My "plain" canoe for this week is a Rough Rider amber jigged bone model, the first canoe I ever owned; it infected me with a serious canoe fever:
My "fancy" canoe this week is a Mohawk stag canoe, made in Germany (by Böker??) for A.G. Russell:
Good find!Taking this with me today. Found it in a cigar box. Had forgot about it.
Welcome back, Todd! You've posted a couple of attractive SBJrs.I've been away from here far too long. I'd forgotten what beautiful pocket jewelry the folks here on the porch tote. So here's a little Old Red Bone Sod Buster Jr. I picked up this weekend at the Shepherd Hills Celebration in the Ozarks....
Looks like a place with a helpful hardware man, Stuart; very cool!For Wooden Wednesday, I'm totin' a whole hardware store.
I always appreciate your input, Dean. I almost never use Vic toothpick or tweezers; I guess I don't know what I'm missing.Excellent knives, Gary. I've looked at the silver Alox Classic for years - I so wish they had a toothpick in those because they are really good looking. The Case Humpback stockman is a treasure and a great gift!
Excellent choices, Dean!These two today.
The Star Spangled Case Teardrop in memoriam for those we lost on 9/11. And the Buck USA Poly Pearl Cadet because it's pretty.
WW!! That's a compelling custom, Harvey, with jaw-dropping jigging!
Dynamite dye job, Nick!Have the 72 with me today after I applied some potassium permanganate to the covers. I really like how it turned out. Much prefer this darker brown to the more orangey color before. I liked this knife a lot before I applied the PP but now I really love it!
That's a winner, Dave!Wooden Wednesday and for the next several days.
That's some "Heavy Metal", JJ!For today's "Thursday totes", two trapper patterns from GEC caught my fancy; a #53 Furtaker trapper and a #43 Oregon trapper.
Handsome knife with intriguing handle, José!
Ron, if I had to draw up a list of the 5 GEC models that appeal most to me, both that jigged bone WCLF and the Churchill would be on the list!I’ve got these two in my pockets this morning. I probably won’t need them both, but what’s that got to do with it! Y’all have a great Thursday!
I'd forgotten that you had that glorious Catt, Mark!Totin' this Catt. today. The weekend is nearly upon us! A good day to all.
OO GEC 29 SYW is A-OK, JDF!!
Isn't 9/19/19 "Talk like a Pirate Day"?
Aren't numbers fun.
You are correct... Palindromic Pirate Day?
Yes, I certainly am thrilled about one of those slim stockmans in your photo!Thanks, Gary, I know at least one of them you like quite a bit!
Today it's a Bulldog medium stockman with some interesting synthetic covers.
Distinctive blade combo on your yellow copperhead, Steve!Copperhead that I just got off the exchange and my old 34OT
Long, lean, lithe, lissome - lovely!I'm totin' a Thursday Trapper and a friend.
What a quality quartet, Dean! I suddenly yearn for yellow.I carried these four Yellow Case CV knives on the trail today. Peanut, Pen, Medium Stockman and Sowbelly Jack.
I'm grateful for your daily remarks, Stuart....
Covers of caramel, GT. So sweet!
Just trying to show my appreciation, GT.
Very clever, sir. And thank you,
I miss @SAK Guy.
You’re right Harry! The #35 Churchill is a terrific pattern. People that try then really like them. They have become very popular for that reason. I’m fortunate to own several because they are sorta scarce. The #93’s and in particular the Waynorth Lambsfoot is IMHO one of the most significant knives that Great Eastern Cutlery has ever made! My alarm is set for 5 AM or sometimes earlier each weekday morning. It depends on what kind of day Pam has scheduled. Since she is still working the least I can do is fix her breakfast and see her off to work!Those 2 Jewels will someday be Classics !!! You are posting pretty early in the morning my friend to be a Retired Gentleman .
JJ your daily carry choices are a treat for me to see each day! Thanks for sharing them my friend! The bone on your Whit-L-Craft Scout is absolutely outstanding! They are both outstanding!
A great pairing Jack! I hope you have a great weekend my friend!Missing a day here has left me hopelessly behind, so I'll just throw in my carry, and wish everyone a good Friday
Harry and I totally agree with you Gary!Ron, if I had to draw up a list of the 5 GEC models that appeal most to me, both that jigged bone WCLF and the Churchill would be on the list!
Nice to see Lucy getting some sun.Missing a day here has left me hopelessly behind, so I'll just throw in my carry, and wish everyone a good Friday
Thank you, GT.OO GEC 29 SYW is A-OK, JDF!!
That S&M is a real beauty!
Fantastic pair, Ron.Hope y’all have a great day!
Thank you, Mitch!That easy opener is sweet, looks a good user
