I've been carrying my red bone Case 06247 the past two days. I've been finishing out some 1x4 trim on my back patio, and had to trim some old dried caulk and paint off a piece of 1x2 trim that I was putting back up. Out came the Case...worked like a champ.
When putting up the new 1x4 stuff, I had to notch the end of one of them to fit.... I may be the only person in history to baton a Case pen blade into the endgrain of a 1x4. :thumbsup: I'll have to googly it to see, but I'm betting I'm the first... I was just too lazy to go find my wood chisel, and this little scrap would have almost just snapped off, but... why pass up an opportunity? :cool: It's been a "2 Case" carry couple of days.... the red swayback jack is in the watch pocket.

This is the carpenter's helper I used...

Many thanks JJ. Such a gorgeous pair of Queens. I especially love the blade on the top one, not to mention the covers on both. Wonderful image.
Thanks a bunch, Harvey!!!

Still don't think this is rotten banana bone. I'm about to eat the lower one.

Because schools are closed I have to provide teaching at home for my pupils.
I'm a practical teacher in gardening, so it's quite a challenge to teach this through the screen...
But totday I tought them the theory behind pollarding and coppicing, the comanion for this is an old beat up victorinox Gak, which I put new padauk scales on and changed the knifeblade for an old sentinel blade I had laying around. Had to trim the bladeshape a bit to fit in the 108mm frame so ended up with a lambsfoot-like blade, all in all a nice knife I don't ever baby...

Nice Wusthoff. Nice to see somebody carving on wood instead of ceramic.

Coppicing! I was going to do that here.
I always thought pollarding was a bizarre aesthetic practice. Is it useful? Duh, heard of google, Jer?

Well pollarding is a cultural thing here in Belgium/Flanders. It's done to create tiny microhabitats for animals Athene noctua or bats. It's also a good way to collect firewood in a sustainable way and it gives the tree, in our cases willow and poplar a greater lifepsan than it would have just growing on its own. Hazel isn't pollarded in our region but coppiced and oak or beech can be pollarded but has a greater cycle in pollarding 10 years in between cutting in stead of 3 to 5 for willow.

I should have known I wouldn't be right for a change. But bats- ew.
Thanks.

Among the knives I'm carrying this week are the ones posted here. I'll post representatives of other categories in my weekly carry rotation throughout the week, the Lord willing and the creek don't rise.
Alox Knife of the Week is a black Pioneer (pictured with a silver Electrician I'm NOT carrying this week):

non-Alox SAK of the Week is a pre-owned Huntsman I picked up at a gun&knife show almost 5 years ago:
huntsman.open.jpg

Bailed non-SAK of the Week is a Rough Rider scout knife. I think it's my 3rd of this model; I keep giving them away and then buying another:

International Knife of the Week is a burnt boxwood Taramundi I bought in Sevilla, Spain in late December 2014:

Good morning y’all! :) I’m carrying these today. I’ve got a Schrade 804 Whittler and a Wright’s wee Sambar Lambsfoot. :thumbsup: :)

My random carry today is a Camillus Pen knife. Advertising Monroe Hardware from 1983. I believe that Stuart D Duckdog said that Monroe Hardware was still in business. Located of course in Monroe NC! :D
