    Some of you are toting some superlative cutlery. I, on the other hand, will be observing Thrifty Thursday, otherwise known as cheap knife day.:D
    This Sabre grandaddy barlow was a budget knife when it was new, but it’s a darned solid knife, takes a scary edge, and I personally love the sawcut bone scales.
    I’ve gotten burned on my last three online knife purchases due to sellers either actively concealing things, or simply not mentioning flaws.
    But I look at it like this ~ These dishonest sellers put a price on their honor, but I’m just out a few bucks.

    This Schrade Walden 294 was listed as “made in USA”. It wasn’t. :mad:

    But it was cheap enough (especially compared to an actual vintage 294) that it was not worth sending back. And darn it, I like it!:eek::D Real bone, good snap, smooth w&t. Someone had scratched up the blade with coarse sandpaper, but they failed to completely removed the etch saying “75th Anniversary 1936-2011”, which a magnifying glass revealed. Combined with no USA on the tang told me I’d been a sucker. I almost disassembled it to use the springs, but I’ve got too many other half finished projects right now. So I carefully polished out the damage to the blade, put a proper back bevel and edge on it, and tossed it in my knife drawer where I’d see it every time I opened it. Every once in a while I’d play with it and try to decide what to do with it. Eventually, I came around to liking it, and instead of giving it away or busting it up for parts, put it in my pocket. I’m liking it so far.
    So, a decent user. Certainly not collectable. Oh well. I’m not a collector anyway, and I’m too old to start!:D I think I should do something about that missing shield, and maybe dye the bone... 48FC95D1-0B63-4457-BFFA-E3830375F512.jpeg 1484C422-2F6C-40D7-B4D9-BFFD8080C812.jpeg Have a great day!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I’m not going to pretend carrying all these is pragmatic BUT it is fun.

    Lovely stag, Jose’, and enough wear and tear to give it real character. Love it!

    That’s a fistful ‘o fun!

    As promised...
    This is one of the kits I made up for each of my vehicles.
    Flashlight, pen, notebook, SAK Tinker for tools, and Buck 112 for heavy cutting.
    Of course I always have a pocket knife on my person, but these are available for handy backups.

    Sorry the cover materials aren't more "traditional".

    I always carry one of those maxpedition micro’s in my pocket. They are great.

    The little tag of the left side works well to hold a small knife. I keep a small schrade stockman in mine.

    Thanks! That's a handy little "emergency bag". I'd probably add some sanitizer and spare mask. ;)
    Most of the stuff on the 3x5 cards are just to-do lists, shopping lists, etc. but I have to sort through them before throwing any out, in case I also wrote down something important like phone numbers.
    The Case Teardrop is one of those knives I rediscover from time to time and think "Why don't I carry this one more often?"
    Luscious pair! :thumbsup:
