    Today's totes are from Imperial; the first BSA Cub Scout knife from the late 1940's and a Hammer Brand cattle knife from 1938-41, both with identical punches.:)

    One of the nicest cubbies I've seen. And that may be an understatement.

    After spending years accumulating many bone-handled pocketknives (while ignoring wooden handles) all of a sudden these beautiful wooden handles are catching my eye and staying in my mind - this doesn’t bode well for my hobby cash! Simply beautiful gentlemen. OH

    It's not fancy, and I often forget it's even there, but no matter what "main" edc knife I'm carrying an Alox Cadet is always in my left front pocket. Here's the blue one:

    They are the same, except the blades on 27s are a bit thinner than on 29s. Take them apart, and there’s no difference between springs, liners, and bolsters.
    This is that knife compared to an older 4 line stamp 29~ 77B9C503-05AE-4F72-A472-F2E5AC54426F.jpeg the 29 is on the left.
    Here are two made much later. C9A88D89-D9C3-4305-B99D-35C3470109A1.jpeg CE47D4D7-EC1E-4FFB-9AD8-2599C2F493C9.jpeg
    More Camillus electrician trivia~ the old ones had the bail mounted forward on it’s own pin. Like this: 55BA51A9-21D5-43A5-AE93-60FF2CE38BD2.jpeg The final version has them mounted on the spring pin at the very rear, like the previous picture.
    Very nice! Makes me wonder why things that work so well get set aside for something shiny and new. We recently tossed out our fancy robotic electric can opener, and went back to a SAK.
    I would bust up the beans one by one with a hammer if I had to rather than go without coffee!

    I love your photo style! Almost as good as drooling on it in person.

    A couple of Camillus re-hung in elk antler will accompany me to the memorial of an old and very close friend, who passed due to a severe stroke at way too young of an age.
    I’ll see you at the smallmouth river, Steve.

    Thank you very much Bruce . In 2014 when I started to collect Barlows I saw that Taylor's Eye Witness made and sold Barlows with Desert Ironwood and Amboyna wood covers . Right then a Barlow with either of those covers was a Grail Knife for me . I do carry mine , but always in a slip . I also like many of the other woods but prefer those with a very tight grain .
    I wish you luck in finding one that you like .

    No, it's a Black Box Winchester Stockman. Sees a lot of use.

    Thanks, Will

    Superior knives with bone just made to be paired together, Steve!

    Iconic Barlow and eye-catching photo, Dean!

    Congrats, José; outstanding stag and charming rattail bolster on that knife!

    As always, an impressive pair, JJ! I really like that Catt with a single spey blade.

    Superb vintage pair, Jack! I hope your weather dries out soon.

    That colorful HJ is a charmer, John! Kudos to @knowtracks for his generosity.:thumbsup::):cool:

    Another pair of venerable workers/winners, Jeff! You call them "old girls", and I think of my knives as being male, usually; I wonder why folks differentiations in that regard. (Do you have some knives of each gender?? :rolleyes:)

    Thanks for the info, Todd. I wonder if A.G. Russell is targeting a different market now?

    A lot of variety in materials, blades, and styles in that pair, Dean! That 2015 Forum knife is a very attractive pattern.

    Good wood, and exceptional toothpick, @JOELSM !

    Congrats on the handsome ebony Simmons Keen Kutter jack, Bruce!
    And Stuart, that Ulster ebony has genuine charisma!

    That gift Old Timer is a fitting tribute, @315 !

    Sweet mod of your Okapi, Tom!!

    Belated birthday greetings, ma'am; I hope it was a happy day and that the happiness lasts until the next one!

    The jigging on the toothpick looks outstanding, JJ! How big is the toothpick?

    I always enjoy your posting that VERY pleasant knife, José!

    I know you like awls/punches, Rachel, but I'm surprised to find you carrying a knife with ONLY a punch! ;)

    Quality Queen Barlow, @HFinn !

    Bailed non-SAK this week is a Colonial advertising scout; I don't remember how it came to me sometime before 1980 :(:

    Watch pocket knife this week is a Colonial "wireframe" with clip and bottle opener (thanks, Dave):

    Peanut-like knife this week is a chestnut jigged bone CV Case Swayback Jack (thanks, Paul):
