    Sadly, I can relate to this. When I was in 4th grade in the late-1960’s, I remember Mrs. Hodges asking us boys on the first day of school if we had a pocket knife with us. Not knowing where she was headed, I sheepishly raised my hand. Her exact reply - after ~50 years - ‘Good, every young man should always carry a pocket knife!’ Still my favorite teacher and I’ve carried a knife almost every day since. Nowadays, a kid gets suspended.

    A kid was in the news a few years ago for getting suspended for bringing aspirin to school. Zero Tolerance! An example like that might be expected to make people realize how close zero tolerance is to zero intelligence. But no. And there was the kid who got in trouble for "inappropriate behavior at home" because the camera on his school-issued laptop saw him taking a pill in his bedroom.

    Keep on rockin' in the free world.

    I *wish* Victorinox offered these with sheaths, but fortunately a gifted forum member has the skills required to make them.

    I had tried coffee before but it didn't get dark enough, so I did a rit dye job. I still had dye in the container from the RR scout and cotton sampler,however the trapper required it to be deeper as it didn't lie flat on the bottom. I'm using an dinty moore beef stew can. So after I added the water I added a bit more chocolate brown rit,and a tad of yellow. Being it already had orange as a base I hoped that would cause it to have a warm tone. I kept checking it and when it got to the shade I wanted I pulled it from the dye bath. I wiped the excess dye of ,then using a cloth rubbed the covers with brown kiwi shoe polish while it was still hot. That helped maintain a luster and hopefully sealed the bone some. Being gunstock checkered covers I wanted a black walnut gunstock color. I'll post a few pics probably in the RR thread tomorrow, to show it off better.

    A day with one stag knife in your pocket is delightful; a day with two stag knives is divine, José!! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for admiring my mini copperlock, HnS. :)
    That's a pair of aces you've got right there! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    I hope you have a safe, enjoyable, and successful experience, @SVTFreak! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's a fairly girth stump! :eek:;)
    Thanks for the comments on my posted knives, Dwight. :) I like canoes a lot, but for some reason, it took me forever to get that readily-available Case amber bone canoe. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the rock ID, John, and for the compliment on my GECs. :) I do have 3 of them, all gifts from generous BF members :cool::cool::thumbsup:, and I happen to be carrying two of them this week. They're definitely excellent knives, but every metric I use to rate knife quality (except resale price) indicates that GECs are overpriced for me.:(

    Do you think Churchill the man ever ate pizza?? Engaging ebony knife, FBC! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    The Porch roof should hold up well, since there really are so many "pillars" of The Porch here! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    That's definitely a likable S&W lockback. :cool::cool:
    Thanks for the positive reaction to my knives. :)

    The Case and Voos are a venerable, vibrant pair, Harry! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Strong dual entry for Black Friday, Ron!! Ebullient ebony! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thank YOU, Jeff, for observing my observations. :):cool::cool:
    Your pair of dark users will give Ron a run for his money! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Nuke it till it glows!! :p:eek::eek:

    Thanks for your encouragement, Dean. :) I like many things about the mini copperlock, especially the one I have. It's a great size (not really "mini" at all) and I like the lock release bar mid-knife, rather than all the way back to the butt. Mine has the walnut Rogers jigged bone with the quad-threaded bolsters, which is a Case combo that really appeals to me. The guy who gave it to me had glennbad put on a custom shield, too.

    Your Ancient TC is a Theatrical Centenarian, Dean! ;):rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Enchanting elderly knife, Harvey! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: And that sheep dip ad is a treat! :D

    Don't forget the tick inspection, Jeff! :eek:;)

    Fascinating knives, Stuart! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I wonder who designed old celluloid covers? That top knife has covers that don't appeal to me at all, but the raging inferno of a second knife is totally irresistible to me.

    Your AC is so photogenic, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Is that the Garden of Eden?? ;)

    Be careful! You give an Alox SAK a chance, and it will steal your heart and pocket! ;):thumbsup::cool:

    That's about as heavy duty as my knives see as well! :rolleyes::D That Wharncliffe mini trapper is a pattern I've been eyeing for quite a while, especially single-blade CV and yellow delrin. :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for holding me up as an example of a man who stands by his principles (no matter how misguided :rolleyes:), but I have to admit that I've had a simple Mora fixed blade for a couple of years. :eek:o_O Let's just keep that a secret, though, OK?

    Did you pick a peck and pickle 'em?? ;):D

    Alox of the Week is an '86 Soldier:

    non-Alox SAK this week is a Vic Camper:

    Bailed non-SAK this week is an Imperial BSA camp knife (thanks, Paul):

    Thank you.

    Today is the last day for the cadet for now, but I'm just getting started with the scout.
    That soldier of yours looks like a great carry, pretty much a scout with a better can opener.
    Old American scouts have a timeless classic look to them, but that Victorinox can opener that can drive Philips screws and small standard screws is just so much better.

    Today's haul, and tomorrow's carry. A Mike Zescherny improved trapper. I came here with the sole goal of finding an IT and found a great one. Also picked up a giraffe bone small wharncliff made by dunlap. Both came from resellers but I was able to meet with the original makers and speak about the knives. I got a good deal on them. Almost stole the dunlap! Jim told me this one was a part of a collection that a guy had him make one a year for many years but he passed away. He has another in ivory with file work back spring that I just may go pick up tomorrow. I did not win the lottery for a tony bose though. Neither did my 3 friends here with us.
    551BCAD4-CDF1-4D51-A9CB-C34F15F4133E.jpeg I got to meet Tony Bose again. Also met Bubba Crouch, Luke Swenson, Mike Zescherny, Jim Dunlap, PH Jacob, Tobin Hill and many other makers and they are all top notch people. Freely giving advice to my buddy who is making now and still learning, and just super nice guys. Their wives also!

    Thank you Jeff. Capitol idea opting for the shower instead of taking a Dip.:)

    @kai76 Thank you kindly Nick. It’s a brand new oldie, direct from the UK. That’s a lovely one that you’re carrying today.

    @Jack Black Thank you Jack. I love the old ones.

    @5K Qs Thank you Gary. Love your 86 Alox. I keep meaning to get one in orange.

    91°, 40 mph winds made for a very miserable day outdoors, cooled down nicely to 82° with just a mild breeze. On our deck with a 2016 Horse Cut TC and storm clouds to the west:thumbsup:

    I guess we’re dating ourselves. I used to have a gun rack in the back window of my truck.
    Handy for fishing rods, too!

    Knife lovers dream! Thanks for sharing your AAR (After Action Report).

    Snagged some beauties, too!
