    It is indeed a 6347 with 3 springs and amazingly thin for its size. The 18 is a favorite for many people; collecting them would be a daunting challenge.

    The humpback stockman is a fascinating design; a commendable carry for a discerning knife knut, Gary.

    Trying to think but nuttin happens!”
    (My favorite Three Stooges quote...for good reason).
    The walnuts, my oldest ones at least, are around 35 yrs old. For some reason, I can’t remember when we moved. I laid in a row of walnuts in the garden at our old house, and when we moved, dug them all up~ about 3 dozen~ and brought them to the new place. They were about a foot high at that point. Now, with all of the walnuts that I get, I dump wagon loads on the 7 acres across the road, so there are a lot of walnuts over there now too.
    Of course, the squirrels keep planting them in my perennial beds and vegetables gardens.

    In about 180 years, I’m gonna have some nice wood!

    Sweet knife I’d be proud of!

    They've got a collection like this and aren't a porch member ?
    You've gotta get them on here, they'd fit right in and would certainly love the place.

    Gorgeous knives, JJ. The bevels on the blades are pretty special.

    That's a beauty, Alan.

    I'm swayed by that fine knife, Dwight. Nail Nick 4.0!

    I'm very impressed with that walnut, Jeff, and equally in love with that Schrade. Great work on reforestation, pal.

    That Utica jacks me up, Steve.

    Still a powerfully handsome pair, Ron.

    Lovely, Nick. Ain't Millers mesmerizing?

    Thank you, pal. You brought me out of my period of somnolence.

    That knife would make me burn with a blue heat, Harvey!

    Beautiful knife, José, and a lovely picture. Thanks you.

    Yep that's the one. Fine choices, Gary.

    Thanks, Jeff. The fishing was fine, hot weather for the week, but fish were biting. We scored lots of Spanish mackerels and bluefish while trolling, and ate them all (grilled and broiled) each evening. Here's a bit of knife porn from my fishing locker:


    No fish pics, as my hands were either slimey or gripping a drink and not suited for holding my phone. Plus, the fish were dead.

    While fishing with a very youthful (to me), and distracted, crew, I asked several of the younger guys (in their late-20's) if they could swear off social media for a day or two. Email was OK to see and pay bills. They took me up and two days later, I bought dinner and the bar bill for a lot of happy guys (who all admitted that they liked the break). I took the break a little longer and missed a good bit of this thread. Apologies to all for my radio silence - it was benevolent, not begrudging. I'm slowly coming up to speed for BF and my other internet haunts, but it has been halting.

    @Duckdog Thank you Stuart. What you and the young fellows did is what I would call taking a mental health break. That was a great idea of yours.

    @Amir Fleschwund Good for the squirrels, they must love you!

    @Duckdog Thanks Stuart! Nice to see you had a great fishing trip and also nice to see you back! Fresh caught fish for dinner every night sounds awesome.
