    Thanks Michael! It’s the only 72 I own and I sure was tickled pink when I found it. I’m always looking out for more of them! I hope you find a nice one someday.

    Thanks for the nice words JJ and GT! Actually the swell is on the rise for the next couple days!

    Now that is funny!

    I listened to Pretty Reckless yesterday, but on my iTunes, so no disruptions. Saw them a couple years ago, fun show. Pandora would have given me Phil Collins.

    Seems whenever I used Pandora years ago, they related everything I listened to five degrees of Phil Collins. Ugh.

    Yesterday was the Victorinox Soldier. Taught a couple of Hunter Ed classes with it in my pocket, then at the bar watching WSU give it away to UCLA.

    Today is laundry day and it’s miserable outside so the Case gets to ride along.

    Yeah, that Wazoo game was amazing!

    IMHO Chip Kelly should be asking, "You want fries with that?", but the game was exciting!

    Nice Photo! :)

    It astounds me how creative GEC has been and continues to be. What an amazing story. Who would have believed that a new traditional knife maker, beginning production at the same time many others were going bankrupt, would be so successful?!

    Greg, if you are referring to Bill, he's been a knifemaker, beginning (and learning) with Queen, since 1975!! He developed into a skilled cutler, running the production, and being responsible for their (limited) success!! But having his ideas for the firm steamrolled until, he finally quit for the third time in 2006, he started GEC!!! I guess he's showed them his ideas were sound!!! He's a talented cutler AND a talented businessman!!!:thumbsup:

    Thanks for that educational insight into military Sheffield cutlery; as a youngster I thought all tableware was from Sheffield, as that was all I saw! :D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    It seemed to be a similar name to the Canittler.:D Thanks Gary; I really enjoy all the many patterns and iterations that Imperial did over their long history. It seems that both Imperial and Camillus really came on strong in the Post WWII period. Btw, when I was young I was a huge Kurt Vonnegut Fan; great background to your cool Alox electrician, great choices!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Certainly Harvey; I am looking forward to your wonderful photographic skills when you capture your new arrival!:eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Very cool Nick; maybe your 72 assuaged the surf gods!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
