    Thanks very much my friend . Grand-dogs and Grand-kids are much alike in that , it is great to have them and it is sometimes great , but lonely , when they leave . This big black dog is just a fabulous dog though , as I am sure Loki is too . Bell will be here a couple of more days while her Dad & Mom are here to spend some time in the area with their new Grandson , born yesterday .

    For Friday I've got a couple from the 1920-30s era; a black EE Pen and a bone covered Jack, both by Robeson.:)

    Great knives and pics, Jeff! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:
    I don't suppose I could convince everyone to voluntarily refrain from posting photos showing snow this winter. :(

    Patriotic teardrop for Veterans Day, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    IIRC, you served in US Army; is there a story behind you and your brothers all going into different branches of the military?

    Outstanding Outlaw, Paul! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: I apparently never paid much attention to that GEC pattern before, but it's an interesting gunstock variation. Is it still called a gunstock jack when there's a blade at each end?


    Shawn, your knives often surpass mine in quality, and now you're starting to catch me in the quantity you carry!! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the story behind the "new look" Eric's Jack, Nick. :) Definitely came out more than "pretty decent"! :cool::cool::thumbsup:


    Tremendous and thoughtful tribute, David! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for the good words, JJ. :)
    Quite the slender/stout pair for you! :cool::thumbsup::cool: I'll vote for that svelte and seductive toothpick.

    Pleasing photos of your auspicious Ancient, Dean! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: (Now I'll have to dig out a Calvin & Hobbes book to page through. ;))

    I like that knife, too, sir! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the photo praise, Dean. :) I look forward to my couple of lakeside weeks each year! You've probably never heard of Zombie Nick because you hang out with classier folks than I do!:rolleyes:

    Harry, you and your two TEWs are all amazingly good-looking and functional for your ages! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I appreciate your opinions, Stuart. :) I'm a big fan of the humble Pocket Pal!

    Jumping Juniper, JJ! Is that pair from Jupiter? They're certainly out of THIS world! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: That bolster stamp is fantastic!

    Thanks, Jack; that's the power of random selection determining what I carry. :rolleyes:
    I like your 2-blade TEW lambsfoot, and especially that celluloid sleeveboard! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Impressive pair of knives, Jeff, and interesting photos! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Lovely ligneous Laguiole, Vince! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Sensational knife, Gev, so slim and sinuous! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Grand and priceless stockman, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I think MENSA considers it a sign of superior intelligence!! :D:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Holy Moley, that's a striking knife!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Whoa! That curved, jigged bone, stepped bolster, sheep/pen Battle Axe Barlow is a show-stopper, Stuart! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Grail gunboat! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: Congrats on possessing that stunning knife!

    Excellent selection, José! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    W:eek:W! You nailed it, Rachel! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Does Sköll share your passion for fishing, John? :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:


    What a knife! Thanks for the intriguing and informative history lesson, Gev! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    The handle of your Lionsteel looks fabulous with your rocks, Tom! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Is that ram's horn?

    Couple of charismatic classics, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    What a terrific twosome of trappers, Stuart! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Compared to the trappers overbuilt like tanks, yours are so satisfyingly slim!

    Interesting pair, Dean! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Is the stockman a '318? I have a Zytel LT347, but yours has a "California clip" unlike mine.

    Cool Toni advertisement, Jack, but I had trouble sleeping because you didn't include the answer to the burning question! :D:rolleyes:
    When I was a lad, my mother and her mother would occasionally give each other "permanents" at our house, using Toni products. I'm surprised that I survived the awful smell that permeated the entire house! :eek::thumbsdown:

    Stag/Horn Knife of the Week is a Colt stag muskrat:

    Lambsfoot of the Week is a rosewood Hartshead lambsfoot Barlow SFO that I call LamBarJack:

    I think that I may have mentioned iy but I have one just like yours and it was my first GEC knife. I can't put my finger on it but it just speaks to me. One handsome knife and very utilitarian at the same time.

    @5K Qs ~ As usual, I enjoy and appreciate your comments, and I have the same memory of that wretched smell. Grandma had the decency to get her “perms” at her “beauty operator”, but Mom fell for the advertising in McCalls and House and Garden for the do it yerself and stink up the house stuff. And then how about when everybody was packed into the Mercury station wagon, and Mom had to paint her nails?:eek:
    Thanks for the memories!

    I’m going utilitarian today.

    Last year’s forum knife all week. I like this knife a lot. I’ll probably switch it up tomorrow. Here’s a pic from when it was new.
