Pocket pair for this week - Boker Grenadill Barlow and SAK Recruit.
Got this in the mail today. Case 11031 SH. 1973 year model in walnut.
I posted this before, so bear with me if y’all already know it...
A chisel grind is for use with live plants. Not exclusively, of course, because they are also the grind to use for precision cuts along a straight edge or other guide. But in the case of the Florist, sheepfoot or hawkbill, it’s safe to say it’s to protect the plant. The flat edge ~ opposite the chisel ground edge ~ goes toward the plant, and the ground side toward the part being cut off. The flat edge slices cleanly with no microscopic crushing, which is especially important in grafting.
I’m not a grafter, but I always use one of my Vic pruners on any vegt plants at the farm. (Also important to sanitize ~ I use alcohol on a rag~ between plants for plant health.
Chisel grinds are easy to sharpen.
That walnut looks nice.
Thank you, Mike.
This for today, though I don't know how much longer as I've got some new additions on the way.
Nice whittler What sort of bone.?
Beautiful boker, it could be mistaken for a custom.
IMHO for factory production knives, Boker did a really nice job on these.
Your two Barlows look mighty nice together; love the hammered pins on both your beauties!
Apple Habanero Jelly. Nectar of the gods.
That does look awesome Gary!
Toting these two today, both from Titusville, PA.
Red whittler day here.
Black Mamba has pointed out that this S.C.C. Uncle Henry was made by Camillus 1979-1982.
It was originally white smooth bone, but my hands were stained with leather dye and it leached off.
I like it, but good advise, i have a smooth white bone on the way. i better be careful if i want to keep it white.
All these fantastic knives being posted is doing my head in. Only jokin' keep em coming.
