It makes my heart sing every time I look at it. :)
No doubt about it. You're a lucky knife-nut Vince :D

I‘m totin’ a new custom fixed blade today from local knife maker Evan Miller (Hawk Wing Forge). It is 5 1/2 inches long and a joy to carry. White G10 handles and a 30 degree inclusive edge, fantastic little slicer.

That looks like an exceptional fixed blade, Tom! That looks like it would excel at just about any day-to-day chore.

I've been out of action since Sunday and gotten way behind on this thread. I had a minor outpatient procedure (think "frontal colonoscopy" with a camera and laser) yesterday to remove a 12 mm (think .47 cal. bullet) kidney stone (first and, hopefully, last). Today, I'm in pain management, so am a bit dopier than usual. I'll try to catch up on some complimentary comments on the recent fine postings soon. Today, this is about all I am totin' around the house: a Belknap Hardware barlow from 1968-1985.

I hope you recover quickly, Stuart! I've never had the pleasure of a kidney stone (knocking on wood) but I've had buddies who have and they say it's less than pleasant.

Looks nice Dylan :thumbsup:

Thank you, Jack! Great duo you are sporting today.


I'm usually not too crazy about such knives, but that is a beauty, Dwight!

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! :)

An exceptional photo of an incredible duo, Ron!


Went with this older Barlow today. It isn't the finest of knives but I really like it. It practically sings when you open and close the blades, some of the best walk and talk in my collection.
