    That's a very distinctive knife, Alan, and I always enjoy seeing it! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Looks like a real Fourth of July Feast, Ron! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Do your dogs have both chili AND potato salad on them?? I've never heard of that before, but it's a fantastic idea!! :)

    Thanks for your positive comment, JJ. :) That pair you posted sure has bounteous beautiful jigged bone! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Welcome to The Porch, @Marlingspike12! :) Your pair are classics! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Very cool photo, Dwight! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: It reminds me of one of my favorite legends from the history of mathematics, with the "punchline", "The lion is known by his paw!"

    Elegant indeed! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: But only a Texan would consider 4 1/8" trapper a "little" pocket knife! :p

    Holy Cow, John, that's a gorgeous knife! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Glad I could stimulate your gray cells, Jack! :thumbsup:;):cool: My high school Latin classes (and the context) helped me correctly guess the meaning of that word.

    Sensational photo, Harvey! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I didn't even notice the blade of that knife until my third viewing - I was fixated on the mesmerizing checkered covers!

    Outstanding Case Barlow; amazing jigging IMHO! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: I wasn't even aware of that specific model until I noticed 3 or 4 of them in the past 3 days, and suddenly I'm wondering if I can live without one (even though I'm not really a Barlow guy). :rolleyes:

    Splendid pair of knives for work, David! :cool::cool::thumbsup: But what are your columns of numbers? At first I thought they might be temperatures because I thought that was a thermometer at the top of the pic, but you're not going to get all those fractions off that scale. (Not even sure anymore that it's a thermometer - why would 22.5 be marked?)

    Delightful duo, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    I found a Wikipedia page about declarations of independence, and it looks like Texas has TWO of them, one directed at Mexico and one directed at USA. A few other former Confederate states apparently have declarations of independence for their secession from the Union.

    Thanks, Dean. :) It was very educational for me to study the document looking for quotes I could use.

    That's a very cool "subcollection" based on getting all the blade combos for a given pattern. :cool::thumbsup::cool: That would be more engaging to me than trying to collect all the handle options for a specific blade combo of a pattern.

    Thanks for all the comments, guys, especially on the leg knife. :) I once wrote down all of the different topics of conversation I thought that knife could start, and wanted to do a thread on knives that were "conversation pieces", but it hasn't happened yet. :rolleyes: Dwight, that's "factory scrimshaw" on the knife, but Rachel recently did some amazing scrimshaw for me that I have to post today sometime! :thumbsup::cool:


    Outstanding pair, Harry! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I just asked my wife if she wanted me to sign us up for class involving balance exercises, but maybe I just need to get the right pair of knives! ;)

    That canoe is definitely a looker!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: The quad-threaded bolsters are superb, and I like whatever that variation of amber jigged bone is. 5 years ago, I had never seen a canoe pattern and happened to get one in a set of 12 Rough Riders I bought. Once I carried it, I had a hard time getting it out of my pocket! Now I have dozens of canoes. :eek:

    I hope there's not too much damage with those quakes, JJ! :eek: Two more astounding old knives! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Splendid pair, Jeff! :cool::cool::thumbsup: And, just a little insight into my geezer mind, the sight of your elk Buck somehow triggered for me pleasant thoughts of Elke Sommer, a movie star from my youth! :confused::rolleyes:

    Has RALF been doing some hoeing, Jeff? ;) He looks none the worse for wear from using whatever garden tool that is. :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Congrats on your new Camillus, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Terrific trio, Vince! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I went with cargo shorts today to make some extra room. ;)

    Sensational handles on that one, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: (It reminds me that I want to try doing that to a wood-handled MAM I have.)

    Congrats on the Hartshead Barlows, Dave! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I didn't even realize that yours had arrived, or that you were getting both stag and rosewood versions; don't break an ankle dancing for joy!! :D

    That's a BIG pen knife - very cool! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, GT! instead of the usual 6 to 9 weeks delivery time, it only took 3 weeks :thumbsup::D As far as announcing there arrival I chose this time to casually post photos rather than a post with a big bang :)

    Congratulations Dave! :thumbsup: It’s a beautiful knife! :)

    It was a great meal Gary! :) I’ve never heard of potato salad on a hot dog either! o_O Those hot dogs were topped with yellow mustard, chili with beans and HOT SLAW! I would call that a southern style hot dog! :thumbsup: :D

    I’m up and wide awake with excitement and anticipation for the women’s World Cup final this morning! Go Team USA!!! :thumbsup::D:thumbsup::D:thumbsup::D

    I’ll have these two close by today! :thumbsup::D

    I just received this on July 5th from a member, don’t know a whole lot about it. It definitely looks like brown jigged bone, it’s not synthetic.
    It’s one sweet little knife, it will see a lot of pocket time.

    Thanks GT, the numbers are measurements for shoe moulding I was installing. The notations beside the measurements are my short hand to help remember where I am. Especially helpful in kitchens with allot counters to go around.I measure and write down an entire room at once, then cut the peices. So for example, 23 1/8 with 45 in/90 would mean a 23 1/8 inch long piece starting with a 45 degree inside cut ending with a 90 degree cut. I always go from left to right. The thing at the top in the pic is my mitersaw,with the degree Mark's on the base.
