Thanks :) I like it too.
I have quite a few carbon JJ Martinez knives, all of them I've finished in varying degrees, they are made to a good enough standard for a working tool but it's usually pretty easy to finish them much better than as they come. I visited the workshop of the two brothers who make them last year & still haven't posted the pics.........

That model is probably my favorite of all the lockbacks I have! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Is that some kind of belt/pocketedge hanger on the bail?

Yes, the Mercator is about as basic as a lockback can get, tough knife. :thumbsup:. Pocket hanger made from a teaspoon handle. :eek:

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?

Thanks Gary ! We have our share of sunny day in the winter and more this year than most. It is overcast today however and no artificial light. It does help reflect light when there's snow on the ground. ;)

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.

I can see why it’s your favorite; that’s a thing of beauty! I’d be scared to use it o_O

I seem to be stuck on this one the last few days....

Today’s carry was the 29 and this beefy 23.

To add to the growing list of uses for the 29, I am now adding ice pick. The punch was able to pick away at the 2-3” of ice that formed around my wiper blades and crack it enough to then remove it. He’s becoming a handy lil fella!!

Thanks for the copperlock compliment, Dean. :) I bought something called liquid bandage last week for my finger cracks, but I think superglue works better for me.

Elegant elk Buck, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::cool:
