Wow, I guess I haven’t been on the forum in a bit. Just saw this notification. LolThis Opinel looks great! How did you do it?
Congrats my friend . Very nice gifts from a very generous guy who has a certain artistic style of decorating knife handles and slips that I certainly admire . Carry them in good health my friend . Very nice photo I might add .Went on a prairie walk today with my dogs, carried a fantastic gift from Greg, aka Sunknife he gifted me two Russell Green River fixed blades that came as kits and he put Osage on one and Black Locust on the other as well as a excellent handmade sheath I'll show post more pic's in the near future.
Carried the Russell Green River fixed blade with my Ancient 2.0 TC today Thanks Greg
Before the pandemic, I volunteered in our church nursery 1 or 2 Sundays per month, and always had a SAK with me. It was useful many times for the variety of tasks you mention, as well as replacing batteries in parent pagers, and just being an attention-grabber for an unhappy kid!They may not be as good looking as a lot of the knives that get posted here, but there's not much else that is as practical as a SAK for someone at home doing dad duty. I've already used the corkscrew to untie a stubborn knot, the screwdriver to tighten a screw on a toy, and the blade to slice some snacks.
Picked this up the other day. First production none collab knife I’ve gotten in awhile. Man this thing is sweet. Assembled perfectly also. The half stops and threading set it off just perfectly. The color is awesome. I’m tickled. Straight into the pocket she goes.

New to me Buck 301 and a Challenge Cutco
Congrats on the new knives, guys!
Striking photo! (I have no idea how to make a pic like that, with color foreground and B&W background. )
Sensational pair of pens, JJ!
All four are spectacular, José, especially the top and bottom knives with the little man on the blade!
You have great taste, LT! I have a 1975 model of that canoe, and I think it is the only knife I own that I haven't been able to bring myself to use (so far).
Thanks, John. I have another just like it except with autumn brown pick bone (or something like that). I'm very pleased with both of those Chinese Klaas knives.Really neat looking handles.
They should call it Lava Bone.
Great knife, but be careful, Vince! The first canoe I ever bought was scheduled to get a 1-week tryout, and the next thing I knew, I had to force myself to give another knife a turn a month later! Didn't take much to turn me into a canoesseur.I don't usually like etches on my blades, but I love that one. I bought a Case canoe last year, but haven't carried it much. Gonna tote it this weekend.
Great gift, Gary; you're a good buddy! May I show your post to my wife periodically throughout the coming year? My next birthday will be my 70th, and I'm not above using some blatant hints.I always liked the etch on that Canoe. I had one that I gifted to an old Air Force buddy of mine on his 70th birthday.
Thanks for the Stag-o-Rama, Jack!Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend Issard Violon with my Hartshead Barlow today
Notable pair, Jeff! 50 or 60 years ago, we'd have said that even the smooth one was groovy!
Always nice to see LamBar get his time in the pocket.
Gary, yours is the second Hartshead Barlow (aka LamBarJack) I've seen today. Beautiful wood on yours.
Thanks, John & Dean & JJ. I don't usually consider myself a Barlow fan, but I'm sure a fan of the rosewood HHB!Very cool threesome Gary; your LamBarJack is especially appealing!
Useful pair, John! I'm enjoying your thread on medium jacks; how do you like your 33 penknife compared to your Case medium jack?
Quality quartet, Greg! Today the Keen Kutter is my favorite (and I really like that Airstream trailer cut-out, whatever it's for).Busy day for me yesterday and never posted my pic of yesterdays pairing, a 2008 #54 Harness Jack and an older KeenKutter jack.
For today I selected a Boker Club Knife and a Tidioute #29 Stockyard Whittler to pocket. Have a great weekend porch folk.

Thanks for the ID, John. I'd say that's my favorite Case medium stockman (unless you call the x347 a medium - then I might have to flip a coin).It's an #18, with a full clip blade.
Vibrant vintage Barlow, Dean, and a massive knot!
Thanks for the confirmation.Thank you! Yep, it's a well worn pen blade.
Your red Alox old cross SAK is first-rate!Catching up on some reading today
That you have your grandfather's old knife, and a substitute to carry is wonderful, Jeff!...
Thanks, Gary! My Grandpa carried an identical knife. I have it now, but the secondary’s spring is broken, and it’s retired in honor. I casually looked for one for years until I saw this carryable version of Grandpa’s knife. Here it is with his ancient Speingfield double:

Notable pairs you've posted, José and JJ!
Splendid knife, Frank! I have to learn the relationships among rail splitters, cattle knives, and stockman knives.Queen Rail Splitter
Congrats on your new TC Barlow, Paul! I like that ritzy Tinker, too.Hoffritz tang stamp (70's) small Tinker and Charlie's latest
Are those REAL? Is this a dream?
Thank you, José.Beautiful trio, Gary.
Three good 'uns there Gary
Wishing everyone a peaceful and pleasant Sunday I'm going posh!
Nice Mustard #56.
Thank you, GT.Useful pair, John!
Me too.I'm enjoying your thread on medium jacks
Completely different knives.how do you like your 33 penknife compared to your Case medium jack?
