    Looking good Paul, hope you get to put your feet up today :)

    Great-looking Hess :thumbsup:

    That's yer genuine Bexoid Harvey! :D :thumbsup:

    Thanks JJ, a kind gift from Duncan @Campbellclanman a few years back :) During WW2, all the Sheffield cutlers produced knives for the British Military. There were several patterns, but most had checkered 'Bexoid' scales, like this:

    Some companies continued to produce them after WW2, but a few also produced knives for sale in NAAFI institutions, which would probably have been bought mainly by men doing post-war 'National Service', and used up some of the tooling, and even the parts, left over from the clasp knives. There are three patterns I know of, a Sheepsfoot, Sheepsfoot and Pen, and this one :thumbsup:

    Went to the 50th Anniversary of my old Boy Scout camp yesterday, I was on the first staff in 1969. Carried a Buck 110 and an old Imperial Scout to mark the occasion. There were only a few guys there from 1969, but it was a fun day in the woods on the river. OH

    Some of them are deep purple.
    Radio stations should play Smoke on the Water more often.
    Of course nowadays we have Pandora, but their ads can be insulting.

    Your swayback/barlow combo is a salubrious Case couple, Dean! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Wharncliffe/spey sounds like a satisfying combination, although I'd prefer a mini trapper with spey/lambsfoot. ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Salutary stag lambsfoot, Harvey! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Scintillating photo of your fish barlow, Gev! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Surpassing selection, Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Swell pic of your swell-center whittler at the swell-less beach, Nick! ;):cool::cool:

    Sweet spearpoint, Dave! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks, Del. :D Sounds like a sumptuous celebration libation! :cool::cool:;)

    I seem to have that effect on students in class. :rolleyes: I hope your dreams were sweet!

    Maybe I should get some of that seductive fragrance, Harvey, since I've become such a canoesseur. ;) I've been living basically unscented for the past 45 years, but in high school it would have been Old Spice for me (probably because that's what Dad used). About that time, I think a younger sister may have given me some of Vince's favorite potion as a Christmas gift.

    Thanks for the support, JJ, and for the inventive naming suggestion. ;):thumbsup:

    What a supreme pair, JJ! :cool::thumbsup::cool: That toothpick is especially superlative with the striking celluloid covers! One of my favorite knives is a clip/pen Imperial toothpick a "generation" newer than yours.

    You certainly have a lot of sublime stag, José! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Steve. :)

    What a superb Case/Schrade duo of jack knives, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Glad you're taking that stylish knife to the summit with you, Paul! I hope you have a super vacation! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Ron, that Northfield stag Barlow is super suave, and the Pere David lambsfoot looks very suitable for apple work! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Dean, I don't notice a difference in weight, but I may not be very precisely calibrated. :rolleyes: I checked a dealer's site that reports weights to the nearest tenth of a pound (again, not a lot of precision), and Case and Buck canoes were both listed at 0.2 pounds (I suppose that could range from about 2.4 to 4 oz.)

    Another stellar pair of Case knives, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::cool: I really like the covers on the sowbelly stockman. How do you like the sowbelly so far, as compared to, say, you're 6347?

    Your stately sowbelly is stupendous, Gev! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I'm stupefied by the string of splendorous sowbellies! :thumbsup::eek::thumbsup:

    Striking pair of German stag knives, David! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Those stag 73s are state-of-the-art, Harry! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    :thumbsup::cool: Hope you're feeling sleek and solid soon!

    Some spectacular colors to enjoy for a couple of weeks, Dave! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info, Dan. :) Certainly surprising and special pics!
