    Going with the Sodbuster Jr. again today.
    I wish I'd tried this pattern earlier, it really speaks to me as a good "user" knife. I might have to invest in a prettier model some day.

    I am awaiting a Case Sod Buster with the yellow cover for the wife. She might as well cut hay bale twine in style. Who knows, if I like it, I might get one for me.

    Just for you, I'm carrying a beautiful old Camillus scout today. This one is a bit of a mystery, as it has bone covers and the backside of the main blade's tang is stamped with a 99. As far back as any records I've seen, the Camillus 99 camp knife was never produced with bone covers, and I don't think it was ever produced with this style of can opener either.

    But the year this knife was produced is probably very close to or earlier than the oldest published Camillus catalog, right near the end of WW2, so it's kind of hard to say. I'm thinking that this may have been an early prototype or from a small initial run of the 99. At least that's what my romantic heart wants to think. But the real details have been lost to time.

    Either way, it's a beautiful knife. The worn covers are drop-dead gorgeous to my eyes. Fit and finish is outstanding. Main blade is extremely full. Brass liners just add to the charm of this wonderful vintage knife.

    Thank you, Jack! I took that photo at a local park called Pickerington Ponds which, oddly enough, has a lot of scenic ponds. Unfortunately, it also has a lot of annoying mosquitos. :)

    Lovely Lambsfoot knives today! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
