Thanks John !
Thanks Gary !
Don't plan on going any further than the end of the driveway today but thought I'd take these two out and carry them as a pair. Never know what might come up at a minutes notice.
Case Sod Buster and Case Sod Buster Jr. - both CV and both with Stonewashed blades.
But some of those European knives can be tricksters (it's a Joker, after all)! It's actually a big folder:
Very cool Puukko partner with your Hartshead, for your working pair; the grip on the Marttiini looks like you'll get an excellent handle purchase, sweet!
Many thanks to you, Gary!!!
Quite a hefty Euro-beauty; the grain pattern is wonderful on your beefy slicer!
I think you’re right about the the chestnut sowbelly. I’ve looked around quite a bit and found nothing but old pages and “out of stock” messages. The fact that yours was a gift from Ron puts it over the top! Thanks for the kind words about my Case, it was a gift from my wife this past Christmas, which puts it over the top for me!
Have a good one.
Hope everyone has a nice relaxing Sunday.
A small Cattaraugus for today. Seldom carried or used, but it’s fun little knife.
Toting a couple seafarers today, the Abalone Sowbelly and the Navy Jack.
Thanks a lot for the kind words Gary, it's rare these days that I get a chance to use my knives as much as I have today, and they both performed well. I was having a walk in some local woods yesterday, and there's an 'urban farm' there, where a couple of neighbours of mine work. They've been cutting down a bunch of saplings, and having obtained prior permission, I took one to turn into a staff. I took the bark off, and thinned it down some, and smoothed out all the knots. If I get time tomorrow I'll start sanding it
My girlfriend brought me the Marttinni back from Finland, but that is an inexpensive model, and good value I think
Thanks JJ, yes, excellent grip on that knife. I have large hands, and most Scandinavian knives tend to have relatively large handles I find. I generally prefer a full flat grind to a Scandi or Sabre grind, but it was perfect for the job I was doing today
I love to see those two stunners JJ
gave up ... replaced suspenders with belt. added my 7OT with 1095 blade to what is mentioned in post 184943, page 9248.
(to retain the 1095 theme)
I still can't get photos to upload. "File Too Big" (or words to that affect) oops message.
Thank you Gus
Toby is certainly our joy.
My wife and I never though we could get so attached to a little dog ... We must be getting older lol ... but then again, our girls are in love with him too !
Hi GT, I used a very silly little app on my Iphone called " Ghost in photos" which let you add ghost, aliens and bigfoot to your pics
I used the free version which I promptly deleted after. I can't believe they wanted a monthly subscription for it to remove water marks, high resolution bla bla
There are other apps for the iphone but they all want your money.
Photoshop would probably be ideal for what you are thinking but I don't know anything about ... except that is expensive.
Thank you! The Douk Douk Macina was a special order in 1950.
Thank you, Gary. I agree on the wide edge bevel on the Buck. They are very easy to sharpen.
Thank you, Gary.
I carried this cool Catt today.
