    A little free time today let me finish this one up finally! The spey blade was wrecked from the factory.. when they tried to sharpen it they toasted the heat treat and the edges were absolutely butchered (most of the blade was discolored blue and gold!). The main blade had some pretty bad rap at the tip and the sheep's foot was super lazy. I just intended to remove the spey, swap it's spring for the one on the sheepsfoot and fix the rap, but the steel pins and nickel silver bolsters make these things a booger to take apart, so this one got the Micarta Shadow treatment. I think it's gonna be in my pocket for a little while ~ it came out pretty sweet!

    Tried my hand at a forced patina with apple cider vinegar. For my first time, I don’t think it turned out bad at all. Time to let it go natural from here.

    Couple of classics, @peanutsxx !!:cool::cool: (And if you stuck a green knife at the bottom, you'd have an ever-popular (with me, anyway ;)) "traffic light" composition! :thumbsup::D)

    @Ironbut , that Case sawcut Barlow is such an awesome old knife! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Another "teaser", Ron??? :confused:
    That pair could certainly raise any knife fan's spirits! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:


    :D Seems doubtful that it would be my glove. Did it look like the one behind my "Silver Bullet" Imperial?

    Congrats, Drew, on another fabulous knife for your collection! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I enjoy seeing that unusual stag Forum knife, @Mykel!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Three fine knives, FBC!!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup::cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Congrats, @Falling_rain , it certainly looks regal! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the additional info and photo, Jer! That looks like it's in excellent condition! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Wow, wonderful Case whittler, @Travman !! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I forgot to include any of this week's knives for me in my post yesterday (although I doubt if there was much room available). Here are some of my "recent arrivals" I've been carrying this week while I work on the new, improved edition of my rotation schedule. I'm gonna take my cue from Elvis, who sang something like, "You'll be doing all right with your Christmas of white, but I'll have a canoe, canoe, canoe, canoe Christmas!"
    Rough Rider tobacco bone:

    RR tobacco bone canittler:

    RR "bolster stripes" model with "peach seed" jigging:

    Winchester canoes in yellow synthetic and in "buckstag":

    This stag AG Russell Mohawk canoe wasn't a Christmas gift, but I picked it up not so long ago:
