    @JJ Cahill - Thank you for the nice words, JJ. Both Moose and Bull Nose look great. The Bull Nose was my first traditional. Great tool knife. That Linen Micarta has a very smooth feel in hand.

    @Rose and Thistle Custom - Your -new to you- Dixon penknife is very nice. Hope you’ll share your attempt to resolve the closing issue

    @Jack Black - Nice outdoors with the knives image, Jack.

    @Wurrwulf - Easy to understand your excitement. Your JH Lloyd is beautiful.

    @Gevonovich - lovely quiet image, Gev. Showing detail in the shadow area, in low light, is not easy, but you did so, quite nicely.

    that’s not the way I took the photo or that it shows up in my album, why did it flip it?

    I got in there with a toothpick and cleaned everything up pretty well. This picture is the small blade full open, you can see that the spring is very sunken and the blade not all the way open. The back square where the spring lands looks worn and I'm suspecting that's the cause of the sunken spring and the blade not fully closing or opening.

    Still with the 212, I think I'm going to to stick with it through the year but that's what I said about the 102 before ordering this bad boy :eek:
    I'm not in the market for another belt knife but who knows what I'll find.

    I'm thinking maybe putting a shim on the front square will get it to close and just think of it as a single blade?

    Thanks Jack! The Mink is one of several knives that Stuart @Duckdog has gifted me. He has the same generous heart that so many others have! :thumbsup:

    I got to spend some more time with my buddy Stuart @Duckdog today. We had a feast for lunch at the Vienna Cafe! :thumbsup: We each had two fully loaded chili dogs. They had chopped onions, special made in house chili, cheese and mustard. We also had some shoe string fries. It was a very tasty lunch. About an hour after lunch I told Stuart I didn’t know why we didn’t think to take a photo to show y’all! :eek: Stuart was showing me around some places in the area I haven’t been to before. We drove by the Wolf Trap Park, which any of you music lovers will be familiar with. Next we went to the Great Falls National Park on the Potomac River. Stuart wanted to show me how close they actually are to DC. It’s a historic area and we were lucky to be able to get out between showers. Here’s my Case Texas Jack posing for a photo with part of the falls in the background. All in all a great visit. Thanks for the hospitality Stuart! :thumbsup::) My Texas Jack liked Northern Virginia so much it just decided to stay! ;)
