Brightening up a gray day.
A 1971 CASE #62055 equal end Jack gifted from Primble
Alox of the Week is a silver Vic Cadet (thanks, Ken):
non-Alox SAK of the Week is a Wenger Esquire (I think it's my only Wenger):
My Bailed non-SAK of the Week is a Cannon spearpoint:
Miscellaneous Knife of the Week is a Case chestnut jigged bone CV teardrop:
That's a beauty, Paul.
Nice looking Teardrop, GT.
Thank you so much, Paul, much appreciated!
@tongueriver --- It is the GEC #92 Eureka Jack in Antique Goldenrod Camel Bone. Quite a fine knife. Yellow isn't usually my color but I'll make an exception for this one.
Ha! Excellent! I'll swing by soon, nice to put a forum name to... another forum name?
A pair in black for me today.
Looking at those pictures, I’m pretty sure you are on the wrong side of the river. This is the correct side:
Thank you John, a terrific pattern that goes un-noticed in the pocket
Last minute switch-up this morning, decided to go with a Medium Dogleg Jack. Case 6207, 1975. OH
We saw you standing over on that other side today. Why didn’t you wave back!
I couldn’t see you through the downpour!
I’m carrying this one this week - picture was taken just upriver from there sometime last year:
We were able to get there before the downpour! It’s a beautiful area. Great knife photo!
Thank you Sir! It's definitely brightening my day.
This is my first Texas yellow rose from GEC. And the first yellow rose from my backyard this year. We are spring now in Australia.
Synchronicity indeed !
I'm glad that you took a liking to the knives, Ron. It was the least that I could do after you helped me sort through the last (?) remaining box of knives from my stepfather's legacy to me to make sure that I didn't miss anything.
It was a fine day, despite the overcast skies. The chili cheese dogs from the almost 60 year old Vienna Inn got us off on the right foot, for sure. They have that dish down pat. And thank you for the very generous (and sneaky) gift of the Case Texas jack. It's in my pocket and is my new favorite knife. I did not have one, and he is settling in with his Case cousins and half-brothers very well.
Tom, you make a good point, there are two beautiful sides to the Potomac. I told Ron about the C&O Canal and towpath, and about Billy Goat Trail and Fletcher's Boathouse (and the rockfish/striper runs). True treasures on t'other side. Oh, as Ron said, we did wave.
Here's some visual proof that I was standing near Ron today, with a Case 6207 dogleg jack from 1940-1964:
Stuart, I’m glad to help you go through your treasure troves of knives. It’s like an educational sort of thing to me. I get to CE and CF some vintage cutlery I would otherwise never get to see. And besides, the company ain’t to bad either!
Thanks, GT, for all of you kind and constant comments. I've been sporadic in my postings and will try to get better in my attendance. Your capable Cadet and handsome Teardrop caught my attention today. All four were worthy for carry, but those two warmed me on a chilly day.
You're very welcome kind Sir, and thank you!
I love the simple elegance of your image; basic beauty!
Thank you Harvey; that same pattern was my first single bladed folder in the Case rendition over 50 years ago!!!
Wonderfully tasty photo with the HHB covers richly chocolate like its perch; a sensory overload!
It's quite a treat to see such a classic carry; my first fixed blade was a Buck and my knife roots are in your cool image!
Stunning image of your new beauty; the bone covers look fantastic!
My Wednesday wooden totes are both wonderful French slicers; the Le Compagnon "Le Thiers" knife by Chambriard in juniper and the classic Laguiole en Aubrac in ebony.
Yes indeed my friend, great to see you two fine gents hanging out together, it sounds like you have been having a fantastic time Those photos are breathtaking
I'll join you in that if I may Dylan Hope everyone has a good day
Many thanks for the suggestions, but in principle we will not have time for more.
For the seasoning I prefer a good olive oil of course.
Nice foto of a good GEC #15.
