    Thank you. I got it from a clock guy in Herkimer NY.

    Hard to beat that 33/34 frame from Schrade GT. I once owned the Uncle Henry 833 Prairie Jack version - a sweet knife that I gave to an old boss who used to take me bird hunting every season. Thanks for the compliment on my knife - really enjoying the GEC Calf Roper and have wanted a non-celluloid faux tortoise shell knife for a long time. Not the same fishing trip, I was Speck fishing just off the ICW when I took the picture with the GEC 66 and my lures. The “Mug Shot“ picture was taken while Hickory Shad fishing on the Trent River last February or March. OH

    Splendid Winchester Stockman Will. I’ve had an itch for one of those for several years and I plan to scratch that itch soon! OH

    Thank you so much, Gary. Yes, they are very good, they have a problem because as they are friction close, the ones that do not have a lock close very easily.:):thumbsup:

    Many thanks, Gary! This morning I've got my jigged bone Calf Roper in pocket.

    Thanks for the ideas, Will. A number of times this year, I've watched a young red-tailed hawk hunting the Monk Parakeets that live in the neighborhood. Perhaps that would be a good subject for a scrim. :)
    Ah! I didn't think it had been in the box very long. Thanks again!
    To tell the truth, I did most of my pencil whittling with an x-acto knife. I'm afraid this Jumbo is too big for that kind of detail.

    Pondering these 2 for todays pocket carry as I enjoy morning coffee. Poor indoor lighting and photography skills make the scales look bland but the wood and bone are actually quite nice looking in hand. Coffee - 1.jpeg

    @5K Qs Thank you, GT! You are correct about the second knife; it was made by Larry Withrow. I picked it up here in the Knife Maker's Exchange. It is absolutely fantastic!

    I really like them too. I often find myself giving them away though.

    Thank you, Jack. She is home and resting well. :)

    I have to carry them in separate pockets. ;)

    One of my all-time favorite Jacks.
    I carried the Middleman Jack and Stockman all through High School (memories).
    Perfect size knife to shove in a pocket and very useful blades. Hope you enjoy yours as well. :cool::thumbsup:
