    Well Charlie @waynorth , I now know what a real genuine XX Red Bone is all about. I had to go to the Case Wizard of Wando, South Carolina, Tony Foster, to find one. You really do know one when you see it. Thanks @Txjohn for the introduction.

    That is actually the top of my large green trash can sitting in the garage.

    I’ve been carrying this one for a few days. I’m a sucker for a knife with two full-size blades. :D

    Two more oldies for Tuesday, both from Hammer Brand (Imperial 1938-41.) :)

    I finally got this Joker Pastora. It is actually better than I thought. There are no large gaps anywhere in the handle, some small ones but I can live with those. The steel is mediocre, but was easy to sharpen and the edge had a working sharpness as it came. The handle is real horn (cheaper models have a handle made of ABS). The lock is surprisingly solid, no blade play in any direction, but I will treat this as a light use knife anyway. The action is not as smooth as in higher quality knives but still good enough, no grittiness. Only thing that really matters is that the lever rattles when closed. I wonder if it would be possible to tighten the lever pivot somehow? But this is a small flaw.

    I had to write a small story about how I would like to use the knife.

    "We rose out of the small convertible car we had rented. The scenery was fantastic up in the mountains, almost clear sky, with the sea and the river walley below. Spring weather was not too hot, but nice and warm. I carried a basket filled with food and other things we needed for our picknick to the table on the roadside resting place.

    I snapped open the small navaja and cut some fresh bread, cheese and sausages, while she opened a bottle of spanish red wine. We smiled at each other over the glasses and took a sip. The fresh food and wine tasted delicious. I admired her long blonde hair and blue eyes. The small wrinkles around her eyes looked endearing and her figure was slim despite her age.

    After the picknick and a walk in the mountains we drove to the small town where we stayed. I had reserved a table in a restaurant for a dinner. In the hotel we dressed up. I thought for a second and then put the knife on the table but took my panama hat and walking cane. We walked through the ancient streets to the restaurant. A man was playing a guitar, we knew that later there would be a flamenco show, something that I had allways admired.

    Later we walked back to the hotel in the darkness, lighted by streetlamps. On an old stone bridge I paused in the moonlight to give her a kiss. The night was warm and there were bright stars on the clear sky."

    That's an appealing knife, Bruce; I like the blade combo and that distinctive Böker "finger-groove" jigging! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Terrific trio, Alan! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Looking good, John! :cool::thumbsup::cool:


    Thanks for the encouragement; I need to get more systematic about checking some of the local possibilities. :)

    Phenomenal pair, Steve! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I usually prefer your vintage bone knives, but that ebony Churchill is quite a prize!

    Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:

    Congrats on your new great granddaughter, Harry! :):thumbsup::cool: Auspicious pair of stag knives you carried to meet her! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Nice Imperial/Case/geode combo, Dennis! :cool::thumbsup::cool: I hope your back makes a fast comeback.

    That's probably good, right? ;)

    What a notable pair, JJ! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Sorry to hear about the botched engraving, Jack. :(
    Quite a difference in "energy levels" in the backgrounds for your HHB and your soupy TC! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Grabbed the Craftsman yesterday morning (thought I was grabbing the Case 6332 - close in size and shape in the dark). Got to cut a fair amount of mono yesterday - water was low in the river, snagged several rigs and the fellow I was fishing with forgot his pocketknife - had to let him cut his tags as well. Still don't think we wore it out! OH
