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

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

Good morning Jack! Two classics from our friend Charlie! :thumbsup: :cool:

Pam and I wish you a Happy Birthday Charlie @waynorth! It’s a pleasure to know you sir and we wish you all the best. I’m carrying two of my favorites from you today. An Ebony TC from 2014 and my new Ebony Waynorth Lambsfoot. :thumbsup: :D


Thanks pal, hope you have a good week :) Nice choice for this auspicious day :) :thumbsup:

Happy belated B-Day to Charlie !!! Your creations speak volumes and enrich us all

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 are fine pair yesterday and today

Same again

Most excellent !

Amir Fleschwund Amir Fleschwund I like the access relief you made for the pen on your what must be a 33OT.
And I like the knife too, a tad small maybe, but as I heard someone here say "a great do everything knife".

cigarrodog cigarrodog leading and playing harp for a blues band, too cool man! For a time around the 70s-80s Hohner quality fell far, a few guys figured out how to make those lemons play properly, and later, even better than harps had ever played. I am a hobbyist member of the tradition of coaxing better performance from Hohner harps. Good news is Hohner quality is through the roof these days.

Gevonovich Gevonovich thanks for the compliment on the photograph. I hope to break my habit of posting terrible photos. I try my best.
