It turned cold and breezy overnight, actually beginning to feel like hunting season, so I'm totin' a large (5.25") folding hunter, Queen model 38 (1950-1955).

H&S, I failed to mention earlier that I like that Buck fixed blade (I use a 119) and I really like that Case 048 Slim Line.

The Slimline sure is a nice knife and my favorite for slicing cheddar at lunch. As with all case knives however I wish I could get in amber Jigged and CV, I'm just fine with the as ground stainless though.

The 119 is a great knife, I've not carried mine this year I don't believe because I've acquired a handful of smaller B&T types like this 102 woodsman or the new C&C exclusive 212 I just ordered but I still love the knife.
Love the 119 and have no problems carrying it, but it's a bit large and thick for cardboard at work.
Could and have but quickly decided smaller ones were a better idea, not exactly the safest with lots of people who don't know how to be careful when someone's using a knife, and don't believe me about how sharp I keep mine.
Belt knives are my favorite for utility at work, pry a good belt knife from my cold dead hands but you'll never get a modern one hander in my hands when I need a one handed blade.

I always have a Big Knife of the Week, usually something around 4" closed. This week, my "official" Big Knife is a Rough Rider Half Hawk:

As much as I love those BB Winchesters, JJ, that Schrade-made scout is pretty special.

@5K Qs Thanks GT, as far as I know or see..Popcorn is fairly unusual on American Elk yes. Probably depends on where on the antler the slab was cut. Pere David for example, is usually smooth (and quite nice I think) but I've got an example with very deep grooves on both sides, not bad!:cool:

Regards, Will

It's been a while since I've carried this one, mainly because it is so special. Yes, it has a PPP on the blade, and only 20 like this were made. It's special because our own Pertinex gifted it to me a few years back. And yep, it made me cry when I say what she sent. Here's to a Friends or #15 Friday!
