modern traditional monday at the computer with my Dom. have a great week everyone!
That coke bottle is gorgeous, anything near that nice goes for more than I can afford to gamble on a knife from the Bay but I can dream about it at least.
Stuart, you are always pulling out gems! The jigging on your century old coke bottle is superb.
@Duckdog Thanks Stuart! Excellent knives you have today, both are great but that 100 year old Crown coke bottle sure is amazing!
This one again today
This thing is really growing on me
YWZA, that's a pair to pine for, Paul!!
Congrats on the captivating Case Barlows, Dean & Greg & Josh & Jeff!
Nick, the challenge must be NOT pocketing that one every day!
Alan, seeing that shell shield stag, I finally know what Frankie Valli was singing about way back when
Man, that knife/slip combo is a treat! (I won't put a link to "Mac the Knife" here, but I should! )
Fine recipe for pairing up knives, Rachel! But you Texans seem to lack creativity when it comes to chili recipes!
When asked what my favorite soup is, I usually say, "Chili!!" I obviously have an inclusive, rather than exclusive, definition of "chili". Does Texas chili include any kind of tomatoes? What about water? What kind(s) of meat are acceptable interpretations (in TX) of "carne"? Do all chili cook-offs win with every participant tied for first because the recipes are identical? (Or do Texans distinguish between "beans and meat" and "meat and beans"??)
Grand slam, David! Those are two of my favorite Case patterns, especially with the single spring!
Great photos of what sounds like a perfect Father's Day celebration, Buzz!
Do "simply superb" and "superbly simple" mean the same thing? Just to be safe, I'll say that knife is both!
Enjoyed your pics of your outing with daughter and BSK!
Premium pair, Taylor!
Another handsome couple; you're quite the matchmaker, JJ!
Congrats on the Duncan gunstock; it goes well with YOUR recent "eternal" stag Barlow!
Magnificent Loewen Messer, Dwight; is that a "current production" knife, or does it just LOOK new??
Thank you GT. The seller said it was a gift from a German friend 40 yrs ago. It was still in the factory plastic sleeve. He said it had been in storage ever since.
Cool Case copperlocks, Ron & Dean! Are they full-size or minis, and is there any way to tell without some kind of size referent??
It depends on the "size" of the knife need, but will almost certainly be one of the Vics. If it's something like opening a package or pill bottle seal or other "light duty" tasks, I'm most like to use the little Wharncliffe blade (or even the scissors) on the Minichamp. If it's food prep/consumption or whittling/trimming wood or other "heavier duty" or "longer blade" tasks, I'll probably grab the Alox Solo.
That's a tool box in the palm of your hand right there!
Are you as happy with your ebony lambsfoot as you hoped to be? Glad you found one!
Prestigious pair, Jeff!
Lovely knife, José!
For me this week,
Alox knife is a silver Farmer (thanks, Tom):
non-Alox SAK is a modified Recruit (thanks, Greg, for knife and bust):
Bailed non-SAK is a GSA Kutmaster:
As found at flea market
After some TLC
The Four Seasons blasting out of my 64 Chevy radio. The memories don't get any better than that. But nothing beats
LionSteel Bolus for micarta Monday
Thanks Stuart! Those old Case Barlow’s are special!
That’s a great pair to spend the weekend with Stuart! The Queen is very nice! The Jigged Bone on that Crown is outstanding my friend!
Thanks Gary! My Yellow Delrin is the small size. It weighs in at 3-5/8”.
Chili is not soup! It's thick, and doesn't need tomatoes. And beans are a separate dish. Don't know if you can find good chili outside of Texas. It was invented here in San Antonio in the 19th century. But I'm going to calm down now and pour me a cup of black coffee.
Just sit back and chill-eh

Most Texans aren't very PC, so we don't worry too much about inclusion when it comes to chili. We're more concerned with issues of right and wrong, and beans in chili is just wrong! The first World Championship Chili cookoff was held in Terlingua to settle that question. Wick Fowler won, dropped the mike, and walked out ha ha ha. We're willing to accept diversity in meats. Any cut of beef, venison, pork, even chicken. Any tofu product attempting to masquerade as meat gets you banned for life. And no, everyone does not win at chili cookoffs. Because that would be like participation trophies! I have a great joke about someone from the East Coast substituting as a judge at a Texas chili cookoff. I think the language precludes posting it here.
BTW, the best way to eat a Whataburger cheeseburger is plain and dry. Mmmmm.
I'm chilling, Dave, listening to Sinatra.
Ha! I waiver now Jeff
Nick that Empire is stunning man just incredible.
What a fantastic pairing! Both are fine as frog hair Stuart.
Oh my Dave that thing is beautiful indeed!
