    I’m pairing these two again today. It’s hard to go wrong with Ironwood or Red Sawcut Bone! ;) They are two of my favorites! :)

    Haven't had this one out for a while, it's surprisingly light and extremely well finished :cool:

    Day behind here. This was yesterdays carry, #72 African Blackwood lockback and an orange bone RR small stockman.
    Coffee time at the moment, not yet sure what will leave the house with me when I head out today. 72 LB & RR stockman #2 - 1.jpg

    Nice to see Pearl stepping out with a fine English gentleman.

    Another fantastic water picture, Dwight.

    I love the diamond shield on your trapper.

    That is so true. I think I'll take it on my next camping trip, it should make a fantastic camp knife.

    Thanks for reminding of that! It was one thing that caught my eye in the first place, but somehow had forgotten it!:oops:

    A Peanut with almost anything else makes a potent combination, especially a capable slicy longer blade.
    I suppose I should include mine in my daily photos, because it’s always there no matter what else I’m totin.

    I'm mixing things up a bit today. The Camillus is still with me, but I swapped out the Case mini-trapper for a punch stockman in yellow Delrin. I vacillate between these two patterns, as to which I love most.

    And for show and tell, I have a Case burnt amber bone Backpocket knife, with 154-CM blade. The covers were originally a bit light in color for my taste, looking almost like oatmeal. So I eventually dyed them a bit deeper, and I'm very happy with how they came out. Overall, the Backpocket is a wonderful knife. Nice and slim, and not too heavy for its size. The big clip blade is beautifully styled, and cuts like nobody's business. Nice jigging on the covers.

    If I had to pick a weakness in this model, I'd say it was the half stop. The pull is so strong and there's so much travel in the blade as it springs to the half stop position, the nail nick tends to rip right through your finger nail. I'd really prefer that this knife didn't have a half stop at all. But it's a minor quibble. I own quite a few Backpockets, so they couldn't be all that bad.

    Thanks! I've sent it to him, and I think he has used it.

    Not only is the edge sharp on that knife, but the tip is like a needle: I used it to open a case of water bottles that was shrink-wrapped, and I accidentally pierced a bottle; wasn't even using much force. Water started gushing out because the shrink wrap was pressing the bottles tightly together! I just gotta be careful. ;)
