    It's not big at all, just over 4 inches, similar to a Case trapper, but half the weight (1.9 oz). Very lightweight. It came with a little drawstring bag, but I carry it in an A. G. Russell leather pouch in my left front pocket. Any pocket slip or pouch that would accommodate a trapper would work.

    Thanks Gev! The knife is from the Camargue region of the south of France, handmade in the small village of Bezouce. The stamp on the bolster is known as the Camargue Cross with three elements, the cross, the anchor. and the heart which represent faith, hope and charity. I find these French regional artisans are quite interesting as they all forge a bit of their provincial history into their cutlery.:)

    @5K Qs I usually carry a Pioneer. I bought the walnut Spartan just to try one with wooden handles but now I tend to carry it more than the Pioneer. I like it because its so light I barely notice I have a knife in my pocket.

    @5K Qs Thank you GT for the nice words, and thank you for the Stockman. On my future list, after listening to you, is acquiring a Sowbelly. Your current carry knives, as always, are a joy to look at.

    Thanks Dwight! Your Hartshead looks great with the stag covers! Is that a recent production knife from Sheffield?
    I agree, a cover material that has a dual sense appeal!:thumbsup:;)
    The curve of the handle keeps your hand forces in a forward direction, away from deploying the lock mechanism. It's a lighter use knife than a Buck 110, however.:eek:
    I recently acquired my first sowbelly and immediately felt how ergonomic it feels in hand, with any of the blades open; great pattern!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    That's quite a foursome you have today! I don't recall seeing a melon tester quite like yours, very cool!:thumbsup::cool:

    9EB37A6D-3A41-4A6E-A591-BC7CDF101DD8.jpeg As punishment for my woodlesswednesday, I shall be forced to carry these old things today.
    Taylor’s Eye Witness Lambfoot in walnut, and Schrade Walden TL-29 in cocobolo.

    I took this pic two hours ago in between a light shower right at dawn, and a much longer and heavier one just a few minutes later.
    So glad for the rain!

    Jer I was inspired by your fine hat to post mine with today's carry. :D IMG_4142.jpeg

    It is GT. Like unto the proverbial "glove". :cool:

    @afishhunter - Very cool indeed! I hear bagpipes... :cool:

    Thanks JJ. It is part of a recent Jack Black SFO.
