    Spent yesterday working on this baby between changing diapers and whatnot. My attempt at a lambsfoot... Friction folder, black walnut handle from a removal I did a while back, mystery blade steel from my mechanic, bolster made from a piece of copper pipe, and the hinge pin made from an old nail.

    Thanks, GT. The handle is maple burl and giraffe bone with copper and red G 10 spacers.

    :D:thumbsup: It just came to mind when I picked it up to put in my pocket this morning.
    No one could blame you for sticking with it.

    IMHO, I am carrying a couple nice ones. :)
    (No doubt some will disagree with me.)

    I put the RR603 Old Yeller stockman away, and put my RR1507 "A Stroke of Luck" stockman (same size as the Old Yeller) in my pocket to keep the RR1838 Moose company.
    My RR1506 "A Stroke of Luck" trapper (in its box) went into the Rollator, to match the stockman.
    I left the 'A Stroke of Luck" Canoe in the drawer, in favor of the (BTI) Old Timer 280OT Barlow that was already in the Rollator.
    (Old Yeller trapper was taken out of Rollator and put away.)
    SK Blades 'The Gentleman" Buck 110 stayed in the Rollator, as did the Mora Classic Number 1.
    The Marbles MR417 (2 blade) Folding Hunter is still on my belt.

    2 in pocket, 1 on belt, and 4 in the Rollator are "Enough", right?

    Nope, you need to figure out a way to pack more steel somewhere...

    Haven’t decided which stockman will be with me this weekend. These are just the customs. Prolly another 15 or so productions but I think I’ll stick with one of these.

    Thank you for your complements and likes!

    It's a 06247 model, 8 dots 1972, 3 7/8 long. 2 blades on a single spring, it's very pocket friendly. I got it as unused condition. Very nice! I'm carrying it quite often and a patina is developing on it now. I have some 6347's 3 blade Stockman, there is always one secondary never gets used. So this time, I go for 2 blades.

    Should be OK if you don't encounter any of those highway weigh stations while you're rolling. :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    Joey, I say go with the AC Warren. I love how trim it looks and don’t recall seeing you post that as one of your carries before.

    I said on an earlier post that I was going to carry this one :
    Then I also grabbed this one . As an aside , my wife and I were cleaning the Rover the Robot vacuum and we needed a knife for something and she said " Oh no , not that one , it is too sharp " .
    She does know the knife well .

    To be completely honest, we weren't quite playing at the moment I snapped the picture. We were waiting on several stragglers to join us so we could begin. I don't think I could hold my cards and my knife and play successfully (though that sounds like the makings of a country song--"Held onto my blade, while he cut the deck / He said 'Are you in, fella', and I said, 'what the heck!")
