    Wishing everyone an enjoyable and gratitude-filled Thanksgiving! :thumbsup::):thumbsup:
    I appreciate the info and compliment, JJ. :)

    Vintage classics! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for all your contributions on The Porch, Jack, including the photos of so many fascinating knives, such as that ivory penknife. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I'm enjoying the pile-side pics of your stag HHB that you've been posting recently.:)

    That's a charming blue pruner, José! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    That harness jack has colorful acrylic, John! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    For me, that's a key question, Jer, that I answer with a resounding, "Not much!", and pocket another knife. :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Is that 861 an ancestor of the 61OT? I agree that it's a wonderful pattern (I have a Chinese 61OT) that carries surprisingly well for such a large stockman. :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Great fall colors on that Barlow, Dean, and the matching stamps on tang and bolster are very cool! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Looks like a Good Day at Black Rock, Gev!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Beautiful!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Congrats on the handsome pair of new folders, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Always enjoy the pics of knives on the rocks, Tom; that TC is entrancing! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    I certainly use the phrase "Alox pox", but I didn't originate it; I think I first read it on the multitools subforum. Good luck with making a sheath; I'd eventually like to make a simple pocket slip with lacing instead of stitching. Thanks for the comment on my leather shoe lace lanyard; I had to remember how to make a 3-strand braid (I couldn't come up with the 4-strand pattern I originally wanted :rolleyes:), including how to "back-braid" the end.

    Definitely a situation in which good things come in small packages, Stuart! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Striking photo of a knife that's always appealed to me! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    That's a handful of Western there, Harry; you could harvest a Christmas tree with that big boy! ;):cool::cool:

    I like a Rough Rider sowbelly stockman! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Big Iron! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Champion choices, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    You have some very distinguished black single-blade spears, John! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Well-said, Jeff! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Nice to see your classic constant companions, Jeff! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Intriguing knife, Alan! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    That BF congress jack looks so elegant to me, Ted! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Makes sense; thanks for the info. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Good to hear your opinion on the Imperial sodbusters, Jack. :):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Hope for the best, prepare for the worst! :eek:;):rolleyes:

    Oops! :rolleyes: Thanks for the correction, Dean. :)

    Sounds like you're a man with a plan, Tom. :):cool::cool:
    That Remington scout is desirable! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I always like the shields that are "real things", including that wrench, instead of "abstract shapes". ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: Did you ever notice how we tend to refer to the abstract shields by names of real things the shapes sort of remind us of?

    Hurrah for the return of Two TEWs Tuesday! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Dynamite duo, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool:


    That's another ancient beauty, Harvey! :cool::thumbsup::cool: My eyes are having trouble with the tang stamp; who made that knife?

    Lovely little pen knife!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the Boswell quote, Will. :cool:;):thumbsup: I haven't travelled very much, but I have seen the Mediterranean from Denia, Spain, so I guess I've achieved the "grand object". :):thumbsup::thumbsup: Speaking of "grand objects", that is a stunning Lionsteel! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That black lip pearl is striking! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Congrats on a couple of capital knives!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    A couple of intriguing open Cases you're investigating, Stuart! ;):cool::cool:

    Old School is the Best School! Sublime Case stockmans, LT & OH!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Pre-holiday preparations made me forget Wooden Wednesday! :eek::(:mad: I'm glad you didn't, JJ; terrific timbered twosome! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    That Tackler's Knife is a favorite, Jack!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I hope if you get it that you'll enjoy yours as much as I do mine! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Couple of grand gifts, Gary! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I hope you can clear up that infection ASAP, Jer! :thumbsup::thumbsup: Doesn't turkey soup have fabled recuperative benefits? ;)

    Couple of charismatic cattle knives!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Great to see that old scout pattern again, Buzz! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, Jeff and everyone else! :):thumbsup::)

    Thank you, GT.
    The Tomato HJ was a generous gift from @knowtracks :cool::thumbsup:

    Even though a spear blade isn't my favorite, every time I see a spear blade paired with black wood it just speaks to me. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends on the Porch.
    Going to carry "my knife" today. If I tell my kids to get "my knife", they know exactly which one to grab.
    Today's a day for being thankful, spending time with family, watching football, and eating too much good food. Hope it's a good one for all of you.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope your day is filled with fun, family, friends and good food! We have a lot to be thankful for.
    I just filled the bird feeders and threw a scoopful of seed on the ground for the wild turkeys. I feed them and today, one of their domesticated relatives, many times removed, feeds my family. Seems fair to me!

    Just looked down and realized this Remington could possibly be useful today.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    PSA ~ cook fowl / pork to a minimum of 160 degrees for it to be safe to eat. Turkey was 15 lbs and cooked faster than I thought. Gotta be careful, don't want dry breasts! The boston butt weighed about half as much but took twice as long to get to tender temp of 194. Injected with apple juice it is something to be thankful for! Used GEC SS kitchen knife during prep, cooked in Cookshack PG500 pellet smoker.
