    Scintillating scout, Tom! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Do you have citations for those studies, Jeff? I could use those in a stats class! :D:thumbsup:

    You're nothing but a knife floozy, Mike! :rolleyes::cool::cool:

    Thanks, JJ. :) Don't know if you can see it, but there's a red spot near the butt of the pile side on the buffalo horn lambsfoot that I call "the eye of the tiger". :rolleyes:

    JJ, Dee, Les, and @Magizm7 : you've posted some astonishing stag! :cool::thumbsup::cool:
    With apologies to Jerry Lee Lewis:
    You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
    Too much stag drives a man insane
    You broke my will, but what a thrill
    Goodness gracious, great knives of stag

    Knife and photos are first-class, Dan; congrats to your daughter! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Good point, Jeff; maybe I need to rethink my carrying a sowbelly every day! :eek::rolleyes:

    I like the story, Dan. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I need to check out that Excelsior model that replaced the Pocket Pal.
    I certainly recommend the garden/florist knife with the chisel grind sheepsfoot. At first I thought it had strange proportions, with the blade too short for the handle. But once I got mine, I realized that the handle is "over-sized" which is great for handling the knife, rather than the blade being "under-sized"; plenty of blade for what I typically use it.

    :D I wonder if "kids these days" understand references from classical mythology?
    That pair is worth an encore performance! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    Thanks for the compliment, Jack. :)
    I look forward to wearing t-shirts and shorts during June, July, and August! :cool:
    Love the golden-brown crust on that pie, Jack! :thumbsup::thumbsup:


    Fantastic fish art, José! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, John. :)

    Those Seahawks are a bunch of Outlaws, John! ;):cool::cool:

    Really admire that slimline trapper! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Enchanting knife! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I can't let a canoe paddle by without acknowledging its desirability! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    W:eek:W, Joshua, how did you get access to a time machine?? What a pristine old gunstock! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Have a safe and rejuvenating trip, Jon! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: This Michigan boy hopes you have enough blankets for October nights, if you're sleeping under the stars! :eek:

    Now that I've retired, the snow is less of a PITA that it has been in the past. I've got all my wood piled and covered and I'm ready to sit all day in my jammies, drinking coffee or tea. I'll smile and wave at all the suckers that have to shovel out their lanes and brave the drive into work at 6am, plowing through gobs of sleet and snow.

    Outdoor work with a TL-29. I sort of abuse the screwdriver sometimes.

    It's a gem! Crazy light with the linerless construction, less than an ounce...but still solid with great action and no play:cool:

    From what I've read, the name "pocket pal" was what the "excelsior" model was sold under here in the US. They seem to have abandoned that in recent years. It's the same knife.

    There's a chisel grind on the florist's knife? hmmm... I've never really had good luck with asymmetric grinds before. Good info to have! :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Gary! I'm not sure how old that Gunstock is, but it is in fine shape in any case.
