    Tempted by the titillating toothpicks recently released from Titusville and posted in this thread, I promptly went downstairs to the knife piles and pocketed this Queen City pair for today's toothsome twosome tote.

    Only the larger one (1925-1932) is from the original Queen City era; the smaller one is from 2016.

    Capable coffee Case copperhead and exquisite ebony lambsfoot, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I sure admire your distinctive taste in desirable jigged bone covers, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    :thumbsup::thumbsup::)

    Flawless jigged bone and felicitous saw cut bone, Dylan – a salubrious Study in Scarlet! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    José, that gallant, groovy knife arrived right on time! :thumbsup::thumbsup::)

    Congrats on a once-in-a-lifetime (so far ;)) experience, Tom! I'm honored to see that handsome, helpful, historic hockey trio one more time! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Jack, this thread seems to mark the demise of your inspired and inspiring idea, as the most recent winner apparently just kept everything. :(

    But @Hickory n steel decided to reboot the tradition:

    It's gone through at least a couple of rounds, and IIRC the current state of affairs is reflected here:

    Thanks for the commendations on my Case carries, Dean & Stuart & Nick. :)

    Those two blues are not too blue, but true blue, Dean! ;):cool::cool:

    Gargantuan goodness, Stuart, from a time when giants walked the face of the Earth!! :eek::thumbsup::cool:

    Your information is impressive, intriguing, and influential, Harry! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: Once I've mastered sharpening my knives, I want to learn how to cut and shake pastry to minimize the calories! :D

    I'll bet you're right, Vince. Some of those old boys would have certainly enjoyed an old boys' knife like your black beauty! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    A-OK FOB, FBC! :cool::cool::thumbsup::) I really enjoy your ground-level shots, but am impressed by the flexibility you must exhibit to take them! :eek::D

    Thank you, fellas, for the wonderful compliments, they are always appreciated.

    There is certainly nothing to forgive, Harry! (errr, I mean, Ron :D) I've certainly been guilty of the same mishap, on more than one occasion, I am sure. It gave me a good chuckle.


    Continuing with my Lamb and Barlow pairings today. Blade shape redundancy... But I lack a black clad Barlow with a different blade shape. Makes for a devilishly handsome pair, all the same.

    And, "off the schedule", I'm carrying a couple of free choice knives all week. One is a Rough Rider black lip pearl gunboat canoe that arrived last week, and the other is a Case rough black canoe (thanks, Alan):

    I've had a run of good luck the last couple weeks finding interesting knives. We have a great little feed store in our town, been in business almost 70 years, and offers more than just feed and farm supplies. I was in before Christmas buying a few knives for presents. Looked at a Moore Maker and was unimpressed. Main blade had actually not been ground, other flaws. After some educational reading on BF I had a better understanding of Moore Maker and decided to stop in and see what they might have from Queen or Camillus, because some of the stock has been there for years. Bought the one below Wednesday. Gunstock Trapper (6200GS) in Sambar stag (actually says Sambar "deer" in their catalog, I'm assuming it's the same thing). Had been sitting in the store since August 2015. Little surface rust on the main blade that looked like fingerprints cleaned up nicely except for a little staining. Mineral oiled the stag. My understanding is this is one of the Queen made knives. Good fit and finish, took a scary sharp edge quickly. Just a really nice, solid little knife. Having its maiden voyage in my pocket today. If anyone is interested in Moore Makers let me know, I'm headed up there tomorrow to look through the stock. Just didn't have time Wednesday to look through everything. Edit: Oh, and the shields are pinned on this knife. Nice touch IMO.

    Yowza! That's a beauty, Stuart. I love those curved handle trappers. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thank you, Gary. :)

    That is another special stag by RR, Gary!

    That is a excellent example of the pattern, Taylor! :thumbsup::thumbsup: I enjoy using mine a lot; it's just perfect for a variety of tasks.

    Today is Flag Day in the U.S. and also the birthday of the U.S. Army. These seemed appropriate.
