Gorgeous !!! Ever detail...wow
Got these two today:
Todays carry a GEC 15
My usual weekend carry...
So here we are
My secret plan
One more chance
To tell you how I feel inside
Thank you, Gary. Good year for a Soldier; they still had the lanyard hole.
Today's carry. Proving that GT (aka 5K QS) is a good example, his photos of his mini copperhead inspired me to get one just like it. It is a very frequent carry.
I know that it is Stagurday, but a recent posting by @Gevonovich prompted my choices for totin' today. A VANCO premium pen (1888-1940):
And to help me get in the mood for re-stringing some spinning reels, a Remington R1615 Fisherman (by Camillus 1988):
Thanks, Gev, for the dandy candy inspiration.
My pleasure to be sure !!! Talk about dandy candy....WOW !!!! I don't recall ever seeing a Vanco before and that Remington is some serious inspiration
Do not resist the hankering. Beautiful rendition of a classic pattern.
Because that’s what good granddads do. The slight detour for Kringles is just a side benefit.
“Much to look forward to now” should be the motto for all of us.
What’s your grandson’s first name? I will pray for his recovery.
Cool picture, Harvey.
Thank you John.

Luetters stopped to make slippies with bolsters a 15 years ago because the company that provided the fluted bolsters closed.
They don't produce the anchor knife any more, some tears they had one without bolsters, not my taste, now they produced a 20 pieces (as shown on their web) but for a ridiculous price of 99,- (I bought mine in 2005 for 26,-€ in a small ship chandlery in the port of Hamburg).
There is the company Otter-Messer (they produce the K55K as well) who offers similar knives with bolsters, but they don't have the history nor the fit and finish.
Just got the 55 in today, so I'll be carrying it along with the Camillus scout for the week or so.
I just may give the 55 two weeks and see how the brass looks after that.
Nice colorful pair of knives Stuart !
Didn't buy a single knife today. By the time I decided to go buy the ivory dunlap, it was gone. So left empty handed for me. Loaded up on trinkets and stuff for the kids and the wife though.
A little Camillus pen.
