    Thanks for the kind words my friends, much appreciated. :) Paul, looks like you have the same weather and snowfall as we have here. Although if this is as bad as it gets this winter It'll be fine with me, the next 6-8 weeks always seem to pass the slowest though.

    Nice Henkels!

    I swapped out my Capuchadu for my "poor man's Zulu" this afternoon.

    Thanks Gary, I was fortunate to have a friend help me with the TC, and the Ritz is a re-store for me as it came to me in a bad way. I like putting a knife back into service:)

    Not really a daily tote as it rarely finds its way into my pocket, the unassuming Case Pen Knife is likely my most-used traditional. Mainly used to cut apples, oranges and the occasional cheese for daily snacks. The blades now have a very dark grey patina.

    And my pocket carry for the upcoming week is the Shuffler, with the black Alox Cadet still on key ring duty.

    Thanks, Gary. But a weekend tryout is enough. I love the way the canoe looks, but we just don't "click," like I do with trappers and stockmans. I really dig clip blades: trappers, stockmans, Laguioles, and Opinels especially. Opinel in my pocket now; stockman in the morning, probably.

    The Case Pen is really a perfect pocket knife in so many ways. If I didn’t have so many more “interesting” knives I’d carry mine daily. Or, if Case would offer it in more cover materials.
    It carries about the same as a Peanut and is practically the same length as a Barlow. The secondary blade tilts downward in such a way that gives good control when using the tip. Best of all it’s a single spring

    For me and my hands, the pen knife is a love/ hate relationship. Almost too small for my hands and fingers to safely grip, but I like the blades. Main blade is slicey enough to make short work of fruit when I get around to any cutting. I know Case (and a few others) make a smaller pen knife - I can't even imagine trying to use one myself.

    It's a bit funny that the smaller Pocket Hunters fit my hands better than the Pen due to the shaped and slightly higher handle.

    Thanks! The folding hunter is one of my favorite Case patterns. Very hard to beat - especially in CV!
