Alluring couple of knives; the stag pen is a real standout!
Breathtaking toothpick, and legendary bone on both, JJ!These two Tuesday totes are both wearing jigged bone covers from the same factory, made 50 years apart; a pre WWII Kutmaster scout and a 1987 BB Winchester toothpick.
Morning folks, thought I'd treat myself to a Double Lambsfoot Day
Looks like you have some capital Knife of the Year candidates, Jack!...
Morning folks, all stag for me today
Desirable TC Barlow, José! That coin inspired me to look up the Latin phrase, and I was intrigued by the history going back to Constantine, with connections to Portugal and to Knights Templar!
Speaking of Templar, that's an excellent example of a distinctive style from GEC, John!
Good morning! I hope y’all have a great Tuesday!
Fabulous pairs, Ron; looks like there might be a "theme" in the pairs you're posting!I’m carrying these two today. A Northfield Blood Red #73 Scout from 2011 and a Wright’s Ebony Guardians Lambsfoot from 2018.
Thanks, Mark. That Case Sodbuster Jr was my first single-blade knife, I think, that I won in a GAW early in my time at BF. I used it quite a bit when I first got it, seeing how I liked a single drop point blade, and watching the patina develop....
Thanks a lot Gary!
Nice to see your "fab four"!
Looks like your sodbuster has seen some duty there!
I'm totin' these three beauties today: Lionsteel, A. Wright & son and a Buck. Have a great day everyone.
You have a gallant international trio from Italy, UK, and USA!!
IMHO, the phrase "the more, the merrier" is especially apt in the context of pocket knife carry!Maybe not a practical plan, to carry all three.
Especially since I should be carrying a Tuesday trapper as well.
Thanks for the helpful comparison shots of that fish knife....
It is a smallish knife (somewhere in vicinity of GEC #14) and a thin one too so it must be a good one to keep in wallet, I guess. It disappears in my pocket like nothing else. I always have to fish it out.
That's a handsome stockman, Chris!
Today it's a mid '70s USA Schrade "Slenderino," an 897UH with some nice color and a rare tang stamp.
Jeff and Gev, your Uncles are ideal stockman models!
Joyous photo of your jewel, Paul!
Killer pairing, Taylor!
It's another Palindromic Day, whether you write it as: 9/10/19, or 9/10/2019.
If you write it European style...never mind.
I laud that 29/92 pair, Rachel!
John, I didn't even realize until last weekend, when my daughter sent me a link about it, that recent years have had these long strings of palindromic dates (Rachel's 9/10/19 starts a streak that doesn't end until 9/19/19)! The link I read claimed this was that last such streak this century, which saddened me, but once I started thinking about it, I realized the link was wrong, and such streaks will occur throughout the next decade as well (e.g., 3/20/23 - 3/29/23). There is NOT such a streak NEXT year, but if you use MM/DD/YYYY notation, my wife's next birthday, 02/02/2020, is special!
Quality quintet of slender stockmans, Jeff!Dean, there are some good choices among the imports in the slenderino class, these from Marbles and RR.
Magnificent stag on your Stockyard Whittler, Paul!My Stag Stockyard Whittler
Notable WCLF pair, Harry!
Thanks for the support, sir....
Great foursome Gary; your Case pocket worn is certainly lovely eye candy!
Gotta be quite a weight difference between those two, JJ! I have a couple of MAMs I like, but I'll have to pick up one with that blade shape sometime. Do you like the liner lock?Today's wooden Wednesday totes are a 1965-69 beast from Case wearing "Wonderwood" and a lightweight super slicer from MAM wearing Beechwood.
Splendor in the Grass, José!
Thanks for the info, Gary. I have several mini canoes, and I like them, but I haven't tried a Case Baby Butterbean thus far; may have to remedy that in 2020!Thanks! That's the Baby, Gary. I picked this one up at the Zippo - Case Store in Bradford, PA. It was the nicest of the 2 they had available.
That's an ornate Peanut, Jon!
Both beauties, Chris, but I have a soft spot for big Imperial toothpicks (and even better if they have a secondary blade)!Kim carrying her 1 dot Case Christmas tree #18 Stockman. I'm carrying this c. 1946-1956 Imperial cracked ice Toothpick. Both from estate sale this weekend.
Lots on fascinating info in your post, Jeff! Thanks for the jigging tips, for clarifying your pull-reduction technique, for posting your lovely wood knives, and for the ongoing story of commitment, growing trees from scratch!...
I appreciate your compliments and interest, my friend! Very kind.
