Must be a tough one if it compares to the mighty TL-29!These two today. I have the week off, so the chore list is stacking up. The Trestle Pine is proving to be a capable worker, holding its own up against the TL-29.
Have a great one!
Funny you mention charcuterie. We had a craft sale in the barn at the farm before Christmas. I used my limited skills to make a bunch of crafts.I am carrying others as well (of course) but I just got this German Linder tuxedo sampler which I will have in my pocket for awhile. All steel and stabilized (rosewood?) covers, one spring, half stops and sharp ( a rare thing for a new knife). Now I need to scare up some victuals for 'sampling.' I am thinking New Year's Eve will be a good test- charcuterie, cheeses; I may not need it for the mini marshmallows in the cocoa. Who said anything about hot buttered rum, anyway?

Me too, love real snow, but plenty of the fake stuff around here also. We come here (NW corner of IL) once a year to ski, and it snows (real snow) every time. No landfills, just skiing down the bluffs of the Mississippi River, and drinking some pretty good local brew!I’m no Matlock, but I detect that you must be on a trip. Your profile says Illinois, but you are skiing on slopes. The only ski slopes around here are man made - usually a big pile of landfill with a little dirt and sod topped with white stuff from a snow machine. Nothing to brag about!
But when your first post mentioned 9” of snow predicted, I got excited. I’m a little kid at heart.
I know where you are. Maybe Chestnut?Me too, love real snow, but plenty of the fake stuff around here also. We come here (NW corner of IL) once a year to ski, and it snows (real snow) every time.

Yep, got our skiing in early today, the snow is just beginning, also talking sleet and maybe a light glaze of ice. Snow is no big deal but the ice is a different story altogether. Truck is parked, we’ll be walking the rest of the day!I know where you are. Maybe Chestnut?
The kids and grandkids love the tobaggan runs. Well, we all do.
Thanks a lot, Jack!!!Many thanks JJ, nice pair there, I always enjoy seeing that tortoiseshell acrylic
You have an excellent cutter and a classic bottle opener, now all you need is a frosty beverage; hope your back is on the mend, too!Hope everyone's week got off to a reasonable start. I'm still stuck on the sofa, posting from my phone Sticking with my Hartshead Barlow
Thank you, Michael, for your compliments.I've admired the Mini Copperheads and that is a nice one; that jack is off the charts though.
Love the bone on both of these!
Still this old friend for another day.
Thanks for the reminder... I need to purchase a Pocket Hunter before they disappear.
