This one seems to mostly end up in my pocket. The build quality of this knife is superb and I have use for all of the blades. Besides, I can carry a unique piece of abstract art around with me too.

Thanks JJ! I wouldn’t be able to tell by the bolsters, how do you tell? It does have steel bolsters which I prefer over NS because they develop a warmer patina in my opinion.

@SteveC Your 72 is so nice to look at, love it!

@Gevonovich Beautiful HSB Gev, that shield...:thumbsup:

cigarrodog cigarrodog I love your knives but I’d really like to take a ride in your time machine!

Empire for Sunday.
Climb aboard Nick.:) Beautiful Empire you got there.:thumbsup:

Two gems and another great image. I got mine out for some coon action:cool::thumbsup: We need a thread dedicated to Vic & Wenger and genera
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.

Thanks Gev, sounds like a great idea!!! Fantastic image of of your wonderful HSB jack; very cool covers!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
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.
Great load out for you father/son expedition; the abalone covers on your Parker are outstanding!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
The one in the middle today.

Ain’t no Barlow like a red Barlow!
I'm in total agreement as those three would convince anyone; fantastic covers and photography!:thumbsup::thumbsup:;)
That Whit-L-Craft is amazing! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I remember that, early in my time at BF, someone posted an original ad for Whit-L-Craft that I thought was such an intriguing artifact!

Thanks Gary; Cattarraugus responded to a questionnaire they gave the Boy Scouts in the late 1920s and designed the Whitt-L-Kraft around the results, pretty cool!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
Great to see your wonderful Quartet playing some fine visual music!:D:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Based on my fairly limited knowledge many of the Robeson bolsters seemed a bit rounder and slightly more sleek. It showed up more often on their post WWII Barlows and their other premium knives of that era, like these 2 (if that makes sense:))

Btw, another beauty today; Empire was an outstanding company!:thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

Thank you JJ. The Robsons are both so nice, it’s hard to say which I like more.
