Ya know... I had just recently made up my mind that if I have my choice when the upcoming 77s are available, I was going with the blackwood. Please refrain from posting any more red sawcut bone until after those are released. Thank you!It felt like a Barlow kind of day, especially since I just ordered a Case Barlow for my son's birthday coming up.

Thanks, Rachel. Gotta get some pics of the canoe in the environment that inspired it. Saw this guy this morning (and I think it saw me ):I thought you might bring that one on your vacation. I'm glad you're enjoying it.
OH, that's a splendid canoe! Any idea on the time frame during which Case was producing a CV chestnut jigged bone canoe? I really like the chestnut jigged bone, but their current offerings don't include the canoe....
Ps Had to find the picture, but this is a 1999 Chestnut Bone Case Canoe with CV blades. Very similar to the color shown in the 1998 6318 MED Stockman.
Thanks, Stuart; that knife has been my main kitchen knife on vacation, but the big rabid squirrel BIT my thumb last night! Other than that, the vacation has been très magnifique so far!...
Thanks, GT. Your Cognet L'Ecureuil is sleek and simple - all that it needs to be. I'm glad that you had a chance to get away for a bit.
Very cool find, Vince!Thanks, Gary. I'd probably call it a pen rather than a spear, but pretty much the same shape. Yes, it's an ink pen. (Out of ink! Should I return it? )
My grandmother's number was TU[lip] 2-8284. [Decades ago, but I still remember.]
Thanks, Gary. The QQ look good no matter where you carry them.
Do you think it might have been modified, e.g., re-covered??Yes, Gary, the Boker shadow is so unusual that I can't find out anything about it!
Thanks, Lance.. Gary, the knife is a Buck 692 Vanguard. As far as your question regarding guitar picks goes, you’re going to have to find someone more knowledgeable than me (That shouldn’t be too difficult).
Count me in! I can find both spellings online, but until today, everything I saw regarding the Canal Street model used the "illogical" spelling. But I happened to find this BF thread which uses our preferred spelling:Thank you. I agree with you completely on this point, but I even Googled it to see how to spell it, and everywhere it was mentioned, that was the way. Let us rebel and call it a Canittler going forward
Trust me, I feel cheated.
Agree! My (possibly totally inaccurate) memory is that my elementary school finished by Memorial Day and started after Labor Day. It was a farming community, and that may have influenced the schedule.Yeah, school should start AFTER Labor Day. Summer vacation should be a full three months!
I hope your new school year is as superb as your rosewood lambsfoot!
Thanks, JJ, for your positive commentary....
I'm glad to hear your having a great vacation, Gary! Walking over 5 miles a day in that wonderful spot is outstanding!
Thanks Gary! You were my original trigger to acquire the sowbelly and it's become a favorite!
Your vacation quartet is playing some lovely waterfront music; great shots!!!
Thanks, Nick ; that chestnut jigged Sod Buster Jr. has sentimental value for me. I still don't have a black or yellow synthetic SBJr, yet!...
Gary, I love your bone sodbuster! Always wanted one and still don’t have one yet...
Superb photo, Vince! (Do you play?)"I'm singing this note 'cause it fits in well
With the chords I'm playing
I can't pretend there's any meaning here
Or in the things I'm saying
But I'm in tune
Right in tune"
Thanks, Jack; no real holiday complaints from me!...
Good to see your Fantastic Four Gary, hope you're having a great vacation
Morning folks, hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm starting off the week with my pocket-hogging Hartshead Barlow, and a special knife gifted to me by @btb01 last Christmas in Sheffield, made by Camillus of course Hope the fishing is good Barrett!
SMOOOOOTH Duo, Ron!We’re back home after a great trip to the Rendezvous. I’m hoping everything goes as Smooth as these two today! It’s great to be back home! Hope y’all have a great week!
Thank you on both. Kim will be excited you like her Toothpick. And she loves her Coke Bottle. So do I. I keep asking her if she wants to trade for the Buck 305, but so far no dice!
That's a pair of preeminent pale pairs to ponder, Gary!Micarta Monday gives me an excuse to carry this pair.
Maybe this pair for Mammoth Monday.
I appreciate your opinions, Stuart.Thanks, GT, and that Recruit is a beaut!
That;s the one, GT, and a very special one at that.
I didn't even realize they offered a single clip version; nice, Dean!
Always a treat to see the Weck, Nick!
Handsome knife, Stuart; the bone has the color and jigging characteristic of so many of @SteveC's knives, like THIS beauty that follows!In honor of the several nice Schatt & Morgan knives that I've seen posted recently, I switched from my morning carry (Opinel No. 8) this afternoon to a dressier knife and went to a local spot to gab with some friends and have some cooling beverages (yes, it's still hot here, though less humid - we're in a drought). Miss Norma joined me for dinner (half-priced burger night, so I picked up the tab). This was my totin' choice: Schatt & Morgan equal end jack in Rogers bone, 1902-1928.
This one today

Congrats, Joshua; thanks for the update! Back in school yet?
Superb sowbelly stockman!
GEE-ODE! that's a jewel of a knife, Dave!
Patriotic and pretty pair, Dean!
Thanks! I never know what I'm going to find at the gun show. There are always some nice knives that are overpriced, and always a lot of junk, which I can tell at a glance. But I always find something I like at a reasonable price.Very cool find, Vince!
Thanks. I do not play, but my youngest son does. In fact, he is playing now as I type this on my iPhone with my stubby fingers. He doesn't play The Who, though, (whose [pun intended ] song I quoted in my post); just classical!Superb photo, Vince! (Do you play?)
Glad you are enjoying your vacation. Those are good-looking stockmans you took along.Here are more knives that I took on our 2-week vacation; we head for home Saturday morning.
Stockman of the Fortnight is a Colt "black stag" sowbelly:
Stag/Horn Knife of the Fortnight is also a sowbelly, in ram's horn by Marbles:
