    Praiseworthy pair of euro-friends, Rachel! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    That's a ravishing red Case stockman, John! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: Model 6318?

    I appreciate (and agree with ;)) your assessment, John. :)

    Goodness, what a handsome couple, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Your two-blade TC is Thoroughly Captivating! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Enjoy your week off! :)

    Enjoyable post, Buzz! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    3 knives with purposeful lives, David! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Harvey, I'm grateful for your support. :) Optimal pic of your Ancient! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Your sowbelly is swell, Gev! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for the ID, HnS. :) I once had a Chinese Buck Solo that was probably similar, but I awarded it to someone in my first BF GAW, back when I had NO use for single-bladed knives. :rolleyes:

    Thank YOU, Jeff! :cool::cool::thumbsup: I sure appreciate you making those stag RRs available. :)
    Thanks for the compliment, Dean. :) RR medium stockman is very similar in size and features to the 897UH you sent me, I think.

    Definitely a cheerful Farmer, Tom! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Magnificent knife, Jeff! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I've never been a big GEC guy with regard to the frenzied sale periods, but I kind of regret not at least trying to see if I could have acquired one of those! :eek::rolleyes:

    Thanks for the mini muskrat info, Dean. :) I may have to investigate that pattern and its availability. 'Preciate your giving my Peanut props, and I'll say "same to you" regarding your red Peanut. :)

    Congrats on the Squire's intriguing little Barlow, Harry! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's a pair to be proud of, Vince! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the encouragement, JJ. :)
    Your Catts have a jigged bone bonanza going on! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Immaculate Böker copperhead, Dave! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Dwight if you're taking a poll, I think of your two gorgeous stag Hartshead Barlows, I prefer this one with the big mark-side valley! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I always admire your elk rehandles, Jeff! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Dazzling dark duo, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Love seeing your lambs in the wood(s), Taylor! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Striking knife, Stuart! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: If you're superstitious about that "666" on the bolster, I've probably got room to store that Beast for you! :D

    Very nice! How does it compare size wise with a Camillus 23?

    I'm not sure, I'll check when I get home. It is fairly new and was unused, although I got it at a flea market. It has dark brown delrin covers,they end up looking black in pics though. I bought a klien 3 blade today that has an almost unused spear but the bench grinder been used heavy on the hawkbill. And a Camillus navy camp style utility, that the covers have shrunk and cracked. The Camillus has some major gaps and looseness going on. But it has a long bladed caplifter screwdriver. Bought them to mod, probably make a frankenknife. Frame and spear from the klien, caplifter from the Camillus. Use the leftover Camillus parts to make a 2 blade jack. Pics later of today's finds, got a wood covered Camillus tl29 with a faint USMC stamp on the cover that's in really good shape ;)

    Thank you, Gary. I don't think case is currently making the mini muskrat (which I did not know when I made my previous reply). It's worth looking around for one though.

    In addition to the various categories of knives I carry each week as dictated by my rotation schedule, I usually carry 1 or 2 "free choice" knives each week as well. These are often knives that are too new to be on the current 45-week schedule, or knives that I just want to carry "on a whim". Here are the "free choices" I made for this week.

    How do you like the barlow compared to the mini copperlock? I know they are very different knives but I have a very small number of traditionals and the mini is one of them.

    I like it a lot. The F&F on mine is excellent and it disappears in the pocket. Nice action, too. It’s a bit smaller than the mini Copperlock in both handle and blade.

    When I first started accumulating slip joints I started with the Canoe then discovered the Copperhead I quite like them. :)
