    Waynorth in the far North. The claymore pin is the McLaren badge, I'm Lawrence which is a sept of the McLaren's so we get to wear the badge. (If I understood correctly)

    Today my tote pair will be a couple tough hombes; a 1957 Wenger Swiss soldier knife and a super slicer '65-'69 Case Barlow.:D

    One of this lot, but which one? ;)

    The Ivory Bone I think!

    Those are all 15s? How do you like that nifebright one?

    Yes, all 15 Barehead singles. The Nifebright is tough stuff, attractive and its visibility in the dark when 'charged' is cool. Goes well with a Sheepfoot in patina;)

    Good taste, the 15 seems about perfect to me. I'm keeping my eyes open for one of the Nifebright like that. Also looking at the #35 Calf Roper since the 15 Nifebright is pretty hard to find.

    Thanks, John. :)
    Interesting comment on your slimline trapper and GEC #48. I often follow a similar process: I'll admire GECs or Cases or whatever that folks display here, and then search for a Rough Rider that IMHO is "functionally similar". :rolleyes:

    Attractive couple, Vince; the covers on those two, although stag and bone, match quite well visually! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    The reflection in your glossy horn is really cool, Dave! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Here's a winter sunset I accidentally caught in my 2017 horn Guardians lambsfoot:

    As usual, you've got a nice fixed/folder pair, Tom! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: The Farmer you sent is superb, and probably going on vacation with me starting Saturday! :) Remind me to never sting you in the face! :eek::D:thumbsup:

    Thanks for the RR Electrician comment, Harvey; it's a solid knife and I love the shield motto. :) Your photo with the "mystery knife" silhouette is intriguing! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks, Steve. :) Fabulous old/new combo for you! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Ron & Harry, you gentlemen "are of one mind" when it comes to choosing your pairs this day (and when it comes to your upcoming travel plans)! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Dean. :) I hadn't remembered the important role knives play during Hari & Dors tie in the Dahl sector. And the fact that, although knives were illegal, they could be purchased at any store displaying a washing machine was amusing. ;) I've also moved on to Forward the Foundation, but so far have only been reading it in bed, which means only 1 or 2 chapters per day before I nod off. :(

    Sweet Swayback, Dean! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Case jigs the heck out of that pattern! (Looks like quite a sizable barn in the background of your pic.)

    When Lucy is left to her own devices, seems that trouble often ensues and blood is often spilled! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it now and then! :thumbsup::p Is that knife 3 1/8"? Except for the covers, that knife looks similar to the one my wife got from her father sometime, found in a box in January 2014, gave to me at that time, and got me interested in pocket knives again after a 45 year hiatus. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Handsome knife, Paul! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Couple of ravishing recent releases, Taylor; congrats! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for your thoughtful replies, JJ. :):thumbsup::thumbsup: There were a lot of "heavy hitters" hanging around RAND/DOD back in the Cold War days!

    One of my favorite SAKs! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Is that a black one?

    Cool photo of your horn with the cool bolster! :cool::thumbsup::cool: The background inspired me to look up that album on Wikipedia, and I learned the origin of the title; that story must be a favorite of a bike guy like you! :D:thumbsup:

    Lovely ligneous selections! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the 25 show this week, @Travman! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Definitely desirable duo, Jeff! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Rockin' the rojo mojo! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Instant classic lambsfoots, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Good wood for midweek, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    You're never in a pickle when you've got a Presidential! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Ravishing! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Am I cruel if your teardrop makes me smile, Dave? :):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Parsley, sage, rosewood on time! :cool::cool::rolleyes:

    Fantastic photo, Harvey! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thank you JJ! :)

    Thank you Gary! I do think that Harry @Old Engineer and I have common tastes in Cutlery. We also have something else in common by the fact that we both married well above our pay grade! ;):D

    A Happy Yorkshire Day to all! :D

    The small Kephart - style knife by Blind horse knives with the pocket sheath I made. I have allready ordered a Brisa Trapper and kicked myself in the leg not remembering a Kephart style blade might have been even better, like the Ka-bar Becker Kephart. I like the sturdy tip and the simple lines of this kind of knife. Of well, maybe I will get also a Kephart and make a review of both?
