    I love Climatis Vine too Harry. I totally agree with you and Ron on the Lick Creek. That is a gorgeous example you have. Sorry to hear about your hand.

    Thanks, Gary. I did get a beautiful rosewood specimen. But I have stellar stag and iridescent ironwood, too. I polished the AC blade with Flitz, and am going to try to keep the blades shiny on my stag and ironwood knives, but will use the rosewood freely on food, even, and let the patina form.

    Why, yes; yes there is. Blame Jack. He sent me this "working" knife, for which I'm grateful. It's not perfect, but I'm less picky than some, and have hundreds of "poor, cheap" knives. They teach me things...

    This one has been getting a lot of pocket time lately. It's a very good watch pocket knife, and fairly stiff, so I'm using it. My only complaint about the pattern is that I do occasionally miss the pen on my usual Jack or Congress.

    Hello Will,
    The handle is in dyed camel bone.
    It's a "knife by friends ". The damascus of the blade has been made by Gigi Sechi, the bolster by Davide Steri, the handle and even the screws by Roberto Serra. All these great friends of mine collaborated to produce this knife .

    Thank you very much Ron, you too my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot GT :) :thumbsup:

    That's one of the coolest coin knives I've seen Dwight :) When I was a kid at primary school, there was always a trip to a local cutlery firm, and all the boys would be given a coin knife (the girls got scissors). They were a very common pattern in Sheffield (and obviously elsewhere) at one time, but I think only Stan Shaw makes them there now :thumbsup:

    Nice Rosewood and Rosemary John :thumbsup:

    Nice to see that one my friend :) They do the same knife with an additional pen blade, but the pull is pretty breathtaking! :eek: :thumbsup:

    Morning folks, treating myself to a Double Lambsfoot Day today ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Jack. Did you manage to hang on to any of those knives the cutlery firm handed out when you were a child? Imagine a coin knife made by Mr Shaw! :eek: :cool: Wouldn't that be something! Great pair you have today! Lucy and AC.

    Could you even imagine what today's parents would say if their kids came back from a field trip with a knife. :eek:
    Most would be in shock, but I'd ask why they didn't get me one. :D

    At first, the farmer’s jack/ Orchard Gem looks funny. One end is skinny, one is fat, the blade curves the wrong way, and it sticks out a lot when it’s closed.
    Then some enabler hands you one, and says “check this out”.
    Then you get a hollow feeling in the pit of yer belly whenever somebody shows a photo of one.

    Yeah. Please let me know if and when they make some more!

    Sorry to hear you’re one handed!
    What happened, one of your knives bit you?
