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!
I've been married 36 years, and my wife is retired.... I'm WELL aware of the Hallmark Christmas movies, believe me. By the time December gets here, I've turned into Scrooge... BAH!
I'm so glad I don't have cable any more. Been reading more lately, and so has my wife.I love ‘em.
The only thing I cannot stomach is HGTV, which Mrs Fleschwund would happily watch endlessly.
Anyway, tv time is for knife maintenance, reading, or noodling on guitar.
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
You have some fine old friends, Rachel....
It's Old Friends Friday.
I'm right with you, Jack, in not keeping up with the pace on The Porch of late!I'm afraid I've fallen hopelessly behind with this thread again ...
That's a long and lovely Laguiole, Harvey, with striking covers!
I'm carrying these two today: a Case medium jack and the Sodbuster, Jr. my Dad gave me when I was 17 (1971).
That's a distinguished dark duo, Dean, and a couple of the medium jacks that have suddenly been catching my attention here!2008 Case Crandall Medium Jack.
That brace of bareheads is a beauty, Steve!Case Barehead and a #74
Glad you and Stuart could meet, Ron! I'm certainly impressed by a stag Churchill and a jigged bone WCLF!Thanks for lunch Stuart! I really enjoyed the visit! I was Totin these two for show and tell with Stuart. I knew he hadn’t got to see a Waynorth Lambsfoot in person. I think he was impressed!
Cool covers on the cattle knife, JJ!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.
Thanks for saying so, John.Nice bunch of knives you got dealt this week, GT.
Condolences on losing an old friend, Jeff.
Thanks for the encouragement, Dean....
Another gorgeous group, Gary! The Vic Soldier is great!
Thank you for your kind comments, Gary. Swayback Jack!!
Yeah, I'm sure most of us have habits whose origins are inexplicable....
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!
Sweet and classy Case, GT, and cool old Colonials.
Congrats on another luminous Laguiole, Harvey! I like the way juniper seems to have tiny paw prints all over it.
I'm perfectly happy with my Folger's crystals stirred into a microwaved cup of skim milk.I was thinking the same thing. I'd even chew the beans and chug some hot water if I didn't have a hammer.
Thanks for the replies, Jack....
Cool Soldier Gary
Still raining unfortunately mate, but at least we've got the great food right?!
Terrific trio GT
Boy, this thread sure does FLY! Hope everyone is having a great weekend I've been out with these two today, my Hartshead Barlow SFO and a GEC #44 kindly gifted to me by my pal @Campbellclanman
Choice covers on that one, Paul!
Your Grandpa was a dapper dude, Jeff, and that Camillus EO teardrop is a classic!
That's outstanding, Paul!A vintage Schrade Cut Co HJ with HOLYOKE BELT CO stamped main blade with secondary punch
Thanks for the info, Alan. My eyes are not what they used to be.
Thanks, Harvey. My photo processing software menu says it's "noir"!
Thanks for all the kind words, JJ....
Thank you for your great comments Gary!!! The Catt Spey is really among my favorites and the BB Winchester toothpick is a "normal" size at 4 1/4".
I really like your terrific memorable trio; i knew an interesting chap from the Donnelly clan many years back, cool guy!
Thanks again Gary!!! The LF&C is less likely to be seen as they had stiff competition from Remington and Ulster during that era!
Great classic image of your "Valley Jack", a timeless piece of cutlery!
Thanks, Jack.Great pic of your Valley Jack GT
Morning folks, hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday Going a little fancy today (well my pockets are)
That slender stockman is a real looker!
Just returned from a trip to South Dakota and I am 45 pages behind on this thread
The sky in SD always grabs my attention.
Carrying these two today.
Those are some fine Autumn pics, Jack, and of course, the Ebony is even finer.
Eschewing the typical "Wooden Wednesday" today and opting for some fall colors myself.
I'm right with you, Jack, in not keeping up with the pace on The Porch of late!
Lots of lambs' feet visible in your photo of the stag lambsfoot!
Thanks for the replies, Jack.
Wonderful pairing you have!
Splendid pearls on parade!
