    Thanks Gary! The Field Master was a gift from my then girlfriend-now-wife thirty years ago! She knew I’d prefer the saw and didn’t need the corkscrew!

    Our remote camera snapped a photograph of this curious doe a few weeks ago. Looks like the camera was not as well hidden as I thought!

    Have a Blessed Sunday everyone.

    Totin’ my favorite 86 version today. GEC made them for Percy Richardson and Lone Star Knives. Percy had some beautiful designs over the years, many of them with wood from famous battleships. Part of the profits went to support museums honoring the ships.

    Yes, @bigfish64 , it is a single blade. That is why I like it so much. They also made a few single blades for Charlie @waynorth which were the best of all, but I could not get one of those. The Northwoods version was also a single blade.

    My grandma passed away August 22, at the age of 90. Today would have been her 91st birthday. I'm going to be thinking about her today as I carry this Boker she gave me about 15 years ago that was her father's. I'm not sure the age of it, but it has been around a while. It was only fitting to pose it with the Christmas cactus she started for me that is off her mother's. That plant is still alive over 100 years later. She was a great example of a Godly, loving Grandmother. Thankful I had her for 34 years. I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

    Great picture, the Virginia coast is a lot more hospitable than the Oregon coast which usually translates as less photogenic. I miss Virginia, spent about a year between Hampton and Charlottesville, longest stay anywhere out of Alaska and Oregon for me.

    Thanks for the informative reply. :)

    That's a handsome, rich example of how good Harvest Orange can be! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Superb pair, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I'm always impressed with your lighting in winter. Do you manage to find sunshine most days, or have you got an artificial light shining?

    Cool scout, Tony! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: I got one like that at an antique store almost exactly a year ago (3/7/20) on a Saturday; coronavirus hit the fan the following week, and I credit the Kamp King with helping me survive the massive changes that occurred in the week following my purchase! :rolleyes:

    Peerless pen knife, Les! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Jon, you're a persuasive proponent of the "saber grind gospel"! :D:cool::cool:

    Thanks for the info. :) I was convinced that the sheepsfoot on my Electrician was a chisel grind, but I checked it and it's not. :oops: Must have been thinking of the sheepsfoot on my Vic Gardener.

    Yeah, the older I get, the scarier life is! :p
    Maybe you need to "layer" your vests to provide more pockets! :thumbsup::thumbsup::D
    Certainly seems true for me that my favorite knives are the ones I'm actually using. I've got several tree branches drying in the garage with the hope that I'll turn them into walking sticks, but I'm not even sure what style I want. Almost all of my branches would become canes rather than shoulder/head high staffs (staves?).

    Quite a pack of bulldogs on your stag 5-blader! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    That's a pleasing pruner, José! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Proficient pair, Jon, and primo photo! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the follow-up, Greg. :) Your grandson is doing some impressive work! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Safe travels, Jeff! :):cool::cool:

    Thanks for the info about your "micarta journey" and the "flock of chickens" you've raised in that rock. :)

    Elite edges, Joshua! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Sweet pair of keys, and thanks for the tune! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I happen to have a Camillus peanut like that, so I could recognize it. ;)
    I also have a Winchester identical to your Sunday-go-to-meeting knife, so I could recognize that one, too (although I haven't memorized the model number :rolleyes:). :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    They’re both sweet Gary, thanks.
    Not a simple Winchester number I’m afraid...
    I can never remember it myself.

    cool story! Getting through this is the trick—getting out on the hiking trails or to the high desert has kept us going.

    My Kamp King was actually given to my then 7 year old son by an older gent selling knives at a local knife show. My son was a Cub Scout and keen on camping and hiking, and the man decided to make my son’s day. Now he’s 11 and hikes/ does outdoor activities with me regularly. These days he’ll use the knife to cut veggies for his feeder insects, which eventually get fed to his Bearded Dragon and Leopard Gecko. That’s his way of making it through this.
