    Who made your improved trapper? Looks almost identical to my Mike Z one I picked up at blade. Nice.

    Still sticking with stainless until the remnants of Barry move on out and take all this rain along.

    Thank you GT.

    I always enjoy the prose in your provocative photos Gev. Soft and soothing.

    Very nice navaja con barlow Vince.

    Incredible stag on that beauty.

    Thanks JJ. That's a gorgeous pair you're sporting today!

    That hat is WAY older than I'd have guessed! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    You got that right, John; thanks! :)

    Actually, I'm saving my street dancing until I get old enough. :rolleyes:
    I'm happy to be carrying the canoe! :cool::thumbsup::cool::) Lamp-black is carbon, not stainless, right? ;)

    Thanks, @Fire Beard. :) I'm something of a canoesseur, and probably have at least a couple of dozen RR canoes. Many of the canoes in this pic are Rough Riders (or closely-related Marbles and Colts):

    You're telling it like it is, Dean; thanks;):thumbsup:!

    Striking knife, Dean; I don't think I've seen another knife with those covers! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks, Jack. :)
    Luscious pair of lambsfoots! :cool::thumbsup::cool: I get confused by your stag HHB pics, forgetting that you have TWO of them so the covers are not actually changing! :rolleyes:

    My pleasure, Rachel. :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Your rosewood HHB is getting some noticeable patina on both blade and bolster!

    Thanks, Harvey. :)
    Amazing shot of your Northwoods! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: What are the actual cover materials? It looks like crusty bread fresh from the oven! ;):cool::cool:

    Congrats on the 93! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Some folks don't care for the shield placement, but I think it looks great!

    Congrats on the Churchill, Jason! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: The ebony Churchill is IMHO a first-class knife!

    Incredibly handsome jackknife, Josh! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Splendid sleeveboard with tip bolsters and terrific bone, Nick! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Whoa, dynamite duo! :cool::thumbsup::cool: What are the covers of the pen knife?

    Captivating congress jack! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Vince I declare complete solidarity with everything you've stated here, and I admire both of your stag stunners! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Goodness, that is an elite Böker!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    :p I hear you, Scott! :thumbsup:

    You gotta get picture-enabled, sir! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    I'm sure there are plenty of "cute" Porchsters who want to see you in your Irish finery, too! :D

    What a graceful glamour shot! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, JJ. :) That's my first folding hunter, and I'm still trying to adjust to its massiveness! :eek: I've been using it in the kitchen this week, and while it feels good using the clip blade, when the clip is closed and I use the skinner blade, it's kind of an uncomfortable grip. :(

    That's an unusual pair! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Sounds like you know all the angles, Del! ;):cool:
    I'd forgotten about Foghorn Leghorn! :p "That's a joke, son!" "Look at me when I'm talkin' to you, boy!" What a blowhard rooster he was. :D

    Thanks, José; I thought you might like it because you have some nice scrimshaw! ;)

    Your 73 is a wonderful knife! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    It took me quite a while to figure out what had happened to the handle of your white sod buster! I thought at first that a dog had chewed it up! :rolleyes:

    Pure carbon like black snow! :D
    When I was very young, and living in Phillie, the snow that piled up between the sidewalk and street would turn black from car exhaust. I would take a stick and draw lines, breaking through the crust of soot. The bright white lines exposed were striking. Reverse scrimshaw!
    I always enjoy watching patina develop, and I'm fascinated to see what the bolster will look like. They are of the same steel as the blade, but differently heat treated. Will that effect patina formation?

    Will the HHB help clean fish? Have a great time!
    Wowwee wow wow! You ain't kidding about "all the trimmings"!
