious pair, Alan; primo stag on your 25!!! :thumbup:

    Haven't posted here since Tuesday, I think, but I only have a few of this week's carries that I didn't post early in the week.
    Tucked in a whittling thumbguard/pocket slip under my keys are a Taylor-Schrade 44OT Workmate and my scrimshaw stockman (thanks, r8shell):


    In the little mesh case that holds my bus discount card is a Rough Rider baby copperhead:

    As ever, I have my Case chestnut jigged bone CV SBJr (thanks, Bob):

Trying to get up to Alaska and stop being a slave for business' that don't appreciate so will start my own making knives and amulets. Hope everyone has been doing well this past 2016. *fade to black*
