    Gev, I love that Barlow. Blades well worn like that truly intrigue me...the life it led, the person it served for years:cool:

    Nice Rachel, Mark makes such a great "working" knife...a great knife period but I tell him they just beg to work. His carbon is so good. I keep my fixed from Mark in a sheath mounted to our bedding rack in our warehouse. It cuts everything I throw at it:thumbup:

    Well said Gev, Mark is a great forum member and a great friend to so many:thumbup:

    Nice Steve:thumbup:

    It started life as a standard Queen 6L amber bone, but I got some really good ebony and had the scales replaced (as well as the liner lock removed).

    Thanks, Gary. :) You're right on all counts! :thumbup:

    Congrats on the fancy-bolstered Schrade, Harry! :cool:
    Very nice of you, Dave! :thumbup: I really like that idea of trying to do what we can to get knives where they belong!

    Thanks, Alan. :) I always look forward to the photos everyone posts, because they make me feel good! ;)

    Standout sowbelly, Frank! :thumbup:

    Thanks, Dee. You keep posting inspirational knives, and I'll keep smithing some words! :D

    Handsome, well-made sheath you put together, H&S! :thumbup:

    Thanks, Dean. The Kudu is huge: I measure 5.75" closed, 4.25" blade. But it is incredibly light with the plastic/fiberglass synthetic handle. I've been carrying it in my RFP for the past 3 days and haven't even noticed it. I really want to get an Okapi, but didn't have the patience to wait/look for one :rolleyes:, so I ordered the Kudu as a modern-day substitute for an old "3 star" Okapi.

    Quite the quality quintet, MJ71!! :thumbup:

    Thanks, Steve. :) Your phenomenal photo turned me green with envy! :p

    Your ebony 74 is certainly dignified, Barrett, and that Colonial "church key" is a treasure! :cool:

    You're welcome, Gev, and same to you. ;) The key for me is getting the proper mix of ingredients: I get nervous with TOO much bewilderment in my life! :eek:

    Thanks for the informative replies, FBC. :) That black box whittler is a gem, too! :thumbup:

    Thanks, Jack. I need to stop pinching myself to see if your GAW is just a dream, and get myself signed up for a chance at a legendary luminous lambsfoot oxhorn! :thumbup:

    Travman, your Case canoe is outstanding; I'd love to hear some details about it and how you found it if you have time. :cool::thumbup:

    That's a venerable, vibrant, vintage Barlow, Gev! Congratulations! :thumbup:

    Thanks for the info about a couple of your fine knives, Greg. :cool: And thanks for the Klaas compliment. :)

    That 72 stag is smashing, Steve! :thumbup:

    Hardly seems fair that you're fortunate enough to own that premium pen knife AND it appears to be working its magic for a red team, Ron! :eek:;)

    That's the Christmas peanut from your kids, right, Mike? VERY cool! :cool:

    That's a gorgeous New Day, Nature Boy!! :thumbup:

    Handling most of the kitchen duties for the past week were a Douk-Douk and a Chinese Laguiole. (I'm starting to think the latter is the best 7 euros I ever spent on a knife.)

    Thanks k5 .
    I may be the only person who edc's one of these Imperial H6's, but I just love it.
    It takes a great edge, it's blade is real thin and slicy, and it's not too big plus it's nice and lightweight.

    Thanks, I thought it turned out pretty good for an hour's worth of work and glue drying time.
    It's a fairly thin sheath, but I thought it was appropriate for a knife of this size and thickness. Especially since I wanted to keep the whole package lightweight .
