    Getting the grill ready for steaks with my most used blade--the Dave Beck Forager. Curls to light, with sparks off a ferro rod.

    Stag/Horn Knife of the Week has been a buffalo horn GEC #85 (thanks, Paul):

    Lambsfoot of the Week has been Black Jack, my Jack Black SFO 2018 Guardians ebony lambsfoot:

    Your lamb foot is looking nice! The jigging on those is so unique. When I carry mine I find myself having it out just to look at constantly.

    I believe that test proves you are a stable genius. ;)
    Thanks, GT. I've never seen that before, either. I stepped around the plant very carefully, afraid the ice would break off before I got a picture, but it was pretty thick.
    Pairing the 'shunkle' with basic black today.

    Great looking knives, especially that little peanut! I really like mine too, but the color of yours is fantastic!;)

    Cool picture, really shows of the beautiful grain in those Osage covers!:thumbsup:

    Thank you very much Joshua, I use the same technique :D :thumbsup:

    Thank you John, stunning Sunday pair there :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info Tony, I'll have to check them out :) :thumbsup:

    Sorry for your loss, your grandma sounds like a fine lady. That's a nice keepsake :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D I layered up to sit out round the fire-pit last night, and had a total of 31 pockets! :eek: No wonder I couldn't find my gloves when I came back in :rolleyes: :D I'll be interested to see your walking sticks Gary, I have quite a few, including a couple of really old ones. Being tall, my two shop-bought staffs are shorter than I would like, so I decided to make one more to my liking :thumbsup:

    Hope your little 'un is better soon Joshua :) :thumbsup:

    Many thanks for the kind words JJ, what a superb pair of Sunday Scouts :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    That's another fantastic-looking FB Tony :cool: I did my fire-prep last night with a humble Enzo Elver :) :thumbsup:


    LOvely old Robeson :) :thumbsup:

    Handsome pair Paul :) :thumbsup:

    Terrific trio Gary :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Nice pair Rachel :) :thumbsup:

    Hope everyone had a great weekend :) I'm starting off my week with my trusty Hartshead Barlow and a German Jack for Metal Monday ;) :thumbsup:

    Your lambsfoot knives are beauties, Bill! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: With that one, I can hear the bagpipes skirling. ;)

    Prestigious pair, John! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Do they fight over who gets to ride in the pocket slip?

    So a Fieldmaster will be fine reminder of a great family story about Mom & Dad! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    (When I tried to determine the optimal SAK for me, I only looked at the Tinker "side of the SAK family" with backside Phillips driver; had no use for a corkscrew, so I didn't even look at the Spartan "descendants". Ironically, in picking up secondhand SAKs at gun and knife shows, I've ended up with a Huntsman, the corkscrew Fieldmaster counterpart. :rolleyes:)

    Fine tribute to your grandma! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Treasure those keepsakes she gave you!

    A fortunate find like that will have you going back for more! ;):cool::cool:

    When I saw the box you posted, I thought, "That number should be easy for me to remember: first 2 digits make the only 2-digit perfect number, and last 2 digits are my birth year." So then I looked at a photo of mine and the model number is 2857. So now I wonder if I really have the same Black Box Winchester as you posted (my eyes are less than reliable these days o_O).

    Sounds like your son is raising some interesting livestock! :):cool: I've walked at least 6 miles each day except 5 since last March 11, both for exercise and sanity, but almost all of mine has been "urban hiking" through neighborhoods within 3 miles of my house.

    Thanks for the additional info about your knives. :) I have a wood and a stag navaja de campaña from JJ Martinez, but both are inox (despite my daughter specifically requesting carbon in a shop in Granada, over the salesman's objections :mad:).

    Captivating couple of Camillus scouts, JJ! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for the "weather report", Steve. :) That American Jack is an attractive beast! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Admirable single-blade sowbelly, Dean! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the encouraging words, gentlemen. :)

    Inspired pairing, Rachel! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: The glitter above the ebony reminds me of the Milky Way spreading through the blackness of otherwise relatively-empty night sky!


    Cheerful color and splendid grain! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    31 pockets filled with knives would be quite a workout, Jack! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Great photo of your HHB with watery background, and interesting German all-metal example! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    My only "cane" near completion is this red oak branch. The bend at the top is a serviceable handle, although I'm considering topping it with some kind of pipe joint from the hardware store for a better grip. I have a rubber tip on the bottom.

    Superb knife, José; I always enjoy seeing that one! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Gary, your eyes are better than mine!
    My black box Winchester is indeed a 15 2857 as the tang is stamped like yours, and not a 15 2851.
    Must have been a mix up somewhere down the line. I do have the proper box liner, yet incorrect box top it seems. Good catch!
