I've been busy with putting on an induction dinner for our local sports hall of fame (whew, it's over with) and have been remiss in attendance here. Yesterday, my son and I went dove hunting for the first time in about 4 years, so I was totin' the same old gear, late getting home, fixing a drink and cleaning doves until the wee hours.

Today, I'm back to packin' a Parker.

Stuart, it’s good to see a Rem 1100 with a wood stock. Seems this day and age you hardly see them getting used.

It’s raining and absolutely cruddy in the Pacific NW today so I figured this Victorinox would be. A good choice.

Beautiful peaches Dave! :thumbsup: Those will be so wonderful during the dead of winter! Beautiful HHB my friend! :thumbsup: :)

More or less do what you really want to and know you should, more of less everyday; and carry something inspirational while you do it to remind you to live with a wild sense of urgency and joy.

I’m sitting here watching the Titans and the Colts. So, I’m not really totin in the truest sense of the term. I’ve got a Gem watching the game with me. If I’m not careful I’ll be spending more time looking at this beautiful knife than the screen! ;) I hope y’all have a blessed Sunday! :thumbsup: :D

The sports go over my head I'm afraid Ron:D But I know a Gem when I see one, etch or no etch ;) Fact is, there is no dud in the 38 range, always a more than cool pattern and the Farmer's Jack is a big favourite of mine. We have @wlfryjr to thank for this:cool:

Regards, Will

I totally agree Will! :thumbsup: The #38 Farmer’s Jack in all their varieties, IMHO, are very significant knives from Great Eastern Cutlery! Definitely the influence of Lyle @wlfryjr and Charlie @waynorth played a significant role in their production! :)

Last year's Forum Knife was also a gem, great steel, interesting blade arrangement and very reasonable cost, very keen on mine anyway.:thumbsup:

This 78 just returned from GEC. They fixed some looseness in the pivot that was caused by the user error. I thought it was cool that they returned a broken knife in better than new condition.

That is excellent service. Great looking 78 too.

This S&M Heritage Series spear and pen jack with steel liners and pins. Dense ebony scales just felt right as a Sunday carry for me. The beaded pouches were found at a trading post some 10 years ago and I gifted them to my wife. They aren't used as knife pouches, that might land me in hot water.:D ebony jack - 1.jpg

Found this at a fairly cheap price on the Bay. Was not all that well cared for but with a tiny bit of TLC and a touch of dye on the scales the real beauty of this knife came out and makes it one of my best. Polishing paste removed scuffs from bolsters and the F&F is superb. This is right up there with my #77 Barlow and my Washington Jack. I'll be totin' this for a while.

I’m guessing made by Schrade? Great looking knife, and I’ve heard it said that Schrade did the best job on jigged delrin.:thumbsup:
Fantastic!

Thank you, Ron :thumbsup: Tomatoes are next :D

Me too~ round two on canning ‘maters.
I have been gardening since I was a teen, and have never had a better year for tomatoes. Having a horse stable 1/2 mile away is a beautiful thing!

@JJ Cahill - Thank you JJ. Wonderful pair of Swiss Slicers.:thumbsup:

@Jack Black - Thank you Jack. Never ever tire seeing your HH Barlow.:):thumbsup:

dc50 dc50 Your HH Barlow image is peachy keen, Dave.

@Ramrodmb - Two splendid images, Mark. The top one is sublime.

@JohnDF- John, your Tidioute Image is texturific.

@Gevonovich - What a lovely arrangement. Wonderful words to live by, too.

joeradza joeradza - Alan, I do believe that I’ve never seen one of your knives, that was less than a work of art. The same goes for your images.

@Cutfinger - Long ago, I once fronted a band, sang and played blues harmonicas, yet never saw one dissected. Beautiful image.

@Duckdog - Gorgeous Parker, Stuart.

sunknife sunknife - Those beaded pouches brought back fond memories of family car trips out west and beaded belts, not to mention later 60s flower child apparel.
