Thanks Gary!!! You have quite an outstanding line up today; you're S&M 99 is the icing on the cake!That's some "Heavy Metal", JJ!
Thank you Ron!!!J 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!
Your two ebony beauties are certainly a site for sore eyes; superb!Hope y’all have a great day!
An awesome knife for slicing up those tasty treats; perfect combination Dave!Canning Peaches today.
Very cool; you really nailed it with that beautiful old hammer, Gev!To a hammer....everything looks like a nail

Thanks you for your kind words Dean!!!Wow, I'm infatuated! Both of those Catts are treasures. Thank you for posting them!
Great shot of your Buck Cadet; can't get a more handy knife than the all American stockman!My circa 2000 Buck Cadet for old friends and black Friday. This was my EDC for year or two in the early 2000s. It is a 3-spring stockman and is very well made.
Thanks Harvey!!! You certainly have many amazing Sheffield lovelies; I'm happy you found your latest TW Ablett beauty, extraordinary!t may be Friday the 13th, but so far the only thing crossing my path is good fortune. I’ve been looking for a TW Ablett for sometime. May he rest easy.
Wow Stuart, those are a couple of black beauty Queens for the Friday the 13th; they look like museum level pieces!otin' black knives on a full moon Friday the 13th! What could go wrong?
That is definitely a Cool Catt Nick; love the fully intact etch!
No it’s not broken. I think what you’re seeing is the nail file/pipe scraper tool peeking out the back at where the little cut out is for access to it.Is the spring broken?
Thanks JJ! I really like the bone on your Catt scout. Cattaraugus made really good looking bone, some of which are very similar to Robeson’s and I wonder if they were actually from the same supplier? Also like profile of that spey blade, kinda like a drop point blade. IIRC, I was watching one exactly like yours from the big bay a little while back but I didn’t pull the trigger. Yours is a single blade ya?That is definitely a Cool Catt Nick; love the fully intact etch!
Thanks Nick! I have noticed the similarity in bone between Robeson and Cattaraugus as well; I know there were Case family members involved with both companies (early with Catt and post WWII with Robeson) so there could be a connection? The spey is a single blade I P/U on the big bay around a year back.Thanks JJ! I really like the bone on your Catt scout.

It keeps me looking Jeff!It’s a great color now, and I agree-quite an improvement!
You’re very kind, and I agree - Harvey’s knife has some incredible jigging.
Wow! Works of art.
I know, Mark. But I don’t think I’ve ever even seen a Case at our big flea market, much less one in mint condition.
Thank you for your kind comment!
You’ll probably “need” the nail file on a SAK, but will keep pulling these out to admire.
And aint nothing wrong with that!
I love the S&M jack!
Great one from a great knife company!
Thanks Nick! Love your bone 72!Thanks so much guys! Yes I’m stoked on how it turned out.
Thank you Ron! I’m pretty sure your 73 will be a good candidate for some PP. Would love to see how it turns out if you decide to try it.
What a beauty!!
Thank you sir!Your post was the inspiration for my totin' two today, JJ. (Btw, I have a straight line stamped BB 1924, like yours, and an arched stamped one, too. Love'em.)
Brilliant pair, Rn.
Ultra Utica, Steve.
Covers of caramel, GT. So sweet!
Something's fishy, if you ask me. At least, you'e hooked one, Jack.
You are THE winner, Mark.
Just trying to show my appreciation, GT.
Very clever, sir. And thank you,
Both are gorgeous old knives, Chris Congrats to both of you.
I see the theme, too = great pairings (and the cover colors contribute, too).
Impressive improvisation and improvements, Jeff.
The rams foot is radiant, Steve, but the Remington is the prize, in my eyes.
Thank you, Dean.
Absolutely amazing angular art, Harvey.
Seriously solid stuff, Jeff.
Nice job, Nick. Really perks it up.
Dang, that's a potent pair that you've pocketed, Ron.
Simply marvelous, Mark.
Jiminy Christmas, that's a beauty, Alan.
Well done, David. Another knife with a renewed life.
A perfectly practical pair, pal.
Wow Mark, that's a lovely Catt; the "Indian trail" jigging is marvelous!
Awesome Schrade along with those cool old BB cards; they certainly bring back memories!
Thank you Gary!!! It's very hard to beat the old pre WWII jigging! I like the MAM liner lock slightly better than the Opinel twist lock, more intuitive.
Great foursome you put together today! I'm looking forward to seeing your BB Win sowbelly too!!!
I really do admire the patience and skill jigging takes; one day we'll see your jigging looking like Harvey's knife!
Very sweet couple of beauties for you today; looks like another great elk horn covered EO by you!
Thanks Harvey!!! You really paired up a couple fabulous knives; the incredible jigging from yesterday with the lovely file work and coined liners of you snakewood? lamb, wow!
Thanks Stuart!!! The arched tang stamp is a real rarity! That bone on your 2 beauties was such a perfect cover for these original BB Winchesters; no doubt about their legendary status!
Thanks Jj! Those are both fantastic Catts as well!
Lucy looks great Jack! Beautiful custom also.Missing a day here has left me hopelessly behind, so I'll just throw in my carry, and wish everyone a good Friday
Thanks GT! Love that Ebony S&M!Good find!
Welcome back, Todd! You've posted a couple of attractive SBJrs.
Looks like a place with a helpful hardware man, Stuart; very cool!
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 choices, Dean!
WW!! That's a compelling custom, Harvey, with jaw-dropping jigging!
Dynamite dye job, Nick!
That's a winner, Dave!
That's some "Heavy Metal", JJ!
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'd forgotten that you had that glorious Catt, Mark!
OO GEC 29 SYW is A-OK, JDF!!
That's only a week away, matey.
Yes, I certainly am thrilled about one of those slim stockmans in your photo!
That Bulldog is no mutt!
Distinctive blade combo on your yellow copperhead, Steve!
Long, lean, lithe, lissome - lovely!
What a quality quartet, Dean! I suddenly yearn for yellow.
I'm grateful for your daily remarks, Stuart.
I miss @SAK Guy.

As long as it isn't a notoriously innovative locking system. Like a Gerber Gator. But if you find out the hard way, don't take it personally. There are gray areas, and the mods try to protect the subforum by erring on the side of conservatism.I'm guessing lock backs are okey dokey? Just so I know...
