    Hello Paul. That one started life as a Chestnut bone covered Case Bose Eureka Jack. The bone on it was dull and lifeless and just butt ugly IMO. I commissioned Javi Garcia on Instagram and had him recover it in vintage natural canvas micarta. His work is top notch! :thumbsup:

    Yes, Gary. I do like the Florist. Slim, light, and a great shape for using. Like my spokesman said, if you recognize that it is made for cutting flower stems to length (probably on a cutting matte), and trimming leaves off stems while making up floral arrangements, the four finger grip, straight cutting edge, shorter blade, and chisel grind all make sense.

    We do have a florist in the family ~ my son's mother-in-law ~ and from watching her in her flower shop, I had the fantasy of gifting her with one of these (I have two). But I don't think she gives two hoots about traditional pocket knives. She seems to prefer dull scissors and even duller utility knives. :rolleyes:
    But she sure knows how to put flowers together that please Mrs Fleschwund!

    The Vik Florist excels at cleanly harvesting in the garden, small pruning jobs, and makes a great paring knife in the kitchen.

    I'm envious over your Alox specimens... but I really like that Pocket Pal!
    BTW, Holub Electrical supply in Sycamore is about 40 minutes south of me. I have read speculation that their electrician's knives were made for them by Klein and Sons out of Chicago.

    My only Bulldog. I just love the thinly ground spey blade and the match strike nail nick. The green jigged bone isn't bad either.
