    I’m carrying two Jacks today. I’ve got a Case Texas Jack with Chestnut Jigged Bone covers and I’ve got a wonderful gift from my friend Stuart @Duckdog. It’s a mint Queen #29 English Jack with Winterbottom covers. We believe these are Delrin, but they are very nicely done. Y’all have a great day! :thumbsup::D

    Thank you. The photo doesn't catch some of the scratches on the handles. Also, I put a really bad ding (more of a fold) in the blade the first year I had it and have been slowly trying to correct it. :)


    Another gorgeous group, Gary! The Vic Soldier is great! :thumbsup:

    Thank you for your kind comments, Gary. Swayback Jack!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, buddy. Steve and were inseparable in high school wading all the creeks and rivers for smallmouth, as well as all the usual shenanigans. When I went off to U of I, and then got married and moved to the Ozarks, all that changed, but always considered him a best friend. Last time I saw him was his Dad’s funeral two yrs ago.

    The old girl thing just bubbled up out of the murky depths. Maybe comes from my Navy Dad and Grandpa with his fishing boat teaching that boats are always “she”. Just comes naturally sort of like how you whip out the slide rule out of habit!:D
    Sweet and classy Case, GT, and cool old Colonials.

    I had other plans but it’s been raining non-stop since 8 last night. Figured a little stainless couldn’t hurt today.

    It’s always good fortune when you acquire a knife from @Gary W. Graley . You’re getting one vastly improved upon. Le Thier by Chambriard, 12.25cm, Peppery smelling Juniper wood and razor steel. Thank you Gary.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'd even chew the beans and chug some hot water if I didn't have a hammer. :D
    My condolences.
    After 170 years of use, all blades become awls. :):thumbsup:
