    3 classic crimson crusaders, José!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Australia? Wow! ;):thumbsup:
    I see you have another VERY attractive brown jigged bone simple single-blade knife to console you!! :thumbsup::cool::)

    Thanks for the ID, Dwight; very cool and stylistically so similar to the Good Roads knife! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    You won't get much argument from me, other than a suggestion to not limit yourself to Case sowbellies - the pattern is lovable from many makers. ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Ron and Dean. :) RR smooth tobacco bone is hard to beat when it's that rich brown, but sometimes it comes with a much more yellow hue that I don't care much for.

    Sounds like a good plan for your trio of lambsfoots, Vince! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for some additional info about your rosewood lambsfoot. :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Glad you liked it. :)

    Two nice pics, Jack. :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I especially like the sun, water, and stag in the second shot.

    I hope your recovery is fast and full, Harry. :):thumbsup:

    Hey! The famous tree limb is back in a gorgeous shot! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    Classic charmer, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks, Tom, and good luck! ;):thumbsup::cool:

    You've already addressed this, but upon seeing it initially, I contemplated many numbered collaborators for Kenny Rogers that could be mixed and matched: First Edition, Second Helping, Third Wheel, Fourth Estate, Fifth Dimension, Sixth Sense, Seventh Heaven, etc.

    That IS an impressive assortment! :cool::cool::thumbsup: What's that bluish knife (lockback?) next to the Case Trapper?

    My Plain Canoe of the Week is a Rough Rider with gunstock checkered covers (thanks, Will):

    My Fancy Canoe this week is a Buck stag canoe:

    My Stockman this week is a Case humpback stockman in harvest orange bone (thanks, Mike):

    This was in the mail waiting for me when I got home so I dropped it in my pocket. Dang near need suspenders because it’s hefty for a pocket knife, but all the springs are good and strong.

    I wasn't quite awake this morning and thought I had grabbed something else. A Schrade-Walden minor reclamation knife.... I think it will be in my pocket again tomorrow.

    I must compliment you on the leatherwork!

    Let’s all blame Paul!:D
    Yep, that farmer’s jack pattern grows on you, doesn’t it?

    This old jack earned another totin today.
    I used it hard yesterday. Fed up to here and back with fighting the creeping charlie and other weeds in my garden, I decided to lay down fabric weed barrier in a couple of sections. We’ll see how that works.
    I had 16 broccoli and cauliflower plants to set out, and just cut an X through the fabric for each one. Used the old Eagle jack, and as you can imagine, stabbing through landscape fabric into the soil was rough on the edge. Since I had to clean and resharpen it today, and in appreciation for performing well yesterday, it’s with me again.
    Also, the Craftsman folding hunter is in my pocket because I hope to make a sheath for it. 842D4292-256B-480E-95E9-FE372A853538.jpeg 5A4F42E0-543F-4A83-A96A-2F9284376789.jpeg
