    It's pouring down rain today. Tornado warnings all around. Had to run pay off a bill and didn't think I'd get home before the bottom fell out. Barely made it.

    So, a relaxing day in the recliner. Guess the wood splitting will have to wait. The fightin rooster with me again. I'm really digging this stockman. Contrary to the pic, it's actually a dark dark geeen.

    I was on the second floor metal decking when the first lightning struck. That was a Code Brown moment. Made it back to the trailer complex before the bottom fell. Then, we all realized we were in, essentially, a trailer park in a wide open area with tornado sirens going off. Wind got up to about 40mph while hail pelted the cars but nothing worse than that, thankfully. Couple of guys had to shelter on the jobsite itself.

    I'm glad you didn't get stuck in it! Enjoy that recliner.

    That is a great photo and a great knife! I love the color of the bone. :thumbup:

    Gorgeous bone on that Barlow, Gev!

    That is a good looking knife, Buzz, but your photography makes it look superb!

    Stunning, just stunning!!

    The Matt Bailey is fantastically original, Paul! It really grabs the eye.


    This useful TC is in my pocket today.

    Thanks, Jack. :) Another lovely couple of knives you have today. That buffalo horn lambsfoot reminds me of an old Stephen Foster song:
    I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair
    Borne, like a vapor, on the summer air


    You're welcome, guys. I enjoy seeing people enjoying their knives! ;)

    Great photo, Erik. And the equal-end symmetry of those Fremonts is certainly appealing! :thumbup:

    I admire your ability to see everything in terms of black and white, Rachel! :D

    Pocketful of dreams! Looking good, Buzz. :cool:

    I really like my carbon Black Cat, but that otter eating the fish is a real seeing point to me on the copper and brass versions! Look forward to your review, Zieg. :thumbup:

    Fantastic jigged bone handles on that one, Gev! :cool: Belated birthday greetings as well. :eek:

    Enchanting pair of vintage knives, Harry! I especially like that equal-end cattle knife with the acorn shield! :thumbup:

    That's a scintillating sowbelly stockman, perchjerk; nice!! :thumbup:

    Congrats on that recent purchase, TheFactor; must have you feelin' groovy!

    My daughter has lived in Spain for almost 6 years, and I've developed a definite affinity for Spanish folders. Don't have a Salamandra yet. What are the covers on your handsome knife?

    Those are a couple of remarkable knives, Jack! :thumbup: It sounds like you'd have benefitted from having a lock pick on the IXL today. :D Glad you got into your home eventually.

    A.L., that Alox Minichamp looks ravishing! :cool: I carry a red celidor Minichamp every day, and often think about getting an Alox model, but I'm not sure I could give up the pen in the covers of mine.

    Speaking of dynamite pairs, Alan, that black and yellow combo is explosive! :cool:

    Very distinguished, tasteful, and tasty, Chui! :thumbup:

    Your Barlow today exemplifies Textured Color, Dean! :thumbup: (How do you like your little Fenix?)


    Stockman of the Week for me is a yellow Kutmaster with pen instead of sheepsfoot (thanks, Mike). One of my few yellow knives.

    Hello Folks!

    I haven't posted in a few weeks. I came down with an illness that seemed to be pretty serious. However, my latest blood work indicates everything has come back to normal.
    Big relief!

    There are too many pages of pictures to comment on but needless to say well done everyone!

    I carried these two today.

    Have a great day all!

    The #85 and #38 make an excellent duo. Sadly I'll have to let them go to make room for the upcoming #13 knives though. I am very excited for those.

    Beautiful knives all around!

    LOL! Thanks GT, I haven't heard that song in years, my grandmother used to sing it! :D :) :thumbup: You may be interested to know that the object behind my Abbeydale is a crucible steel 'bonnet' ;)

    Yes, I could have done with MacGyver to help me out! :D :thumbup:

    Nice matching pair my friend :thumbup:

    Early start for me tomorrow, and a long day, but I'll have this trusty Lambsfoot with me :) :thumbup:
