    In the vain of carrying one tool around for a long time,
    and satisfying my need for variety... I'm going back to a "user" group.
    My daily tote will be picked from these knives, giving variety but allowing for some bonding.
    You might notice that they are my favorites and I've already bonded with each one of them... my usual's.

    It's been too long since I pocketed a nice older Schrade, so I grabbed this Walden 880 Kon-Kav from the mid to late 1960s.

    Put them in a brown paper bag or in a cardboard box and stash them in a dark closet or under a bed. They'll ripen up nicely.

    Maybe slice thin after peeling and fry like green tomatoes or pickle them?

    These 2 with fall colored bones seemed appropriate for today. The leaves have been exceptionally brilliant around here this fall, a real treat to behold.
    A yellow bone Winchester moose pattern and a orange bone Rough Rider stockman. I enjoy knives that hit that sweet spot in pull strength and smoothness of opening without half stops. These two fit that category nicely for me.

    I can understand not wanting to carry the same knife every day but I did in fact carry this one every day from when I bought it in 1961 until I retired in 2001 .

    That blush means they’ve already gotten all they need from the vine, so like Ed says, let them lay around awhile.
    We love butternuts and acorn squash!

    I assume this “full” picture was moved out of this thread by a mod because it had a Spyderco in it? BTW, I see numerous pictures in this thread that have accompanying items with the traditional knife, such as flashlights, pens etc. But I don’t see those posts being moved out of this thread into another.

    Is this better?
