Thanks a lot, Jack!!! The 66 is definitely pocket friendly!Many thanks JJ, two terrific knives there my friend, and a reminder my own Calf Roper is due some pocket time
Your burley Saynor Lamb is a very cool piece of old Sheffield steel; the lovely 25 makes a smashing pocket partner, as well!
Oh come on Gary! Saber grinds are great! They are perfect for spreading all sorts of the finest delectables. Butter, peanut butter, apple butter, almond butter, sour cream, cheese whiz, brie, caramel, salted caramel, etc.
As a good southern man, I enjoy a good buttermilk biscuit. The saber grind is quite efficient for the spreading of grape, strawberry, blackberry, fig, apple, apricot, and muscadine jellies. However you may want something a bit thinner behind the edge to get good separation on your biscuit hemispheres.
The Trestle Pine is of course one of the finest spreading saber grinds out there but nothing quite spreads like a Northwoods. I suggest anyone that hasn’t experienced the spreading power of a saber grind with the heat treat scale still intact, flock to eBay with a five hundred dollar bill ready to burn ASAP.
Thanks as always for your kind words GT!!!
