Today with Case mini trapper in stag and blue scroll on blade.
Went on a hike this morning as the weather was pretty nice for a change. I brought my mini Grip with me and my Case mini trapper. Which has veen my main carry for the last few weeks.
The weather was amazing
As the forest I hiked through was close to the North sea you still come across some signs and remnants of ww2. This is part of the Atlantic wall the Germans build during ww2.
Can't wait for Autumn to arrive, might be an even better combination with the orange jigged bone handle.
Great pattern and I think the Camel-Bone is my favourite, it's a tough choice mind as all the options are so good I see you've opted for matte look on the bolsters, I'm the opposite, every matte finish bolster I get always visits the strop, even CASE/Bose Collabs This would exclude that ludicrous Sausage Comb bauble GEC are successfully peddling though, I wouldn't give it house room But, I like it shiny
I like the chunky, stout feel of the Camel Bone GEC#62, sure it only comes in polished/glossy bolsters. It’s I who made it matte finish by hand . for me, in a matte finish the scars and scratch marks are less visible, and we can use ‘em knives freely.
Agree that glossy shiny has it’s charm too
Good morning! I’ve put these in my pocket for today. A Northfield Jigged Bone #48 Improved Trapper is keeping my Wright’s Ebony large Lambsfoot company. Y’all stay safe out there!
Tibia Tuesday. (Get it? )
I’ll probably only use one... but I want to carry both .
These peasant's knives are just so lovely and usefull. Today I have the Antonini with me.
That looks like a practical pairing Paul
Hope everyone's week is going OK, so far. Got my Hartshead Barlow, and a Camillus What-A-Knife, gifted to me by Barrett @btb01 , today
Totin these today~ GEC Oregon Trapper, and a well worn, but still tight ‘n snappy High Carbon cattle knife.
And I snagged this one off the kitchen counter because I have some horticultural activities planned.
Camillus 14 and Oak and Inox #6 Opinel.
Thanks! The dogleg, pointed butt bolster, and slender spear were what piqued my interest. Happily the fit and finish were solid as well as the fine looks.
Same, but in stag. Thanks, Ed!
Some days the schedule is tight and you need to maximize all moments if you want to get your porch participation in.
I've heard it only takes 3 seconds to microwave a poptart- might help get a little time in that schedule!
(beautiful knife though.)
The Italian Stanleyan again, with all the pocket-tool I need.
Two for Tuesday. One in the pocket. One on the belt.
Thanks Jack! Ditto back at you pal!
Thanks for your reactions to your fine new saddle horn, Chuck.
I'm a little slow - I didn't catch your "on the fence" comment until the second time I looked at your post. Boffo Buck big stockman, Dean!
A couple of pairs of astonishing aged aces, JJ!
Thanks, Jeff. Probably not so impressive when you consider that the total was spread from 4:30am to 8:30 pm, so an average speed of less than 1 MPH! And I never walked more than 3 miles without stopping to do something else: a little over a mile buying groceries and putting them away; 3 miles home to office, then desk work for 30 minutes; 2 miles to the doctor, almost an hour spent sitting around there, then 2 miles back to office; after more work at desk, 3 miles from office to home; and another mile of evening chores.
Quite an adventure for that knife, Alan! The textured handles are very appealing!
I enjoyed the pics of your nice knives and your companionable canine, Jeff!
Very cool photo, Dean!
Thanks, Dean & JJ; Jack Black got some incredible ironwood for his SFO lambsfoot.
Thanks for the Scruton synopsis, Joshua. One of the reviews I skimmed characterized Scruton as a Christian neoplatonist, a position for which I have a lot of sympathy.
The Abbeydale Jack is a fitting complement to your stag HHB, Jack!
Forbidden fruit, eh!?!
Sweet pair, Steve; that golden cattle knife is especially inspirational!!
Grand grain on the covers of both those knives, Jon! I think the 23 would probably be too much knife for my lifestyle!
Beguiling bonestag Barlow, Dean!
Beauteous blade and brew, Dave!
I like 2-blade toothpicks, and your ebony #12 is ravishing, Duane!
